Tyga x Amina Kick It In Jamrock

Tyga is the latest young money representer to catch dancehall fever, having journeyed to Kingston, Jamaica to shoot the video for his “Controlla”-flavored jam “1 of 1.” Lest we forget, “Coconut Juice” was one of Tyga’s first singles, way back before “Bedrock” in 2008. “Kingston, Jamaica—real gully,” he says in a voiceover at the start of the Shomi Patwary-directed video. Much like the ghetto back home, just more undeveloped. What some see as dirty and less fortunate we see beauty, love, and God. Of course when you say Kingston people warn you about the danger, as if the cops ain’t killing kids all over our country. Where we from, there’s danger everywhere.

The Yawdie Aubrey Mashes Up The 86 Riddim

In comes a fresh cut from Juss Kool Productions brand news “86 Riddim” a timeless hardcore dancehall riddim that just dropped today as a timely reminder of what the game’s been missing. Many years in the making, the riddim’s title is something of an homage to Dave Kelly’s immortal “85 Riddim” (of “Ghetto Story” fame) and really to the hard-edged digital sound pioneered by the Madhouse maestro. Having honed his craft working alongside the likes of Philip Smart and Bobby Konders, Juss Kool took his time to perfect this bone-cracking track, which the Jamaica-born Drake of Dancehall aka “Yawdy Aubry” (formally known as I Am Stylez Music) tears to shreds. This Stylez selection “Whine Fi Me (Don’t Stop)” has the Instagram dancehall queens going wild—and that can’t be a bad thing. Audio & Video After The Jump… Read more »
