“I-Yiy-Yiy Gonna Fight Till I Die Yiy-Yiy!!!!!!... Microphone in my hand I try to do better….” Sings Chardel perfectly capturing the essence of the title in the chorus of her contribution to the Nuh Fraid Riddim.
Originally my influence for the title came from the phrase “COME TES MI NUH”!!!! (Come and challenge me). Whether that be Bad Man, Sound Man or Bad Mind Man – we will meet you head on because we “Nuh Fraid” ah you (Not afraid of you).
Listening back to classics like the ‘Trilogy’, ‘Military’, and ‘Street Sweeper’ Riddims - I wanted to re-create that original dancehall pattern. Comprising the unique modern balance of today’s dancehall, whilst still not losing that real authentic feel.
Nuh Fraid features a wide range of international artists like Delly Ranx and Mr Murphy from Jamaica and the UK’s very own Mr Diamond (Birmingham), Peppery, Mexican (Manchester), as well as Chardel, Ill Mega, Ras Iwhan, and myself from London.
I have to big up all the artists who brought their creative talents to this project to bring it to life - also many thanks to Kennedy (Prezedent) Mensah who with his vision and input has made this project possible.
Last but not least - Give Thanks to the Most High.
THE NUH FRAID RIDDIM (REBLE WORLD RECORDS) WILL BE AVAIABLE ON ALL DIGITAL PLATFORMS
