The Break Presents: Ryshon Jones

Breakout: “EVERfor”

Also Check: “Heroin For Breakfast”

And: “Date With Doubt”

Name: Ryshon Jones

Age: 20

Reppin’: Philadelphia

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Pink Floyd, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Beanie Sigel, Curren$y

I started rapping: When I was eight after my cousin gave me a beat mixtape from a car he broke into

My standout records and/or moments have been: “Date With Doubt” produced by Talen Ted which was recently played on Hot 97.5 Vegas and an A&R from Atlantic Records reached out to me giving me props on the record. Also my song “Heroin For Breakfast” produced by Danny Dee. I get a lot of feedback from that song and it’s my favorite song off my project. My standout moments have to be 2dopeboyz posting my tape, Joe Budden hearing my mixtape The Lower I Fall The Higher I Aim and liking it.

I’m gonna change the game by: Giving people more creativity and more than just music. A lot of people just look for good beats and they don’t pay attention to what the artist is doing.

My goal in hip-hop is: To tattoo my name on all of my peers brains ,and grab the souls of the listeners.

I’d Like to Work With: Coldplay, Kanye West, 9th Wonder, Radiohead, Pharrell, Adele.

I’m gonna be the next: Artist out of Philadelphia to prove that a dream doesn’t end unless you want it to.

  • Josh Paul

    My favorite track from Ryshon would have to be Somewhere In The Clouds… the original one not from Invisible Visibility that he gave me a link to. “Problems are like cellphones, everybody has them” was a hot line. This kid has the highest potential that I know. He needs a record label & assistance.

  • Nigel Powers

    I remember watching this dude with his CD player and his notebook sitting around after school writing rhymes. He came a long way, yet the journey has only begun.
