Bio

JLP is a 20-year-old Grime artist from Canberra, who brings witty wordplay and complex, schemed flows to 140bpm. Since discovering hip-hop early in his teens, JLP quickly moved onto grime, finding it sparked a flame that couldn’t be extinguished, even if attempted. In only 5 short years of musical releases, and building a reputation as ‘JLP’, he had been recently been traveling up and down the east coast of Australia playing shows with grime associate ‘Macca’. JLP has shared the stage with national & international hip-hop / grime artists including Chillinit, Wombat, DJ Barely Legal , Turquoise Prince, Alex Jones (Dr Flea) , Fraksha, , Diem, Scotty Hinds, Nerve, Shadow, Mitchos da Menace, Talakai, Semantix & Genisis Owusu, to name just a few. JLP’s versatility is something different. He can switch from a sombre, melodic and personal touch, to a grime sound that is guaranteed to give the crowd stankface. He has a diverse ear for grime and strives to bring quality content with every release, with one of his recent tracks, “5 years”, hitting a solid 85,000 streams on Spotify in just a few short months.
