 The song finds Bruse Wane kicking Poignant and meaningful lyrics over this dope Mantronik produced track. A.I, short for artificial intelligence, has been the hot button topic as of late, with most people not really knowing what the future holds with the invent of the new and controversial technology. Is humanity on the verge of being replaced with A.I based meta beings.

Let's face it, social media seems to have made people more socially distant than ever. Everyones eyes are glued to their cell phones, and technology seems to have overtaken spirituality as the new focus of worship.The song finds Wane beckoning for people to unplug from the meta verse and return "back to reality family and self love". You can check the visual for the official video below.

Judah The Prince drops a musical message of upliftment and encouragement in time for the holidays

Judah Tha Prince, commonly known as Krumbsnatcha to hardcore Hip Hop audiences worldwide as a member of The Gangstarr Foundation, has not only found a new moniker but also a new wind of creative energy and lyrical insight with this new single off his upcoming album Iron Lion of Zion.  

As many search for purpose and reasoning within many of the world's current hardships JTP offers the wise words "I am existence", a positive affirmation that each person is like a star in the constellation with divine purpose although this is overlooked due to worldly distractions. 

Appearing on the hook with the declaration that "everything will be ok" is the uprising talent Jahazeil, who happens to be the son of Reggae legend Buju Banton. Jahazeil is committed to providing the conscious- uplifting lyrics and vibes synonymous with his father's catalog that  has captured the international scene for nearly 3 decades as one of the genre's brightest stars. Jahazeil brings the energy of consciousness and upliftment over the mellow one drop influenced track produced by Pzazz Pystine.  He has recently appeared on tracks with legends including Spragga Benz, Delly Ranks and of course his father Buju.  

BE OK is now available on all streaming platforms. Look out for the release of the entire Iron Lion of Zion album upcoming in 2024 courtesy of Mind Power Entertainment.
