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.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Beres Hammond x Marcia Griffiths (@QueenOfReggae) – Live On (1992)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from two legendary singers, Beres Hammond and Marcia Griffiths. Seeing that this is the last week in February and I haven’t posted a love song this would make a perfect one to end the “Love” theme for the month. Titled “Live On” and produced by Donovan Germain for Penthouse Records in 1992 on the “College RockRiddim.

Live On” finds these two singers talking about being there for each other through good and bad times, expressing the feelings they have for each other and proclaiming that even through old age they’ll still be close and live on.
