He emerged on the scene amid controversy, and although the saying “All publicity is good publicity” might hold some truth, Stamma Gramma would have rather that his first newspaper write up would have been about his music.
Born Michael Kruise Williams, Stamma Gramma grew up purely on the influences of music as his father was formerly the best sound engineer on the north coast of Jamaica. He started writing songs from the tender age of 10 while living in Kingston, Jamaica. So his story is not one of overnight success. He practiced his craft by writing and mastering his music, as well as perform at local talent throughout the island.
In February 2013, Stamma Gramma controversial story exploded over the Internet and made the lead entertainment news in Jamaica. The artist was accused by dancehall star Tommy Lee of being a ‘stalker fan’. Tommy Lee and his team went on to defame Stamma Gramma on social media sites. This allegedly stems from a business deal gone bad, but Stamma Gramma stood his ground, gave his side of the story. took his grievance out by voicing a song and moved on. “Its just funny cuz I wloud’nt even reply to him if he disses me now, cuz I don’t war with cartoon character, bout him name Captain Sparta! Why would I war with him?, its impossible to send animation go docta!” says Stamma Gramma. Music is Stamma’s first priority and he did not let this episode deter him from his goal.
Out of ashes a phoenix shall rise and that is the mind thought of Stamma Gramma has he takes his hit single “Scammer Anthem” to the screen. The artist is putting the final touches on the video which will premiere Friday on the widely popular WorldstarHipHop website.
The video is produced and directed by Gesta Music Records, “The song was made for entertainment purposes only. It was not meant to stimulate people’s mind for scamming,if it does, i cant be held responsible, i cant control one’s actions. It contains subliminal messages that makes the public aware that scamming exists at its peak and even giving hints on how it is done. Furthermore if Babylon waaa scrutinize me fi scamming song, them affi help the youths fuss, cuz me as an artist is just the public speaker, im only a reflection of what happens in society through my lyrical content. If them did a help poor people, them wld’nt have to resort to such activity and i wld’nt be inspired to sing such a song. Ignorant people will be offended, people who possess a sense of humor wont! states Stamma Gramma.
