Ryn Scott Teams Up With Flint Star Jon Connor For New Collab ‘I’m Free’
RYN SCOTT is a Michigan based Rap/Hip-Hop artist and writer born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI and now residing in Metro-Detroit. He recently teamed up with Flint star Jon Connor on the new collaboration “I’m Free”.
“The First time I met Jon was in 2011 when I made the drive to Grand Rapids where Jon was performing, hoping I’d get a chance to meet him and try to perform for him after the show” said the former Ryan Scott. During Connor’s set, Scott noticed Mateen Cleaves, Michigan State University basketball national champion, standing in the VIP section. Scott asked Cleaves if he could freestyle for Connor after the show, and Cleaves brought him down for a meeting. “I did my thing, but I don’t think it was good enough at the time to warrant any type of talk afterwards,” Scott said. “So after that, I told myself, I’m dedicating everything to my craft and one day I’ll have my artistry on pointe enough where I can work with somone like Jon Connor”.
With eight years of work, signing a production deal with Detroit producer Jake Bass and Bassment Sounds, he finally connected with Connor and sent him a track Scott and Bass had been working on.
“He loved the track, felt the vibe, and agreed to put a verse on it and collaborate on a video,” Scott said. “The rest was history”. The goal for our collaboration may sound cliche, but honestly it’s an anthem to set your heart free, take hold of your life and make it happen”.
Scott states: “I’m Free” is about not giving up, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and relentlessly pushing towards it until you’re finally free, he said. “Expect to be inspired. This track has an inspirational, positive, upbeat tempo and we did our best to deliver the verses to match that. It’s really a track that embodies the human spirit and the power of the journey. I hope it connects”.
Ryn showcases an unparalleled mix of musical talent as he uses harmony, rhythm, poetry, and story-telling to deliver a unique sound to his followers. Starting out with only a microphone and laptop, finding a way to connect and have a genuine impact on his listeners has become Ryn Scott’s sole purpose.
His last track “Blue Collar” also earned nation-wide recognition as it was featured on 98.7 AMP Radio/CBS Local. He recently signed with Detroit producer JAKE BASS at Boca J Music and together they’ve been recording new material. Since the collaboration, RYN SCOTT made it on the “I’m Kind of A Big Deal” Tour as an opener for Joyner Lucas at The Magic Stick (Detroit, MI), The Beacham (Orlando, FL), and The House of Blues (Boston, MA).
