Jah Cure featured on 2Pac single
He is arguably one of the most influential and compelling artistes, and 12 years after his death, Tupac is still creating waves.
The rapper is heard on a track with reggae superstar Jah Cure on a recently released song titled All By Myself.
Cure previously worked with other international stars including Rick
Ross, Flo Rida, Lil Wayne and Keri Hilson. Jah Cure told THE STAR that it was his contacts in the United States that helped him to secure this latest accomplishment.
“My friends and contacts in the United States, had some Tupac
tracks so me and my friend Pooh Bear wrote around his song and we put it
together. This is a genuine collab, it’s not a remix,” Jah Cure said.
He went on to say that even when he was going through his struggles, he was a Tupac fan because they share a similar history.
All By Myself is available for free download and is one of the tracks on Jah Cure’s soon to be released World Cry album. With less than 24 hours since its release, Jah Cure told THE STAR, that he has already been flooded with positive feedback from the track.
“Right now, my twitter page is lighting up. Disc jocks from all
over the world have been sending me BB messages and emails saying that I
should send them the link to the song. The words of the song are very
important for fans to listen to,” he said.
With his vast catalogue which include hits such as Longing For, Unconditional Love and You’ll Never Find, Jah Cure says All By Myself is easily one of his favourites.
“It’s one of my favourites. Before I even knew I was gonna have
the opportunity to collaborate with Tupac. He was one of my favourite
artistes. It’s good to see the hip-hop artistes recognising me. Drake
sampled one of my songs and I recently received my cheque for it so I
have to say thanks to Drake. America is loving me, and I love them right
back. God bless the day when I can enter that country, cause I know
I’ll be getting a good response,” he said
