Jetpack Jones is a laid-back character from Lakewood, California who has been spitting positive, peaceful lyrics for a little over three years now. The 23-year-old artist released his latest project, Third Eye Initiative in late November and has earned plenty of satisfying responses from his fans and followers ever since. It was the first time ever Jetpack used a single producer for an entire project, but it turned out that he and Brock Berrigan collaborated for a relaxing piece of sound that delivers a mind-easing experience you can not miss out on. Currently, Jetpack Jones is on tour with Reem Riches and Mann presenting the Jet Rich Peace tour which has already reached three locations: Sacramento, San Diego, and Los Angeles. When the tour is all over, Jetpack Jones plans to get back to work while promoting both his music and views through the "Jetpack Movement".
