Before producing hit singles for artists like the Far East Movement and Bruno Mars, Jerm Beats had a different passion: eating. Unfortunately, his love for food led him to become obese, causing a concerned friend to reach out to him out about his weight.
That’s when Jerm, whose real name is Jeremy Reeves, knew he had to change. So he set off on an inspiring life-changing journey, all while working as a member of The Stereotypes production trio.
The Stereotypes are best known for their collaborations with the Far East Movement. The Grammy-winning crew has also worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Usher, Ne-Yo, and Mary J. Blige. In 2016, they produced Bruno Mars’ hit singles “24K Magic” and “That’s What I Like.”
Reeves has now shared his incredible story on an episode of Barbell Brigade’s Dominate Humbly series. The series highlights the stories of influential people in weightlifting.
The Sacramento native discusses his struggles with eating, the moment he decided to change, and how he got into bodybuilding. He also gives a tour of his studio.
