First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 2 of aĀ few part series, I feature moreĀ of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.

PRESS RELEASE: @MagranMusic1 Soars with ā€œBad Grandsonā€


Rising Dancehall Artiste Magran has been getting great buzz in the streets with his newestĀ single, “Bad Grandson”. The song was released under his own record label, Magran Music.Ā The song is a humorous one and interchanges between two personalities, theĀ Grandmother and the Grandson. While the Grandmother is expressing her frustrationsĀ with her Grandson because he is ā€œbadā€ and has ā€œnuff girlsā€, the Grandson wishes hisĀ Grandmother would just let him live his life.

Overall it is a very fun and playful concept that is clearly working for Magran, and theĀ upcoming Artiste is loving the attention that he has been getting from the streets andĀ radio so far.Ā ā€œI am bringing back the Granny/Grandson concept to life that General Degree started. IĀ love music and I aim to revolutionize the game and bring back the humour and fun in Dancehall music.ā€Ā Despite being very talented, Magran has been an underground Artiste for severalĀ years but is adamant that 2016 is the year and he will rise to the occasionĀ soĀ the world willĀ know him and his music.

ā€œA long time mi a do music and now I have a better understanding of how things work. IĀ have a team of young people that I am working closely with who knows the business andĀ has taken the time to help me with a lot of thingsā€, revealed Magran.Ā Magran is working closely with rising Record Label Vision House Records andĀ Susan Smith of Powerhouse Gobal Media, who is responsible for all his Public RelationsĀ related work.Ā Plans are also in motion for the shooting of the accompanying video, so fans of the ArtisteĀ can look out for that as well.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @GeneralDegree – Granny (1992)


Today’s Oldies Sunday is dedicated to my Grandmother who celebrated her 77th birthday recently, and your Grandmothers. This selection comes from General Degree and is titled “Granny“. “Granny” was produced by Lo TechĀ forĀ Main St. Records in 1992 and features General Degree speaking on his many scenarios with his Grandmother and his intent on leaving her to live with his Mother. He highlights that Grandmothers tend to be very miserable and suggests that if you grew up with one, you’ll end up like her. Granny (played by Degree) also gets a chance to “ride” the Riddim as she complains about the price increase in food, her Grandson and his antics, and states that if things get worse she’ll migrate to the United States.
