According to the rapper, who is now featured on VH1ís popular TV show Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, Jamaica's influence in his development has made him a strong individual.

"I want to put a new computer in schools in Jamaica every month. I just want to keep on doing it. I have already made connections with notable people like Jackie from the show Basketball Wives. She is going to donate, and I already have my first batch of computers," he said.

The artiste also revealed that schools in the parish of Hanover will be the first in line to receive computers.

"Pondside in Hanover is where my family is from so, I am just gonna set it up from there and work my way across the island. My mother used to run track and field with Merlene Ottey back in the day, and there is a Merlene Ottey (high) school in that side of the island that I might visit. I just want the teenagers to know that they should not give up, you know, stay focused on your education. I want this charity to get really really, big and help the schools out," he said.
