Born in Saint Vincent & The Grenadines and based in Brooklyn, New York, Recording Artist J Kinggz has been on the grind and making his voice be heard. We’ve featured him some time ago with the single, “Birthday” featuring HighOnFi, but he has since followed up with the Jewelry store anthem, “Patek” with a promise that a project was on the way. That promise was kept as he released the “30 Days EP (The Life Changing Project)“. Featuring four tracks, this came together during a very serious time in his life. With freedom on the line, the best thing he could do during that time was pray and create (and he spoke it in the paperwork for this EP). With Producers such as RazsyBeats, Khalijah, and JSebastian providing the sounds for the lyrics and features from J.R.E. and DTG, J Kinggz gives listeners a bit of what’s to come as he’s currently working on more music including a follow up project. Sometimes when your back is against the wall, you just have to fight back in any way you can. Big up the Vincy Boss. Check out the EP below, and share with a friend.

Bless up Jamaica and New York City. Today we’re witnessing a historic moment thanks to Chris Matic, a Jamaican born Rapper who resides in Brooklyn, New York! Having been on the grind for some time, his day finally arrived once he signed with IB Music, a division of Invisible Bully which was started by Damion “D-Roc” Butler and Diddy. Since his signing, Chris Matic has been showing up at various outlets dropping bar after bar, and impressing many. Today is no different however as he checks in with the legendary DJ Funk Flex at Hot 97, and he delivered! Over Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” and Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” Instrumentals, he lets us know he’s not in the 360 deal life, rolling with D-Roc and Diddy, and showcasing why he’s one of the nicest out there. Of course he had let the patois sneak in and represent as always. Get familiar with him if you haven’t yet. Check out the video below, and share with a friend.

It’s dope when you can find the perfect Producer for your tracks. Finding one to score your Film, is something special. Recently Rapper/Chef Dylan Golden released his Short Film, “Half Dead“, which takes you through the journey of a young man of color who is exasperated with the onslaughts of current social injustices we are facing in America and around the world. Filmed in Brooklyn, scoring for this Film was done Dylan (who also directed it), and Jamaican Producer Kris Karz! While the two are no strangers to collaborating with each other, both have combined their powers to spread the messages injected throughout this piece. The Film was released in conjunction with the Rapper’s new album, “The Revolution Of The Heart“.

This is for the bad gyal, rude gyal, cute gyal, stush gyal, new gyal dem! New York based Artists Alex Mali and MeLo X (of the duo Electric Punanny) bring the Caribbean vibes in their new single and video, “Hoity Toity“! Produced by Ninease, Alex and MeLo deliver a fun song that’ll have you thinking about the Summer cookouts, the block parties, the Caribbean parades, and the new fashion for the season. The video, directed by Thrice Cooked Media however, brings all the elements from those into one colourful, flag waving, gun finger saluting, Caribbean backyard party! While Alex brings the melody, MeLo brings the deejaying and they spread that Island love to the world! For those not up to speed, “Hoity Toity” is Jamaican (or mainly Caribbean) term for being a snob, or bougie/bourgeoisie. If you a bad gyal, please back it up like a Dumpa Truck! Keep this on rotation as the cold time creeps up for that instant heat! Check out “Hoity Toity” below!
Introducing to the Blog is a NY based Artist by the name of Alex Mali. She has been around for a while releasing some dope tunes, and she proudly reps her West Indian background (Jamaica & Trinidad). For those familiar with the Joey BadA$$ & PRO ERA, you may have heard her on a track or two. With some fire on the way, she gives listeners a taste with a Freestyle titled “Livin“. Produced by KDVG, she describes her tune as an “expression of Parental disapproval” as she points out a few clashes with her Mother. We love our Moms, but there are times where we’re just not gonna see eye to eye with ordeals and expectations. If you know Caribbean Mothers, you know there weren’t just regular arguments. We may be a lil rebellious at times, but we love you Mama! I’m sorry. Check out the track below.
Many have thrown dirt his way over the years, but Recording Artist/Fur Expert Safaree stands tall regardless. Recently, he stopped by the Hot 97 Studio to rap a few bars for Funkmaster Flex. As a part of the DJ’s Freestyle series, Safaree fires off in episode 78. From changing furs during, to sending a jab at fellow Jamaican, popular Youtube personality DJ Akademiks, we’re surprised he didn’t throw his signature “Suck ya mada” during. Not a bad episode here, Safaree makes sure he adds his “Stuntman” charisma throughout. Shout out Messiah the “Fur God“. Catch Safaree in a city near you, or a TV near you. Check out the video below.
