Who is Ryan McDermott? The speculation has been immense over the last couple of days, for all we know he is the latest signee and member of G.O.O.D Music/Island Def Jam family. Yes I repeat, Kanye’s record label G.O.O.D Music. Unfortunately the only confirmation we have of this is his Twitter bio @RyanMcDMusic and the fact that he has already been added on to the G.O.O.D Music artists section on Wikipedia.
But this still doesn’t answer our question. Who the hell is Ryan McDermott? His new promo video for his first single ‘Paradise’ doesn’t give us much of an idea regarding his identity. I guess Kanye West has kept things quite closely under wraps. We are, the good people at The Cypher that is, extremely excited to hear about future projects from Ryan McDermott and what he can deliver. Below you can watch the promo video for ‘Paradise’ as well as listen to the full single (which I think is brilliant. Either Kanye has found a Mr Hudson substitute or his very own ‘The Weeknd’)
