JD Era signs to Raekwon’s ICEH20 [News]
Toronto, ON – We’ve been offering a variety of Raekwon based coverage recently as he travelled the country performing new material and bigging up “all this talent” we have up north. Just this past 420 (April 20th) in Vancouver, Raekwon lit one up with HipHopCanada West Coast Editor, Amalia Judith, and spoke in detail exclusively to HipHopCanada of plans to open a Canadian branch to his new label, ICEH20. Here’s what he told us back in April:
“I’m startin’ an ice-h20 Canada record company out here, so all this talent out here that’s sunken in this situation where they not able to carry it across seas, across the world, across to America, I’m here to give them the opportunity. Right now I think I’ve got enough business savvy friends that’s going to come and help me allow others to get into this business. There’s a lot of talent here. It’s been too many years that we’re not able to hear the music like how ya’ll hearing us constantly. I wanna be able to hear ya’ll constantly the same way, and see new artists come and get on.”
The very first artist signed to the new Canadian branch is reported to be JD Era who has quickly become one of the hottest artists coming out up north. We caught up with Era to get his take on the new situation: “I’m excited to be working with Raekwon and the ICEH20 family. We’re looking forward to doing some big things for hip-hop in this counry.”
Update: Raekwon confirmed the reports by retweeting this story link and also writing his own message: “IT’S official, Welcome to the ballclub @JDERA!!!! Newest member to #iceh20records. Rt this crack!”
