Dancehall artist, Black Ryno reportedly wants out of his contract with acclaimed Jamaican record label, JA Productions, but not without his much anticipated album being released, according to the label’s main man and esteemed producer, Justus Arison.
Word broke late last week that Ryno told Arison he wanted out of his four-year deal with JA Productions, citing that he was growing wary of the music business. Ryno only signed that deal last year. As a result of that, Arison has not taken bookings for the singjay for the last four months.
In a press release, Arison explained the issue, mentioning that despite Ryno expressing his desire to leave the music business for a while, he is currently signed to another label, leading to tension between both parties.
“The man beg fi mi terminate him contract and when me ask him why him say him done with music, and then few days later me hear seh him sign to a different entity which legally is not possible.” the release read.
According to Arison, Ryno explained that he is still signed to Vybz Kartel’s Adidjaheim Records imprint, despite the fact he left Kartel’s Portmore Empire in 2010. This would make his JA Productions deal null and void.
Though Ryno plans to leave the label, something that Arison said he is willing to let happen. Arison insists Ryno’s 14-track studio album, Better Tomorrow will be released under his imprint within the next 30 days.
Better Tomorrow features singles such as Side Chick and Inside.
