Your Last-Night Soundtrack: The Heatwave’s End-of-the-World Mix

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Last Party on Earth mixtape

So, we hear there’s one night before we all die in a cataclysmic, earth-terminating event predicated thousands of years ago by the Mayan calendar. If you’re like this dude, you’re preparing for the apocalypse in the 70-by-50-foot diesel-powered “ark” you built with your life savings. If you’re like us, you’re getting ready to party. (This is where we’ll be, for the record).

Three The Hard Way: Snoop Lion, Mavado + Popcaan Put Their “Lighters Up”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Lighters Up Snoop Lion Mavado

Just one week after the underwhelming “Here Comes the King,” the guy now calling himself Snoop Lion has unleashed the most interesting track thus far from his Reincarnated project. And he’s brought some notable guests from the dancehall world to “Lighters Up,” namely the Gully Gad Mavado, and Popcaan. Though unbilled, Jahdan Blakkamoore (who co-wrote “Lighters”) also lends his vocals to the track.

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.

Lift Off: Stream Cris Cab x Wyclef’s “She’s So Fly”

Words by Emily Shapiro—

The PUSH Artist of the Week, MTV’s initiative to highlight and support new talent in the music industry, recently put its spotlight on Cris Cab, but Large Up has been following the 19-year-old Miami artist for a while now. While Cab’s voice has an emo quality to it, his songs often have a pop reggae vibe not unlike that of his mentor and collaborator, Wyclef. Earlier this year, the pair collaborated on “Rihanna’s Gun,” a smooth response to “Man Down” also featuring Mavado that got our attention definitely took Cab out of any box we might have placed him in.
