Coming off a summer in which he headlined Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest and topped the Jamaican charts with “Buss A Blank,” I-Octane is gearing up to release his follow-up to last year’s Crying To The Nation. “Love You Like I Do,” the first single from the new project, currently slated for early 2014 via DJ Frass and Tad’s Records, finds Octane taking a different path with a rootical reggae riddim. Will Octane be following a similar path to Busy Signal and Mr. Vegas, and dropping a reggae-themed project? We’ll have to just wait and see.

Our LargeUp crew couldn’t help noticing a new phenomenon in dancehall. It seems the business bug has bitten, with a growing number of Jamaican deejays taking charge of their careers, and profiting from their individual brands via new fashion ventures. I-Octane, Mavado and Konshens are already on board with the trend, so we thought we’d give you a quick overview… pree dem nuh?

Hello yello!!! Today is the 41st birthday of one Rodney Price—Bounty Killer. But the Warlord/5-Star General isn’t sailing off into middle age quietly. His latest movement sees him team once again with dancehall dude-of-the-moment (and this year’s Reggae Sumfest Dancehall Night headliner) I-Octane on a new riddim from Markus Records.
