We had the good fortune of connecting with Javoris Pettway and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Javoris, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The thought process was purely out of my mindset. I couldn’t imagine myself working for someone else my whole life so I had to find a way to go into business for myself.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is Emo music. I use to be a trap artist but I evolved to the Emo genre to fit me better as a person. The thing that set me apart from other Emo artist is the fact I’m pushing my genre harder than any other artist out right now. My hometown (Mobile Alabama) is popular for trap music with guys such as NoCap,Rylo, Honeykomb Brazy. I am the first Emo artist to come out of the city so I’m leading the charge for this genre. I’ve started throwing my own concerts (along with my business partner Jamie Todd) entitled Emo Nights and we are just leading the charge for the genre of music we love.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would take them to eat at some of Mobiles Best restaurants. SoCu, Wintzells, Dauphins, then make our way to the gulf shores area for the Hangout and the shrimp basket. We have the best seafood restaurants in the country! And then we would go shopping, Mobile has a amazing up and coming fashion scene. We would shop at Secret Scientist, Illegal, Free loader, and True Freshman. And then of course we would end with our night life. Great clubs like Bank and Lure and end the trip with me throwing a Emo Night at a local Venue.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my shoutout to one of my mentors Mr. Cali Bama. He gave me my first shot at being a artist and pushed me to the level I’m at now. I also want to shoutout Allen and Cassie Wilson, they are my current managers. They been there since day 1 and has supported everything I’ve done.
