3Star is releasing yet another single off his current album “Nothing But Real Talk” for his fans eager for the artiste’s “reality music”. The album consists of anti-violence songs such as “No Bad Man” and “Mr Top Shoota”, conscious songs such as “Angel Voice” and “Sweet Momma” as well as a homage to his home country with “Sweet Jamaica”. “Nuff Things” deals with the artistes journey as a US soldier and his coming to terms with experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In interviews 3Star often speaks about his life’s journey from Jamaica to the US and from a soldier to being an artiste and college graduate. He often mentioned how music was the tool to deal with post-combat struggles. His lyrics were and are the outlet to voice what he has seen and been through and his music expresses his deep-felt emotions, thoughts and pains. Especially the death of his best friend encouraged 3Star to take his music serious and without his music 3Star would have had a harder time addressing the war, violence and death he has seen in combat in Iraq but also in a different form in his home Jamaica.
