    RSNY

    Reggae

    Emerging from the gritty streets of Far Rockaway NY, by way of small island of Jamaica, RSNY was born four friends who combined their individual talents into one musical mega-force. With a hunger and drive for success, coupled the determination to not fall victim to a community plagued with violence; where many of their peers seemed to meet a pre-determined faith of cell or cemetery, RSNY had a diversion; they set their sights on making their dreams a reality.
