So I had a little time on my hand and my dog needed a little exercise. This was the outcome

I’m not even going to pretend like this song doesn’t go oh so hard! The video is dope also. I have also heard the flosstradamus remix that comes out officially later this month. Well just take a listen and….. I’ma wait till the beat go in! 

I skipped school to buy Snoop Doggy Dogg’s first album Doggystyle. Now some 17 years later he changed his name to Snoop Lion, made a pilgrimage to Jamaica and recorded a reggae album. Now I am not gonna pretend like I wasn’t skeptical of this move, but the music I have been hearing from this project hasn’t been bad at all. I actually like most of the songs I have heard thus far, and this one is no different. Torn Apart featuring the talented Rita Ora has a distinct reggae groove with a constantly pulsing kick drum reminiscent to Barrington Levy’s Teach The Youths on the Mr. Bassie Rhythm. But then Diplo; who executively produced the project; adds his skillful touch and provides a distorted melody that carries the song throughout. Maybe not the strongest lyrics, but sometimes simple is better. Anyway, you can just click the link and make a decision for yourself about the song. 

Katy Perry - Wide Awake (Reggae Remix)

I don’t care what anyone says, I don’t care about her commercials with pro-active, I don’t care that she was married to Russell Brand, I don’t even care about all the guys she used to date, or currently dating. I think Katy Perry is hot. When i first heard this record, I immediately thought that it belonged on a reggae beat. About a week later I came up with this beat with the help of my bass guitarist friend Taddy P. 

Take a listen and tell me what you think. 

Blue Is The Color

Everyone who knows me knows that my heart bleeds blue. I can’t wait for the EPL season to start again so that Mourinho can guide Chelsea to the treble (that’s three trophies for those who don’t know). If anyone wants to send me some Chelsea paraphernalia, feel free to do so. I will gladly accept. CFC4Life.
