It’s Wednesday so I got some brand new tings to share with you. Ras-I released an ode to the beautiful black woman, titled “Nubian.” This song touches your soul from the instrumental intro, as he strongly says, “It’s hard to find the perfect words, to tell you how I feel…” Same! That was my exact sentiment in regards to this instrumental. I must admit as a black woman, this song truly made me feel special, appreciated even. Ras-I boasted a number of amazing traits of his black woman. Though this is about the lovely women out there, this song is one to rock along to with someone special, take a listen to Nubian.

We’re facing darkness
Fear and doubts in abundance
We must stay hopeful.

This is the week following Jamaica’s Independence Day so I had to share this song with you. It’s no Natural Mystic but they share a host of gems about Jamaica, as well as giving shout outs to the other Caribbean Islands. Kione does a short intro followed by Jeeby Lyricist rapping about the niceness that makes up our homeland, Jamaica, he displays a catalog of things we’re to be grateful for. The usual playfulness of BLVK H3RO in his flows finished the song perfectly, and we cyaan (can’t) complain about his sweet voice.
This banger was produced by Wavy Jones, it’s a little over 2 minutes of pure vibes. It had me rocking all the way through, even though I haven’t learnt all the lyrics just yet. Giving praises where they’re due, the artwork is by Monique Kidd. Take a listen to Blessed Indies.
Hi Everyone 🙂
This is what we’ve been waiting for, the official visuals for Protoje’s eminent single, “Blood Money.” The music video goes deeper into the dialogue of corruption in Jamaica. Take a look at the official music video below.
They love classic art
The framed paintings of ladies
We’re the J’ouvert.

Get beneath my shell
Alas black girls don’t turn pink
Still, we blush clearly.

Hi Everyone 🙂
Today I have a lovely lady that caught my eye at the launch of Coming In Hot. Yeza took to the stage and sang her first single, “Everyting Is Irie.” Her confidence and sense of style already had her on my good list, then she opened her mouth and I was even more pleased. She rapped her verses on the riddim and engaged her audience, she’s definitely one to look out for; take a listen to “Everyting Is Irie” by Yeza.

The Tosh legacy continues… I got to see the release Dre Tosh’s new music video at the home of the Peter Tosh Museum (the Pulse 8 Complex). Dre really came in hot by showing his great lyrical skill in his version of the Peter Tosh song, “Coming In Hot.” He raps the verses while sampling the chorus from his grandfather. Throughout the night he made great effort to pay homage to the legend. The icon’s grandson had a slew of entertainment for the evening before releasing the accompanying visuals.
The lovely Isis Miller was the tour guide for our experience that evening, and I enjoyed her humour. The first bit of entertainment was by a few friends of Dre Tosh, with each person singing a few of their songs. We heard the likes of King Kali, Devine I, Ras Kano, I-Mar Shepherd, Triple, and the only lady, Yeza. I’m not being biased but Yeza had me paying attention, I enjoyed her song “Everyting Is Irie.” We also got to see a short video about Dre Tosh and the continuation of the Tosh legacy; check it out below.
And finally the music video was played, followed by a performance of “Coming In Hot” to raise the heat some more. Definitely look out for him, I love his energy, and the connection he had with the audience. Check it out, “Coming In Hot” by Dre Tosh.
