One blood and foreign mind artiste Junior Reid stands the test of time

Standard

Singer Junior Reid, whose music has been embraced by the hip-hop generation, is featured on Who Wan Test, the latest song by rapper Nino Brown.

The single is produced by DJ Khaled from the We The Best Music Group, a Miami, Forida company that has deejay Mavado on its books. It has major distribution through Def Jam Recordings, Interscope-Geffen-A&M and Universal Motown.

Commenting on the song, Reid said it not only keeps him current but introduces his music to a new demographic.

“I am working with several international acts to broaden my reach. People like Snoop Dogg (Lion), Fabulous, The Game and Wu Tang Clan are just some of the names I have collaborated with, so it’s evident wi taking the music to higher heights,” he said.

The 48-year-old Reid started in the music business in the late 1970s when hip-hop emerged from the New York City underground.

He scored with several hits during the 1980s including Original Foreign Mind. In 1990, Reid released One Blood, a anthem that topped reggae charts worldwide.

One Blood has appealed to many hip-hop acts who have approached Reid to appear on their songs.

Among his most successful collaborations have been with Alicia Keys on the No One remix; This is Why I’m Hot remix with Mims, and Died In Your Arms remix with T-Pain and Rick Ross.

Next year, Reid will release his Living Legend album.

ELEPHANT MAN rape case postponed

Standard

Dancehall deejay ELEPHANT MAN, real name O’Neil Bryan, will return to court in February after his ongoing rape case was postponed

Urban Islandz reports that the Jamaican singer appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s court on 30 October to answer the charges.

However, the case was delayed due to the shortcoming of a long-overdue forensic report and other outstanding documents.

Earlier this year Bryan was charged with sexual assault, which allegedly took place at his apartment on Hillcrest Avenue in Kingston.

His JMD$400,000 (£2,706) bail was also extended until the court date on 11 February 2013.

In a message sent to Urban Islandz inbox, Bounty Killer calls out his longtime nemesis Beenie Man for his public statement showing support for the gay community and apologizing for homophobic lyrics he did decades ago.
