JayR City Is On A Path To Greatness As An Artist

By  | 

JayR City comes to us out of Cleveland, Ohio. He was raised in a super strict, single parent home and shared many of the common struggles of the inner-city youth. As a boy, he discovered Tupac and was inspired to express himself through music.

He released his first album in 2019. You can find “II July” on all major platforms! In an interview broadcast on iHeartRadio, City compares his first collection to “a pot of gumbo.” From beginning to end, City takes the opportunity to showcase his surprisingly broad range. He raps with bars like, “Broke n*ggas starting the whip is exotic. The money is dirty, take Benjamin showers” and “My lap is full of her intelligence I blow her brains out. And let her boyfriend bag the evidence.” He shows us a chill, smooth flow in songs like “Regardless” and “Good For You,” then hits us with some trap in “Palace Doors” and “Crowns (ft. Ripp Flamez).” In his hit single “High,” we learn that the man can sing!

The official video for “High” can be found on his YouTube channel. The visual for this song is creative, sexy, and matches the story that he lyrically expresses. It’s one we’re all familiar with. HipHop Revival describes it as, “depicting the common struggle of the allure of wanting what we can’t have.” The video for “High” has over 15 thousand views on YouTube and continues to be discovered by music lovers around the world.

This Fall, City is looking to release his second album, “Progression to Greatness” where he finds himself riding more comfortably in the R&B lane. But don’t sleep on his rap game. We hope to see this album drop in the coming months and can’t wait to watch this artist’ career develop.

JayR City is definitely one to keep your eye on. He was born with a gift and the music community is lucky that he’s sharing it! “Love and Hip Hop” star Lil Scrappy contacted City about working together and he’s not the only one. Just before his untimely passing, DMX heard City’s music and had directly reached out to him and Mario has posted about him on his personal Instagram page. City has shown us what he can do and he’s about to give us so much more. JayR City is definitely on the radar!
