"Star rising over the Steel City"

Just back from a promotional tour through Nashville, Niagara’s own rising urban artist Just Isaac is ready to release his new CD ‘Just Wait’ in the Steel City.
Local fans and friends are invited to a knockout night of entertainment joining Immortal Sound for the launch party Saturday, June 25 at the King of Kings Boxing Club in Hamilton.
A story of trials and triumphs, failures and victories – the poetry-sown theme that stirs every track on the new album is about relationships, says the local artist. “I am naked on this project. I am not afraid to be Just Isaac.” Urban, hip hop, rock fused – it’s musical manna that speaks to real-life experiences.
The Indie Report calls Just Isaac a new artist with “the songs, the talent, and the style that all come together.”
The popular online venue for independent artist reviews says Just Isaac’s melding of hot R&B, hip hop and a positive lyrical stance means “his EP ‘Just Wait’ bristles with emotion and musicianship.”
“From the lead track ‘His Love’ the listener is taken on an adventure in sound and spirit reminding one of the classic soulsters like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway mixed with modern hip hop lyricists, aka, 2Pac, KRS-One and Drake.”
But more than just laying down memorable tracks, this singer/songwriter/poet has a message to share. “God has put a desire in me to hunger and thirst to be Just.”
“This album is my heart. God has helped me to be transparent about the delivery of the songs,” said Just Isaac, crediting vocal contributions from featured artists including the powerful voice of Juno-nominated Kim Davis and the soulful vibes of Ray Robinson.
‘Just Wait’ marks the completion of many months of hard work and follows his first poetic album ‘Remember Me.’
The track ‘Love Language’ features Robinson. Other highlights include tracks, ‘A Friend Like You’ and the autobiographical ‘How I Ride.’
Jay Warsinske, CEO of Indie Power calls Just Isaac, “one of the breakthrough artists of the year.”
It will be a packed night of entertainment with special appearances by female hip hop artist Nilla; heavyweight boxing champ Ray Olubowale; and award winning tap dance/choreographer David Cox. The CD release party is Saturday, June 25 at the King of Kings Boxing Club, courtesy of club owner Nick ‘Fox’ Farrell, at 797 Barton St. E., Hamilton. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., 8 p.m. start, $5 and a food donation, $2 off CDs. For more details visit www.justisaac.com. - Niagara This Week

"Just Isaac In MEGACITY"

Imagine being the best fighter in the country, travelling the world for competitions, modelling, acting and swordfighting while completing a full-length album and promoting it universally. For most, this would only be a dream. However, for Just Isaac all of these aspects have become a reality.

In only a few short years, Just Isaac has accomplished more than many do in a lifetime. With the release of his much anticipated album “Remember Me,” Just Isaac has become a “rare commodity.” It’s not too often we find such an extreme degree of talent wrapped in a single package.

After countless concerts, music videos, continental radio play and universal exposure, Just Isaac’s raw talent and versatile flow continue to draw the listener back for more. His lyrics reflect a lifetime of experiences and captivate his thoughts in a unique manner. Along with his natural skill and talent, Just Isaac’s “no-nonsense” and “down-to-earth” approach make his music easy listenening and identifiable for any listener. - MEGACITYHIPHOP.COM


Rapper Just Isaac teams with teen initiative for free concert

‘The Event’ is just for youth. Rapper Just Isaac will unite with GeneroCity for ‘The Event’ a free concert, Friday, Nov. 25 at Lundy’s Lane United Church, 5825 Lowell Ave. in Niagara Falls. The youth of Niagara Region need to be shown how much they are appreciated, says the leader of an organization devoted to serving this demographic.
Steve Samuels, founder of the GeneroCity Beamsville youth initiative has devoted his life to communicating that message to teens, and has partnered with local rap artist Just Isaac to create a unique way of sharing this message.
“Teens need to be shown that they matter, that they count, and are important,” Samuels said, adding that youth aren’t interested solely in talk and that they need action to back up words.
GeneroCity’s monthly gathering, called simply “The Event”, seeks to become a venue that outdoes itself in showing today’s youth what over-the-top giving looks like.
Fellow collaborator Just Isaac believes in the outreach to teens, to the point that the artist is donating his musical talents to it. “One youth being guided into vision and purpose is worth more than all the money in the world,” the rapper said. “Monetary gain is temporary but destiny is forever.”
The Event takes place on Friday, November 25, at 7 p.m., at Lundy’s Lane United Church, 5825 Lowell Ave. in Niagara Falls.
Just Isaac can be contacted at justisaac.com. His latest recording “Just Wait” is available through his website and at both CD Baby and Amazon.com.
GeneroCity is an organization dedicated to giving generously to teens in Niagara area. More information can be found at www.generocity.me. Samuels can be reached at 905-563-4165 or by email at - NIAGARA THIS WEEK


Niagara - Most of Isaac Mitchell's childhood friends are dead or in jail. When he performs in prisons, he looks out at the crowd and knows he could have very easily been one of them.

