I Waata upbeat about new single | Entertainment
I Waata continues to carve out a reputable name for himself with the release of the single Tr888.
The video shows I Waata hanging out in an inner-city community, surrounded by his friends. With his drink in one hand and a spliff in the other, he spits rapid-fire bars with his signature flow as he speaks about his grimy lifestyle, his swag and the meteoric rise as an artiste.
The camera switches between twerking girls and the deejay growls ” straight from mi born, mi no inna mixup/gone pon the beach gone get mi ting up/gal weh dem a wife up ah fi mi nympho/anytime we link up, we get every info.”
“The song ah blow up, Quick Cook bring the riddim come give me. Now the world ah play it, nothing no wrong up, no stutter,” I Waata said.
According to I Waata, he recorded his first single in 2008. However, it went nowhere. Unfazed, he continued to work on his craft. His big break came when he opened Sting 2014 in Portmore, St Catherine, and he hasn’t looked back since scoring his first hit song, Pat A Shake, then blowing up with megahit, Cut Off Jeans.
He is currently promoting singles such as Bou Yah and Clip Tall, the latter of which has racked up more than two million views in only three months.
“Mi nah crowd the people, the ball game ah kick smooth as a bad man,” he said.
