"It's a situation that's all too familiar for some fathers, but this one was inspired by my own experience. Everything I have and do is for the benefit of my child, and as parents, we have to ensure that we are there for our children not only in a monetary sense, but also for their development. Once I heard the riddim, I literally put my thoughts and feelings to paper, and this was the heartfelt result," said D-Medz.
Produced by Rural Productions, the track has been enjoying heavy rotation on local airwaves and boasts upcoming plans for a video.
"We shot the video earlier this month, so that's going to give the song even further traction locally and, hopefully, internationally. It was directed by Eucal Pinnock and has a very cool concept that paired perfectly with the track. I'm definitely anticipating its release later this month," said D-Medz.
In addition to promotion for Baby Mama Drama and his upcoming video release, the reggae act, who is signed to EppJam Productions, has been logging extra studio hours to produce more "quality and positive" material.
"As a young artiste, it's a lot of work, and I'm constantly working and honing my craft - songwriting and recording. I believe in positive music, so whether I mix my style with a little dancehall or rock-steady, it's always going to be clean and positive music," he said.
And it's hard work with rewards. His previous efforts, Road Tonight and Life Sweet from his seven-track EP titledRoad Tonight, as well as Rebel Soul Jah, have been getting steady airplay not only on local radio, but also in Africa, Europe, the United States, and England.
Hailing from Clarendon, the home of reggae greats like Freddie McGregor and Cocoa Tea, D-Medz, who has been in the business just shy of a decade, is exclusively managed by EppJam Productions.
