In 2013 he continued his musically journey by taking a different approach than the norm by doing his first ragga soca “Prepare fi d Wuk” which was released early January 16th, 2013 mainly aiming for the Carriacou Carnival season being that it was a rhythm created by his main producer Phillip “Wetty Beatz” Bastien for several Grenadian artiste. Following that his epic power soca “Mad Anthem” was released April 24th 2013. This song dominated all the rural carnival activities and became a signature song for all carnival revelers. The power soca song “Storm” was also released that year.
