Shaka Pow Ft. Joe Lickshot "Ol' Skool Vibes"


With Jamaica music slowly but surely returning to its vibes, Nicko Rebel Music has enlisted the services of veteran artists, Shaka Pow and Joe Lickshot to bring back the Ol' Skool Vibes Jamaican music and culture has been missing for far too long.
This collaborative single gives off a flashback effect with a sound reminiscent of the 1990s as Shaka Pow incorporates lyrics speaking straightforward of the issues that have caused today's society to be beleaguered. Chastising the declining economy, criminal trends and demonizing content in today's culture, Shaka calls for a turn back to the days when Jamaica gained popularity instead of notoriety. 
His call for a better tomorrow are based on his assessments on the island's former state, suggesting "Jamaica used to be sweeter, cleaner lyrics used to come through di tweeter, Jamaican did have less woman beater, drive carefully, children in di streets yah."
Shaka's thought-provoking words are followed by Joe Lickshot's unique vibe as the talented wordsmith makes his point clear that he wants no crime and corruption to hold Jamaica hostage, like it has for so long.
Ol' Skool Vibes embodies every Jamaican's yearning for better days and allows listeners to think back to the times when the island was truly IRIE and full of easy-going, fun vibes not infiltrated by negativity.
The song was released April 9th, 2013 and is available for purchase on iTunes as well as Amazon dot com.  It is a true throwback and will incite memories with every word verbalized on this groovy riddim, signaling the time to bring back the Ol' Skool Vibes to Jamaica Land We Love.
