Drake + lawsuit blah blah

I was supposed to do more of these posts. Guess I kinda forgot. Forgive moi. Check an earlier post I did here.

So Drake is getting sued for Best I Ever Had AGAIN!!! This song is proving way too much controversy. First the Breast I Ever Had video which mandem loved, females loathed (jealous ones will always envy (joking ladies, Iiiiiiiiii-e-iiiii will always love... your sexy friend), then the other rapper/producer, Kia Shine, that said Drake stole the melody from a demo he gave to Lil Wayne, (or could be the other way around), now this.





Sound alike? Most definitely. Quite blatantly chopped and looped the sample. You could hear it was a sample from day. But I don't care, Boi1da is a sick guy for that! Samples are sometimes classed as lazy. Remember when people cussed Kanye for the sped-up soul samples? I don't agree with that. To hear a song, especially a song I've never heard before, think "if I take that bit, loop it twice, take that bit, place it there, I can make a hit" or classic in this instance, I give utmost ratings for creativity. I can't even (mess about) freestyle over a track I know the lyrics too without copying the original artist's flow, so I guess I'm not one to talk.

Speaking of Kanye, the above example reminded me of one of my favourite Kanye beats. How did he get this:

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
