Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Carefully Crafted Hip-hop Music That Inspires: Rice Releases A Hit New Single Speaks On Integrity, Love, And Respect.

“Juice” is a cleverly crafted musical piece that centers on the injustices of today all of which are highlighted through catchy musical tunes and lyrical depth.

Webster, MA — June 28th, 2022- Rice is a new up-and-coming artist who has worked exceptionally hard to be able to relay the right message through the music that he crafts. The rising star believes that his musical craft is both critical of the current times we live in as well as a celebration of the resistance strategies against the oppression rampant in society.

The rising star wishes to create music that is reflective and in-ward looking; music that inspires some form of critical thinking. Rice believes that listeners should be inspired by the musical tunes while also vibing out and just enjoying the sounds and lyrics of this song. These meaningful compositions are a product of a careful amalgamation of real-life experiences with music to ensure both relatability and enjoyment.

The main focus is a question that Rice asks himself as well as the listeners to reflect which is “How Far Would You Go To Secure Your Legacy”- a simple yet powerful query for contemplation. There are so many choices and controversies in the world that have a huge impact on our lives. The Events of George Floyd, changed the message and lyrics of the rising star’s music so the end goal that Rice had was to hope to inspire and better someone else’s life as well.

“Juice” is an eclectic musical production based on several references from the artists’ own life. The single is a motivational piece that makes the audience aspire to become the best version of themselves with surety, tracing the narrative of two strong leaders and their decision-making. The single has been created by the District 2 studio in Worcester with amazing recording, mixing, and mastering along with the extremely talented Robert Tar. This music simply takes you to a new place with the mix of inspiring tunes that it crafts.
