Prepping his debut on the hip-hop scene, rapper E-Reign has released his newest single “Need More” to introduce his brand to a wider audience, touch the soul and promote the realness. “Need More” is a flurry of hi-hats and snares, a soulful sample chorus, and wavy synths that create a New York vibe (something the rapper feels many artists from his city are afraid to stand behind) and a go-and-get-it attitude to match, brought on by E-Reign’s desire to further his craft and build his empire.
In addition, the single serves to uplift the members of the community and encourage them to constantly strive for more, no matter how much they have already accomplished. Emile Lapaix Jr., better known as E-Reign, is a hip hop artist from Long Island, New York. Introduced to hip hop culture at age 10, E-Reign began writing raps after being profoundly influenced by Nas, 2Pac and LL Cool J. Regardless of their career trajectories, all of these artists were born in New York and implemented that Big Apple flavor and mentality in all of their work, teaching E-Reign to keep the city close to him as he ventured out into the music industry and the world at large.
After originally starting out as part of a group recording in its basement with accessible resources, the rapper decided to take his solo career seriously, beginning to record hungrily and performing to improve his skill. Since then, E-Reign has been on a constant grind to establish himself in the industry, and lately the public has started to take notice; he was the recipient of the 2014 Forbes Music Inc. “Performance Artist of the Year” Award, was featured in The Source Magazine, The Hype Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly, and has had his records in radio rotations across the United States.
E-Reign is currently preparing to tour overseas and promote his brand globally, as well as release his own clothing line, L3. The name stands for Longevity, Loyalty and Love, qualities that he exhibits in himself and looks to advocate throughout his career. The rapper also plans to release several singles in the upcoming months, further establishing his position as the Future of New York.
