Time to kick off the new week with some new music! If the name Masego isn’t familiar with you now, it will be in no time. While he has been on the grind over the years spreading his “TrapHouseJazz” sound all over the world through singles, performances, and short projects, the young general felt it was time to deliver even more. Armed with a blend of sounds, Instruments, and influences, he recently unleashed his debut album, “Lady Lady“. Comprised of 13 tracks, the album features production and instrumental assistance from Kojoa Asamoah, TK Keyembe, Jahnei Clarke, Justin Bryant, Oliver Jonas Bergqvist, Sounwave, Vincent Fenton, and the TrapHouseJazz Band to name a few. Sego also had a lil help thanks to Tiffany Gouche, SiR, Dewayne Jackson, and FKJ who were guests on the album. A mix of good vibes, smooth numbers, and a bust a move good time with this project. For those who aren’t familiar, Masego reps the 876 (throw up the black, green, and gold), so support one of our own. Check out “Lady Lady” below, and share with a friend.

While we’re a lil late on this one (things fly below our radar at times), we’re always on time with the knowledge. Top Dawg Entertainment Recording Artist SiR released his debut album “November” earlier this year. Since its release, the Artist has been on the radar of many, and has been sharing the stage with the likes of Miguel, and his fellow TDE brethren on tour. Recently, he released the visual for his D.K. The Punisher produced single “D’Evils“, and a familiar sound started it off. While the video was shot in Jamaica by Karena Evans, the sample on the track comes from the late Dancehall Artist, Billy Boyo. A former child star, his popular track “One Spliff A Day” can be heard in the beginning, and throughout the song. The track was released in 1981 and produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes. The track was also sampled on Jamaican Rapper Baker Steez’s “Ba Bye”, and Wiz Khalifa’s 2011 track of the same name.
Billy Boyo, who started his career in the early 80’s, has been considered one of Dancehall’s earliest child stars. While he released two albums, he was known more for his live performances than recordings. His “One Spliff A Day” track was recorded when he was only 10 years old and featured some rather mature lyrics from him. It still remains his most known track. The Artist passed away in the year 2000 due to a Brain Tumor. Check out other Jamaican Artists who started out as child stars here.
