Words by LargeUp Crew—
2012 is a huge year for the Caribbean as many of its nations are celebrating 50 years of independence. This milestone ties into the anti colonial struggle which Rastafari is largely based on and the general sense of nationalism that makes Caribbean music so powerful. To mark the occasion we’ve launched our LargeUp Sessions Mixtape series, and to rep T&T we got one of the top Soca DJs in the game, Massive B‘s D-Life. He’s a resident selector on NYC’s Hot97, Miami’s Mixx96 and Sirius Satellite and happens to be a good friend of ours here at LargeUp.
So with no further adieu, stream or download on the player below, you may wanna draw for your rum stash and if at all possible, bring the mix outdoors, buss a whine and lick a shot for T&T! Also, if you spot D-Life rocking w/ Massive B at this years West Indian Day Parade on monday in Brooklyn you might get yourself a limited copy of the CD – and as always, LargeUp yourself!
