Prez recollects – “I remember as a youth I started out from humble beginnings in the country side, hiding from my mother after church on Saturdays so that I’d be able to go to the dance hall. She tried to punish me each time by not letting me into the house until day light or to by making me fill three big water drums from the standpipe down the road before she would let me eat or sleep. No punishment mattered to me, so she finally gave up and told me to do what I wanna do. I would ride on the back of the truck that transports the sound system to the dancehall on weekends through the 14 parishes of Jamaica as an MC. Without fail I would always end up chanting on the mic with steady, conscious and positive lyrics. Over the years I created a name and reputation for myself locally. Driven from then by the intention to entertain, inform and inspire, today I am an independent touring/recording artist delivering the same vibes, now mature and more accurate, creating a fan base internationally.”
