Japo Fresh (above) is said to be one of the next artist to emerge from the depths of the “SoundCloud Rapper” category, The 20 year old south Florida artist has over 25,000 plays on SoundCloud and he brings various styles of music to the rap scene. Coming from south Florida Japo was born and raised in west palm beach before moving to Daytona beach (central Florida) with his father when he was 13 years old because his mother passed away, “I just want to show people that various styles of music can be done from one person and it’s okay to be yourself and do new things you don’t have to try to be something that your not or what everyone wants you to be just because you’re from a certain environment ” said the rapper when asked about his styles of music. Japo seems very open to doing songs with other artists as he has tons of features on SoundCloud with different artists across Florida. His biggest one coming with MikeO2ff from Drebo’s (Fetty Wap’s artist) 2ff music group in west palm beach, the song “pull up slide” they did got over 10k in a month around November of last year and now has over 15k plays on SoundCloud and still moving.

The rapper told us that he doesn’t have any projects out because he’s solely focused on branding his self and building a fan base, ” I’d rather just keep putting out good singles & when I feel like the time is right for a project then I’ll put one out too many people are doing the same thing & you can have a lengthy catalog with quality singles you don’t necessarily have to start out with mixtapes” said Japo when asked about why he doesn’t have a project out. He recently put out his first solo track since the end of last year titled “jus wanna” and it’s doing numbers already on SoundCloud it has the potential to be the next big summer hit with the right promotion & support.
