@Sizzla876’s “Woman I Need You” Sampled On @DJKhaled’s “Grateful”!


Oh she cute eeh?” are the opening words to Reggae Artist Sizzla’sWoman 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.

Bless Up: 5 @Sizzla876 Hip Hop Collabs!


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)

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 4)


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.
