Hip Hop Artist Lil Jesse and Lineup to Perform at Big Sandy

Aaron Hoover

Prestonsburg, KY—Big Sandy Community & Technical College will host a concert of Hip Hop music at The Gearheart Auditorium, Prestonsburg Campus, on October 7 at 6:30 pm. Lil Jesse is set to perform with other cutting-edge artists to create a super energetic evening on campus. 

Lil Jesse, a native of Floyd County, has been coming up in the hip hop world for the past few years, writing his music and performing to crowds. He is not only a gifted songwriter, but he is also a powerful performer onstage. When asked about his artistry, Lil Jesse shared this:

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated with how a song comes together. I've understood how a piece should form early on from hearing many different music genres like The Beatles, The Eagles, Eminem, 50 Cent, Bob Seger, Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Green Day” and the Iist goes on. 

My main reason for writing music is because it truly heals me. It helps me get out what I can’t say in a normal conversation. Music is my only escape from reality, more than anything else possible. It’s like when I'm in the middle of recording a song, and I do something I've never done, or I come up with a new cool cadence, I get extremely fulfilled with a feeling I'll never be able to explain. I appreciate my fans & the support from all, and I'm nothing but thankful for the opportunities coming my way forever.

The concert will also showcase a diverse group of performers, including Frank Hunter, JaycBee, Justin Johnson, Brent Dye and DJ Timmy on the turntables. Tickets are $5 at the door (cash only), and proceeds will go to the Student Emergency Fund at Big Sandy.
