The “Round Corna” deejay teamed up with Good Good Production on the new project which saw guest appearances from several artists from his Gaza crew including Blak Ryno, Tommy Lee Sparta, Lisa Hyper, Shawn Storm, Sheba, Merital Family, and Jah Vinci.
There are already rumors that there could be a Portmore Empire reunion. But sources close to the Gaza deejay told Urban Islandz that Vybz Kartel being incarcerated put a damper on any talks of a reunion.
Producer Zum of Good Good says he chooses to do the project to remind fans of the invaluable contribution from the Gaza crew to Jamaican music. “I wanted something different because everybody been going in the same direction,” Zum said. “It’s been awhile since people heard the Gaza family, so mi decide to mek dem reunite and done.”
Zum also revealed that Popcaan declined his offer to be featured on the project and Portmore Empire founding member Deva Bratt couldn’t be reached. “I never got through to Deva Bratt, and Popcaan was being difficult, so I will leave it as that,” he said. “I know this will be special because from mi post it online, the feedback has been very good, and mi not even drop the rhythm yet.”
