The single,produced by Platinum Wire on the Falmouth Town rhythm, has been creating a big buzz in the west, signalling to the world that Teetz is ready to flip the Dancehall game on its ear.

"Anywhere it play, it get a forward because is a positive song on a bumpy fast-paced rhythm, it gi a nice vibes," he said.

He has a number of new singles, one of which is called Party, which he will be pushing this Summer, and another Life Goes On, on the Mind Change rhythm for well-known producer Anil 'Phantom' Montague.

He embraced music at an early age and has performed at places such has Margaritaville, Britjam Fantasy Island, Live on The Waterfront, Wakesfield Jerkfest, Jamfest and dozens of other.

He believes that he can swing the balance of power in dancehall from Kingston to Montego Bay through hard work, dedication and sick rhymes.

"The music business in Jamaica right now is dominated by the capital and soon, a son of the west will be representing," he said.

Teetz is also known as a successful entrepreneur, hosting several major entertainment events in Montego Bay. He has carved out a decent rep as a show promoter, especially with the wildly successful Half Naked series.

"Ah crazy events mi keep, and the ting ah shot, every three months, and in November, I keep a birthday bash that people look forward to, last year, ah 7000 people come Half Naked," he said.

Teetz is hell-bent on making it to the big times in music regardless of the obstacles which may come his way. "It is hard because the whole thing appears to be one-sided and the disc jocks will not give me the time of day, I am on a quest to tell my stories through music," he said. "It was a rough time but music got me through everything, music heal me and it keeps me going today," he said.
