Jean Michael is excited about new EP

Namibian Hip-Hop talent Jean-Michael Ripuree Tjirare is readying himself for the release of his seven track Extended Play (EP).

The seven track musical project will be titled Color Me Black. The rapper said he chose to work on a seven track EP because he wants the album to appeal to his fans and for it to be received a bit more personally. “I chose seven tracks because it’s a intimate album and also just to put out new material as a marker and reminder of who Jean – Michael is,” he shared.

Jean-Michael said his fans should expect authenticity from his new music. “My supporters and listeners can expect originality as usual and honest good music,” he told unWrap.online. He said he always aims to grow his musical talents and did a few things different creatively for Color Me Black. “Creatively I did dig deep into my essence and found parts of me I needed to. Am always growing musically,” Jean-Michael.

The rapper says he does not divert from his usual sound for his new project but it will be a bit more edgy. “The EP is not entirely different from my other work. I am still me just more refined,” he said.

He says he wants to perform with a live band for his shows in 2019 and has a single titled Ozombepo featuring Nga-I. “Expect a live act. I am working with a band and preparing for shows. My new single titled Ozombepo featuring Nga-I premiers on Donlu Africa tomorrow.” he concluded.

Jean Michael is no stranger to the Hip-Hop community in Namibia and he was an active member of Run Nams. His debut album ‘Rise and Shine’ was released in 2014 and received rave reviews from many newspapers in Namibia. He was nominated for the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMA) in 2014 and won an award for Best Newcomer in 2014 at the NAMAs.

The rapper has a catalogue with motivational and relatable music that touches on struggles that he deals with on a day-to-day basis and sometimes he even tackles political issues on some of his songs.
