After landing a collaboration with Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj this summer on the track Likkle Miss, dancehall artiste Skeng is keeping the momentum with the discharge of his debut EP on Friday.
The six-track set, titled Beast of the Era, boasts credits from 4 producers. Rvssian is credited for It’s True (which features Shenseea) and Thug Life, while John Coop worked on New Era and Highway. Demons Awake is produced by Ditruth and Eediattt (featuring Jigsta) produced by Droptop Records.
Skeng’s team hosted a launch party at 33 Constant Spring Road in Kingston on Thursday night. Nonetheless, it led to disappointment after eager fans only graced their eyes on the entertainer for roughly five minutes.
In keeping with a previous report by the Jamaica Observer, the host, Neisha-Yen Jones delivered a half-hearted apology on behalf of the entertainer to the scores of patrons who showed up.
The entertainer, who was said to be ailing, blamed his inability to perform on a change within the weather despite clear conditions.
The deejay signed a publishing take care of Jon Baker, principal of Gee Street Records and owner of Geejam recording studios, in July. The small print of the deal weren’t made public; nevertheless, Baker said the move was in line with his thrust for 2022 which is to restart developing music projects and releasing projects under the Gee Street and Geejam labels.
Skeng’s other hits include Protocol, Heaven Passport (with Intence), Gunman Shift, London, and Street Cred.
