Veteran New Orleans artist J Lyric has put in a ton of work over the years, but no project has been more representative of his level of talent than the just released “Loyalty Over Love” album. As of midnight New Year’s Day, the project is available everywhere music is sold or streamed.
“Loyalty Over Love” was produced in part by Cas Major and features Chopper Young City, Y. LUCK and Tokyo Vanity. It’s truly a dope project!
“Lunette”, the first single off the album is also the first video to drop. It’s available on You Tube. Watch/Comment/Share and download/stream the album!
In what in probably one of the most remarkable projects by a music artist this year, J Lyric (@JASONLYRIC) just released the visuals to “Justice”, a new song based on current events and the historically racist acts and injustices perpetrated in the U.S.
In “Justice”, J Lyric stands up to racism, classism, and greed, and he makes a solid statement against those social ills that seem to have brought the country to its knees in the recent past. He also seeks to show nothing but respect for heroes like Colin Kaepernick, the NFL star who took a stand against police brutality and state sanctioned killings of African-Americans, through the use of deadly force during traffic stops and similar situations.
Follow J Lyric on his journey not only as a music artist, but also on his quest to shine a light on the dark areas that have contributed to injustices perpetuated on countless Americans – for if we do not admit mistakes have been made and strive to fix them, none of us can live up to the potential that we, as human beings, have a duty to live up to – our children’s dreams, as well as our own, will cease to exist until and unless we begin to figure out how to right the wrongs of our past.
New Orleans superstar J Lyric (a/k/a @JASONLYRIC on social media) just released his new single entitled “Facetime“. The song features internet sensation and fellow rapper Tokyo Vanity (@TokyoXVanity). As you can see, the visuals are on point and showcase the beauty of New Orleans’ world famous Lakefront. Yuset Pozo and Rafael Medina directed the video which includes drone shots far above Lake Ponchartrain and the drop top Bentley occupied by Tokyo during filming. Comedians Mario P (@_MarioDaComic_) and Rob Kazi (@tob_kazi) also have cameos and can be seen macking on Tokyo and her friends in classic New Orleans style!
In the first few days after Spinrilla leaked the single, it garnered over 20,000 downloads. “Facetime” is available for purchase on all major digital retail outlets, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and more and is, of course, available for streaming on Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and all other major streaming platforms.
Be on the lookout for new music from J Lyric, including a project entitled “Loyalty Over Love“, where he will drop nothing but hits. This is an artist to watch. He’s put in work for a minute and it’s about to pay off in huge dividends.
MIKODreamz PR client J Lyric made the NOPP ’16 (New Orleans People Project). World renowned photographer Gus Bennett, purveyor of the NOPP, captured J Lyric in his studio in New Orleans recently.
Mr. Bennett’s project endeavors to capture the best of New Orleans and artist/businessman Jason “J Lyric” Delaney most definitely fits that bill. Check out some more of J Lyric and the NOPP ’16 photoshoot.
