Music Dealers Artist Spotlight: JDPPosted on Tuesday, September 8th, 2009
After a long weekend I'm back at it. Another week, another featured artist to fill your headphones with. I was not trying to feature any rappers just because these days it seems rap is going extinct with good artists, but after listening to JDP I had to let yall know about him. It looks like Chicago, once again, is about to produce another big rapper. What a good feeling. His style is refreshing, different, doesn't get old. I think 2009-2010 is going to be pretty big for JDP - be on the lookout.
His mixtape, Aid Raid is being sponsored by the LA clothing company IM KING. This mixtape is solid. Great production, a lot of features and is a good listen. JDP describes this mixtape as the "official" introduction to who JDP is as well as his music.

JDP's success began while still attending Columbia College Chicago. In 2006 JDP formed Flyy City Media Group with partner Jay Torres, and found success performing with major recording acts such as Rich Boy, Shawnna, Cap-1, GLC, Yung Joc & HotStylez, The Cool Kids and Gemini.
Below is the official video for his song "Styrofoam Cups." This song has gotten pretty good rotation on Chicago's biggest radio stations, WGCI, where JDP was also the featured artist of April 2009. Check out this song. It could definitely be a radio hit.
