Music was always a passion of these talented young men. It’s a struggle, not only being in the Caribbean, but in one of the less developed islands in its grouping (The Lesser Antilles). In their younger years, while going through high school, they spent recess breaks freestyling and writing raps in class. They had a childhood that revolved around the love for Basketball (Shaft), Money (Black Boi), Exposure (S-Montana) and Life (Shatta).

All being exposed to the particular rapping word play of the 1990’s and small competitions between each other allowed them to grow into one of the most proficient groups/record labels in their region.

The group was formed in February, 2010. Shatta (Nahya Evans) “CEO” decided to form a group, and named the group Suede Entertainment. The named derived from how the artists delivered their flows. The suave releases from the artists (Shatta, T-Bonez, Shaft, S-Montana and Professor) became known after their first Mixtape “Jackin’ Fa Beatz – The Sermon”. All of the Artists were born and raised in the Commonwealth of Dominica. This country is widely known for Bouyon or Calypsonian artists. Suede Entertainment presents music that’s associated with detail that depicts most their life experiences. With storming music and building a video base on YouTube, the group and record label plan on taking the music industry to the next level in Dominica.
The group has been featured on a Da’s Finest Website at the release of their 2ndMixtape in 2013 “Failure Ain’t An Option” “Da-Finest” and with content being released on EDiztrict’s website “Ediztrict” their exposure’s been kicking up a storm in the islands region.
