His name is JBlvd.
His sound is versatile and stye his style is undeniable.
We linked up with the florida musician to get an in depth interview and we must say, it was quite an experience for us here at the ABOG headquarters. JBlvd is one of those individuals that remains humble although he knows the amount of talent that he has. In a music scene where materialism is a trend, JBlvd knows how to deliver lines that people want to hear while still staying true to himself and his kin. On behalf of the whole Aborigine family we hope you all enjoy this artist spotlight.
BaariBoy – Pleasure to have you here with us! How did you get the name JBlvd and what does it mean to you?
Jblvd – Well, I originally came up with my homeboys rapping they called me JP. When I started making music with HotboyGreedy and Captain Jodi I took on the name Pizzleboy or Pizzle for short. From there, I think since from 2015 going in to 2016 I started taking my career as an artist seriously. I didn’t want people to call me the names I was associated with in the streets and from my homeboys. The reason behind the name Jblvd, well first my name starts with J. The reason I decided to go with Blvd is because I’m originally from Palm Beach county, but I lived in Haiti and now I’m located in Brevard. I have plans on moving to other places. I feel like I went through a bunch of different boulevards in my life, a whole bunch of living environments. So thats what Jblvd means to me.

BaariBoy – Are you originally from Florida?
JBlvd – I was born in Florida in Boynton beach. I am from a city called Delray in Palm Beach.
BaariBoy – What would you say is your genre? How would you describe your sound and what does your music say about who you are?
Jblvd -I would say my genre is between Rap and R&B whatever the new word for that is. My music, my sound is just me and how I’m feeling . My sound is JBlvd
BaariBoy – You show so much pride and homage to your culture in your music. How much does your Haitian background influence on your sound?
JBlvd – I just feel that stand out simply because I sound a lil different than everybody else. The different person always wins, you can hate or you can like it but no matter what you do, you’re gonna talk about it cause its different. I guess me being Haitian, I kinda come with an accent and then the fact that I use creole words in my music… I guess it does play into my sound. I like to call it my cheat code because I can go into two worlds at one time.

BaariBoy – You are a very young man with a bright future ahead of you. Most parents in the west indian community dont usually support the whole music scene. How do your parents and your family feel about your music?
JBlvd – My parents are supportive of my music, its hard for them to come into my world cause its not of their generation but in the ways they can support me they do. In the Haitian community they dont really want us to lean towards music unless you are playing guitars or some sort of instruments. They want you to be a doctor, a lawyer or nurse… If you not that you nothing. Im just trying to prove my parents wrong I’m trying to tell them, “Baby one song and we can be out of here thats all it takes.” Now we making more than Doctors, lawyers and nurses all that. Just one song….
