Music

Gentleman has been travelling to Jamaica regularly since he was 16 years old. . His career began with the collaboration of the band Freundeskreis which produced the song "Tabula Rasa." After beginning his career as a Deejay, he based his style to the classic form of the reggae genre like that of Bob Marley. He sings mainly in English or Jamaican Patois. With songs like "Send A Prayer," Gentleman expresses his deep belief in God, without referring to a particular religion. His album, Confidence, climbed to number 1 on the German album charts in 2004. After ten years of making music under the label Four Music he moved to Universal in 2010.http://www.wildstylemag.com/index.php/magazine/news/1-news/1898-kitty-kat-gentleman-wechseln-zu-universal.html
