Jamel Deon chops it up with Stop The Breaks to discuss various topics such as inspiration behind "The Breather", who he thinks stands out in the rap game right now, music industry trends, and his future plans.
STB: Talk to me about the making of your latest project. What was the inspiration behind it?
Jamel Deon: "The Breather” is basically a single that I feel a lot of people can rock with just because of the vibe. It’s just super gritty. It’s crazy how the inspiration for the record came about too. I was sitting on the beat for a while but I just felt I was in a dead spot musically.
I felt I hit a major plateau. I was going through a lot mentally, spiritually, & emotionally. & even a homie of mine, KJ was telling me how I haven’t been at my best lyrically based off my last project. However, that random rush I needed came at the right time & I just started spazzing.
I didn’t care to stick a specific subject matter or anything. I just wanted to go off on the song & get people amped. I knew it was a banger once I got the confirmation from everyone that been supporting my music from the jump.
