Born and raised in the volatile community of Dunkirk, East Kingston, Amlak is a young artiste that does the type of music that constantly hits hard in the ears of political figures and the system overall.
As a kid, Amlak was known for entering talent shows in his community.He usually won these contests because of his strong delivery. He would practice and perform songs that his uncle, Spragga Benz, had in rotation on the local radio stations.
In his teenage years, Amlak went to Excelsior High, St. Georges College and Dunoon Park Technical High School. He entertained everywhere he went because of the ability that he had mimicking his uncle. After high school, he migrated to America where he went to college and achieved his Associates Degree in Computer Applications. During this time, he held back in entertainment to focus on other goals until recently in 2008 when his cousin, Spragga's son, was murdered in Jamaica.
Carlyle loved music like his father and wanted to be involved in the industry when he came of age but sadly, his life was cut short. Amlak was very close to his cousin Carlyle, and when he died Amlak decided that he wanted to take up music again to honor the memory of his life.
After the death of Carlyle, Amlak started writing again and soon started to record officially with other young producers as well as doing his own production.
Since his uncle Spragga is the general of the Red Square Army it was only natural that Amlak aligned himself with the movement. Amlak grew up on Red Square corner so that was another clear indication where his loyalty would be.
Ultimately, Amlak's goal is to be successful in the music business so that he can contribute to his family and the Carlyle foundation which helps young people with talent achieve their goals without the financial limitations that many face.
