Vybz Kartel ft Russian - Straight Jeans and Fitted

Straight Jeans and Fitted is another so called dancehall track that has a strong hip hop over tone. The tune is one of the latest from Vybz Kartel along with producer Russian from Haed Concussion Records.With this track Kartel once again prove his natural inclination to do tunes with producers, he had done tunes with Don Corleone, Stephen McGregor, Notnice and now Russian....
Im not sure if this is going to be a hit ..as was the case with Clarks and Ramping shop which had a beat that was Hip Hop in nature -- clarks was very much a dancehall beat --- straight jeans and fitted does not fit into the dancehall genre based on the beat and delivery style ..its considered to be dancehall based only because it was done by Jamaican Producer and Artiste.

Vybz Kartel on the run?

Is kartel on the run?... well according to reports the DJ should have turned up at the Portmore Police station this monring .. he didnt. After expressing to media houses yesterday that he would have been at the station by 9am... he was a no show, and one now have to ask if he is on the run. The lawyers had indicated however that they are "working on the way top proceed."
this was a statment released by the DJ.. on the matter yesterday..

I, like millions of other Jamaicans, have certain concerns about the potential violation of my civil rights and liberties during this State of Emergency, however, I will grant the police an audience this morning as they have declared me a "major person of interest", and placed my name on a list populated with a number of alleged criminals.

This is not the first time that the police force has attempted to smear my reputation based on half-baked assumptions and ridiculous rumours, but as it happened then, I know I will be exonerated once again. I have nothing to fear. Fear makes men believe the worst, but I believe in our justice system, however flawed it may be, and in the end, I will be vindicated. I remain confident that the security forces will act with professionalism in this matter.


I have engaged legal counsel to safeguard my rights, and the truth will prevail.


I know I will be exonerated.

Kartel To Gives Self Up

Vybz Kartel
Vybz Kartel is expected to turn himself into the portmore police in less than an hour or so (click here to read more). It is still not clear as to why the DJ is being described as "a major person of interest"..and thus swelling his head .... He has been arrested before but none of the charges seem to stick. One thing for sure is that the DJ appear to be getting whiter and whiter by the minute..and we know that bleaching and skin lightening creams are illegal stuff in Jamaica..so he being wanted could be along those lines... he must have a supplier, because I dont think he has a skin disease like Micheal Jackson..and surely there is enough sun in Jamaica to prevent what is happening to the fellow..and we know this dude aint got know visa to be hiding form the sun.

Rihanna allegedly involved in Weed Smoke


Rihanna on the left


The Barbadian Rihanna, according to reports, was caught smoking the same thing that Popcaan was smoking and got busted for recently. The thing is no one saw the young lady actually puffing the stuff however a Barbadian news paper did report that the Diva and her entourage continuously set off the smoke alarm and that sweet aroma greeted security personnel each time they went to investigate, banging on the door to find out what the hell is going on in there. The Diva, as she did some time ago with her ex-boyfriend, allegedly wrecked the premises as well, the high class hotel is calculating the bill and is said to have banned her from the hotel.
I should tell you Rihanna be careful they just might ban you from Barbados and Trinidad.. you acting like a Jamaican dancehall artiste arent you?... If the story is true then ..we could say that the young lady could have the same passion as Gaza Slim ..and express how much she has an affection for that bush....that sweet bush

Let Bounty Be Free, Be Free Like Bounty....

Bounty Killer aka War Lord aka Ground God...

Its dejavu.... its true... Bounty Rodney Price Killer is now free from all charges in relation to the alleged beat up of his girlfriend Kadeen. Bounty Killa was in this position some time ago, and he did not once but twice end up in similar scenarios. The DJ appear to have a weakness in keeping his anger to himself.... taking out on the microphone is no longer the favoured thing to do...
I am willing to go on the line and say Bounty Killa will not be so amazingly stupid beyond belief to do something like this again.......perhaps I'm am amazingly stupid to say something like that...

Vybz Kartel Wanted by Police


Vybz Kartel

It has been reported that controversial DJ Vybz Kartel is a 'major person of interest' along with five other persons by the St. Catherine Police.
The DJ is no stranger to trouble as it was earlier this year several raids were made by the police at his 'big yard' and studio premises which was eventually closed.

