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.

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.

LargeUp Premiere: Damian + Stephen Marley Remix Eric Clapton

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Clapton-Marley-Every-Little-Thing

The connection between Eric Clapton and Bob Marley runs deep. “Slowhand”‘s 1974 version of  “I Shot the Sheriff” is perhaps the most famed reggae cover of all-time, and the song that gave Marley’s music some of its earliest mainstream exposure in the U.S. To this day, it’s the only Clapton single (solo or otherwise) to hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the only Marley composition to do so as well.

LargeUp Premiere: Jo Mersa’s “Comfortable” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Jo Mersa Comfortable Video

“Comfortable” is one of two tunes from Jo Mersa, eldest son of Stephen Marley, on the just-released Ghetto Youths International compilation, Set Up Shop, Volume 1. And, like Mersa’s first single “Bad So,” it’s something a break from the family tradition of cultural reggae: young Jo has a very modern dancehall sound geared towards the ladies and the club.
