Meet Juwan Rohan

Today we’d like to introduce you to Juwan Rohan.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Juwan. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I’ve been doing music for such a long time now. I first started writing at the age of five, I remember it so clearly for some odd reason.

I didn’t start taking it as a profession until after I graduated college. So end of 2016 is when I started to really put more attention to it and actually pursue music.

I am still trying to find that balance between the other avenues I enjoy and making music and it’s a struggle. I’m hoping, in the end, it’s a blessing.

Making music is my passion and I truly believe it’s what brings people together and that’s what I started to make music because I realize the effect it had on people and what it could do to people’s emotions. I used to listen to music when cleaning as a kid with my mother and I remember those times so clearly because they were the best I remember dancing around with the broom and spending quality time with my mother and being silly. I think it was the music that brought out those emotions and us where we would sing and scream lyrics at the top of our lungs. I’ve always wanted that feeling to last forever and that’s why I think music is eternal. And so every time I put the pen to paper, I keep that in mind that whatever I write will last even if I die and that’s what’s so great about the streaming services is because my music will now be around forever and last through many generations. That’s why I started a music and I hope to continue reaching the masses each day.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road has definitely had its bumpy turns. I’ve been in some really sad times where I sit and wonder if I’m truly built for this and other times I see a hint of success and think I’m the f**king man… excuse my language. I’d say the road has definitely been more bumpy right now because it’s hard to get people to listen to your music when everyone does music and not everyone is good so I’m trying to convince the people that you actually have talent before they hear you is the hard part.

However once they hear me it’s all good, I know Right then and there, I’ve made more fans. Social media has made it easy and hard at the same time because you can’t just blast people on Instagram with unwanted content Some people don’t follow me for my music, some follow me for my other entrepreneur avenues or my modeling or because they knew me since elementary and they don’t see me as a musician. However, I’m learning ways to kind of promote myself as an artist and entrepreneur in ways that kind of get people on board so every day is a learning process.

Please tell us more about your work. What do you do? What do you specialize in? What sets you apart from competition?
I am an entrepreneur trying to make a name for myself. I’m more than just a “rapper,” I’m an artist who loves to explore other creative ideas so I dabble in everything. I invest into my future and own my own rental car business on the side I’m looking into investing into property because that’s where the money is always going to be. I own my own clothing brand Til Infinity Clothing and so I have a lot of things I am starting to build and that will last for generations and years to come. I think what sets me apart from the competition is knowing that me myself is the biggest investment that I’ll ever make. If I Bet on me then I know if I fail, I know what I failed at and with my mindset, I never give up. If one road is blocked, I’ll take the long way. Some of the best success stories have the longest detours and I understand that. I think that’s what sets me apart from my peers. Everyone’s trying to rush to fame and money. I’m letting it come to me when it’s time.

Investing, art, photography, videography, acting, modeling. I do it all. I’m self-driven. I’d rather go shoot and direct my own music video than wait on another videographer’s time, that’s just how I am.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is dying without having regrets or wishing “I woulda/shoulda did this more” I’ll know what success looks like when my child is looking at me like “Dad, you made it”
