LargeUp + OkayPlayer – Double Barrel (Reggae x Hip Hop) (Mixtape)
This was actually made just in time for Memorial Day Weekend barbecues. But my late ass up was doing all the partying and barbecuing and completely looked over this one. But the theme of this week is better late than never.
Read more about the release of this mixtape below:
Reggae and rap are two sides of the same coin, and the history of hip-hop is deep with sounds borrowed from Jamaica. Premiered today via LargeUp.com and Okayplayer,DJ Gravy and Corey Chase’s Double Barrel mixtape brings this connection to qthe fore, blending classic hip-hop tracks with the classic reggae tunes that inspired them. Just in time for Memorial Day BBQs!!!
That’s right. The mixtape has some of the hottest Hip Hop and Reggae classics fused into one. Perfect for myself, my father is from Jamaica and mama is from deep, Alabama.
Only thing that would’ve made this mixtape even hotter is mixing Southern Hip Hop into flow.
