The Artiste said, “the Gaza and I have always been good, enuh, but right now, we and the team have a full understanding. The producer dem a say Savage, the artiste dem a say Savage, and the fans a say Savage, so Savage a say dem. The Gaza camp is a very established and well-respected camp with a big platform”.
Savage went on to state that “with the fan base that I’ve already built as an independent artiste, and the fan base that they have, Savage’s career is looking good right now.”.
Savage believes an artiste needs to embrace growth. “I did so on my own and I established Savage Entertainment, and now I’m looking to grow even more as part of the Gaza empire.” He was formerly a part of the Gully squad, but the king of dancehall himself, Vybz Kartel, was always supporting Savage’s music even when he was on the other squad, and so yuh affi loyal to who loyal to you,” he revealed.

The album is expected to have a number of hits and it will feature some collaborations with some of the biggest giants in the music business. It’s will be a strictly dancehall album.
“We’re sifting through right now, trying to find the right name for the album. I want it to represent where I’m at right now, and also grabbed the attention of fans. I know I have the potential to be one of the biggest artistes in Jamaica, and this album will show the space that’s there for me in dancehall”.
He continued “It’s gonna have hardcore lyrics, a few cross-over type of sounds. I’m expecting it to go very big,” Savage explained.
