*USA, Jamaica (MPR Consulting) – Longevity and consistency are what defines icons. Morgan Heritage are a true testament of the latter as the band celebrates over two decades in the music business in a series of many music celebrations to come. The multi-GRAMMY luminaries have delivered a musical gift with the re-release of their Family & Friends Vol.1 with an added bonus track of a live performance in Milan, Italy.

On their steadfast journey, the culturally driven family band Morgan Heritage have bridged continents and styles of Reggae with their stellar albums and productions such as the ones featured on the Family & Friends, Vol.1 compilation. Produced by Morgan Heritage, and executive produced by The Royal Family of Reggae’s patriarch, Denroy Morgan, Family & Friends are a must have compilation for the reggae connoisseur and avid music lovers worldwide. As each track is as relevant today as when first penned.

The compilation featuring legendary GRAMMY winning Toots Hibbert, GRAMMY nominated Jah Cure and Reggae superstar Capleton among others, is befitting as Morgan Heritage candidly explains that each artist featured on the album has contributed to their journey. “Although it’s been 20 years, it feels like yesterday. It started from our brother Laza (of the popular LMS group) and his band partner Shy-Poo working on a track that used a sample of the horn line in our dad’s record “No Secret”. The 3 of us had been dabbling in production as a little team sort to speak,” explains Mojo, “so I joined in and tightened it up the beat a bit. Then Gramps and Peetah heard it, and the rest was history as they say. This was around the time after we released our albums “Protect Us Jah” and “One Calling”, and we were inspired to bring back live riddims. We learned a lot at the time as we honed in on our production skills in Jamaica at renowned King Jammys and Bobby Digital studios.” recalled Mojo. “We started reaching out to friends, as we were just building and forging relationships with other artists such as Capleton who was there for us by bringing artists from his David House crew to lend their voices. Dad also got us some star power with our late great Uncle Toots (Toots Hibbert), so this was an exciting time. It was an era when you had to get creative as riddims sometimes had 15 or 20 artists on it. So to stand out, you had to write great songs with catchy melodies that fans could sing along with.

*It looks like the marriage is over between Malik Beasley and Montana Yao. 

Sources tell E! News that Yao filed for divorce shortly after the NBA star was spotted in Miami with Larsa Pippen.

We previously reported… Yao says she was “blindsided” after seeing photos online of the Minnesota Timberwolves guard holding hands with Scottie Pippen’s estranged wife.

A source close to Yao told TMZ Sports that Beasley was getting cozy with Larsa while his wife was waiting for him to return to their home in Minnesota to celebrate his 24th birthday on November 26. 

Larsa is 46 and Beasley is 24. She is still married to Scottie.

Yao shares a child with Beasley.

“Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos,” the source told E! News. “Montana never cheated, and it’s not in her character. She’s not dating anybody. She’s a family person. She’s focusing on taking care of her son with her parents. They are quarantining together. Her son is her first priority.”

A source has told Hollywood Unlocked that Beasley had been separated from Yao for months. 

The source claims Pippen was “fully aware” that Beasley was married, but separated from his wife. 

“She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn’t doing anything wrong by hanging out with him,” the source said. “Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over.”

Last month, Pippen made headlines for revealing she was dating another NBA baller, Tristan Thompson, before she introduced him to Khloé Kardashian.

Meanwhile, Beasley reportedly once fought ex-NFL player Su’a Cravens in a hotel lobby over Montana Yao.
