Master Bling makes second push into music industry
Montego Bay-based deejay Master Bling knows that hype means nothing and that talent and hard work are the only recipes for long-term success in the music industry.
"I just care about making great music, I am putting in the hours to become great at what I do because this is my approach to life: hard work and dedication," he said.
This young deejay is part of a new wave of Montego Bay artistes who are making a mark in dancehall. Master Bling has been getting a lot of positive airplay in recent weeks for his latest single, Gallis, on the Cannon Ball rhythm.
This is Master Bling's second push in the music industry. Years ago, when he first entered the dancehall game, his stage name was Mr Bling. "I used to beat desk in primary school and sing all of Bounty Killer songs. Then, when I left school, I got a link with Jigsy King from 2000, and he is still my big brother in the music," he said.
He migrated to The Bahamas but returned in 2007 to find that another artiste had been using the 'Mr Bling' moniker. Now, he has turned his attention back to his first love, music.
"I put all my focus on building a successful business, but I always loved music and I continued to write songs over the years. And now, I am ready to take it on fulltime," he said.
