Emerging Jamaican artist, Boss Minion is looking to run the rule over Dancehall in 2014 as he hopes to make a profound impact with the lyrical content and diversity that make his songs worth listening.
Last year, the Trelawny-born singer made his mark with songs such a Dope Is No Game and Fed Treatment, showcasing socially-conscious content that the local airwaves embraced and offered a look into the potential he has as a promising Reggae talent. Now, Boss Minion is looking to capture more eyes and ears with his new single, That’s Who I Am, a song he calls an anthem for those working low-paying jobs while dealing with the continuously growing cost of living.
“The reason why I came up with that song in particular is, I see the suffering, and I want to do my part as a reggae artiste to spread to spread the word to the people and let them know that Boss Minion does care and feels what they're going through,” he told Examiner.com on Thursday. “I want to be their voice for the ones who cannot speak for themselves. Everybody that heard this song here in Jamaica and all over the world has shown great love for the song.”
He has been very busy on his road towards mainstream stardom; performing a series of local shows, most recently, the Hague Agricultural Show in Falmouth on Ash Wednesday (March 5). Additionally, Boss Minion will be releasing a slew of videos in the coming weeks for singles such as Babylon vs. Rudebwoy, which will be unveiled this weekend, Nuff Man Pocket Is Big and the aforementioned That’s Who I Am.
“These videos will give people a chance to identify with the songs and what the struggle is all about,” he said. “It’s a step in the right direction to let my fans see a different side of Boss Minion. I also currently have two interviews posted on YouTube that fans can view. I got an interview called, Boss Minion Greatest Interview and, Special Mix interview - Boss Minion, with English Pound Radio in Canada.”
He also has launched his new label, Boss Minion Entertainment, working in conjunction with his other label, Tymin Entertainment, managed by John Tyson. He will release songs under both labels that he promises fans will ‘love greatly.
Boss Minion describes his talent as God-given, insisting he does not do music for self-gratification, but for the good of the people.
“When I go to bed at night, I always ask God to bless me with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to write the best lyrics that will benefit the people, not Boss Minion,” he said. “My style is versatile, and I write my songs with care and attention to bring quality to the people. I do not promote violence in my songs, just awareness, solution, peace, love, and unity, that's what it’s all about.”
