Mad Cobra ready to Flex for Reggae Sumfest
Mad Cobra is fired up about his performance at the 25th staging of Reggae Sumfest.
"I'll be bringing me. I'll be doing me ... bring people back to that nostalgic dancehall, hardcore ... at the same time aggressive, but clean," Cobra said.
The DJ, who was the first reggae artist to top the Billboard rap singles chart, will take his fans on a musical journey through his catalogue of massive hits such as Flex, which was a major crossover hit in 1992.
In recent years, Cobra has been quiet on the music scene following his experience with bouts of violence to both his person and his home. Following his full recovery, however, Mad Cobra has been back to work, creating new music, and is gaining ground on the music scene, earning him a spot on Night 2 of the Reggae Sumfest 25th year celebrations.
Following a 12-year hiatus, the artiste is looking forward to participating in this monumental staging of the festival.
"Well, it's a pleasure that's long overdue. I see it fit to come and represent," he said.
The artiste lauded the move Reggae Sumfest has taken to refocus the production on Jamaican music and talent.
"We must eat what we grow!"
Meanwhile, Cobra has issued a cautioned to young and eager persons who want to enter the world of Jamaican dancehall.
"It does not make sense to chase the limelight. It's wisest to just maintain your career.
"Once you do songs with substance, people will always love it. You don't have to be the headliner on a show to go and do your best."
