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.
For years there have been talks about making venues for fresh young talent to showcase their works in Jamaica. While some have popped up over time, one that is here to stay is held at the Stones Throw Bar every monday by the name of “New Wave”! Located at 1b Mannings Hill Rd. in Kingston, patrons witness displays of Art from some rising stars from 8PM to 12AM. Since its inception in late 2016, it has quickly become the talk of the town, or rather the Island. For those who don’t know, we recently interviewed a couple members behind the “New Wave” team, Lindsey Lodenquai (Head Coordinator), and Davida-Mae Chambers (Social Media Manager/Coordinator). Open your mind for a “New Wave”!

Sometimes It’s a battle when an Artist has to switch up the styles to be placed on a bigger platform. Today, Reggae Artist Kabaka Pyramid battles with his Hip Hop side on another level in “Kabaka Vs Pyramid“. Shot by JussBuss TV and features the late Notorious B.I.G.’s “Gimme The Loot” Instrumental, it’s Reggae Vs Hip Hop as the twos sides of Kabaka try to justify the better and more successful one. With cameo appearances from Five Steez, The Sickest Drama, Runkus, Koro Fyah, Royal Blu and more, this is a battle to see and replay many times. Featured on Kabaka and Walshy Fire’s “Accurate Mixtape“, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
“Nuh judge me true mi eyes red!” – @KoroFyah
Within 24 hours much can be accomplished. Believe it or not, a day from now #PayAttention goes live again and further establishes itself a milestone within the Jamaican entertainment diaspora. I have nothing further to say on this topic; come show your support.
Introducing the Mogul, Koro Fyah
A: I expect a receptive crowd, a high energy, some solid music and heavy bass!
Q: With a fresh track bouncing around on the airwaves and a solid project to come, what should patrons AND fans look forward to from Koro Fyah on stage?
“It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon
Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.
VinDon of BluRok is present.
Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance
A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.
Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?
