Jamaica, Queens’ dancehall superstar joins Max Glazer in the studio on the premiere of the Federation Sound’s weekly show.

One of the few Jamaican-born artists currently signed to a major American label, Kranium’s story is a remarkable one that began in Montego Bay and ended in the other Jamaica… Queens. Over the course of an hour-long, wide-ranging interview with Max Glazer that touches on Kranium’s biggest hits – from his 2013 breakthrough “No One Has To Know” to his crossover smash “Can’t Believe” with Ty Dolla $ign and Wizkid – the two discuss making music for the ladies, embracing reggae and dancehall superfans around the world and how you don’t have to be based in the Caribbean to make music that swings. Plus, YouTube pundit Gibbo brings you all the news from Kingston and beyond, and our host presents a foundational reggae track you need to know, along with a deep dive into Vybz Kartel’s back catalog.
