There are a couple different approaches for a hip-hop artist coming up: either do a lot of remixes over other artists beats to show your talent or take the tougher (and riskier) route and create original material. Most of the time both of these come into play but I prefer when an artist can separate themselves by putting out original material.
Jeff Chery is an artist that puts out dope original material with no reliance on covering other artists. Plus the New York native is only getting better with his first release in 2011, “Poser”. Currently Jeff Chery is working on his next project A Starry Night, which is TBA on the release date but should be dope.
If you like the above song, you will really like “Someday” (download), one of my favorite tracks by Jeff Chery and featured on our “Best You Never Heard pt. II“.
