Election Day: How Emerging Artist E-REIGN Plans to Change Hip-Hop
Being in the music industry is a hustle. It’s no easy job, and few survive and make ti because they cannot bare the hard work that goes into the “every day hustle and bustle” of being successful in the industry.
Brooklyn, New York native Emile Lapaix Jr., better known as E-REIGN, is a true born hustler in the industry and has given the world a sneak peak into what an average day consists of for him in his latest single, “Money’s Calling” off of his EP Election Day.
The New Yorker’s purpose is to forge an remarkable path in the music industry through his beloved passion of Hip-Hop. Throughout his life he was exposed to various genres of music, but none captured his soul like Hip-Hop. He was influenced by the compelling storytelling and hypnotic flow of popular artists such as LL Cool J, Nas and Tupac. They made music that the masses could relate to which is what Lapaix does through his music.
Since the rapper has been engulfed in music, he has enjoyed several career opportunities that allowed him to gain experience in the field and continued growth as an artist. He has performed quite a few shows over the last few years with DJ Kay Slay, Jae Millz and Jason Fox, and other familiar faces.
We recently interviewed the rising Hip-Hop icon on his newest musical offering which is a hard hitting, feel food EP entitled Election Day and the newly elected single is called ‘Money Calling’.He combines the good life and life’s trials to assemble a musical blend that many can relate to.
