What’s better than listening to a Vybz Kartel song? Listening to many of them in one sitting of course! With many unsure of the chances of the “World Boss” being a free man anytime soon, it’s good that we have plenty of his music to hold us over till then. Having had a run of Vybz Kartel themed mixtapes, DJ Heavy D of the big bad Chromatic Sound delivers another one in time for the holiday party season. Titled “Str8 Vybz Vol. 1“, we get over an hour of Addi hits, dubplates, collaborations, and some offerings from some of his “children” that we know you’ll love all over again. In case you didn’t know, this is also promotion for the upcoming “Str8 Vybz” event to be held in New Kingston in December. Check out Str8 Vybz here for more info on that. For now, tun up di sound, World Boss time! Check out the mixtape below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Recording Artist Kranium stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club recently and had a chat with Charlamagne, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee. Here he spoke on the origins of his stage name, his single “Nobody Has To Know” being a hit for a few years, his album “Rumors“, collaborating with Ty Dolla Sign and Justine Skye, meeting Amber Rose, rumors including the ongoing one of being engaged to Vanessa Bling, and more. Charlamagne tries his best to sound Jamaican every time a Dancehall/Reggae Artist passes through, and it still isn’t successful. Be sure to catch Kranium at The Breakfast Club’s 5 Year Anniversary Party and get his “Rumors” album on iTunes. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
