Cush Hunta Lives His "Ready Fi Buss" Dream!


In My Opinion!

(Kingston, Jamaica 1st, Sept. 2010) Artistes are some of the most persistent persons to exist in our society.  In most cases an artiste is relentless in his/her effort to get the big break and more than often enough we see them rise above even our greatest imagination.  While we are yet to see another Bob Marley, the trend of becoming an internationally acclaimed Reggae/Dancehall artiste in more ways than one have been reached and kept; Making it highly possible that another Jamaican artiste can one day, rise above our wildest imagination to become the next Great Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall artiste since King Bob Marley, to emerge from our shores.  “I’m optimistic, are you?”

Cush Hunta Lives His “Ready Fi Buss” Dream!
Cush Hunta, ‘is a DJ warrior from the nineties Dancehall experience who battled at a time when the music industry was a cut – throat business. He fought his way on the music scene with the overwhelming power of his voice….” 
March 2009 Cush Hunta approached Calvin Hunter, a young Banking Executive, to manage his career.  The partnership brought about rejuvenation after a 1 year hiatus from the limelight. After forming The Corner Stone Productions Label, a comical follow up to his independent produced “Greens” single; entitled 'Mawga Bwoy' along with a video was released.  The focus was then extended to personal growth, an important aspect in the life of any artiste whose ambition is to reach for the stars.  Cush Hunta then spent many months interacting with industry insiders and the media; he did a host of interviews, social interactions and live performances.  Today, Cush has accomplished two major feat, that of recording with reigning Reggae Queen Marcia Griffiths and landing a major distribution deal for his “No Skylarking” single (which features Marcia Griffiths and young rapper Phaze Kryme) with Media Sports and Entertainment, MSE. Songs released and getting heavy rotation on radio includes; Ready Fi Buss, No Skylarking and A De Same Ting. 
Cush Hunta’s Ready Fi Buss single which was released early 2009 has resurfaced on the local airwaves.  The song seems to have hit the right chord among radio djs when compared to his other songs in the mix.  Even though there is much left to be done, it is quite evident that the work put in thus far has convincingly gained some traction with local DJs.  Clearly, Cush is living his “Ready Fi Buss” dream, a distant thought he had one year ago when he wrote and released the single.  A new video has been shot and edited and according to his Manager, Calvin Hunter, “a release date will soon be announced.”
