Where are the Gamers? Recently, popular Racing Simulation series “Need For Speed” released their latest Video Game titled, “NFS Heat“! For those who are into Cars of all makes along with Nitro-burning speed, this one is sure to be a great addition to your collection. Along with the game comes a pretty heavy soundtrack that features Jamaica’s own DeeWUNN, Kabaka Pyramid, and Konshens on the tracks, “Back It Up, Drop It” (ft. Leo Justi), “Murder Music” (ft. Chase & Status), and “Reload” (ft. Eve) respectively. The soundtrack also features music from the likes of Latin Artists Zion Y Lennox, Toro Y Moi, and Alvaro Diaz, and Afrobeats Artist Burna Boy.
While these Artists are no strangers to being featured on various soundtracks over the years, they join the many who have had placements on the soundtracks for games like “Grand Theft Auto V” and the NBA 2K series. “NFS Heat” will be released on November 8, but check out the official Playlist below.

In support of the Jamaica BobSled Team, a video and song was released recently. Titled “The Bobsled Song” and done by Sidney Mills, Jon Notar, and Groove Guild, we hear chants of “It’s Bobsled Time” and details of the Bob Sled run all while being treated to a 80s 8-Bit video game styled video. Great video here as many of us would remember playing 8-Bit video games on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It is also noted that this should be played everytime the Jamaica BobSled team performs a run as the song syncs with it. Go Jamaica for Sochi 2014! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
