We recently sat down with Jaeo Draftpick to learn more about him and his recent mixtape “Road 2 More Riches“.

Us: How did you come up with your artist name?

Jaeo Draftpick: I came up with my artist name through a nickname from when I was younger, I always predominantly only wear Jordan’s and they call Jordan sneakers “jo’s” for short. So thats where the Jaeo came from and the Draftpick is from a group I was in when I was younger called the Draftpicks.

Us: What inspired you to start making music?

Jaeo Draftpick: What inspired me to make music was my passion for music, the love for hip hop being a New Yorker and seeig the presence NY hip hop has on the genre. Having gone to high school with a few successful artist, I saw that there was money to be made with the talent I had of rapping and making songs.

Us: Who is/are your biggest influence(s) and why?

Jaeo Draftpick: Being a New Yorker, my biggest influences in hip hop were basically all type of 90’s hip hop, from Jay-Z, to Nas, to Capone N Noreaga and of course the Long Island rappers like Rakim, EPMD.

Us: What do you want your fans to feel when they hear your music?

Jaeo Draftpick: When people listen to my music I want them to be able to visually experience what I am singing about. I want them to feel that my music is genuine and authentic, because what I rap about are true life experiences and things that I have seen in my environment. Especially being from Long Island, I want to put really give Long Island a spot light that it doesnt have not only in music but in showcasing NY in general.

Us: What can we expect from you? What are you working on? What do you have coming out?

Jaeo Draftpick: I recently just dropped a new mixtape, Road 2 More Riches. Thats the new project we are pushing with the two singles “Rollin” and “I’m Good” that are getting radio play on Satellite and FM radio stations in NY. I am sponsored by Sx Liquors which is Trey Songz liquor company.

Us: Congratulations on your sponsorship boss and the radio campaign that you’ve launched. We wish you the best of luck and look forward to celebrating with you with either of the two songs make the Billboard Charts.
