OLDIES SUNDAY: Vybz Kartel X @Wayne_Marshall – New Millennium (2002)


It’s the first Oldies Sunday post for 2022! Happy New Year to all the regulars tuning in. For our first post, we go back to the early 2000s to check out a classic. Today’s selection comes from the “World BossVybz Kartel, and his track, “New Millennium“.

Produced by Donovan “Vendetta” Bennett a.k.a. Don Corleonie and Shiah Coore on the “Mad Ants Riddim“, this was released through Don Corleon Records in 2002. Featuring Dancehall Artist Wayne Marshall, Vybz Kartel displayed superb delivery and lyricism on “New Millennium”. He opened with the iconic line, “Inna mi Karl Kani, wid a bottle a tall Canei, tuff a life?”, and Wayne Marshall showed that he had a great career ahead of him when he delivered the hook/chorus. This great collaboration became an overnight hit for Vybz Kartel, a first in his career, and made way for his transition from upcoming Artist, to one of the greatest Dancehall Artists to ever do it. “New Millennium” was featured on Vybz Kartel’s 2003 debut album, “Up 2 Di Time“.

Since “New Millennium”, Vybz Kartel made more hits, got caught up in various controversies, held a #1 spot that became the envy of others, influenced many the world over in countless ways, and is a top name despite being currently incarcerated. No matter what, people will never forget “New Millennium” as it’s still a staple in many mixes, and Dancehall events 20 years later.

It’s A Family Reunion On Bounty Killa, Vybz Kartel, & @BusySignal_Turf’s “Dats Gadzilla”


For 3 decades, Dancehall Artist Bounty Killa has built his career from being a Lyricist, to one of Dancehall’s living legends. Bounty has built careers, killed careers, and laid foundations for the future generations to be inspired by. He is controversial, militant, but mostly celebrated. Today, we see that he’s not out of the game as he is preparing for the release of his biggest album yet, “King Of Kingston“. Before we get to experience that, he unleashes a much anticipated single called, “Dats Gadzilla“.

Produced by EscoDaShocker and Yo Christon, “Dats Gadzilla” is a much anticipated single from Bounty Killa featuring Vybz Kartel and Busy Signal. The Artists do damage on this track, showcasing that despite their many years in music, they are as sharp as ever, and can create songs that will surely connect with the world. Talk about a family reunion as Bounty reconnects with his musical sons to create a track that will be catching fire in no time. Bounty Killa had a highly publicized feud with Vybz Kartel for years and Busy had words with Kartel, but they have all patched things up since. The great thing about this collaboration, it will have long time fans seeing some much needed unity. With “King Of Kingston” on the way, expect a lot more big moments from the “Grung Gaad Zilla“!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! A lot of things are going on in the world, but music is one that stays constant. Today in our #13thStreetThrowback Playlist series, we look back at a Riddim that has many names and variations, the classic “Mad Mad Riddim“!
