Ultra-talented Free People Entertainment recording artiste Droop Lion has emerged as one of the leading voices of a new reggae-soul movement in reggae music this year. Known for his breakout hit, ‘Freeway’, Droop Lion is revolutionizing reggae music with his soul-searing voice, inspirational songs and awe-inspiring live performances.
Born in the parish of St. Mary Jamaica, to Inez Aikens and Vivian Brown, Andrew Brown aka Droop Lion grew up in the tough, gritty shanties of Kingston. He lost his mother to gun violence when he was just nine months old, a savage act that robbed the young man of a mother’s love. He turned to music to express himself and make a spiritual connection with the universe. At a young age under the guidance of his grandmother, he vowed to stick to the conscious path and not compromise in order to achieve success.
“My music is down to earth and cultural. There’s always a message in it. It’s like a medicine to society’s sickness,” Droop Lion says of his particular brand of music.
