Emerging act Q-Ban is delighted with the buzz he is getting since the release of his latest music video Fast Cash on the Mastermind Productions label.

The video features a short movie with a storyline of a young man coming into quick dollars by duping a dangerous drug dealer and the fallout that ensues from that action.

“I want to get my voice, my experiences, and tell my narrative. In 2017, I am coming with a different energy right now, mi ah come fi take my place in the Dancehall Game and I am in full creative control of my situation, so watch out world,” he continued.

Not signed to any label, he is using his own independent label, Mexicano Records, to release his future singles.

Born Carey Charlton, the 25-year-old Mandeville native, Q-Ban, has been trying his hand at music for over seven years but took a hiatus for a few years to achieve some professional goals before returning to do music full time.

“I have a passion, drive and love for music so I had to return to do it, and now I can do things on my own terms. I can invest in my own music and drive my own vision,” he said.
