Mavado, Dancehall’s baddest rising star, signs to VP Records
|It is official! Mavado, dancehall’s most talked about dee-jay, has signed a multiple album deal with VP Records. His first album entitled “Gangster For Life” is set to be released this July. Production credits include, Daseca, Stephen McGregor, TJ and Famous.
Neil ‘Diamond’ Edwards, VP Records A&R, said he is eager to work with such a talent. “Mavado represents the youths in the streets, so we are going to harness his unlimited raw potential to carry him to the next level. If you look beyond certain things, you can see it and he has yet to tap into even a quarter of his talent,” Edwards said.
According to Mavado’s manager, Julian Jones-Griffiths, “VP Records is committing a lot of marketing efforts in order to promote Mavado. The album will also be accompanied with a DVD which will take a look into the ‘gangsta’ world.”
