Strictly For The Heads
“JESSWAR’s control over the microphone when she performs live is reminiscent of some of the greatest MCs to ever grace the mic; she brings unwavering energy and a myriad of party songs to the stage.
Being tipped as one of the hottest up-and-coming artists in Australia by several outlets has only made her more in-demand, and 2017 looks to be the year that she stops playing supports and starts getting supported.”
Hard hitting production paired wit vocals that make you stop and stare. Jesswar brings the energy out in full force with her music videos as well. Definitely one to keep tabs on.
Brisbane-based, rapper, Jesswar isn’t just fighting for recognition, but battling centuries of marginalisation through her music. Reclaiming her savagery “as a proud Fijian”, and her womanhood in her fiery debut Savage, the young rapper refuses to restrain herself. “[I’m] not censoring myself for anyone,” she told Red Bull earlier this year. Striving to be the representation she never experienced herself growing up, music isn’t only a means of celebrating her queerness but a message to her listeners that they are seen, heard and belong in the industry. With a number of projects and EPs set for release this year, Jesswar is about to take Australia’s hip-hop scene by storm.
