Nicknamed “Spencer For Hire” as a kid, Spencer Jackson wields the mic intentionally to harness the motivational power of hip-hop culture. Growing in both his faith and his art, from childhood, Spence has always created content with conviction and character, keeping it real and keeping it fresh.
Following a sudden Internet viral campaign and his first self-titled release, Spence paused his rap career to focus on family, schooling, and community outreach – all of which he alludes to transparently in his music. Returning from the hiatus, Spence dropped his new EP, Make Noise, in April 2017.
As of late, the message in hip-hop has been muzzled by mumbles — prime real estate for the distinctive, aural capture of clarity and tenacity that is signature to Spence’s delivery. Hip-hop purists long for lyrics, while the millennial hip-hoppers drowned in sound, and as sure as he hails from the mid-Atlantic, Spence believes there is literally a harmonious medium, and more than willing to fill the gap. Spence is “4hire” to bridge the old school to the new school, the streets to the steeple, and the nobility to the “noise”.
