What has been teased since the beginning of time (sorry Unruly Boss lol), Popcaan finally gives the people the highly anticipated follow up to his “Yiy Change Mixtape“. Linking up with Chromatic, we get the “Yiy Change Fixtape“! Consisting of 32 tracks all curated by Creep and Travis Chromatic, Popcaan gives us plenty reasons why the long wait was worth it. With features from Jada Kingdom, Skillibeng, Preme, French Montana, Quada, Baker Steez, Tommy Lee, PartyNextDoor, Dane Ray, Masicka, Unruly Cuz, Drake and more, this is a celebration of a great musical journey Popcaan has traveled so far. From Gaza, to Unruly, to OVO, the “Prefect” has grown a lot, and is making boss moves.
Junior Reid is not only a Reggae legend, he’s also a Hip Hop legend when you think about it. He has enjoyed a run in the last 15+ years that saw him being the go to artist for hooks and verses on tracks by Fabolous, The Game, MIMS, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne and more. While he still stays true to his Reggae roots, he tackles the emerging NY Drill movement on, “Bag Alert“.
Released through Massive B and produced by Bobby Konders, Junior Reid gets to the money with fellow artists Chedda Boss and Scrilla in an exhibition of the OG keeping up with the young boys, without missing his steps. Don’t expect to hear Junior Reid rapping here, he gives us that pure delivery that gave him so many hits over the years. With a 40+ year career, it’s still good that he can embrace the new generations of artists. R.I.P. Pop Smoke, and free Bobby Shmurda!
In a world where a pandemic is forcing divisions, 5 artists made a move promoting unity. Repping St. James, St. Mary, Spanish Town, and Portmore, Runkus called up Kabaka Pyramid, Munga Honorable, Royal Blu, and Jesse Royal for “5Gs“! With a Mykal “Kush” Cushnie directed video, the quintet not only showed that they could join forces at this time, but display their prowess in the lyrical arts as they share social commentary on the happenings in the world today. This collaboration can only be described as one that’s “Badder than Covid 19“!
With each artist being dominant in their respective fields, this is just one of the few collaborations that we expect to see in the coming months. Covid 19 may have slowed things down, but nothing can overpower the strength and reach of the music. Spray Lysol on their lies, wash your hands so you don’t catch the corruption bug, hold the faith, and remember that “Black Lives Matter“! Check out the video below, and share with a friend.

Admit it, you still have Chronixx’s “Cool As The Breeze/Friday” on repeat. You should be as it’s one of the hottest songs out. Chronixx knew what he was doing when he released this track in the summer. Going further with it, he makes his 3rd official appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” with a performance of the track.
Though not sharing the “Fallon Tonight” set, Chronixx performs the track straight from Jamaica accompanied by Evan Mason a.k.a. Evan Keyz, and a “criss” Toyota Corolla! Handling it in one take, Chronixx dazzles, and continues to raise his flag for Jamaican music. Imagine the reception from the crowd if he was to perform this at a stage show? Covid 19 really put a damper on a lot of things. If you missed the launch of “Cool As The Breeze/Friday”, check it out here.
