THE WARM UP: ZEP JASPER
This volume of “The Warm Up” comes to you from Zep Jasper, shooting guard of Auburn University. Zep Jasper started playing basketball at the age of 5 and realized he could really play with the best by 6th grade. Now having finished out a season with the Charleston Cougars as the leading scorer and making his transition to Auburn University, he is living out his dreams.
Coming from Augusta, Georgia he has his city behind him, showing support all the way from nothing to something. When it comes time for a game Jasper turns to music to get in the zone, motivational rap music is the key to his success. Some of his favorite artists are Moneybagg Yo, Youngboy NBA, and above all Blac Youngsta. The most recent track he’s had on repeat is 42 Dugg and Blac Youngstas's single, “Threat”. A song that he can always turn to for motivation is Blac Youngstas's “Deserve That Shit”, featured on the playlist. Being from Augusta he’s been surrounded by a handful of upcoming artists in the rap game as well. Artists YWM Flyaa, Itchy Corleone, Rocklife Zho, and Tvrpmoney VDough are the ones to watch.
Jasper wants the young athletes and anyone who’s ever been told they can’t do it, that they can. No matter what you want if you put your mind to it and stay true to yourself you’ll get there. Listen to his playlist to get in the zone and put your mind towards your success.
