It’s friday, and that means another episode in Florida/Montego Bay based Rapper Daley’s #DreamerFridayz! While he gave us a cut off his upcoming “Frustrated Dreamer” Album last week, today he flexes a lil on Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” Instrumental. Never backing down from a challenge, Daley lets Rappers from Kingston, to Montego Bay, to the US know that he’s a contender and he wants to win everything! If you can’t go toe to toe with him, be “Humble” and respect the yute! “Frustrated Dreamer” is on the way, but check out the freestyle below!
Florida/Montego Bay based Rapper Daley is currently working on a follow up to his 2016 project, “Savage“! While he has made appearances since his last release, and has kept busy co-hosting his “Vent Open Mic” series Daley felt it was time to get the ball rolling on another project titled, “Frustrated Dreamer“. To prepare listeners this time around, Daley has decided to start the “Dreamer Fridayz (or #DreamerFridayz)” series complete with freestyles and album cuts weekly.
On week 1, Daley revealed the Kokabzd designed album cover, and has released a single off the album titled, “Delirium“. Featuring a smooth sample based Production from Bobby Williams, Daley urges listeners to “Open up your mind more“. Showcasing a couple different flows, Daley takes listeners into his world as he chases his dreams, makes observations in the game, and shows that the words he pens in his notebook are “For the culture“. Sometimes conscious, sometimes savage, the Rapper promises to be even more aggressive on his next project and future “Dreamer Fridayz” offerings will shock you. “Frustrated Dreamer” sees a Summer 2017 release. Check out the track below.
Popular DJ and Producer ZJ Liquid has released the long awaited Album from Dancehall Artist, Vybz Kartel. Titled “Black & White“, features 13 hits that were produced by Liquid himself, and famed Producer Don Corleon. The tracks however date back as far as 2003, a time when Liquid’s H2O Records was established, and include “Hello Moto”, “Dem Bwoy”, “Mother In Law”, “Life Me Say”, “Fix Up”, and “Live Your Life”. The Album name is based on Kartel’s change in physical appearance over the years.
“When I decided to venture into Production, I had my objectives lined out and I was determined to make my mark in the Music Industry. Over the years, I had the opportunity to produce a few of Vybz Kartel’s hits which I have now compiled into an album,” said ZJ Liquid. The Album saw a March 10 release, and is currently distributed on all major Digital Media outlets by 21st Hapilos.
ZJ Liquid also shared that this album will give the general public a better understanding of who he is as a Producer as many fans tend to pay more attention to his DJ persona. “Many fans see me as a DJ first and Producer after. They know I am in Production but they are not aware of the altitude to which I take it. This Album will help them to recognize what Instrumentals were produced by me as well as which of their favorite Vybz Kartel tracks I’ve produced over the years,” shared ZJ Liquid. “Since its release, I have been receiving a monument of positive feedback. The fans have been supportive, and have been sharing the project on various Social Media platforms,” he added.
ZJ Liquid is optimistic that the Album will climb the charts both locally and Internationally.

Today’s video comes in the form of an Interview with Shaggy from the Breakfast Club on NY’s Power 105.1. Here he spoke about some aspects of Jamaica and misconceptions, his start in the music industry, his new album “Out Of Many One Music“, his style of music and many other topics. Interesting Interview from Shaggy although sometimes I was weirded out by the “twang” and the generic questions. That was a crazy story with him and the late James Brown. You can learn a little of his background in this interview. Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
In celebration of Reggae singer (and Protoje’s mom) Lorna Bennett’s birthday, she released the “mixtape” version of her debut album. Titled “This Is Lorna” and mixed by Rory Yaadcore, this album included her single “Breakfast In Bed” which made her the first female artist to top the Jamaica singles chart for five consecutive weeks. For many who are familiar with her work can reminisce on her hits and new listeners can be educated (and see who Protoje got his talent from). Wonderful listen from a great artist. Happy Birthday Ms. Bennett! Check out the album below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