Popcaan's Hot Skull Fry Yiy...Mix Tape


Popcaan ..Hot Skull
Fans of Popcaan can now have his collection of tunes compiled on a Mix Tape called "Hot Skull Fry yiy Boil Brainz. Well there is not much to interpret from the name even though its in broken English.. it should be clear, for those who dont know what the name of the Mix Tape is saying it can be expressed as "Hot Skull, Fried Eyes, Boiled Brains". If this is not bordering on cannibalism I dont what else is..
The young DJ/SIngJ is trying to break in the market with his style of talk ... he has already made the phrase "dawdy" and "pawdy" once again catchy phrases.
The Mix Tape is a chunk full of Popcaan latest tracks... well he doesn't have too much previous recordings because he came in the business just over 24 months ago or so. The tracks are free for the taking, the mix was done by Chromatic Sound and contain some 30 tunes including the mega hit tune Clarks - Ft Vybz Kartel and Gaza Slim, other tracks includes "Sell we Out" (the blak ryno diss) and track called "New Year"

Chris Brown for Reggae Sumfest 2010 But..

Reggae Sumfest Flyer
 Reggae Sumfest is on its way scheduled for July 17-24, 2010..and this years lineup includes the likes of Usher and Chris Brown as the big international artists component. It is also expected that the regular line up for the dancehall segment would be filled up with Jamaica's top dancehall acts. This includes the likes of Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Mavado, Busy Signal, Chino etc..
Chris Brown
There is a bit of noise about Chris Browns' inclusion in the International Night Lineup. Because Chris had beaten the hell out of Rhianna sometime ago... there are various groups that are not fond of him being employed at this time.
I know Chris did his time, he payed for his crime so why they continue to punish the fellow? Here is another excuse not to punish Chris, Bounty Killa has not only beaten one woman he has beaten several including a pregnant woman in advance state of pregnancy. Do I see hypocrisy staring me in the face here?.. there is actually a campign to give Chis hell.. saying that they will never forgive him and his life should be forever destroyed. .. well Bounty is a lucky MotherFuc@%r...aint he.. even betweenie ..he just beat up LA Lewis.. and not to mention Kartel and him beating stick them... and my God..no one has gone out of their way to make sure that these guys dont think about smacking anyone else... cause im sure if they continue pauperise Chris Brown.. than chances are he might end up a bum smacking bitches all over the place..
Well perhaps not ...but get Off man!!

Coke Delivered

Christopher 'Dudus' Coke left the island today on his way to the United States to answer breaches in firearm and drug laws in that country. The promoter, businessman and so-called modern day Robin Hood was escorted to the airport from Up Park Camp in a JDF helicopter where a plane was waiting for him, he departed to the United States at approximately 2:05 pm.
Now Who's next?... What of all them cancelled visas?.. Bounty Killer and the other artists should see some glimmer of hope ..since it was always thought that the artists lost their visas due to their association with Coke.

The Love for Nicky Minaj in Jamaican Dancehall music is rising

Nicky Manaj.. is one of the most well known "sadomite"...(which is the colloquial expression used to describe lesbians ..See video at 0:21 and the males are usually referred to as Battyman ..see video at @ 0:16)... in the music business. She is very much open about her lifestyle that some critics describe as fake. Recently she appear to have been working with a number of Jamaican affiliated musicians, and as you may know Jamaican artistes are described as some of the most homophobic in the galaxy. I am not surprised or even phased by the fact these entertainers are working with Nicky Minaj, because with visa being cancelled all over the place and the recent social unrest Jamaican artistes are not hesitating to latch onto any opportunity.
The Jamaican affiliated entertainers that has made some effort to have working relation with Nicki Minaj which includes Merciless, he did a remix of nicki's track Your Love. There are also official and unofficial collaborations with the likes of Gyptian and Sean Kingston. The interactions with Nicky and Nicky related material have caused these entertainers to be on the receiving end of some flack from hard core fans..but not enough to grab any attention... perhaps the wild west Kingston tragedy have had most people distracted. The Gyptian track 'Hold Yuh' that Nicky Manaj endorsed ...is said to be doing even better now that she had done so. Sean Kingston collaboration "Dutty Love" with the self professed sadomite hip hop star is manifesting in the form a video shoot at the moment. The scheduled video shoot is said to be in Ocho Rios Jamaica over the weekend. It was in a recent report that Sean Kingston had expressed his affection for Nicky...and perhaps would make her his wife.... ANYWAY... the video is right on the heels of the drake video and Sean has indicated his intentions to outdo Drake's "Find Your Love" video which was shot in Port Royal Jamaica.

La Lewis-Rush Mi {Beenie Man Diss} From Oneil Funeral Dispute With Beenie Truck

LA Lewis is taking advantage of the mishap that took place recently at O'Neil's funeral between himself and Beenie Man. The song called 'Rush Mi' recently done by Lewis the graffiti artiste now turned recording artiste, disses Beenie Man and tells all about the alleged assault that took place. The track is a take off Drakes tune Find Your LOve ..

