Am I Gonna Vote Doe?

Inspired by this Cut The Chat spesh, presented by Christiana (check out her blog. I call her Hammer 'cos she's always on point) and the dude from Adulthood that had the constant screw face. My friend said he looked like he was holding a wasp prisoner in his mouth. Not me, I said my friend. Anyway, his name is Femi O supm supm another (Onyiran? Oyinran?). And yeah they take to the streets to ask people their reasons for and against voting.



Anyway, 6th May = Election where we vote for the po-lie-trick-cian dem a.k.a. politician. I always vote so don't holla at me, but I question why I vote. People say "If you don't vote, you can't complain" or "This is your chance to make a difference" but is that h'acktually true?

I can kinda understand the latter, but not the former. I can't complain either way! Well I can, but it won't change anything. To me the former is similar to the old "If you haven't got anything to hide, why complain?" in support of holding people's DNA on database, CCTV camera, and all the other "big brother/nanny state" stuff.

Let's be honest, our votes merely select who we want to take the piss with our lives and place the blame on for why the country is a mess.

Without revealing who I'm voting for, it's purely lesser of evils, but does that h'acktually achieve anything in terms of helping the situation?

Anyways, forget the above statement, I'm saying good luck Green Party! When you get into power, mek sure you legalise di 'erb (marijuana/sensi/plant found on King Solomon's grave...). #RandomInfo I actually know someone who used both his and, well, stole his brothers card to vote for the Green Party for that very reason. Big 25 year old man at the time too. Oh how we laughed.

We all know who's gonna win. Them opinion poll people never asked me, nor my mandem or sistrin dem who we are voting for, so who did they ask? That's what I wanna know! All of a sudden, people who decided to vote off those with talent on X-Factor and Britain's Got Talent are now asked to put on an intellectual head to vote for who they want to run the country. Once a sheep, always a sheep. Majority of mainstream media are going down one road, the sheep are bound to follow.

Sidebar: In Jamaica they say the only time you see politicians is election time. Swear I never see nor hear from mine until them times too lol.

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
