After many delays and a few singles, Jamaican Rap Super Group The Council finally released their debut Album, “Nothing Else Matters“. Featuring 16 tracks, the Rappers Five Steez, The Sickest Drama, Nomad Carlos, and Inztinkz promises that Jamaican Hip Hop and the “First Coast Movement” will be on another level with this project. From songs featuring Social Commentary, reminiscing on the “Golden Era”, everyday struggle, to just flexing their lyrical abilities, NEM has something for those who need an escape from the “Mumble Rap” and want to hear “Real Rap“. The Album also features verses from Kabaka Pyramid, Koro Fyah, Massy The Creator, Tha God Fahim, Illicit King, Triple Tr8, J Militia, and Beast while Inztinkz guides them all with some amazing Production. With years in the making, NEM will not disappoint, and should be a nice addition to your collection. Presentation is also a premium experience with Black and Gold giving it a royal look to fit the tone of the Album. Art Direction by Jome Anderson (Scotty Dreamz) and Warren Buckle. The Album is now available on Bandcamp for purchase, and will expand to other popular Music Streaming outlets in the coming weeks. No more talking, get you a dose of some Jamaican Hip Hop below!
Montego Bay based Rapper MoulaUE has been staying busy these past few months. Since the release of his 2016 effort, “Know My Intentions“, he has made appearances on various projects with a verse or few. Today, the “Mobay Kingpin” makes his return with a new project titled “All U Go Get Until…” to shake up a few playlists. With 5 tracks in, and featuring Production from Thomas Craiger, JuloOnTheTrack, 1694, Dre Minor and Ty Rose, Moula’s ready to make you a believer that Hip Hop is very much alive in the 2nd City. With contributions from his KMT brethren Karma Crew and Daley, Rapper Yung Asura and Recording Artist Minx, this is something to roll up one with and hold a vibe. Expect more Music from MoulaUE later this year, including more guest verses, and a new Album. Be on the look out also for his “Conversations” series on Youtube. Check out the EP below!
It’s “Crunch Time” for the Hip Hop “Supergroup“, The Council (Five Steez, Nomad Carlos, The Sickest Drama, Inztinkz) as their debut Album’s release comes sooner than you think. Teaming up with Kabaka Pyramid, Koro Fyah, and Massy The Creator, they unleashed their 5th single titled, “Misery“. With Inztinkz handling the boards, the Artists offer some social commentary as they detail the conditions faced in Jamaica and how frustrating it can be to the point leaving the Island could be an option. In a society where the blind is leading the blind, and the system barring out those who can make a difference, it really is dread out here. Be on the look out as The Council sees September 29 as the due date for their debut Album, “Nothing Else Matters“. Artwork by Jome Anderson a.k.a. Scotty DreamKiller. Check out the track below.
Those Mobay Rappers are at it again! As the 2nd City continues to make noise, two very active members Karma Crew and MoulaUE team up to deliver, “IZU“. Fresh out of the 876 Beats & Records Label, Karma fires off line after line while Moula plays the background like an Incognito Kingpin over some fun Hip Hop Production. Karma has no time for the mumble Rappers, and while they don’t have a secret Society, all they ask for is trust if you wanna be down with the crew. This is one to keep on repeat, and let the world know that Jamaican Hip Hop is still growing. Check out the track below.
Whether you address him as “Nino” or “El Nino“, Rapper Slim I.D. aims to take over with his wave of Trap Music this Summer! While putting the final touches on his upcoming “Nino” Mixtape, he fires off a warning with “Homage“. Produced by NineSix, Slim lets listeners in on what’s to come on his new project. Still hustling like he has one more job to do before hitting the jackpot, you have to respect his ambition. Those who doubted will be inspired, and those who wrote him off with regret it. Previously featured in the “15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017” post, Slim I.D’s “Nino” project will see the light later this year. Check out the track below.
Rapper Slim I.D. may be a lil late to kicking off his 2017, but when it comes to the money, he’s earlier than the sun! Inspired by Rappers Future & Rick Ross’ “That’s A Check“, he stepped in the booth and added his bars for his own remix! With Phantom handling the Production, Slim goes in like the Tax Man when that payment is overdue! If you owe Slim I.D. money, I’d advise you to get every sent together and pay him in Cash, Cheque, Paypal, Western Union, and any other way you get that money sent off!
