Hip Hop’s become a language that is understood worldwide. I'm just trying to lend my own voice and perspective to my generation. Hip Hop raised me so I feel a responsibility to maintain honesty in my music and hopefully when all is said and done I become a legend in rap.

JD Era – LAST FM

Born April 15, 1985, Joseph “JD ERA” Dako was raised in Mississauga, Ontario and developed a love for music at an early age. This love keeps him listening to everything from Jay-Z to James Brown. He started rapping at the age of 14 and began making a name for himself throughout ciphers at local shows and concerts. At age 16 Era began writing rhymes and entered and won his first freestyle competition. His passion for battling other emcees has gained him a reputation as one of the top freestyle lyricists in Toronto. This summer he solidified his reputation with a victory at the Mark Ecko Getting Up Festival’s Freestyle Competition. Under the watchful eye of an energetic crowd and prestigious judges such as Mr.X, JD defeated 15 other emcees and emerged as the last man standing. This was one of the many highlights in his young and promising career.

Only twenty years young, JD is well aware that he is fairly new to the industry, and is more then willing to pay his dues. This summer he was one of the few featured artists on the Nike Battlegrounds Coat Of Arms compilation. He was also invited to perform in front of thousands at the Nike Battlegrounds tournament alongside international artist Kardinal Offishall among others. By the end of 2005 JD had completed two singles added to both Flow 93.5 and 91.5 The Beat. The first track “Ride Clean” received light rotation on both stations. The second, entitled “Take Me Home” featuring Sumeet took urban radio by storm.

JD Era "Turn This Up" (ft. Sardokie) – EXLAIM CANADA

Toronto-based rapper and Raekwon protégé JD Era announced his arrival with his No Handouts mixtape earlier this year. Now, he's returned with a new track called "Turn This Up."

The busy beat for this number, which comes courtesy of fellow Torontonian DZL, warrants the song title alone as you'll want to focus in on the bass-heavy riddims. All of it provides a solid atmosphere for Era to deliver his rhymes alongside collaborator Sardokie.

D Era vient de Toronto au Canada comme Drake. En 2009 les deux jeunes rappeurs ont même travaillé ensemble. Depuis l'un a rejoint l'équipe de Lil Wayne et l'autre "charbonne" avec une le légendaire MC du Shaolin : Raekwon The Chef.

Depuis le dabut de cette année Raekwon The Chef est bien Discret. Début janvier il a sorti sa mixtape "Unexpected Victory" avec d'ailleurs beaucoup de bonnes chansons et Depuis...plus rien ! Il se consacre plus sur la carrière de son talentueux jeune artiste.

Rae est avec Ghostace un des membres les plus actifs du Wu. Espérons qu'il insufflera en JD Era son éthique de travail. Ains qui sait i il pourra lui aussi peut-être rejoindre son ancien compadre Drake au sommet du Billboard américain.
