”JPEGMAFIA was funny, entertaining, emotionally potent and unexceptionally technically strong in Amager Bio. A live rapper – and entertainer in general – like him is hard to find.” 

That’s how Danish music media Soundvenue described JPEGMAFIA’s latest show in Denmark, when he visited Amager Bio in Copenhagen in September 2022. 

The L.A.-based rapper and producer has four albums under his belt, and they’re packed with experimental productions and limitless underground rap with lyrics circling around political and societal topics – including important aspects of Black culture and art and Western appropriation of this. 

Barrington Hendricks (or you can call him Peggy!) broke through in 2018 with his record Veteran. The title referred to his time with the US Air Force, and media like NME, Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine, Pitchfork, and Noisey all named it one of the best records of the year. In fact, Pitchfork praised it as one of the best records of the 2010s!

JPEGMAFIA has collaborated with the likes of Gorillaz, Brockhampton, Danny Brown, and Denzel Curry and is famous for his intense live shows. 

We expect the temperature to rise once JPEGMAFIA grabs the mic at NorthSide 2023!

JPEGMAFIA will play Friday 2 June at NorthSide 2023.
