Podcast: Jillionaire Interview 2020

Major Lazer’s Jillionaire sits down with Reggae Lover’s AGARD and Kahlil Wonda.

Jillionaire Interview (Major Lazer, Feel Up Records)

Jillionaire Interview

Christopher Leacock aka Jillionaire is a Trinidad-born DJ/Producer, entrepreneur, IT guru, and restauranteur. He shares insights and drops gems while taking us through his amazing career.

In this Jillionaire interview, he came off like a scholar and an elder. He dropped a lot of knowledge. Dropped a lot of history, and a lot of perspectives. This conversation was nice and mellow – very different energy than last week’s show with Walshy Fire. Nevertheless, Jillionaire had profound things to say and you will enjoy the discussion.

Jillionaire Interview (Major Lazer) on Reggae Lover


Buzzworthy

Big ups to Buju Banton who’s been continuing his promotion of Upside Down 2020. Last week that promo brought him to a couple of very big platforms. One of them being the Breakfast Club.t


And the other one being Trevor Noah’s Daily Social Distancing Show. Buju is doing it all.


He was also recently interviewed on Sway’s Universe Sirius XM, Shade 45.


He is covering all grounds right now. And he also was able to do a performance on Trevor Noah’s Show to close out that on that episode. He performed “Buried Alive” from the Upside Down 2020 album.


The Tastemaker

Buju’s got a song called “I Am a Jamaican,” which won the Jamaica Festival competition for 2020.

I love the song. I love the video. It speaks for Jamaicans living abroad and at home. The composition embodies the Jamaican patriotic spirit. Make sure you don’t miss that.

There is a new single from Kabaka Pyramid, a response to the current social injustice. The song, “Babylon Fallin,” came out on July 17th, 2020 with accompanying visuals. The music video features clips of scenes with the police facing off against citizens.


Kabaka uses his well-known lyrical prowess in this very conscious song. It’s social commentary. One of the themes that we’ve been talking about on this platform is the need for music like this. This song definitely goes on that list of revolutionary music. And it’s right on time.


The riddim is a different kind. It is not a “one-drop” beat. The message and production are coherent with the times. Regardless of what genre you subscribe to, once you hear the song, you hear what he’s talking about. If you’re anything short of an anarchist or a racist yourself, then you will feel the passion. The release has seen coverage by The Source, a nod to Kabaka’s rep as a dope emcee.


Soundclash Update

Every Friday Team Torment presents the Locked and Loaded dubplate showcase. Hear four different sounds weekly live on YouTube. Shout out and the entire Team Torment crew, King AP, Blackheart, and the rest of sounds.


Also in sound clash news, Soundclash.com has a new series coming out sponsored by Serato called No Jing Bang. The tournament will be hosted by D.J. English Fire, Chris Diamond, Walshy Fire, and Warrior Sound.

What do I love about this? First of all, it’s great to see the unity between Chris Diamond, Walshy, and Warrior. Two of the top online clash promoters have now joined forces. Secondly, the major corporate sponsorship for this sport is a huge win. Look out for more developments from the No Jing Bang series. We’re glad to see some growth in the SoundClash community as we all adapt to this new normal.

Coming Up


This season, we will bring you more interviews due to what’s going on in the world right now. Some great potential guests have definitely freed up. We look forward to sharing more exciting, insightful conversations with you. So stay tuned.

Walshy Fire: No Negative Vibes

Our special guest is Walshy Fire from Major Lazer. 

We enjoyed reasoning with someone that AGARD and I have known for decades. Before the podcasts, and before all the fame. If you’re not familiar with Walshy Fire I don’t know what rock you’ve been under. He has been everywhere in the world to deejay. 

Walshy Fire talked about the state of the culture. We commented on dancehall, reggae, and business. We talked about soundclash and life in general. We didn’t get into a lot of his background. If you want to check into his background, he’s done many interviews in the past. If you’re looking for that go check out this spot

During this conversation, we checked in and started shooting from the hip. The session was militant, and energetic, which is a good combination.

Walshy Fire Reasoning

  • How quarantine has changed life.
  • The soundtrack to the revolution.
  • Soundclash.com and the Quarantine Clash series.
  • Upcoming Major Lazer albums, artists, and mixtapes.
  • The “Customized Years” book.
  • The energy of nightlife versus day parties.
  • Influencers standing against destructive music.
  • The end of “niggering.”
  • Highlights for 2020 so far.

Ragga Soca king, Bunji Garlin is poised for his greatest worldwide success with “Differentology,” the biggest hit to emerge from 2013’s Caribbean Carnival season.

soca-gold-2013-image

Already the recipient of multiple International Soca Monarch awards in his native Trinidad, Bunji has not rested on his laurels. He maintains a steady international touring schedule and continues to push the sonic envelope with edgy soca tunes like “Differentology.”

The genre-bending song also caught the attention of Major Lazer, who immediately jumped on the remix. The song (which is featured on Major Lazer’s SoundCloud) is currently the DJ supergroup’s go-to track to open all of their live shows and has helped fuel the buzz to a crossover audience.
