Long Island, New York, rapper E-Reign began writing raps as a youngster after being influenced by Nas, 2Pac and LL Cool J; regardless of their career trajectories, they were all born in New York — the city that he consistently holds down.

E-Reign has been on the grind to solidify himself in the industry, and as of late, the public is starting to take notice. To date, he’s rocked over 50 shows across the east coast alongside acts like the drama king DJ Kay Slay and Jae Millz, earned radio spins, and a feature in The Source Magazine; currently, he’s preparing to tour overseas and promote his brand globally, as well as release his clothing line, L3.

His new record, “Need More,” is blazing up the web, and already has well over 450 You-Tube plays. Full of NYC swag, and bars that show off just how much potential the artist has. Give it a spin — and as always — if you’re feeling it, knock that share button.
