Within the last year, we've become very familiar with St. Louis rapper Smino and his Zero Fatigue collective. Since the start, he's been adamant about bringing the rest of the Zero Fatigue crew—like Monte Booker and Jay2AintShit—with him wherever he goes, and more importantly, giving them their own time to shine. Today we're introduced to another St. Louis native, Bari.
Most people would expect to receive gifts on their birthday, but today on his own birthday Bari is the one doing the gift giving by sharing his new single "Jetpakk." As he continues to prepare for the release of his upcoming EP later on this year, Bari shares a preview of what to expect. This new single receives production from Monte Booker that sounds equally bouncy and intergalactic—which seems fitting for a song titled "Jetpakk."
However, "Jetpakk" isn't just about the jet-powered technology it's named after. Bari explains the power that really keeps him going is his son. "The birth of my son inspired me to strive and reach my highest potential," says Bari. "That's the Jetpakk, my son Carmelo."
Listen to "Jetpakk" below.
