Jesty’s undergrad momentum granted him the opportunity to share the stage with some of the biggest names in music, like Diplo, E-40, PitBull, Bone Thugs n Harmony, The Game and many more. These epic performances and connections lead to a record deal offered by Warner Bros. and transition to life as a full-time record producer and songwriter in Los Angeles.
