Jelani Aryeh and Raisedbytheinternet

Jelani Aryeh: ‘Lavender Love’ via Instagram @jelaniiaryeh

I’ve had my eyes on Jelani and his team for some time now. It all started with a simple scroll through Instagram, on the explore page. The post that caught my eye was that of a young man in a pink, custom ‘American Flowerboy’ hoodie. The caption, “i talked to tyler today at comic-con. he called me a n*gga. best day ever.” After digging deeper through the depths of Instagram, Soundcloud, and Twitter I found out this kid had something special in store for himself.

Jelani Aryeh, a 17-year-old form the suburbs of San Diego isn’t afraid to express his inspirations, in fact he shares them quite boldly. With a blissfully alt-hip hop pathway that he’s paved for himself, he is a young creative mind birthed from the art of those such as Frank Ocean, Tyler, The Creator, and Kevin Abstract.

Jelani, is also the founder of his own music collective, ‘raisedbytheinternet‘. With a growing following on social media and thousands of plays stacking up on platforms such as, Apple Music, Spotify, and Soundcloud. Jelani is on the verge of superstardom and I suggest you get familiar with his work soon.
