STILL riding high from his most recent single Gnarly, dancehall/reggae artiste Rasqo has dropped the follow-up single entitled Nuh Fren from Dem.

The inescapable tune was produced by Nikolas 'Sniggy' Silvera for Head Concussion Records.

According to Rasco, the song Nuh Fren From Dem was inspired by a real-life experience.

"I had a former friend who turned out to be one of my worst enemies, so that's really where the idea for the song came from," Rasqo explained in a release to the media.

Rasqo is upbeat about the new single. The track has been getting a lot of views on YouTube and the feedback from the public has been positive.

"Everyone can relate to the story in one way or another. The feedback has been really good and the fans seem to love it," Rasqo pointed out.

His previous single Gnarly is currently a hot track on the dancehall scene in Costa Rica. The artiste is looking forward to his upcoming performance there to connect with fans.

He recently altered the spelling of his name. The change, he said, reflects a different artiste who is ready to launch an attack on the musical radar.

"The Q in Rasqo represents change. The Rasco with the 'C' was a cool calm person. The Rasqo with the 'Q' ready to launch the attack. You would think I was born in Iraq," he said jokingly.

The artiste, who says he is bringing reality to the game, has evolved over the past year. This is evident in the material that he has been releasing over the past few months.

"I put all my fears behind me. Mi naw hesitate. Time fi di market get penetrate," he confided.
