Fresh out the studio, Lila Ike’s second single, “Gotti Gotti” is available on all platforms; stream it on Soundcloud, YouTube or Spotify, buy it on iTunes or Amazon, what are you waiting on? Lila is basically telling off the greedy people roaming the earth. In Jamaica there’s a saying “Wanty wanty nuh get it and getty getty nuh want it” which translates to “those who want it aren’t getting it and those who got it don’t want it.” In this song, miss Lila is playing on the saying; instead she says “you got it but you ever (still) want want…” Leaving little for those who have none at all. Straight out of Jamaica under the In Digg Nation Collective, take a listen to Gotti Gotti by Lila Ike.

Today I have a new reggae song on the scene, “Punchinella” by Pentateuch Movement. I appreciate the authentic ‘rootsy’ sound of the riddim. In the song he’s telling Punchinella what he has to offer, some reasons she should accept his love. Though, Punchinella has her sights set on someone else. Take a listen to Punchinella, tell me what you think in the comments below!

*Drum rolls* Today we have something new from Royal Blu. It wasn’t in the early morning that he released this song but it had your girl wishing that it was. Royal Blu gave us “Early Morning” a while back, it has been on my list. Somehow it came up the perfect time, we’re near the end of the hurricane season but it has been raining almost every single day since the beginning of October; this song makes me feel like it’s raining, it is just soothing. In this track he croons to his lover, telling her how much he needs her, reveling in their love. Big up Dj Densen differently, he produced the track, I love the rhythm. Take a listen to Early Morning by Royal Blu.

Beware… Right now, Jamaica isn’t in a good state, specifically safety wise. That may be a reason this song connects so deeply with me. Melovice released his project “Di Vice” a while back which featured songs from a host of topics. I liked Carry Your Love, Gypsy Whine, and Anytime (featuring PTRK) but the one that stood out in my mind was Beware featuring Joedon. In Beware, Melovice warns us to be careful in today’s society, to consciously avoid the lurking dangers.

Can you believe school is getting to me already? It along with a bit of personal things have been taking up my time. I’m very sorry for this late post, I decided to post this song today and not hold it ’til next week because y’all need to hear this. Y’all need to know what Jeeby Lyricist has been up to. He released “Come For Me” not too long ago and I love it. His rapping on the hip hop styled instrumental is so smooth. Jeeby touches on topics that linger in the deep crevasses of the mind and soul, some of the thoughts you may find hard to share with others. This one is to your lover, to your best friend, to your soulmate. He thanks her for supporting him through his lowest moments as well as his highest. Praising her for being there as a motivator in his life, “Come for me” is all he’s asking, that when he’s down, she will be around; all while playing on the sexual innuendo. Bwoy…must be nice. Take a listen to “Come For Me” by Jeeby Lyricist featuring Courtni.

I’m convinced good things happen on Wednesdays, that’s why I chose today to share art with you through Expression Wednesdays. If the song I’m sharing today doesn’t hype you up for your future, then it look well dark fi you. Firstly I have to big up the producers, cause the riddim neat, as well as Khari Kamau for the interesting cover art. In Destiny Leno Banton chants about putting faith in Jah Jah to ensure you reach your destiny. The one called JoeDon is featured on this track, he raps about putting up a fight for his future. This song is for the days you feel like life is fighting against your goals, take a listen to Destiny.
“Seh Jah Jah eva tek di wheel fi mi
Providing mi everything mi need
So mi can reach my destiny”
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.
The cover art seen above was created by Paige.
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.
