Hot on the heels of his multi-platinum, Grammy-winning classic album, Dutty Rock, he dropped the 2005 RIAA platinum smash The Trinity. That album led off with the Top 10 single “We Be Burnin’,” followed by the #1 smash “Temperature.” Now Sean Paul is stoking the flames once more with his highly anticipated fourth album, Imperial Blaze. Sean Paul will perform at the 2015 Necker Cup “End of the World Beach Party” on Friday, December 4th.
