Peppery Records On The Restart Riddim

As we continue to work on the Restart Riddim, we have been successful in securing a track from dancehall artist Peppery. The Jamaican-born U.K. based lyricist recorded on the riddim a few days ago; and as we have a come to expect from him he delivered a solid tune.

Peppery has been featured on other releases from Blakkwuman22 Music: the Just Believe Riddim and the Sprung Riddim.

The Restart Riddim is still in its production phase. Three songs have already been recorded and our hope is to have a total of five for this project.

Karamanti shares first single from her upcoming album “Start with a Prayer”

Earlier this year dancehall artist Karamanti announced that she would be releasing a new studio album. The initial plan was to have the project out at the end of May, but unfortunately that date was not met. The album’s release date has been changed on a couple of occasions; this is due in part to amendments being made to songs already recorded, as well as the addition of new music.

That being said, on Tuesday, August 17th, Karamanti shared the LP’s first single, Start With A Prayer. The hardcore dancehall track is presented as a form of devotion; and as the album is titled Spiritual Warfare, the lead single gives a clear indication of the lyrical content that is to be feature throughout the full project.

The rhythm for Start With A Prayer was created by Old Harbour (Jamaica) based producer AudioTraxx Productions, which is headed up by Lamar Thompson. Click here or on the image above to listen and download “Start with a Prayer.”

Lion Face I-Talawah records on BW22’s “Restart Riddim”

In a few weeks Blakkwuman22 Music, the record label owned and operated by dancehall artist Karamanti, will release the Restart Riddim. This is a hardcore dancehall juggling that will feature new music from various artists. Among those that will be on the project is popular Jackson Town deejay Lion Face I-Talawah.

Lion‘s new song will be a follow up to his now trending single, Survivor, which was shared earlier in the year on the Mountain Top Riddim (Haile Cush Records). Although that compilation featured mega stars like Jah Mason and Fantan Mojah, it was Lion Face‘s Survivor that captured the attention of the masses.

In an effort to maintain the momentum, two days ago Lion Face joined Karamanti in the studio and recorded a powerful song titled Truth. On the record, the hardcore lyricist touched on everything from the lowest form of poverty to the highest form of corruption; all while highlighting his Rastafarian faith.

Mutabaruka ft. Karamanti’s song “Black Love”

There was a lot of talk in the Jamaican media this week after the trimming of a 19 year old Rastafarian woman by a police officer came to light. Apparently the young woman, who was in police custody at the time, was trimmed against her will. 

On his radio program, Mutabaruka spoke extensively about the story while playing songs that were appropriate to the situation. One such song was Karamanti‘s Black Love. Click on the image above to hear a snippet from the show and click here to listen and download the full song.
