With the release of his second single, “Champion,” and his debut album on the way, the rapper is indeed an unstoppable force.
THEUNKNOWN was born WoodJerry Brasier on July 9, 1994. The rapper is recognized for his incredibly wavy vocals and profound lyrics, mostly retelling the story of his life. At a young age, the artist traveled across the world, his family hoping for a better future. He was raised in Orange, New Jersey, and later moved to Boston, Massachusetts, in 2005. No stranger to the feeling and struggles of adapting to his new environments, THEUNKNOWN found comfort in music which became his constant companion.
In 2011, THEUNKNOWN began making music under his then moniker, KiD JeRa. He started uploading his music on the internet, and it captivated users and fans in the digital space. As KiD JeRa, the rapper already had a promising start, propelling him to land other opportunities in the music industry.
Later on, his music evolved, and THEUNKNOWN found the right fuel that would generate a buzz for his name on social media in 2017. His sound developed, and it reflected his growth as an artist. Eventually, the rapper was able to release his first single called “Bass,” produced by Justin Kase. After reaching millions of global listeners through SoundCloud, THEUNKNOWN gained the boost he needed to pursue an even bigger goal and launch himself in the mainstream music scene. He then went on to release his second single entitled “Champion,” produced by Azaleh. The single is currently streaming and available on major music streaming platforms, including Apple and Spotify.
THEUNKNOWN is currently working on his debut album entitled Melancholic, set to reach his fans and global music lovers in 2022.
Instead of limiting his talent by sticking to one category of music, THEUNKNOWN loves exploring where his music instincts would take him. He never backs down from a challenge, and when he sees an opportunity where he can grow as a music artist, the rapper grabs and commits to it the best he can. “I love the feeling of switching up my sound, creating music in multiple, different genres. That right there is what keeps me moving on the go,” said the artist.
Asked what motivates him to strive for the best, THEUNKNOWN shared that he looks up to some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Michael Jackson, 2Pac, Biggy, Wu-Tang Clan, Eminem, Outkast, G-Unit, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, and many others.
In five years, THEUNKNOWN sees himself on top of his game and making a positive change in the world.
