About Reuben James Live
James was born in Baguio City and spent his childhood living in Manila surrounded by poverty before moving to Ireland at the age of six – despite not knowing word of English. The Irish-Filipino artist and BIMM student released his first single ‘If I Ruled The World’ back in 2014, followed by ‘The New Day’, featuring Shane Hennessy. James released ‘Taas Kamay’ in June 2020, premiered by Hot Press, before dropping ‘U Gonna Like This’ in the same year. Earlier in 2021, the rapper shared his latest hip-hop gem, ‘Bon Appetit’.
His latest offering showcase the confidence and raw talent that saw him recognised as raw talent by the A&R of Atlantic records two years ago. Incorporating creative backing synths with his honey-toned, mile-a-minute bars; the infectious track has an addictive nature. Impressively, James has performed at over 250 venues in Ireland. Here’s hoping he’ll return to the stage post-Covid in the coming months. – Hot Press
