Our Gullyside connects just blessed us with a heatrock produced by Jerry Wonder. “A song like this is a gift for the streets, an anthem for the downpressed, sufferahs and warriors in times like these.” Word is this is just a set up for the “real bomb” in June—Mavado x Future x Ace Hood.

The Mavado reign just won’t let up. High off his stellar performance with Snoop Lion at SXSW, the Gully Gad’s Stateside winning streak continues with the sexy visuals for his hit single “Take It” (featuring Karian Sang) being debuted on MTV. The media giant’s international music platform, MTV Iggy, has had Mavado on their radar for some time, and now they’re taking it further by including him in their prime-time lineup, positioning the Starbwoy as the next dancehall act to make a major crossover move since Sean Paul.

Mavado Meets Wailing Souls, Cher Meets The Abyssinians & Smokey Robinson Inna Studio One Style… This dude Al Fingers is well versatile. Not only is he the author of crucial books like Clarks In Jamaica (which was recently excerpted on Boomshots) and Greensleeves: The First 100 Covers, he’s also nifty with a remix. (Guess they don’t call hin Fingers for nothing.) So we were delighted to get the link to this mixtape collecting some of his best refixes, many of which were previously available only in strictly limited 45 pressings. A word to the wise: You’d better get ready for something completely differet. Audio & Download Link After The Jump… Read more »
