Former Portmore Empire artist Tommy Lee is gearing up to release his new mixtape this summer.
In a recent interview with the Observer, Tommy Lee says he is happy with his growth in the dancehall music industry.
“I’m really happy with the direction my career is heading cause I have placed my all into it,” Lee said. “I am a freshman in the game, so there is lots more for me to learn.”
“There is a new breed of dancehall acts now who are bringing their ideas to the game, therefore some persons need to adjust to the changes. With every generation comes new ideas and trends,” Tommy Lee added.
Tommy Lee, whose real name is Leroy Russell, hails from the tough Flankers community in Montego Bay. He joined the Vybz Kartel lead Portmore Empire in 2010 and has since been making strides in dancehall with songs such as “Some Bwoy,” Psyco,” “Holding Out The Pressure,” and his latest collaboration with mentor Vybz Kartel called “Informa.”
