Supreme is arguably one of the best dancehall-reggae artists to ever come out of the heavily Caribbean-influenced city of Toronto, Canada.
So much is being talked about the release of his debut album titled, Solid & Simple (Spreez Music Group/J-Nice Records). The star-studded, heavyweight project is slated to come out this September. However, due to public demand, it is being accompanied by two preliminary releases. To hold off the eager fans, Solid & Simple: The EP was released in May 2012 while Solid & Simple: The Mixtape will be released in June 2012.
Tygon, editor of the leading Toronto dancehall-reggae publication http://www.torontodeejays.com reviewed Solid & Simple: The EP and the following is an excerpt from the review:
“With this release, Supreme (real name Tyrel Mclean) has established himself as more than just a dancehall music star. He has managed the rare feat of instantly catering to and appealing to dancehall-reggae, hip hop, pop and R&B fans and all on one project. Solid & Simple: The EP is a classic collection of tunes with a variety of styles. The EP boasts female-oriented hits such as “I Know What You Need” and “Hardcore” alongside motivational and inspiring classics such as “Ghetto Anthem” and “This Is For The World.”
Solid & Simple: The EP is available for free download on 62 major music websites in both 320kbps and 128kbps high-quality MP3 formats as well as in both an unedited version and a clean radio-friendly version.
