North Carolina hip-hop duo Jae Mansa appears to be making all the right moves to solidify their spot. Cousins Daron “Jae” Johnson and Brandon “B” Boone formed Jae Mansa in 2016. Johnson came up with their name, combining his middle name “Jae” (short for Jaelon) and “Mansa,” after emperor Mansa Musa, leader of the Mali Empire during the 14th century and one of the wealthiest man to ever live.
The North Carolina natives signed an equity distribution deal with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation in November 2018. The entertainment company’s senior vice president, Lenny Santiago, was on hand when they inked the deal at Jue Lan Kitchen in New York City. Other big names in entertainment at the signing included Power 105.1’s DJ Self, actress Bre-Z, “This Is 50’s” Jack Thriller, HOT 97’s Miabelle, and “Love & Hip Hop New York” reality star Tahiry Jose.
Jae Mansa’s music is personal and driven by his own life story. No one can tell the story better than they can and this feeds their passion and hunger to feed the masses and make a mark in the culture with their musical skills.
Jae Mansa recently released their highly anticipated new project Yung Kings. Yung Kings debuted 41 on the Billboard charts and 10 on iTunes Top 10. These Yung Kings are on the rise and establishing their brand so it won’t be long before they becomes a household name.
