It’s Time To “Puff, Puff, Pass” With Our 4/20 Soundtrack!


Happy 4/20! If you’re unfamiliar with the 20th of April, then you definitely need to be outside more (haha). Every year Stoners celebrate the day of consuming enormous amounts of Marijuana. Coined in 1971 by “The Waldos” during their attempt to locate an abandoned Cannabis crop, the day is celebrated worldwide, and everyone is invited! To help your celebration, we’ve provided 11 weed songs that you’ve either never heard of before, or haven’t heard in a long time. Enjoy, and save a spliff for me!

1. Sizzla – Smoke Your Herb (2006)

2. Elephant Man x Mr. Vegas – Bun It (1999)

@GrungGaadZilla: The Modern Day “Dancehall Daddy”!


In this post we pay tribute to the 5 Star General because…we have to give people flowers while they can still smell them. Bless up Bounty!

Words by KingDavidJWill x SwadeDaVillain

Rodney Price, more popularly known as Bounty Killa, could be easily called the “Godfather of Dancehall” or the “The Modern Day Dancehall Daddy” based on his musical family tree. His Alliance Music Group started out of Killa’s love for music, which in return gave some of the best Dancehall acts the world has ever seen, namely Busy Signal, Wayne Marshall, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Kiprich, Bling Dawg, and Aidonia. Outside of his group however, he also introduced us to many others including Spice, Twin of Twins, Cham, and Elephant Man (he was first discovered with his “Scare Dem Crew” members in the mid 90s). In 2011 Bounty made another addition by forming the Alliance Next Generation (A.N.G.) which gave us Iyara, Patexx, Marlon Binns, Kalado, Bridgez, Nymron, Assailant, K-Queens, Prince Pin, Dadda, Venon, Askel, Boom Steppa, 300 and many others. Bounty also lent his ear to Production labels like Pay Day Music, Echo One Productions, and DASECA Music (which is responsible for acts like Serani, Bugle, Dexta Daps, and Raine Seville). The list of names however, continues to grow.

@Wayne_Marshall, Ernie Smith & @MysticDavis Remix A Classic In New @RedStripeJM Commercial


Life is just for living, so why not live it up with a cold Red Stripe Beer! Earlier, the “Great Jamaican Beer” premiered their latest Commercial as a part of the “Drink Right” campaign. Featuring Dancehall Artist Wayne Marshall, Dancer/Recording Artist Mystic Davis, and Legendary Reggae Artist Ernie Smith, the past meets the present as the trio remixed Ernie’s 1972 classic, “Life Is Just For Living“. The Commercial/Music Video, which was directed by Darren Scott, captures the essence of what makes Jamaica great along with Ernie meeting up Wayne and Mystic in a Bar. The video also paid respect to one of the earlier versions of the Beer’s bottle/logo designs and highlighted some moments in Jamaica’s past. Fun fact: this is the 2nd time Ernie Smith’s single was used for Red Stripe Beer as a version was made just for the brand (see 1st video below). When last have you had a Red Stripe? Grab a case and send me some! Drink responsibly! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @Wayne_Marshall x @TheCham x @AceHood x @WakaFlockaBSM – Go Harder


WM

After dropping the star studded “Go Hard“, then another with “Go Harder“, Dancehall artist Wayne Marshall finally dropped the visuals for the latter. Directed by Jon J. Visuals and features Baby Cham, Ace Hood and Waka Flocka, the video shows the artists dropping their lyrics in a warehouse setting with girls dancing to the tune. Damian Marley also makes a cameo appearance in the video. Not a bad effort here, the video has a dark feel to it however. Still not a fan of Waka’s verse but will look out for the next time he collabs with another Jamaican artist. Wayne’sTru Colors” project is on iTunes now. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

MUSIC: @Wayne_Marshall x @AceHood @TheCham @WakaFlockaBSM – Go Harder


As a teaser for his upcoming “Tru ColorsEP, Wayne Marshall recruited Cham, Waka Flocka and Ace Hood for his “Go Harder” single. Considered a remix of sorts that featured Bounty Killa, Vybz Kartel, Damian Marley and others on the original, we hear Wayne going harder against his overseas peers and Cham on this Damian Marley production. Everyone did their thing but Waka had to start with the generic “dutty wine” lyrics. I personally prefer the original but what do you think of this track? Check it out below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

NEW VIDEO: @Wayne_Marshall x @GrungGaadZilla x @AgentSasco x @DamianMarley – Go Hard


This is a crazy lineup! After debuting the single a few months ago, Wayne Marshall recruited Bounty Killa, Assassin, I-Octane, Damian Marley, Aidonia and Vybz Kartel (Voice Only) for the “Go Hard” music video. Directed by Rass Kassa, this video was shot in black and white (or grayscale) with each artist deejaying their lyrics in a dark area or with a crew. This reminds me of a DJ Khaled effort, but I like it and wish there could be more like this since almost all artists had feuds with each other in the past (Wayne vs. Kartel, Bounty vs. Kartel, Aidonia vs. Kartel). Check out the video above, and share your thoughts below.
