Savage Savo is gearing as much as launch his Fresh Prince of Dancehall EP. However it’s greater than a musical venture, it’s a title he’s claiming within the ‘King-contentious’ house.
“Me nuh know if it’s an ego thing with me or what, but me consider myself one of the top runners in the business, if not the top runner,” he instructed THE WEEKEND STAR. “It’s all about promotion, though, but fi believe inna myself. Mi a di ‘fresh prince of dancehall’ because mi nuh see no other artiste out deh, otherwise from Vybz Kartel and a few others, weh a do the thing like me. So mi a claim it before anybody else try claim it and, if dem claim it, me and dem a go inna problems. Everybody a run down fi be the king, mi a seh prince.”
The title conundrum has seen Yellowman, Beenie Man and Vybz Kartel all calling themselves king of dancehall, whereas there are debates on whether or not Spice is the queen, regardless of Minister Marion Corridor ditching her Girl Noticed persona and turning to Christendom. Regardless of her identify being included within the dialog, Shenseea has typically mentioned she shouldn’t be and, as a substitute, aspires to cross over. Whereas the youthful technology appears disinterested in such titles, Savage Savo mentioned avoiding titles continues to be a type of categorisation.
“Mi really applaud her [Shenseea] because mi like fi see when artistes take the music pon a different level. So, whatever she a do work fi she, but everybody try different strategies,” he mentioned.
“Mi nuh see myself a do certain things fi gain public admiration or hype fi mek people a talk bout me. ‘Fresh prince of dancehall’ is something I know will raise eyebrows.”
The EP shall be launched on June 3 by way of his Savage Ent imprint. It would characteristic 5 tracks, together with Fresh Prince.
“That song has a more European bounce to it and mi a sing ’bout all the brands that people are going crazy over right now,” he mentioned, including that the track promotes dancing just like the ‘recent prince’ transfer, and carries an analogous tempo of Laa Lee’s Dust Bounce and Leggo Di Chicken.
“Mi have a next track called Lyrical Supernova which is going to create some waves also. Those two tracks don’t sound like any other song you’ve ever heard before, because mi change mi vocals completely.”
