It may just be The Ultimate's time to shine. Horrified by the apocalyptic scenes of violence in West Kingston and the death of one of their own, Oneil Edwards, the dancehall community may be on the verge of a new dawn, rejecting gun worship and bling bling culture.

 

"It's too early to say that things are changing, but I am on a mission. I want my music to uplift the youth and take them in a positive direction, and the people are responding. People love the 'I Wish' song and then the dancehall community is rallying around 'Look Around You'," he said.

The premiere of Look Around You at the weekly Uptown Mondays session has been postponed because of the limited State of Emergency implemented by the Jamaican government.

Released almost two months ago, Look Around You is currently enjoying strong rotation on FM radio locally and is also getting strong support from several sound-system selectors in the dancehall. The song popped up on the RE TV reggae charts last week, debuting at #19, his first major hit song.

"The disc jockeys have begun to recognise me more, I am getting a lot of airplay on IRIE, and I have done premieres on HYPE TV, things are looking up, I am trying to get on stage shows and get my message out there," he said.
