Whether you’re familiar with North Philadelphia native Jaidyn or not, consider his new video for “The Power” to be your proper introduction. Chances are, you’ll want to know more about the kid once the clips fades out.
The rising emcee caught a buzz three years back with his debut release, Enjoy, but he’s been working painstakingly ever since to establish himself as an all-around artist. That much is evident in “The Power,” our latest taste of his forthcoming, Heaven Beyond The Streets mixtape. His approach is confident and engaging throughout the Will Ngo-directed visuals, as Jaidyn combines bravado and personal revelations in his rhymes. In one line he’s boasting about his triumphs in the bedroom, and in another he’s contemplating how to handle the impact of depression.
Backed by an ill, vocal sample-driven production that sounds timeless and fresh all at once, Jaidyn makes it clear that he’s here to stay with “The Power.” Heaven Beyond The Streets is due out soon.
