AUDIO: Jah Vinci x Junior Reid, “Penitentiary”

jah-vinci-junior-reid-penitentiary

More than a half-decade after he came to the reggae world’s attention as a member of Vybz Kartel’s Portmore Empire/Gaza crew, Jah Vinci has just released his debut LP Ghetto Born.

The dancehall/reggae singer has been on the scene since 2008, with tracks like “In My Life,” “Kill Dem Fast,” and “Money” showcasing his versatile vocal stylings. Now, he’s collaborating with artists like Beenie Man and none other than Junior Reid, who is currently in New York getting ready to perform at the first ever LargeUp SummerStage concert in Central Park this Saturday. Jah Vinci is far from the only artist to have been blessed with a cameo from Reid, however. Mr. One Blood’s 30 year career has been punctuated by appearances on dancehall, reggae, and hip-hop tracks of all stripes—check out some of the best here. “Penitentiary,” Jah Vinci and Reid’s duet, is a conscious treatise on the problems with the prison system over an EDM-inflected reggae beat—listen below, and tell us what you think in the comments.

Jimmy Fallon was truly, genuinely excited to have Chronixx as his guest on last night’s Tonight Show. So much so that he was talking about it days earlier, singing “Here Comes Trouble” on last Thursday’s show, asking Roots keyboardist and yardie James Poyser if he was up on the singer (C’mon James!)

LargeUp Audio: Stream Delly Ranx’s “Sweet Reggae” LP

Words by Jesse Serwer

DELLY-RANX-SWEET-REGGAE

Delly Ranx has been a major factor in dancehall music for years. Though he may be best known for his production work, which includes the groundbreaking Redbull & Guinness riddim (the basis for tracks such as Mavado’s “Weh Dem Ah Do”) with Stephen McGregor, he’s been a consistent factor as a deejay for years. Sweet Reggae is Delly’s fifth album and, while much of the LP follows with vintage reggae throwbacks, the album also mixes in a healthy dose of dancehall as well, rounding up all of Delly’s recent appearances, including “Juggle Me A Juggle” (on Mr. Vegas’ Protector riddim) and “Silly Billy” (on ZJ Liquid’s Good Book riddim).
