Did you know that Jamaican Producer SOS Dynamikz could rap? Now you do. The Zinc Fence Records member ended his “Rapper Hiatus” to deliver some bars over one of his production on “Pressure Freestyle Part 2“. With his unorthodox flow and lyrics, this could be a sign of more to come. Look out for his upcoming Mixtape with 13thStreetPromotions and DJ Fusion.

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from a great singer, Boris Gardiner. Titled “Every Nigger Is A Star” and produced by Leal Records in 1973, this was created in the era of Blaxploitation Films and strong Black Pride. Boris created this song as an effort to bring a positive tone to the word “Nigger” the same way Hip Hop music has been doing today in various songs. Boris also sang about loneliness, reflecting on Africa, and acceptance and recognition of the black man. The song was featured on the soundtrack that he and his brother Barrington were contracted to make for the movie of the same name. The movie was made also in an effort to bring a change to the word, but turned out to be a huge flop in Theaters.

Prodigal

Prodi, formally known as Prodigal Son, gospel artist now turned Reggae sensation has released yet another Reggae single. The single entitled ‘Rat Poison’ produced by Yard Movement was released a couple weeks ago and has been creating a lot of buzz. The ‘Circle Small’ artiste has been hard at work since he rebranded himself and has prided himself on making music with positive messages. The song speaks about dishonest people who take from those who work hard for a living. Prodi further explained the significance of the title of the song stating that “Rat Poison is really a metaphor for going out for your money, which is the cheese. If a man tries to take that cheese, you have to set the poison. It’s really about defending your food”.

The single has been receiving a lot of air play on several radio stations across the region and is set to be released on iTunes in just a couple of days. Prodi shared, “Rat Poison is doing well, it is creating a bit of a buzz in Jamaica and Costa Rica but an even bigger buzz in Panama and Prodi is presently planning his European Tour for 2015.

NEW MUSIC: @DreggaeMusic – Dancehall Dead!

Standard

10845893_10101836066734671_5627719010935125129_o

Speaking his mind today on Dancehall is Atlanta based artist, Dreggae. Titled “Dancehall Dead!” and featured on Yellow Moon Records’ “Wul Dem Again” Riddim, Dreggae speaks on his distaste for some of the content coming out from the genre. Here he lashes out on artists copying one another, unnecessary beefs,  artists more about the materialism and “badness”, not focusing on true lyricism and other issues. With the way Dancehall has been going lately, it’s only right that artists like Dreggae step out with something different and break out of the monotony. What do you think? Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
