Break Away Mix-Dexta Daps, Chris Martin, Kabaka-free download

in DHU Free Mix downloads by

This Riddim Mix is addicting. Whether Chimney Records intended or not the melody seems to lull listeners into a sweet trance. Mixed and enjoyed by yours truly since the riddim dropped early this year, I thought its about time to spread the love.

Christopher Martin’s Pirate of the Caribbean and Dexta Daps 1 Minute battle for number the one spot. Kabaka takes on Jamiel and triumphs with Wake Up and See. Masicka rides this riddim like a pro with Fly Ova Dem while Vershon and OCG appear to stand strong against a host of young reggae veterans. This riddim exudes quintessential Chimney style and we love it.

Sizzla Teams up with Khalid for I’m so Grateful

in Vids & Lyrics by

(Intro) I’m So Grateful”
(feat. Sizzla)

I wanna say thank you for the time and the love you share
All the help and the effort just to get me there
When everyone turned their back you showed me how much you care
You believed in me never forget you I swear

I’m so grateful for all you’ve done to bless your soul
With the riches of love forever
Every last time
It’s a human blessing, hey, let it flow
It’s a pleasure

Put my trust in the most high and my prayers are so consistent
Who’d have thought, it would be like this today
Nothing beat prayers, lift up your red lion in the jungle
I tell ya, he whom have been blessed

Welcome to Grateful (strength is strength)
To realise and appreciate your blessings
Embrace your blessings from your heart
Express your gratitude from doing righteous deeds
Asahd, my son – I love you
Thank you God
I also want to thank all my enemies, for turning they backs on me
Thank you
I’m so…

I’m so grateful for all you’ve done to bless your soul
With the riches of love forever
Every last time
It’s a human blessing, hey, let it flow
It’s a pleasure

Power is up an hour, searching for a better way out
DJ Khaled!

I’m so grateful for all you’ve done to bless your soul
With the riches of love forever
Every last time
It’s a human blessing, hey, let it flow
It’s a pleasure

Peter Tosh Son Beat while serving time for Ganja

in Reggae News by
The family of Peter Tosh have recently filed a civil rights suit against the U.S. Department of Justice after the son of the legendary Wailer, 37 year-old Jawara McIntosh was beaten into a coma while serving time in a New Jersey jail on a ganja possession charge.
The February 21st assault resulted in severe head injuries and has since left McIntosh in a coma(now 4 months).
Attorney Jasmine Rand has represented the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and is now representing the Tosh family.
They are also seeking the immediate release of additional information and evidence from the incident, and have sent a request to the Department of Justice, asking for an impartial investigation into what transpired at the jail.

Have the prison authorities become so emboldened after the recent flare up of attacks against young men of color in the streets?

Does this have anything to do with the new administrations hard left stance on immigration? Since the proliferation of legalized ganja in US states it is sickening to believe that young men of color continue to be picked up, charged, convicted and sent to prison for possession of marijuana which is now being used in global pharmaceuticals.
I think its a good time to review one of Tosh’s most recognized anthems Legalize It.
Legalize it – don’t criticize it
Legalize it and i will advertise itSome call it tampee
Some call it the weed
Some call it Marijuana
Some of them call it Ganja

Legalize it – don’t criticize it
Legalize it and i will advertise it

Singer smoke it
And players of instruments too
Legalize it, yeah, yeah
That’s the best thing you can do
Doctors smoke it
Nurses smoke it
Judges smoke it
Even the lawyers too

Legalize it – don’t criticize it
Legalize it and i will advertise it

It’s good for the flu
It’s good for asthma
Good for tuberculosis
Even umara composis

Legalize it – don’t criticize it
Legalize it and i will advertise it

Bird eat it
And they love it
Fowls eat it
Goats love to play with it

Capleton Live LA- That Day Will Come/Jah Jah City

in Reggae News by

Capleton performed to a packed house last saturday night in LA. The Echoplex was shoulder to shoulder by 12 a.m. and the crowd seemed anxious. The Prophet was preceded by a nice segment from Gappy Ranks who had time to stress to the diverse mostly roots crowd that all contemporary music leads back to reggae and that goes for Hip hop and Afro beat he said. This seems the current sentiment in dancehall.

BLXXD MONEY-Official Audio x Lyrics

in Vids & Lyrics by
Mi nah watch no face beg no more pardon
Nuff drug money deh yah Cherry Garden
Nuff individual society applaudin’
You can ask anybody weh dem get dem start in
But nuff politician takin’ donation
So nuff criminal will never see a station
Never see a cell, not even a courthouse
But every Sunday we see deh take him boat out
North Coast resort and car dealership
Di construction company dem jus’ don’t legit
Usually wash he money turn around and hide it
When di kick back a come in di government delightedSo, police cancel operation
Cause no real badman a go station
Now if you check di situation
A Blood money run di nation
Come take a look inna Jamaica
Injustice in di place nuh
If wha you see nuh really phase you
Then you are the problem weh we face to

Was ’bout to buy a nex six enuh
Maybe then I wouldn’t have to be a prisoner
Maybe then I coulda not turn in my firearm
Police could nuh come remand,
Coming like me run an army
Was ’bout to be a politician too
Maybe then I coulda make any decision, look
Maybe then I make a 100 million disappear
Then mi act like mi nuh care
Watch out what mi pack in there
Because the sad reality
Inna Jamaica seh you status a you salary
Man deh road a carry one whole heap a felony
But dem have a family
A boost up di economy

So, police cancel operation
Cause no real badman a go station
Now if you check di situation
A Blood money run di nation
Come take a look inna Jamaica
Injustice in di place nuh
If wha you see nuh really phase you
Then you are the problem weh we face to

It’s out of many but one set of people feelin’ it
How that real, society you agreed to this
Things a reveal, the garbage the machine spit
No smoke screen, no river cannot conceal it
Now the system failing, the gap a get wider
A matter of time before a total divide yah
You cross the line, man draw quick fi remind you
If you built it ‘pon crime then crime will haffi find you
That’s how it’s been always, that nuh frustrate you like it do to me?
How much dead baby deh over Jubilee
How much yutes did ten when dem run into Tivoli
Now dem sixteen, hard fried, a fricassee

So, police cancel operation
Cause no real badman a go station
Now if you check di situation
A Blood money run di nation
Come take a look inna Jamaica
Injustice in di place nuh
If wha you see nuh really phase you
Then you are the problem weh we face to
