Young Compton rising rapper Jehkai unveils new emotional trap single “This Ain’t The Life” featured alongside with official video
The new single produced by HoodWithAnotha1 (Boosie Badazz, OBN Jay) and JM Productions Worldwide, the track reveals another side to the up-and-coming Compton emcee, with his vocal abilities and meditative bars at the forefront.
An official music video – which features the two rappers flexing their ice, throwing bands, and driving sportscars – is streaming now via YouTube.
The 19-year-old rapper, singer, and artist was born the sixth of eight kids and immediately understood hardship, living in the projects with his grandmother, and eventually in a van. Nevertheless, he immersed himself in music, listening to everyone from Michael Jackson to Tupac to Drake. Jehkai dropped his first independent single, “The Field,” in 2020 and honed his signature style on follow-up “Glory To God,” blending new age street rap, impressive pitch, and vocal acrobatics.
Jehkai states: “When you listen to me, I hope you relate and want to hear the next chapter,” Jehkai says. “I want you to think. I want you to cry. I want you to feel my pain and maybe, because of it, feel better.”
He gathered more than 1.2M streams with such tracks as “True Colors,” “Steal Me,” “Life Goes On,” “Trenches,” “Dead Homies,” and “Gang Signs.”
