On The Come Up With New Artist Baby Jesus :
Charlotte, North Carolina native “Baby Jesus” began rapping in December 2014. In January 2015, with less than a month of experience as an artist, in Jan 2015 he went on with the release of his debut mixtape titled “NonFiction”. It acquired over 10,000 streams in the first 48 hours with no prior knowledge in the music field, & NO promotion outside of his Instagram account. His buzz quickly took over Charlotte and surrounding areas rapidly raising awareness to Charlotte’s music scene.
He then booked a spontaneous flight to Austin, Texas for “SXSW 2015” a well known annual music festival for upcoming artists; and also a popular gateway to the music industry. There he received the opportunity to perform his new music on seven different stages over the course of three days thanks to fellow Charlotte native recording artist Deniro Farrar. What everyone then learned was that ‘Baby Jesus’ wasn’t just another local rapper who happened to put out a great project with his first mixtape, but this kid was also a fearless performer. With no prior experience performing, let alone speaking on a microphone period, Baby Jesus was a stand out performer amongst the masses. By the time SXSW ended large crowds were chanting the lyrics to his single “Baby Jesus”. Some people even approached him for autographs. Baby Jesus acquired a numerous amount of fans from all over the country over the weekend in Austin,TX. A weekend that he planned to spend passing out the 2,000 copies of his mixtape he packed in his two suitcases.
