Bob and Wine: Tifa Gets Punchy in “Champion Bubbler” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Major Lazer in Kingston, Jamaica

It’s been a few years since Tifa first grabbed our attention as part of TNT, or the Badda Badda Gals, with Natalie Storm and Timberlee. While her former crewmates have gone quiet recently, Tifa has stepped up her presence, emerging as dancehall’s most popular young female artist—and a potential heir apparent to the genre’s perpetually retirement-threatening queen, Lady Saw.

Love Punany Bad

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve indulged in our usual Throwback Thursdays routine.

Video: Popcaan + Friends Hit The Bike Track For “So We Do It”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Popcaan So We Do It

New York producer Dre Skull released the well-regarded Kling Klang riddim in 2012 and, to keep the momentum going in 2013, his label, Mixpak Records, is releasing a trio of videos for singles on the rhythm, which was voiced by Beenie Man, Tifa and others. First up is “So We Do It,” from Popcaan, whose upcoming debut album Dre Skull tells us he’s working on. Shot by Andy Capper, director of Snoop Lion’s Reincarnated documentary, “So We Do It” features the stunting of local Kingston motorcycle crew Crazy Bikerz, who do their best to steal the show as Poppy rides shotgun. Nope, no daredevil maneuvering from Poppy. Dem call him di Raving King, not the Biking King.

Video: Watch Snoop Lion’s “La La La”

Words by DJ Gravy—

As you’ve probably heard, hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg recently took his career in a radical new direction, inspired by reggae, Bob Marley and the message of Rastafari. Snoop spent some time in Jamaica last winter to work on his debut reggae album, holding a press conference at Manhattan’s Miss Lily’s (where the pics in this post were shot) to announce his transformation from rapper to reggae artist and trading his canine status in for his new feline moniker,  Snoop Lion.
