From Kingston Jamaica, to Jamaica Queens, the platinum certified iNi Kamoze has carved out a rep, blending politically conscious lyrics with undeniably infectious hooks. The proclaimed Hotstepper is the master of mixing reggae’s sensuality with hip-hop excitement, from the genuinely potent boastin’ and toastin’ rude boy anthem "Hotter This Year" to the explosive No.1 Billboard smash, "Here Comes The Hotstepper".
iNi Kamoze has galvanized audiences around the globe with his charismatic presence and fetching delivery.With his ever fresh trademark "hey, hey", Kamoze has burned a few movie and television soundtracks, vis. Bad Boys, Good To Go, Pret-A-Porter (Ready To Wear), New York Undercover, The Bernie Mac Show; and worked with some premier artists and producers in hip-hop and reggae, vis. Jermaine Duprie, Diddy, Salaam Remi, 9 SOUNDCLIK, Sly & Robbie and Phillip “Fattis” Burrell.
“I’m not following no blue print for this, ya get that…You can’t typecast me. I can rock whatever, but you’ll feel me. When ya think I’m on the ground, I’m in mid air.” iNi Kamoze flows timeless, but urgent, from the inside out…"can’t be rigged or faded." This cryptic poet prefers to remain a shadowy enigma – owing more to Gil Scott-Heron – rather than sell out as this year’s pin-up singer model.
