King of the dancehall Beenie Man is renowned worldwide for his artistry and musical exploits. The music veteran, who has more than thirty years of experience as a performer and lyricist, has now transitioned into the role of music mogul.

Beenie Man recently signed US rapper J Gunn to his MD Music label. Gunn is the first overseas based artist signed by the iconic dancehall star.

Beenie Man believes Gunn has the talent to become an international sensation. With his years of experience and trailblazing hits on the international scene, Beenie brings a wealth of first-hand knowledge to his new role.

J Gunn who is featured on the remix of Beenie Man’s recent chart topper We Run Road, met the dancehall star late last year when he flew into the island to perform at DJ Kurt Riley’s party in Christiana.

Weeks later Gunn joined Beenie Man on his European tour where he performed as opening act. Both are now set to embark on a six country West African tour this spring.

Born Joshua Gunn, the rapper has been a fixture on the North Carolina hip hop scene for over 15 years and has shared stages with top acts including Public Enemy, the Fugees, Trey Songz, Cypress Hill and Young Jeezy among others.

While in high school he formed a group called Thethryrday. He later attended the North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where he earned a degree in psychology.

In 2011 he was signed to rapper MC Lyte and television mogul James Dubose’s Dubose Music Group label. The following year he was the first artiste selected for the BET Music Matters Campaign.

This summer he will be on tour with Beenie Man, and can be seen on the BET reality series Music Moguls with Damon Dash, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri and Birdman.  He also has a number of songs including collaborations and music videos to be released.
