Jarred Brooks, a world champion in mixed martial arts and a rapper, lists his top musical influences.


Jarred Brooks enjoys spending time perfecting his other hobby while he is not busy knocking up the finest strawweight competitors in the world. The current holder of the ONE Strawweight World Championship is also a talented artist who raps under his own name and enjoys writing and performing his own material.

Even ONE supporters were teased by “The Monkey God” with some nasty bars that were used in various diss recordings for his previous opponents. Nevertheless, during his formative years in Warsaw, Indiana, Brooks was affected by some of the greatest rappers of all time, just like every other rapper who came before him.

In an interview with a promotion company in Singapore, the current holder of the 125-pound world title discussed his greatest musical influences and said the following:

Oh, we have no choice but to choose Missy Elliott. Missy Elliott was the shiznit in the music industry. Kid Rock is referred to as. I’ll have to check. You are absolutely right; even No Doubt had incredible members like Gwen Stefani. Busta Rhymes was a fantastic performer. A Tribe Called Quest wasn’t something I got into till I was a teenager and all that, but I’m a great, huge fan of tribe. Limp Bizkit was acquired by us. Fred Durst, Limp Bizkit was a very successful band. Eminem and Limp Bizkit were, in my opinion, the best two hip-hop artists during the time that I was listening to their music. Man, I was just listening to anything.

We could definitely see how he was affected by these great artists, not just in the method in which he raps, but also in the manner in which he fights. Jarred Brooks certainly had some fantastic picks in there, and we could definitely see how he was molded by them.

It is not a mystery why the 30-year-old has such a strong fondness for Eminem given that he currently resides in Detroit, which is located in the state of Michigan.

The ferocity of Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit’s music perfectly captures the unrelenting, nonstop, and in-your-face pressure that ‘The Monkey God’ exerts every time we see him in the Circle.

In a little under a week, Brooks will return for a fresh challenge. He will be challenging Mikey Musumeci for the ONE flyweight submission grappling world title. Brooks is attempting to achieve dominance in two different sports.

This champion versus champion all-grappling clash will be featured on ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs Grigorian, which will be shown on Prime Video on August 4 from Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. The entirety of the card will be shown live and for free for Prime Video users in North America who already have the service.
