Hot on the heels of his long awaited return to Jamaica, dancehall heavy hitter – Mavado hit the studio and teamed up with the genre’s dynamic duo – Razz & Biggy to compile an action packed mixtape ‘just for the fans’.
The mixtape aptly titled ‘So Suicidal’ mirrors the singjay’s track with the We The Best label boss – Dj Khaled called Suicidal Thoughts which is the lead single from Dj Khaled’s ‘Kiss the Ring’ album. The 26 track effort sees production credits from some of the industry’s most talented production labels such as DASECA, Big Ship and Chimney Records amongst others representing for the local team. Jerry ‘Wonda’ Duplessis, the producer who helped shape Wyclef and the Fugees’ Island-informed sound, is the man responsible for the guitar-laced ‘Souljah Girl’, other international production credits rest with Dj Khaled, Boi-1da and T-minus. With guest appearances from artistes such as Ace Hood, Chase Cross, Chipmunk, Meek Mill, Buccaneer and Akon, so it came as no surprise that the mixtape racked up thousands of downloads within hours of being posted online.
When asked about the process of putting the mixtape together, Biggy explained that it was just as much fun as it was hard work. “Mavado is a great product of our music, he has numerous songs, finding the right blend of songs took some doing, but the artiste is so good to work with that’s why the finished product was so quickly embraced by audiences far and wide”, explained a visibly pleased Biggy.
2012 has been busy for Razz & Biggy both in the studio and in the streets, with sold out tour dates and other combination efforts with artistes like Denyque and Bugle to their credit. In May 2012 the critically acclaimed - ‘I am Super Girl; Denyque’s mixtape debut was dropped and three months later in August ‘Psalms’; a strong mix of songs from the talented Bugle was unleashed. This year has been exceptionally good to Dancehall’s Dynamic Duo. With the end of the year fast approaching they reveal that their schedule remains just has hectic; “the lord has really blessed us, so we just continue to do our best in whatever we do, please the people and keep doing good work” Razz went on to explain.
