P Money 'Ho riddim' "What's that smell face" Alert!

I wasn't around to hear this tune before, so may be a touch late. Had to post
it though.

See what I mean about "What's that smell face"? Tell me your face isn't scrunched up like someone dropped a silent x violent one. Swerve and P Money smelt it, so evidently they dealt it (that was clever wasn't it? I smiled to myself in appreciation).

Shouts to DJ Swerve on the production. D Double E's Street Fighter knocked, so does this! I remember seeing the radio DJ on Kiss tweeting Dready about producing. Good to see what it has produced (made it sound like I was part of the process innit? SICK!). I guess this is where the line between grime and dubstep is blurred. Not saying Swerve reps either scene, but based on sound it's hard to define. Either way that bassline is durrrty

P's too sick. Like beyond gone. He has everything; hype bars, sing along's, deep bars, war bars, clever and witty punchlines, sits on every beat, and (he has what a lot of skippy grime MCs lack) clarity. Ultimately, he has retained the ability to write performance bars. With the live element of grime going down the pan since the first generation of grime, many have concentrated on being good for your own personal listening, in my opinion, and gone a bit too complex and lost it on delivery and clarity.

Tempa T, P Money and Blacks are three artists that I see (on YouTube) and feel are the best live MCs, but P has more in the locker than them for me. Take the song above; the chorus is straight hype, you can see that setting a rave alight reminiscent of the old day one-line flow, then the verses full of punchlines and quotables that the new-age laptop grime fans appreciate.

If I controlled the cheque book of an independent label, trust me, I'm signing P. Likewise, a booking agency.

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
