Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 5)

First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 5 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.

NEW MUSIC: @MasickaMusic x @ShanMarieMusic x @AddisPablo – Lighters


Today’s music comes from a “Three The Hard Way” combination of Deejay Masicka, Singer Shanique Marie, and Muscian Addis Pablo. Titled “Lighters” and produced by Equiknoxx Music, we hear Masicka deejaying about wanting a better life and celebrating it rather than suffering. Shanique handles the hook duties and Addis Pablo gives us a dope Melodica solo to help further channel the “Bird Sound Power” of Equiknoxx Music. A nice selection here which could seem odd to some. Look for its official release on August 5 on iTunes. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
