This is a song we missed from “Trap Lord”. But it’s good, even if we have gone a bit off rappers with dollar signs in their names, yes even our one time fave Joey Bada$$ who has failed to live up to the early promise.
BUT every now and then there is a pearl amongst the swine, a jewel in the shit and the A$AP’s Shabba is a perfect example of this -
London bashment crew The Heatwave have been getting us ready for Carnival by dropping a great mix of female dancehall MCs called Gyal Power.
If you thought only men could get X-rated and chat lyrics on the mic, think again. Loads of the biggest hits in the Caribbean are made by women for women. You won’t hear a single male voice on this mix…it features exclusively female MCs.
Sometimes a new tune is just good enough to stand on its own two feet. People were talking up Stylo G anyway off the Back of his mega-jam of 2012 “Call Me A Yardie” and his friendship with Usain “pretty good DJ for the fastest man on earth” Bolt.
But his new style “Soundbwoy” leaves no room for any doubt:
People like to think that the old-school reggae dudes were all peace, love and rum punch, but the reality is they were grinding just as hard as today. Prince Buster was battling with guys like Duke Reid and Leslie Kong. Nobody could kill Buster’s sound.
