Recording Artist Dwayne Rose recently released “Bring Yuh Body” and is busy finalizing the Music Video. The JayCrazie Records & Taffari Coke (Alpha Phi DaFraturnity Muzik Group) produced single has been making its rounds and getting a steady buzz thanks to its lyrics. Delivering something for the lovers, the production blends well with the song’s catchy hook which promotes extended Radio play, and sexually charged lyrics that will be a guilty pleasure for those who hear the explicit version.
To hold listeners over, he also released a preview video. Directed by Strugu Films with assistance from Papii Dino, and Creative Direction by Lady E, the video features Miami based Model Amelia Banks who oozes sex appeal in this 1 minute visual. Dwayne Rose’s single promises to be a hit in 2017, and the video will turn up the temperature! Check out the video and single below.
The ongoing relationship with Dancehall Music and the Trap Music sub genre of Hip Hop seems to be a promising one. With influences from acts like Migos, Travis Scott, and Lil Uzi Vert to name a few, expect many established and upcoming acts to expand their creativity. Recently we featured a Mix from Jamaican Rapper Jermani and DJ Mac, and today we feature a visual from the single, “Why Me“. Shot and directed by Deth (a.k.a. “ShotByDeth“), Jerms fires off bars while his crew holds it down in the night. The Lo Flame production gives off an eerie sound fitting the video’s dark setting and makes you pay attention while Jerms tells you what his RUDE life is like. Why pree my G? We just want to vibe on the Island wid a bad ting! Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
You know him as the Wild Indian, the Wild Apache, the Don of all Dons, but he is also known as Super Cat! One of the legendary Deejays from Jamaica, Super Cat commanded the crowd, and ruled the airwaves. Today on Oldies Sunday (we’re back after a few months), we won’t highlight the hits, as you know them well, but refresh your memory or introduce to you International singles that featured the Don Dadda. Let’s go!
Dem Nuh Worry We (Hip Hop Ragga Remix) ft. Heavy D. (1992)
Many know the original version over Dancehall production, but this Hip Hop version was a hit in the US clubs. Produced/Remixed by DJ Eddie F., the combination of Super Cat and the late Rapper/Producer Heavy D was a winner no matter what Riddim it rode! Me love mi Chicken and mi Goat well curry!
Dolly My Baby (Bad Boy Remix) ft. Mary J. Blige, 3rd Eye, Puff Daddy & Biggie Smalls (1993)
Super Cat was well respected in the Hip Hop crowd, and this remix is one of the few examples of that. Co-Produced by 3rd Eye and Puff Daddy who added verses, Mary J. Blige delivered the backing vocals and featured the debut recording of the late Biggie Smalls who was then unknown. A lot of history in one track as Mary went on to be the Queen of Hip Hop/R&B, Super Cat became a Dancehall legend, Puff Daddy went on to be one of the great Hip Hop CEOs, Biggie went on to be a legend in Hip Hop, and 3rd Eye, who was one of the first Hip Hop acts signed to Motown Records, and was argued to be the creator of the term “Bling Bling” (Lil Wayne was to argue that he coined the term in the late 90s with his single of the same name).
Recording Artist OneLoveTheo has been enjoying a favourable buzz since the release of his “LOVE & Good Vibes” project this past summer. Since then, he has been busy working on giving fans visuals to accompany the songs. Today he drops one for “Her Body“. Directed by Fredrivk Ali, Theo is accompanied by dancing and DJing women as he spews lyrics about admiring the female physique, and how she moves it. With a Production that encourages you to move, the single is made for the sexy ladies who know how to work those curves. If they haven’t mastered all the moves however, they can learn a thing or two by watching Theo’s dancing ladies on screen. OneLoveTheo’s new project is available on onelovetheo.com.

Armed with green hair, a bad attitude, lyrics, and her crew, Mystic is ready for whatever in the visual for the DizTroy assisted “30 Bad Bitches“. Directed by Dennis Brown Films and shot in Port Antonio, we see Mystic firing off lyrics, getting her nails done, and busting out the moves with her all girl crew in various scenes. What also caught us is the beauty of the location especially the backdrop displayed while Mystic gets her nails done, and various random shots. The Producers Dizzle and Troy Baker make brief appearances in the video along with an old white lady who was not shy about showing off her moves. Packing the Mac in the back of the ‘Lac, punish a fassy who willing fi chat. The DizTroy Featuring Mystic Davis EP is now available on iTunes.
