MUSIC: @IAmWill x @CodyWise – Birthday

Standard

10314560_635749003168565_5558876161485573337_nToday’s new music comes from Pop artists Will.I.Am and Cody Wise with a little twist. Titled “Birthday” and produced by Will.I.Am and Damien LeRoy, this features samples from Jamaica’s own Aidonia (Fi Di Jockey) and Bounty Killa. The song is basically a feel good song that promotes living life to the fullest all the time and celebrating it like it’s your birthday. Sounds like a hit to me here and it’s very interesting to hear Dancehall being sampled in this. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW MUSIC: @KonshensSojah – Don Daddy (SuperCat Style)

Standard

Konshens__MTVIGGY_001Today’s new music comes from the SubKonshus CEO, Konshens. Titled “Don Daddy (SuperCat Style)” and produced by Shane Brown on the “Greatest Creation Riddim“, Konz pays tribute to Deejay SuperCat and his 20+ year old song, “Don Dada“. Konz borrowed a little of SuperCat’s flow over this production where he spoke about being a champion, his start in the music business, name drops his SubK team, and also shows respect to the foundation deejays like Lady Saw, Josey Wales, Bounty Killa and Shabba Ranks. Great effort here, It would be cool to hear a remix of this with the Don Dada himself. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW MUSIC: @GrungGaadZilla – Mama (Gone But Not Forgotten)

Standard

00-bounty-killer-mother-miss-ivyWhile many are spending the day with their moms, many aren’t so fortunate to have that opportunity. Today Bounty Killa dedicates his new single to his late mother, Miss Ivy. Titled “Mama (Gone But Not Forgotten)” and produced by Digital One Productions, Bounty recalls the moments he had with his mother and promises to live and pass on the lessons he was taught and thanks her for being around. Not a bad song here, I hope this uplifts many who no longer have their moms around. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

KOBeing one of the top Hip Hop acts in North America, Kardinal Offishall has always reached out to the land of his heritage, Jamaica. From collaborating with top Dancehall acts to incorporating Dancehall styles in his songs, Kardinal always managed to keep a close link to Canada and Jamaica. Tonight on Onstage he spoke about his new position at Universal Music, his recent nomination at the JUNO Awards, his upbringing, collaborating with Bounty Killa that gave him his break in Jamaica, promoting new music on the island, and creating a movement to help Caribbean artists, designers, and producers to bring their talent to a larger audience. Great interview here, Kardinal also premiered the music video for his “Tattoo/Rude Bwoy” single which was shot in Jamaica. I commend him for donating to the Clonmel Primary and Junior High as well.
