This lovely February morning, we have a new single from Protoje, tilted “Bout Noon”. 2018 has started off with a continuation of the highly appreciated 2017 trend, persistent amazing music releases. I really think he should have dropped this song before Valentine’s Day ’cause it’s for you…
Mas Camp, Kingston I sat down thinking what angle to take for this introduction, so much happened in the space of one week. Getting to the concert was such an emotional roller coaster for me, thanks to procrastination. I had been waiting on my friend…
I’m here to represent for the group of people who sit and wait for Protoje to bless the universe with new music; he never disappoints. Last week Proto dropped “Truths and Rights” featuring Mortimer and it took my Twitter timeline by storm, with good reason. The song was produced by Winta James, and I’m not being biased when I say him have the formula… the rhythms from him are good and unique.
Truths and Rights speaks up for the youths in society… the future of the country. As well as the evident inequality that befalls the masses. They encourage us to think keenly about the choices we make in life, and inject that a little love can go a long way.
“When all the youths need is a chance, not a bly“
I thought strongly about typing out the entire second verse, for you to see why I am so moved by this song. There’s so much wrong in society, and people need to hear and see it, people need to be the change. And it can simply start by caring about each other, we’re all human beings. Take a listen to Truths and Rights.
“Until the day that my soul takes flight, Babylon will hear my voice,
cause we deh yah so fi truths and rights.”
I can’t decide if I like Blood Money or Truths and Rights more, comment below with the one you like more.

It’s a rainy week in Jamaica but we jammin’ still. DJ Stamma released a special mix tape last week, where he showcases music from the “independent musical geniuses of Jamaica.” It has songs from some of the greatest acts to grace the music scene right up to the upcoming artistes that are making great headway. This is Indie Genius Vibes, take a listen. Go to the Soundcloud page to see the track list.
Why was I doing the most while listening to this? I feel like Stamma executed his idea perfectly, I thoroughly enjoyed the mixtape. I sang along to the songs I knew and grew excited at the unfamiliar ones I heard. P.S. Big up yourself for the name Stamma! “Indie Genius” – Indigenous, that was a good one.
