For Ijahdan Taurus and his production team Royal Habits & Productions it is always a pleasure to work and bring conscious music to the world whether it is used for entertainment or educational purposes . The Focus is on world betterment ,using his music and organic agriculture to find spiritual, physical health and wealth balance, hoping that it can be an example for his listeners and those to discover the works.
The most recent tunes featuring Jamaican Artists "PERFECT GIDDMANI" and "Ras Xtr3me" clears the mist over all doubts about IJAH's aim as an Artist.
