As a winger for storied English Premier League side, Liverpool, Jamaican-born footballer, Raheem Sterling has produced some flashes of his potential to become of the league's future stars. Now he is shifting to produce results in the music arena as he works on his on-field skills.


Sterling, 18, recently visited Jamaica on vacation, where he recorded up-and-coming deejays, The Rizing and Dotta Coppa for a soon-to-be released single, Young Ghetto Star. The single, produced under the Raheem Music label talks about Sterling's rise to the EPL from the inner-city community of Maverley, where the Liverpool player grew up. It will be released through digital music stores at the end of March.

"As long as the music that they are doing is good music, I will endorse it,” Sterling told the Jamaica STAR. “I have good followers on my Twitter account, so I will also promote songs from my label through that. I am from Maverley and I will help others if I can."

The Rizing told fans of what they can expect from Young Ghetto Star.

"This (song) is basically telling others that they can be what they want to be but they have to work hard at it and maybe they can be like the next Sterling,” he said. “Same way wi a put in hard work in our music and will someday be household names.”

The young artist met Sterling through his stepfather in Maverley and says he is a down-to-earth character.

"Is a youth wey love people and yuh can talk to him at all times. Once yuh recognize him, yuh can approach him because dem man deh nuh hype pon people,” he told the STAR. “Plus, he is a future youth meaning that him care bout people future and him look out for others, suh a whol' heap more things a guh come from this."

He continued, "I hang out at Maverley a lot and that is how we finally met and wi chat and par and guh clubs because dem man deh love party to, a real youth man.”

In his second season for Liverpool, Sterling has had his moments with the 'Reds,' scoring two goals and two assists in 23 EPL games. However, reports in England suggest that the teenager could be loaned out to an English Championship club for next season.

Sterling passed on joining the Reggae Boyz last year in favor of playing for his adopted country of England, where he has lived since he was five years old. He earned one cap for the Three Lions in a 4-2 friendly defeat against Sweden.
