JRich "If you don't know where you're from; you won't know where you're going"

JRich
Within a few months of campaigning in Jamaican, Canadian rapper JRich topped major video countdown charts, received continuous radio airplay and made the playlist of several street cd mixes with his 'Love and Joy' collaboration featuring international reggae artiste Warrior King. So encouraging were the results from the promotion the young rap artiste took the decision to release other tracks he recorded in Jamaica, his latest? a new single entitled, "One Time."



Of Jamaican parents and true to his craft, JRich's body of work presented to local jocks were impressive, some local djs are totally into his powerful messages and smooth flow. On releasing 'One Time,' local radios 'turn out' the track, pumping it hard and quickly increased daily spins to an all time high.  An optimistic and hard working individual, who is cognisant of the fact that his journey will never be easy, said in a recent post on instagram, "Had a studio session till 4am.  Had to look at this every once in a while (referring to a photo of Maestro Fresh Wes) as a reminder that it ain't easy to be a #Toronto Artist and be accepted internationally but it can be done. He went on to thank "all those who paved the way before.." and hashtag among others the following statement 'all this time in the studio means only one thing.'

A new video has been released in Jamaica for a collaboration entitled, "Yes I Can" which he recorded with yet another Jamaican artiste called Solution.  This video has already gained momentum on local channels and from the feedback will be likely another chart topper for the Canadian.  Check out JRich's Music and interviews as well as follow the 22 year old rapper on twitter @jrichto
