JessB, of Kenyan descent, is a passionate and energetic artist who is quickly stamping her mark as the newest queen of rap and hip-hop in New Zealand.
After a breakout year in 2017, JessB continues to move from strength to strength, taking influence from many of great female hip-hop artists, including Missy Elliot. With the release of her debut EP ‘Bloom’ in March, JessB is laying the foundations for a stronghold in the music industry.
She has now racked up over 1.5 million Spotify streams and received spins across all major urban, dance and tastemaker stations including Mai FM, Flava FM, George FM and bFM.
She opened for Stormzy's 2 NZ shows, and has played Aotearoa's biggest festivals - Rhythm & Vines, Northern Bass, Soundsplash and Auckland City Limits.
Continuing to break new ground - she is the first MC to perform on David Dallas's '64 bars' - a RedBull backed project whereby MC's are invited to take the mic and freestyle over a fresh beat.
"She came in and handled it first take. She's got a vibe, and she's super confident" says Dallas.
