Words By @Sef_Jo
- One Fuck
The original. Khaos made this into a household name and it continues to beat the streets hard. As a true “trapskull”, I have to admit that I wasn’t 100% sold on “One Fuck” after its initial release. Worse, when I heard “Make Love” [after One Fuck was released as a single] and even more recently, “Don’t Remix”. What had me completely stunned though was the reception of “One Fuck” by Khaos’ core fan base. The Deception EP’s leading single is literally a social sensation that has had much of its impact on and throughout the Jamaican Twitter community. There are threads upon threads related to the hashtag #OneFuck and for that reason, I have come to understand what makes “One Fuck” successful as a single, in and of itself. With a clean version available, Khaos has been able to market the track to hardcore fans as well as to DJs [local + international] for radio spins.
- Search Fi Love
Now this… connected with me on a more personal level and just like with “One Fuck” it took me a good couple listens to fully wrap my head around the concept. I am not unfamiliar with the actual “Search For Love” but let’s discuss the immediate switch up; though the drum kit [rhythm] remains similar to the previous track, there is the sound of a harp that strikingly contrasts the way Khaos lets us know that he is in no way, shape or form interested in falling for his “One Fuck”. The contrast here depicts how sweet her touch was/is but Khaos shakes us [listeners] back to reality, this is Deception!
Recording Artist Khaos has been on a mission to become the Artist you NEED to pay attention to. With his “Deception EP” seeing a May 13th release, he has been receiving a huge following thanks to his 1st single “One Touch“, and the remix of Drake’s “One Dance” with Comedian/Recording Artist Andrew Trabass. In his preview video, he gives listeners a behind the scenes look into the creation of his project. The “Deception EP” is now available for pre-order on iTunes!

In celebration of International Weed Day, more popularly known as 4/20, Blvk H3ro presents THC (The Herb Connoisseur), a musical project dedicated to the Holy Herb.
“It is a joy to share THC with my brethren in these times of Gideon,” says Blvk H3ro, “this project aims to satisfy the craving for upliftment and higher meds at this moment in our story”.
This eclectic collection of next-generation Jamaican music is released one year after the decriminalization of Ganja in Jamaica, but after decades of oppression for those defiant of the regime.
“THC will give you a different vibration and make you look at Herb differently,” he says, “too many people have suffered under the system and I forward in this time to bring a lickle joy, inspiration and creativity, so mek we bussweh!”
The Weedp has original compositions by Blvk H3ro and productions by The Grei Show, BoomDraw & Kone, JLL and Greatest. The project also features Lord Leno (son of Burro Banton). Majority of the project was recorded at Equiknoxx studios and additional mixing and mastering done by Shotta Biggs & Kris-Karz
Blvk H3ro now joins the ranks of his idols Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Sizzla Kalonji, and their diverse musical influences can be felt throughout the WeedP.
The THC Project will be officially released at Nanook, 20 Burlington Avenue, on April 20 (4/20) along with the exciting music video for ‘Herb’.
