Two days ago (August 30th), Jamaican dancehall artist Masicka made an appearance on Fox5 New York’s Good Morning America, for his first-ever live television interview in the U.S.

The dancehall artist spoke on dancehall music, both in Jamaica and abroad, as well as the influence other artists such as Vybz Kartel and Bob Marley had on his career.

“In Jamaica the music is definitely more of a traditional thing like if you grew up in a community like Kingston, am from Portmore, so all of us would’ve come on the block and play music and listen to music,” Masicka said. “Music is something that born in us and it’s a huge part of my living… The communities in Jamaica has a strong love for music.”

Masicka has received praise from many dancehall fans for the way he handled himself on such a platform.
