With juggling back in full swing in the dancehall scene, an intriguing question arises: will this style be integrated into reggae, enabling conscious and cultural musicians to showcase their own lyrical talents on a single riddim?
Juggling has been a big discussion in the entertainment fraternity following its resurgence in the dancehall space, once again birthing hot singles that captivate music lovers.
In the 90s and early 2000s, juggling was a major part of dancehall, and it recently found its footing back in dancehall with the release of riddims like Banga Rock/Drift, Big Bunx Riddim, and the latest being the Dutty Money Riddim, which created a big buzz online.
Thus, with dancehall deejays relishing in the limelight of juggling, reggae artistes are now seemingly hoping to get a slice of the cake with juggling riddims of their own.
This was indicated when prominent reggae artiste Yaksta posed an interesting question to the public on his Instagram page on Thursday, asking, “How all now mi nuh see no reggae Juggling?” Continuing, the Ambition artiste sent his respects to the dancehall and inquired, “Wahm to Culture?”
The post has since sparked a debate in which social media users took to the comments to express their thoughts on the matter. One person suggested, “Yeah man bring back one a dem big one drop riddim,” and another said, “System get watered down for money. everything soulless these days so nothing is sticking.”
One person explained that while the upcoming producers would be, it would be difficult to get some of the leading reggae artistes on the riddim. “Young producer willing but to get the rite artist them Like you me g fi record problem and no links 😪 lol.”
