"New Song and Jamaican Movie from E-Dee"

NEW Reggae Dancehall Movie Official Music Video “Rightful Place” by Artist E-Dee. Staring Mr Lexx, Edley Shine, Lady G, Father Times, Bless Man, Ms Triniti, Marlon Bling, Ninja and E-Dee - Hype Life TV

"E-Dee making strides, hits Billboard"

Even though his songs have been featured in more movies than those of any other Jamaican recording artiste, E-Dee is still one of the best kept secrets on the local entertainment scene.

With an impressive discography, this actor/singer from Toll Gate, Clarendon, most of his work has been done in the US and in Japan, where he spent quite a bit of time. However, he is clearly out of the gate and striding -- albeit without the hype and fanfare -- towards the rightful place.

Born Everton Dennis, E-Dee has found his way on the international radar having hit the Billboard Top 25 Hip-Hop R&B Sales chart (which few Jamaican artistes can claim) and if that is not enough, he has acted and has songs in various movies.

"I have five albums, but I think I have done more movies. However, both of them work together perfectly," E-Dee recounted.

His songs are featured in Macka Diamond's movie Redemption of Paradise and he has the distinction of working with internationally renowned acts Chris Rock and Keyshia Cole.

"The song Hot Like Summertime is in Macka Diamond's movie and also Think I Love My Wife featuring Chris Rock. That was produced by Black Eye Peas' Terrence Howard. I have a song in a dance flick with Keyshia Cole called How She Move and another in a ABC programme Are You Ready. I also have a song with Ms Trinity ...Little Bow Wow," boasted E-Dee whose biggest hit song is Revolution featuring Irie Love.

He also shares the credits on Ms Trinity's Bounce Along that went bouncing to the No 16 position on Billboard and from which came the number one video in Jamaica.

His new single, Rightful Place was released on iTunes two weeks ago and made it to the influential online music store's Top 20 chart. Rightful Place is the soundtrack to his true-to-life movie-in-the-making called Out The Gate.

"The movie is about me struggling from a kid. My mother passed away, best friend got killed and I got an opportunity where my uncle, played by Oliver Samuels, gave me the chance to go to LA to change my life," explained E-Dee about the flick.

"Going there was rough," he goes on. " I was struggling in LA trying to make it and run upon a few friends who were caught up in some wrongs...then they were blaming me. So it's a lot of drama based on my true life story, based on reality, based on life. It's more of me coming from Toll Gate, Clarendon Jamaica to Hollywood, Los Angeles."

In the film, noted Jamaican actor Paul Campbell plays the King of LA. Another famous personality in it is Shelley Boo of The Bold and Beautiful fame who plays the role of his girlfriend.

"This one is my second lead. But I've been in several movies in smaller roles. But this is my first lead role for a Jamaican movie. It will be released on DVD this summer," concluded E-Dee describing himself as the "number one artiste in LA" who will be on a promotional tour of New York and Atlanta, appearing on shows with Buster Rhymes, Sanchez and a host of other top acts on a big one-day show on July 4. - Jamaica Observer

"E-Dee making his mark"

E-Dee is definitely no stranger to the dancehall and hip hop scenes
. He has performed alongside some of the top entertainers in the industry: Beenie Man, Sean Paul and D-12 are just a few.

However, it is not the company he keeps but his very own vibes that are currently causing a stir. E-Dee's popularity is evident just from the sheer number of times he has recently featured in the Top 25 hip hop and R&B sales chart. Yet, the musical style he has now established could not be further from how the artiste started out.

He was born in Clarendon to a mother with extremely religious views. E-Dee, born Everton Dennis, sang in the local church choir, and that time church music was about all he was allowed to listen to. But, after his mother's death when he was 12, life taught E-Dee that he must be ambitious and hardworking in order to succeed.

And with this new sense of determination, he eventually landed himself in the States to study and follow his musical dreams.

America brought E-Dee new influences. He began listening to more and more hip hop and R&B. So, naturally he combined these styles with his Jamaican background in music - creating his own sound. Soon people were taking notice of this new talent, and E-Dee was finding himself being wanted for some of the biggest music festival line-ups.

It is easy to understand E-Dee's popularity when you look at the variation in his repertoire. His second single is a cover of Dennis Brown's Revolution featuring Irie Love. From these more traditional reggae sounds to classic club tunes in the making, like R U Ready?, E-Dee has done it all. His album JA 2 LA 2 DI WORLD, as you would expect, charts his journey thus far through life, and so an eclectic collection of subject matter features too. At the end of the year E-Dee will be performing at East Fest Jamaica, in Morant Bay.

