Prodigal presents: »Global Gangsta« (Showa Step).

posted on May 28th, 2011 by in Audio, Jamaican Artists


When we spoke to Dylan Powe from Prodigal Entertainment back in November last year, shortly after he had unleashed Wiley’s tune on the »Showa Eski« riddim, he already told us that the »Showa Eski« would only be one of three riddims in a 3-part Showa riddim installment dedicated to the people of West Kingston.

Now, the second Showa riddim is about to drop. It is called the »Showa Step« and features spitters from the UK, the US and Jamaica: Wiley, Joell Ortiz and Einstein with Wayne Marshall providing the hook.

Genres collide when Dancehall meets grime and rap on the »Showa Step« riddim. Three of the best spitters from across the world have their rhymes fused by an infecious chorus from one of dancehall’s hook-masters, and they are all declared global gangstas.

Makes me remember the good old days back in 2006 when we used to hang out there sippin Vodka OJ with Dylan and Natalie Storm. Nice 1!
