Kitchener-Waterloo, ON – MC-producer RM$¥(aka: Ramsay Almighty) just released his latest single titled “Pallet Town” (produced by Misogi) as a salute to NCAA newcomer Jamal Murray.
Jamal currently plays for the University of Kentucky Wildcats of the NCAA. And Jamal was also named the MVP of the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit, and is considered a potential top prospect for the 2016 NBA draft.
For the record – Jamal and RMSY both came up in Kitchener. And when you’re from a small city like that, one person making waves is big news for everyone. Here’s how RMSY explained it to me: “My city’s small. Everyone knows everyone. I met Jamal at a local gym where we played a few games. Do I know him on a personal level? No. But I can’t deny that he’s an inspiration to me and the city. I believe he’ll be on of the greatest to do it. And as an artist it’s my job to give back and create waves that represent where I’m from. Tri City ting.”
