Audio: Popcaan x Dre Skull, “The System”

Words by Jesse Serwer, via The Fader

Last week, we brought you the world premiere of the first tune from Dre Skull’s Loudspeaker riddim, Machel Montano’s “Go Down.” A few days on and we now have Popcaan’s “The System” taking things in a completely different direction—both for the riddim and the artist himself. Known for his breezy party tunes, Poppi throws his hat into the social commentary arena with “The System,” and he wears it well. The Vybz Kartel heir apparent is rapidly developing as an artist, and, after hearing “The System,” it seems conscious material will be part of his repertoire. Stream it below, and look out for more tunes from Loudspeaker to drop soon, via Mixpak.

Gaza Some More: Busta Rhymes x Vybz Kartel, “Wine & Go Down”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

We like Busta when he’s on his New York shit, we don’t even mind Busta when he’s on his global domination superhero/villain shit, but we really love him when he’s on his Jamaican shit. Ever since he made his debut with Leaders of the New School back in ’91, Trevor Smith has been one of hip-hop’s primary ambassadors for dancehall culture, with his rugged, deejay-inspired flow, and his frequent collaborations with dancehall artists.

LargeUp Premiere: Machel Montano x Dre Skull = “Go Down”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

For his new Loudspeaker riddim, Dre Skull of Mixpak Records and Vybz Kartel’s Kingston Story fame has connected with none other than the reigning Groovy and Power Soca monarch, Machel Montano. While Machel has been known to step out of his high-BPM soca comfort zone on occasion, you’ve never heard him on a pure dancehall riddim quite like this before. This one is definitely gonna make both the gyuls and gyals go dung this summer, in what we expect will be a sexy show of Trini-JA dancefloor solidarity. Stream “Go Down” below, preview the rest of the tunes here, and look out for the full riddim release, also featuring Beenie Man, Popcaan and Natalie Storm, here on May 22.
