JSR is an un-signed hip-hop and dance music artist from the Metro-Detroit area of Michigan. He produces all of his own music and writes his own lyrics. JSR is well networked on the Detroit nightlife and party scene, as well as the student campus scenes. He has worked with many local artists, and in 2012 released his debut studio album entitled “Above Average.”
JSR recently opened up for the Ying Yang twins, and has received radio airplay on Detroit’s 89x Radio Station, for which he was the “pick-of-the-week” from local talent. JSR performed at club Bleu Detroit for his album release party, back in June. He prides himself on a music style that is unique and different from the Detroit norm. JSR who is currently managed by DJ Substanc3, whom himself has opened up for such acts as Far East Movement, has spent the past few years networking on the Detroit nightlife scene, with radio DJs, video directors, club owners, and more, as he wants to truly share his music and bring a new and dynamic element to the music industry.
JSR has also dropped his brand new 2013 single, “Bye Bye Mr. Nice Guy,” which is available for download on iTunes and Cdbaby.
JSR has the personality and charisma that makes him instantly likable. He has a different flow on each song and accentuates his words to let you know he has confidence in his rhymes. He is lyrically adept at talking about women and throwing game, as well as dropping fire for the underground. On his album, “Above Average,” you get the feeling that JSR knows how to be slow and slinky as well as get the clubs popping with anything he releases, because he shows off so much energy.

JSR made a stamp with his debut “Above Average,” and continues the lyrical and musical flow over a hot beat on his new single. This is how rap should be done. A perfect fusion of rhymes and beats, mixed to create a solid collection of songs to play on repeat.
The great thing about rap music is that there are so many directions to choose from. If you want consciousness then you can pick up The Roots, Mos Def, J-Live, etc. However, if you just want to ride out and enjoy clever lyrics, then pick up some JSR. He has rhymes for miles and a really smart way with words. Checkout: “Don’t Count Me Out,” “Shake Salt,” “9000,” and “Bad Day Good Night,” from his debut album, to grasp the depth and versatility of his style.
JSR is managing to carve out his own style and is doing so in a manner that allows him separation from the rest of the crowded Detroit scene. JSR raps slow, he raps fast, he raps about hard times, he raps about good times, he is all over the place, and this plays testimony to the fact that he is secure enough with his rhymes to try anything. All the more reason why you should try JSR!
