If “itttssss Chaaaaarly” Black’s intention was to brainwash us into believing he’s Jamaica’s fastest rising deejay, it worked on me. Between the catch phrases about getting “rich this year” or being “multi-talented” or how “dem cyaan stop deh country bwoy”, Charly Black has somehow made himself into the Bruce Willis of deejay one liners. Aside from within Jamaican corridors, he hasn’t been given much notice internationally– although it was encouraging to see him in Eddie Stats column mix this week. With an upbeat snap and lowly reverb, Black builds this new track, “Traitor Dem,” into a finely balanced pace of swagger and flow. Other tracks like “Rich this Year“, “Money Dreama“, “Bubble” and “So Mi Like It” just prove Charly Black is growing at double speed. After all, the fastest man in the world is from Charly’s very own Trelawny.
