It’s been a long climb for Jáneel who had started having fun writing rap lyrics back in his middle school days and rapping with friends who would listen to his crazy lyrical concoctions.

Jáneel’s most recent performance was a competition packed wall to wall with supporters who chanted his name leaving him feeling hands down, like a true winner. But it isn’t all about the money or who is the best for Jáneel, as he explains the bigger picture is that music could change the world. He tells us about his favorite artist, The Tokyo Police Club, in connection with his theory. He says he really likes the meaning behind their lyrics and how the messages portrayed in lyrical verses could be very powerful and have various affects on peoples emotions and thoughts.
