"BilliBlade Gets Tropical"

BilliBlade is a reggae artist from Hollywood, Florida. Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica it’s no surprise that his roots shine through in his music like the North Star in a summer night. “20 to Life” is a song that makes you move as soon as it starts. You can just sway back and forth to the reggae feel the whole way through. When “Searching” starts you get that same reaction but this one follows a different beat and the lyrics stand out a bit more than the last. It’s about looking for that perfect girl; most have been there. “Live It Up” sounds like the father of a Sean Paul song, it’s more demure than a club hit but still brings about a good time. If you’re a fan of authentic dancehall music, then you have to check out what BilliBlade is dishing about - Indiemusic Reviews


"Billiblade on the ‘rise’"

SOUTH Florida-based singer Billiblade takes a stand against racial injustice in his latest song Rise Up which is released on the Orcamusic Entertainment label.

With the Trayvon Martin case still fresh in the minds of many persons of colour, Billiblade says Rise Up is a call to action.

"I felt the need to speak out. The crime rate in Florida has seen more violence against teenagers with no criminal records being fatally shot just because of the colour of their skin," he told this column.

Rise Up is based on the recent violent incidents against African-Americans and teenagers in Florida where the unarmed Martin, 17, was killed by Latino George Zimmerman, in February 2012. Zimmerman was found not guilty last year of second-degree murder under the state's controversial Stand Your Ground law.

The song is featured on the Dayz Dunn EP which was produced by Orcamusic Entertainment which is owned by BilliBlade, who is originally from Braeton, St Catherine.

Born Linval Alexander McKnight, he migrated to the United States in 1996.

Billiblade has been around music since he was a pre-teen, as his father owned a sound system called Dynamic Soul.

He made his recording debut in 1999 - The jamaica Observer
