Chronixx-Junior-Reid-SummerStageInstaNEW

LargeUp has teamed with OkayplayerFederation Sound and Rice & Peas to bring Chronixx and Zincfence Redemption, along with Junior Reid, to Central Park Summerstage in NYC on July 26th. The show, which is absolutely free, takes place from 3-7 p.m. at Rumsey Playfieled near 72nd Street and 5th Ave, and celebrates the 15th anniversary of both Okayplayer and Federation. We don’t need to remind you of the impact that Chronixx has had on reggae music over the last few years, or do we? In any case, this event is going to be huge!

The year was 2003, and dancehall was at its peak, attaining unprecedented infiltration of the U.S. and other global markets. Naturally, given the long-running connection and similarities between dancehall and rap, the hip-hop world wanted a piece of the action, and tracks featuring big-name rappers ‘longside  the day’s top dancehall deejays proliferated. One major result of this phenomenon was Def Jam’s Def Jamaica project, featuring the Meth and Red x Damian Marley collab “Lyrical. 44,” among other memorable tunes.
