Kabaka Pyramid Tackles Human Rights in Second Single “Borders” off His Debut Album Kontraband

Single Produced by Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley

New York, New York (February 5, 2018). “Each human being deserve a place to call their own, yet so many have to journey far from home, little children in the darkness all alone seeking freedom, it’s about time we break those borders down, There’s too much segregation we’re all a part of one nation” (Opening of Borders)

Coming off of the release of his first single “Can’t Breathe” from his soon to be released debut album ‘Kontraband’, Kabaka Pyramid is set to release his second single titled ‘Borders’. Very often albums are released and viewed as a comprised body of work and a song for each mood but not necessarily a theme of any sort. With the second release from his debut album, one thing we can be sure of is Kabaka Pyramid will stay true to his art form and give us food for thought, lyrics with a message.

As the song begins, you hear the voice of Kabaka Pyramid plea for a change to break the borders down as we all a part of one nation. In 2016 the number of displaced people around the world reached an all-time high and continues to increase. Driven by growing instability and conflict, large numbers of people desperate for a peaceful life-or simply the opportunity to earn a living-attempting the journey to a better place to call home.

Borders is the second single released off Kabaka Pyramid debut album, “Kontraband” which features Ghanaian – Afro Beats artist and U.N.H.C.R. (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) ambassador, Stone Bwoy, produced by Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley. The message couldn’t be timelier especially with the refugee crisis taking place across the world. Yet, for Kabaka Pyramid this is a single to bring awareness and enlightenment to the masses. As we observe and read the day to day development on changing laws to remove refugees and take away their opportunities to seek a place to call home, many of us forget the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Article 13: Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each State. Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

“I wanted to do this song because we as human beings need to do something about the refugee crisis around the world. It’s a shame to see the levels of separation displayed by governments and people when now is the time for unity. I also wanted to connect with my African family so I’m grateful that Stone Bwoy could lend his voice to the song and vision. We’re looking forward to big things this year and this song is the way we wanted to start it off” says Kabaka Pyramid.

Reggae Artist Mackeehan Release New Single featuring Jah Lil ‘Legal To Kill’

New York, New York (February 5, 2018). With a career of writing songs for some of the top Jamaican stars including Jah Cure, Luciano, Etana, and C Sharp, roots-lovers rock artist Mackeehan, is taking his career to another level. Now at the age of 36, Mackeehan is stepping into the spotlight and his recently released song ‘Legal to Kill’, which features reggae artist Jah Lil is making a lot of noise.

Growing up on Jamaica’s Gully Side in Cassava Piece, Mackeehan used music to uplift and inspire those dealing with the harsh realities of daily life. In 2006, he made it to the finals in the Jamaica Popular Song competition with his original song “Rise Up.” The song is now played every morning on Roots FM as the intro track for their morning program of the same name. For Mackeehan, music is the medicine to heal and help people seek a brighter tomorrow.

Mackeehan seeks to encourage people and inspire change through his music. His new release “Legal to Kill” exposes how police brutality, prescription drugs, and poor quality food are methods used by the government to legally kill the underprivileged.

Dem say dem love yah, but damn dem ah fake it
Dem set the law and only dem can break it
Protector fi yuh life, but ‘not guilty’ when dem take it

The revolutionary track, which also feature Jamaican newcomer Jah Lil, hits home to many in and outside of Jamaica today especially with the current ‘black lives movement’ taking place internationally. For Mackeehan “its a message for the voiceless, a message to mek the bigger heads know say we aware, but righteousness must prevail, open your eyes my people and live up”. ‘Legal to Kill’ is produced by Florida-based Kong Star Records.

“Legal to Kill” was most recently featured on a popular American hip hop blog site Thisis50.com.

Anything Goes Live!

ANYTHING GOES LIVE!

by- Black Empress 368

Riding on my bike, I enjoy a beautiful and clear Summer night with a soft breeze, hinting that Autumn is not far away. I arrive at the local hot spot, Suede Caribbean Restaurant  to DJ Norie’s press party for his annual “Anything Goes Live” Concert Series.

As I enter I’m greeted with a hue of partygoers and flashing cameras. I turn and to my surprise I see Hip Hop reality show celebrity, Safaree,  who unfortunately lost his uncle 6 days ago to a violent knife attack in his Palmdale home.  Safaree is slated to perform at DJ Norie’s ” Fire in the City” Concert this Friday at Irving Plaza.
Looking around,  I see a tall slender Sister in a black see-through 50s style dress, with a black camisole and skinny jeans. She’s Carmel in color with a loose curly Afro, an adorable smile, and a spicy attitude.  She’s known to many as DyDy .  On the opposite side of the outdoor space is the voluptuous Dancehall artist Tifa, dressed in a grey mesh mini dress with a black body suit, black booty shoes, styled with shoulder length curly black hair .  Catching the attention of any man within a five foot radius!
Meanwhile DJ Norie is graciously catering to the paparazzi, as onlookers sway to the music, chitchating and enjoying the vibe while sipping on their colorful cocktails.
Join the Power of Reggae family to see these artist and many more at the “Anything Goes Live Series” this Labor Day weekend. Click the link below for further information.
*POR wish to express our deepest condolences to Safaree and his family.
