If you aren’t familiar with Wayne Marshall’s massive hit, “Glory To God“, you might’ve be living under a rock these past few months. While he has been climbing charts and assisting in winning souls, Wayne has been busy making a Short Film for the track. Teaming up with Director Jay Will, he has finally released a near 15 minute visual. Featuring talented folks such as Camille Davis, Sakina Deer, Zbek, Ruschiene Deidrick, Celene Tyson, Kevin Brown, and appearances from Tessanne Chin and Ryan Mark who also made the song, we get many twists and bouts of redemption in this one. From an inspirational song, we now have an inspirational short film. Check out “Glory To God” below, and share with a friend. If you want more Wayne Marshall, check out this Playlist we made for him.

Yes, we know, Vybz Kartel is one of the greatest Dancehall Artists ever. We’ve seen the cult like following, we’ve heard all the tracks since his Incarceration, his ability to cater to every vibe and situation, and his influence on many. He is no stranger to collaborating with International acts though. While tracks like “Pon Di Floor” (Major Lazer), “Frontin’ (Remix)” (Pharrell & Jay-Z), “Twerk It (Remix)” (Busta Rhymes), “Girlfriend” (Busta Rhymes & Tory Lanez), “WTP Remix” (Eminem & Supa Dups) get spins, he also has collaborated with the likes of Lorde (on the way), Kalash, Wizkid, and Sean Kingston over the years. But today, here are 5 International collaborations that you didn’t know existed, or may have forgotten about!

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)
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!
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.
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.
