@Protoje Stirs The Pot Again With The Official Video For “Blood Money”!


After waking up Jamaica with his crimson tinged single earlier this year, the official visual for Protoje’sBLXXD MONEY” is finally here! Directed by Che Kothari with Production by Claire Osman, viewers get a glimpse of the many forms of corruption, a broader look than the lyrics which spoke about corruption in high places, and the various turns made throughout its running time. The video targets every class, and those who practice the dirty ways will eventually see a fall. A statement making song that turned into a powerful video, more like “What A BLXXDCLXXT Film“! Watch the visual below.

REVIEW: @Protoje’s “For The Culture” Event + Highlights


The Hope Gardens Shell Bandstand served as the perfect backdrop to showcase some of Reggae’s young royals to an eager audience of Locals and Tourists all with one thing in common…a love for the Culture. I personally gave up on Music in Jamaica until I came across these new school of Reggae Royals who through their socially conscious offerings, give honour to the many men and women who preceded them in the genre…

The gates opened at 7:30 Pm and the DJ for the night Yaadcore kept the early patrons entertained on the turntables, and DJ Jimmy Q of NewsTalk 93 FM handled hosting duties. By 9 Pm, the venue was almost full and the show kicked off with the opening act Sevana. Featuring cuts off her Sevana EP and even debuting a new song and a remix to Protoje’s “Love Gone Cold” (she was featured on the original), she had the audience mesmerized as she belted out tune after tune. I still refused to believe she did all that on a sore throat (Editor’s Note: She’s my Hero!!). By the time ZJ Sparks gave Protoje & The Indiggnation the greatest introduction ever, the venue was packed with patrons who were eager to sing and dance along with them.

@Protoje Puts A Red Alert On Injustice With “Blood Money”!


Protoje really had our attention in 2016.

With the release of his “Royalty Free EP”, appearances at Coachella, his launch of the “New Wave” concert series, and other various happenings, people are still asking if he’s dropping a follow up to the outstanding “Ancient Future” album anytime soon. While no word on that yet, Protoje has been feeling a lil on the crimson side late last year and it now manifests itself as his 2017 debut single, “Blood Money“.

Words by @Sef_Jo x @SwadeDaVillain

As Winta James did profoundly handling production of this extremely new track, Protoje sees BLXXD in his eye as he lifts the covers off of Corruption, Classism and the Injustice in Jamaica. On the Island, certain names can get you very far. Whilst on the flipside those very names could have been a part of illicit activities back in the day. It is so very important that we have someone like Diggy who understands the root cause of all this injustice that faces Jamaica and is able to express it so well musically. The revolution is nigh!

@Protoje Offers “Royalty Free” Free EP!


While fans of Protoje still can’t get over the widely popular “Ancient Future” album, the Artist believed it was time to give them something more. Recently he offered up two new releases in “Can’t Feel No Way” and “Glad You’re Home“, but now he ups the ante with “Royalty Free: Side B“. The 5 track EP gives listeners another music side to Protoje as he experiments with fresh sounds and tests out newer flows. With Taj Francis adding beautiful pieces for the EP’s Artwork, Producers like Winta James, The Drum Keys, Tracker John HD, and 8 Track add beautiful backdrops to Protoje, Runkus, and Lila Ike’s vocals. If you’re familiar with the first two offerings, you will be in for a huge surprise with this project as Protoje further extends his musical reach. Happy Birthday Protoje from 13thStreetPromotions! Have a listen to the EP below, and share your thoughts in the comments section.
