.@KxngIzem Gets Socially Conscious On “Pity”!


With all the craziness that affect our world on a daily basis, we really need to encourage more positive living and put out good energy out there. Recording Artist Kxng Izem (formerly Dmitri Izem) prays for good times with family and friends on “Pity“. With the single produced by Ten24 Music, Izem shares his observations of violence in his homeland, people studying evil, betrayal amongst friends and family, and folks portraying a clean character but are really terrible people on the inside. The video, which was directed by Vartex Studio and Lucid Production, finds friends getting together for a game of Dominoes, but ends on a tragic note where one was gunned down after a disagreement with another.

This is also Kxng Izem’s first outing since changing his name. When asked why the change, he explained that “Dmitri Izem” spoke towards a suppressed history in which we were once proud black African Kings that had our names replaced. The change to “Kxng Izem” pays tribute to the fallen ancestors and reclaim that black royal heritage.

The Council, @KabakaPyramid, @KoroFyah & @MassyTheCreator Share Social Commentary On New Track


It’s “Crunch Time” for the Hip Hop “Supergroup“, The Council (Five Steez, Nomad Carlos, The Sickest Drama, Inztinkz) as their debut Album’s release comes sooner than you think. Teaming up with Kabaka Pyramid, Koro Fyah, and Massy The Creator, they unleashed their 5th single titled, “Misery“. With Inztinkz handling the boards, the Artists offer some social commentary as they detail the conditions faced in Jamaica and how frustrating it can be to the point leaving the Island could be an option. In a society where the blind is leading the blind, and the system barring out those who can make a difference, it really is dread out here. Be on the look out as The Council sees September 29 as the due date for their debut Album, “Nothing Else Matters“. Artwork by Jome Anderson a.k.a. Scotty DreamKiller. Check out the track below.

Swade Reviews: @FiveSteez – War For Peace


In a music industry where the best Dancehall artiste of the last and current decades is locked away from the world and artistes are either attempting to win fans over with a new sound or copy from what sells, there’s one Jamaican rapper that aims to prove to the world that his brand of Hip Hop music is worth many replays. Five Steez is currently the best Jamaican hip hop artiste that you’ve never heard of…until now.
