Frequent Flyer: Ricky Blaze teams up with Kranium & Shaggy on “Overrated”

Words by Deejay Theory

One of the baddest tunes in the past couple months to resonate here at the LargeUp towers has been the latest from Ricky Blaze so it’s only right that we give it some extra shine. A Brooklyn anthem featuring the veteran Shaggy and young new star Kranium, this one really takes the energy to new heights with some of the best work we’ve heard from Ricky thus far. With an uptempo hip hop-meets one drop approach to the riddim, Ricky and the gang all ride it in their own style while keeping everything in the same coordinates. Considering this is only the first single, we’re anxious to hear what’s next from the full album of the same title coming January 2015.

Pop Style: Patty Nicius (Haiti/Brooklyn)


Welcome to LargeUp’s street style series, Pop Style. Every other Friday, we’ll be talking sartorial shop with the most impeccably dressed men and women of the Caribbean and the diaspora, from familiar faces to everyday people pon di corner. Along the way we intend to show the world what we’ve long held true—no one’s got style and swagger quite like the islands.

Blacka’s World: Elephant Man Does The “Shmoney Dance”

Words by Blacka Di Danca


There’s a new hit dance in hip-hop clubs and (pretty much everywhere else) right now, and it’s not the “dougie,” the “cat daddy,” and definitely not the “jerk.” By now we’re sure you’ve heard of the “Shmoney Dance,” made popular by Brooklyn rapper Bobby Shmurda. You might have even seen Team USA buss this one after winning basketball’s World Cup this weekend!

Pop Style Pon The Parkway: Kalique and Jaden


Every Labor Day Monday, Caribbean swagger and New York style come together at the West Indian American Day Carnival (aka the “West Indian Day Parade” or “Brooklyn Carnival”) on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. We decided to bring our street style feature Pop Style out onto the Parkway this year, and the cast assembled did not disappoint, reflecting the mixture of national pride and personal style we’ve come to expect from this most visually stimulating of days. We’ll be sharing shots and stories from some of our favorite people we met popping style pon di parkway all day here.
