Two weeks ago, legendary reggae artist Mikey General – in collaboration with Blakkwuman22 Music – got together to shoot the official video for his single, Up & At Them. The song is featured on the Survive Riddim, released on March 21st via the aforementioned imprint.
Clips for the video were captured at Exodus Recording Studio (off Red Hills Road), as well as in the Ackee Walk district, an area that was instrumental to Mikey General‘s career, in the early years. The music video, which was shot by Maria Jackson 27, is currently being edited, and will be officially published in a few days.
In addition to Mikey General, the Survive Riddim also features songs by veteran bass player and singer Wormbass, vocalist Earl Smith Jr. – who is the son of famed guitarist Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith – and lyricist, songwriter and producer Karamanti (the CEO and owner of Blakkwuman22 Music).
