HHO: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?
Frassman Brilliant: I would like to do collaborate with Swizz Beatz as a producer. For an artist I always imagined doing a collaboration with Beres Hammond because as I said before I always look up to Buju Bantan and I hear Buju do songs with him. In my culture of Reggae Music/Dancehall Music Beres is the ultimate singer.

Frassman Brilliant: Well right now I don’t have one major artist that I listen to. I listen to some old school Buju. Right now you can say my playlist have a mixture of everything like Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Busy Signal, Popcaan, Alkaline and a host of other artists. I really support the old to the new. I also listen to a little Hip Hop Music like Little Wayne and Drake.

Frassman Brilliant: My plans for 2017 is to give my music 100% in work ethic and in everything I’m doing musically. To put music before anything else. It’s time to put out the work. If you don’t put out the work you don’t get the result you need. So thats my whole focus for 2017.
Frassman Brilliant: I’m not really a person who focuses on what others are doing. I just focus on what I have do for myself. I just keep focused and work towards what I need to work towards as an artist. Right I’m just stepping up the way I do my business as an artist and put more into what I do.
