Bio: With music that makes you feel slippery and wet, JPEGMAFIA aka Peggy aka Barrington Hendricks isn't here to make you feel comfortable. Or maybe he is with all the funny references he applies to his bars. Making music alongside texture artists like Flume, Vince Staples, and Kenny Beats - a lot of what JPEG draws from is his past life in the military. Makes a lot of sense when you take a seat and listen to the jittery metallic noise he applies to his work. It is like his sound is encapsulating these sophisticated lyrics that dissect the touchy subjects of America. It is simply beautiful. The most recent single "Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot" lays out the genius that is JPEGMAFIA. It is the kind of sound you can party to and sit still to. Here there is no in between and we like it that way.
