YESTERDAY Venomus released the official video for Rise Again, which features Jahvante via It is expected to be available for cable TV next week.

The single has been generating major airplay over the past two months and this video is expected to give the song a major boost. Rise Again is on the Sasaine Music label and was released in April.

“Rise Again is one of the hottest reggae songs in rotation in Jamaica right now. Team Shella, Hotta Ball, DJ Banka, Fyah Bigs, Boom Boom, CD Fantasy, the streets ah support the song and the radio ah bun up. It's a great look,” said the reggae singer.

The buzz in the streets landed him a spot on the Pepsi Refresh tour, and he had several well-received performances on the concert series.

Venomus (given name Ishmael Thompson) first came to attention years ago for his work on the popular One Drop single. He is currently promoting the single Complicated, which was released on the Dejavu Label in March.

He is currently working on his debut album, Complicated, slated to be released early next year.

Venomus grew up in the inner-city community of Waterhouse. His passion for music started at an early age as he played the drums in church. He lists Bob Marley and Sizzla Kalonji as his biggest musical influences.
