Intence eyes stardom
Tashawn Gabbidon, aka Intence, has been making a mark for himself in the dancehall arena.
Just 21 years old and in the business for a mere five years, he has been getting much attention from fans and media practitioners locally.
The Boysie Records-signed artiste has three songs that have the potential to catapult his career to the next level.
"I have three singles out, One Pants, Jet Life, and Do Weh You Like, and all are currently doing well. I believe this year is my year to shine and I'm prepared to go the extra mile for me and my team to be successful," Intence told THE STAR in a recent interview. The songs have been given good rotation on local radio.
"Right now, the selectors representing for the streets like DJ Ruxie from CD Fantasy, DJ Banka, and Boom Boom have played my songs at various events and the feedback has been good," he said. "'Jet Life in particular speaks of the typical ghetto youth who get a 'buss' and start to take plane regularly and have flashy cars, pretty girls and all the hype that comes with stardom."
The Mona High School graduate said he grew up listening to the lyrical content of General Degree, Bounty Killer and Shabba Ranks.
Over the next few years, Intence hopes to build a solid name in Jamaica and overseas.
"I would love to do some overseas shows and voice for some top producers, that's my intention right now," said the artiste.
