kapri-dark-glasses.jpgOn-the-rise dancehall artiste Kapri is fit and ready to turn up the excitement level of dancehall quite a few notches.

Armed with a couple of new scorching hot singles and a pen that never runs out of ink, this "lyrical lunatic" is on the loose and eager to lock the city. Kapri is being skillfully led in the right direction by his Massive Entertainment team, headed by CEO Clayton Thomas, and which also includes Samuel "Bossie" Doman. Totally focused on getting the attention of the massives on the artiste, they have drawn for successful Billboard-topping producer Rohan 'Jah Snow Cone' Fuller, who has produced the riveting single Dark Glass.

"Kapri is obviously a very talented and versatile youth and those are not terms that I use loosely," Snow Cone emphasized. "He has some mad, crazy lyrics, he takes command of the riddim, he has a great image and most important of all, his attitude is right," says Snow Cone, who distinguished himself with the production of Sean Paul's Billboard number one single, Temperature.

Chockfull of the type of imagery which makes it real potent dancehall, Dark Glass is a gritty, infectious tune which fans can easily gravitate towards, as it exposes the difference between the real deal and the wannabes. Set on a bouncy, no-nonsense riddim, the the lyrics and the tone of the deejay are in total harmony, giving Dark Glass a credible boost.

According to Kapri, this is a gangsta tune, but it takes it from a different angle.

"It is a tale about the gangsta who doesn't really know how to be a true gangsta...it is not bigging up thug life or anything. If you listen to the lyrics, you will see that some of it is actually comical," the Pembroke Hall High past student explained.

Dark Glass, which is already being played on radio in the States, is getting much positive feedback from scores of fans, many of whom have been following Kapri's career since he burst on the scene in 2008 with the single entitled Dear Mama produced by Seanizzle. The song was featured on Chris Gold Finger's UK Chart and received heavy play in the Cayman Islands and several endorsements on mix CD's worldwide.

Dwayne Wallace more popularly known as Kapri, is one of the young fresh talents in the new generation of dancehall. Born and raised in the community of Pembroke Hall in Kingston, Wallace always had a knack for music and was encouraged by family and friends. One friend in particular, Sean 'Seanizzle' Reid, who had worked with many top Jamaican artistes noticed Kapri's talent and introduced him to producer/ artiste Mr. G, who invited Kapri to a DJ competition called Battle Thursdays. This event was created to find new talent and, as expected, Kapri won the battle twice in a row.

This was the boost that he was looking for and since then the deejay with the flowing songs rhymes has been positioning himself to make it big on the international stage.
