We Look At The Samples Of @Protoje’s “Royalty Free: Side B” (1 Year Anniversary)


Time is moving fast, we were just enjoying the work of art that is “Royalty Free: Side B“. A project made by Recording Artist Protoje, this was released on his Birthday on June 14, 2016 via his Soundcloud page. Featuring 5 tracks and production from Tracker John MD, Winta James, The Drum Keys, 8 Track, and Protoje himself, the project was a hit among fans and newcomers, and had us all wanting the follow up. While we wait on “Royalty Free: Side A”, we look back at the year old project’s samples below. Happy Birthday Protoje and Side B!

1. Can’t Feel No Way – Protoje ft. Runkus

Sample: Don’t Feel No Way – Dennis Brown (1979)

We sympathize with those who are having it hard at this time, and we hope some well needed relief comes your way! Check out the songs! Stay dry!

REVIEW: @Protoje’s “For The Culture” Event + Highlights


The Hope Gardens Shell Bandstand served as the perfect backdrop to showcase some of Reggae’s young royals to an eager audience of Locals and Tourists all with one thing in common…a love for the Culture. I personally gave up on Music in Jamaica until I came across these new school of Reggae Royals who through their socially conscious offerings, give honour to the many men and women who preceded them in the genre…

The gates opened at 7:30 Pm and the DJ for the night Yaadcore kept the early patrons entertained on the turntables, and DJ Jimmy Q of NewsTalk 93 FM handled hosting duties. By 9 Pm, the venue was almost full and the show kicked off with the opening act Sevana. Featuring cuts off her Sevana EP and even debuting a new song and a remix to Protoje’s “Love Gone Cold” (she was featured on the original), she had the audience mesmerized as she belted out tune after tune. I still refused to believe she did all that on a sore throat (Editor’s Note: She’s my Hero!!). By the time ZJ Sparks gave Protoje & The Indiggnation the greatest introduction ever, the venue was packed with patrons who were eager to sing and dance along with them.

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 1)


First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. Today in a few part series, I feature some of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.
