When Jamaica’s involved in something, it’s gonna be great. Tonight, BET kicked off their annual Hip Hop Awards. While they’ve featured some of the best in music, many were waiting for the much anticipated “Reggae Cypher“!

Featuring Shenseea, Bounty Killa, Beenie Man, Skip Marley, Koffee, with ZJ Liquid handling the DJ role, the artists did what they had to do over Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s classic “Welcome To JamRock“, and represented Jamaica and Dancehall. Given that Covid 19 is still around, the Cypher had to be pre-recorded for broadcast. Can you imagine if all artists were performing live? Lots of high energy would be given. Big up the artists, another one for Jamaica!

Dancehall & Reggae Music continue to influence many worldwide whether through the various sounds, lyrics, or even some of the people who create from the genres.

While the album features a host of tracks for every flavour, it’s the opening track that will surprise and awe many. On “Welcome To JamRoc“, the opening vocals come courtesy of Dancehall Artist Quick Cook, while the following production samples Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’sWelcome To JamRock“, and Ini Kamoze’sWorld A Music“.

.@LupeFiasco Tries Patois, & Teams Up With Damian Marley On New Album, “DROGAS WAVE”


If you’re a Hip Hop head, then you’re familiar with Chicago Rapper Lupe Fiasco. He has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West and Jay Z, and gave us hits like “Superstar“, “Kick, Push“, and “The Show Goes On“. Recently, he released his 7th studio album, “DROGAS WAVE” with enough bars to keep fans happy till the next project. What made this project more interesting, is Lupe tapping into some Jamaican influences here. On “Gold vs the Right Things to do“, he utilizes patois throughout, and although it may make some of us cringe, he drops some serious lines in this one to make up for it (he did a better job than these Actors in this article). On “Kingdom” he teams up with another potent lyricist, Damian “Junior Gong” Marley as they unleash more consciousness into the world. For those familiar with Lupe, this project is a great listen and has garnered positive reviews so far. If you’re new here and into lyrics, you can’t go wrong with Lupe.
