Jabee is a rapper from Oklahoma City with a story to tell. Armed with memories of his own experiences filtered through the lens of books by the likes of Huey Newton, Assata Shakur, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jabee’s album, “Black Future,” is full of socially conscious and introspective songs that bang, a rarity in present day Hip-Hop. He acknowledges the past and the present, but as the album’s title suggests, Jabee looks towards the future and inspires the listener to get active and create the desired outcome for oneself and one’s community. If our cosign isn’t enough, look up what Sway and Public Enemy’s Chuck D have to say about the up and coming emcee.
We caught up with Jabee before a show, and talked to him about his upbringing in Oklahoma City, poverty, Okalhoma City’s music scene, being racially profiled and arrested for nothing, the independent music grind, appearing on Sway in the Morning, getting cosigned by Chuck D, and so much more. We has a great time talking with Jabee and this episode is a must listen.
