Jamaican entertainer Bramma is known for his hardcore lyrics, but he has changed course with his soon-to-be-released reggae album.
The 14-track album has features from the likes of Luciano, Anthony B, Morgan Heritage, I-Octane, Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor and Zagga.
Handpicked by team
Executively produced by Riddim Force Records, the compilation boasts a stellar array of producers with contribution from Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor, Emanuel ‘German’ Schirmer, DJ Nicco, DJ Smurf, TouchPoint and Bramma’s GGOD Records.
“I want to do more music that has longevity.”— Bramma
Bramma said that the respective producers were handpicked by his team because he doesn’t want all his records to have a similar sound.
Despite being a hardcore dancehall artiste, Bramma said that the album is exclusively roots, rock, reggae.
Longevity and messages
“I am getting older now and that hardcore dancehall is all good, but I want to do more music that has longevity and messages that can educate and uplift the youths, which will improve the society on a whole. How would it look to see me as an artiste in my senior years performing this derogatory music for the kids? Understand, I will still do music for the streets, but that type of music is not appropriate for all audiences, and my ultimate aim, aside from being successful, is to be a well-rounded entertainer,” Bramma said.
“I am excited for my fans to hear this side of me because they will get to hear me addressing a lot of topics I generally don’t sing about like relationship, life struggles, heartache and some personal challenges”.
Although no official release date has been announced for the Rugged and Deadly album, Bramma said that it should be out before the end of the year.
