Lady-P - Are You Gonna Yam?

Yes, we all knew it was coming and here it is... the female answer version to Funky Dee's grunky (grime x funky) one-hit wonder - sorry anthem Are You Gonna Bang? These always pop up, surprised there wasn't a popular Single Ladies remix. Usually done by people you never hear of again. Sporty Thieves had a banger but where are they now? (Who wants to bet that makes a return to clubland?) Eamon and his "chick" Frankie? Most probably won't hear either of these 2 again but hey... here's the song

They say you shouldn't answer a question with a question but I am geuinely confused of how to answer her question. Therefore I have a question for you Lady P: what are you actually asking?

Yam = vegetable better known in Jamaican circles as hard food. Usually served with the national dish ackee and saltfish, yam is bwoil' dung (boiled) with green banana, Irish (potato) and plantain (pronounced plarn-tin like PLANT x mounTAIN).

When cooking has finished you proceed to NYAM!

Nyam recently performed at the local karaoke and I think his song choice was bang on point. He flicked through the song book and one song jumped out at him, #34:

I think the answer to his question Lady P is:

+'d N at the end but -'d the Y = nam. Don't worry too much because I know people are going to be using this song as defence asking "Am I gonna hard food?", you've got a song which will knock in clubs (you know funky ravers are sheep) so don't worry too much. Next time check weh you ah deal wid uzeet, uzeet, uzeet? Some may say I'm looking to deep, I say "So what if I'm right?"

The video is good though!

On a related note, this vid is jokes, tune's alright still but should have been on a different beat due to Are U Gonna Bang now this chicks version

Poppin Lucozade you know. Also LOL @ the guy in the yellow. The captured a typical funky session though, loads of males skankin by themselves with no girls in sight.

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
