Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: My name is Jet Rogers, I’m from Greensboro, North Carolina. I started rapping in 2013 but I didn’t take it seriously until my junior year of high school around 2014/2015 with my friend Desepray. Music has always been in my life. As a child, I remember my great grandmother playing the organ in her living room. My dad was an artist and my mother played guitar. My mom always tells me she would play music to get me to stop crying when I was a baby. Clearly music has always brought me some type of joy.

My ultimate goal in life is to be able to really be in my own space like the Michael’s (Tyson, Jordan, Jackson), Kanye, Pharrell, Drake, or Travis. I just want inspire greatness no matter the topic.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : It has really been a blessing for me. This pandemic had brought me closer to my family, and my friends. I got to really sit down and plan out my music and where I want my career to go. I’ve always looked at this time as a minor set back for a major comeback.
