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.

K!NG Pablo Drops “Blood On My Hands” Single

Texas MC K!NG Pablo has been producing beats and writing songs since the tender age of 12. Back in 2016, his career took a turn when he signed a one-year artist development deal with Bentley Records and exclusively signing a deal with Sonorous Records the following year.

 
His latest single “Blood On My Hands” is a story of letting go; of past (fake) friends, and all those who seek to hold him down. “I don’t like being forced to cut off friends — and if I have to I will do it all again,” he raps atop the the bouncy electronic-tinged beat shrouded in radio-ready appeal.

The song is an exciting look at what the MC has planned for 2019. Stream it, now.

Muenster Drops Off His Latest Single ”Message”

Veteran Texas MC Muenster found inspiration for his sophomore full-length solo LP — via Gitmo Music — Weirdope in the contrast between our highly individual experiences and how those personal perspectives come together to fuel the motion of the whole. “Humanity’s organism-like interdependence,” he says.

Coming of Radio Dogpile, a project he described to AAHH as his opus back in June of 2016, the latest release is laced with futuristic, crunchy synth production, while finding balance in the classic hip-hop soundtracks of his youth — an era that the well-seasoned rapper and live venue mainstay holds near and dear to his heart.

The first single/video, “Message,” is a poignant piece of necessary dialogue, beginning with the sentiment that all the promotion of drug and crime culture on social media and music (which go hand in hand in 2018) distracts from the issues most plaguing the most marginalized within society.

According to the MC, the song sets the tone for the new project, which should be exciting for listeners looking for that realness.

Chris B Skates Past Detractors On New Single “Still Up”

Lake Elsinore, California, native Chris B drops his lyrically scathing new single, “Still Up.” Without knowing the context — there are tons of personal jabs, like for Justin who he tells to eat a dick within the first eight bars — the track is overflowing with frustration and energy. “Now that I got my shit together, people hate that I’m so fuckin’ clever,” he raps in the chorus.

In essence, this is an anthem for putting people who are swirling with negative energy pn blast, as you skate past them on your sharp ascent toward bigger and better things — something Chris B, who has been dropping music for the past 18 years, knows all too well.

Doing it entirely on the indie tip, Chris aims to motivate and inspire fans, telling honest stories with his music. The latest single is off of his eight-song Reflection project, which is his follow up to last year’s 4 AM project. Check out the track, below.

Justin Don: Going The Distance

Detroit rapper Justin Don is a surprisingly refreshing listen; the young artist doesn’t come from a background that you may associate with a particular sect of the the young crops of artists. Likewise, he doesn’t subscribe to any extreme isms or portray himself as a character trying to cash in on a fad. He is just a kid who likes making music — and his shit has some knock to it!

It’s not entirely clear when his full-length Will Of The D is set to hit the streets, but thus far he has a foursome of tracks available on all streaming networks that show what he’s capable of. His music accurately paints the portrait of a young man in between graduation and forever, finding his footing one milestone at a time. The vibe is a little of everything; there’s blends of pop, hip-hop, world sounds, and bouncy sound beds that would find themselves at home in just about any playlist of top 40 tracks.

“Waves,” which he notes in a Vlog will be given a visual treatment shortly, is the theme song of a summer smoke out with the team; to date, it’s easily his biggest — see best — song. “Distance” is a close second. “The more chains I have on, the less I feel like myself,” he croons, again adding to this idea that he isn’t trying to be something he isn’t. This particular song is also a testament to the work he intends to put into this game.

At it’s best, it’s just insanely smooth, and perfect for anything involving positive vibes, barbequing, and summer nights. At it’s worst, it’s similar to a lot of stuff currently out there and doesn’t honestly put him on a different plane. However, whether that’s what he ultimately wants to do isn’t transparent. At only four singles in, he’s well on his way — and has enough quality to build himself a solid foundation.

Here’s to going the distance!
