Third World Meets Tuff Gong: Songs That Sampled @BobMarley & @ThirdWorldBand


February 6 marks the day two Reggae legends were born, Bob Marley, and Bunny Rugs. Bob Marley started out in Trench Town, and became a larger than life Icon while Bunny Rugs made his mark as a Solo Artist, and Lead Vocalist for one of Reggae’s most successful Bands, Third World. While many pay respects to them today, we’d like to look back at a few songs that further immortalized them through samples. Samples will come from Bob Marley’s solo singles, or with The Wailers, and from Third World Band during Rugs’ time. Enjoy!

1. Bob Marley & The Wailers – Johnny Was (1976)

Sampled on: Notorious B.I.G. – Hold Ya Head (2005)

 

2. Third World – Got To Get Along (1976)

Sampled on: Little Brother ft. Mos Def – Let It Go (2006)

OLDIES SUNDAY: 6 Super Cat Intl. Collabs You Haven’t Heard In A While


You know him as the Wild Indian, the Wild Apache, the Don of all Dons, but he is also known as Super Cat! One of the legendary Deejays from Jamaica, Super Cat commanded the crowd, and ruled the airwaves. Today on Oldies Sunday (we’re back after a few months), we won’t highlight the hits, as you know them well, but refresh your memory or introduce to you International singles that featured the Don Dadda. Let’s go!

Dem Nuh Worry We (Hip Hop Ragga Remix) ft. Heavy D. (1992)

Many know the original version over Dancehall production, but this Hip Hop version was a hit in the US clubs. Produced/Remixed by DJ Eddie F., the combination of Super Cat and the late Rapper/Producer Heavy D was a winner no matter what Riddim it rode! Me love mi Chicken and mi Goat well curry!

Dolly My Baby (Bad Boy Remix) ft. Mary J. Blige, 3rd Eye, Puff Daddy & Biggie Smalls (1993)

Super Cat was well respected in the Hip Hop crowd, and this remix is one of the few examples of that. Co-Produced by 3rd Eye and Puff Daddy who added verses, Mary J. Blige delivered the backing vocals and featured the debut recording of the late Biggie Smalls who was then unknown. A lot of history in one track as Mary went on to be the Queen of Hip Hop/R&B, Super Cat became a Dancehall legend, Puff Daddy went on to be one of the great Hip Hop CEOs, Biggie went on to be a legend in Hip Hop, and 3rd Eye, who was one of the first Hip Hop acts signed to Motown Records, and was argued to be the creator of the term “Bling Bling” (Lil Wayne was to argue that he coined the term in the late 90s with his single of the same name).

  1. Dance 101 Podcast Episode 1 – DJ Puffy

Those who know me well know that I love EDM as much as I love Soca and Dancehall! Barbados’ finest (To me definitely), DJ Puffy goes in hard with this EDM mix. I literally feel like I am at Tomorrowland or some other huge EDM festival just listening to this high energy mix.

PRESS RELEASE: Heavy-D Promotions Calls It Quits With @GullyBop1000


unnamed

After opening the first major platform to Gully Bop at Sting 2014 in an effort to solidify the viral sensation as a true recording artiste and performer, Heavy-D Promotions has severed all ties.

Artiste Confused Over 20% Management and Booking Fees

We collect only 20% as agreed for bookings and management. We collect 20% of the deposit and 20% of the balance, which makes it 20% of the entire amount. Bop believes we are charging 20 plus 20 to equal 40% of the total amount this is not so. He got angry in Canada as a result of not understanding and took off,” Heavy-D says.

We Care for him and want the best for him

According to Heavy-D, “Gully Bop is out of control and is making it impossible to work with. He is not listening to me, Chin or anybody else. He does not want any agent fees or expenses to be deducted from income received. Bop doesn’t understand the business at all and believes that whatever he makes is for him, his woman and to give away to poor people in the street. How the bills are gonna be paid then? There are expenses for every tour!”

Heavy-D continued to explain that he has to be working overtime to cover seriously damaging statements and actions by the artiste. He also recommends that he seeks professional help. “I wish nothing but the best for Bop. I try my best to help him and resolve all issues, but it seems to make no sense. Sometimes I feel like we have another Whitney Houston case on our hands. Bop needs rehab and this is no joke. I have my lawyer and accountant working out all unfinished business at this point.”

Heavy-D Promotions would like to assure all promoters and the public that all engagements booked should be honored as all deposits have already been paid over to his fiancée`, Miss Shauna Chin. “Every show we book we take our agent fees and pay over the balance to Chin so all shows should be still on. She is also in a very sticky position, but I understand that she have to stand beside him cause they live together right now. He must cease and desist from making all damaging remarks as legal action will be taken

Dropping on August 8…
