You Rate It: Wayne Marshall, Assassin + Damian Marley Connect On “Stupid Money”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


Rick Ross, the master of using food as a metaphor for the trappings of success, would approve of how Wayne Marshall begins his verse on his trappings-of-success-themed “Stupid Money”: Cheddar cheddar, genuine leather/From bully beef to lobster bruschetta.

Wild Apache Rides Again: Watch Supercat’s Surprise Appearance at On Da Reggae Tip

Every year as New York City gears up for Labor Day Weekend, Massive B’s Bobby Konders and Jabba along with the Tri State’s leading urban radio station Hot 97 throw a monstrous annual concert dubbed On Da Reggae Tip. The genre’s biggest artists perform for an always-enthusiastic audience, and Friday night’s edition was no exception. Reggae and dancehall giants Stephen and Damian Marley, Mavado (who brought out surprise guest Nicki Minaj), Cham, Mr Vegas, Konshens and many more performed.

But it was during Shaggy’s set that dancehall’s most elusive personality not only showed face—with some seriously long hair and beard— but dished out classics like “Vineyard Party” and “Ghetto Red Hot.” That’s right, the Don Dada, Original Wild Apache and Boss of all Bosses, Supercat, tore down Hammerstein Ballroom last night, and everyone who missed it can all cry together, or maybe hope that he returns to the stage more frequently as it’s been years since his last performance. Catch Hot 97’s footage from the scene below:

You Rate It: Damian Marley + Sean Paul’s “Riot”

Words by Jesse Serwer—


With electronic dance music’s influence on dancehall growing considerably lately, two of the earliest adopters of the trend, Sean Paul and Damian Marley, have gotten back on the train with their latest, “Riot.” (Sean’s last LP Tomahawk Technique was geared more towards European clubs than the dancehall; Damian’s 2012 collaboration with Skrillex, “Make It Bun Dem,” is perhaps the most visible fusion of dubstep and dancehall)

VIDEO: Wayne Marshall’s “I Know”

Words by Kimberly Burgess—


In his video for “I Know,” Wayne Marshall pushes the good guy we have all come to love aside–rude boy Marshall is so much more captivating! As he tells a rival, “you’re no threat to me,” stealing away with the man’s girl right in the same dance, it’s obvious that the singjay who built his career as dancehall’s soft-spoken, go-to crooner is stepping with new confidence since signing with the Marley Brothers’ Ghetto Youths International. Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and Sean “Young Pow” Diedrick produced this rocker, the first single off of TRU Colors, Marshall’s debut on the imprint and his sophomore album. TRU has a September release date.
