Jhene Aiko Introduces Rap Alter Ego on New EP

Jhene Aiko is showing her many sides on her upcoming EP, ‘Sail Out.’

The singer will rap on the forthcoming effort as her alter ego J. Hennessy. “I literally feel throughout the day I go through 12 different personalities in my head,” she tells Rap Up TV.

The Def Jam signee went on to explain the difference between her soulful singing side and her rap persona. “She’s an aspiring rapper,” Aiko shares. “She still sings, but she’s more aggressive. She likes to really talk a lot of s— and talk about things that a lot of R&B singers don’t talk about.”

The EP also includes features from Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean and Kendrick Lamar.

“’Sail Out’ has a lot of the hip-hop-rap influence on it, even with the beats,” Jhene explains. “It’s something you wanna put in your car; it’s perfect for the summer time.”

‘Sail Out’ will arrive before her debut LP, ‘Souled Out.’
