Dancehall artiste Vershon who is currently on the island sat down with The Fix to talk about his successful music career and plans for the future. In the interview, Vershon pointed out that he’s now living in Florida after migrating during the pandemic.

Vershon whose birth name is Adrian Brown and now 33 years old disclosed that despite the move to overseas being successful business-wise, it has slowed down his buzz in Jamaica because he’s less active on the ground locally.

According to Vershon, at one point he was “stuck” in one place and did not get to do shows and move around as he would like because he was waiting on his papers to finalize. He explained that he does not have as many producer associates overseas as in Jamaica. He detailed that when he is in Jamaica he usually works with Cash-Flow and Burchill and working with them is natural to him.

“Mi back and forth,” he states as he explains how he keeps his career afloat. He was next asked by Naro whether or not he “married fi papers”, however, Vershon revealed that, that was not the case and getting US citizenship was “easy” for him. He went on to detail that because he’s a law-abiding individual getting his papers was not hard.

According to Vershon, prior to his return to the island, he was convinced by supports to return to Jamaica because his music have a message that is needed in the Dancehall industry. With regards to the lewd music that’s taking over the Dancehall space, Vershon outlined “Yuh nuh affi put everything inna di music.”
