The entertainment community continues to take several hits after losing yet another upcoming brilliant and talented artiste.
On the 26th of September news of the passing of Siah Boss spread like wild fire. Fans of the movement held their breathe hoping it wasn’t true as they were still coming to terms with the death of another great artiste Jahiem Joseph aka Chucky Blanco which happened a few days prior.
Reports stated that Siah was killed in a police involved shooting in the Santa Cruz Area.
Born on the 13th of January, Siah displayed true Capricorn Traits namely persistence, practicality, and ambition.
Recapping his musical journey through his Instagram Siah’s first post was dated on the 24 of September 2019 captioned “Fr fight and fight down”.
We then see a glimpse of his musical performances ft. fellow musician gskull_musikk.
What can only be classed as a declaration of love for the art of music, Siah posted on the 25/3/2020 captioned “Back at it again….Music is wah me LOVE….just remember everybody time must come..#stayfocus #onelink. Thanks for the support..#Dr. V MAD MANAGER”
The esteemed Dr. V is an author, lifecoach, family counselor, football coach and radio and TV host.
The return wasn’t just a part of his name, it was symbolic of his recommitment to his music and he further solidified this recommitment by releasing a song entitled The Return.
In true Sting spirit of friendly competition Siah went on to show a sneak peak of song he was recorded that was dedicated to another camp within the local music realm. The caption refers to one of the biggest rivalry in Dancehall music history “Remember Vybz Kartel , Mavado”
Still not missing a beat, we have a duo with Siah and fellow artiste Leo King.
Still in the musical competition, there was a preview of facts which was directed to the ztekk camp as it showed the Prince of the camp, Prince Swanny and Medz Boss.
An indicator that you are inside with the music is that you are featured on Outdey TV which is exactly where he was featured. The interview proved to be a very interesting one as it revealed some very intense history.
Trinidad and Tobago was so pleased to see the union of two rival gangs, the rasta city which is musically represented by Prince Swanny and the Ztekk team and the muslim Gang which features artistes such as maniac Toppy Boss, Magic and Siah Boss.
The entertainment community and by extentsion the fans of the movement were very pleased with this event and looked forward to fire collabs. I mean can you think about how epic a duet with Kartel and Mavado would have been? It’s the same when us music fans envision a collab of different camps…#greatness overload.
Siah then went on to release a song referencing the peace treaty that also gave some insight into the life.
Health issues became the forefront as a post was made on his behalf from his manager asking everyone to keep him in their prayers following a surgery he underwent.
Siah was then thinking of a master plan and credits again the esteemed Dr. V for having him full 100.
The Return part 2 was released
