Following a blazing premiere by DJ Sunshine on Irie FM last Wednesday, the single 'The Ghetto (Ghetto Life)', has definitely taken on a life of its own and is saturating radio, the dancehall and the clubs.  

  Brooklyn-based raggatronic collective, We Chief, has now released the official single and video for “Time Fi Legalize,” calling for worldwide reformation of marijuana laws for legalization.   "It was a great experience working with The Ragga twins, they are the pioneers of jungle music in England and we were able to get a brilliant track done that I know dancehall lovers will enjoy, especially since it advocates legalizing ganja, a trend that I see is gaining momentum in Jamaica with the relaxation of the laws there," Geoff Rand, producer and frontman of the We Chief, said. The collective mixes reggae-influenced vocals over bass-pounding electronic beats to create their signature ‘raggatronic’ sound.   The Ragga Twins or "RTC" are a jungle group from Hackney, England, composed of London UNITY sound system veteran MCs Deman Rocker and Flinty Badman (real names David and Trevor Destouche). They are regarded as pioneers of jungle music, and one of their songs was the theme song for the popular HBO show, 'Ali G in Da USA' in 2004.    " The track is the initial release from a series of singles set to drop this summer," Rand said.    The song features WE CHIEF producer/front-man Geoff Rand, mega-producer Gosteffects (Dancing Astronauts ‘25 producers to watch in 2015’) and “pioneers of jungle music” , Ragga Twins. The collective is an anonymous tribe of musicians, singers and other artists united to cultivate creativity. A major music magazine, Magnetic Mag remarks that WE CHIEF brings, “a new energy/movement/sound to EDM culture, fusing reggae, tropical bass and other world rhythms with the traditional dance music sounds.”   We Chief Music burst onto the scene last year with the single Traits of a Chieftain, featuring Anthony B, and has done a number of other dancehall collaborations.   "We are continuing to work on a lot of new music and putting together our live show. Last year, we did tracks with TOK and Jahdan Blakkamore, and we got great critical feedback on 'Traits of a Chieftain' featuring Anthony B in international markets," Rand said.   WE CHIEF has received notable recognition from renowned platforms such as VH1, BBC Radio 1 and Large Up.

Masicka is no doubt the best lyricist in the game under the age of 25 in the dancehall music business today. Just listen to the single, 'Buss the Cylinder' where his asphalt visions are crystallized into a brilliantly orchestrated street anthem. Check the lyrics:
