Flashback Friday: Mandem back on Ends

You haven't read it yet but if you like this post click here for previous Flashback Friday posts

Title is a "urban" play on 'Boys are back in Town'. Due to my disgust at the song posted below (the one about veg), I felt inspired to dedicate this weeks Flashback Friday on songs we men sung/rapped to females. You know them songs that made you feel on top of the world like


"Hold that!" x "In your face!"

Anthems which were built on testosterone, made girls shut the hell up with their naggin and/or seckled their skin after the DJ played a bunch of R&B songs for them to sing-along to bout how she's the best he's every had and doing one random promising to do all the things her man won't do, leggo dat my yooooooot!!!

Got a The Box classic, underground classic, mainstream hit & most popular counterations (the mandem been slippin on these recently though. Can't remember the last decent one)

Take this Lady P

THIS BLOGPOST HAS A CERTIFICATE OF 18+. IF YOU ARE NOT 18 AND OVER PLEASE FIND ANOTHER POST TO READ. I'M SURE YOU'LL BE ENTERTAINED BY SOMETHING ELSE.

FAO FEMALES: THIS IS ALL IN AID OF BATTLE OF THE SEXES BANTER + BALANCE THE PREVIOUS POST. THEY DO NOT NECESSARILY REFLECT MY OPINIONS ON ALL FEMALES. ONLY THE EVE'S (EVIL WOMEN INFLUENCED BY SHE WHO ATE THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT).


If you never watched this on The Box (channel 39 for my bootleg cable mandem h'inside!) you never lived



Before Indie.Arie made Video there was this (Disclaimer: I don't support the "Eat you out" bit though. Jah said no sodomy roun' ya)



When 18 year old Snoop was still Doggy Dog



The dillusional *radio edit* snitchiz



This song gave ladies over the age of 21 nightmares. Had a nice run with No Scrubs, won't lie I like that song to this day. Was very well constructed, but this dun'd your dance (please note: I never typed pidgeons into YouTube, this happened to be the best quality video). RIP the fallen soldier from Sporty Thieves



People forget DMX made classics for mandem about girls, not songs for girls mandem pressed skip.



Bonus tracks

One of my favourite X tunes, doesn't actually apply per se but its a bonus song I feel should be shared just so you can admire the Dark Man slash how to make a hood song for mandem about females



Another bonus track: Throwback Dr Dre (only chorus applies)



I promise to all the females out there I will do one for you lot to reminisce 'cause there were some serious bangers on the other side of the fence. Late 90s R&B ladies had some serious movement.

'Til next week

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 www.nolongstories.com   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
