1. I just finished listening to soundcloud.com/proeraradio/jo… and heard that Joey Bada$$ was in the Island recently. Did any of you meet with him? That would certainly have been a “PRO” move by The Council.

Inztinkz: Nah I didn’t get the chance to meet him actually, I guess it was just a matter of our circles not crossing.
Five Steez: I didn’t meet Joey when he was here but I respect his work. I really liked his album, B4da$$.
Nomad Carlos: What’s good? Nah I wasn’t in JA when that went down. I probably wouldn’t have met with him anyway due to the circles of interest on his part.
TSD: Nah, we didn’t meet with him, but I’m aware of other First Coast affiliates who did, and I hope something positive comes out of it.
2. Pretend this is a phone call I made to acquire just the right amount of insight about the rap game from the only comrades who actually know the direction of authentic Jamaican emceeing. Fill me in on as much details as possible.
Inztinkz: Jamaican emceeing had always been in a weird place. Right now I think because of the diversity of influences in rap in general, Jamaican emceeing can’t be pinned down to one particular style per-se. Its really an amalgamation of the the Jamaican experience and all that influences it done via the medium of Hip Hop.
TSD: Jamaican Hip Hop is an underground phenomenon that’s bubbling in local scene waiting for the right avenues and spotlight to emerge. There are many rappers scattered across the island, although ‎the fraternity seems more insular in remote parts of the country. There’s a diverse range in terms of influence and sound, but the common denominator is re arranging the yard experience through the prism of Hip Hop culture as its become to be known internationally. It’s a post-modern aesthetic.
