M-City J.R. Signs To Atlantic Records


Congrats are in order to our Detroit homie M-City J.R., who just inked a deal with Atlantic Records.  J.R. made the partnership official at Hot 107.5’s #SummerJamz in Detroit this past weekend, when he took to the stage to officially ink in front of the packed house.

As you know, J.R.’s hit “Addicted To My Ex,” has been bubbling in Detroit for a minute, and been a mainstay on our radio show The Drive on Shade 45 for months, and is rapidly climbing up the iTunes rap charts. It’s taking off.

You can expect Atlantic to add the gasoline to the fire, and give “Addicted To My Ex” the extra push that it needs. Hopefully this song is everywhere soon, as it should be.

Again, a big congrats to M-City J.R. Looking forward to watching him take flight.

Missed it? Shame on you. No need to worry though, because you can listen to the mix here on FSD right now.

Listen to the mix below, and be sure to tune into The Drive on Shade 45 each and every Sunday night at 11pm CST. Also included below is The Drive Top 5, which are our five favorite songs played during Ty’s set.
