Outstanding Talent. A Rapper “Kiano Jones” Represents Japanese Teenager Scenes.

Hello, this is Sleepwell!!
I would like to introduce another young Japanese rapper.

“Kiano Jones” is a 15 year-old Japanese rapper born in New York Brooklyn and raised in Kobe.


He was only 14 years old when he released this. I started making beats at the same age but this is at another level.

Sung in Japanese in the vein of Drake’s “Emotional singing style”.

You can listen to his latest rap. This one showcases another style of his.

As I check his updates on daily basis, I realized he perfectly acts as a rapper “Kiano Jones”. Maybe it’s another talent of his how he self-produce himself. He plays his own role of “Kiano Jones” the rapper. Even if there’re some grown-ups behind it, from his comments and the way he actsyou can see his serious pursue of coolness that’s beyond the publicity.