Few artists out of Jamaica can claim to have been on the Billboard Top 25 Hip-Hop R&B Sales chart. Featured on Ms Triniti's smash single “Bongce Along," E-Dee was bouncing along for 5 weeks at the top.

Born Everton Dennis in the parish of Clarendon, Jamaica, E-Dee was the youngest of 8 siblings. His musical career began in the church, where he sang in the choir, so E-Dee’s early musical experience was steeped in gospel. Suddenly his mother passed without warning when he was 12 years old and a young E-Dee had to grow up quickly. Working hard to earn money for his school uniform and books E-Dee learned early on that if you want anything you must be dedicated and focused.

It was that diligence that he applied to his musical career that would bring E-Dee to his dreams. After completing his secondary education he moved to America to pursue his music career and study acting. While in the U.S., E-Dee’s steady exposure to Hip-Hop and R&B began to influence his writing. Infusing the American slang with Jamaican Patois, E-Dee’s sound began to evolve. Ending up in Los Angeles, E-Dee began performing at showcases. Word soon got out about this 6’5” rapper from Jamaica that was building a huge following. It wasn’t long before promoters began putting E-Dee on the bill of major festivals. With two CD’s selling strong in the streets soon E-Dee was sharing the stage with the biggest names in Dancehall/Reggae including Sizzla, Wayne Wonder, Bounty Killer, Shaggy, Beenie Man, Sean Paul, Elephant Man, Beres Hammond, Lady Saw and the list goes on. Not to be ruled out as only a dancehall/reggae favorite, his cross-over appeal has landed him shows opening for Hip-Hop artists D-12, Marques Houston and Ja Rule and got him collaborations with Capitol recording artist Houston and R&B group B2K.

In 2004 platinum record producer Qmillion sought out E-Dee to collaborate with Junior P. and Ms. Triniti on the song “Hot Again,” which was one of E-Dee’s four collaborations with Ms. Triniti on her debut album "Ragga Hop." Qmillion was so impressed with E-Dee’s talent that he immediately signed him to Unseen Lab Recordings and began recording a full length CD with E-Dee. During the recording of the album, E-Dee headed to New York to film a cameo appearance in the urban action film “The Party,” starring RL from the R&B group Next, and Darryl Hammond from “Saturday Night Live.” This work led to him landing a lead role in the upcoming feature film “Overkill,” co-starring Malik Yoba due for release in 2010. The song “Dangerous” by E-Dee and Ms. Triniti and was added to the “Like Mike 2” soundtrack in 2006. Released in 2007 was “I Think I Love My Wife,” the film starring Chris Rock and featured a new collaboration with E-Dee, Black Shakespere, and Terence Yoshiaki, a founding member of the Black Eyed Peas. E-Dee's song "Fire," was included in MTV's 2008 feature film "How She Move," starring Tre Armstrong and Keisha Cole. In 2007 the single for his album “JA 2 LA 2 DI WORLD,” was feature in the ABC Family series “Freshman Daze” and in 2009 his song “Hot Like Summer Time” was featured in Jamaican film “Redemption Paradise” staring Macka Diamond.

While most dancehall albums center on one subject; women, E-Dee’s albums entitled “JA 2 LA 2 DI WORLD,” and "DANCEHALL CELEBRITY," take you along E-Dee’s journey through life, touching on many subjects from the struggles of surviving in Babylon, to jealousy and envy of haters in the industry, to party life in the clubs on the dance floor, to love and relationships, to the last song on the "JA 2 LA 2 DI WORLD" album dedicated to his mother, “Mamma.”

The single "Revolution" featuring Irie Love, a remake of the classic hit by the Prince of Reggae, Dennis Brown, reached as far as 3 on Richie B's Top 20 Reggae Charts in Jamaica, Virgin Islands, and number 1 in Guyana. The single was also nominated for Best Reggae Collaboration of the Year at the Excellence in Music and Entertainment (EME) Awards. The video reached number 1 on the Reggae Top 10 Charts in the US, Jamaica, and Europe.

2010 brings the new smash double singles, "Who Jah Bless," and “Rightful Place.” Both songs will be the soundtrack singles for the movie “Out The Gate” which stars E-Dee, Paul “Mad Max” Campbell, Oliver Samuels, Mr. Lexx, Lady G, Edley Shine from Born Jamericans, Father Times , and Ms. Triniti. The sound of E-Dee's music represents a new sound in Dancehall/Reggae, influenced by Hip Hop and R&B that is appealing to a whole new market as well as dancehall's traditional fans. Energetic, exciting, emotional, and raw, this artist is poised to be the next Reggae artist to capture the attention of the music lovers around the world and take Dancehall and Reggae to the next level.

The "Out The Gate" Tour kicks of early 2010.
