SINGJAY Lawgiver is going all out for the breakthrough with King's Son From Kingston, a recently released 21-song mixtape.

It features a duet with singer Half Pint called Working.

"This compilation captures everything that I have worked so hard for over the years of songwriting and performing," Lawgiver, told the Jamaica Observer.

The 34-year-old Rastafarian performer is also working on Roadside Network, a 16-track album he hopes to release this year.

Born Oneil Phoenix, in Kingston, Lawgiver grew up in St Mary, where he says he developed a passion for dancehall music.

After graduating from Islington High School, he returned to Kingston which offered greater opportunities for a budding entertainer.

"It was at Mixing Lab Studio that I met Bounty Killer, he was responsible for the single Bad Smell done on the Scare Dem label. At that time I went by the stage name Dyce Di Lawgiver," he said.

He has recorded for various labels including Fat Eyes Productions, Downsound Records, and Taxi Records.

He stresses that the message in his music has always been consistent.

"My aim is just to educate the people of the world through my songs.

I will never become the artiste who is filled with hype and do anything to get popularity," Lawgiver said.
