Los Angeles based emo rap artist Jack Bruno partners with Chicago rapper Famous Dex for a feel good joint called “Misfits.” Produced by Suits, the melodic and bouncy track embraces being high on life especially when you’re an outcast. The Nicholas Siegel directed visual also features a brief cameo from Rich Forever rapper Rich The Kid. Working with in-demand producers Hit-Boy, DJ Camper and Don Canon, Jack Bruno’s Manifesting Of A Pop Star (Part 1) will be available on June 8th on all DSPs.
“Dex is family… man, we come from totally different worlds but we have that same love for music & culture. That’s why celebrate life on a real high. It’s a crazy feeling to make music that really means something. We both just do what we do and it’s like, fuck it, if we don’t fit in. It’s real to me and that’s what counts,” explains Jack.
Previously, HYPEBEAST premiered Jack Bruno’s “2 Goth Kids” produced by Dylan Brady and praised his “memorable lyrics and melodies.” “2 Goth Kids” was featured on Spotify’s Clout Culture Playlist and Vevo’s “Incoming Hip-Hop” Playlist.

Before he began his solo project, Los Angeles-based Jack Bruno was put through a wringer of endless touring in previous bands, battling creative roadblocks, and picking up a few vices along the way. Now he wants to reflect unsparingly on his mistakes by writing songs of survival. Channeling his love of Gorillaz and British grime artists and engaging with the creative community he’s found in LA, Jack rediscovered the fun behind creating for himself.
“It’s a big step of just owning it,” says Bruno. His newfound self- awareness and clarity is evident on the first songs he’s recorded under his own name, alongside producers Jeremiah & Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Charli XCX) and Dylan Brady.
Jack’s single “2 Goth Kids” features Famous Dex and cleverly blends the hip-hop and emo worlds. Premiered by Hypebeast, it was placed on Spotify’s Clout Culture playlist and featured on Apple’s Alternative Releases.
His song “MY Way,” honors west coast hip-hop production. With its clattering, grimy beat and epic choruses, the song was immediately embraced by local Alternative Rock radio. Bruno is releasing two albums in 2018 called Manifesting A Pop Star Part 1 & 2 with production by Hit-Boy, DJ Camper, Don Cannon and guest spots from Famous Dex, Playboi Carti and more.
