Trinidad’s bringing in some new heat today courtesy of Jimmy October and Jay Nahge! Titled “Tag ‘Em Up” and produced by Anson Soverall, the duo decided to flex on a beat that sounds “Jumping on the V.I.P. Couch“, “Order more bottles” and “Make it rain in the club” ready. Dropping lyrics back and forth, if you haven’t heard Hip Hop out of T&T, today changes all that. From the good folks at the Overdose Music Group, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
It’s no secret that Hip Hop Artist Drake is a fan of Jamaica’s music culture. From his choice of slang, to his affiliations, to his hometown being chock full of the Jamaican influence, it’s only right that his “Views” album gets some of the essence. Off the recently released album, Dancehall Artist Mavado is featured on Views’ 2nd track, “9“. “9” features a sample from the Deejay’s 2007 single “Dying” off his “Gangsta For Life” debut album. “Dying” was produced by DASECA Productions and features Serani. It’s not the first time both Artists have crossed paths as Mavado played a role in Drake’s “Find Your Love” video off “Thank Me Later“, and Drake was a guest during Mavado’s set at “Britjam 2011“. “Views” also sampled Beenie Man’s “Tear Off Mi Garment” on an updated version of “Controlla” which was previously leaked with Dancehall Artist Popcaan. “Controlla” also gave writing credits to Jamaican Producer Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor and Supa Dups. “Tear Off Mi Garment” was produced by Patrick Roberts and was released in 1995 on the “Urkle Riddim“. Popcaan’s “Love Yuh Bad” is also sampled on the Rihanna assisted “Too Good” and also includes Supa Dups in the writing credits. The track was produced by Dre Skull and is featured on Popcaan’s debut album, “Where We Come From“. Popcaan is currently affiliated with Drake’s OVO group. “Views” is now available on iTunes.

Jamaican Rapper Vindon premiered his 2020 EP earlier this year and showcased that he’s still an Artist to be on the look out for.

Recently, US Rapper/Chef Action Bronson took to a trip to Jamaica. Known for his love of the Jamaican music, food and culture, he filmed an episode of his popular “F**k That’s Delicious” series there. During his time here, he also recorded a few tracks including today’s “Mr. 2 Face“. With guest appearances by fellow Rapper Meyhem Lauren and Reggae Artist Jah Tiger, Bronson and Meyhem traded bars while Jah Tiger breathed new life into an old track (unsure of the date he recorded it). An interesting collaboration from the trio as they mix Hip Hop with some good Reggae and deliver a chill vibe. You can catch Bronson, Meyhem and Jah Tiger in the latest episode of “F*ck That’s Delicious” on Viceland this week.
