Who run di place? In a new collaborative skit with Kyng Taj and Jnel Comedy, Taj is being escorted through a Community by a friend and gets introduced to various men who are about that badman life. Given the impression that each person he meets “Run Di Place“, Taj is quickly corrected and their roles are listed. Who really runs di place? Once you hear the name “Popnut“, you’ll see what happens next. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Dropping something new today is Recording Artist K-Don. Titled “Run Up“, this was produced by Millaweek on the Third Degree Riddim and here K-Don loads up more clips and uses the Riddim as a shooting range to send a warning to his foes. This single might have you reaching for the Bullet-proof Vest before entering the booth. Don’t run up. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Dropping something new is Dancehall artist Strykk. Titled “The Issue” and produced by SupaBad Music Group, the Deejay makes bullet points on who a real bad man is and what the life entails. He also gets at those who claim the title and make a mockery of it. Lots of feelings might get hurt and feathers ruffled on this track but Strykk knows who he is and won’t take back his statements. Look to add this track to your iTunes library on April 28. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
[In respect to the 17th anniversary of Biggie Smalls’ passing, my Oldies Sunday selection features a song he sampled on his first album.]
Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Deejay Pan Head. Titled “Gunman Tune” with production by Lloyd “John John” James Jr. on the “Soap Riddim” and distribution by Father & Son Records in 1991, we hear Pan Head paying tribute to all the gun men in Jamaica while showing disrespect to informants (or snitches). He also speaks on the different communities that the gunmen reside in, the types of weaponry they have in their artillery, how they use them and the type of friends gunmen and informants should have.
Dropping some badman lyrics today is “Di Stinga” Black Ryno. Titled “My Trigga“, this is his remix to the popular “My Nigga/Hitta” track by rappers YG, Young Jeezy, and Rich Homie Quan. Here he changes the topic and speaks about his weapon and lets us know that he’s always prepared for anything. Not a bad effort from Black Ryno, having heard a few remixes of the original he handled this well and continues to be consistent in releasing singles. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s new music comes from Junior Reid, Brooklyn rapper Uncle Murda and the World Boss Vybz Kartel. Titled “Guns Dem Load” and produced by JR Records, we hear them reaching out to the ghetto youths and letting them know that even though times are hard they don’t have to take the badman route. Ghetto yutes wise up for the world is yours. It’s dread out a road but positive energy is needed. Great hearing three different artists coming together for something good. The song is currently available on iTunes. What do you think of the song? Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
