FINALLY a Shyne Po song feat Akon & Mavado

I heard about this song about 2/3 months ago. Been waiting impatiently ever since

"And wullaloadash*t (what a load of sh*t)" as Nan in Catherine Tate would say. How you gonna re-lick the Bug riddim, but make it sound 100000000000000000 times worse? Mavado, you a mi doops, but wha gwaan? A doh know rasta, someone must be telling him to change his style on Yankee records - it's never the same Mavado. People are united in their dislike for Akon; I don't mind him personally and I think he does well* on this track (*well or better?). When I interviewed him (notice the way I threw that in?) he was a cool guy.

On to the main attraction Shyne... *exhales* I'm hoping its too early to say it but... actually I won't. He needs to back some Lemsip, 'cos that voice isn't doing it at all. How can you lose weight whilst sounding even more overweight than previously (remember comparisons to BIG?)? Hopefully it was mixed in a way that was less than flattering for his trademark Mobb boss-ish baritone.

I'm hoping this is a cruel joke played by internet prankers "4 da lulz"

This is one of my favourite riddims of all time, Dave Kelly was at his peak (in my opinion). In light of the above SH*T, let's take it back to the original.

My favourite of the many pieces on the riddim were the blatant obvious.

Still my favourite Bounty Killer EVER! Back in the days when he was the poor people's Governor. Killer needs to bun out the Grung Gad, take it back to poor people Governor and link with Dave Kelly again

Stablemate Baby Cham (before he dropped the Baby) chipped in with this

Then they linked on the same tune, with Dave Kelly remixing his riddim


Wayne Wonder had a decent piece on there. I think he had two in fact, with one featuring Surprise (Wayne Wonder deejayin). I think Frankie Sly had an alright one too. Working off memory here, so excuse any inaccuracies

Tidbit: Rapper (Miami maybe?) JT Money's people were going to take Dave Kelly to court for sampling his hit song "Who Dat". Wonder if that will rear its head again this time around

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
