We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @KabakaPyramid’s “Empty Souls”!


Before Kabaka Pyramid the Reggae Artist, before “Kontraband” hits the Internet, before “King Kabaka” ran the place, and before “Well Done” rocked the nation, there was the Rapper Keron Salmon a.k.a. “Ronny Pyramid” and he’s featured in our latest “Quick Throwback“! Going back to the year 2008, we check his track “Empty Souls“! Produced by Kevin Coates, Kabaka handles a sample based Production as he delivers some conscious Rap about saving those empty souls out there with the “doctrine from the Lost Papyrus“. The song also paid tribute to the late Rap Brown, a Rapper on the rise who was a part of Kabaka’s Bebble Rock crew, and known in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene.

Since the release of “Empty Souls”, Kabaka merged his Hip Hop influences with his Reggae side and became one of the prominent figures in the “Reggae Revival” movement along with Protoje, Jah 9, Jesse Royal, and many more. He has since released a few projects, and is looking to release his debut Album, “Kontraband” in May 2018. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

.@FridayNightCru Have Their Eyes On A lil Bad Ting Like “Monáe” In Debut Video!


Ever met someone who instantly got you in your feelings? Always looking for love in the wrong way? Well maybe you can relate with Jamaican newcomers Djavan and Damani a.k.a. Friday Night Cru as they present to you their debut single and video. Titled “Monáe“, the single was produced by Austin Marc, while the visual was directed by Adam Armond. The single is a blend of Dancehall, Hip Hop, and Pop influences and finds the Artists (including collaborator LEO. who wasn’t present in the video) meeting the girl that embodies the swagger of the beautiful Janelle Monáe (whom the single draws inspiration from), and making moves. To hear them say it, she’s a “lil bad thing“! The new wave of Artists in Jamaica show respect to those before them, but draw influences from every genre out now to make their own unique sound. Friday Night Cru is the duo you should look out for more from. Check out the video below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Reggie Stepper’s “Cu Oonuh” Sampled On @Logic301’s “Bobby Tarantino 2”!


Are there any Logic fans here? Known for dropping stand out lyrics in the modern era of Hip Hop, he continues to expand his brand with the release of his latest Mixtape, “Bobby Tarantino 2“. Comprised of 13 tracks, he tackles various issues, brings along some of his friends, and makes listeners know he’s still sharp with the bars. Starting off track 11 however, listeners may hear some familiar vocals. Previously heard on Kanye West’s 2012 track “Mercy“, Dancehall/Reggae Artist Reggie Stepper’sCu Oonuh” was sampled on the Big Sean featured, “Wassup“! “Cu Oonuh” was produced by the late Winton Riley on the Stalag Riddim, and released on the Techniques label in 1993. “Wassup”, which was produced by 6ix, borrows the legendary intro of the track which was done by Fuzzy Jones. “Cu Oonuh” was also sampled on Lil Wayne and Drake’s “Believe Me“, and The Roots’ “Push Up Ya Lighter“. Logic is no stranger to performing on Dancehall/Reggae samples as Barrington Levy’s “The Vibes Is Right” was sampled on his 2016 track, “44 Bars“.
