Earlier today, U.S. Rapper Fabolous premiered his Thanksgiving Mixtape, “Summertime Shootout“. Produced by Sonaro, this features Rapper Rich Homie Quan and listeners were treated to a back and forth between both artists. What listeners didn’t expect though was a closing display of deejaying from Dancehall ArtistKonshens. Over the Hot Wax Riddim from the 90s (big up Franz for the reminder), Konshens left a memorable mark on track 7. A bit disappointed that he wasn’t credited on the tape. Fabolous’Mixtape is now available on Datpiff but you can check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

This Mixtape was the perfect trip down memory lane for an 80s baby like me. It brought me back to the good old days of listening to Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg while driving around Kingston with my Uncle.
Carnival 2016 is well on the horizon so you know that means loads of new Soca hits to usher any Socaphile into the season. Shane Talon is another 13thStreetPromotions find and I think his mixes are simply superb. This one is no different.

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.
Repping Spanish Town today is Recording Artist Scott British. On his “Hvrsh (Harsh) Life” Freestyle, Scott borrows Future’s “Commas” and drops lines on his fast lifestyle, his ambitions, and putting in work to achieve success. With a fast flow on this one, this is an artist that you should pay attention to. Get familiar with Scott British by checking out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
It’s all about the mystery package in Nomad Carlos’ new video off his “Distants EP“. Titled “One Way Route” and directed by David DaCosta, we see Nomad heading into the town with a package when he suddenly met in a car crash that resulted in someone retrieving the mentioned package and taking off before being shot in the back by an unknown assailant. Given the various points in the video, Nomad’s package has something to do with the kidnapping of a young lady he was having a conversation with in the beginning. While the video may slightly confuse a few, this could be one piece to Nomad’s vision in future videos. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Dancehall Artist Popcaan has been a person of interest in the Hip Hop circles lately. From his contribution to Pusha T’s “Blocka“, to being affiliated with Drake’s OVO camp, to working with Young Thug, and now being sampled on NorwayProducer Matoma and Rapper Wale’s new track. The single, titled “Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice)“, this is a feel good track featuring Wale dropping some chill lyrics over a Caribbean tinged production with Popcaan’s vocals from “Everything Nice” adding some more Island flavour. With the right push, this could be a big single and another great look for the “Unruly Boss“. Something to spin a few times over the Heroes Day Weekend and beyond. The single is also available on iTunes. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Hopping on the popular “Hotline Bling” track today is Jamaican Rapper, Vindon. Renaming it “Highest“, Vinny flips the single into an ode to Marijuana and states that only the best of herbs can enter his grinder and his papers. The things weed can do. Blaze one for Vindon as he prepares to release his “2020 EP” in a few weeks. Send him a few bags too so he can pass a few stars. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
After blazing the airwaves and the streets for months, there is finally a visual for Jamie XX, Young Thug and Popcaan’s “Good Times (I Know There’s Gonna Be)“. Directed by Rollo Jackson, we see Jamie getting the crowd hype with the single in one location, Young Thug vibing in another, and Popcaan chilling on a balcony. Nice visual, while I like the placements of “Good Times“, I was disappointed in not hearing Popcaan’s verse in this. What I’ve found out recently is that this single has been featured in the soundtrack of NBA Live 16 so big ups to the “Unruly Boss” on the achievement. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Hopping on Anju Blaxx’s “Mildew Riddim” today is Blu Rok Rapper, Vindon.

Vindon has been dropping tracks here and there over the past few weeks and has revealed that he’s working on a new EP titled “2020“. What do you think of the track?
