Notnice collabs with ONErpm for ‘Kyng Midas’ launch

Published:Saturday | August 10, 2019 | 12:00 AM

On Thursday, award-winning Billboard producer Ainsley ‘Notnice’ Morris of Notnice Records launched his first ‘non-riddim’ album, Kyng Midas, in collaboration with global music distribution company ONErpm.

The album features 18 original tracks with some of dancehall’s top entertainers, including Sean Paul, Popcaan, Agent Sasco, Teejay, Bounty Killer, Dexta Daps, Rygin King, JahVinci, as well as two new artistes, Nordia Mothersille and Natural Flames.

As a young producer himself, who started and built from the ground up, it was important to Notnice to include new, young talent on the album and give them an opportunity to be featured alongside some of reggae and dancehall’s greats. This is why Notnice, who previously always distributed his music on his own, decided to partner with ONErpm on the release of this new album.

Notnice stated: “A lot of times Jamaican artistes and producers don’t know how to properly monetise their music. I’ve always distributed my own music, but the platform that ONErpm has created, and the added support and benefits for not only me as the producer, but for artistes themselves, really sealed the deal for me in terms of this partnership. This is what we need in Jamaica. This is what the Jamaican music and entertainment industry needs. I’m excited to partner with them on this release, and I’m looking forward to what this will do for Jamaican entertainers.”
