""Sounds delightful when you hear love in your ears! The Hip-Hop kid with a crush.""

“I don’t ever let them tell me there are any limits man.,” says an excited Jet 2 (real name Jonathan Ihejeto) in a sit down in his home studio. “Every time that I approach a new song or a new project, I always approach it with that mindset, and that allows me to try and be the best possible artist that I can be.” Speaking with such confidence and faith, it’s no wonder why the Twenty-year-old Jonathan Ihejeto, who’s known as the rapper Jet 2 has amassed quite the following, one that believes in his music, and the message behind it.Born to Nigerian Parents, Hip-Hop was not a part of Jonathan Ihejeto’s life growing up, but the culture would soon become a way of life for the MC. As an early youth, artist such as 2Pac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, The Notorious B.I.G., and Eminem helped shape Jet 2’s love for music, and allowed for Jet to find a unique love for the genre, and the culture. Jet 2 can recall many a instance in which he, even as a six year old, would just fall in love with the radio. “My dad would drop me off at school every day, and on the way to school would be the only time he allowed me to listen to the radio. He didn’t like hip-hop, but for some reason I just gravitated towards it. Whether it was listening to California Love from 2Pac, or Juicy from The Notorious B.I.G., 92.3, and later 100.3 the beat really generated my love for hip-hop.” A great student all throughout his academic life, Jet 2’s life was geared towards his academic success early on, but his love for Hip-Hop is what guided him as he grew older.As Jet 2 enrolled at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles, California, his love for music turned into something much more serious. After being told by virtually everyone around him about his skills concerning rapping, Jet 2 began to finally take rapping serious. “Around school, people would rap, and have freestyle battles, that would draw crowds and I wanted to see if I was actually as good as I thought I was. I would rap and draw high praise from the crowds attending, and I took that as a reflection of how could I was, and how good I could possibly be. So that’s when I started recording any and everywhere that I could, and that’s when I started to focus on honing my craft, and approaching my music as a possible career path, and not a hobby.” All throughout high school, Jet 2 recorded a plethora of songs, and freestyles, that attributed to his name garnering a buzz across Dorsey high school, and the city of Los Angeles.There are plenty of things in the future to look forward to from the artist known as Jet 2. His project, “Under The Radar” is due out in November and with Jet 2’s prolific work ethic, there is no telling what the future holds for him. While gathering and selecting songs for “Under The Radar” Jet 2 has already began working on his next project, “Mission Back to The Terminal” due out in the beginning of next year. As with everything involving Jet 2’s music, he is determined to make sure that his product his a reflection of his views on life, and his values as well. “When you do music, and actually take it seriously as a career, you then have a voice.” Jet 2’s music is filled with stories about everyday life, and the struggles the average person encounters in trying to make a life better for himself, and the people around him. He also speaks on having a voice, and possibly having music that can define the times that his peers are in right now. “With my music, I have a true desire to express my inner most desires and the world that surrounds me” says Jet 2 to his manager. “I want my music to be an expression of myself, my team, my peers, and my culture because at the end of the day, I do this for my culture and I hope that everyone can hear that in my music.”
