Biography

J.Reyez was born in South Korea but was raised in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He is 17 years old but has more lyrical talent than other mature rappers in the game. Growing up, J.Reyez listened to rap/hiphop artists such as 2Pac, Rakim, Wu-Tang, Biggie, among other great lyricists. It wasn’t just the artists that attracted his ear, it was more of how the songs were put together; engineering and production wise and as well as the lyrics that were being spoken in the track(s). Growing up in Hamilton, life wasn’t easy for J. Reyez but he kept his hopes high and worked his way through, doing what he had to do. Why the name? J.Reyez is pronounced J.Rise. The J stands for the initial of his first name and the Reyez (Rise) stands for his fast elevation since stepping in to the music game getting people looking and watching his every move, getting better and better song after song, hit after hit.

Since the separation of his parents in 2006, J.Reyez and his family struggled to make ends meet financially and he has taken it upon himself to help out anyway he can from helping out with the bills to helping put food on the table. Growing up, J.Reyez had a background of doing things a lot of people consider to be wrong and in the summer of 2006, he ran into some trouble with the law, making it hard for him to live the normal life he wishes upon himself day in day out. After pleading guilty to his charge, he was released and now has dedicated his life to the one thing that helped him deal with his emotions and escape from the troubled life he has lived, MUSIC.
