Whodat.com interviewed Jaheim and asked the singer about what made him decide to sing instead of rap. “When you are told shut up from time to time.. that just pushes you to work harder and not to be shut up, because you know when somebody says shut up it just irks you,” he said. “And that’s what I grew up hearing all the time, ‘Jah sing this song’ then the next minute ‘shut up.’ It just made me work harder.” He added, “I used to rap when I was younger. But I said man everybody’s doing that so I’m gonna stick with this singing right here – stay over there with the ladies.” Check out the entire interview here.
