about

Coming from the hills of Northern California, J Ras has been turning heads and opening minds across the nation with his uplifting music and high energy stage show. Seamlessly blending modern roots reggae with hip hop and dancehall, J Ras is set to release his second solo album “Find My Way” this fall, after successfully touring across the U.S. on Vans Warped Tour this past summer. With multiple nation wide tours under his belt and collaborations with world renowned artists like Scarub of Living Legends and international reggae artist Prezident Brown, J Ras is ready to take the world by storm with the support of his fans, new album, and upcoming tours. It is important for J Ras as a family man to pass on a positive message through his music and live performances.
After a busy year of touring across the country in 2013, J Ras went back in the studio to finish his second album, appropriately titled "Find My Way". The album is a journey through modern roots reggae, conscious hip hop, and high energy dancehall complimented by J Ras’ diverse vocal abilities and inspiring lyrics. Each track flows effortlessly into the next, easily capturing how much the artist has progressed since the release of his last full length album in 2011. Solid features from renowned hip hop emcee Scarub of Living Legends, Jamaican reggae artist Prezident Brown, Jahworks the Revolutionary from Hawaii, Mendo Dope, and more round out the album. Lady Grace adds sultry female vocals on the tracks Guess What and Long Time Coming. Even J Ras' kids, twelve year old Lil Chase and five year old Baby Grace, are featured on the song Way Back along with Scarub. J Ras and guests combine relatable lyrics with danceable grooves and infectious melodies, to make every song stand out in its own way.
Standout songs include the title track Find My Way, which tells the story of J Ras' life as a musician always on and off the road, over a smooth flute laced reggae groove. Join the Party is an upbeat party anthem sure to have you singing along by the end of the song. The inspirational lyrics and acoustic guitar on It's Time build up to the perfect ending that features a childrens chior. The track Way Back pays homage to J Ras' hip hop roots with an old school feel good vibe. The overall attention to detail and production on this album help it to stand out in this digital music era that often lacks originality. J Ras has perfected his sound with "Find My Way" and will be supporting the album with regional tour dates in 2014 and a national tour in early 2015.

Track Name: Find My Way
Chorus:
I'm still trying to find my way
My way Back home from yesterday
No hope for what's to come
I've come undone as they would say
And Still I need some love
To rise above from all the hate
Yes its such a shame
Its just a game Of give or take

Verse1:
Can you relate to the vibes
Everyday gettin by
Gotta hustle to survive
Only chance to stay alive
Is find means to provide
So my seeds can thrive
Can't stand upon the side lines

And So I'm fighting everyday
Searching for a better way
But i Can't give in to what them a say
And so we must break away
Find the strength to mek a change
Can't keep struggling always

Chorus

Verse 2:
No hope for tomorrow
When today is so rough
Life is full of sorrow
But we nah give it up
No matter the situation that a come
We just keep spreadin more love to everyone

Bc we all live
Under the same sun
Can't pass judgement upon anyone
We must trust in ourselves and always overcome
All of the negativity up inna Babylon

Chorus

Verse 3:
Said its so sad to see
Youths live in poverty
When there's enough to go around
But some are too greedy
Believe me
It's not something seen just on TV
we've got to come together
Now to help the needy

The most high provides
& The cycle never ends
What goes around comes right back round again
you receive the result of what you put in
So always give your all
And don't ever give in!


Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Rising Up
Rising Up:

Intro:
Just let it flow
Feel it in your soul
Let the music move you
Come on let it take control
Just let it go
Try to take it slow
They can't hold us down
And so we've got to let them know that

Chorus:
We're Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on rising up
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on finding love
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on rising up
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on fightin, keep on fightin

Verse 1:
Yes ya know we gotta be that change
Striving to go against the grain
Said the People gotta hear it they can feel it in their spirit cause you know that I'm goin insane
Way too much on plate to escape
Wanna run but I can't get away
Gotta try to find a brighter day but always seem to end up out of luck just stuck in the rain

All this pain and hate from the day to day got me feelin like I'm waitin
wasting away
Chasing paper while my dreams are fading away
But my kids gotta eat
So I need to get paid
That's why I rock every stage
Like it might be my last
always get up
If I fall on my ass
Gotta put it in the past
Staying focused on the future
Cause you know that im always Moving forward fast

But I'll never give in
Never give up
Thanks to the people
That have showed me love
Way before I was blowin up
Cause they know I put so much love
into this music every day
And every night
So it's only right
That I gotta rise and try to make something up out of my life
with these rhymes I write

I'll
keep rising
keep climbing
Let the people know ill keep shining

Keep fightin
Every day of my life!!!

Verse 2:
Yes people gotta feel that vibe
Said It's up to you to decide
Make a change rearrange your life
No one else can do it for yourself so try
To realize what it's gonna take
to elevate
And open up your eyes
Gotta Get away
From all the lies
And the stress just to find
What's left from inside this mess they've designed
just to lead us all blind
And then leave us all behind
Misleading our minds
Never treating us kind
not reading the signs
So we fall into line
Time and time again
Up in this system

But I know we're gonna make it cause we're never givin in
Even though we're livin in
these harder days I'm gonna find my way so listen when I say that we can be the one's to come and make a change...
(Because)

Chorus:
We're Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on rising up
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on finding love
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on rising up
Never givin in
Never givin up
Yes you know I'll keep on fightin, keep on fightin
