Hollice Mapp - We Want Justice

Hollice Mapp releases “We Want Justice,” a rally cry for black lives on his birthday.
Gouyave, Grenada – June 4th, 2020. Grenadian recording and performing artist Hollice Mapp known professionally as Mr Killa, releases “We Want Justice” on his birthday as a rally cry for black lives. “While I am grateful to live to see another year, many of my brothers and sisters have been robbed of their God given right to breathe, to live to see another day and to just be human.” The powerful anthem, finds Mapp, the first non-Trinidadian to win the Soca Monarch ttile (2019) purposefully riding a trap-beat as gesture of solidarity with African-Americans who are currently at the epicenter of the police brutality crisis. “Their struggle is our struggle and I want them to know that we are with them” says Mapp who splits his time between his residences in Grenada and New York.
Written and recorded at Rebel 1 Studios, the state-of-the-art multimedia complex Mapp built in his hometown of Gouyave, Grenada the powerful and haunting track finds Mapp tackling the complex issue of systematic racial oppression while exploring possible solutions. Familiar rally cries associated with the Black Lives Matter movement can be heard throughout the song including “I Can’t Breathe” and “No Justice, No Peace.” George Floyd is among the many names Mapp calls in a touching tribute to the victims of police brutality.
Mapp an active philanthropist and founder of the not-for-profit organization, the Hollice Mapp Foundation pledges to donate proceeds from “We Want Justice” to the Black Lives Matter Movement. “We Want Justice” is available at www.mrkilla.com/wwj

Bulby York – Wiggle Wiggle Feat. Malica & Beenie Man

Bulby York - Wiggle Wiggle Feat. Malica & Beenie Man

Just in time for the summer season and your favorite playlist, “Wiggle Wiggle” delivers an updated version of a nostalgic favorite dancehall era. “I’ve noticed a lot of conversations about where dancehall is today with some raving about it and others not so much. I’ve also noticed a lot of credit being given to places and people with no regard to the Jamaican originators. Personally, I consider the new wave of “dancehall” as a subgroup of the 90s sound many are longing for.” – Malica. “Because of this I felt it was imperative to carry on the dancehall sound while still integrating some of my Fusion style in my vocal delivery. Teaming up with my co-writers Crystal Tais, Abe Williams Jr, Charles “Dr Do” Davids & Hamali helped solidify the “happy effect” that you find in some of the most popular dancehall songs. I feel it’s imperative that even if we create other new and incredible styles we can’t neglect the pioneering sounds by straying too far from the mold. Who better to do that with than Bulby York & The KING of The Dancehall Beenie Man.”
