Originating from Portmore, Jamaica, AD-V later relocated to Harkers Hall, a location famed as being the home of late musical sensation – Lincoln Sugar Minott.
AD-V’s music is influenced by music of the 90’s such as Bounty Killer, Shaggy, Sugar Minott and Garnet Silk. Orinigally trained as an auto mechanic, faith would have it that Bling Dwaag, a known and loved Jamaican Dancehall artist, visited AD-V’s workplace one day.
AD-V took this brief window of opportunity to share a couple of his tracks with Bling Dwaag, who in return encouraged AD-V to keep up the good work.
