180 Caliba Records recording artiste JB Legend is no ordinary dancehall artiste. Even though he was born in Jamaica, he speaks four languages: Dutch, Spanish, English and Papimento (dialect spoken in Aruba), and he has the kind of voice destined to impress millions all over the world.  
He has been getting a buzz for the single, 'Dream Girl', released on the 180 Caliba Records. The single is also available online via the 180 Caliba Records website. 
Born Jermaine Norlando Nugent, he started singing music when he was four years old while living in Portmore. His legend soon grew in his community for his talent. However, because of crushing poverty, he and his mother migrated to Aruba, where he attended ECB Sanicolas High school and College. 
He started recording music at age 14 while attending high school in Aruba.

"I used to sing a Buju Banton at stage shows in Aruba, and people were impressed, and that's when they started calling me 'Buju' but my given name is Jermaine so they combined the two and my friends started calling me JB, then when they heard me record, my friends say 'no man yu a legend how you deal wid the track so?' and I  became JB legend one shot from that moment ," he explained. 
While living in Aruba, he made the most of his time there to elevate his mind and fine-tune craft.
"I was living in Aruba, yes, Aruba due to hard life in Jamaica, I grew up in terrible poverty in Portmore. But while in Aruba, I learned several languages, I have returned to Jamaica to pursue my dream of becoming an artiste," he said.
In Aruba, he won several freestyle battles all over the island at music events, but he always felt something was missing.
"I returned to Jamaica because I am determined to find my birth right. I came back, as a legend, to spread my legacy. Jamaica land we love is what my heart was missing to inspire me to write the best songs," he said.
