Celebrating his latest release Josh X has the streets and clubs nationwide on fire 🔥

ESKIZE MWEN was written by JOSH X and BAKI and produced by DJ Swanko. The music video was directed by Mocka Blu. Eskize Mwen, the new Summer anthem of 2021, is available on all streaming and download platforms now, via the KSR Records label imprint. "Eskize Mwen" is a kickoff to the Summer.

As we prepare for Post COVID life, this record looks to fuse together the Brooklyn "Drill" sound with Koompa to create a new, fresh and fun music movement. I was very excited to collaborate with my Haitian brother and Rap Heavyweight, Baki, as his energy is crazy!," mentions Josh.

Throwback to this past weekend when Flatbush and Caton Avenues in Brooklyn was renamed in honor of the late Dr. Roy Hastick Sr.

Local politicians, leaders, community members, and family did not let the inclement weather stop them from saying the last goodbye to the late Caribbean entrepreneur and leader.

Born in St. David’s, Grenada, on May 10, 1950, the celebration was timely and a great way to continue honoring his life.

In 1937, tens of thousands of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent were exterminated by the Dominican army, on the basis of anti-Black racism. Fast-forward to 2013, the Dominican Republic’s Supreme Court stripped the citizenship of anyone with Haitian parents, retroactive to 1929, rendering more than 200,000 people stateless.

Elena, from acclaimed filmmaker Michèle Stephenson, profiles one young woman of Haitian descent, Elena Lorac, and her fight against these anti-Black, anti-Haitian laws.

Tonight Elena will air as part of the Shorts Program in season 13 of AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange on WORLD Channel and worldchannel.org beginning on Monday, April 26 at 8 pm ET.

VP Records co-founder, and one of the reigning matriarchs of Reggae music, Patricia “Miss Pat” Chin, continues to lead the largest independent label and distributor of Caribbean music. Her energetic and engaging autobiography covers her family history, her relationship with her late husband Vincent Chin - and to Jamaica overall - her arrival in New York City in the late 70s, and of course her crucial role in the founding of VP Records. The book is packed with fantastic archival images spanning the emergence of Jamaican music as a cultural force in the 1950s up until today, bringing Miss Pat’s revelatory memoir to life. Perspectives from business people, politicians, and musicians including Chris Blackwell (founder of Island Records), Edward Seaga (Former prime minister of Jamaica), singer Marcia Griffiths, and Lee “Scratch” Perry further light up the amazing story of Miss Pat’s life and experiences.⁠
