Jiggy riKO is a hip-hop and rap artist from Somerset, New Jersey. Despite a rough childhood, Jiggy prides himself on his resilience to hardship.
Jiggy is now a junior at Duke University, studying Neuroscience, and of course, pursuing his rapping career. Jiggy has been creating music and pursuing a passion for dance, since he was 8 years old. Although he began writing raps in elementary school, Jiggy only really honed his writing abilities in his early teens – when he began writing and performing slam poetry. Jiggy has a wide range of inspirations based on aesthetics, fashion, music, and “jiggy-ness”. These artists include Masego, Miguel, Travis Scott, and Chance the Rapper. Jiggy is confident that he draws on the notable individuality and versatility of each of these artists, and many more. Jiggy, a signed artist with Duke’s Small Town Records, recently released his debut single “Skyline”, which is available NOW on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major media streaming platforms. Jiggy is presently writing and co-producing several new singles in preparation for an EP he expects to release this Spring.
