Vybz after noticing that Tommy Lee was receiving positive responses from the crowd, invited him to move to Kingston and become part of Vybz’s music crew Portmore Empire. However, Tommy was reluctant to leave his family and neighborhood and thus declined the offer. According to him, he said it was until his performance at Vybz Kartel’s Birthday Bash on January 7, 2010, that he decided to take the idea of being a musician seriously.
Soon later, he accepted the offer to become an official member of the Portmore Empire crew. In November 2010, he released his first recognized hit “Warn Dem” based on a riddim by Da Wiz his original producer from Snipa Studios. A music video accompanied the single directed by Dk Konsepp, it was also his first video as an artist. His breakthrough hit came on the 2011 So Bad Riddim with “Some Bwoy (Link Pon Wi Chain)”. The single was a success as it reached the No.1 spot on many of Jamaica’s informal music charts including Pree Dis and Entertainment Report, and the video was in heavy rotation on Caribbean stations such as RETV, Hype TV, and Tempo Networks. “Some Bwoy,” along with follow-up singles such as “Psycho,” “Buss a Blank,” We want paper, and “Shook (Uncle Demon),” gave Tommy Leefame recognition not only nationwide but also internationally.
In 2012, he was the headlining artist for both the international Reggae Sunfest show in Montego Bay and the string music festival in Portmore. Moreover, he was the first full-blown dancehall artist from the second city of Montego Bay to do so he was 23 years old at the time. Adidjahiem Records was shut down in May 2012 citing the legal issues of owner Vybz Kartel and lack of ability to represent/promote artists as reasons for the closure. However, the closure did not impact Lee’s career as he had been an independent artist with his own record label Guzu Musiq and his musical group the SPARTA Camp which consists of artists like Dre x Sparta and more. Tommy Lee announced in September 2012 that he would be changing his stage name to Tommy Lee Sparta for trademark resources.
This was for him to differentiate himself from Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and actor Tommy Lee Jones. The element “Sparta” was derived from an informal name given to the part of Flankers where he grew up. The move of changing his stage name was insulated by his lawyer as a way to prevent potential copycat musicians from impersonating him.
