After announcing it recently, Digital Artist KxrlyMiyagi and the REM Collective have officially released the trailer for their GIF-based Miniseries, “REM II: Return Of Real“. The trailer gives users a 90’s feel as they throw in a short backstory along with a glimpse of the protagonist. Music for the trailer was provided by REM Producers Palace Pikney and SNR Beats. Viewers can hold on a little bit longer as the team promises to deliver the first episode on Friday August 4. Stay tuned to the Blog for more updates, and watch the trailer below.
Digital Artist KxrlyMiyagi has been building a favourable buzz in recent months thanks to his GIF based Art pieces. From his Pokemon/Celeb series on his Instagram, to designing Artwork for Artists like Leno Banton, to releasing a limited run of Dad Hats under the “13Bit” brand with SwadeDaVillain, he has been well received by many, and anticipation has been built to see what’s next. Recently, he announced that he will be working on a GIF based Mini Series with the REM Collective, a team of creatives that include Recording Artist Leno Banton, Singer Yanah-I, Digital Artist Khari Kamau, and Producer SNR Beats. Titled “The Adventures of REM II: Return Of Real“, the bi-weekly series will focus on a reluctant Hero who will be chosen to embark on a journey to “bring back the Real“. The series will feature contributions from members of the Collective and other familiar names, and promises to be one to stay tuned for. The trailer for the series will debut in a couple weeks, but refresh yourself with the “REM SZN” Mixtape that is nearing its 1 year anniversary below!
While Stoners united on 4/20, Recording Artist Leno Banton says everyday is 4/20 with “Ganja Phenomenon“. Produced by SNR, the “Ganja baby of the Original Ganja Baby” delivers a smoker’s anthem detailing the quality of herb he prefers, and makes a call for the Ganja Man over a very trippy production.

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 2 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.
