Jelly Roll has seen massive success over the last couple of years. However, he spent more than a decade clawing his way to the top. As a result, he knows a thing or two about failure. That, he recently said, is what he brings to the table as a mentor.

“I feel like I bring a lot of experience in the form of failure to the table,” he explained in a clip released last week. “I think that’s something they’re going to have to be familiar with because that’s what it takes to get good,” he added. “You got to do it wrong a thousand times.”
