Jamaican reggae crooner Jah Cure release an official Statement last week:
It’s time… I am elevating my career to the international professional level it deserves so that I can be another example to the world of a progressive Jamaican artiste who is ‘strictly professional’ but not offensive. It’s time to show respect for artiste’s record labels and the contracts they’ve signed and not allow producers to flood the market with too many tunes from the same artiste or with a million songs on a single ‘riddim. It’s time to respect Intellectual Property Rights and allow artistes, writers, musicians and producers to have a fair piece of the pie in an organized industry and not behave like crabs in a barrel. It’s time to understand that if an Artiste records a few songs for a few select producers, it’s no disrespect to his other producer friends, it’s just that artistes have a recording contract to honor and a record company that he cannot afford to disregard.
Let’s keep making great music while giving excellent recordings a chance to breathe and grow on the listening public. Let’s go for quality instead of quantity in the industry and set a standard with reggae music for the world to once again follow. Having said this….if you ask me to record for you and I respectfully decline…don’t hold it against me…we are simply keeping it professional and if all goes well, someday soon it will be … YOUR TIME
My new album titled, ‘WORLD CRY’ is COMING SOON
