Don’t Miss A Tick, Don’t Miss A Tock In @OfficialBigLean’s “Stamina”!


Our Jamaican culture continues to be undefeated when it comes to influencing music. Canadian Recording Artist Big Lean is one of those who embraced the culture and made it a part of the music. Born to Jamaican Immigrants, he has been making noise for some time. Recently he premiered his single and music video, “Stamina“. Directed by Zac Facts, Big Lean shares a little of his “Yardie” side and speaks on his Mom wanting Grandkids, shows off that he can “Handle di wuk” once he downs a Dragon Stout, instructs his lady to “wine pon di ting“, is a “Gallis inna real life” and states “Me likkle but me tallawah“. With Producer Sevn Thomas handling the beat, this makes to be an easy going listen from Big Lean. Something to grab a gal and slow wine with. A so yuh fi wine baby!

@MajorLazer, @IAmTheKartel’s “Pon De Floor” Featured In New @Cheerios Commercial


Jamaica has made its way onto International Televisions once again thanks to Commercials. Recently, Cereal brand Cheerios released a series of Commercials with the focus on Family. One Commercial in particular focused on Babies and providing the soundtrack was Major Lazer (which featured only Diplo and former member Switch at the time), and Vybz Kartel’s 2009 hit, “Pon De Floor“! The Commercial featured various clips of Babies and the messages, “More Babies, Please” and “They’re Fun!” while the Instrumental to the single plays throughout. “Pon De Floor” helped to bring Vybz Kartel’s career to another level (and Financial bracket), and went on to be sampled on one of Recording Artist Beyonce’s biggest hits, “Who Run The World (Girls)“! The single was also featured on Major Lazer’sGuns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do” album and opened the door for many remixes. Shout out Commercial Tunage!

Abdul Wahab Lafta/UK Apache Deejays On @IslamChannel’s Living The Life (Throwback)


Reggae Music has done some amazing things worldwide. From turning frowns upside down, to building lifelong relationships/friendships, to influencing many sub genres, it’s incredible how all this came from the small Caribbean Island called Jamaica. Today, we go back a couple years to an Interview with the Ragga Jungle Artist formerly known as UK Apache, Abdul Wahab Lafta. Firstly, Ragga Jungle is a genre of music that was popular in the 1990s UK which was pioneered by Michael West (Rebel MC, Congo Natty), and was a fusion of Reggae, Dub, Old School Jungle and Dancehall.

Being interviewed on “Living The Life“, a Programme found on the Islam Channel in the UKAbdul spoke on renewing his Islamic faith, his popularity in the 90s as he had hit singles including “Original Nuttah” with Shy-FX, coming back with new music including his new single “Assalamualaikum“, performing at the 1EID Festival, and closing the show with a live performance of “Assalamualaikum“. Many thanks to Videographer Tyrone Simms who contributed to this post. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
