450 credits team for his success
Dancehall artiste 450 has arguably has one of the steadiest breakouts into the dancehall music scene.
The artiste, whose name is inspired by his birthday, April 5, 2000, released his first track in 2019, but it was not until 2021 that he became popular with the track Imperfections. He has since released several other tracks and performed at Reggae Sumfest in 2022. He thanked his team for the trajectory of his career.
"A good team is important," he said. "Me and my team have the same vision for success and that's what makes it work. Big up to my manager, Jahvy Ambassador." Outside of his team, he said that his family plays a major role in keeping him grounded.
The Clarendon-born artiste, whose given name is Tristen Escoffery, came to Kingston right after high school to pursue his music career. Since his breakout hit, he has followed up with tunes such as Roses (which was released in time for Valentine's Day this year), Journey, as well as the viral tune Thunda, which featured Deno Crazy. Employing clever lyricism and catchy melodies, 450 said that he aims to remain authentic in the music business, and wants to continue to stand out and keep fans satisfied.
"My music is real, so I will always be relevant. But the most important thing to me is to ensure that my fans are happy with the music, and me and my team are achieving the goals we set out for," he said.
He said that his biggest achievement so far has just been the reception to his music. For the rest of 2023, he said he plans to continue showcasing his talent and expanding his reach and audience.
