MiRecommend: Di Genius 'Winnings' riddim

You know I say you should never lie to artists or producers about shit songs that we have to suffer hearing? Well did I ever tell you about the riddim me and my cousins gassed one of the best dancehall producers about the day he made it?

Mutual followers may have seen this tweet:

"@DiGenius1 I saw the vlogs. Crazy vibes in Japan! Ship ah sail outernational. But yo, hope you voice that riddim. Capsize everything!!!"

To which he replied:

"@MarvinSparks mmmmmmmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!#SHIP"

Then if you don't believe it's this riddim I replied:

"@DiGenius1 "No man to mi riddim again" Yow! Big up Stephen"

Convo took place on the 28th August. Yeah I searched it. You may not think I'm gassing but that doesn't mean they don't...

Well this is it.



Can't wait for the CDQ of the riddims to drop. The instrumental for this riddim is absolutely friggin crazy on a next ting.

Swear down, if the pieces on there match up, the riddim is gone! No lie. The Chi Ching Ching piece sound maddest off that preview. Stephen sound ard too. We all agreed Aidonia will work well on it. I think Busy Signal is on there, as well as TOK, Beenie Man, Chino, Laden etc.

He created the "No man to mi riddim again" whilst just listening back. Bramma and us told him the line madddd! Been singing it for a while.

The interview will drop soon. Got to drop it when he has confirmed something for me.

UPDATE

Here's a mix by Franco from Bloodline





Not sure which ones are my fave; Chi Ching Ching mad enuh. I'm gonna upload a vid of him performing in Jamaica. Crazy forward di man get and deserved. Stephen's piece sound mad too. TOK sound neat, same for Cecile and Ele. Gonna run it some more and I'll be back

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
