The Singer Ternt Rappa Now

Valentine’s Day may be coming up, but don’t you ever try to put Randy Valentine in a box—not even a heart-shaped box. On his first mixtape, Bring Back the Love (which was downloaded over 50’000 times), RV voiced over  classic reggae instrumentals from the “foundation” era of reggae. Yesterday the singer with mad deejay skills dropped a new mixtape that heads in a completely fresh creative direction—call it a musical RVlution. “I bet the radio nah go chart this,” Valentine raps on the opening cut, over the beat to “Can I Kick It?” off A Tribe Called Quest’s debut album. “That’s alright, man ah no radio artist.” Radio Music is a 19-track excursion which takes the listener back to the ’90s, the golden age of Hip Hop. “Music has no boundaries,” says Valentine. “This project carries the same energies as all my previous projects—this time we’re stepping forward into the 90’s Hip Hop Era Via my Global Radio Station Conscious FM 98.checkYourself. Same energy, same message just a different formula. This is what’s on my Radio. FullJoy the Experience.” Presented by Hemp Higher and Tek-9 Movements, the new tape features guest appearances by Kabaka Pyramid, Gappy Ranks, Calip P, and Big Bullz. Hosts include Walshy Fire, Bobby Konders, Seani B, Jugglerz, Ninja Crown, and King Lagazee. Enoug of the long talking. Tracklist and Download Link After The Jump…

Love is a beautiful thing, and some would argue that music is “all about the girls.” On his just released “Sex, Love & Reggae” mix Gyptian makes sure to drop something for all reggae lovers, but the real treat is that Gyptian choose to pair his soothing voice over some classic riddims.
