My Rant: Drake - Best I Ever Had video

Once again I must state I don't post regular videos unless I have an opinion on it, a song I like or something that doesn't get posted everywhere (mainly Reggae/Dancehall songs I'm feelin'). This isn't some wannabe WorldStar/R&B blog where you see vids you see everywhere else.

Yeah, yeah, yeah Drake 'Best I Ever Had'

The net is on fire with this video now. So many opinions flying about, surprisingly for the man who can do no wrong and directed by an artist who fits in the "do no wrong" bracket most are negative.

Now for the opinion you've all been waiting for (said in an announcer voice) minez's! I think it's a bit somewhere else; why's Kanye bringing this University thing back? Is he upset that he wasn't the popular kid in school? Or even mad he was bullied or something? First, he dropped College Dropout, them foolish Lewis Veeton (or Louis Vuitton or whatever) backpacks, then Late Registration, even trying to bring it back through his feature on banging Keri Hilson's banger Knock You Down centres around being the neek in school. Get over it Kanye!

But anyway, drifted off topic there. Back to the video. As much (or as little) as it doesn't relate to the song, he's kind of gone from the Lil Wayne soundalike who flaps his hand like Kanye on stage to a Lil Wayne soundalike, Kanye West handflappin breast man! Hooray for Drake, I say.

Thank Jah he didn't come with some corny R&B-esque video with women wearing appropriate clothing and no body like Jeremih did for Birthday Sex. To all the people complaining about this: where were you when Jermih had the girl who would envy the curves of an ironing board in his vid? Huh?! I didn't hear you, what did you just say? That's right, you said nothing!

End of the day, none of the females will hate the song because of the vid. I understand why you hate the vid. He pulled the whole "I'm a nice gentleman, I'll bring you flowers on a rainy day....... NAGHT!" ('not' but in Borat's voice/accent). Men will watch to see bouncing things whilst not think they are listening to some damp, sweet, corny R&B dude trapped in a Rapper's body. Last thing, we are all talking about it and will tell a friend so it gets the attention it needs.


Oh yeah, for an actor his acting wasn't as good in my humble opinion.

p.s. Love you Amber Rose baby mwah. Come see me soon you hear? Can't deal with this snoggin' through the phone stuff!

I didn't actually say whether it was it was good, did I? I was left quite confused if I'm honest. Don't know if the video went past me when I was admiring the females on display but I wasn't too impressed. The little skits inbetween were kinda chuckle worthy. Thought the timing was mad off though (halfway through the second verse?!). But yeah, I didn't and still don't get it. But it's successful, so you'll get the money, hoes and clothes cos everyone is talking and the song will be a hit regardless.

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
