All Music Guide:
Son of reggae legend Freddie McGregor, Daniel Chino McGregor is a Jamaican singjay whose star began to rise in 2010, thanks to his global style of dancehall. Growing up in a musical household meant Chino was exposed to many genres beyond his beloved reggae, but it was a move to America and a job at the label Slip N Slide that really expanded his style. With artists like Trick Daddy and Trina hanging around the office, Chino was well-versed in the Dirty South sound by the time he headed back to Jamaica. Back home, he launched his career under the name Cappuccino and was soon co-writing songs and producing tracks for the likes of TOK, Elephant Man, and Daville. In 2011, by then using the name Chino, he released the EP From Mawning, along with the album Chino...The Autobiography of Daniel McGregor. Both appeared on the VP label.
