OLDIES SUNDAY: Terro 3000 – In My Life (2008)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Recording Artist Terro 3000 (now known as “Road Elf”), and this one is a more serious selection. Going back to the year 2008, we tune in to “In My Life“! Produced and released by Ballaz Productions, the song finds Terro 3000 reflecting on the loss of a loved one, and how it has affected his life since. The very recognizable “I Want To Know What Love Is” single by English-American Band Foreigner was sampled on this track, and assisted Terro’s lyrics throughout.

“In My Life” became a hit for Terro 3000 as many could relate to losing a loved one, and the effects from such. He went on to release more music that became minor hits, and changed his stage name to Road Elf in the process. He has also been doing some Audio and Video Production over the years as well. If you’re still getting over the loss of a loved one, don’t be afraid to seek some comfort from close friends and family members. We all have to go through this at some point in life. Hang in there!

.@KxngIzem Shares His Many Moods On Sophomore Project!


Kxng Izem gave listeners that amazing “24 Eden Garden, Kingston 10” project in 2017, but today we’re proud to present the long-awaited follow up titled, “Many Moods Of Izem“! While the debut found him searching for the truths Society failed to answer, he continues the journey on the sophomore project with questions about love, hate, betrayal, failure, corruption, ambition, life, and death. The project finds him with. many moods as he comes across a sequence of thoughts, emotions, experiences, and self-taught lessons while delivering positive messages for those who need them. The project is backed by a blend of Dancehall, Reggae, Afrobeats, and Pop sounds throughout with production by Dylan, Chrisville, and his Ten24Music imprint.

When asked about the project, Kxng Izem shared, “My aim for this project is to help people to overcome fears of not taking risks, to trust themselves, to be vigilant, to be their own motivators, to develop an understanding of circumstances that surrounds them and channel their energies into a positive outcome while tuning out the wrong frequencies they’ve become accustomed to. This project was created within two weeks during sessions of ‘Musical Venting’.”

.@LenoBanton Takes Shots At The “Pirates” On New Single!


Recording Artist Leno Banton looks to close off his 2019 in “light-speed” style, but first he had to swing the sword a few times. Who are the recipients of the attack? The ones he refers to as “Pirates” in his latest single! Produced by iotosh and Runkus, Leno Banton calls out the “Leaders” and Politicians who claim they are for the country’s people, but are just leeching away all the Nation’s resources and leaving people to suffer. The song is just one of many that call out the people in power and warn them to do away with their corruptive actions, or there will be consequences.

The youth will continue to be the voice of change in Jamaica, and very soon the walls that the elders have built will be torn down to make way for a better country. We have all suffered for too long under the tutelage of Pirates, and they need to make their exits like those who have walked the plank. Leno Banton promises more music in 2020, with a possible release of the follow up to his “REM SZN” project!

We Salute @Aidonia4thGenna’s Career In Our Latest Playlist!


If you have heard “J.O.P.!“, “Bushkash Bushkash“, “So Sick…“, “1 Voice…“, “Bad people, move move move…” and “Start di Helicopter…” at some point your Dancehall music listening sessions, then you have experienced some of Dancehall Artist Aidonia’s great works! The man born Sheldon Aitana Lawrence, has been a mainstay since his ascent onto the scene in the early 2000s. If you were looking for lyricism, a voice that commanded attention, and something new, Aidonia was one of the few who checked all three over the years and had hits to boot.

Today’s post pays tribute to the man who had folks saying “J.O.P.” over the wildly popular “Gaza” and “Gully” with the easily recognized hand sign. With our latest Playlist, we let you in on the works from “The 4th Genna Boss“! With over 6 hours of hits from bad man tunes to gal songs, the only ones didn’t make it aren’t available for streaming. With folks out here trying to discredit Aidonia’s contribution to Dancehall, you need people like to appreciate and recognize his works that weren’t in vain.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Triston Palmer – Joker Smoker (1980)


This one is for all those who have that one annoying friend (or a bunch of friends) who are just not about that Ganja life in every way. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the legendary Triston Palmer a.k.a. Tristan Palma with the track, “Joker Smoker“! Produced by Jah Thomas, this was released through the J&J label in 1980 with releases through other labels over the years. The song was also featured on Triston’s 1982 album of the same name. Throughout the track, Triston calls out those who love to be around the smokers and instead of respecting the space and culture, they became an irritation. Many can relate to this as there are those who cause money and Marijuana to be wasted, the loss of lighters and other paraphernalia, and tempers to flare up.

“Joker Smoker” became one of Triston Palmer’s most famous tracks, and has been sampled by the likes of Electronic Dance Artists Top Cat and DJ Solo, and by Dancehall Artist Aidonia who even borrowed the song’s title for his single. The song’s title continues to be used among those who are not about that Stoner life as well. Be wary of who you share your Weed with.
