Breeding Ground: JP Reynolds's Hip-Hop Melds Lauryn Hill And Jimi Hendrix

New artists are emerging and JP Reynolds is one you need to listen to.

(AllHipHop Features) To appreciate JP Reynolds, you would want to start with a performance. That's where I started, the Mercury Room in Manhattan, New York. JP were there, rocking it. At the show, the Mt. Vernon, NY native performed with a full band in front of a small group of family, friends and supporters. I ended up hanging out with his father after being introduced by a mutual friend. JP is impressive as an athlete-turned-artist, as well as the sort of cerebral brand of rap he manages to produce. Now based in Harlem, JP says he'd be the child of Jimi Hendrix and Lauryn Hill had a child. Remarkably special, JP Reynolds exudes the infinite possibilities in Hip-Hop where there are far too many complainers. Support can be scarce for the artist even though they create the music the community claims to exalt. JP keeps cooking regardless. He sprinkles a healthy helping of peace and power into his gumbo of rap, jazz, gospel, funk and soul. Meet JP Reynolds.
