We took a trip to Legendary Muzik Studio and we spoke to the Man behind the name and the Music, JMP. We found him taking a breather and we did what we do best. Got him to talk.
Here are the excerpts from the interview he did with our reporter Miss Mona.
What does JMP mean and Who is He ?
Jeepers Mad Producer, It came from high school, after watching the film Jeepers Creepers he went in the studio and made a BANGING beat for guys who were messing it up, and they just started calling him Jeepers , later on Inka Man and Templeman added the MAD PRODUCER bit and it stuck.
JMP is Frankenstein reincarnated; he creates artistic monsters through experiments.
