Jordan Timothy Jenks (born September 19, 1993), known professionally as Pi'erre Bourne, is an American record producer, rapper, songwriter, and audio engineer.[1] He is known for producing the singles "Magnolia" by Playboi Carti, and "Gummo" by 6ix9ine, which peaked at number 12 on the US Billboard Hot 100.[2][3][4] His work can be identified on a song by his producer tag, "Yo Pierre, you wanna come out here?" which is a line sampled from an episode of The Jamie Foxx Show[5], which after the release of American rapper Playboi Carti's breakout track "Magnolia" from his eponymous debut commercial mixtape Playboi Carti (2017) became a viral phenomenon and an internet meme leading the tag to become widely known and Bourne to break out as a producer.

Early life[edit]

Jenks was born into a military family in Columbia, South Carolina.[6] Growing up, he would spend his summers with his grandmother in Queens, New York, which lead to his interest in East Coast hip hop artists such as Dipset and G-Unit.[6] His cousin is Papoose.[7] Inspired by his uncle Dwight who was a rapper and graphic artist, Jenks first began making beats when he was in elementary school, using FL Studio on his uncle's computer.[3]

Career[edit]

Jenks went to school for graphic design for a year before dropping out. At 18, his uncle encouraged him to pursue his career in music and Jenks moved to Atlanta to study sound engineering at the SAE Institute.[3] While in school, he met and began collaborating with DJ Burn One, who encouraged him to create his own instrumentals and not rely on samples. After graduating school, the studio where the two worked hired him as a full-time engineer. In 2015, Jenks began working for Epic Records as a sound engineer, leaving a year later to focus on his own career.

Jenks met Playboi Carti in February 2017, collaborating on the track "Woke Up Like This" and producing most tracks on his debut project.[4] Their song "Magnolia" peaked at 29 on the US Billboard Hot 100. This kickstarted Jenks' producing career, producing songs for 21 Savage, Trippie Redd, Rich the Kid, Lil Yachty, Kanye West, Nav, Metro Boomin and Lil Uzi Vert. Jenks has also released a series of mixtapes called The Life of Pi'erre and has his own imprint, SossHouse, at Interscope Records.[7] He produced Travis Scott's new single 'Watch' which features Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert. He also produced Playboi Carti's album "Die Lit".

Education[edit]

Jenks is a sound engineer by formal training. He is a graduate of the SAE Institute.[8]

Artistry[edit]

Jenks is influenced by Wiz Khalifa, Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane, J Dilla, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Kanye West.[6] Like Kanye, Jenks wants to continue to work as a producer, while pursuing his own rap career.[3]
