Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) April 28, 2014 -- The singer, rapper and songwriter from Jamaica known as Collage has released his latest single, "Kingston Killers." The track is the most significant official single from Collage to date. It has been released on the Castle Productions music label. Positively and proudly nationalist in its themes, energetic and powerful in its rhythm and groove, "Kingston Killers" showcases Collage as one of the Caribbean's most creative and hardworking rappers.
Collage cites as main artistic influences Lil' Wayne, as well as fellow Jamaican musician, Vybz Kartel.
"I admire Vybz Kartel for his creative style of writing," he writes.
Not unlike Kartel, Collage spends an enormous amount of time penning rap songs with cutting, thoughtful lyrics. "Kingston Killers," in particular, is a song with much of Collage's heart in its themes and overall meaning.
"For this single," Collage writes, "the essence really is that I am passionate about my community and my country Jamaica at large. Therefore I will be willing to defend my country if the needs arise, and in the song I am inviting others to the same, and to rekindle that passion in their hearts for their country. I am not just referring to going to war like a solider, but also to be the best they can be and make a meaningful contribution to their country according to their area of expertise."
Collage has been writing, performing and competing in rap since the 9th grade.
"I started getting involved in music back in school when I used to watch '106 and Park' and 'Freestyle Friday.'" Collage writes. "I watched BET a lot back then. That's when I started to write my own rap."
His first moniker was Casino, which he changed to Collage upon signing with the Castle Productions music label in 2012, with which company he has been working ever since. His official debut studio LP record album is in the works.
"Kingston Killers" by Collage is available online worldwide.
