PRLog - June 23, 2012 - BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Ku-J is an Island Man. Born is St. Maarten in 1988, Jawara S. Joe (aka Ku-J) was introduced to music at a very early age. His father, Ras Bushman, founder and drummer of Freedom Fighters, one of the islands top reggae bands, purchased a keyboard for Ku-J for his fifth birthday. At the age of 10 Ku-J joined his first band and made his first appearance on stage at the age of 12. He grew up with the music of Bob Marley, Third World and other legendary reggae artists. Later in life, as Ku-J was introduced to hip hop, he decided to invent a new style fusion reggae with hip hop.
Ku-J’s latest CD “Destined to Win” brings an evolved artist with a distinct and crisp sound. His lead single “Mr. Customs Officer” is a musical rendering of incidences in life regarding discrimination and hardship that will try to get you down. No matter how you try to hold him back, in the end, he is destined to win. All you need is the will and a strategy. This song is relatable in so many ways. You feel the frustration but when you hear it through song, it changes the energy. This song is pure traditional reggae and no one does it better. The rythme is smooth, sexy and a joy to listen to.
