As Summer approaches, we caution fans of DC nightlife and everyone in the area to exercise caution when out on the water. Here are some safety tips from jetski.com for those of you who plan on jet skiing this season.
Miami-born, raised in Jamaica, the grandson of a Reggae great, Sean spent parts of his youth in prison (age 11 for breaking and entering) and living in a car (while his mother served time for identity fraud). Through the struggle the young star was able to shine through and show the world his unbelievable talent. Making waves with his 2007 hit ‘Beautiful Girls’, Kingston went on to drop ‘Me Love,’ ‘Fire Burning,’ and ‘Face Drop,’ co-write fellow Miami singer Jason Derulo’s ‘Watcha Say,’ and discover Iyaz.
He has upcoming releases with DJ Khaled, Bow Wow, T-Pain, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, Wyclef Jean, Akon and Dr. Dre. He recently released ‘Eenie Meanie’ with Justin Bieber, who has been very vocal about his support to #prayforseankingston as has fellow Caribbean pop collaborator Nicki Minaj.
Kingston and Bieber have a mixtape slated for release this year.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sean Kingston’s family and hope he makes a full and speedy recovery.Tweet
