CHECK THIS ARTIST GOES TO JAMAICA

BY CTA STAFF


Embarking on a business trip to Jamaica, and ignoring (just a little bit) all the amazing things the Island has to offer, including the beautiful beaches and food, isn’t easy. But our travel to unearth the next hottest unsigned hip-hop artist in the Island was fruitful. 
Our travel landed us in the Island’s capital, Kingston, where the bustling neighborhoods are no stranger to good music – or crime. In 2014, the city jumped up to the sixth highest murder rate for any city worldwide. The birthplace of Reggae superstars Buju Banton, Beenie Man, and none other than the legendary Bob Marley has pumped out many hitmakers through the years, making it the perfect place for us to start our digging. 

And we learned quite quickly it’s the struggle that churns out the smoothest beats. Within minutes after our arrival, the crew realized just how things get down in Kingston.  The rugged, but inviting city provided us quite the experience. The trip started off with a little hiccup when our cabbie’s car literally blew up as we waited to head off to our hotel. But, by chance, the cabbies friend, Winsome, ended up being the key to finding our hot artist. 

Winsome, a Kingston native with an ear for hip-hop music, hipped us to the area while she assumed the position of our tour guide. She took us to her friends beauty salon and there we got perspectives invaluable to our search before she got us over to our hotel. Two days later Winsome gave us a call and told us about a young artist by the name of FameStylez, whose music encompasses all aspects of the struggles, mystical beauty, and uniqueness of the island. Within hours we had FameStylez on the line and a couple hit records in tow. As a treat to our subscribers, we brought back a couple of his hits to the states.
