Dancehall Tours - hosted by Pantason - Episode 22 - Warrior King
Welcome to Dancehall Tours a series where we interview artists about how cannabis plays a part in their music.
Today our host Pantason interviews Reggae artiste Warrior King. Warrior King's musical career began in high school where he performed in talent shows. At that time, he followed the musical style of reggae artiste Bounty Killer.
Over time, his style evolved eventually leading to his international chart topping single Virtuous Woman in 2001 (produced by Michael "Mikey John" Johnson) for Lion Paw Productions. In October 2001, this song was # 1 on the Jamaican reggae charts, as well as, the New York Top 30 Reggae Singles chart.
In 2002, his debut album Virtuous Woman was released by VP Records and spent nine weeks on the Billboard charts. This album included the songs Hold Da Faith and Breath of Fresh Air. Many established producers in the reggae industry contributed to this album including Sheldon 'Calibud' Stewart (Sizzla Kalonji), Lion Paw (Luciano and Junior Kelly) and Penthouse (Buju Banton and Beres Hammond).
