Kingston Noir: Pusha T’s Jamaica-Set “Blocka” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Pusha T at Matthews Lane

Pusha T recently traveled to Jamaica to film the video for “Blocka,” his just-issued single featuring Popcaan and fellow GOOD Music artist Travis Scott. Shot in and around Matthews Lane, the garrison community once ruled by the feared don Zeeks, the clip features the usual usual trappings we’ve come to expect when American rappers go down a yard for videos: bandana-covered faces lurking in the darkness, guns and go-go dancers. (To be fair, there’s also kids, higglers and a jerk vendor). It seems that Pusha made the rounds while in JA, so perhaps some more inspired visuals may soon be forthcoming. In the meantime watch the clip here:

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.

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.
