JERMAINE BROKE MY PHONE AFTER I INTERVIEWED HIM WHAT A JERK DON’T EVEN LISTEN TO THIS.
Just kidding. He was there when it happened though. I knew of Jermaine for a couple years through my sister and other people in Baltimore’s black arts scene. I finally got to meet the man, myth and legend at an event he coordinated with Edgar Reyes (listen to Edgar’s episode here!) at Impact Hub Baltimore. He worked in radio for a time in Baltimore and was shocked to see all the changes the Rotunda and the recording studios have made. We sat down and got to talking about his life and art, and he also gave me some advice about getting my name out there and becoming the person I want to be. When he’s not making it happen at Impact Hub 5 days a week, Jermaine’s pretty active on his IG account. You can spot some of his work around town but I’ll leave that adventure to you!
