Drawing from his own life experiences, E-Reign has created his own style of hip hop, which is influenced by big names, but different enough to be truly unique. Like his main influences LL Cool J and NAS, E-Reign creates a vision with words; one that resonates with audiences and draws from life experiences. The result is a powerful sound that evokes thought, and is backed by a meaningful message.
West Hempstead, New York, August 17th, 2015 - Hailing from New York, Emile Lapaix Jr., stage name E-Reign has been cultivating his own lyrical art since age 10. Influenced by prolific hip hop artists of the 90s such as 2pac and NAS, E-Reign always admired their use words to communicate higher meaning, to create vision and influence listeners. It is this power with words that has established him as a key part of the future of New York-based hip hop music.

In 2013 E-Reign co-founded his own independent label by the name of ESM Entertainment along with his engineer K Roc. In only a short period of time, people began paying attention. In 2014, he received the Performance Artist of the Year award from Forbes Magazine and was featured in Hype Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly publications as well as being heard on numerous radio stations across the United States.
Since then, E-Reign has performed over 50 times across the east coast, maintaining strong ties in the Manhattan area. It is this drive and dedication that has allowed him to perform alongside prominent names in the New York underground such as DJ Kay Slay, Jae Millz, Jason Fox, and many others. His new single “Serious”, released on July 6, 2015 is his latest in E-Reign’s visionary sound, solidifying his place in the hip hop scene of New York.
