ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Atlanta, Georgia his love of music began with his father Willie Lemons Jr., who opened up for such greats as Otis Redding. At age of 8, Cayenne made his first record with his father. The musical vibes run even deeper in lineage, as his grandfather, Willie Lemons was a ghostwriter for Atlantic Records 1963 through 1969. At the age of 17 he relocated to Durham, North Carolina in 1989 and a year later formed the hip hop group "Da Phunke Bushman", that went on to perform at the legendary Apollo Theater in New York, 1992. On the groups first compilation hip hop album "Jaffilation" , Cayenne penned his first reggae single titled "Spoonful of youth". From 1994-1996, his notoriety grew as a solo artist performing at well known night clubs and festivals such as The Bimbe, Reggae Sunsplash. He also was chosen to perform at shows with a variety of artist from hip hop to reggae such as Madlion, KRS1, De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, Wu Tang’s Killa Priest, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, Alba Mahr, Sizzla, Baby Cham, Tarrus Riley, Capleton, Bushman, Tonto Metro and Devonte, Midnite and Sister Carol. In 1996 he surfaced as the hottest reggae DJ/Selecta in North Carolina on the campus of North Carolina Central University's WNCU 90.7fm radio station for 11yrs. He was also at this time one of the top promoters with his movement he founded in 1990 called Black Lion Sound, bringing top name artist like Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Wayne Wonder, Red Rat, Red Fox, Sister Carol, Ward 21, Assassin, Wayne Marshall, Sluggy Ranks, Devone Clark, Grindsman, Lutan Fyah, Akinyele, Yung One, and many more until today. He then launched one of the hottest underground reggae mixtape series in the south titled "Reggae Blaze" named after his radio show. While developing and perfecting his skills as a promoter and businessman, he established some of the hottest night clubs in the Triangle Area namely, The Palace, Expressions, Que 2000, The Lion's Den, Lucky's, The Bounce Bar Lounge and Club Bounce that went on to be featured in Vibe Magazines' November 2004 issue. He subsequently released his independent singles and videos for "Toss ya drinkz up" and "Shake your Cowbell".He then put out his underground hip hop freestyle mixtapes called "Firewater" while working with his longtime friend, producer and engineer King James II, who has received Gold and Platinum Records from working with Juilez Santana, Keisha Cole, Biggie, Big Daddy Kane, Kelly Price, Sean "P-Diddy " Combs and more.
