We were fortunate enough to talk ish with Chicago’s very own…JReal Precise!!! JReal Precise is not just a rapper or singer but a overrall entertainer. JReal begin pursuing an entertainer career at an early age and definitely doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Let’s get to know JReal Precise…
3 Voices: Introduce yourself. Let the people know exactly who JReal Precise is and what JReal Precise does.
JReal Precise: I am J’Real Precise, a singer, rapper, motivational speaker, and youth mentor. I started singing at the age of 3, and been motivated to change lives using entertainment as a platform since the age of 9. I also founded a youth organization at the age of 15 with my history teacher Pete Retsos, and have been mentoring youth and making great music since then.
3 Voices: Wow that’s very impressive. What actually inspired you to rap and sing? Who are some of your musical influences?
JReal Precise: My thoughts & experiences inspire me to do music. Back in the day, there was an era where artist expressed their lives through music. I feel like i was dropped into the wrong era because i take my experiences and things i see others going through, and put it through song. Influences include Michael Jackson, Eminem, Nas, and Darius Rucker.
3 Voices: You have a point there but we have faith that you can bring that era back. We saw in your bio that you have some acting credits, one with Angela Bassett. What have you acted in & do you plan on continuing to act in the future?
JReal Precise: Yes, i was in “Of Boys & Men” with Angela Bassett, as well as some other independent films. I do plan on continuing to be an actor as i am great at it. I also write movies as well and soon to film and act in them. In Chicago, i have been signed to an agency since i was 14 and they are continuing to find me more gigs in Acting, VoiceOvers..etc
3 Voices: Your most recent video is Amber Part 1, which has a deep and meaningful message in it. Explain your meaning behind Amber Part 1 and what can we expect from the Part 2? And also would it even end at Part 2?
JReal Precise: My message was to reach the young women of today. 1 / 4 of women have been molested before the age of 18 so its a big issue! As well as bullying, and committing suicide so i put it all together to make a story that the majority of women can relate too. Part 2 is interesting as it will tell what Amber does as she is about to commit suicide and if she will indeed kill herself. But i can’t release any details to give it away but it won’t stop at part 2. It was written as a 3 part story but i may not stop there, but we will see!
3 Voices: Yeah we can’t wait to see what happens next and those are some very important topics you discuss. Since you are an activist for the youth and being from a city where there’s been a lot of violence over the past few years. What do you think that everyone can do to eliminate some of the violence that’s been going on?
JReal Precise: More people need to find themselves and see what’s their purpose in life. We also need better parenting, and more people waiting to have kids because we have a lot of young inexperienced parents. We need to start giving the youth an ultimatum when they do wrong, for ex. if they don’t get a job or go to school then they go to jail for a long period of time. In Chicago, it is getting out of hand so we need to start treating the ones doing crime tougher than anyone else as the capital of murder in the U.S. These young kids want to call our city “ChiRaq”, lets turn it into a real wartown and lock this city down with S.W.A.T team or troops! We have to become better people, and we can’t become better people unless everyone can start changing themselves.
3 Voices: What’s next for JReal Precise? Are there any exclusives that you can share with us?
JReal Precise: What’s next is me opening up a business helping the youth, and making more music of course. My music will be mature as i have grown but i still won’t be using profanity because it is not needed with my vocab! I will continue to lead youth in the right direction and be a great leader.
3 Voices: How can the people reach out to JReal Precise on social media sites such as (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and etc.)?
JReal Precise: They can hit me up everywhere @JRealPrecise for twitter, instagram, vine, ask.fm..etc. And my facebook is ItzJReal and goto my second website as my other one is under contruction, jrealprecise.net
