Bunji Garlin, Busta Rhymes’ “Drop It” Just May Be the Anthem Brooklyn Needs.

Published

It’s no mystery that each year, New Yorkers and carnival lovers in Miami get the last taste of the 2018 Soca, dished out and served to them just as the weather’s about to change and winter wear makes its comeback for the year.

Many would’ve already heard much of the music. Songs like Shal Marshall’s ‘Splinters.’ Voice’s ‘Year For Love’ and even the Road March anthem, Machel Montano’s ‘Soca Kingdom’ are pretty much made the rounds by now. Well, with that realised, two major players have done something to change the vibe, just in time. All hail Bunji Garlin and US Hip Hop boss, the legendary, Busta Rhymes. Together they’ve delivered something that may pretty much invoke some real fire in the US this weekend.

At midnight last night, as promised, Garlin and Busta gave us something fresh- something with a bounce that’s likely to create a stir in C2K19, in T&T. It could also mean Busta Rhymes’ grand Carnival debut. That would be huge!

Boasting a collaboration like no other, Busta previewed the release on social media yesterday, using some very colourful language to express his heartfelt appreciation for this particular link. He managed to spend some good recording time with Garlin and his wife FayAnn in NY this past week, working on ‘Drop It’ – the new single that’s been produced by Trinidad and Tobago’s 1st Klase.

Check it out below. Let us know what you think in the comments section. Brooklyn’s definitely gonna be lit this weekend with this brand new release- something New Yorkers can lay claim to, after all, this one’s being debuted in the heat of the Labor Day action!

No Stopping The Rasta Preacher Now. DJ Khaled Delivers Buju Banton to Even His Detractors.

The irony. In a world where a man can be entrapped miles away from his home country, detained for near 10 years, released, and return to being an even bigger symbol of power and positivity than he ever was, proves there are no limits. Buju Banton’s fire blazes on.

Internationally acclaimed multi millionaire music mogul, DJ Khaled’s been a close friend and ally of Mark Myrie, the artiste we all fondly refer to as Buju Banton, for some 19 years. Khaled, a US national born to Palestinian parents, has been grounded enough to know the sweet beauty that can often be found in the harsh rubble of ghetto cultured living. It’s no surprise that his latest album release, an honorary tribute to his young son, Asahd, features a few of Jamaica’s best, among them Buju Banton, Sizzla Kalonji and Mavado.

Nailah’s Sick! Here’s Why.

Not in the literal sense.

Nailah Blackman

Ok… ok… let’s clear this up. The soca hottie’s in need of no pill or treatment. Nailah’s perfectly healthy but she’s got a sick ambition that’s almost guaranteed to take her on a whirlwind career adventure. Truth be told, female artistes in the Caribbean’s less structured music industry, often find themselves falling victim to the rigors of their reality. It’s really not as glamorous as they make it look on social media. Nailah Blackman’s however in the running to becoming one of the caribbean’s biggest superstars if she continues to play her cards right.

Here’s why we say that!

  1. Nailah’s got grit. Unlike every other female soca artiste in the business, Nailah’s stuck to her goal of delivering music the people will enjoy year round. She isn’t getting caught up in the politics of the music business, and since she kicked off her career just about two years ago, she’s remained consistent.
  2. She understands the power of Social Media. In a world where social media platforms are ruining lives, perpetuating violence and encouraging gossip and vanity, Nailah’s using it all to her advantage. She’s got her fan accounts, her hashtag game on lock and she’s filling in all the Caribbean entertainment gaps with posts on all the trending platforms, which essentially keeps the buzz on her, constantly.
  3. She’s focused on upping her game. Now, the harsh truth of the entertainment industry is that from the moment you stop trying to be the best, you fall all the way to the back of the class. In the Caribbean especially, the odds are harshly against the rise of female entertainers. For Patrice Roberts, Nailah Blackman, Destra Garcia, Spice, Shenseea, Fay Ann Lyons, Nessa Preppy and the lot of gals in the race, consistency and development is imperative. In her short time at the forefront of the music industry, Blackman’s team has secured her placement at the BET Awards, Coachella and other top tiered industry events. She’s been to Jamaica Carnival and several other major Carnival related events worldwide. Truth is, she picked up steam and she has never slowed down.
  4. Nailah’s interested in meaningful collaborations. Maybe she’s a true believer in the Law of Attraction but it seems like this has been working to her advantage. Nailah’s been on a relationship building drive. Her collaborations, in a very short space of time with artistes like Kees, Shenseea, Fay Ann Lyons, Sekon Sta and Erphaan Alves, Tarrus Riley and Ding Dong have proven incredibly effective. She’s pretty much been building a catalogue of music that’s unparalleled while at the same time, benefitting from powerful networks. Now, she’s on to creating her debut album, outside of Trinidad and Tobago.
