Dancehall Rapper Vblock Dutch Drops Explosive EP - 'Mr. Greenonit'

Dancehall music is a genre of urban folk music which came out of Jamaica in the mid to late 1970s and is generally considered to be the one of the predecessors of  modern day rap. Vblock Dutch is a Jamaican born dancehall rapper and producer who migrated to the United States in the late 80's. First stop was Miami before moving to Brooklyn, NY in the mid-nineties where he began his music career. His story is one for the record books. 

Exiled from Jamaica due to run-ins with the government, Dutch, who is also known as Karlo W,  turned to music to work through his  many struggles. Coming up, he was often villainized  because of the exploits of his father, a continuous thorn in the side of Jamaican politicians. In 1989, after his father was killed in a raid, Dutch went deep underground and carried out a spree of atrocities as acts of retribution for what he called "unforgivable acts against my family" but had to flee the country when his cover was blown by opps. 


Now on the run and taking on a new identity, this new project "Mr. Greenonit" consists of 8 new songs mostly written and produced by himself, basically speaks of his affinity to things green. You can take a guess as to what those things are 👀

Dope songs on the project include Quarantine Blue which is an electrifying half dance/techno, part dancehall track about the struggles of  sex and romance during  the quarantine..."I cant wait for my skin to feel the sunshine." 

"I wanna do all the things we ever made time to do. ... I miss your sex, you know what I mean"

Act Like You Know which features singer, Honi Lane, is another banger. In terms of vibe, it's a cross between pop and hip hop with a sexy female hook and Vblock Dutch rapping with the island accent he still retains. 

"I'm a boss n*gga, bitches like me"

"Mr. Greenonit" officially dropped earlier this month and is available on all major platforms. Its definitely worth a listen.
