LargeUp Premiere: Prince Polo x Mikey Jarrett, “Haul And Pull Up”

Words by Natalie Weiner—


Mikey Jarrett, a Brooklyn legend, may be best known for his 1992 hit “Mack Daddy,” but 20-plus years later, he’s still on the scene — this time, with a collaboration with prolific producer Prince Polo. The Jamaican deejay and New York producer are coming together to bring some vintage dancehall vibes with their new joint “Haul and Pull Up.” It’s the first release off Polo’s new album Mix Me Down Operator, which is out tomorrow, and also features guest appearances from LargeUp family Addis Pablo and Bajah, along with legends like Ranking Joe.

Throwback Thursdays: Max Glazer on Mikey Jarrett’s “Mack Daddy” + Burro Banton’s “Boom Wa Dis”

Words by Max Glazer—

For a decade and then some, Federation Sound‘s Max Glazer has been known all over the world as a great dancehall DJ. But back before that he was a hip-hop journalist, penning memorable articles on people like Big L for the great but somewhat forgotten ’90s magazine, On The Go. We gave Max his old pen back so he could take us back to the days when hip-hop and dancehall were blending together in new and exciting ways, and Bobby Konders and Salaam Remi were coming together to make classics with NYC Badmen like Mikey Jarrett and Burro Banton.
