Bless up Jamaica and New York City. Today we’re witnessing a historic moment thanks to Chris Matic, a Jamaican born Rapper who resides in Brooklyn, New York! Having been on the grind for some time, his day finally arrived once he signed with IB Music, a division of Invisible Bully which was started by Damion “D-Roc” Butler and Diddy. Since his signing, Chris Matic has been showing up at various outlets dropping bar after bar, and impressing many. Today is no different however as he checks in with the legendary DJ Funk Flex at Hot 97, and he delivered! Over Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” and Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” Instrumentals, he lets us know he’s not in the 360 deal life, rolling with D-Roc and Diddy, and showcasing why he’s one of the nicest out there. Of course he had let the patois sneak in and represent as always. Get familiar with him if you haven’t yet. Check out the video below, and share with a friend.

Introducing to the Blog is a NY based Artist by the name of Alex Mali. She has been around for a while releasing some dope tunes, and she proudly reps her West Indian background (Jamaica & Trinidad). For those familiar with the Joey BadA$$ & PRO ERA, you may have heard her on a track or two. With some fire on the way, she gives listeners a taste with a Freestyle titled “Livin“. Produced by KDVG, she describes her tune as an “expression of Parental disapproval” as she points out a few clashes with her Mother. We love our Moms, but there are times where we’re just not gonna see eye to eye with ordeals and expectations. If you know Caribbean Mothers, you know there weren’t just regular arguments. We may be a lil rebellious at times, but we love you Mama! I’m sorry. Check out the track below.
Many have thrown dirt his way over the years, but Recording Artist/Fur Expert Safaree stands tall regardless. Recently, he stopped by the Hot 97 Studio to rap a few bars for Funkmaster Flex. As a part of the DJ’s Freestyle series, Safaree fires off in episode 78. From changing furs during, to sending a jab at fellow Jamaican, popular Youtube personality DJ Akademiks, we’re surprised he didn’t throw his signature “Suck ya mada” during. Not a bad episode here, Safaree makes sure he adds his “Stuntman” charisma throughout. Shout out Messiah the “Fur God“. Catch Safaree in a city near you, or a TV near you. Check out the video below.
