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.

NEW VIDEO: @DJKhaled – Ain’t Nobody Got Dubs Like This


DJK

In the Dancehall culture, one of most important aspects is the Dubplate. Vital in Soundclashes and dances, it can either make or break a Sound System. Today, via Boomshoots, DJ/Producer DJ Khaled shows off some of his most cherished Dubplates. Khaled, no stranger to the Dancehall culture, played dubs from the likes of Buju Banton, Bounty Killa, Beres Hammond, Capleton, and more. This is a great watch (and listen) here as I’ve been familiar with DJ Khaled’s presences in the Dancehall. Older fans might remember his appearances at events such as “Fully Loaded” and his contributions via mixtapes. Can he beat Wyclef for having the most expensive dubplate? Stay tuned. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Today’s Oldies Sunday selections come from two Lions of Reggae Music, Sizzla Kalonji and Jah Cure. Titled “King In This Jungle“, this was produced by Beres Hammond for his Harmony House Productions in 1998. In this song we hear the two artists speak out on those who wish to oppress people but stumble with the help of Jah. They also consider themselves Kings in a society that’s like a Jungle and encourage people to follow Jah and have more faith in the teachings.
