Compton, CA rapper Jehkai raps of the hardships of living in Los Angeles in his latest single “To Live and Die in LA.” The emotive trap cut is also joined by an official music video, which you can watch below.
Jehkai made his Atlantic Records debut last year with the summer-ready banger, “Frostbite (ft. Bankroll Freddie).” An official music video – which features the two rappers flexing their ice, throwing bands, and driving sportscars – is streaming now via YouTube.
Jehkai’s music feels like a tour through his hometown of Compton, CA. 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.
