UZMAN is a Canadian-Jamaican Reggae Fusion style Rap Artist born and residing in Toronto, Canada. He is first generation Canadian of immigrating parents from Jamaica. His mother is from Bois Content, St Catherines and father from Trelawny. UZMAN is most recognized for his single “Wine and Grind”, UZMAN and has an original flow that is described as combing several genres into a unique catchy sound with noticeable Caribbean background. The industry knows this sub-genre as Reggae Fusion.
UZMAN realized the reggae rap style existed in Toronto by witnessing international successes from local pioneer reggae rap style artists in the late 80's. In the early 90's, UZMAN's rap group, Project Underground was sometimes called the reggae rappers and was most known for their single "Funky Bogle". They performed on a national television Dance Show, "Electric Circus" and were on medium rotation at few college level radio stations. He has been song writing for many years and delivers strong punch line and fun type lyrics and is known for his energetic stage performances. He had recently collaborated with Tay Dizm, of T–Pain’s Nappy Boy Records, international reggae singer, Jah Mason and acquired the Reggae Meets Hip Hop DJ and world known remix king "DJ Power" to work on a collabo style remix of "Wine and Grind" with legendary reggae artist Junior Reid.
To his credit, UZMAN has been featured in Hip-Hop Weekly and Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes Magazine, and peaked at #8 on the Top 40 Indie chart on the award winning Starfleet Record Pool. UZMAN has recently been getting positive feedbacks from audiences in Toronto, Miami, Atlanta and Trinidad & Tobago. He is focused on collaborating with more reggae artists and releasing more fun, club type and party style music catering to the world market. Where ever Reggae Fusion is recognised, including his home town of Toronto Canada, UZMAN plans to be there.
