Brooklyn bred James R. is ready to use his Love and Hip Hop: New York platform to show off his smooth vocal style, coupled with his alluring confidence. The singer/songwriter made a big splash upon joining the cast this season as Mariahlynn’s boyfriend.
Aside from his good looks, this unique combination of street-savvy roughness with a soulful appeal also isn’t shabby in the vocal booth. In “Hold Up” James R. reminisces about an old relationship in which he is clearly the better option. Over a slow, melodic beat James’ words perfectly reflect the perils of modern dating.
Previously, James has opened shows for rappers like Juelz Santana and his latest project features collaborations with artists such as Maino, Jim Jones, and Dave East.
