NEW VIDEO: @Nomaddz – Shotta


Top Shotta nuh laugh! Detailing the life of a gunman today is Reggae Band, No-maddz with “Shotta“.

The difference here is that their instruments were concealed as if they were firearms. Great visuals here from the Band with some thought provoking lyrics.

NEW VIDEO: @TheCham – Lawless

Wa-Wow! Remember when that used to be the intro for Baby Cham? Well today’s entry comes from Cham himself and there’s no mention of his once famous intro. Titled “Lawless“, this is a song for the shottas, dons, bosses…you get the drift. Shot by Dennis Brown of V.S.M.P., Cham is shown along with an accomplice escaping the law while highlighting the various communities across Jamaica that shottas reside in his lyrics. Cool video, clean quality as well and is worth the watch. Click on the video above to view and share your comments in the comments section.
