Rice – New Jack


Rice is the professional name of emerging independent hip-hop artist, producer, and label-owner Jerard Rice. Over the last four years, he and his brother M-Ezy have released a string of popular singles via their Hustle Work Grind record label. Regular readers of The Static Dive will remember recent singles like this summer’s “Starz”, released on a compilation album from the World Beat Project 

A native of Webster, Massachusetts, Rice is a multi-talented singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer who pairs modern hip-hop beats with uplifting lyrics about love and personal responsibility.  He views music as a great unifying force, and as a tool for education, empowerment, and empathy. He has clocked over a million streams on Spotify thanks to popular tracks like “Juice” and “No Brady.”

“New Jack ” is the brand new single from Rice, released worldwide via all major streaming services on September 21, 2023. The track opens on a mix of synths and percussive arpeggios before the beat drops on a slow and low trap groove. The rapper steps to the mic with an inspirational rhyme about breaking free from the trap (in this case, an unfulfilling job).

"New Jack" is about growth and acceptance within one’s self , the confidence to break out of the confines of things and people that get in the way of your goals.
