Jonny Empire Delivers ‘Category 5’ (Album)

Jonny Empire is a lyrical heavy-hitter hailing from Stamford, CT, who debuts on our page today with his new album titled “Category 5.” Laced with 12 tracks, Jonny only calls for one guest feature from Queens emcee Cise Greeny, using the rest of the time to deliver havoc bar-after-bar himself. Production handled by the likes of The Working Man, Unlucky Bastards, Regal, Anabolic, Ruggz and Vintage.

Jonny gave a brief statement about the new project:

I’m proud to present my new album “Category 5.” Leading up to this release, I had the opportunity to release two EP’s that gained some traction online earlier in the year. After focusing on releasing singles, video content as well as the EP’s, Category 5 was an album I started working on in March during the early days of quarantine.[cont.d]” ‘m so thankful for everyone involved, especially the producers, who provided a canvas for me to discuss current events, goals and aspirations as we go into 2021 and overall, continuing to be the best artist I can possibly be. Life has thrown many curveballs our way this year, giving everyone the opportunity to reflect and make sure things are where we want them to be in life. This album was my version of this mental exercise and hope many others can relate to the songs on here as well.”

Evie Blanco About Author

I hail from Corona, Queens NY. I'm a Music Head, a sneakerhead, a mother to a beautiful baby girl who also loves hip-hop, and collects kicks. Music, primarily hip-hop has been a huge part of my life since I got a pink boom-box, at age 5. Listening to Angie Mar, Monie Love, Steph Lova, Jazzy Joyce, and Coco Chanel, I always had an itch to enter the culture somehow, and I did; as an emcee. I gained mad respect and love from some of the illest and most respected rappers, producers, and DJs in the game, and for that, my love for the art will forever be genuine. I always thought I'd get into radio, but in 2014, I found my calling as a journalist, and I've been rockin 'ever since. I enjoy all types of music, as long as it's dope, and my most passionate writing, and truest words, will always come from something or someone I believe in or stand for.
