This summer, Jagwa has spent time flexing his performance muscles and making his way back to the touring circuit after years in the studio. The artist has long since been known for his lyrical ability, credited with writing countless songs for well-known acts, like Bounty Killer.

When it comes to performing, Jagwa works the crowd like none other; the Jamaican talent having worked under a variety of arrangements from a DJ pairing in the club to having musical backing at open air festivals. After wrapping production on his most recent album, the emcee is ready to get back in front of his fans and create new ones as well. And what better way to do so than with some fresh tracks and a plethora of upcoming shows and concerts.

Jagwa’s latest EP Chinese Food has been well received by critics and general audiences alike. The project’s title track made waves on YouTube this year, challenging barriers in Hip Hop and breaking them down lyrically as a hypnotizing melody. An added layer of intrigue came with the release of the remix featuring Dblock/The Lox member Styles P.  The deeper meaning behind the song resonates well in all forms and is a reminder of the reward in confronting the realities of life.

The outcome falls right in line with Jagwa’s reggae crossover into a domain where Hip Hop reigns; as both his words and the tone combine for a unique blend of power that is delivered with passion over punch at times. With the buzz of the Chinese Food still going strong, fans can anticipate the next project to arrive in the upcoming months with his upcoming single I Know scheduled to release later this year.
