Brownsville Rock: BRNGTN’s “Rise Of The Machine” Video

Words by Sherman Escoffery__

BRNGTN’s “Rise The Machine” video is not set in the fictional Brownsville like Antoine Fuqua’s Brooklyn’s Finest, where the cops take 10 minutes to respond to a shooting. In the real Brownsville, the constant and ambivalent presence of cops from the 73rd precinct, and the elevated tracks of the #3 train along Livonia Avenue, never lets you forget that this is the place with the highest crime rate in the New York City, and it still lives up to its hood motto “Shoot To kill Brownsville.”

This is the Way: Exclusive Spragga Benz Album Release Party

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton


Two things. First off, the new Spragga Benz video “This is The Way,” which eloquently explores the shotta side of his brand new Shotta Culture project–which you have probably heard us mention once or twice–demonstrating the proper way to hold a nine and also making extensive use of bumba-cam technology to give you a good cross-section of current styles in women’s swimwear at his poolside bashy. More importantly, the beat is one of the illest yet, showcasing producer Salaam Remi’s trademark hiphop-reggae fusion. Its backbone is a grimy crime-fiction piano vamp reminiscent in feel of Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story,” but backed up with a sizzling ska-ish rhythm section that recalls the best of Spragga’s back-catalog with tunes like “PumPum Conqueror”–watch the full video below!

Dubshot Records and Mena Suvari present: Future Sounds of Reggae, Vol II

Words by DJ Gravy

DubShot Records is a NYC-based digital label and music service primarily servicing “left of center reggae, dancehall and new school dub” in the words of founder Chris Schlarb. His lengthy tenure at VP Records and Ryko coupled with a great appetite for Caribbean music built him a great network and working with Sean Paul’s Road Manager, Steve Wilson, he eventually began promoting projects from Transdub Massiv, Rootz Underground, Jovi Rockwell and more. As his brainchild, DubShot Records was founded to promote artist from the Caribbean diaspora as well as those inspired by it.
