Major Myjah has been riding high off his own wave for quite a while. While he has caught many ears with his tunes, others are just discovering the offspring of the “Warlord“, Bounty Killa. Today, along with collaborator Childish Major, “Ain’t Love” was released. Produced by Supah Mario who delivered a banging Production, we hear both Majors speak on their own episodes in this thing called “Love and Relationships“. No you can’t meet Mom, Dad, Auntie, Uncle, not even the dog. Off their upcoming “The Adventures Of Major & Major” EP, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
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.
