J.R.Clark is not a conventional artist. He understands that his work has more substance than most. His latest album ‘When Muzik Was Good” is 11-tracks long and full of heart. The production level is A1 and the amount of flexing is high. Insecure listeners may feel away after hearing this project. Virginia Beach may be at the bottom of the 757 but it is near the top when it comes to creativity. The Tidewater representer was able to create his own version of luxury rap that is reminiscent of old Jay-Z and Rick Ross. If this album was in stores you would probably find it on the shelf in Nordstrom, not Target.
J.R.Clark on his new project!
“The creative process to the album was an enjoyable moment because I recorded the entire album in my home studio I just built during the global pandemic, and at the same rate, it really allowed me to reach out to other independent artists on social media for collaboration efforts. Additionally, during the COVID-19, I devote a lot of time and patience to developing my craft, sound quality, and visuals.
I feel that everything I put out for public consumption must sound right, look right, and feel right. In retrospect, “When Muzik Was Good” was influenced by T.I., Pusha T, Rick Ross, and Jay-Z. I listen to their records for inspiration because the sound of Hip-Hop that I grew up on has diminished in this day and age and has made a hard left turn for the worst. I just want to give music followers and listeners an experience that takes them back to the golden era of the music culture” –J.R. Clark
J.R.Clark has shared tracks with Smoke DZA, MMG’s Stalley, and Jet Life Records own Fendi P. His music relates to so many people because he is versatile. For example, his voice and flow patterns are unmatchable, and this can be seen in songs like “They Say” and “911 Porsche featuring Alonda Rich“. His rapping consistently sets off the alarm – “I’m cut different, certain stuff I don’t mention, when the bags came in, it felt like the night before Christmas”. ‘When Muzik Was Good’ is easily J.R.Clark’s best project so far. He wanted to start 2021 off with a bang.
