OLDIES SUNDAY: Locksley Gichie & The Zion Boys – Teach The Children (1974)


In recognition of May being Child’s Month, our Oldies Sunday selection comes from Locksley Gichie of the UK band The Cimarons along with The Zion Boys. Titled “Teach The Children“, this was produced by Kush and released through Harry J Records in 1974. The song calls for listeners to raise children in the right ways, know GOD, teach them how to be creative and make their world a better place, and help them to spread peace and love into the world.

The single was released on vinyl as a B-side with the main track being “I’m Leaving It Up To You” by Winston Reid & The Zion Boys. Since then, Locksley continued his role as Guitarist for The Cimarons over the years. Gichie has also lent his skills to various Artists including Los Aggrotones.

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @TheAlkaline’s “Mi Love Woman”!


We took a week off, but today we’re back with another post in our “Quick Throwback” series. Today we go back to the year 2011 with Alkaline’sMi Love Woman“! Borrowing Seanizzle’s “Split Personality Riddim“, the young Alka (who was attending Ardenne High School at the time) expressed his love for the women, and wishes to “touch all the women in the world“. He also shot a video and featured some of his high school peers.

Since the release of “Mi Love Woman”, Alkaline went on to become one of Jamaica’s most controversial Deejays with a cult-like following similar to currently incarcerated Artist, Vybz Kartel. He has enjoyed his fair share of hit songs as well, and has managed to see success despite taking time off, or being involved in conflict. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @TheRoyalBlu’s “Legal Badman”!


Before Royal Blu, before “sinG with God“, before “El Fuego“, there was Sean-Michael Francis a.k.a. “Blu Kid“! In today’s episode of our “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2011 to hear BluKid’sLegal Badman“! Produced by Di Prodigy, Blu sheds light on corruption in Jamaica’s Law Enforcement system where Police Officers abuse their powers and oppress many. Donning the role of a “Legal Badman“, they do whatever a Criminal would do, but shouldn’t face any repercussions because they wear the badge and the uniform.

Since the release of “Legal Badman”, BluKid went on to make some noise with the “Lethal Audio” Band, changed his name to “Royal Blu“, and released enough songs to make him one of the emerging young acts on the radars of many in Jamaica and overseas. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @KabakaPyramid’s “Empty Souls”!


Before Kabaka Pyramid the Reggae Artist, before “Kontraband” hits the Internet, before “King Kabaka” ran the place, and before “Well Done” rocked the nation, there was the Rapper Keron Salmon a.k.a. “Ronny Pyramid” and he’s featured in our latest “Quick Throwback“! Going back to the year 2008, we check his track “Empty Souls“! Produced by Kevin Coates, Kabaka handles a sample based Production as he delivers some conscious Rap about saving those empty souls out there with the “doctrine from the Lost Papyrus“. The song also paid tribute to the late Rap Brown, a Rapper on the rise who was a part of Kabaka’s Bebble Rock crew, and known in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene.

Since the release of “Empty Souls”, Kabaka merged his Hip Hop influences with his Reggae side and became one of the prominent figures in the “Reggae Revival” movement along with Protoje, Jah 9, Jesse Royal, and many more. He has since released a few projects, and is looking to release his debut Album, “Kontraband” in May 2018. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @TheKhxos’ “Watch Yuh Frenz”


Before there was Khxos, before “Dopamine“, before “If God Was Like Man“, there was Khaos a.k.a. “King Squady“. In our 3rd post in our “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2010 to hear Khxos’ “Watch Yuh Frenz” track! Produced by Kris Beatz, Khxos gives us one of his earliest songs with a message as he advises listeners to watch who you affiliate yourself with in life. He warns against fake friends who smile in your face, and stab you in the back when the opportunity arises. Since his 2010 effort, Khxos has made a couple name changes, and has created a buzz for himself thanks to various singles over the years. He is currently working on the follow up to his 2017 debut album, “Dopamine“. Stay tuned for another throwback next week!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @Aidonia4thGenna’s “Lord Of The Blings”


Before “JOP” became a team you wanted to be a part of, and before the “4th Genna“, there was Idonia otherwise known as Aidonia! In our 2nd issue of our new “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2004 to hear one of Aidonia’s early recorded singles, “Lord Of The Blings“. Produced by Rockcliffe (Rodcliffe) Pinnock for Orizen Entertainment, “Didi” gets into “flossing” mode as he speaks on living a lavish lifestyle, and calls himself the “Lord Of The Blings“. Since then, Aidonia has moved on to recording his first hit (“Lolly“) with “Skatta” Burrell, to being a member of Bounty Killa’s “The Alliance”, bringing his “JOP (Jag One Productions)” clique to the forefront, being respected as one of Jamaica’s top lyricists, feuding with a few Artists including Vybz Kartel, Munga, and Masicka, and of course making underground and mainstream hit songs. It’s Ai-di-di-di-DONIA! Stay tuned for another throwback next week.
