.@PopcaanMusic & @RealJuniorReid Featured On @DaveEast’s “Karma 3 (Deluxe)”


Hip Hop Artist Dave East has been one of the more consistent voices in the genre in the past few years, and has always delivered. With a slew of mixtapes, he has always had some tricks up his sleeve for the listening public. On his latest project, “Karma 3 (Deluxe)“, he tapped into his Caribbean side with collaborations from Jamaica’s own Popcaan, and the legendary Junior Reid.

On “Unruly” featuring Popcaan, Dave East and the Unruly Boss do some damage over the CitoOnTheBeat production. From Dave namedropping “Shottas“, Buju Banton, Vybz Kartel, and Super Cat, to dropping badness on the beat, to Popcaan delivering melodic lyrics, you can’t play this one on a low volume. On “Badness” featuring Junior Reid, Dave jumps on the Sool Got Hits and ATG Musick produced banger while Junior Reid gives us his signature sound that has stood the test of time. Both Popcaan and Junior Reid are no strangers to these collaborations, but it’s always a good time when they find themselves taking over an International artist’s track.

.@RealJuniorReid Dabbles In NY Drill With Chedda Boss & Scrilla On “Bag Alert”


Junior Reid is not only a Reggae legend, he’s also a Hip Hop legend when you think about it. He has enjoyed a run in the last 15+ years that saw him being the go to artist for hooks and verses on tracks by Fabolous, The Game, MIMS, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne and more. While he still stays true to his Reggae roots, he tackles the emerging NY Drill movement on, “Bag Alert“.

Released through Massive B and produced by Bobby Konders, Junior Reid gets to the money with fellow artists Chedda Boss and Scrilla in an exhibition of the OG keeping up with the young boys, without missing his steps. Don’t expect to hear Junior Reid rapping here, he gives us that pure delivery that gave him so many hits over the years. With a 40+ year career, it’s still good that he can embrace the new generations of artists. R.I.P. Pop Smoke, and free Bobby Shmurda!

Jay-Z Gets A Music History Lesson With @DamianMarley & Sister Nancy In “BAM”!


They call him “Hov“, they say he’s not a Businessman, he’s a Business…man, but we know him as Jay-Z! Recently he released his 13th studio album titled, “4:44 (Buy Here)“, and many were blown away by the direction he took with the content. One of the standouts however is “BAM (Get It Here)“, his collaboration with the “Gongzilla“, Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, combined with the sampling one of the most sampled Dancehall singles of all time, “Bam Bam (Get It Here)” by the iconic Sister Nancy. Today, they unleashed the visuals for that track. Directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat and shot during Jay’s recent visit to Jamaica, we get a glimpse of Kingston including the iconic Trench Town, the infamous Tuff Gong Studio, and guest cameos included Hip Hop Producer Young Guru, Recording Artist Kabaka Pyramid, Junior Reid, Former Miss World (and Damian’s Mama) Cindy Breakspeare, and the elements of what makes our music culture so amazing! No more talking, watch the video below!

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 4)


First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. In part 4 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.
