Guyana-based artiste looks to Ja for musical growth
Guyana-based dancehall artiste Dead Li is in Jamaica working on his craft.
According to the artiste, he wants to immerse himself in dancehall's authentic culture so as to become a real product of the genre.
"I am a dancehall and reggae artiste and I love this music so much. I am here to become music itself because I believe I was chosen for this because I am inspired by everything in life," he told THE STAR.
Dead Li is now promoting a single titled Caribbean Girls, which he hopes will blow up in Jamaica.
"It's a big hit in Guyana, America and some Caribbean countries. I also have other songs like Donald Trump Yu Gyal, Fall In Love, Bare Situation and Red Eyes," he said.
The artiste hopes Caribbean Girls will eventually become his breakout single. The record was produced by J Lyrics under Code Red Records.
"We have a good working chemistry and every song feels like a hit thus far. Other artistes have been reaching out for me to write for them and more producers want to work with me now ... I have also been getting support from my fan base who have been buying Caribbean Girls online, and I am very happy about that," he said.
He also name-dropped Dennis Brown, John Holt, Yellow Man, Professor Nuts among other artistes who influenced his musical creative process.
