You know how when you blaze a spliff in the morning and you hold “a vibe,” but then later on, you forget what you did the whole rest of the day? Protoje’s new album is kinda like that. It’s titled In Search of Lost Time and rolling out via his Indigg Collective partnership with RCA. That’s a big deal. When was the last time a Jamaican artist set up their own international joint venture? Take a minute, think about it, and let us know if you can think of anybody else ever.
Protoje’s always been about his business. Back in 2016, he told Boomshots, “If you can’t own your masters, lef’ the slaveship.” So he stuck with that vision and leveraged an agreement for himself and Indigg artists Lila Ike and Sevana. Respect is due for making moves to ensure that reggae music is treated with respect. Fresh off his collaboration with the Unruly Boss “Like Royalty,” Protoje is back with another high-profile combination. For the latest joint off In Search of Lost Time, Diggy links with Wiz Khalifa for a smoked-out session that could only be called “A Vibe.”
