New Music: Jo$e Rivera – “Air It Out”
Similiar to ‘Pablo Escobar who symbolized the trap & the people,’ Atlanta representer, Jo$e Rivera, has managed to thrive through all unforeseen obstacles and experiences, instead of folding under pressure, he used his failures and disappointments to grow as an creative artist. Jo$e uses the challenges he has encountered as a motivational tool to succeed and reach new pinnacles. The Panamanian decent artist always used music as a outlet to express himself with his true calling. He started rapping and creating music to tell stories and reflect on various personal situations. Through this, Jo$e Rivera, has perfected a strong and unique voice, with the ability to story tell in his lyrics. Cultivating this sound became his focus after his first project, Payday, received very little attention. This pushed him to create his 2011 mix-tape, The Lay Off, which created a lot of buzz for the indie rapper as it spoke to listeners in a much more personal way. His supporters appreciated this use of creative lyricism. The positive feedback from, The Layoff, encouraged him to continue his hard work, and motivated Rivera to keep leveling up and creating catchy cleverly-written bars. When he composed a third mix-tape, entitled, Becoming Legendary; this project showed his growth and commitment as a rising artist.
Jo$e Rivera, is working on his fourth project and follow-up tape titled, “Becoming Legendary II – Dreams Never Die”. The forthcoming tape tells a story of how to not give up on your dreams, stand tall through any obstacle and weather the storm until your blessings come down. Rivera has been able to collaborate with Mickey Factz, Curtis Williams – Two9, Jace – Two9, Euro Gotit and Kur on the project. He briefly explains what his creative process entails;
“My creative process was the TV on mute with a movie and something to sip on and listening to the beat for about 30 mins and then I wrote my verse. The real message is people think like this all the time. What we have to do as men is control our emotions but if things escalate to were we have to use this type of force then you have to be ready. I want my listeners to know that I am a confident rapper who isn’t afraid to address any issue whether is positive or negative. I also want my listeners to know that I dedicate myself in perfecting the best verse on every record I record.”
