This artist take pride in knowing he’s nothing like what you’ve ever heard or seen before but in ways alike, so his lyrics aren’t too over the heads of his audience. But, that doesnt mean he’s not a phenomenal emcee! With songs like “Metro Flow” and “Get to my level” He would have you in awe as the “braggadocious” rapper delivers punchline after punchline mixed with melodic catchy hooks to get you off of your feet. Molly says the reason he started to go by the name “Molly” is because he wants his music to be your drug. in a radio interview in 2017 the rap prodigy was quoted saying “I want to be everything they need, ya know? and more. They want that typical rapper sh*t? I got you. I do that well. They want that struggle and motivational sh*t? Say less, bro I got you. They want want that “I just hit a lick, now im bout to blow a bag” music? I got you! Just broke up with your girl? I got you. Tryna get your b*tch back? I got you. Basically what im saying is I don’t wanna give y’all any reason to listen to any other rapper but me haha”. Who knows where rapper may be in the next few years. Perhaps, we may be witnessing the next big superstar! One thing for sure is, It only goes up from here. Be on the look out for the rapper’s Debut Mixtape “Devil’s in the Details”.

Boom Steppa – Its easy for an artiste to get overshadowed with the abundance of talents in what has become a highly competitive Dancehall Industry but Fabian Wilson more popularly known as Boom Steppa has no plans of getting caught in that trap. A most peculiar name Steppa was given to him by a friend because of how he walks with a rhythm to which he later added the Boom to describe the type of explosive tracks he planned on bring to the mainstream market. At 6ft 2” Boom Steppa towers over not only the average man but also his lyrical contenders with sharp well written songs not to mention flows full of melody and clarity. Born and raised in the St. Catherine community of Central Village Steppa grew up pretty like a normal youth enjoying his childhood days but somewhere around 15 his focus began to change and music soon became his calling.
Starting out writing simple hooks Steppa spent his days teaching himself the techniques of song-writing and later began to share his creative lyrics with his brother who at the time was a trying DJ. As his content grew and his mind adapted to that of a recording artist Steppa had developed a style of his own and before he would finish high school was a budding DJ. former student of the Jonathan Grant High, Steppa though he understood the importance of school, some how he couldn’t avoid getting into trouble and was subsequently expelled.
The continued education came in the form of Tivoli Garden High were he did his final two years in school often times taking to the streets in search of recording studios to jump start his career. his chance came as a link brought him to the Black Roots studio’s of veteran rock steady music icon Sugar Minnott where he recorded his very first single “Ghetto Life” a year later. The opportunity gave the still very young Steppa even more confidence in his music and off he went recording for other producers.
As the years passed Steppa took on the added responsibility of ghost writing for not just any DJ but some of the best in the business. Between 2005 – 2007 he penned lyrics for Mr lexx, Predator, Galaxy p, New Kidz and many more, but it wasn’t until Steppa joined forces with the Alliance general Bounty Killer that his name began to resonate in a few circles.
Bounty recorded two tracks for the young writer – “Firm & Strong” in 2006 and 2007 “Four Season” hit. That same year he was featured in the Holiday Medley video with Bounty, Vybz Kartel and Bling Dawg on a track called “That’s who we are” with mr lexx but soon after had to take a break from recording because he was shot and hospitalize for three months. Steppa however recovered and realized that his own career was more essential recording the song “So Much To Me” on the Not Out Riddim In 2007 with a video directed by Robin Chin soon following For PayDay Music he has done “Nuh Bwoy” on the Gangsta Beat Riddim and “Protect Me Please” on the grung ghad Riddim, ”protect the children” on the merge riddim.
In 2009 Boom Steppa decided to break off from Payday Music and start his own record label NEXXSTEP NETWORK,the first production was the successful single “Naaw Stay Poor” with a chart topping music video which went #1 on RETV, peaked #3 on CVM Hitlist,#1 on GBEtv in America etc, following up with another successful single and video “MONEY” Boom Steppa managed to seal link with Philipp Schmitz of Philtunes Music which led to a 6 weeks German tour spring 2011 which saw him performing in Cologne, Monchengladbach, Bochum , Dortmund and even shot a Music Video in Cologne.
On return to Jamaica he wrote and produced the collaboration “NEVER STOP PRAY” which debut CHRONIXX Locally Boom Steppa has performed all across the island and has graced big stages such as Fully Loaded, Bling Dawg Summer Jam and Galiday Bounce…
After seeing things going in the same direction for years Boom Steppa took a break 2012 to analyze and upgrade his style and image, now laced with new songs for 2013 the independent Artist believe his time to break mainstream is not far away and as such will continue paying his dues.
“The future is unpredictable you know but at the same time I’m gonna always work the hardest I can because I wanna take my music to an international level and the ground work is necessary so this is just me looking for the hits to make it happen I’m just going to do Boom Steppa”
