If you didn’t know, legendary Reggae/Dancehall Artist Sizzla Kalonji recently released his latest Album, “I’m Yours“. With Billboard charting Producer JonFX handling the Album’s sound, many wouldn’t expect this: US Rapper XXXTentacion on a track! Featuring JonFX, the “Look At Me!” Rapper hopped on Sizzla’s “My Girl“! Getting into a lil patois, XXX shares lyrics on admiring the beautiful features of a woman, and making that gun bust like the 90’s while we hear Sizzla get into his love for the black woman. A collaboration we never expected to happen, but it sounds good! Sizzla’s “I’m Yours” is now available online, check out the track below.
“Oh she cute eeh?” are the opening words to Reggae Artist Sizzla’s “Woman I Need You” single from his critically acclaimed 2002 album, “Da Real Thing (Get It Here)“. At the time, Sizzla was on a blazing trail thanks to his “One Of Those Days (Dry Cry) single, but today he has another high point in his career. Today marks the release of DJ Khaled’s 10th studio album, “Grateful“, and Sizzla is both featured and has his 2002 single sampled on the album. “Woman I Need You” was produced by Bobby “Digital” Dixon for Digital-B Records on the “Dem Gone Riddim“. The sample appears on the track, “It’s Secured” which features Rapper/Producer Travis Scott, and Hip Hop Icon Nas, and produced by DJ Khaled, Cool & Dre, and 808-Ray. This marks the second time the track has been sampled as it first appeared on Rapper Cam’Ron’s 2004 “More Gangsta Music” which featured fellow Rapper Juelz Santana. Digital-B Records has been a part of many successful singles from the likes of Shabba Ranks, Coco Tea, Morgan Heritage, his son Giark, the late Garnet Silk, and was the Producer of Sizzla’s “Black Woman and Child” album. DJ Khaled’s “Grateful” album also features Dancehall Artist Mavado with production from Jamaican Producer Troyton. The album is now available on iTunes, and all streaming services. Check out the tracks below.
DJ Khaled is at it again! Having released his new album, “Grateful“, he has a lot of work to flood the streets. Today, along with the album, he unleashed the visual for “I’m So Grateful (Intro)“. Directed by Ivan Berrios, we get treated to a lot of crisp visuals, wonderful vocals from Sizzla Kalonji, and an appearance from baby Asahd Khaled. We have a lot to be grateful for, so let this video kickstart that expression of gratitude today! Great to see Khaled connecting with Reggae and Dancehall Artists as they’ve been a part of his DJ career from day one. The album also features Dancehall Artist Mavado. “Grateful” is now available on iTunes. Check out the video below!
Recently, a few pictures made its way onto the Internet hinting DJ Khaled’s upcoming collaboration with Reggae Legend, Sizzla Kalonji! With it possibly appearing on the DJ’s forthcoming “Grateful” Album, fans were overjoyed as Khaled has shown love to the Artist via his various Social Media outlets. While it’s no strange thing here, Sizzla has been a go to collaborator for years in Hip Hop along with a couple of his fellow peers, Junior Reid and Barrington Levy. He also enjoyed his share of hit songs being sampled in many Rap singles. Sizzla was also a signee of Rap Mogul Dame Dash’s now defunct “Dame Dash Music Group”. Below we feature 5 of Sizzla’s Hip Hop collaborations.
1. Shottas – Juelz Santana ft. Sizzla & Cam’Ron (2005)
2. Give Me A Try (Remix) – Sizzla ft. Rihanna (2003)
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 4 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.
