Watch 'Right Here Is Home', The FADER's short documentary on JPEGMAFIA

Thu Nov 1st

The FADER presents ‘Right Here Is Home’, a new documentary about rapper and producer JPEGMAFIA. The documentary displays JPEGMAFIA visiting the Bell Foundry in Baltimore, which was one of the first places where he connected with a creative community.

He also explains how the city’s collective fight against police brutality helped foster his early forays into music. In ‘Right Here Is Home’, we also see him warming up backstage before a show, doing voice exercises, and then releasing his energy in a destructive live performance at Baltimore’s Metro Gallery. Watch the documentary below.

“I’ve moved around so much in my life, but I never had a place that I could just comfortably call ‘hey, this is where I’m from’. Baltimore is the first place where I came and everything lined up, where I was able to get focus.” - JPEGMAFIA
