JPEGMAFIA, or Peggy, for short, has been slowly building up one the strongest fan bases in the music industry, and he’s doing it organically. His most recent endeavor is a short film series titled How To Build A Relationship. Part 1 this series was only 15-minutes long, but was jampacked with content. Most notable was the conversation with the fan-favorite – who spends most the scene reminiscing how “cold” his bars . The two them discussed leaving a legacy and how being authentically themselves has helped them do so. The conversation happens over a few glasses wine, so it is funny throughout.
The latest installment How To Build a Relationship opens up with Peggy giving an autotune-heavy rendition Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” to hundreds fans at what appears to be a sold-out show. Throughout the 25-minute episode, Peggy shares insight into his life and childhood. We see clips from several live shows intertwined with clips him describing childhood photos. “I don’t know who dressed me in this shit, but… Why?“, he asks after sharing one the photos.
The episode ends similarly to the last, but instead talking with Danny Brown, Peggy invites another one his musical inspirations, , a Swedish singer-songwriter. Again, the conversation is light and casual but dense in nature. The stand out might be telling the Swedish artist that she’s singing “out pocket”, which helped her realize the importance vocal rhythms to a listener.
