Produced by UK-based label Control Tower Squad., the single will be released via iTunes and other downloadable platforms later this month.

“The song was inspired by the pressures of life. Everybody ah feel it, even the rich man ah feel the pinch, trust me. I couldn't find the rent for a month and my landlord was pressuring me like him waan stress me out a way, so mi decide to put pen to paper and express my feelings. Is a song every Jamaican can relate to,” said Equipment.

Mr Landlord is produced by Lance “Boko B” Wallace.

Equipment 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.
