LargeUp Premiere: Jah Banks – “Jah Makin Music” Mixtape

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Just looking at the cover of Jah Banks‘ new mixtape, you get a pretty good idea of what he’s about —vintage reggae and dancehall (see the tropical forest) combined with classic Brooklyn hip-hop (witness the Williamsburg bridge). 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.

AUDIO: Island Boy Cartel – “Black History Month”

Words by Kaya.lah—


With Jamaican-Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall and prolific Virgin Island pop composers Planet VI at the helm, Island Boy Cartel is shaping up to be something special. LargeUp introduced you to the IBC crew a year ago and featured their initial release “Pretty Paper” with Wu-Tang Clan rap god Raekwon back in January. Now they’ve let go of a track called “Black History Month,” just in time for the annual U.S. celebration of the same name.

You Rate It: Delie RedX, “Loving Them Both”

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Delie RedX is a member of Brooklyn-based crew Noble Society, best known for their catchy, reggae-influenced hip-hop. Albums like 2008′s Take Charge have received acclaim for their seamless use of sounds from around the world, as well as their positive lyrical messages. The group’s been playing together for over ten years, during which time Delie has found time to both enter the fashion world, and support the musical development of underprivileged youth through programs like Boston University’s “Reach For The Stars” Academy. Now, much like fellow Noble Society member Jahdan Blakkamoore, Delie is stepping out on his own musically with the release of his upcoming solo album, Spiritual Warfare.
