THROUGH his day job is in the correctional services, Tyrone Morrison is trying to break into the music business as deejay Kantexxx.
To date, Kantexxx has released three songs: Pon D Bamboo, Gwaan So and Miss Kitty.
“My first single (Pon Di Bamboo) was released during the last quarter of last year. However, like most aspiring artists, it didn’t get the airplay I desired,” said the 23-year-old Kantexxx.
The confident Kantexx is from St Thomas. He says he knew his first love was music since he was a student at Buff Bay High School in Portland.
“During the days, I would eagerly wait until there is a session break to beat the desks and catch up on my deejaying skills,” he recalled.
For the past three years, Kantexxx has been a correctional officer but says he is hoping to hit the big time by collaborating with a high-profile artist.
“I believe that I have some talent for songwriting that is accompanied by peerless vocals, so very soon I will be capturing the hearts of dancehall/reggae fans worldwide,” he said.
