Jonkanoo Jerk House is now serving Hot Jerk Buns – yes, your favourite jerk BBQ burger style!
There’s three burgers to choose from each featuring Jonkanoo specialties that have had a 48 hour jerk-spice marinading, some serious charcoal smoking and a good flame grilling. And each bun is yours, served with shoestring fries for $15.
Shabba ~ Extra smokey, flame grilled jerk chicken breast, lettuce, chilli-lime mayo
Tubby ~ Tender jerk pork neck, ancho slaw on our soft grilled bun
Sani Showbizz ~ Angry jerk tofu, lettuce and mayo
Each of the jerk buns are named after some of our favourite Jamaican musicians: original dancehall badman Shabba Ranks, dub innovator King Tubby and the hilarious ‘artist manager’ comedian Sani Showbizz.

With Yeezy in town and plenty of Rocs ready to be thrown in the sky, we’re hosting Diamonds Are Forever – a one-off night of Roc-A-Fella classics! To get you ready to revisit Jay-Z, Dame & Biggs’ finest, Levins and Franco have put together their top Roc-A-Fella jams!
Jay Z – In My Lifetime
It’s 2014 and Jay Z is one of the biggest superstars in the world. This was released in 1995 and as the story goes Jay & Dame delivered the promo vinyl with a bottle of champagne to all the biggest radio DJ’s round the US. Listen to the lyrics, he was so ahead of his time it’s as if he saw the future before it happened.
Dame Dash, Cam’Ron & Jim Jones – I Am Dame Dash
Taken from the Paid In Full soundtrack, this rarer Roc jam has the makings of everything great about that era; Just Blaze production, Dipset at their peak and Dame Dash doing what he does best – talk shit.
Freeway – Alright feat. Allen Anthony
You know those songs you can NEVER get sick of? This is one of those songs. Originally an Allen Anthony solo track (on the Paid In Full soundtrack), but made 200% better with the addition of Freeway’s raspy rapid raps. I will love this track forever.
Beanie Sigel – Feel It In The Air
Not one for the clubs, but listening to this song makes me so emotional. IMO Beans never really got his just due, he killed these reflective tracks, R&B features, club bangers. Dude could have been massive if he stayed out of jail long enough…
Memphis Bleek – R.O.C
Ok, so Bleek isn’t one hit away. But you can’t deny he had hits! This is up there with Roc The Mic, Flipside and a gang of other Just Blaze produced Roc club bangers that I absolutely love to play out. And Bleek could spit something serious, unfortunately for his solo career being Jay’s right hand guy his whole career was more a curse than a blessing.
5. Young Chris – 94 Bars
Roc-A-Fella is so unmistakedly New York, but most of my favourite Roc rappers were from Philadelphia. Young Chris was great in Young Gunz but this song (and ‘Line ‘Em Up’) were so much better than anything the Gunz did. There are a lot of tragic “why didn’t they blow up!” stories about Roc rappers, but Young Chris sits at the top of the tragic pile. He should’ve been huge. Bring back State Property!
4. Cam’ron featuring Juelz Santana – Oh Boy
I bought Cam’s album Come Home With Me because I loved ‘Hey Ma’ so much. Imagine my levels of pure stokedness when I heard this on my first listen through of the album. It hurts my life that while this track spent 5 weeks at number one in the States, Holly Valance’s ‘Kiss Kiss’ was number one in Australia.
3. Juelz Santana & Cam’ron – Dipset Anthem
Juelz and Cam were the best duo. Imagine what a better place the world be if Watch the Throne was actually a whole album of Juelz and Cam rapping about planking on things. This track only features the two of them but it’s probably the best intro to Dipset you can get. It sounds especially good when mixed into ‘Crunk Muzik’.
2. Freeway – All My Life (featuring Nate Dogg)
This is one of those tracks that I know all the words of but when I play it out nobody knows any of the words and that makes me sad in a really smug way. Nate Dogg’s chorus on this should be considered as one of his best, as well as one of the toughest R&B hooks on a rap track. This whole Freeway album (Philadelphia Freeway) is all hits and I wish he was still making records just like it.
1. Jay-Z featuring Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek & Freeway – 1-900-Hustler
This is the Roc-A-Fella take on a classic Rap-A-Lot track 1-900-Dial-A-Crook (which is probably my fav track from that label too). The best is so triumphant and everybody goes super hard and you’re like damn how could a track be any harder than this and then Freeway comes on and punches everybody in the world in the face with his verse. A few years ago me and Joyride played this on Christmas Eve at the Greenwood (why were we even booked) and someone cried. Best track ever.
Diamonds Are Forever is happening this Friday night from 11pm til late. Just $10 on the door. Full info here!
