Today’s new entry will surely have a few fans reminiscing. Former “Students” of Vybz Kartel’s Portmore Empire, Popcaan and Jahvinci reunite in a new single titled “Steamy“. With Poppy’s familiar delivery and Jahvinci’s signature sound, they grab the guns and fire off plenty rounds on this one. After being previewed for some time, fans heavily anticipated this collaboration. Despite being in different situations after all these years, it’s good that they could make the link and deliver some heat! Leaving skulls and rifles steamy, call the Coroner. Check out the track below.
Yes, we know, Vybz Kartel is one of the greatest Dancehall Artists ever. We’ve seen the cult like following, we’ve heard all the tracks since his Incarceration, his ability to cater to every vibe and situation, and his influence on many. He is no stranger to collaborating with International acts though. While tracks like “Pon Di Floor” (Major Lazer), “Frontin’ (Remix)” (Pharrell & Jay-Z), “Twerk It (Remix)” (Busta Rhymes), “Girlfriend” (Busta Rhymes & Tory Lanez), “WTP Remix” (Eminem & Supa Dups) get spins, he also has collaborated with the likes of Lorde (on the way), Kalash, Wizkid, and Sean Kingston over the years. But today, here are 5 International collaborations that you didn’t know existed, or may have forgotten about!
(If you want to buy them, the links are in the titles. Bless up!)
It’s Sunday, and a new Vybz Kartel just dropped. Of course we gotta check this out! While this was scheduled to drop later, Producer Rvssian decided to unleash it to the world! Over the “Moscow Riddim“, Addi goes in on why he’ll forever be the best out there. No matter who’ll try to copy him, he’s the Prototype! No Election needed, call him the best. Still not sure? Check out the track below, and decide for yourself!
It’s big business when these two team up! The “Unruly Boss” Popcaan and UK Rapper Giggs got the clips loaded and masks on in their new track, “Time’s Tickin’“. Over a banging Production, the Artists go into “Killy Killy” mode and show listeners they’re not playing when the war is on! For those who aren’t familiar with Giggs, he has been on the UK Rap and Grime scene for a few years delivering slick rhymes over dope Production. More people got wind of him thanks to his appearance on Rapper Drake’s “More Life” project. With his recently released “Wamp 2 Dem” Mixtape, he wants new listeners to know he’s here to stay, and will be a problem to those who step in his way. Wicked! Shout out to Popcaan as he has once again secured an International collaboration! Have a listen to the song below!
