Words by Emily Shapiro

1love Give Thanks Praise

The Marley family has always kept busy in a variety of ventures including fashion and non-profit work. Now, they are combining the two to do some more good for children in the US and abroad. Their foundation 1Love has collaborated with Made for Good, an online store that sells socially conscious clothing lines, and Save the Children to create a line of t-shirts. Profits from the sales of the shirts, which are decorated with 1Love’s mission statement, “Youth, Planet, Peace”, will be used by Save the Children’s “Literacy Boost” initiative to create and stock libraries and train teachers and volunteers in literacy education.

LargeUp Premiere: Los Rakas Rep JA + Oscar Grant with “Hablemos Del Amor”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

los-rakas-rep-ja-riddim

You might be asking yourself right now: Los Rakas rep JA? Ain’t they those Panamanian dudes from the Bay? Yes, but they’ve just hopped on the brand-new riddim called Rep JA, from the streetwear label (and LargeUp family) of the same name. Gyptian, Laza Morgan, RDX, Kardinal Offishall, Dre’ and the Kid Daytona have all voiced the riddim but the inclusion of Los Rakas struck us particularly notable. Not only are we longtime supporters of Los Rakas and their efforts to bridge reggae, Panamanian plena and hip-hop but we knew they’d come with something extra strong.

If you think excess and lewd slackness lyrics in Jamaica is something new, you clearly aren’t up on The Jolly Boys, JA’s legendary Mento band who were Yard’s original rock stars! With a history in music dating back nearly 60 years, and their namesake a result of Errol Flynn’s choosing, these cats have a unique place in music history.
