Original Nuttah turns to Islam

Ever wondered where the Indian man who to this day made one of the biggest Jungle tunes got to? I'm talking so big it is not simply a niche genre-defining classic, but an all-round UK classic banger.

Taking it back to Telepathy days. When Nicky Blackmarket, M-Beat, MC Det, MC Shabba, Skibadee and them man were young. Tunes like Chopper, Wolf, Burial... The guy I'm talking about is



Who can say they never buss gunfinger when the bassline dropped? Back when Jungle had real bass (usually sampled ragga) before this watered down drum & bass (with minimal bass) stuff. I remember requesting this on The Box back in the days.

Anyway, I've found him



Guess he won't be doing any PAs of the tune anytime soon.

I am not Muslim, this isn't Muslim propaganda, don't want any Nick Griffin-esq comments about Sharia law or any of that. I found this Roadside to Islam channel interesting.

Jaja from PDC and Young Ummah talk religion vs. Music,



This ones deep. Dude talks about how his battles with living a grim life turned him to religion.



Whatever the religion, whatever the reason (how trivial it may seem on the outside or whatnot) if it makes them happy, I'm happy for them.

I've found him too. I think this is from last year. Let's just say I was by wasn't surprised to see he has dreadlocks!!!



If you didn't know, this was an attempt to capitalise on Shaggy's success with Oh Carolina (can you hear it sped up?). Ahh memories

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
