Recording Artist I-Octane has been making moves lately. With a successful ongoing tour and new endorsements, he took time out of the excitement to hop on Adele’s “Hello“. With assistance from Seanizzle, Octane addresses “Badmind” on the phone about its constant attempts to derail his life and career. With Jah by his side, he proclaims that badmind can’t hold him down and encourages listeners to strive for success. If badmind is on the Caller ID, send it to voicemail.

If you’re a listener of Dancehall Music, then you’ve heard the name “Shabba Ranks” before. One of the greatest Dancehall Artists that ever stepped on stage, we’ve called him “The Grammy Kid“, “Emperor Ranks“, and “Big Dutty Stinking Shabba” to name a few. As child he was one of the few Deejays I’ve looked up to, when he dropped music videos and stage performances I was glued to the TV screen despite my family complaining of how “slack” his music was. Today, on Oldies Sunday I present to you a few of his songs, and the singles that have sampled/paid tribute to him. What are your favourite Shabba Ranks singles? Let us know in the comments section. Let’s go!

Lifestyle Blogger ShannyDeLioness is back for another week of “Mixtape Rave“! This week she serves you an array of Mixtapes she’s been feeling over the past 7 days. If you missed the 1st installment, check it out here.
DJ Charlotte is one of Trinidad & Tobago’s hottest DJs. This release coincided with the 2016 YUMA Carnival Band launch for Trinidad Carnival and it is a sweet mix indeed. The perfect confectionary of Soca, Dancehall, Hip Hop and Top 40 hits. Released 2 Months ago on her Sound Cloud, it is a favourite for me!
Those who know me well know that I love EDM as much as I love Soca and Dancehall! Barbados’ finest (To me definitely), DJ Puffy goes in hard with this EDM mix. I literally feel like I am at Tomorrowland or some other huge EDM festival just listening to this high energy mix.
Taking it back to yard (never stray far from my roots)this time around, this mixtape showcases the talents of 2 members of one of Jamaica’s hottest Sound Systems, Chromatic. This mix of some of the hottest Top 40, Hip Hop and Dancehall hits and numerous Dub samples is an eargasmic treat.
Fresh off the heels of his “Undisputed” Mixtape, Dreggae loads up the lyrical gun and takes more shots with a new single. Titled “Bad Fi Picture” and produced by Decision Productions on the “Fully Badd Riddim“, Dreggae goes at those who create the “Gangster/Rich” facade though various social media outlets. He also warns those who practice it the outcome of all that “hype“. Shout out to those whose online life is the same outside of it. No need to fool the followers, and “Fake it till you make it“.
