If you know you’re grateful for the blessings, put up your hands right now and give thanks! Recording Artist Koffee has been on a roll in such a short span of time. Since her tribute to Usain Bolt going viral, she has been enjoying a massive buzz thanks to her singles that followed. We’ve shown her love as one of the female Artists you should watch out for earlier this year, and she’s climbing to the highest peak. With the announcement of her signing to Columbia Records recently, we know she has a lot in store to present to the world. Kicking off 2019 early, she unleashed her major label debut track titled, “Toast“! Produced by Izy Beats and Walshy Fire, we find Koffee speaking on her progress so far, giving thanks for the blessings that have followed, and of course entertaining us with her unique delivery. We also get a video which features cameos from Chronixx and Protoje, and is shot in the style of old school home videos thanks to Xavier Damase. Gratitude is a must. Off the soon to be released “Rapture EP“, check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Stepping out with a new single are the likes of “Miss Tight Up Skirt” a.k.a. Samantha J, and “Miss Try Me” a.k.a. Dej Loaf. Titled “League Of My Own“, we hear the ladies speak on being their own persons, how they roll, being unstoppable, and of course being in their own league. Interesting collaboration between the two but they’ve managed to make it work. I liked that little sample of the “Punanny Riddim” later in the song. Get the single today on iTunes. Is there a Samantha J album on the way? Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
The term “Dancehall in jail” is slowly becoming an actual thing with entertainers like Vybz Kartel and Busy Signal seeing jail time, many fear that Dancehall music will not see better days. As an entertainer who has seen great success for many years, Deejay Mad Cobra had a chat with Winford Williams on a few things. Here he spoke about returning to the U.S., being a victim of gun violence in 2010 and losing his visa, thoughts on Vybz Kartel’s imprisonment, walking away from violence, getting the big break with “Flex” and being signed to Columbia Records in the 90s, being absent from the spotlight for a while, studying Shabba Ranks performances, Sting and much more. Great interview here and a history lesson too, Cobra has always been a respected artist and veteran of his craft and he’s still churning out hits.

Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from one of Dancehall’s foundation artists and the most popular albino artist, King Yellow Man. Titled “Zungguzungguguzungguzeng” (Yes LONG name), it was produced by “Junjo” Lawes on the “Diseases” Riddim. Yellow Man showcases his rhyming abilities all while stating he shouldn’t be taken for a child. The rhyming style is reminiscent of the toasting rappers used to do at parties in the 1980s.
