Home Town Hero (Remastered)

Home Town Hero (Remastered)

Personal message

My Stage name is Emjay Styles. I started writing music in 2009 and only went to the studio to record my first Song in 2014.

In 2017 I went back to the studio to record my second single titled“Keep it On”.later that year I went to release a 10 Song Mixtape titled Home Town Hero. with the little that I had then, I was hustling to get money for studio time and for Artwork designs.

The Mixtape was not best in production but I went on to take it out for free, which was the best move I did at that time. People were happy about the type of sound that I make and the storytelling behind each song “I relate to that song” each fan selecting a specific song in the Mixtape. Not all of us are Trap Hip Hop Fans but even Trap sound fans do listen to “j cole”, said by a fan.

My style of music is a combination of storytelling (conscious Rap) with soul trap sound. The SA hip-hop industry is restricted to one style of hip-hop, I believe that there’s a gap in the SA hip-hop industry and I’m there to exploit it.

You can listen to my music here.
