OLDIES SUNDAY: Determine – Rappin Up Rhymes (2001)


It may be a wet weekend thanks to a couple Tropical Storms throughout the Caribbean, but we’re giving thanks for life, and praying for those who are battling the bad Weather. We hope you all have been staying safe in your own way. We’re bringing a different vibe on today’s Oldies Sunday. Today’s selection comes from Reggae/Dancehall Artist Determine with the track, “Rappin Up Rhymes“.

Produced by Steely & Clevie on the “Nine Night Riddim” and released in 2001 through Studio 2000, Determine stepped out on a song that showcased his unique flow, and his ability to control any Riddim that was thrown his way. Determine had a few hits in the 90s, and he presented himself as an Artist that stood out no matter what. “Rappin Up Rhymes” was just one of his many examples, and the track was a hit. In promotion of “Rappin Up Rhymes”, a music video directed by Llewellyn O’Reggio was released. The video found Determine chilling with the ladies at the River, interacting with many people in his hometown of Portland including his fellow Rastafarian brethren, and we see an appearance from members of his family including a young Runkus. Determine is still an active member in the Jamaican music scene, and many of his fans still remember “Rappin Up Rhymes” and his previous releases.

Marcia Griffiths’ “Electric Slide” Featured In New @SheHulkOfficial Episode!


Watched any good TV shows this week? Earlier this week, Marvel’s new series “She-Hulk: Attoryney At Law” debuted a new episode. The Comedy/Action series focuses on Jennifer Walters, who is a Lawyer who specializes in Superhero cases, and ends up becoming a Superhero herself called, “She-Hulk“. In the newest episode, a familiar Jamaican song was featured.

During episode 6 of “She-Hulk” called “Just Jen“, Reggae Legend Marcia Griffiths’ 1989 hit, “Electric Slide” was featured during the episode’s fight scene between She-Hulk and her rival Mary MacPherran a.k.a. Tatiana. Originally called “Electric Boogie” which was recorded and produced by the late Bunny Wailer in 1976, and released in 1980 and 1989, “Electric Slide” lived a few lives over the years. While it was a minor hit for Wailer in the late 70s and 80s, Marcia Griffiths’ 1983 version of the record was released and became a minor hit as well. It wasn’t until 1989 when a remixed version that was featured on Griffiths’ “Carousel” album quickly made it a dance staple around the world. The new version gave birth to the “Electric Slide” dance, which became the official dance for cookouts, family gatherings, Weddings, and various celebrations and events over the years.

If you haven’t seen it yet, “She-Hulk: Attorney At Law” is available for viewing now on Disney+.

.@KyngTavii Shows Off Another Side To Him On “This Is Not A Love Song”.


Recently, Comedian/Recording Artist Kyng Tavii had a moment of controversy. He revealed that he worked with currently incarcerated Dancehall Artist Tommy Lee Sparta on a few songs. Their working relationship however ended on a bad note, and Tavii chose to share his information after being accosted by associates of Tommy Lee. While Tavii faced some opposition and doubt that his talents were good enough to use in collaboration with the Dancehall Artist, he chose to share original material that would prove that he was legitimate. The track “This Is Not A Love Song” is one of his original pieces.

Produced by PeeKay Beatz, Kyng Tavii shows off another side to his sound on the R&B-tinged “This Is Not A Love Song”. Geared towards the ladies, Tavii puts together slick lyrics, a melodic delivery, and a great command of the original production for a song that sounds like a hit. Even the people who bashed him behind the scenes can’t deny that Kyng Tavii is legit with the music. Don’t worry, Kyng Tavii will be back with the Comedy soon, just get familiar with the music.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Brick & Lace – Love Is Wicked (2007)


For today’s Oldies Sunday selection, we go back to a time when Trucker Hats were back in style, Von Dutch was a brand people were familiar with, Jamaica was trending Internationally thanks to a few great Jamaican Artists, and this Jamaican girl group were on the verge of blowing up overseas. That girl group originally consisted of sisters Nailah, Nyanda, and Tasha Thorbourne, but was later reduced to just Nailah and Nyanda, and they were called, “Brick & Lace“! Today, we check out “Love Is Wicked“.

Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden on the “Diwali Riddim and released in 2007, Brick & Lace spoke about a love that despite being everything they wanted and they’d give their all for it, that person that gave the love never belonged to them, and has resulted in hurt. The song’s upbeat production made it a danceable one, and the hook was very catchy. The deliveries on “Love Is Wicked” stood out thanks to Nailah’s singing and Nyanda’s singjaying, and it quickly became a hit in Jamaica, and parts of the world.

“Love Is Wicked” successfully crossed over to the International market, and was featured in the soundtrack to “Bratz: The Movie“, got featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live“, was included in the soundtrack for the “Sims 2” video game, and has enjoyed a number of remixes. Brick & Lace capitalized off the success of “Love Is Wicked” with a debut album of the same name which was released in 2007.

Since the release of “Love Is Wicked”, Brick & Lace went on to release a few more singles while being signed to Akon’s Kon Live label, formed a songwriting team with sisters Tasha and Candace called Bloodline, launched solo careers (Nailah goes by “Nyla” while Nyanda used her name), and the duo is currently enjoying TikTok love as “Love Is Wicked” has been gaining viral success since 2021, and grew even more thanks to TikToker Cynesse. Will the Thorbourne sisters return to the scene as a duo? Who knows, but “Love Is Wicked” remains a classic.

Thank You Brick & Lace For This Classic!
