Tommy Lee Sparta to Headline Sting 2012

The lucky seven that are already signed for the Jamworld explosion include now rivals, Tommy Lee Sparta and Bounty Killa.  Tommy Lee Sparta out of respect initially steered away from a confrontation with the Killa.  This week’s new release, “Nyammy Lee” has pushed Uncle Demon back into war mode.  In an interview with The Weekend Star the Spartan King said,
“Why me can’t be a demon, why me can’t be that character.  Killa can’t study me, him can’t drain mi energy.  This morning mi wake up see new song name Nyammy Lee.  A who him a call so?  Mi huh fear him, that a mash potato and bully beef.  Anything a anything over Sting!”

Sting With A Difference – Supreme Promotions Banks On Young Reggae Acts

STING 2012 this year will have something a little different – young reggae acts.  The event’s promoters are hoping the difference will create the best Sting in the outing’s 29-year history.
In collaboration with DownSound Records, Sting will have a segment called Four The Hard Way, where rising stars Chronixx, Droop Lion, Jahsent and Iba Mahr will be the featured acts.  According to Supreme’s CEO, Isaiah Laing, “These four young men we predict to be the next big names of reggae, just wait and see. We have been doing this for years and have an eye for spotting true talent.”
Chronixx, given name Jamar McNaughton, has been steadily making progress with his career. This month sees the young musician embarking on his first overseas tour with performances for South America, Europe and California. His popularity internationally appears to have arrived more quickly than local interest has been able to keep pace with.
Kenya and Sweden have embraced the singer as his track, ‘Behind The Curtains’, is a hit there. With his music being heard more frequently now on Jamaican airwaves, his songs ‘Beat and A Mic,’ ‘Warrior,’ ‘Rain Music’ and ‘Odd Ras’ have all gained recognition, expanding his growing hometown fan-base.
