Banks, a Jamaican raised in Brooklyn and frequent co-host on our radio show The LargeUp Sessions, has released some dope videos and tracks over the last year, getting us hyped for his new mixtape.

Mikey-Jarrett-pic

Mikey Jarrett, a Brooklyn legend, may be best known for his 1992 hit “Mack Daddy,” but 20-plus years later, he’s still on the scene — this time, with a collaboration with prolific producer Prince Polo. The Jamaican deejay and New York producer are coming together to bring some vintage dancehall vibes with their new joint “Haul and Pull Up.” It’s the first release off Polo’s new album Mix Me Down Operator, which is out tomorrow, and also features guest appearances from LargeUp family Addis Pablo and Bajah, along with legends like Ranking Joe.
