Today, 5th November, Jamaican Reggae/Danchall star DON SCRUE releases 4 track EP ‘King of New York’.
The project is a testament to Don Scrue’s ability to effortlessly intermix Dancehall, Reggae, and Hip Hop elements, taking listeners on a sonic ride reflective of his musical palette.
Aiming for chart success, DON SCRUE wants to break into global markets and is aiming for the top with his ‘King Of New York’ EP. The artiste who has been featured in the Jamaican Observer and Ameyaw Debrah, offers themes of hood credibility, struggles, self-reflection, and self-belief along the way.
‘King of New York’ stems off the back of his last EP ‘Sensual Gratification’ which enjoyed trans-continental success.
On ‘Vibe’, Scrue assures you that he and his gang “bring the vibe” wherever they pull up. ‘Fast Cash’ is an epistle about the insatiable desire to make money. He talks about the urge to make more mulla to level in the society and how more money leads to more problems.
Scrue channels new energies into ‘Effortless’ as he boasts about his prowess in easily getting the girls that tickle his fancy. ‘Bad Blood’ takes a deeper look into the activities that take place in the hood. The hood clashes and tussles for supremacy.
Production credits for the four tracks go to Studio 91 Records. Speaking on the EP, Don Scrue says:
“I felt like it was time for me to put out another body of work, my last EP (Sensual Gratification) was released a year ago and it performed very well, so basically what I am trying to say is that I was inspired by my previous project. I have always been self-motivated this is what keeps me going.”
