Barrington Hendrick, known artistically as JPEGMAFIA, is an American rapper and producer from Baltimore, Maryland. Hendrick’s work is highly unusual and experimental in nature, blending and blurring genre, extensive sampling and digital distortion into a critically-acclaimed body of work that ranges from a cover of “Call Me Maybe” to the “Darkskin Manson” tape which was inspired by the Freddie Gray protests in his hometown.
Hendricks enlisted in the United States Air Force at the of 18 following high school and one term in the US Air Force, during which he was deployed to Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan, North Africa and Japan. It was in the military that Hendrick’s music career began in earnest - he regularly released his beats, songs and music videos under a pseudonym. His second studio album “Veteran”, released in 2018, propelled Peggy (as he is affectionately known by fans as) to an almost-cult online following and drew rave reviews from critics. His subsequent and latest album, “All My Heroes Are Cornballs”, released in 2019, was a huge success earning further artistic praise, including a 5-star review from the NME among others.
