The World Boss reflects on his relationship with Tanisha Johnson, mother of his children.

HEAR THIS: Cham ft. O “Get Drunk”

HEAR THIS: Cham ft. O "Get Drunk"

Reasoning with Cham: ”No! We never pay! We lawless.”

Whenever the artist who gave us classic cuts like “Ghetto Story” connects with his year-to-year sparring partner Dave Kelly of Madhouse Records, you can expect something wicked. The second official track (after the boasy “Money Wine“) off Cham’s  Lawless album just premiered  on MASS APPEAL. “Get Drunk” is a sexy, fun, flirtatious tune that Cham describes as “a fusion of dancehall and world music.” It’s also the long-awaited return of Miss O, whose previous collabs with Cham—”Back Way,” “Tun Up” and “Wine“—were straight bangers. “She had been kinda staying away from the recording booth for a minute,” says Cham “but I got her to grace her presence on this track which is a good thing.” Cham says he made her an offer she couldn’t refuse, which judging by the song may have involved some strong liquor and a few acrobatic positions.    Audio & Interview After The Jump… Read more »

“Be Confident In All We Do And Say”

Jah9 has just released the video for “Prosper,” the fourth video from her latest album “9.” The video directed by Samo Kush-I, was shot in black and white complete with a vintage 35mm camera feel, as Jah9 sings encouraging lyrics of spirituality and empowerment in a relaxed and calming voice. “Whatever is worth doing is worth doing to the highest level,” says Jah9. “And the time we spend in service to high upful endeavors serves to build. The chorus of the song is an affirmation, a mantra, a spell that can be used daily to empower.

PREMIERE: Hood Celebrityy "Unlock" Official Music Video

New Visuals From JA-Born BX-Based Artist Who Calls Herself “The Female Kartel”

We first noticed Hoodcelebrityy when she turned up on “Back It Up,” the dancehall-flavored Cardi B track that also features Konshens. Checking her Instagram profile, we noted that she described herself as “The Female Kartel” which was intriguing to say the least. Doing further research, we discovered her videos for “The Takeover” where she can be seen wilding out with Cardi’s sister Hennessy Carolina, and flipping 50 Cent’s Many Men hook over A Boogie and Don Q’s “Bando” beat. By this point it was clear that we had to reach out for an interview, which you can see below the jump—along with the brand new video for “Unlock,” a track from HC’s forthcoming project Can’t Believe It’s Just A Girl.  In this “Equal Rights and Justice” era anything is possible. Check the vibes.   Video After The Jump… Read more »

PREMIERE: K’reema “Drop It”

PREMIERE: K'reema "Drop It"

King Yellowman’s Daughter Is All Grown Up Now

Pop reggae artist Kreema has a long list of musical influences, ranging from reggae legends Beres Hammond and Tanya Stephens to worldwide pop stars TLC and Beyoncé, but if you want which artist had the biggest impact on her career, look no further than her dad Winston Foster, aka King Yellowman. In case you missed the point, she did a song with him called “Father’s Love” and has toured extensively with the dancehall legend (Reshma B caught up with them during a recent tour stop—be sure to peep the reasoning below). K’reema was formerly employed saving lives as an EMT worker, but she’s been musical since she was a child. So three years ago she decided to give her first love a try—and of course her dad’s had her back every step of the way. But there comes a time when even daddy’s little girl must grow up, and that time has come now for K’reema. The first sign is when they start telling you they don’t give a…  Then pretty soon they’re ready to step out on their own. K’reema recently made quite an impression with “Sorry You’re Not Sorry, a lovers’ rock selection on the Taxi riddim taken from her upcoming EP. Today Boomshots proudly premieres “Drop It” another section from the new project. It’s been a long time coming, but the Brooklyn-based artist is ready to make moves.  Audio & Video After The Jump… Read more »

Saba Jenga: Black Girl Magic

Saba Jenga: Black Girl Magic

New Artist With Soulful Hip Hop and Conscious Reverberations

Saba Jenga is an ambitious woman who left her hometown in Richmond, Virginia to pursue a career in music. She was determined to hone her craft with an educational foundation in New York City. She won the 2012 “Walk This Way Award” for Best MC at St. John’s University and following this she matriculated into the New York University, Clive Davis Institute of Recording Music. During her time of study, she coined a music style of her own called “Dirty Dub,” fusing various genres of music including dub, dubstep, reggae, trap and gogo. Saba Jenga evokes the “black girl magic” ensconced  in a world with a European standard of beauty and oppression of minorities; through a culmination of cultures and sounds. We spoke to Saba, following a stellar performance at The Miss Lily’s 4/20 Celebration with International Selector, Yaadcore.  More After The Jump…
