By Jack Barnes
Getmybuzzup: Thanks allowing us to interview you. For those that don’t know you, can you please reintroduce yourself?
Jerrod: Officially checking in like ya boyfriend, it’s Jerrod Brosean. Originally, I’m from Magee, MS, where I earn my black belt in morality. I would define myself as an RnB Hippie. I have no grey areas on how I feel about anyone or anything. And I’m here to return the love that’s be given to me over the years.
Getmybuzzup: Thanks for that. We’ve been watching and you’ve had a great year so far. You’ve finally reached an official date on the album. Tell us how you prepared for that?
Jerrod: It took a lot for me to gather my thoughts on releasing a solo album. But I prayed and meditated on the matter. I hesitated for so long with my calling, but it wasn’t until Dec. 25, 2016 at 12:44 am, that’s when I knew I was ready. That’s what prepared me.
Getmybuzzup: Interesting, what happened on that date that changed you?
Jerrod: Never ask God for something you’re not ready to see. That day was a wake up call. On that night, two white police officers stood over me with their guns in my back. I had been falsely profiled. And without asking me what really happened, I was thrown on my stomach and placed in handcuffs. At that moment, all I could think about was my mom and what I could have been doing with my life. Once they realized that I was the actual victim, I was set free. I drove straight to LA. That moment let me know, I can’t put my life on hold anymore.
