Protoje really had our attention in 2016.
With the release of his “Royalty Free EP”, appearances at Coachella, his launch of the “New Wave” concert series, and other various happenings, people are still asking if he’s dropping a follow up to the outstanding “Ancient Future” album anytime soon. While no word on that yet, Protoje has been feeling a lil on the crimson side late last year and it now manifests itself as his 2017 debut single, “Blood Money“.
It’s no secret that Hip Hop and Dancehall have been close siblings over the years. With the increasing popularity of the “Trap Music” genre, there have been more Artists crossing over to get a new audience and test out a new style in their craft. In Jamaica, it has seen its increase starting in late 2015 and newcomer Jermani aims to solidify his name out there with his “Pop Champagne Mix“. With DJ Mac overseeing, Jermani lets listeners in on his “Rude Boy Ting” lifestyle over various original and popular Production. He recently spoke on his debut project stating that it’s his way of bringing a unique sound to the game, showing listeners that he can be versatile in subject matter, and aims to stand out not only in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene, but worldwide.

Jamaican Hip Hop Super Group The Council, which comprises of Five Steez, Inztinkz, Nomad Carlos and The Sickest Drama, is currently working on the “Nothing Else Matters” Album. With over a year since their debut single and a few weeks since their 2nd single, they aim to hold over fans with their 2 track EP titled “Forgotten Parables“. Produced by Inztinkz and featuring Arofat, Julio Sluggz and Wallabee, the Group explained that these songs were made years prior to the formation of the Group and it was only right to set them free and show listeners that it was written for them to work together exclusively. “Nothing Else Matters” sees a 2017 release but for now, check out the EP below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
