The current state of hip-hop in NYC is “corny,” according to Queens, New York native DJ JS-1 – and he’s here to rectify the situation. With the help of fellow New York MCs Lil Fame of M.O.P., Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse and Freddie Foxxx (aka Bumpy Knuckles), JS-1 is excited to release “Reppin’ NY,” the new street single from his upcoming album, No One Cares, which will be released June 21st on Fat Beats Records. “It’s been sad watching New York artists trying desperately to make ‘down-south’ music, using corny beats and biting slang,” says JS-1. “So while no New York DJs are even making albums, let alone New York hip-hop, we decided to let everyone know, ‘we’re the realest right now reppin’ NY.'”

JS-1 keeps it classic with an authentic, bass-tastic, scratch-heavy, take-no-prisoners production on “Reppin’ NY.” Add three of the most desirable MCs in the game, and you get a song that would make any loyalist proud. “Working with Freddie Foxxx and Lil Fame for the first time was such a treat. I have always loved, felt, and spun their music from day one,” says JS-1, who called up legendary DJ Premier to connect him with those MCs. “Joell is really dope and the ‘the new hope’ for NY artists still doing hardcore music,” he adds. “To work with all three of them and get them on the same song, especially in these days and times – it’s an honor.” JS-1 wants “Reppin’ NY” to be an impetus for NY artists to step up their game, and a cease and desist order for imitation MCs. “It’s cute to follow trends and make songs trying to fit in the current radio format, but we don’t do that shit,” says JS. “You don’t have to make crap to do well.”

DJ JS-1’s No One Cares will be available for purchase on June 21st on Fat Beats Records.
