Jada Imani is an East St. Louis-born, Bay Area-raised rapper and MC. With dreamy melodies with a gritty lyricism, the 22 year-old artist has charted bold directions as a voice in hip-hop and neo-soul. Her sound reflects a range of influences, from Hiatus Kaiyote to Stevie Wonder. As a community organizer in the Bay Area, she has collaborated on projects with Adidas, the Oakland Museum of California, and the ACLU, and has curated over 200 music showcases. Imani released her first solo EP in September 2020, and began a 6-month EP series in November, a tribute to Oakland’s First Friday tradition.
