Lately, the reggae world has been spoiled with the number of fantastic releases that have come out. I am struggling more than I usually do to keep up, as there is so much new material I want to share with TickuTalk fans! This mixtape featuring Kabaka Pyramid just dropped a few days ago with production by Walshy Fire from Major Lazer. The hour long affair features some new releases as well a ton of guest appearances.
The highlight of this mixtape for me is around the 16:30 mark, and it is a must listen for all reggae and hip hop fans regardless of whether or not you are a fan of Kabaka. Alternating between an American accent and his native Jamaican Patois, Kabaka literally has a rap battle with himself. When I first heard this section, I thought maybe Walshy or another guest artist was getting in on the action against Kabaka. But when he dropped the last line of the battle, I realized what was going on. MIND = BLOWN. King Kabaka proves he is one of the best lyricists in the game, whether it’s reggae or hip hop.
