Initially, it is called ‘DEF SOUL’. Jay B is a big fan of ‘Musiq Soulchild.‘ He got the word Def while watching their music video for ‘Just Friends‘ and he saw the word Def Jam on the last scene. Out of his curiosity, he looked up the meaning and found out that it meant ‘cool music‘. Def Soul is also the name that he used when he is still b-boying. It also became his pen name for music distribution and later on, it was shortened to Def.
Prior to his official debut as Def, some of his compositions were on on his SoundCloud account. He was able to release 5 mixtapes there, wherein fans can listen freely to his tracks.
On his previous interview with Mustang 88 FM, he’s asked on what are the difference between Jay B and Def. In the music point of view, there is a bit difference on him making songs. He said that with Jay B, there is a little ambition like wishing people will love his songs. But with Def, there is a freedom on doing whatever music that he want to make.
Whether it’s Jay B, Def, or Lim Jaebeom, he never fails to make his fans proud. Congratulations on your new achievements and we are looking forward on your future projects!
