Rollie Fresh Drops new single, Featured

Rollie Fresh recorded a new single called What Is It earlier this week as he makes a genuine bid to shut down the Dancehall Game and shut the haters up. The young deejay who hails from Spanish Town is proving that he can flow bar to bar with the best of them and his latest song is already an underground sensation. In the meantime, his Wealthy video is in rotation on HYPE, RE and CVM Plus.

Rollie Fresh was born Dwayne Newby on March 23, 1985. He grew up in Spanish Town, St. Catherine with his grandparents and other relatives in the Featherbed Lane community in Spanish Town.

Going to primary school he was totally oblivious to the fact that he was destined to become an artiste. In fact, he was consumed by the possibility of being a mechanical engineer. But the siren call of music won out in the end. While attending high school, he slowly developed his song writing skills, and at grade nine, he began to delight his friends and family with his lyrical compositions. He showed his mic skills during impromptu lunchtime concerts with his friends who would beat the class desks in homage to slamming dancehall riddims.

"I would flow to the rhythm, and then I started going to studios to do demos and I began to improve," he said.

After graduating from high school, he began to focus on his musical career. Since then he has being trying to get the big breakthrough recording and has done songs with record labels such as Brukk Out Productions, Dragunzden of Antigua,
Heart of Love, House of Hits, Payday music and many more.

"I've got stronger both mentally and physically facing disappointment as an unsigned young artiste. Now I am ready to take my place in dancehall," he said.

Rollie has performed at events such as Sting 2009, Dela Splash, Fully Loaded and Galiday Bounce. But his stocks are about to rise with the release of this new video which is directed by the experienced and talented Nordia Rose. This video could well launch his career on a national level.

"The video is sick, but this is just the beginning so the public can look out for more singles from Rollie Fresh in the near future," he said.
