Emerging Baton Rouge hip-hop artist JIREH unveils his newest EP, B-Sides, with an exclusive premiere on V13 – delivering a unique blend of Southern charm and refreshing authenticity that showcases his unique musical identity.

Refusing to conform to expectations, JIREH’s individuality is on full display in the eight tracks of the EP. Combining his southern flare with unparalleled lyricism in a dynamic fusion of the alternative hip-hop and rap genres, JIREH brings the listener an exciting and soulful experience. Embodying themes of self-assurance, self-reliance, and love boundaries, B-Sides serves as a testament to JIREH’s artistic evolution, as he continues to explore his unique sound showcasing his Southern roots infused with a smooth, raw, and wise energy that makes it one-of-a-kind that can only be described as an “alternative to the algorithm-driven mainstream.”

JIREH comments on the music, stating:

“I hope people have as much fun listening to B-SIDES as I did while I was creating it.”

This isn’t the first release for the rising artist. JIREH’s previous EP Quit Playing and the album A Guide 2 Recognizing Your Saints has amassed a multitude of streams across all DSPs and firmly established him as a serious artist to be contended with in the industry. B-Sides is a testament to JIREH’s dedication to his art, as with one listen, it quickly becomes obvious the young rapper has matured in both lyricism and musicality and that he’s here with one mission – to embed his name amongst those of the greats.


B-Sides Track Listing:
1. FYE
5. 2 MUCH
6. HOLY GHOST (interlude)
