NEW REGGAE RELEASES
Jah Lil - 'Walk Good'
Jah Lil has released another great tune in 'Walk Good.' He also released a great track last year called 'One Wrong, One Right.' Don't know much about him and have only heard two songs and they both have been nothing short of great.
Chronixx - 'Likes'
Chronixx has released a new anthem called 'Likes.' 'We do it for the love not for the likes.' All real reggae souljahs this is your new anthem, I know it's mine.
I-Taweh - 'Judgement'
Reggae singer & guitarist I-Taweh has released a new album 'Judgement.' A great reggae album of true modern roots reggae music. Every song is musically sound and strong. Top cuts include 'Battlefield,' Herb Treez' and my favorite 'Bad Man.'
Stephen Dajure - 'I'm Not A Criminal'
If Marcus Garvey was a singer/performer/musician do you think he would have gotten his message out better? There's no doubt he did a great job of delivering his message. Truly, we do not even need to answer that first question because Stephen Dajure has released the message. It's another great reggae music album and is called 'I'm Not A Criminal.' The 'Rastaman Dread' puts it all in 'Almighty Jah' and the messages of the album: 'One Love,' 'I'm Not a Criminal,' 'Jah Live,' 'Mama Africa,' 'Farm Up A Land,' and you know Marcus was always about 'Up.' Lastly, there's one to support the love 'Something Right.'
NEW DANCEHALL RELEASES
Vybz Kartel - 'Whine To Di Top'
Vybz Kartel is not slowing down by any means. Maybe he's recording new material while in prison or as he said many years ago, I will be releasing a new song every day, which means he had to be recording several a day. His latest is 'Whine To Di Top.' A salute to the dancehall girls he cater to.
Nico Royale feat. Skarra Mucci - 'Be Free'
Italy's Nico Royale is joined by Jamaica's Skarra Mucci on 'Be Free.' A feel good light dancehall/reggae tune to nice up the place. Do you agree?
NEW SOCA RELEASES
JoJo featuring Patrice Roberts- 'DJ BAD'
My girl Patrice Roberts is apart of relatively newcomer Jo Jo's new song 'DJ Bad.' It's an uptempo soca tune that will get you moving and their salute to the DJ.
