If you never did know our good bredrin and LargeUp contributor DJ Theory also happens to be a prolific DJ (duh) and producer with several dusty fingers dipped into the worlds of hiphop and reggae, respectively. Not too long ago, he sneak-leaked a track from Jahdan Blakkamoore, one of our favorite artists here at LU, called “Quick Money”–a brilliant flip of the same “Sabali” sample that Nas & Damian Marley used on “Patience.” With a Guyanese Brooklyn singjay attacking a rap beat built from an Afropop gem it’s kind of like the ultimate pan-tropical, OkayEmpire theme song and I had to have it for a blend on my Ghetto Palms column. Blakkamoore represents himself something fearsome, like Nas & Jr. Gong in one, plus a little Bounty Killer gone dubstep on the doubletime breakdown. Anyway, now that everything is properly signed off and mixed down, LargeUp is proud to present the world premier of “Quick Money” in it’s official, FREELY DOWNLOADABLE form. Stream below and then get it here. Quick! Before the federales storm in again.
