@MrLevy411 Stole The Show At @ReggaeSumfest 2016!


Platinum Camp Records CEO Daddy Biggs and the team behind Reggae Sumfest 2016 presented for the first time ever, Barrington Levy and Beenie Man together on stage in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Together they performed their mega hit single “Murderer” which sent the crowd in a frenzy during the historic performance. It became a diplomatic affair as Biggs arranged for Rapper Shyne to fly to Jamaica from Belize to join Levy a.k.a. “Mellow Canary” for a surprise performance of their hit records “Bad Boys” and “Bonnie and Shyne”. The crowd erupted as the Hip Hop and Reggae Artists joined forces. It was a night of sheer pandemonium to see the two “bad boys” walk on stage for a final showdown.

In another interesting move, Daddy Biggs has arranged a Latin American and a European tour for Levy in the final quarter of 2016 which commences in Chile in October. Barrington Levy is also promoting his latest single “G.S.O.A.T”, which means “Greatest Survivor of All Time”. The song is an excellently crafted masterpiece that is set to be released on August 6th to commemorate the great survivors of Jamaica and its Independence.

@Mavado_Gully, @PopcaanMusic, @KingBeenieMan, @DiGenius1 Featured On @Drake’s “Views”


It’s no secret that Hip Hop Artist Drake is a fan of Jamaica’s music culture. From his choice of slang, to his affiliations, to his hometown being chock full of the Jamaican influence, it’s only right that his “Views” album gets some of the essence. Off the recently released album, Dancehall Artist Mavado is featured on Views’ 2nd track, “9“. “9” features a sample from the Deejay’s 2007 single “Dying” off his “Gangsta For Life” debut album. “Dying” was produced by DASECA Productions and features Serani. It’s not the first time both Artists have crossed paths as Mavado played a role in Drake’sFind Your Love” video off “Thank Me Later“, and Drake was a guest during Mavado’s set at “Britjam 2011“. “Views” also sampled Beenie Man’sTear Off Mi Garment” on an updated version of “Controlla” which was previously leaked with Dancehall Artist Popcaan. “Controlla” also gave writing credits to Jamaican Producer Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor and Supa Dups. “Tear Off Mi Garment” was produced by Patrick Roberts and was released in 1995 on the “Urkle Riddim“. Popcaan’sLove Yuh Bad” is also sampled on the Rihanna assisted “Too Good” and also includes Supa Dups in the writing credits. The track was produced by Dre Skull and is featured on Popcaan’s debut album, “Where We Come From“. Popcaan is currently affiliated with Drake’s OVO group. “Views” is now available on iTunes.

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 3)


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 3 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.
