Mr. Reign – The Real Me
My long-time friend, Marvin Prince: the man that introduced “Snow” and the track “Informer” to the world, often sends tracks from new artists, my way. We are both old school DJ’s from the 80’s and 90’s and he respects my ear and opinion on the tracks. There have been quite a few good ones here and there, but when he sent me a track called “Booty Up” from an artist called, Mr. Reign, I told him that this kid was the real deal. Brooklyn-born and Queens raised Raymond Basora aka Mr. Reign has a skillful and clean sound with the ability to mix reggae and dance-hall skills with R&B/Hip-Hop tracks, all on his own, something many artists need a collaboration to pull off.
Check out the video of Mr. Reign’s visit to Toronto to meet up with Marvin Prince and Charles Peart of MAC-FAC Management.
