Tonight, Rapper Five Steez welcomes one and all to his home with his new video, “Welcome“. Directed by Nathan Cowan of Caribbean Films with assistance from Bubbla G, Rocket Media and The Talent Inc., this was shot in Half Way Tree and Trench Town. Here Steez drops lyrics about his hometown, the activities that take place daily and of course give a history lesson on some of the children who grew up from there to play an influential part in the development of Hip Hop and the popularity of Reggae Music. We also get cameo appearances from some who play a part in the growth of the “First CoastHip Hop Movement. Great video here and I like the take on the black and white video with coloured accents. Five Steez’sThese Kingston Times” will hit the Internet on October 14 but you can preorder now here. 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

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.
