Grammy winning artiste Beenie Man wants to establish his pet project, Mafia House, as a big player in the international dancehall market. Although he is still signed to Virgn Records, he intends to dabble in new areas of entertainment, and is now seeking out talented artistes who can help to form the core of what will be a powerful new force in the business.
"It is already in the works where Mafia House will be signed to an international label, even Scott Starks wants to sign us now because he is so confident in what we have to offer, but we want to build an independent company, and then carry what we have built in to a major record company...we are not going to run into anyone," Beenie told YardFlex.Com.
"Mafia House Productions is a lyrical continent, some man have lyrical content, we have the lyrical continent...Content is just a small place inna St. Elizabeth," he quipped.
D'Angel who scored big with last year's runaway top ten hit, 'Downtown Girl', has inked a deal with Mafia House Productions. Beenie Man's long-time 'consigliere', Don Mafia, the man who has penned a number of hits for Beenie including last year's 'One Bag a Lie', will play an integral part in the project.
