When Wrestling was the Sh*t! pt. 1

I think I may make a habit of these throwback threads. Everyone loves to reminisce. We'll see. For now, we'll call it 'Throwback Thursdays'

To today's topic; Wrestling; WWF to be precise (today). Yes, oiled up men in tights who weren't really fighting (it's closer to synchronised dancing than fighting). Any 80s baby-90s kid who claims they never liked it never had a childhood. Let's face it, you must have been washing dishes by 8 years-old, ironing the households clothes by 10 years-old and in your bed by 9pm on weekends until 17. Sorry your childhood was so shit. I'll try to dedicate one to you early birds in the next few weeks (I have one in mind).

This post is for all the real mandem and gyaldem/ all-a my famdem who used to watch Raw is War on a Friday night, maybe caught that par of a show Superstars on Saturday (Gorrila Monsoon was the commentator on that, no?) and Heat on a Sunday (if my dad ever took me to that I would suplexed him. Some diet version). These days were before Smackdown cos The Rock was on top, but they didn't have it init(!) and before the F was switched with an E.

Alright so enough long talking, YouTube time. Today I/we appreciate 3 top theme tunes. Squeeze it now my selectorrrr-torr-torr-tor (echo effect innit!)

If this tune didn't scare you, you were either too old or a heartless bastad! Lol @ not trying the eye roll thing then being told by an elder "If the wind changes direction it will stay like that". 'Ang tight man like Paul Bearer, man was like the walking dead for real.

The glass break was got me hyped from the beginning. When it was a surprise appearance like, if, say Vince McMahon was chattin none sense *glass breaks* = me up out of my seat making noise

Last but not least another one where you got hyped from the needle drops. Lol @ not trying to spit bars to this in 9T9

So, Jamaican Music Is Currently Dominating UK Pop Chart

Based on official UK top 100 singles chart week commencing 15th April 1. Drake featuring Wizkid & Kyla Don't listen to the afrobeats or UK funky claims, Drake made a dancehall song with elements of the aforementioned. But I addressed that in the ' Mis-Appreciation of Jamaican Culture ' post. 2. Sia feat. Sean Paul - Cheap Thrills Sidenote: Song declined by Rihanna 5. Zara Larrson - Lush Life Sidenote: Allegedly a song declined by Rihanna. Not sure how true that is. 10. Rihanna feating Drake - Work (peak chart position 2) 13. Major Lazer feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG- Light It Up (peak chart position 7) Sidenote: Nyla is part of Brick & Lace fame. They dropped one of the best written dancehall pop crossover songs ever in Love is Wicked . I believe she's the singer although she singjay's on this. 26. Justin Bieber - Sorry (peak chart position 1) 39. AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan - I'm In Control 43. Kygo - Stay (peak chart

About Chronixx Somerset House show: this is NOT a review

So basically, I went to Chronixx's show at the prestigious Somerset House on Sunday. Had the time of my life again. Decided I'm not gonna write a review on Monday because what else is there to say? I've seen him five times (six if you include the time babylon locked off proceedings cos of curfew in Jamaica. Seven if you include his appearance at Rebel Salute) and been impressed every time. How do I keep retelling the same story? "You have to see this guy. It is one of the best shows you will experience in these times," will forever be the moral. If you wanna read a review of this show  go here . You can take in my reviews of Chronixx in 2014 and 2013 . If you wanna do that and wanna hear what I've got to say, stay here.

Remember When Riddims Were King

Before you read, thank you for your interest and hope you enjoy. I actually fleshed it out into a book. You can get your copy from   Now for what you came here for... When Riddims Were King 23rd May 2020 will be remembered in history for one of the most epic events in one of our universe's darkest times. We will never forget the night dancehall kings and former extremely heated rivals, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer, battled on the Verzuz platform built by hall-of-fame producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. An unfiltered, 360-degree view on Jamaican dancehall events was showcased; DJ’s and dancing (Beenie Man’s daughter Desha Ravers) to deejay’s clashing on the same riddims. The latter elements provided the jewels in the night’s highlight reel, and undoubtedly the best thing to happen on the Verzuz series. Word spread like guava jelly within the dancehall community and Jamaican diaspora upon announcement. Not only was it a clash between the longest and fier
