Many have thrown dirt his way over the years, but Recording Artist/Fur Expert Safaree stands tall regardless. Recently, he stopped by the Hot 97 Studio to rap a few bars for Funkmaster Flex. As a part of the DJ’s Freestyle series, Safaree fires off in episode 78. From changing furs during, to sending a jab at fellow Jamaican, popular Youtube personality DJ Akademiks, we’re surprised he didn’t throw his signature “Suck ya mada” during. Not a bad episode here, Safaree makes sure he adds his “Stuntman” charisma throughout. Shout out Messiah the “Fur God“. Catch Safaree in a city near you, or a TV near you. Check out the video below.
The “Stuntman” Safaree stopped by the Breakfast Club morning show recently to discuss a few things. Here he spoke about his new project, “It Is What It Is Vol. 2“, his lawsuit against former Girlfriend Nicki Minaj, addressed the video of him dancing back in the day, working on new music, his recent performances, getting weird requests from people and more. If you haven’t yet, check out his new project on iTunes. Check out the Interview below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
If you’re a listener of Dancehall Music, then you’ve heard the name “Shabba Ranks” before. One of the greatest Dancehall Artists that ever stepped on stage, we’ve called him “The Grammy Kid“, “Emperor Ranks“, and “Big Dutty Stinking Shabba” to name a few. As child he was one of the few Deejays I’ve looked up to, when he dropped music videos and stage performances I was glued to the TV screen despite my family complaining of how “slack” his music was. Today, on Oldies Sunday I present to you a few of his songs, and the singles that have sampled/paid tribute to him. What are your favourite Shabba Ranks singles? Let us know in the comments section. Let’s go!

Getting tired of the shots being thrown at him lately, Rapper Safaree stepped in the booth to send some back. The single, titled “Lifeline“, goes at Meek Mill who threw jabs at him last week on Twitter. In his defense, he aims to downplay Meek’s career and considering his relationship with Nicki Minaj a downgrade. He also questions if Meek is jealous of Rapper Drake’s success as he also took shots at him last week. It was about time SB responded as he has tried to stay out of beefing and move on. What do you think about the track? Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
