Rep JA x Chinese Assassin, Frenemies: Our folks over at Rep JA combined forces again with some of the baddest reggae and dancehall DJs in the game, Miami’s Chinese Assassin, to spotlight two of reggae’s most illustrious and celebrated artists–Beenie Man and Bounty Killer–who also happen to be rivals in what may be the most notorious and longstanding beef in dancehall music history. Frenemies was intended not to glorify that beef but rather to unify them, while spreading appreciation for two artists who have had a massive influence on reggae and Caribbean culture for two decades running. With early anthems like Bounty’s “Cellular Phone” to new classics like Beenie’s “Rum & Red Bull,” this mix should be required listening for dancehall fans. Download the mix  here.
