Semmuel Preason Jenkins, famously known as “Semme Automatic” is an American rapper from Pensacola, Florida, born on October 21, in 1998.
Semmuel was born in Tacoma, Washington and lives with Oculocutaneous Albinism Type 2 – Gene commonly called “OCA2” by-birth. However, as the saying goes “what doesn’t kill you; will make you stronger” – and albinism eventually became his strength in the future. As his parents were separated, he was raised by his single mother, and lived amidst two of his siblings but spent time with six other siblings from his father’s side.
Semmuel started writing and expressing himself through words. What initially started out as a series of “nursery rhymes”, quickly turned into more elaborate writings – basically about his feelings. The emotional challenges he had to face, mainly because of being different, being bullied throughout his life and poverty became the basis of his writing; which was an outlet of expression.
At 16, Semmuel found out that he had been gifted with an exceptional talent, and he decided to finally make use of it. He tried a few different studios but his gut kept on telling Semmuel that this wasn’t the path he was destined to follow. Semme Automatic was signed to Graphic Entertainment (Rodney Goldsmith and Derek Ogden). Moreover, Semmuel’s first album “Mood Swings” is expected to be released in the summer of 2017.
