There are plenty of artists in Chicago but not many put in the same amount thought or time as Jofred. Part of the PVTSTCK crew, Jofred has been dialing in his craft for years and is also part of the Grammy nominated group Chinza Fly where he first staked his claim as the world’s best Asian rapper.

We got the chance to ask him a few questions and he really gave some great answers that touch on Asian culture, his vision for his music and some of his biggest influences.
