The music industry today is constantly changing through time. From new sounds and styles to new artists and bands, listeners everywhere are absorbing all different sorts of music. Talent is all around us. Some artists make it. Some don’t. So who do we think is the next artist that’s on the rise? One particular Asian artist we have been following was born in Korea and currently lives in Canada. You may know him by the name of J.Reyez.
Read his biography to learn a little bit more about the artist himself:
The J stands for the initial of his first name (Justin) and the Reyez (The word Rise spelled Eyez with an R) stands for his fast elevation since stepping in to the music game. Born in East yet raised in the West, this young lyricist displays a disciplined work ethic rarely seen at his age with a quite confidence of an industry veteran.
J.Reyez has emerged as one of Canada’s most multi dimensional Hip Hop prospects versed in the new school DIY “Do It Yourself” era of writing, producing, recording, mixing/engineering, graphic design and directing/editing his own music videos. His music has been aired on numerous radio stations worldwide. His music videos have been profiled many times on Hip Hop’s biggest online video sharing site, WorldStarHipHop.com as well as his music video “Little Miss Innocent” currently airing on Canadian Television Channel, MuchMusic, on medium rotation.
Sought after as the fresh vision for street artists, some industry insiders say he is taking the online indie game to another level through his Youtube and online social network marketing. This balance of underground online presence and main stream media support demonstrates this young talent is making moves well beyond the Canadian borders. His smooth transition from verse to verse in a rhyme is continued from shot to shot in the videos he produces. This ‘double edged sword’ is cutting through the fat of Maple Leaf rap leaving listeners to a leaner cut of prime rhymes.
So needless to say his GRIND is now paying off as his legion of fans are quickly growing globally online. As they closely watch his every move, he has consistently stepped his game up song after song and show after show, video after video. J.Reyez has more than 50 shows under his belt as well as touring in different cities in Canada, US and even out in Australia and captured the underground hip hop circles through his relentless hustle. To top it off he is an officially sponsored artist for the clothing line Tragic Glory whose message is to always turn negative situations into positive ones through their involvement with World Vision sponsorship as well as donating to the Canadian Cancer Society. J.Reyez is exactly what is needed for Canadian Hip Hop, while others wait, he is already doing it for himself.
