Amon Re The 8th Sign

Amon Re The 8th Sign - born Jermaine Price - is a Forest City, North Carolina rapper who has spent the last several years perfecting his craft at his homebase in Chicago, Illinois. Averse to labels, he prefers to refer to himself as a “conscious” artist who uses his emotional acuity and skill for empathy to become a vessel for people’s struggles with self, society, or life in general.

Having recently wrapped up his 5-track EP Let Us Pray, Amon Re is ready to release the material he’s been sitting on since 2015. “I just wasn’t in a good place with music mentally,” he explains. Mixed and mastered by Marsten House Recording’s Steve Sxacks in Philadelphia, the EP is buoyed with a lead single in the form of its title track, which will be followed up by “Lonely People,” which he describes as “my my personal feelings of loneliness and how society is a bunch of lonely people looking for a connection through social media without actually connecting with another human.” Amon Re is also working on New Strange Fruit, a collaborative project with Italian producer Dirty Meth Dopamina, slated for an imminent release on all major streaming and b
