Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from a great singer, Boris Gardiner. Titled “Every Nigger Is A Star” and produced by Leal Records in 1973, this was created in the era of Blaxploitation Films and strong Black Pride. Boris created this song as an effort to bring a positive tone to the word “Nigger” the same way Hip Hop music has been doing today in various songs. Boris also sang about loneliness, reflecting on Africa, and acceptance and recognition of the black man. The song was featured on the soundtrack that he and his brother Barrington were contracted to make for the movie of the same name. The movie was made also in an effort to bring a change to the word, but turned out to be a huge flop in Theaters.

NEW MUSIC: @KonshensSojah – Don Daddy (SuperCat Style)

Standard

Konshens__MTVIGGY_001Today’s new music comes from the SubKonshus CEO, Konshens. Titled “Don Daddy (SuperCat Style)” and produced by Shane Brown on the “Greatest Creation Riddim“, Konz pays tribute to Deejay SuperCat and his 20+ year old song, “Don Dada“. Konz borrowed a little of SuperCat’s flow over this production where he spoke about being a champion, his start in the music business, name drops his SubK team, and also shows respect to the foundation deejays like Lady Saw, Josey Wales, Bounty Killa and Shabba Ranks. Great effort here, It would be cool to hear a remix of this with the Don Dada himself. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @OnstageTV Interviews SuperCat

Standard

SC

Before making his much anticipated return to Sting, Super Cat had a sit down with Winford Williams to speak on a few things. Here he spoke about his return to Jamaica after many years, his reasons for staying away for so long, sleeping in the cemetery, toting a gun back in the days, growing up in Kingston, his musical career including the infamous Sting clash between him and Ninja Man and much more. Great interview and it’s really good that Super Cat came back and performed in Jamaica. I hope this is an opening for more performances as he was really missed.
