Mista Mean (Jaymes Mentor), is hard driven to make an impact on hip hop internationally. His music is the perfect balance of what hip hop is with a nice touch of what hip hop was. His provoking yet witty verses along with his distinct voice, intriguing wordplay, catchy verses and timely deliveries makes him arguably one of the most original and talented hip hop artists in Canada.
His musical style is drawn from his hip hop influences Redman, Method Man, Kurupt, DMX, Starang Wonda (OGC), Eminem and the late 2Pac. However, he boldly studies current rappers such as Gucci, Nipsey huslte, TechN9ne & russ for their business acumen in the music industry.
Currently unsigned, he chooses the independent route as it allows him to remain creatively free. Although his music can be considered dark, he always finds a way to keep the track edgy with his catchy hooks.
And his onstage presence is energetic like no other. One of the rare performers that sounds the same live as he does on a track.
Has opened for the following hip hop acts:
French Montana, Jeru Da Damaja, MOP, Kirko Bangz, Bobby Valentino, Pusha-t, Mobb Deep & NORE.
