Getmybuzzup: How long have you been in the music industry?
Jake Supreme: I started recording music when I was 14 years old and I have honed in on my craft since then, I got my first real industry experience working for a record label when I was finishing college now that I am 25 I feel like I have a real understanding of what it takes to be a successful indie artist.
Getmybuzzup: How did you get started in the first place?
Jake Supreme: One day me and my friends were in study hall messing around spitting freestyles and recording it on an old iPod touch with a T-Pain app. After school, that day my one friend who was also my neighbor, suggested we try to record a real track, so we set up on his PC in his basement with an old computer mic and I recorded My first record at 14 to Fabolous “Breathe” instrumental. We brought it to school and people liked it and wanted more and it never stopped from there.
Getmybuzzup: How would you describe your latest single?
Jake Supreme: My latest single “See Me” is now available on all platforms it’s a hype track. It’s supposed to be empowering. For me, it was somewhat therapeutic because of what triggered that track. I wrote the song during a time where I was down on my luck Any finances, I had just recently had a backpack of mine stolen out of my vehicle that contained my MacBook along with other important things in it. I felt like whoever did that didn’t want to see me win so I took it personally and I started grinding, got my money up, and bought back everything that was in the bag and then some. Sometimes the best revenge is just to level up as a person and I believe everybody has had a situation where somebody wants to see you fail, but it’s important to know that you got another level in you.

Jake Supreme: Jay Z, Wiz Khalifa, Billy Danze, Black Eye Peas, Tupac, Mac Miller, Logic, Meek Mill, J Cole
Getmybuzzup: How do you go about writing and producing a song and what is your process?
Jake Supreme: Usually I pick a beat first and nowadays I use mostly in-house producers that I know personally or have built relationships with online so that we have rights to our masters. Then when it comes to writing I do write my own songs. There are times where I am either working with a feature or when I’m making music in my hip hop soul group MANiFEST! HB that we might have multiple writers on a track. But I write any and everywhere on my phone or in the car. There are some tracks we do freestyle but it really depends on the mood and the message.
Getmybuzzup: What is the concept behind your forthcoming project?
Jake Supreme: This project is a result of the emotions and the feelings I have had over this past year or two. I’ve been through a lot of highs and lows especially in this Covid era.
