We Salute @Aidonia4thGenna’s Career In Our Latest Playlist!


If you have heard “J.O.P.!“, “Bushkash Bushkash“, “So Sick…“, “1 Voice…“, “Bad people, move move move…” and “Start di Helicopter…” at some point your Dancehall music listening sessions, then you have experienced some of Dancehall Artist Aidonia’s great works! The man born Sheldon Aitana Lawrence, has been a mainstay since his ascent onto the scene in the early 2000s. If you were looking for lyricism, a voice that commanded attention, and something new, Aidonia was one of the few who checked all three over the years and had hits to boot.

Today’s post pays tribute to the man who had folks saying “J.O.P.” over the wildly popular “Gaza” and “Gully” with the easily recognized hand sign. With our latest Playlist, we let you in on the works from “The 4th Genna Boss“! With over 6 hours of hits from bad man tunes to gal songs, the only ones didn’t make it aren’t available for streaming. With folks out here trying to discredit Aidonia’s contribution to Dancehall, you need people like to appreciate and recognize his works that weren’t in vain.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Triston Palmer – Joker Smoker (1980)


This one is for all those who have that one annoying friend (or a bunch of friends) who are just not about that Ganja life in every way. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the legendary Triston Palmer a.k.a. Tristan Palma with the track, “Joker Smoker“! Produced by Jah Thomas, this was released through the J&J label in 1980 with releases through other labels over the years. The song was also featured on Triston’s 1982 album of the same name. Throughout the track, Triston calls out those who love to be around the smokers and instead of respecting the space and culture, they became an irritation. Many can relate to this as there are those who cause money and Marijuana to be wasted, the loss of lighters and other paraphernalia, and tempers to flare up.

“Joker Smoker” became one of Triston Palmer’s most famous tracks, and has been sampled by the likes of Electronic Dance Artists Top Cat and DJ Solo, and by Dancehall Artist Aidonia who even borrowed the song’s title for his single. The song’s title continues to be used among those who are not about that Stoner life as well. Be wary of who you share your Weed with.