Bling Dawg expecting a baby with wedding bells...finally

Bling Dawg and girlfriend


The fact that Bling Dawg is expecting a baby with his girlfriend for many years is nothing normal at all. For some time the DJ has been on undue pressure to make effort and "breed something"... there are now reports that he did. The entertainment industry should be happy for Bling Dawg.. at least the alliance/gully enclave. This is due to the fact that Bling was the one of many target points for vybz kartel at the peak of the confrontation between his Portmore Empire camp and the mavado/bounty killer lead group Gully/Alliance. ... here @2:07 in the track Say what yuh feel fi say...
The Bling was also blasted in the tune When Since @ 1:00.. and I quote "battyboi bling still cant get a pickney..chue him blood claat tongue too frisky"...
Bling Girl
Bling Dawg did manage to retaliate with a number of counteractions... one called the answer.. and another called the answer to the answer that appear not to get off the ground not that he was hoping that it would. There was no apparent effect on Blings career though and the DJ wasn't really phased by the insult from Kartel... however he did make the effort to remove what appeared to be a stigma to some in the business...
Now the issue relating to Jacket!!?...ahhh forget it...
Kartel and all them need to leave the guy alone... dont bother with no Jacket business... but it would be devastating if it turned out to be Chino's youth... he is known to put woman pon him head...LOL

Terry Linen in Trouble


Terry Linen and his brother are said to be in police custody.. after some alleged altercations that implied the the two were wrong in the actions they took against their fellow man.
This is a bit surprising as Terry Linen is not even remembered since the year started and then all of sudden his in the light with bad news. We are not  too certain of the story behind the incident that lead to the 'Linnen Brothers' bringing a weapon into play.... the action was deemed contrary to local laws and customs of the parish St Elizabeth where the incident took place.

Ding Dong rejected by Trinidad ...promoters fuming

Ding Dong

I was about to say of all the people they gonna ban from Trinidad ..they went on and ban Ding Dong... how much different is Ding from Chris Gayle and Jerome Taylor?...big difference I say Ding makes you cheerful and Gayle and the other Jamaicans on the worst indies team (aka west indies cricket team)certainly has not bring a smile to faces for more than ten years or so.
The funny thing about all of this is that Ricky Trooper who was banned by the united states is at it again this time in the schengen states. He is perhaps banned in Trinidad as well... it would seem that the Trinis feel threatened by 'Jamaicans of bad influence'...ok then fair enough its your country you can do as wish. Its a matter of time that they will be banning Bob Marley related material and even Mr. Goddy Goddy.. cause once you are a Jamaican there is a chance that some bad influence might be in you.

Gyptian in Bike Accident


Gyptian
Gyptian Crashed yesterday off his motor bike. It was just recently top dancehall artiste Movado met the same fate off his bike (thats how 9 lives was born) round about the time he was stripped of his "visa rights". Gyptian is said to be "ok" however he had undergone an MRI....to determine the extent of the brain/head damage if any.
Gyptian has been flying high with his single Hold Yuh... but this should be an indication---- no-- a clear and forthright instruction to dispose of that weapon of artiste destruction -the bikes.
Gyp in the vicinity of a bike
We know that it is addictive ....its like what Kartel does to his skin-- what Bounty do to his ladies ---what Jabba dem did to Bobby Chin....

Beenie Man and LA Lewis in a Tussle

Beenie Man (left in white) and LALewis (right) in a disgraceful tossle
There have been reports that Beenie Man and LA Lewis were in a tussle at O'Neil Edwards funeral over the weekend. Details are sketchy but it appears that the incident was a result of LA Lewis scratching Beenie's car with his. This caused the self proclaimed king of dancehall to discipline the the graffiti god.
Of all the places to grab an attention, they chose the funeral of the former Voicmail member. If this is not distasteful we dont know what is--- i refuse to call it a publicity stunt.. there has to be some element of genuine mistake here.. or is that LA Lewis dont have insurance?
The family and friends of O'Neil will now see that the problems are deep in this island where ignorance is concerned.

SHAWN STORM - MY LIFE ..we want more

This one by Sean Storm is like none that he has done before. It has a nice melody (thanks Mavado*) and definitely can be described as the artiste first hit... Its not a in My Cupp... but has a ear catcher to it... Its interesting how these so called no talent personnel in the Gaza camp can stay in the lime light more than most expected..
Its a pity Shawn will not be able to replicate the hits as fast as we wish.. We expect a hit from him every 100 to 150 tracks.. but at some point maturity should kick in...
There are few more artiste that dont sound too bad... there is Mertial's Pray on the same Gangsters City Riddim, Kartels Thank you Jah and Popcaan's  Gangsta's City... its a notnice production.. Im wondering if this was produced before or after the Havendale studio was closed

*Yes!! The Mavado renaissance has bring back melody to dancehall music...at least cause more to pay attention to it
