Recording Artists Shaggy and Sting are pretty busy these days. From showing up at The Grammys, to Hot 97, to even Super Bowl 52, they’re making their presence felt in 2018. With their joint Album “44/876” on the way, they don’t want you to wait too long for it. Funny enough, they’ve released the visual for the single people were waiting a while for, “Don’t Make Me Wait“. Directed by famed Director Gil Green, and shot in Kingston, the duo can be seen passing through Fleet Street, jamming away in Half Way Tree, drinking and shooting Pool at a Bar, and ending it with an appearance at a Street Dance. While some of the video is a bit cliche, we’re treated to a very colourful visual for a dope song. If “Don’t Make Me Wait” is a hit, we can’t wait to hear the rest of the project come April 20. For now, check out the video below!

Tonight, Rapper Five Steez welcomes one and all to his home with his new video, “Welcome“. Directed by Nathan Cowan of Caribbean Films with assistance from Bubbla G, Rocket Media and The Talent Inc., this was shot in Half Way Tree and Trench Town. Here Steez drops lyrics about his hometown, the activities that take place daily and of course give a history lesson on some of the children who grew up from there to play an influential part in the development of Hip Hop and the popularity of Reggae Music. We also get cameo appearances from some who play a part in the growth of the “First Coast” Hip Hop Movement. Great video here and I like the take on the black and white video with coloured accents. Five Steez’s “These Kingston Times” will hit the Internet on October 14 but you can preorder now here. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Recently Deejay Shabba Ranks made a visit to Jamaica but during his short stay he managed to do what he hasn’t done locally in decades…record music. Traveling with a mob in Half Way Tree, Winford Williams managed to catch Shabba to speak on a few things. Here Shabba spoke about being in Jamaica to celebrate Mother’s Day, recording in Jamaica for the first time in many years, visiting his old communities, his views on Dancehall recently including the conviction of Vybz Kartel, family life, and possibilities of performing in Jamaica again. Good to see Shabba still doing his thing and his new single sounds great from the preview that was provided. Get together that “Gorilla Money” promoters.
