The History Of Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam” (Video)

Wow! The origin/evolution story of one of the quintessential Hip-Hop melodies told in a dope montage. Respect Sister Nancy!

The music of reggae legend Sister Nancy has played a pivotal role in Hip-Hop for over 30 years, but she’s rarely seen profits from her influence. Recently, Jay-Z sampled Nancy’s “Bam Bam” for his track “Bam,” the same song Kanye West reworked for his ‘The Life of Pablo’ cut “Famous.” Genius decided to trace the song’s evolution from a local hit to a frequently-sampled component of Hip-Hop.

Ishawna Speaks On Her Career, “Equal Rights” And More (Video)

Fair warning: You are going to fall for Ishawna’s voice almost as fast as her fineness. Interesting talk about her being where from where so many other Dancehall greats are from, her coming up and her uniqueness in the genre. Of course, Sway and Ishawna had to get into all the dirty and the ‘dutty’ in her hit “Equal Rights” (hot). All kinds of great convo. Watch!

(Oh, Ishawna! The one Jah Prince interviewed back in the day. She mighty fine and stayed on the grind. That’s maaahd!

Konshens – “Gal Dem Sugar” (Video)

You see the title, and I know you thought what I thought… Konshens better not be trying to ‘slick bite’ off Beenie Man and Mya’s “Girl Dem Sugar” or else. But hold up, you get into the music (which is good) and the video (yup, that good-good), and realize that it kinda is. However, I took this as Konshens’ channeling of the essence of that BeenieMya. Massive cool dancehall is the result. Nice!

Jamaican reggae and dancehall artiste Konshens presents the official music vide for his 2016 single, “Gal Dem Sugar,” directed by RD Studios and G. Spence. Filmed on location in Jamaica.

Dope track. Dooooope dancehall track! Bet money in any current currency that if you ride out and pull up with this bumping out your speakers, any attention you get will be the right attention. Smooth overall, with rough elements and an indescribable ‘night life’ feel to it. Popcaan got another one with this “Nah Idle” (visuals above).

Unity Sound – “Dancehall Mood 11” (Mixtape)

5312-0f18-430e-a184-70452bc5eae9

Unity Sound with the wind up & down for the long weekend set. It’s the “Dance Mood 11” mix. Described as Dancehall with a twist of Pop, it’s euphoric listening if you catch a vibe from this genre of music. At the least, it is great background music (with touches of Hip-Hop and R&B in there, too) for whatever shindig go to or throw for two… or more. Enjoy!

Exploring Kingston, Jamaica: Dre Skull x Popcaan Highlight The Roots & Culture (Video)

There it is. Music doing what it is supposed to do… The music entered his soul and spoke… made him a dancehall producer and bade him come to its home. Now it feels like his home. Watch the above vignette of producer Dre Skull traveling (once again) to Kingston; to immerse himself in the culture AND to link up with artist Popcaan to do work!

Aaaaah, back to Tuff Gong Studios. Others we’ve posted on have been there. See here.

Reggae: Magazeen – “So Low Wine” feat. Wale x Wizkid

I’m feeling the breezy island vibe of this new joint from Jamaican dancehall artist MagazeenI’ve had the song on repeat about 10 times every since I heard it.  Magazeen not a new artist, but he recently signed to Wale’s ‘EveryBlueMoon’ label through MMG a few months back. This new “So Low Wine” track definitely has a worldly influence & features D.C.’s Wale & Nigerian artist Wizkid. The new single will be on Magazeen’s upcoming “IRIE” EP dropping later this Summer.  I love songs like this.  Makes me want to take a flight to the Caribbean right now. Niiiiiice!
