.@NickiMinaj Breathes New Life Into @Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth”!


If you don’t know by now, Skillibeng’sCrocodile Teeth” is one of the biggest Dancehall singles out now. Released in 2020, Skilli further solidified himself as one of the hottest Dancehall acts, with comparisons to some of the greats. Now rocking an International Record deal and collaborations with various prominent names, this next collaboration came out of the blue. Enter Hip Hop/Pop Icon Nicki Minaj for the remix to “Crocodile Teeth“.

Done in collaboration with Skillibeng, Sony ATV Publishing, Republic Records, and “Crocodile Teeth” Producers Johnny Wonder and Adde Instrumentals, Nicki Minaj returns to the music after a hiatus to take care of family life. Tapping into her Caribbean background, she had to jump on one of the biggest Dancehall songs as a part of her rollout. While Artists like Meek Mill and Tory Lanez showing “Crocodile Teeth” a lot of love, Nicki Minaj breathes new life in the remix, and will find itself in places that may not have been familiar with Skillibeng. If you know Nicki’s background and following, you know this is pretty serious. the song was to originally come out days ago, but things went left, and caused the “Barbz” to get into attack mode. Let’s hope they chill out and support this. Big up Skillibeng!

Nicki Minaj is looking to cause problems with new music! While she has been enjoying the success of her “Queen” album, and promoting it worldwide, she’s looking to take over this summer with the new single, “Megatron“! While she kicks things off with a Mike Ho directed video, a familiar Jamaican Riddim can be heard throughout the Pop Wansel and NOVA Wav production. It is none other than Jamaican Producer Danny Browne’sFilthy Riddim“! Released in 1998 through his Mainstreet Records, it is one of the latest Dancehall Riddims to have enjoyed sampling by a huge International Artist (In 2016, Richie Stephens’ “Sail Away Riddim” was sampled on Rihanna’s hit, “Work“!).

Deejay Shabba Ranks’Ting A Ling” was also sampled on “Megatron”. The track was released in 1992, and produced by Production duo Steely & Clevie (Who is Danny’s brother by the way) on the “Gi-Gi Riddim“. Knowing Nicki Minaj’s pull, expect “Megatron” to be streamed millions of times. Danny Browne’s “Filthy Riddim” featured the hits, “Heads High” by Mr. Vegas, “Breeze Off” by Lady G., and General Degree’sTraffic Blocking“. Stay tuned to the Blog for a follow up Article.

.@ToryLanez Remixes @OriginalKoffee’s “Toast” On New Mixtape!


Gwaan wid it, gwaan wid it…

Some call him a “Remix God“, but Tory Lanez continues his run of remixes with the release of his latest mixtape, “International Fargo“! While folks are waiting for “Chixtape 5“, he holds over fans with this one. One track that stands out on this however is his remix of Jamaican Recording Artist on the rise, Koffee’sToast“! Produced by Walshy Fire and Izy Beats, Tory borrows the original and adds a few bars on it but left Koffee’s original parts on it. Tory also remixed the massively popular “Touchdown (Remix)” on his project which was originally done by UK Dancehall Artist Stylo G, Rapper Nicki Minaj, and Dancehall Icon Vybz Kartel, and dropped some lines on his remix to Dancehall/Afrobeats Artist Davido’sFall“.

With “Toast” cracking the 23 million mark on Youtube and showing up on Jordan Peele’s “US” movie, Koffee has a lot to give thanks for. We need a proper remix of “Toast” out here too featuring some of the established and upcoming names. “International Fargo” is out now, Koffee’s Rapture EP is out now, and you can check out the “Toast (Remix)” below.
