With his new album Ancient Future, Protojé has bridged the gap between reggae and hip-hop in a way that few others have before him. Protojé is impressive as both a lyricist and vocalist on the album and cements himself as one of the most talented reggae artists to emerge from Jamaica in the past decade.
Protojé is one of the few artists willing to invest the time and money into recording a full length studio album at a time when most artists simply cut a few singles and tour them, and for this he should be commended. He is one of only a handful of artists keeping the album culture alive in Jamaica. In the same way that Dr. Dre's groundbreaking 1992 album The Chronic ushered in the G-funk era of funk-influenced hip-hop, Protojé's Ancient Future introduces a wholly new and unique brand of reggae heavily informed by elements of American hip-hop. Ancient Future is not only the best reggae album released so far this year, it is a bold statement from Jamaica's premier reggae artist in an era when ‘reggae gone foreign': "This is the new sound of reggae."
