Black Kat Sound, Tony Matterhorn, Killamanjaro, King Jammys, Wha Dat Sound, Stone Love, Mighty Crown, Fire Links, Bass Odyssey, what do they have in common? They are some of the Selectors (DJs) and Sound Systems that have greatly contributed to the Sound Clash Culture in Jamaica over many decades.

There comes a time when we all have to leave this world, all that we’ve ever known is no longer with us, and we embark on the After life. While many are at peace with that, Comedian Kyng Tavii believes he’s not ready to go when the Grim Reaper comes in “The Grim Con“. Featuring fellow Comedian Kevin2WoKrayzee as the Grim Reaper, we see a hilarious skit where Tavii tries his best to escape the Reaper’s Scythe, and Kevin’s not having it. Will Tavii join him in the After life? Or will he see another day on Earth? You’d have to watch to find out! Shot by McDon Productions, check out the video 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.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard some Jane Macgizmo. Just when the thought comes up however, she pops up with a new single for your head top. Teaming up with Producer JLL and Teflon ZincFence, she delivers “Too Late“. If you’ve ever been caught up in some serious attraction to the wrong person, while the right one slips away, this for you. If you are in the “Friend Zone“, then you should keep this in your playlist. This Dancehall/Pop number sounds like a hit already with its very catchy hook, and compliments JLL and Teflon’s Production greatly. You can just picture yourself in the scenarios mentioned, or even recall one (and maybe face palm if you realized that you’ve lost the right one). Jane’s staying busy behind the scenes working on music with ZincFence Records, and aims to drop a full length project in 2018. Can’t wait to see a visual for this one. We hope it’s not too late for you to let that love blossom with someone, but it’s not too late to listen to this new Jane Macgizmo below!
“Too Late” is also available for purchase on Apple Music (Get It Here).
