Dancehall artist Beenie Man is now focused on building his ‘management portfolio’ and has signed upcoming US rapper J Gunn to his MD Music label. Gunn is the first overseas-based artiste signed by the dancehall star.
The ‘Girls Dem Sugar’ artist thinks he can take this artiste to another level in the business.
J Gunn is featured on the remix of Beenie Man’s recent chart topper, We Run Roa and the connection came about after he came to Jamaica to perform at DJ Kurt Riley’s party in Christiana, Manchester.
The two again hooked up when Beenie Man toured Europe there J Gunn served as his opening act.
Born Joshua Gunn, the rapper has been a fixture on the North Carolina hip hop scene for more than 15 years. He has shared stages with top acts including Public Enemy, the Fugees, Trey Songz, Cypress Hill and Young Jeezy, among others.
