Rapper/songwriter JRS3 has received critical acclaim from the Hip Hop/R&B world; many of his songs have gained national attention, earning prestigious placements on National Airplay charts. His track “We Can Party” became one of his most requested songs, with internet radio clocking over 5000 plays and eight weeks of consecutive charting.

He has now joined the Star 1 Records family, and looks forward to once again, dominating the airplay charts with his single “Red White Blue”, and his upcoming single/video, “Coffee.” JRS3 recently took some time to chat with AAHIPHOP and answer our world famous Q&A. Check out his answers below and get to know a little more about him.


How did you get involved in music?

My first involvement in music was in High School A Capella Choir for four years, which is where I learned to read and write music. Since then, I have always written poetry as a hobby. In 2012, I became more serious about my music teaching myself how to use Garage Band and Pro Tools on my Mac Pro book laptop, writing my lyrics; long story short, I taught myself about every aspect of the music business — learning from my mistakes along the way. Last year I became an MTV Artist, and now I am beginning to see the progress of my hard work.

Who were some of your influences?

I am inspired by everyday people, my personal experiences in life and — of course — anyone whom can relate to my journey, and whom are successful.

Tell me about the music you’re currently recording.

I have just released a hot new R&B track “You And Me,” which is slowly gaining attention across the country; but, now I am woking on an electrifying Rock/ R&B track called “Coffee.” The video and single will be released July 1.

How would you describe your sound?

Positive music the triggers all emotions and genres.
What are your goals in the industry?

I have a few songs that are commercially ready for major brands like “You Can’t Fill My Shoes,” “Red White Blue,” and “Coffee” — endorsement deals would be ideal for these songs.

What do you want people to take away from you as an artist?

JRS3 is an exceptional Indie artist that supports other Indie artists that are given the chance to prove their worth on the national stage.

Do you want to remain independent or sign to a major label?

Currently, I am an Independent, but I am open to a major label deal where we both profit; but, I am I ready to go from hobby to business!

What should we be looking out for from you?

Coffee, the new single and video, will be released on July 1st — and XM Radio talk shows are coming soon.

Soo Casa Returns With “Cldhnky”

Toronto rapper Soo Casa — who has appeared on AAHH in the past — is back with a hot new single in advance of his first headlining show next month (November). “I plan to release more tracks on a consistent basis leading up to that,” he tells AAHH.

“Cldhnky,” the first song mixed and mastered by Soo Casa (a la J.Cole/Russ) is a braggadocios planting of a flag in the game. A suitable follow-up to “nolovesongs” which he dropped two months ago, he proclaims himself as the “coldest honky in the game right now,” peppering the bassy Ninety8 produced instrumental with a barrage of punchlines. It’s a little more bar for bar Hip Hop, which is sure to help build his profile as a spitter.

Soo has been building a cult-like following on his social media profiles as of late and is hoping that organic grind will translate into further exposure as he begins to drop songs at a more feverish pace throughout the 4th quarter on 2017.

Toronto’s Own Soo Casa Is Coming Up

Toronto is a melting pot of talented new voices that run the gambit in terms of vibes and flows. Rapper Soo Casa is one such new act looking to pop off in the city, which currently has an aggressive spotlight pointed squarely at it. Only a year into his career, he’s managed to amass a solid following and some great looks.

Having performed across North America with artists such as the ever eclectic Jody Highroller, better known as RiFF RaFF, buzz-worthy Jarren Benton, and hometown hero Peter Jackson — whose worked with acts like D-Block and Naughty By Nature — he’s begun to a snowball effect, clocking thousands of spins.

A dope — albeit not that unique — blend of the melodic wave of cloud-rap mashed with lyricism, he comes off as a strong contender for the next class of artists hailing from the capital of Ontario.

Check out some of his tracks, below. If you’re feeling the kid, hit up his Soundcloud and Instagram.

Dade County, Florida, has quite a range of Hip Hop vibes seeping through its veins; Grasshead, repping Homestead, is bringing a positive alternative to the darker imagery we’ve become accustomed to in the past year or so. “My music is always made so the listener can use the track as a foundation for finding their way,” he tells fans on his SoundCloud comment stream.

Grasshead brings together many different sounds — all while staying close to his hip-hop roots. He was recently featured in the film “Paying Mr. McGetty,” playing himself. As well, his new single “Bada Bing Bam Bong” was used in the new Sony Crackle show “Start Up.” He is currently working on brand new music for season 2 of “Start Up,” among many other projects.

Check out his song “Magical Door” to get a taste of what Grasshead Music offers. “This track is all about finding a way to vent and get away from the stresses of your life,” he explained to a fan on SoundCloud. “Whether it’s through spiritual healing, mind elevation, or as simple as finding healing through your music.”

Connecticut Rapper Swift Beefs With Lil Pump While Working On His Debut

18-year-old Swift has an unassuming look about him; until you notice the saucy Gucci belt. The half Puerto Rican Connecticut rapper is a trap artist that adamantly claims to live the life he portrays on record. “My real life inspires my music,” he tells AAHH. True, the young rapper is a lot less about the more sinister/violent trap existence, which he may very well have ties to, and more so about the money that comes with it.

His age and his approachable appearance may have a lot to do with his recent popularity. “Whenever I go out people I don’t even know recognize me and come up to talk to me or start playing my music,” he says, “and this is only the beginning.”

With a small catalog, a mere 11 songs in length, he’s managed to get the ball rolling with the help of some über wavy production and butter flows. His most popular track, “Expensive Taste,” is a bassy track perfect for windows down on a summer evening as you roll past a sleepy downtown metropolitan en route to your Shorty’s house. “I’m just a young man feeling like an OG,” he laments on the song’s second verse.

He also has a record going at major label viral star Lil’ Pump — and it sounds mad personal, with an underlining see you when I see you tone. He takes particular aim at the fact that he doesn’t live the life he “raps” about; further exposing himself to potential scrutiny. What are the root of his issues with Pump? “I paid him $1000 for a feature back in January — before he blew up,” he explains. Ultimately, he never delivered. “Our whole converstion is still there in my messages … and I have screenshots of all of it.”

This makes me accept his authenticity even more so.

“My biggest influence to start rapping was Lil Uzi,” he admits. “Watching him come up since 2015 inspired me … and Big Pun is an influence for me to write better bars.” The latter influence is admirable and demonstrates his willingness to take this (culture) seriously.

So, what’s his endgame? “My goals in the industry are to start doing full-length projects and get my music out to as many new people as I can,” he notes, confidently. “What’s next is for me is to start writing more and spending more time in the studio … now that I’ve started to have the success, I take this much more seriously.

He’s currently working on his debut mixtape, Bankrolls, which is due out this Fall. For now, check out what the Connecticut (t)rapper has to offer.
