Fashion Fridays: 21st Hapilos Dancehall Tees

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Cham Lawless tee

What do RDX’s “Jump,” Tommy Lee’s “Psycho” and Popcaan’s “When Mi Party” all  have in common? Besides for being some of 2012′s biggest dancehall singles, they’re all now T-shirts from dancehall promo don Johnny Wonder’s 21st Hapilos, the digital distribution company which helped break them. Other tees—each of which features the digital single cover art of the respective song—include Cham’s “Lawless,” Kartel’s “Mentally Free,” Konshens’ “A So Mi Tan,” and the Wild Bubble riddim. Check them all out here, and go here to buy.

Words by Jesse Serwer, Photo by Martei Korley—

Twelve months after establishing himself as dancehall’s brightest new star, Popcaan had a relatively quiet summer this year. But it looks like Fry Yiy is ready to make up any ground lost to Konshens and fellow Gaza graduate Tommy Lee Sparta, dropping two sharp-looking videos in a matter of three days. First up is “Food Haffi Run,” on  ZJ Chrome’s Wild Bubble riddim, a darker, gangster tune with a noir-ish, graphic novel-inspired video to match.

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.

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.
