It’s a new year and a new vibe for Leadpipe. Not only is the “liquor animal” sporting a trendy new look, but he is ready to embrace all that music has to offer, go wherever it takes him as a solo artist and release an EP later this year.
“My main objective is not only to be representing Barbados in regional countries. I want to represent Barbados internationally. If I can put out music that can be filtered into movies, video games, a soundtrack on Netflix. If I can get my music marketed, it falls right back to Barbados,” he said via telephone.
Before delving into the direction of his music, Leadpipe, or Porgie as he is also known, spoke about the new look.
“I thought it was time for a new look and I decided to go back to a low haircut, which took off a bit of the age,” he said chuckling. He will be celebrating his 28th birthday on January 15.
Along with debuting his new look in October, he also announced his solo career.
“We – myself and Saddis/Murda – have decided to explore more avenues because we have different styles that play well together, but as individuals we can stand out. He can handle his own and I can handle my own. Basically, it was us saying we’re going to try something different instead of every year we’re coming back as Leadpipe & Saddis,” he said. (GBM)
