At the age of 11, after years of mimicking songs on the radio from acts such as Tupac Shakur, Outkast and UGK, Jarvis “J. Peeps Da Boss Playa” Peoples started to write original material on his first mixtape and by 15, he was recording regularly. His raps were a reflection of his circumstances in an impoverished neighborhood, creating mini stories of his life as well as honing his writing skills. “If you are able to have your music in the style of a story, there’s no limit to how you can touch people and be successful.”

IAA:  What is your music background?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  I come from a musically inclined family. At an early age, I was always told that I have an “ear” for music. Hearing a song only once, I could easily memorize and recite it. At the age of sixteen, I recorded in an actual studio for the first time, and I have been recording, performing, and growing my fan base ever since.

IAA:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  Recording music serves as my outlet.  I have a story to tell through my music.  I hope that by hearing about my struggles and triumphs, other people will gain the strength to overcome.  I’m competitive by nature, and I feel that being competitive has allowed me to get to the level I am today.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  Everyone can relate to my music.  From the “real” hip hop fans to the “old school fools.” All of my songs mean something, to someone, somewhere. My music can be interpreted in a variety of ways. It just depends on where your head is at, at that moment. My music tells a story we can all relate too.

IAA:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  While my music is not directly aimed toward any certain type of audience, I do pull for the “underdogs ” out there.  You know the ones that under no circumstance should be able to do anything right. They are the ones that you simply just smile and nod when they confess their hopes, dreams, and wishes. They are the people who feel that they will never make it in life.  I want them to look at me, and know that I am doing everything against all odds. I am unstoppable.

IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  Anyone that has ever made music in my lifetime has had some type of influence on me.  From the pioneers such as, LL Cool J, Uncle Luke, and Outkast, to T.I., Jay-Z, and Kanye West. All of these artists have made an impression on me, both personally and musically.  They have proved to me how to play the game, and how not to play it.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  My music is so many things.  It’s a party that doesn’t stop.  It’s the song in the club that you just can’t get enough of.  It’s the type of music you listen to when kicking it with your boys over the weekend.  It just depends on what you like and where you are in your life. It’s something to dance to, something to chillax to, or something to ride to. It’s everything you want it to be right when you need it to be.

IAA:  What makes you stand out to other artists?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  Could it be my camo-gear? Is it my dreaded Mohawk? My energy that is never-ending on stage, or my ability to see the good in all situations? The thing that makes me different from other artists is my sincerity. Each day I wake up, I strive to do my best. I give my all, try my hardest, and do whatever it takes. I’m always the performer, on stage and off. I’m always writing and working on new material. I am an individual.  The things I say, see, and do are to make me better. When I become better, I motivate others to be the best!

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  I am currently working with Drumma boy and the Drum Squad on a new mixtape,  “Go Harder Or Die Trying.”

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  My career goals are broken into categories. Within six months to a year, I want to become a household name and be known locally and worldwide.  Within eighteen months, to three years, I want my first album released, and I want to have my business degree. I want to learn the corporate side of the industry.  Within three to five years, I want to have an impact on the world in a positive way and be performing worldwide.  Within ten years, I want to own and operate several businesses in Alabama. I also plan to start a foundation for children who had a rough childhood like mines and still pursue music full time.  While I understand that things don’t always go as planned, I believe, “Plan your work and work your plan.” I am motivated dedicated, and determined to reach all of my goals.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

J. PEEPS DA BOSS PLAYA:  My fans can reach out to me in a number of ways, and I look forward to corresponding with them about current music,upcoming projects,tour dates, etc. The best ways to contact me are: GOOGLE —> J.
