Jason “Phenom” Pagan, CEO of So Phenomenal Entertainment,
was born in the birthplace of Hip-Hop; Bronx, New York. He was exposed to music
at an early age. Whereby, his passion and creativity grew throughout his years.
Jason was first introduced to music when he met a producer/lyricist through his
older sister, Christina. The producer taught him how to comprise beats, which
was the seed that contrived plenty of fruit in Jason’s career.
being initially taught the art of producing music, Jason continued to practice
for the following months. Eventually, he began to freestyle over the beats he
created. These free flowing styles evolved, and he began songwriting. At the
young age of 14, Jason emerged into the stage persona, “Phenom.”
Phenom, his career began to develop and emerge. Despite having to leave school,
he became very industrious and decided to embark upon his dreams. “I knew
leaving school was a big thing, but I, also, knew that I had greatness in me,
so instead of running the streets, I choose music.” Phenom built his own studio
within his apartment, where he lived with his mother, sister, brother, and
grandmother. “My grandmother was very
influential to my growth during my teen years.” She pushed him to work on his
art both day and night.
began producing for many local artists, and decided to branch out into rapping,
as well as songwriting. This is when his business mindset began to evolve. “I
was mostly inspired by Jay-Z, who managed a group of artists while being
involved in numerous other business activities,” Jason recalled. Consequently, Phenom put together his own
team of talented artists, and “Team So Phenomenal” was born.
“Team So Phenomenal,” were two artists, Oz and Jovanna. Oz is an artist from
the South Bronx, who initially began writing poetry and developed into a rapper
with a captive flow. Jovanna is a beautiful R&B singer/songwriter that
hails from the Bronx as well, whose vocals blends in with promise to carry her
and So Phenomenal to high achievements. Together, these artists have performed
throughout New York City for vendors and shows.
Furthermore, as an artist, Phenom
has achieved great heights. He has been featured in articles depicting his
story, being a young kid to a successful young minority entrepreneur.
Specifically, his humble beginning from leaving school, to building a home
based studio to releasing his first EP “Feeling Like a Champion.” Yet, he is
still standing in his beginning, and what a great start!
Phenom is primarily focused on fulfilling his dream of owning his own company,
So Phenomenal Entertainment. Within So
Phenomenal Entertainment, he has partnered with iCEEphotography, owned by
Crystal Santiago, an extremely talented photographer from the Bronx. At this
point, we don’t know if the sky is high enough to describe the potential for
Phenom. But, since it is a marking point, we can set it as a goal that will
soon be reached by Phenom and So Phenomenal Entertainment.
