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“.

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!
The McGregor boys of Di Genius and Chino recently teamed up to deliver the visual for their single, “Zero Tolerance“. Directed by BiggzShip and Judeane Moore, we see them in mob mode ready to take a stance against the injustices happening in Jamaica. From poor performances displayed by Politicians to citizens suffering from poverty, Chino and Di Genius are armed with their crew ready to deliver a message to the nation. Off their upcoming G.M.T.A. (Great Minds Think Alike) project, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Jamaican artist Blvk H3ro has a message for everyone today, and he delivers it in the form of a song. Titled “PSA (Call Center)” and produced by Mhaadboxx Productions, H3ro speaks on the injustice that happens in Jamaica and in the work force, and encourages everyone to stand for their rights, and unify to defeat the oppressors. Great production that compliments Blvk H3ro’s delivery. This is a single you leave the “Repeat” option on for in case you missed something. Get familiar with Blvk H3ro by checking out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Hey World! While today could’ve been a post about new music or new entertainers it instead sheds light on a very important topic, the abuse of children and how you can help. Child abuse has been rampant the world over and while many have been saved from further turmoil, many others continue to suffer from unfortunate acts being done to them. In Jamaica, many stories pour out through the media about children being abused and nothing much has been done to help bring justice for these victims. One new organization looking to help bring much needed awareness is Help Ja Children, which was started by a few young people who have seen much injustice and felt that their voices must be heard. Check out the video above to get an idea and check out below on how you can get in touch with the organization and help. Children are our future, help to protect them today…
