UK based Recording Artist J Hus has been on fire this year thanks to his debut Album “Common Sense“, and his appearances on tracks from Krept & Konan, Stormzy, and more. With his “Bouff Daddy” single bubbling, he enlisted the assistance of the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan for the remix! Produced by Dre Skull, Poppy brings his flair to the track as he lets you know he’s in the streets like the white line, and doesn’t need to spend money foolishly to get the attention of the ladies. Flexing the “Unruly” way while J Hus shows us what the “Bouff Daddy” life is about. An early Christmas present for those who have been waiting, and another International collaboration for Popcaan. Yuh done know, yuh done know. Check out the track below.
When was the last time you heard a Gully Bop tune? He was on top of the Dancehall scene for a while, but somewhat faded out. With some saying he’s working on his comeback, today’s new entry may just be a start. Recently his “Wuk Affa Mi” single was sampled by Ghanaian DJ/Producer Juls for the Nigerian Dancehall Artist Burna Boy assisted, “Gwarn“! A song for the ladies, Juls and Burna want them to know that they have the “good good loving” that they need! With Bop’s catchy lyrics that turned him into a viral sensation added, the single also gives the men a warning that if you don’t treat her right, another man will. With a really nice production that blends well with the lyrics, you can’t help but keep this one on repeat! Check out the track below, and don’t forget to share!

Lauren Le Franc, a Jamaican Entrepreneur residing in
the United Kingdom, has won a Graduate Award from City University of London to expand her already established Coffee Business, J.A. Island Roasters. As part of her award package, Le Franc also secured a location for her business at the University’s Cass Business School, and is looking at commencing operations in the upcoming weeks.
Le Franc, a qualified Barrister of England and Wales who first set up the company in Jamaica in 2011 while completing her legal education, has been focused on selling roasted Coffee through J.A. Island Roasters under the brand, True Blue 100% Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee. With this award she is looking forward to importing organic and non-organic Jamaican green beans to the U.K. from the world-famous Blue Mountains.
She said the award package also covers operational costs, and comes with mentorship and support from the University. “I’m elated to have such an amazing opportunity to expand my business and to take brand Jamaica a step further into the spotlight,” shared Le Franc. “I already have a Distributor who has been contracted to take all my organic Coffee, I look forward to continuing the work with the Coffee Industry Board on this venture and I am heading into business with an optimistic mindset and a winning attitude.”
In 2014, J.A. Island Roasters received approval from the Certification of Environmental Standards (CERES) – an International organization which offers certification for organic farming and food processing, to maintain good practices in the Food Industry. Then, she received approval from the Coffee Industry Board to export organic certified Jamaican Blue Mountain green bean Coffee. Although she found favour for her roasted Coffee in the Asian market, she was in search of additional opportunities for development when she came across the City University of London’s Entrepreneur Graduate Scheme Competition in 2016, and her big break came when she decided to participate.
It’s big business when these two team up! The “Unruly Boss” Popcaan and UK Rapper Giggs got the clips loaded and masks on in their new track, “Time’s Tickin’“. Over a banging Production, the Artists go into “Killy Killy” mode and show listeners they’re not playing when the war is on! For those who aren’t familiar with Giggs, he has been on the UK Rap and Grime scene for a few years delivering slick rhymes over dope Production. More people got wind of him thanks to his appearance on Rapper Drake’s “More Life” project. With his recently released “Wamp 2 Dem” Mixtape, he wants new listeners to know he’s here to stay, and will be a problem to those who step in his way. Wicked! Shout out to Popcaan as he has once again secured an International collaboration! Have a listen to the song below!
