His life took a turn when he performed on the Detroit underground hip hop and rap scene. In 2014, City released his first track – Grindin’.
Releasing “PIZZA PIZZA”

Fighting for the chance to rap
During the initial days, Mason did not gain much popularity. He devoted his heart and soul into one thing, and that is music. Mason started rapping at a very young age with one of his school friends. He often used to bunk classes and go for practices for the rap battle. Later in 2015, Mason released one more single – Salmonella. This album made him M City J.R. from Mason. On weekends, City would participate in open mic contests at the Hip-Hop Shop.
M City J.R. would write and practise his rhymes with rage and purpose. He was so determined and passionate about music that he even used to rap about things. With no success for around a decade, City was at an all-time low. His First track – Grindin’, was not a hit. All he needed was a little push and confidence. Soon he made his way in “10 Detroit artists you should know in 2015.” Eventually, he started gaining fame and recognition.
His acclaimed album – “Addicted to My Ex.”
