A graduate of the University of California, Merced, 25 year old Jamal Cristopher’s following has grown yearly since his college beginnings in 2011, recently coming to a head in 2016 with the release of the single, “Out Of Luck” amassing rave reviews from some of Hip-Hop’s most prominent curators such as YouHeardThatNew, This is 50, Hip-Hop Vibe, and more.
The city of Leimert Park, and Los Angeles as a whole has been more than welcoming to Cristopher’s rise as Cristopher provides a sound that’s missing and needed in the streets of Los Angeles. All the while, still being able to deliver sounds that garners the interest of his age demographic, on “Call Me When You Get This” Cristopher provides a unique blend of concept driven melodic music, centering on concepts that aren’t prominent in today’s youth in Hip-Hop but also providing sounds that are in line with who he is as a 25 year old kid.
With a slew of impressive releases, Cristopher has been called “One of the fastest rising stars on the West Coast” according to Hip-Hop Vibe.
As 2016 comes to a close, the past year suggest that Jamal can be a potential player in West Coast Hip-Hop for now, and for years to come. With his new project “Call Me When You Get This” due out in stores in 2017, Cristopher conveys a message in his music that tries and does prove that there is a new voice in Leimert Park, one that offers a brand new perspective on what it means to come of age in Leimert Park, Los Angeles, California.
