NEW VIDEO: @OnstageTV Interviews @IKonTyquan x @BoomBoomGully

Standard

Ikon2

With a slew of new Dancehall artists finding new ways to gain popularity in the music scene, many see the actions as great marketing, or a gimmick. With his name being in the media for his actions recently, IKon, accompanied by Selector Boom Boom, joined Winford Williams on Onstage to discuss a few things. Here they spoke about Radio DJs not giving new artists a chance to make their music be heard, suggesting those DJs to hit the streets and find new talent, IKon seeing the results of his stunt, why he did it, not wanting to be seen as a gimmick artist, working on new music and much more. A decent interview here, IKon sure made many pay attention to his actions, but will he last as a Dancehall artist? Only time will tell. Future artists, please let your music be heard in the proper way. Holla at us the Bloggers and Youtubers! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Mixtape: @Fiyahrama23 x @UnitedEmpire_JA Present: The New West Vol. 1

Standard

IMG_1224

When you hear “West Side“, many would be quick to refer to California where Hip Hop greats like Dr. Dre and Tupac enjoyed the prime of their musical careers. Today, the West refers to the western part of Jamaica, home to the United Empire and with Texas based DJ Fiyahrama, they release the first in their “The New West” series. Consisting of 17 tracks, this showcases the musical efforts from Slim I.D., MoulaDiDon, Twig, Sauce, GMoney I.D., Kanabis, Tazz, Minx, Super Pugz, and JayDaFilly. The United Empire lets it be known that Hip Hop is not just an American thing or should only reside on the East side of Jamaica, they set up shop and want their turn of the spotlight. Not a bad compilation here as they do hold their own on the tracks. The only problem I had with this tape was the “Pull up” clip being used way too many times. Get this one on your playlists and hear what the West has to say. Check out the tape below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
