As a second string member of the Harlem outfit the Diplomats, JR Writer attempts to crawl out of the shadows of key members Cam'ron, Jim Jones, and Juelz Santana with his latest mix-tape titled "Writers Block 3."
JR was first featured on the song "Shake" off Cam’ron’s album "Purple Haze" but hasn't been featured on any of the bigger Diplomat bangers. His flow is a combination of Cam'ron (without the wittiness), Cassidy (with less punch lines), and Freeway (without the intensity or charisma). Lyrically JR is nasty with the punch lines, but his content doesn't stray far from the tough talk of the average upcoming NYC rapper - which wears thin after about 3 songs.
Unless you've been living under a rock these past few months you already know the Dip-Set have declared war against Jay-Z and his Rocafella label, as well as Mase and G-Unit. JR Writer proves he's a loyal soldier going at his bosses adversaries on the song "Serious Business." "You weirdo’s are weak, who you gonna send at us? Tierra and Bleek" the whole track then stops while JR laughs at the notion of battling Memphis Bleek. JR then tells G-Unit to "Change your name to Ninja Turtles, your leader is a rat," on the song "Suit Up." Unfortunately these two tracks are the only highlights on the mix-tape, as his attempts to cover T.I.'s "What You Know" and Rick Ross's "Hustling" are horrible, and it’s evident when you hear JR alongside a major artist like Slim Thug that he doesn't have a commanding flow or charisma to compete with today’s elite artist.
Definitely an upcoming rapper to look out for in the future, JR Writer is part of the not ready for primetime players rapping in New York and has some work to do. Hopefully he’ll see more mainstream light if he’s featured on Cam’ron’s delayed album "Killa Season. "
