Cooli Highh

People cope with trauma in various ways. Some people have turned to drugs or alcohol, some withdraw and isolate themselves, and some find creative outlets to help them deal with their pain. For hip-hop artist Cooli Highh, making music is one of the ways he has coped with his traumatic experiences.

The African-American singer, songwriter, and content producer Samuel Thomas Jones Jr., also known as Cooli Highh, experienced the lowest of lows. At a young age of three, he was kidnapped, burned alive, and left for dead. This event could have easily broken him, but instead, he used it as a source of strength. He channeled his pain into his music, using it as a way to express himself and connect with others. Indeed, Cooli Highh’s life has been marked by tragedy and trauma, but he still managed to accomplish great things. His new project, Trap Tape 2: Still Boomin!, is a testament to his strength and resilience. This album is full of raw emotion and tells the story of what Cooli Highh has been through. It is a powerful work of art that will move and inspire anyone who hears it.

“They will learn more about my ups and downs and mistakes and lessons so they can reflect and learn what to do or not do in certain situations! That’s Why I Made #TheHighhLife Podcast, and I stream on Twitch and YouTube to connect with those who support me,” Highh shared.

Cooli Highh is a unique talent in the music industry, combining the best features of rap, hip-hop, R&B, and trap music to create fun and life-changing songs. Cooli Highh’s passion for music and desire to uplift others through his art is evident in everything he does. He said, “I built my own brand to uplift people who have a dream and want to chase it. I want to show them even if it’s hard and starts off slow, if you really want it, you can get it.”

Cooli Highh debuted in the music industry with the release of Trap Tape, which became a hit at the time. Since then, he has gained recognition for his unique music style and collaborated with many well-known musicians. In 2020, he released the highly successful song “Piranha,” which would receive rave reviews for its well-produced sound and quality musicianship. Cooli Highh’s debut album, 48Hrs, includes popular songs such as “Medicine,” “Piranha,” “Locomotive,” “Cold Soul,” and “Flowers.” Thanks to his work, he has received coverage from media outlets, including LA Wire, HipHop Weekly, The Hype Magazine, and Medium. In addition to his music, Cooli Highh also started AcMgFashion, a website that offers a range of clothing and accessory options.

As the leaves begin to change color and the air gets crisp, Cooli Highh’s highly-anticipated album, Trap Tape 2: Still Boomin!, is set to be released this fall. The album will include collaborations with some of the most well-known names in the music industry, such as Rockie Fresh, Mark Battles, Maino, and Big K.R.I.T. 

It is truly amazing what some people can accomplish despite having faced great trauma in their lives. Cooli Highh is an inspiration to many individuals from all walks of life, and his new project is sure to be a success.
