To support Japan's earthquake relief, Japanese sound system and ambassador of Reggae music Mighty Crown and their management team Irish and Chin, are calling on the Reggae community and all people for help. Namely, Mighty Crown and Irish and Chin, with support from VP Records and media partner Irie Jam Radio, are staging "Reggae 4 Japan" on Thursday, April 21 at York College in Queens, New York. Slated to feature top Reggae music acts, the benefit concert's proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Japan Earthquake Relief. The country of Japan has experienced great devastation and crisis as a result of the earthquake, subsequent tsunami, nuclear power plant explosions and partial meltdown. Japan is in great need of aid as they deal with the aftermath of recent horrific events.

Mighty Crown, who was in Japan at the time of the Earthquake, witnessed the impact of the disaster on their homeland. Passionate about aiding Japan, Mighty Crown reached out to the Reggae community and they responded without hesitation. It's clear that Reggae music is a universal music and force that unites all people. Just as Japan wholeheartedly supports Reggae music and culture, the Reggae music industry/fans support Japan. "In this life, it's all about helping each other....when one is in trouble -- you reach out and help," says Masta Simon, co-owner of Mighty Crown. "I am forever grateful for the support of the Reggae community in this effort......with such a great need for relief in Japan, I am calling out to all people to help." "Regardless of one's connection to Japan -- be it Reggae music, electronics, automotives, fashion, etc. -- I am calling on everyone to come out and support," Masta Simon adds passionately.

VP Records dutifully stepped in to support "Reggae 4 Japan" by providing the majority of entertainment pegged for the line-up. Their swift response is an indicator of the commitment that the Reggae industry has to helping Japan. "We are happy to be involved in 'Reggae 4 Japan,' as Japan has incessantly embraced Reggae music and culture over the years," says Chris Chin, owner of VP Records. "We are showing our care and appreciation for Japan and thank our artists for donating their time and talent for such a good cause.......ultimately, we would like to see large numbers of people come out to support this extremely important event.

The line up will be announced in the days to come, once appearances are finalized. Based on the artists who have already confirmed, "Reggae 4 Japan" will be a benefit concert of epic proportion and for a great cause. IrieJam Radio also graciously stepped in to rally support from other radio outlets in the Tri-State area by coordinating advertising efforts, interviews and other support. IrieJam Radio is lending a hand to ensure that "Reggae 4 Japan" is widely promoted and well attended.

This year is Mighty Crown's 20th Anniversary, but without question -- the spirit for celebrating this year has changed since the disaster. Because of Japan's crisis, even after "Reggae 4 Japan," Mighty Crown will be dedicated to helping their homeland overcome. Specifically, Mighty Crown/Irish and Chin will donate a portion of proceeds from their anniversary billed events to support efforts in Japan. Mighty Crown encourages all people to come out to the "Reggae 4 Japan" benefit concert on April 21. More event details will follow. Due to limited space, only select media will be permitted into the event. If you are a media outlet interested in covering this event, please contact Irish and Chin soon.

This is the official video of Nah Let Go from Gyptian, the second single after his big hit Hold Yuh, which some ignorant bloggers think the Hold Yuh riddim is from Diplo. Take a look, the tune is climbing up quickly on the charts.

The Bay

Just got back from "The Bay"(San Francisco Bay Area) Spent much of my time hanging out in Oakland where the music and party scene is jumpin off. Here is a random selection of some new things I was digging. First, Droop-E (son of E-40)dropped a mixtape called Black Diamond Life that is gonna be my Spring anthem. Check this video out of "Hungry" from the album. The album samples Sade's Black Diamond and since Sade doesn't let folks sample her work the album by Droop-E is for free. The group Zion I is another favorite from The Bay. This reggae infused track "Many Styles" is one of the many stunnas on the album "Atomic Clock". Of course a trip to the Bay Area is not complete without listening to some E-40. Check out this video for "Bitch" featuring Too Short. It also has some turf dancing in the video which is catching fire across the nation. The Turf Feinz video went viral on You Tube a while back, check it out in all its glory. This is just a small sample of what is coming out of The Bay. Look out for future posts from this diverse music scene.
