It’s no wonder that JD Era is the Toronto rapper most endorsed by the Wu Tang Clan. His newly released track, Wu Tang Forever, pays homage to the Clan in the most respectful and appropriate way possible – by annihilating a beat with lyrics and wordplay that could only be inspired by the pioneers of the game.
Like most rappers out there, Wu Tang has ignited his drive in the game – but, unlike many other rappers out there, JD Era was hand picked by the Clan. In 2012, he was signed to Raekwon’s newly formed indie imprint, Ice H20 Records. Not only has he collaborated with Raekwon on several projects, but he’s performed alongside and done tracks with Ghostface Killah, RZA, GZA, Method Man, as well as Drake, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, and many more.
In 2013, JD Era saw incredible success with a Juno Nomination for his mixtape “No Handouts”. It’s only fitting to end 2013 with a bang, by hitting up a 7 stop “Do You Know Mary” tour in December. His Wu Tang Forever track is a prelude to the release and video of his new single “Do You Know Mary”.
