Jidenna TicketsBorn Jidenna Theodore Mobisson in Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., Jidenna is a Grammy Award-nominated American singer-songwriter, rapper and music producer. He started rapping in the early 2000's, putting together his first rap group, Black Spadez, while he was still in high school. Jidenna's big break came in 2015, when his breakout single Classic Man featuring GianArthur debuted at No. 49 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart. Jidenna is signed to Janelle Monae's Wondaland Records and has collaborated with the artist on numerous occasions, most notably their Soul Train Award-winning single, "Yoga". The hip-hop artist sings, dances and raps and is quickly making a name for himself as a rising star performer in concerts around the world.
Hail to the ChiefJidenna's sole studio album to date has been 2017's The Chief. This title came from Jidenna's dual nationality status. His father was a Nigerian academic who was highly respected in their community, and Jidenna split time between the United States and Nigeria growing up. The artist was influenced by Nigerian Highlife and Afrobeats artists, as well as traditional American Hip-hop artists like Big Daddy Kane. Jidenna's personal style is as genre defying as his music, a mix of turn-of the century dandy and Afropolitan street style. Jidenna's aesthetic is as intentional as his lyrics. The artist studied fashion psychology and sound engineering at Stanford University while pursuing a degree in ritualistic arts. Jidenna adapted his signature style after the death of his father, saying he did not want his best dressed day to be in a casket. The Chief is a semi-biographical album that wrestles with themes of blackness, elitism, aesthetic and legacy. In addition to writing and producing songs, Jidenna also dances and has even done some acting. The musician had a small role in the hit HBO series Insecure.
