PRESS RELEASE: @NomadCarlos Releases “Los Pollos Hermanos” (L.P.H.)


LPH

“The finest ingredients are brought together with love and care, then slow cooked to perfection. Yes, the old ways are still best at Los Pollos Hermanos. But don’t take my word for it. One taste, and you’ll know.”—Gustavo Fring

Thanks to benchmark releases from Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Kanye West, hip-hop has restored its once prominent ties to the music of Jamaica. Nomad Carlos is one of the only hip-hop artist from Jamaica, creating music fused with the cultures of Reggae and Dancehall. “What’s more authentic than me doing it?” offers the veteran artist, “Not to sound cocky, but I’m truly from there”.

Listening, let alone making hip-hop is not the norm in Kingston. At the age of five, when the Miami, Florida-born MC named Damon (“Nomad” spelled backwards) moved back to his parents’ homeland, he absorbed the world around him. Living in the capital city’s uptown section, and schooled in one its poorest ghettos of Downtown Kingston, Nomad Carlos was a student of the game; both in and out the classroom—merging Jamaican’s own Reggae and Dancehall compositions with the American art form and applying it to his very unique surroundings.

As one of the only working hip-hop artists from Jamaica, a decade later (and with several projects already under his belt) Nomad Carlos has proved that his vision was in fact crazy innovative.

Now focused on his new upcoming full-length LP, Distants (which will be released on 4-28-15), Nomad Carlos releases the first-single, “L.P.H.” (Los Pollos Hermanos) from the project; which takes a concept from “Breaking Bad” and cleverly flips it on its head.

Scotty
I make rebellious raw music that real people can feel. – @YoungIgnorance
Expression comes in various forms. For us, #PayAttention seeks to bring to the forefront what many fail to see on a day-to-day basis. No! I am not saying that you should be tuned in 24/7/365. But when we sound that gong & set charges to that stage, you’re going to seriously wish that you hadn’t waited to get involved. Enough programming, I’m looking forward to seeing you at Eutopia on March 28th.

Scotty + The Dreamkillers has much to say.

Q
I been following you around on Soundcloud for many moons, it’s great to finally get a chance to see you make a display on the #PayAttention stage. Are you amped?
A: Much respect bro! Trust me I’ve been working so hard and I’m ready to kill the stage so I am definitely amped for March 28!
[Sidenote: Vote for my bro Five Steez in ‘Take Back the Mic’ on Amp.it… shameless plug!]

NEW MUSIC: @GullyCash – Kingston 20 Freestyle


GullyCash

Repping where he’s from today is Rapper Gully Cash with a new freestyle. Over the Wu Tang Clan’s “Ice Cream” beat comes “Kingston 20“. Here he gave an idea of his day to day life, rules he abides by in his neighbourhood, showing respect to his crew and the “Gs” while effortlessly flowing over the old school production. Gully Cash has been staying busy since his last performance at Pay Attention and he may have another full project in the works. Stay tuned. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Vinny

It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon

Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.

VinDon of BluRok is present.

Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance

A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.

Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?
