Fast rising Hawaiian based recording artist J Boog is currently in Jamaica working on a sizzling hot reggae collaboration alongside roots singers Richie Spice at Big Yard Studios located in Kingston.
With the guidance of Morgan Heritage member Gramps and veteran singer/songwriter Yami Bolo* both Boog and Spice joined forces musically to create the still untitled single which according to Boog was inspired after he visited a certain garrison community. “Well I’ve been here for a week now and during my stay I got a chance to go out by Trench Town, there I saw the struggle of the people and that motivated me to do a song. I was born and raised in Long Beach California but from there I moved to Compton so I know what real struggle feels like”.
J Boog who burst onto the Hawaiian music scenes in 2007 thanks to a chance meeting with the tropical islands biggest superstar “Fiji” stated that he has always wanted to visit the birthplace of reggae but only recent got the opportunity. “Our music in Hawaii is pretty similar to reggae music, in fact we call it Island music or Island reggae so since I began singing I’ve always dreamed of coming to Jamaica to experience the local culture”.
Looking to make his mark in theÃ‚Â nternational mainstream J Boog is confident the world will soon hear his calling. “I am a high energy artist, I make good music and put my blood, sweat and tears into every record, island artists haven’t been getting the recognition we deserve but we not going to stop pushing”.
