Jelz, The UK Rapper Seeking To Make A Positive Impact To The Young Lives Inside.
UK rapper Jelz is looking to make a positive impact in the lives of younger generations with the official release of his newest single ‘ Fight Till Its Over. ‘ The single has already featured on
BBC Introducing (25/2/17)
Fight Till Its Over was produced at studios belonging to Jools Holland with Dutch producer Guus Hoevenaars (Miss Saigon, Soapbox Studios (Atlanta) 50 Cent, Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, Leona Lewis, Neyo, Usher) and Kieran Guy (Drummer for British pop singer JONES). The single also features the powerful and soulful vocals of Off Balance artist and the UK’s latest one to watch, Zulu.
The message behind this track is to encourage listeners to fight for their dreams and aspirations whilst also overcoming personal battles and struggles. Jelz who is also a qualified lecturer in Music Technology believes that music is specifically key to the empowering and inspiring of young people worldwide. Music amongst other avenues possesses the power to enable young people to shape and make positive life decision. Jelz currently works in a high security young offender’s prison, where each day through music he challenges young people to think about their life journey and choices.
Jelz says “The UK urban music scene is at an all time high, however lyrically what are we feeding our young people. What values and life lessons are we informally teaching them? In my class room music provides an excellent platform for young people to express themselves, however at the same time we are able to discuss and challenge their views whilst also attempting to show a positive alternative and outlet. They don’t have to cuss and swear, degrade and put down women or glorify the hustle of the streets. As such legends that have come
before us Michael Jackson, Bob Marley let us use music to yes express ourselves but most of all positively empower, encourage, teach, inspire and progress.”
Jelz plans to follow up this release with several others through out the year whilst also releasing video content. Jelz also truly brings his art to life during his live performance backed by his live band. You can keep up to date with all things Jelz at www.jelzmusic.com.
