If you’re a creator in the digital age, it can often feel like you’re churning out content piece after content piece and throwing it into a void of dismal algorithms, wavering follow counts, and low engagement rates. But that should never stop you from pouring your heart into what you’re passionate about – in fact, you should use it to double down on what you love. Jimmy B Fearless celebrates the journey to becoming a truly great artist on the triumphant “Double,” an exciting embodiment of the hard work and passion that it takes to follow your ambition to the life you want to live.
“‘Double’ is an anthem for the people trying to achieve their dreams,” Jimmy tells TREMG. “We put in so much time, effort, and money to achieve our dreams as creators and it can be difficult to be motivated. I hope ‘Double’ can provide that motivation.”
Whether it’s a song like “Double,” a full project like his upcoming The Love is Real LP, or his YFM Sports podcast network, Jimmy constantly gives his all to each and every one of his endeavors. His passion shines through on everything he’s a part of, and it’s refreshingly inspiring to hear. If you’re in a bit of a creative rut, Jimmy has just the energy you need to jumpstart the next chapter of your dreams!
“Every LP I release is a concept album, so the growth is always different,” Jimmy explains. “I think I’m more focused on proving I can rap and more that I make relatable music.”
Hi Jimmy, congrats on your latest single, “Double!” How has it felt for you to share the song with the world and see how your fans are reacting?
It’s amazing and I’m very proud that people like the song!
What does “Double” mean to you?
“Double” is an anthem for the people trying to achieve their dreams. We put in so much time, effort, and money to achieve our dreams as creators and it can be difficult to be motivated. I hope “Double” can provide that motivation.
There are so many motivating lyrics on “Double,” with one of our favorites being “raise your glass way up, ‘cause we on the way up.” Is there a certain line on the song that you’re especially proud of?
I really love that line because it explains that we need to celebrate along the way. Most people don’t celebrate their successes. That’s the line I’m the most proud of.
“Double” touches on your dedication to your art and how you have to push through hard times to make your dreams a reality. When you’re feeling down on yourself, what helps you to get your spark back?
Creating helps me get my spark back. Either for my sports podcast network, YFM Sports, or music. Just creating helps me feel more motivated to do everything else that it takes to make it in music, such as promotion, performing, etc.
Back in March, you posted that you have a new LP coming soon! What has it been like preparing the project, and is there a certain song you’re most excited for fans to hear?
My LP, The Love is Real, is coming soon and “Right Now” is the song I’m excited for everyone to hear. Song comes out June 2nd and it’s a song explaining my anxiety issues.
For anyone who isn’t familiar with your music already, which of your songs would you recommend to them to get a feel for who you are as an artist?
Great question, I would say “Break” from my LP FYE or “Cannibals” from my LP Kobayashi.
How do you feel you’ve grown as an artist since releasing your Kobayashi project last year?
Every LP I release is a concept album, so the growth is always different. I think I’m more focused on proving I can rap and more that I make relatable music.
We at TREMG love getting to know new artists who haven’t gotten the success or attention they deserve. Who are some of your favorite underrated artists at the moment?
Homage, Bobby Deniro, K Fox, and of course myself.
What can your fans look forward to in the rest of 2023?
I’m working on releasing The Love is Real LP and The Ceiling is the Floor LP. A ton of videos and more content with my sports podcast, YFM Sports.
Is there anything else you’d like to mention or say to your fans that the questions didn’t touch on?
If you’re an artist/creator, please continue to work hard and don’t stop.
