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.

NEW VIDEO: @Sadiki_iLive x @RealJuniorReid – My Story


We don’t always know a person’s past or what they’re going through, but there comes a time where they share it all in their own way. Today, US Based Hip Hop/Reggae Artist Sadiki-I shares his life on “My Story“. Directed by Birhan Tonge of Royal Ras Productions and shot in Jamaica and New York, this features Junior Reid and a cameo appearance by popular US Media Personality Angela Yee. Here Sadiki spoke on his Montserrat heritage, being raised in Boston, being a part of the street life, his run ins with the law, and his spiritual journey as a Rastafarian and his journey to Africa. Thanks to Jah, Sadiki has been saved, for if he wasn’t he’d be dead, locked up, or going crazy. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
