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.

Today’s new music comes from Canadian singer Lucas DiPasquale. You may remember him from gaining quite a following for covering a few of Deejay Popcaan’s singles. Here he steps out with “Make My Rounds“. Produced by Mini of E5 Records on the “Beach Life Riddim“, Lucas speaks on leaving Canada to visit Jamaica and the things he’s dealing with back home, mainly being apart from his lady. He also tells his lady that all the moves he’s making will pay off in the end, and he lets listeners know that his cover video that made him popular is getting old and he needs to bring new things to the table. Not a bad effort here from the singer, I’d like to hear this live very soon. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
