Jay Ronic Drops a 'Movie' for New Single 3am

Jay Ronic dropped '3am' on March 19th.

Originally, from Congo RDC, Jay Ronic, also known as 'The Fresh Prince of Cork' is an all-round entertainer, rapper and

personality. In 2018, Ronic began to dabble in music with his remix of Mr Eazi’s track, Leg Over. He then became serious with music in 2019, releasing his debut EP, 'The Fresh Prince of Cork'. While being a very versatile artist, Ronic has shown his capabilities across multiple genres including; Trap, Drill and Afroswing. He has a unique approach to his

projects, leading everything to be a fresh, new idea.

“My Mam ran into my room thinking I was getting attacked because of all the gun adlibs”.

Throughout the track, Ronic gives nod to fellow DBN artist, Dubzeno who was locked up at the time, stating “Free Him”. The song features multiple play on words and emits the right type of ‘hype’ people would need if they were still partying

at 3am.
