We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look At @Ishawna’s “All Over Again”!


It’s Thursday, so that means another post in our “Quick Throwback” series! Before being a controversial figure in Dancehall, before emphasizing some “Equal Rights & Justice” and encouraging ladies to be a “Cheerful Giver“, Ishawna Smith was on the grind trying to be heard. Today we go back to the year 2008 to check out her track, “All Over Again”. Released through Foota Hype Music, Ishawna speaks about falling in love all over again with her lover. With looking back at the good times playing a big part, Ishawna is determined to make things right with him and make their relationship stronger than ever.

Under the guide of Bounty Killa and an affiliation with DJ Foota Hype, Ishawna moved on to being one of the popular figures on the Dancehall scene, and one of the more controversial ones thanks to the various subject matter in her lyrics.

Hear the track below and check us out next Thursday for another feature in our “Quick Throwback” series.

Is Dancehall Dying? (13th Street Rants Ep. 2)


You frowned or scratched your head when you saw the title. It’s ok (lol). With Dancehall Music seeing a lot of gimmicks, beef, drama (most of them unnecessary) over the years, it hasn’t really been seeing favourable returns. Instead, we have outsiders enjoying our musical styles with most not paying homage, or even helping out some of the talent here. While they can’t shoulder majority of the blame, many Artists, Producers, DJs and Industry folk are the culprits as they failed to innovate, hold back many promising opportunities, and failed to give the music that needed “push”.

Today, we speak on a few things that turn us (and many others) off about this genre that has the potential to do even more, but is being held back. Respect to all the Artists and DJs who are trying in the meantime. We love Dancehall, but it has a tendency to be a little stubborn in thinking. Check out our rant below. You can hear our 1st episode here.
