JehzanExclusive is a 27-year old filipino-american artist from Honolulu, HI.
Her message is simple and necessary: positivity, ambition, work ethic, and passion.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Jehzan was exposed to all types of musical genres - primarily reggae, r&b, and hip hop/rap. Although she played the ukulele and clarinet as a kid, Jehzan's “rap” journey began with spoken word poetry. At age 17, she attended a youth conference at University of California - Berkeley (UCB). The curriculum offered art & writing classes as a means for students to reflect and express themselves. Shortly after, she began recording her poems over beats on GarageBand. Overtime, Jehzan developed a love for making hip hop/rap music and doing live performances; all while she served 6 years in the Hawaii Army National Guard and earned her B.S.B.A in Marketing from Hawaii Pacific University (HPU) in 2016. Along with building her brand and making music, Jehzan teaches business and hip hop education to youth and college students.
Jehzan's newest EP, Island Waves & City Haze (Vol. 3), released on October 29, 2018 and is available for listening/download/purchase via Soundcloud, Youtube, and Bandcamp. Her first streaming single “The Real” (Prod. BXMBZ) is out now on all digital music outlets, including the official music video on her Youtube channel. Her projects - Island Waves & City Haze Vol. 2 (2017) & Island Waves & City Haze Vol. 1 (2016), are available for streaming/download via BandCamp & Soundcloud. A growing and outstanding performer in Hawaii’s hip hop scene, Jehzan consistently drops singles and visuals to her Soundcloud and Youtube channel, and promotes heavily on social media. In collaboration with Bay area artist & videographer, Young, Dedicated, Proper (Y.D.P), the Palm Treez EP was released in summer 2017, and is available on all digital music outlets.
Jehzan regularly performs at various venues around Hawaii, including opening for artists Ruby Ibarra and Medusa. She will be going on her first independent international tour to Davao, Philippines in February 2019. She competed in the Team Backpack “Live Cypher Draft” in Los Angeles, CA (2015). Jehzan also performed for 4 consecutive years at HPU’s annual talent show, hosted at Hawaii Theatre (2014-2017).
