Kingston, Jamaica: – A buzz is currently on the streets of New York surrounding the hot new rap sensation Lil Lion, who has teamed up with Barbee, well known for her hit collaborations such as Missing You with Junior Kelly and Paddy Cake with Beenie Man. 12-year-old Lil Lion and Barbee have recently written and recorded the new track: Age Is Just A Number produced byIngoma and Daine ‘Jimmy’ Clarke for Mel-Shar Entertainment of New York.
The track, Age Is Just A Number, introduces Lil Lion to the reggae market and demonstrates his lyrical competence as a Deejay. As a rapper Lil Lion has shown quality beyond his years, which has already earned him the admiration of both fans and members of the Hip-Hop fraternity. Now reggae fans have the chance to see him hone his skills in this genre.
Born in New York, Lil Lion claims reggae heritage as his father, a Jamaican producer who migrated to New York in the late eighties, has had considerable influence on his musical tastes.
“Growing up my father listened to Notorious BIG, Busta Rhymes, Bob Marley, Super Cat and Beenie Man. I have a love for both Reggae and Rap but I always wanted to do Reggae music and Barbee gave me the opportunity with Age is Just A Number” – Lil Lion
“Lil Lion has some of the best lyrics I have heard form a young DJ, when he is in the studio I have to really look to see if its really him deejaying.” – Barbee
Age is Just A Number has stirred a bit of controversy in New York as it portrays a young boy trying to date and adult. However, Lil Lion explains that the song is innocent and illustrates normal adolescent feelings.
“Age is Just A Number song just shows how sometimes teenage boys like me can have a crush on a older woman, many kids my age will understand. This song is just innocent fun” – Lil Lion
Age is Just A Number will be released next week and can be heard on Lil Lions Myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/lillionempire.
