Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 2)


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. In part 2 of a few part series, I feature more of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.

@PayAttentionJA PROMO: @SEF_JO Interviews @IAmVindon


Vinny

It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon

Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.

Pay Attention March 28 2015 Flyer (Back)

VinDon of BluRok is present.

Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance

A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.

Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?

Prepping for his upcoming “Seeing ColoursEP, Vindon released a quick freestyle for the listeners. conquering Drake’s “We Made It”, Vinny lets us know that his vision is in the stars and he can’t be compared to anyone out there. Interesting use of Ninja Man on the artwork as he’s a Deejay that never backed down from any challenger, which is also the message that Vindon is delivering. What do you think? Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

bussFresh out of the Blu Rok camp is Vindon with a new video. Titled “Bu$$” and directed by ViN!GMA (Vindon) and Epic Films, we get a black and white visual to the SOS Dynamikz produced track. Featuring @VenTwinkle, we get a mix of a jogging beauty, empty houses and suicide which are the ingredients for a horror movie. Is Vindon making a horror movie? Who knows. “Seeing Colors” is on the way. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
