  Dancehall personality Jeffrey Hype has launched his first riddim project, the Training Yaad riddim on the new 1st Class Musiq label, which features a great mix of established and upcoming acts.   
Blak Ryno, a  former member of the Gaza, leads out the riddim project with Play Station', a brilliantly penned song that shows why Blak Ryno is still regarded as one of the best young deejays in the game today. He boasts: if ah that yu say mi ready/anyhow mi lift up the mattic offa mi belly...mi mattic have duppy shares inna the cemetery. 
Reggae star Turbulance contributes 'Chalice' where he burns a fire and summons earthquakes on news carriers, beggars, perverts and other social misfits. He lays down the laws about who in his smoking circle can draw from his chalice with great wit and emotion. 
Newcomer Bryka shows why he is one of the fiercest young voices in dancehall with the soulful 'My Pain Real', yet another song in the neo-soul style which is so popular in dancehall today. Bryka asks for strength from Jah to "carry the load" and reminisces on the early days of poverty in his own life and offers hope for anyone who has ever wondered if he or she can escape the powerful clutches of the urban ghetto.   
Laden teams up with Axygen for 'Get Gyal' where both use creative wordplay to boast about their 'galls' abilities. 
The riddim was built by engineer Point 9, and the project, officially released October 29th, is distributed by Hapilos 21st. 
"1st Class Musiq plans to do a video for Bryka's single while Blak Ryno's video will be shot overseas." Jeffrey Hype, who is a well-known associate of dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel, said. 
"This ah the first major riddim project, this is my label, a partnership between Russian and Jeffrey Hype  
and we are going all out for success."
