[Interview] RH First Look: JD Era
While the world moves faster than ever, and patience is a rare attribute, Toronto emcee JD Era is bracing himself for the long haul. JD comes from Toronto’s independent Hip Hop community, earning stripes and respect in the battle scene while dropping gems since 2008, a few featuring his fellow Toronto native, Drake. While he collaborated with Drake, JD didn’t seek to ride any coattails, nor use Drake’s star to build his own. He has continued that theme since inking a deal with Raekwon, and releasing the new mixtape, No Handouts. It this old-fashioned attitude that has JD Era poised for continued success and a strong member of Hip Hop’s new class. We get to know JD a little better in our latest First Look.
