Reviewing “Reggiestration” Album

  This is an article from GhanaMusic.com that talks about the album “Reggiestration” from the African hip hop artist Reggie Rockstone.  Rockstone was born in Ghana but spent his early childhood in the United States.  He returned to Ghana in the 1990’s and has been continuously living there developing the music style hiplife which infuses the African genre highlife with hip hop music.  The album “Reggiestration” is a double album that includes remixes of some of Reggie Rockstone’s older songs as well as brand new tracks.  There are many big artists featured on this album like 2face, Wyclef, Sena, D Black, and Trigmatic.  The second track on the album is titled “Ah Jay” and has the essence of the African Highlife style, the chorus of the song is done in Twi.  Songs from the album “Reggiestration” tell the history and roots of Africa as well as celebrate the high points of African culture and life.  The album cover has a cocoa pod, which Rockstone said represents the harvest of all the hard work he has been doing.