He escaped the life, but he doesn't judge. As he sees it, he hasn't "done anything" yet.

"I'm no better," he says. "I've just been given some insight. And some foresight. I have so much more to do."

To his followers, Mitchell has led a pretty full life already. At 11-years-old, he was gang-affiliated while living in upstate New York. As a teen he relocated to Niagara Falls and won provincial and national boxing titles. As an adult, he followed his family's musical path to become Just Isaac, a hip hop artist without the attitude or ugly lyrics - just soulful inspiration.

These days, he balances both boxing and music. Since the death of his beloved trainer Hank Boone last month, he has taken several young fighters under his wing at Boone's Lundy's Lane gym. He insists no one can ever replace Boone - he's the coach who guided Mitchell to victory at a middleweight tournament last year in London, ON - but someone has to fill the void here.

Now, Mitchell's doing the mentoring.

"We try to not just instill values for boxing, but values for life," he says. "My phone rings at all different times. I'll put everything down to help them."

"I see a lot of potential. These are kids with a lot of heart."

Once the gloves come off, the guitar comes out. His acoustic style of hip hop has seen him perform across Canada and the U.S., often in churches. Sometimes in prisons, where the crowd doesn't tolerate phoniness.

"If you're real, people pick up on that," he says. "Thirty inmates at a time walk into a room, and they look right at you. They look into you. You can't hide, and you have to be who you are."

Like his father, Mitchell was sucked in by gang life at an early age. But it was his father who sternly told him being in a gang didn't make him a man. He left, but not without heartache and mistakes he's still atoning for.

Music was the other path his dad opened up for him as a singer with New World Productions. Mitchell started rapping while he was still boxing, and was shocked how easily the songs poured out.

He released his first album in 2005, performed at the first Niagara Music Awards in 2008, and brings his message to Lundy's Lane United Church for a free show Friday night with special guest DJ Nate.

"We're giving back to the youth of community," - Niagara Falls Review

"Just Isaac Takes Centre Stage"

Though he's been offered record deals, he hasn't signed to any company yet. He created his own Indie Label, Immortal Sound. He explained that a lot of record companies want their artists to project the image they want them to have "I want to be real before the world" Isaac said, adding that he just want to be himself.

“Music that inspires, uplifts and encourages. A positive message laced with life's experiences”

Just Isaac (JI), an international hip-hop artist with an alternative style and piercing lyrics is carving out his spot among hip hop greats. His music has been described as inspirational, uplifting, and encouraging- A positive message laced with life's experiences.

JI was born in upstate New York and grew up surrounded by the musical talents of his parents. He earned his stripes and perfected his public persona while traveling the world as a member of the Canadian Olympic Boxing Team. JI went on to become Provincial Champion, National Champion, and Golden Gloves Champion.

One day while training JI heard a song that spoke to his heart in a way that only music could. He put down the gloves and picked up a microphone hoping to inspire people the same way he was inspired. JI had a natural ability to connect with the people and it wasn’t long before the warrior revealed the poet by writing, recording, and performing his own music.

As a lyricist and producer, JI’s music is cutting edge and crisp. His lyrics speak to the human struggle and celebrates each victory. In 2007 JI released his debut CD titled, "Remember Me. The title track of the same name featured a video viewed by millions worldwide. JI introduced his fans to his bare-it-all style of lyrical expression with a heart-felt ballad titled, “My Son”. The Remember Me project earned JI a loyal new fanbase and widespread radio play.

JI has collaborated and shared the stage with artists like Daylon Collins (Kirk Franklin), Willie D (Getto Boyz) Kim Davis, Ray Robinson, Johnny Roxx, and many more. JI’s second CD project titled “Just Wait” is a collection of music that is impartial in its raw content. It is a narrative of relationships, faith and love.

"I thank God for every gift and talent He has given.”
