Meet Latenightjace of NightLight Records in East Atlanta

Today we’d like to introduce you to Latenightjace.

Latenightjace, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
It all started on Salem Road, east of Atlanta in a city called Conyers. One of my friends was older at the time, I was still in High School. His name is Danny we actually recorded one of my first ever songs together. He had had his own place & we would just be in there listening to beats. With the speakers as loud as possible. We would also be playing Grand Theft Auto 5. That’s when it first came out. I had it on Xbox. I was a huge gamer back then. But when we would find beats we would just start writing down our raps & songs. This went on for a few months. Eventually, we finally got in the studio & started recording. The first song really got threw to people was my track “Al Capone”. It just somehow got around my high school and people was playing it.

After that, I recorded a few more tracks and the EP was finished. It was called “The Fall of First Semester”. But after high school, I wanted to go to college to study fashion design. So I enrolled at the Art Institute of Atlanta. I met a lot of good friends while I was attending the school. I was always into music & fashion in high school. So it kind of just carried over to the next chapter of my life. One of friends I met was a producer named “Justyin The Composer” he helped me get out my second EP “The Darkest Phase”. He just had those 808s I was looking for. Without him my second EP might of sounded totally different.

But in college that’s when I also started teaching myself how to produce beats. I would get in the studio around 7am & not leave until it was time for me to go to class. Another person I met was my good friend Kirill. He had a camera so in between classes he would take pictures of me. His duo also produced one of my songs “Supernova”. We had a studio session together and I just knew it was the one. In college even though I was a fashion major I was kind of focused on music more. I mean I would go to fashion pop-ups around Atlanta but I was really leaning towards the music thing. I even interned for “OriginalFani” but I always wanted to do music. That brings me too present day. I’m in the process of writing my 3rd EP “3000”. I really can’t wait to finish the project.

Has it been a smooth road?
The road has been smooth. But there’s a bump in every road. I’ve had a label tell me that they wasn’t rocking with me. When I thought it was my time. But just like Kid Cudi says in Kids See Ghost, “Keep moving forward.”

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m a Rapper-Songwriter. I write all of my music, and I hope to write for other artist one day. I really want to write pop songs or r & b for them. I’m also really into photography & film. I’m a great photo editor. When I was in college & I was learning about Photoshop I already knew most of it. Along with photography I love film. I want to screen-write in future & put out short films. One thing that I’m proud about is the quality of music that comes out from me and the people around me. I feel like we’re the future. Something that set me apart from others has to be my drive. I really have a “never give up” mentality. Along with that my knowledge on fashion is ahead of most people.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Atlanta is a great place for someone to do music. So many great names came out of our city. It’s the place where trap music originated. I’m sure we have all seen how far trap has come. I would recommend anybody trying to do something in the entertainment industry to come here. There’s something for everyone, you just have to find your niche.
