BESIDES putting together songs for a mixtape, dancehall artiste Tommy Lee says he is looking forward to gigs in Europe and the Caribbean this month.
The mixtape is scheduled to be released this summer and will feature songs for different labels. "I'm really happy with the direction my career is heading cause I have placed my all into it," Lee told Jamaica Observer. "I am a freshman in the game, so there is lots more for me to learn."
Lee, whose real name is Leroy Russell, says although he has not been on the dancehall circuit a long time, he believes the music is alive and booming. "There is a new breed of dancehall acts now who are bringing their ideas to the game, therefore some persons need to adjust to the changes," he said. "With every generation comes new ideas and trends."
Lee, 23, hails from the tough Flankers community in St James. He emerged in 2010 as a member of Vybz Kartel's controversial Portmore Empire, and is best known for songs such as Holding Out The Pressure, Some Bwoy Warn Dem, and Psyco.
