When it hits you, you feel no pain. When it comes to music, we realize how powerful and healing it can be. Reggae Music has come a long way since Bob Marley’s global ascension and now it is becoming a thriving industry and genre throughout the world. One of the many places that has received its impact is Canada and there has been a string of musical explosions coming out of this North American country including the rise of Recording Artist Drake. The Reggae/Dancehall scene has also become very vibrant, and we are now seeing the likes of Dancehall Artist Popcaan aligning himself with Drake’s O.V.O. label and a new wave of young acts from Toronto creating their own buzz.
Adding himself to the new wave is Maxximus. Otherwise known as “Maxximus The Greatest”, he originally hails from Kingston 12 in Jamaica. Known for its alias “Mexico”, Maxximus was raised in the Inner City community of Arnette Gardens that has spawned stars like the late Dancer Bogle, Recording Artist Nesbeth, and DJ Squiddly. Jerome Brown aka Maxximus along with his parents migrated to Canada early in his life and with music as his passion, he started to focus on where and how to improve on it. Now in his twenties, Jerome Brown is looking to make a mark for himself and has teamed up with various producers to accomplish this. Working between Jamaica and Canada, his career is a work in progress. He has joined forces with production houses like Full Range Entertainment, Push A Yute, Building Block, and other popular labels.
Currently working on an EP set to drop in Spring 2016, Maxximus is prepared for life on the road and in the studio. After speaking with Sherene McQueen, Co owner of Push A Yute, she describes Maxximus as a “Hard working artist who is only interested in getting better”. With talent and youth on his side, look out for the lyrical artist.
