AUDIO: Download Young Ragga’s “Musiquilla” +“Antiestablishment”

Words by Sabia McCoy-Torres—


Young Ragga, a new artist representing San Juan, Puerto Rico, has just released Ragga Muffin Style, a collaboration with producer DJ Nature. The album is a refreshing return to the ’80s rub-a-dub era, infused with the lyrical flows and techniques of the present. Young Ragga’s desire to have the new pay respect to the old is clear in his album cover’s reference to Horace Andy’s Dance Hall Style. While the majority of the album is reggae based, “Antiestablishment,” an Afrobeat inspired track layered with rap lyrics that chant down Babylon, shows the diversity of Young Ragga’s style. Very worth downloading.
