DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Mavado
  • Track: Rise Up
  • Feat. Akon, Rick Ross
  • Producer: Jerry Wonder
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

On May 1, International Worker's Day, labor supporters worldwide hit the streets to demonstrate in support of worker's rights. (In the U.S., it's known by the less politically-charged moniker, “May Day”) If you need help getting into the holiday spirit, look no further than Mavado's latest promo single, on which the Kingstonian singer calls on the dispossessed masses to Rise Up against the powers that be. Assisting on the guest tip, Rick Ross jumps on Jerry Wonder's street-ready dancehall boardwork to spit passionately about the struggles of Rick Ross (What, did you really expect Mr. Rozay to start busting out Che Guevara quotes?), and Akon ties the package together with an anthemic chorus. This cut isn't part of a larger project, but fans can, of course, keep their browsers locked for the latest from all involved.
