Alicai Harley Lampoons Industry, Dispels Stereotypes


Welcome to #nofilter, a recurring Q&A series that gives standout artists room to breath.

Only after Alicai Harley’s plane left London did she let loved ones know she was coming home. The versatile rapper/singer hadn’t touched down on Jamaican soil in 15 years, but distance—and little advance notice—only bolstered her Kingston return. “Naah Done,” the joyous, friend-filled visual filmed during that trip, shows there’s lots to love about this 22-year-old artist: magnetic presence, island melodies, raw energy. Beats 1 premieres, Red Bull performances, and cosigns from the likes of Dizzee Rascal have followed suit.
