Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley – R.O.A.R.

in Vids & Lyrics by

“R.O.A.R.”

Big up the lion dem weh roar fi a cause
Defend your community at all cost
Never yet run, stand your ground to the last
Real outlaw, people love we, becauseNo old woman purse can’t get grab of
No juvenile ‘pon the road after dark
No visitors can get rob inna the park
Else bwoy will finish before dem start
No shotta can gi’ no juvenile gun
No stinginess when the site money run
No lickkle shop can get bruk inna the slum
All who perpetrator haffi pack up and run
No man do more dem share of kegs
One voice a talk just like Simeon says
No man no thief when the Ackee Tree bear
It mek war bruk out and it happen each yearNo man no frowns when a man a mek food
Kings at the road, yes a dem a get rude
No shot no buss when a man a keep treat
No man no disturb the children peace
No car no bruk when you hear dancehall keep
The last man weh try, burn up like rizzla sheet
Dem hear say me soon come, tell dem me reach
No man no talk when the general speak, ’causeMe and unno…

Dem go rob the chiney man and that a disrespect
And a gwaan like dem a don an’ still a money nah mek
And a gwaan like dem a captain a the damn ship wreck
Soon the nuff a dem a suffer damn twist neck
Tek it, mek an example, so the thing set
All violators know what come next
Misbehaving, trouble meking, yo, we won’t accept
Certain bwoy fi disappear ‘pon a magic carpet
All, nuisance get weh dem fi get
People live peaceful, no need to fret, ’cause

A we a guard dem out a street
Late at night when dem a sleep
Kids in bed and counting sheep
And when they wake up inna the morning, they’ll living sweet
Enterprise operation, ruff up well neat
Back to business, everything on beat

No man to more than dem share of greens
No man no frowns when no fish nah steam
No man no frowns when the pot waan clean
No man no drink out the don spurline
No man go road weh the big man said
No man no greedy a nah bruk bread
No man no go ’round the royal laws
All disloyal, get nail ‘pon cross

Me and unno…

A we a guard dem out a street
Late at night when dem a sleep
A we a guard dem out a street
Late at night when dem a sleep

A we a guard dem out a street
Late at night when dem a sleep
A we a guard dem out a street
Late at night when dem a sleep

DANCEHALL the origins of Hip Hop

The usage of sound systems and rapping over beats (toasting) was prominent in Caribbean dancehall, reggae, calypso, and dub music before the 1970’s creation of Hip Hop in America. Example of 60’s Jamaican dub artist, King Tubby. source

DJ Kool Herc, often considered one of the founding fathers of Hip Hop, discusses how his Caribbean Heritage influenced him and his work in Hip Hop.

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. We love it.

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
