What has been teased since the beginning of time (sorry Unruly Boss lol), Popcaan finally gives the people the highly anticipated follow up to his “Yiy Change Mixtape“. Linking up with Chromatic, we get the “Yiy Change Fixtape“! Consisting of 32 tracks all curated by Creep and Travis Chromatic, Popcaan gives us plenty reasons why the long wait was worth it. With features from Jada Kingdom, Skillibeng, Preme, French Montana, Quada, Baker Steez, Tommy Lee, PartyNextDoor, Dane Ray, Masicka, Unruly Cuz, Drake and more, this is a celebration of a great musical journey Popcaan has traveled so far. From Gaza, to Unruly, to OVO, the “Prefect” has grown a lot, and is making boss moves.
Junior Reid is not only a Reggae legend, he’s also a Hip Hop legend when you think about it. He has enjoyed a run in the last 15+ years that saw him being the go to artist for hooks and verses on tracks by Fabolous, The Game, MIMS, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne and more. While he still stays true to his Reggae roots, he tackles the emerging NY Drill movement on, “Bag Alert“.
Released through Massive B and produced by Bobby Konders, Junior Reid gets to the money with fellow artists Chedda Boss and Scrilla in an exhibition of the OG keeping up with the young boys, without missing his steps. Don’t expect to hear Junior Reid rapping here, he gives us that pure delivery that gave him so many hits over the years. With a 40+ year career, it’s still good that he can embrace the new generations of artists. R.I.P. Pop Smoke, and free Bobby Shmurda!
The new generation of the Marley family continues to wave the flag for making great music, and ensuring that Bob Marley and the previous generation’s talent they’ve inherited never dies. Skip Marley climbs further up the ladder to success with his brand of music. Having made a lot of noise with his collaboration with H.E.R. called “Slow Down”, today we get to hear his latest single titled, “Make Me Feel“!
Featuring “The biggest Boss” Rick Ross and Dreamville songstress Ari Lennox, Skip finds himself in a groove as he glides over some smooth production by Rykeyz, and drops lyrics revealing moments of uncertainty, but finding hope through that special someone where you get to enjoy life to the fullest, and create good vibes with the one who has had your back through good and bad times. The world can get crazy, but having the right person there with you can do a world of good. With the addition of Ari’s soothing vocals and the Rozay’s signature sound (there are two versions of the track, one sans Ross, the other with an Ari verse), this track sounds like another hit! “Make Me Feel” should be on your Playlist today, and let the lyrics be a mood all year!
Recording Artist HeartBreakQuotey was a young legend in Toronto, Canada. For those who knew him, he was always making things happen, and lit up the scene. An artist who stayed on the grind over the years, he gave listeners a style that wasn’t like anyone else’s. Sadly, he passed away recently, and to keep his name alive, his brother and Producer DJ Blkluos released the project called, “2 Fly 2 Be Broke“.
Featuring 12 tracks, listeners will get a chance to learn what goes on in the mind of HBQ. With production from DJ Blkluos, Ryan Whiskey, and JaymeFromThe9, we get a dose of throwback Hip Hop, Trap, and R&B sounds that do a great job of backing up HBQ’s lyrics. The mixtape also has guest appearances from DopeFa$e, Enaledge, 73V1NN, Jane Doe Smith, and Joe Law who made sure it was extra fire. While death may affect us in various ways, it’s always best to cherish to good times of the ones you’ve lost. For new and old fans of HeartBreakQuotey, we ask you like him live on through the music. R.I.P. HBQ 🙏🏽
First off, Black Lives Still Matter, and the fight for equal rights and justice will continue as long as life allows it. With many Black people facing oppression and injustice at the hands of racists, the BLM protests and rallies have increased in numbers worldwide. Using their platforms, Recording Artists Chase Soundz, Daley HTG, and Terall continue to speak out and spread awareness on, “Can I Live”.
Produced by D’Artizt, the trio share not only their experiences as Black Men, but continue to shed light on racial profiling and oppression, highlight those who have lost their lives, and add support for those fighting for the causes. With Daley and Terall based in Florida, and Chase in Texas, we know that racial tension can be very strong in those regions, but there will come a time where that is no more. While many protest rally through other means, these artist join with powerful voices and lyrics.
