Jhorano Plet (22) was raised in South East Amsterdam where he enjoyed his youth with local musicians. His mother taught him about 80s and 90s heroes, with R. Kelly as the most prominent influence.
Back then, his future seemed to be on the football pitch, because Jhorr is skilful with the ball, but the football world wasn’t his thing. The talented athlete quickly saw that his place was away from the Johan Cruijff ArenA stadium and fully focussed on music under the name Jhorrmountain. He took beats from YouTube, and performed the raps himself. “I just stole them, haha!”
Now his approach is more professional, with Blauwdruk Boothcamp as the elite education that will see him reach the top. “Here, I’m the only person who has only recently gotten behind the mic, while Frans is a legend in the rap game and the rest also have a wealth of experience. I really want to learn how to write the best lyrics and rap the best. Boothcamp has taught me to be honest with myself, and with my colleagues.” His next project: “A solo record. I want people to listen to the message that I wish to convey in my music. I feel at my best when I can perform, that really is my world.”
