FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This Brooklyn native adopted Rastafari as her way of life from an early age of 14 and you can hear it in her lines. With the Caribbean culture surrounding her inside her household and out in the streets, you can see that she's well rounded. Princess Menen pours that unique sentiment into this mixtape. "Mi Ready" graces you with a powerful upliftment that will awaken things inside you that's been sleeping all your life!
This 7-track mixtape is perfect in length. The selections were mixed by DJ Wap Dem from Juggling Sensations. In less than 17 minutes, Princess Menen gives us the perfect tease. Long enough for us to get to know her but short enough to keep us wanting more. She uses versatility to take command and her presence is noticed in every track, proving that she is in fact ready to conquer this music scene.
From the beginning straight till the end, Princess Menen sets the standards high, not only by grabbing our attention but keeping it. She retains us with a cultural finesse; singing songs of truth & guidance, and leading us in a positive direction.
Princess Menen's "Mi Ready" mixtape is coming soon so be sure to subscribe to stay in the loop!

The single, "Burty Son" has put Red Square Production artiste, AMLAK REDSQ further into the public's eye. He has been getting great feedback from industry players and due to this feedback he's decided that hitting the studio again with the intention of mastering another great single would propel him even further. This would naturally be his next step forward.
"Despicable" is another brilliant collaboration from Amlak and talented producer Lamar from LMR Pro Productions. Lamar is the same producer who gave Amlak the initial recognition with his first premiere single and music video, "Jah Jah It's Your Love". One of my absolute favorites in his musical catalog.
Lamar has been busy with the recent release of the "LOVE NOTES RIDDIM" featuring artists like Chris Matic, Daville, Kranium among others and while in the studio working, he decided that it was time to work with the Red Square Production artiste on this new single.
If "Jah Jah It's Your Love" is any gauge on the chemistry between these two proficient individuals, the reggae/dancehall world should definitely pay attention to this new hit single because from what I've heard, this sounds like another exceptional project.
No official date has been given on the release but it should be any time soon and we here at The Wickedest Time will get first dibs on anything coming from the Red Square camp so naturally, we will keep you posted on any new developments!

The quintet includes siblings, Peetah Morgan (vocals), Una Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Roy "Gramps" Morgan (keyboard/vocals), Nakhamyah "Lukes" Morgan (rhythm guitar) and Memmalatel "Mr. Mojo" Morgan (percussion/vocals). After a five year hiatus, the group is back with their tenth album, "Here Come The Kings."
"Here Come the Kings" features tracks produced by Shane Brown, Donovan "Don Corleon" Bennett, and my personal favorite "Perfect Love Song," by Linton White. "Love Stoned," features vocals from another veteran in the business Shaggy.
Most recently, I had the opportunity to speak with him at their album release party for "Here Come the Kings" at SOBs in New York City and I might have even stirred up a little controversy that led Peetah Morgan to address it to the audience. Watch the video below.

Summertime in New York City is the absolute BEST! If you don't live out here, you need to make some serious life changes. If you are a reggae lover like me, then you will know that the summertime is filled with so much love, energy and happy vibes. Nothing but backyard barbecues, pool parties, live stage concerts (some of them are even free!), reggae beach parties, fireworks. The list goes on and on.
The entire summer is great, but my favorite highlight is every single year, Beres Hammond goes on tour.
This year, he brought along some special guests making this time around even better than the last. New York City was on lock on August 2nd when Beres Hammond and Luciano took the stage of one of the cities finest venues, The Hammerstein Ballroom; and left the crowd begging for more.
Not only did we get a full length Luciano show, we got a nice intermission with some classic juggling, we enjoyed a full length set with Beres Hammond, we got an exclusive treat featuring Shaggy and we even had the most entertaining host, Richie B to keep the night flowing smoothly.
The Hammerstein Ballroom was packed! People were all around looking great and showing love to everyone around. I would say at least 2,500 people showed up for this concert. Every single person had a smile on their face and we were all in good spirits. When you start hearing tunes like "It's Me Again Jah" from Luciano, "Double Trouble" from Beres Hammond, and my summer favorite, "Fight This Feeling" from Shaggy you have no reason not to smile.
If you didn't make it this year, do yourself a favor and start planning for next year. It's the best treat you could give yourself. This concert gave me great memories that will live on through the years!
