Dancehall: Christopher Martin – “LIFE” (Prod. By Omar Anthoneil Samuels x Cory William Stoneman) [Video]

Maybe not the Chris Martin you were expecting… Bonus points for you if it was. Check out this Christopher Martin video for “Life” off his album, “And Then” (out now).

The video was good vibes, it was good to have my brother Busy Signal [who has a cameo in the video]. We just wanted a simple video that captured the message, showing the simplicity in life and just hanging out.

One spliff a day’ll keep the evil away!

Blow it all away, all the way off the “Holy Mountain” with Buju Banton and Sizzla and Mavado and 070 Shake. BLOW!

Damn if DJ Khaled don’t be behind them bangers! Check out this “Holy Mountain” and if you are blessed with it… LIGHT IT UP! BURN IT UP! MORE FI-YAAH!

(And if you have to ask what ‘it’ is. Don’t worry about it. Plus, if you are at work, ‘it’ is probably something you should not be ‘lighting’ up anyway. Haa!)

Koffee – “Toast” (Video)

Blessings! Life should be celebrated like this. Always.

Something about looking at the world through the eyes of the youngest among us – like 18-year-old Koffee. Simplicity, straightforward path to joy and what makes a day a good day. That’s the vibe I get watching this visual. Watch up and “Toast” up!

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.

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.

DJ Fourd Nkay – “Straight Heat Radio” (September 2016) [Mixtape]

StraightHeatRadioFourdNkay2016Cover1-e1453000809307

Global grinding! Straight outta Japan, DJ Fourd Nkay uploaded a new “Straight Heat Radio” mix – including brand new Hip-Hop, R&B, Reggae – and hit the hip. Literally! Texted like “Check this out!” Usually has Westside Flip doing the talking, but pulling double duty on this September 2016 edition. Hood hard trapping out the gate, so prepare yourself. Got just past the 11-minute and heard

“You know what… I f#ck with people from ATL, people from NY, people JAPAN at the same damn time!”

Priceless!! Never doubt the WORLDWIDE appeal of Hip-Hop! And DJ Fourd Nkay put it out there: coming back to Atlanta SOON (in town for A3C, first week of October 2016)!

(A listen will get you crunk guaranteed. Interesting to note that around the 29-minute mark comes the declaration that Young M.A is the hottest act coming out of New York. Just posted on her on here. Dope!)
