Jermaine “Salute” Green was born on September 24, 1982 in Birmingham, Alabama. He is the younger of two kids, and has had a passion for music and entertainment ever since the age of 11. Salute lost his dad to the US Army while his mom was six months pregnant, so he never met his dad. That alone has lit a fire in him to be successful. He himself joined the Army in April 2001 after high school, and also served in Iraq.
Salute has worked and performed with some of the biggest names in music, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne and Scarface, etc. In 2013, Salute decided to move closer to his mom in Alabama. Upon arrival he connected with a long time child hood friend named Timothy “Attitude” Clayton who has worked with and wrote for the likes of Timberland, Nelly Furtado, Jay Z and more. Attitude introduced him to DJ Stikuhbush, which has now led to Salute’s latest single release, Ain’t No Way (feat. DJ Stikuhbush).
On “Ain’t No Way (feat. DJ Stikuhbush)”, Salute puts on a definite show. If you want some banging music, to head to the club or just to feel good, with a tight style, then this is the one. It’s universal; you have to try really hard not to like it.
What’s amazing is how Salute manages to keep the hiphop-street feel throughout his songs while still having elements that would appeal to the RnB and Pop world. He drapes “Ain’t No Way” with the trendy vocoder vocal effect, which makes his voice blend nicely with the music and enhances the hypnotizing urban feel of the song.
Anybody who actually takes the time out to sit and listen to what Salute has to say will have no choice but to like him. He is the truth as he speaks from real life experiences that others can relate to. Besides he can do everything, including produce, rap, sing and basically make it happen.
I think Salute is a good rapper and he works hard. He has the whole package: the voice, the wit, the lyrics, the attitude and the uplifting flavor about never giving up, on this single, adds even more shine to his already acquired luster. “Ain’t No Way (feat. DJ Stikuhbush)” can get anyone off their feet. If you don’t believe me buy it and find out!
