There comes a time when we all have to leave this world, all that we’ve ever known is no longer with us, and we embark on the After life. While many are at peace with that, Comedian Kyng Tavii believes he’s not ready to go when the Grim Reaper comes in “The Grim Con“. Featuring fellow Comedian Kevin2WoKrayzee as the Grim Reaper, we see a hilarious skit where Tavii tries his best to escape the Reaper’s Scythe, and Kevin’s not having it. Will Tavii join him in the After life? Or will he see another day on Earth? You’d have to watch to find out! Shot by McDon Productions, check out the video below!
Those Mobay Rappers are at it again! As the 2nd City continues to make noise, two very active members Karma Crew and MoulaUE team up to deliver, “IZU“. Fresh out of the 876 Beats & Records Label, Karma fires off line after line while Moula plays the background like an Incognito Kingpin over some fun Hip Hop Production. Karma has no time for the mumble Rappers, and while they don’t have a secret Society, all they ask for is trust if you wanna be down with the crew. This is one to keep on repeat, and let the world know that Jamaican Hip Hop is still growing. Check out the track below.
After waking up Jamaica with his crimson tinged single earlier this year, the official visual for Protoje’s “BLXXD MONEY” is finally here! Directed by Che Kothari with Production by Claire Osman, viewers get a glimpse of the many forms of corruption, a broader look than the lyrics which spoke about corruption in high places, and the various turns made throughout its running time. The video targets every class, and those who practice the dirty ways will eventually see a fall. A statement making song that turned into a powerful video, more like “What A BLXXDCLXXT Film“! Watch the visual below.
With a follow up to his 2016 “Savage” on the way, Florida based Rapper Daley started making some noise earlier this year with a couple freestyles, and unveiling Artwork. He now adds a Music Video to the list. Joining forces with Rapper/Poet Trill Soulutionary, they get away from it all on “For The Dreamers“. Directed by Kiel Hoilett a.k.a. Kilo, the duo meditate, reason with each other, and spit thoughts throughout the visual.

Organize your mind by watching the video below! Keep dreaming…
