Chef Brooky (aka Jelani Lawrence) is all about positivity. He is an aspiring Hip-Hop artist from the Bronx, New York City. Growing up he heard the sounds of legendary artists like Ms. Lauryn Hill, The Notorious B.I.G. and Fabolous. They inspired him to make the music he loves.
Once he got started, Brooky knew he had to stay true to himself and his own personal convictions. So much of the Hip-Hop music he heard was focused on violence and the desire for superficial things. As a man and an artist, Jelani’s interests ran much deeper than that. He realized that to remain honest, his music needed to reflect those values.
I just want to bring thoughtful and creative music that’s not all about money, drugs, and other material based things. I just want to do what I love and do it well.Chef Brooky
“Learn to Love” is Chef Brooky’s latest single. The track is a four minute dedication to the girl he loves. Over a chill old-school, 90’s style beat he rhymes with a laid back and steady flow. As a rapper Brooky has a cool confidence and subtle wit to his rhymes. The song’s mellow Jazz-Hop guitar, bass and drum samples match his mood perfectly as he rhymes smooth lines like, “Shorty’s my favorite flavor, i’m just learning to savor, everything that comes with her.”
