Dancehall artiste Equipment knows what it is like to live under the whip of a 'dutty landlord' while wrestling with the twin tigers of high bills and low wages. He was so inspired by the pressures that he wrote a song called 'Mr. Landlord'.

 

"Trust me, it's hard, the light bill, the water bills, so the song was inspired by the pressures of life. I couldn't find the rent for a month and my landlord was pressuring me so I decided to put pen to paper and express my feelings," Equipment said.

 

The 'Mr. Landlord' song, produced by Lance 'Boko' B Wallace of the UK-based label Control Tower Squad, is making waves locally.

"The song is taking off and the amount of responses we are getting on Facebook is very positive, thousands of people love the song, and we are expecting big things when the song is released later this month. The song is also on the Landlord riddim that features top dancehall artiste Spice," Boko B said.

 

Equipment is pumped up about the public's response so far. 

"I did a viral video which we put it on Facebook. It has got over 500,000 views in four weeks on FB with a lot of comments, it ah damage the streets from yard to abroad... . I believe this song is a big tune," Equipment said.

 

Equipment, which is known for using brilliant metaphors and solid hooks in his song, is steadily building a reputation for himself as an artiste to watch.

 

"I have been getting great feedback with people texting me and asking me when is the official video, but I am working on the official release and then after that, the video is next," he said.

The song will be officially released via iTunes and other downloadable platforms later this month.

 

Born Keithon Tracey, on July 7, 1984, he hails from Cockburn Pen, St Andrew. A determined and talented artiste, Equipment wants to make an impact in the dancehall industry. "With each song, my fan base is getting much larger, people are contacting me from all over the world. The disc jocks and selectors are giving me great support now in the streets, so I am expecting big things in 2018," he said.
