Friday Forts

Yeah I said it, "forts"

Random Tune of the Day: Scatman John 'Scatman'

No need to Real Badman Never Afraid this as I'm sure we can all agree we liked this song. It wasn't cheesy. Let's all sing along "Bee bup bup bulobo... I'm a scatman! Shibidibby dee bu bullu bo, bu bullo bo"

RD 'Do It Like Me'

Still feeling this tune on some ridiculous levels. If I was a teenager, I'd be crushing on Martika and Troy boy. Tell ya. They're old enough, but I don't be crushing on younger girls like that. Crushing is a likkle man ting. If you're reading, holla at man innit

New video: Diddy Dirty Money featuring Skepta 'Hello Good Morning Remix'

Shot before the landmark performance on MTV in Glasgow. Name of show eludes me at this current moment in time. Anyway, here is the video. Don't cuss it for not being really glitz and glamour, it was a spur of the moment thing. Immense look. Hope it does big things for him because his last song, Cross My Heart (#31 in UK Singles), failed to improve on the previous two (Bad Boy #26 and Rescue Me #14 in UK singles chart) even though he's bigger and had this collab.

FAO T-Pain: Damn homie, in 08 you was the man homie

Today I asked on Twitter

"Did Jay-Z's DOA kill T-Pain? What the hell happened to him?"

"My last tweet wasnt clear. I meant what happened to TPain as a credible artist. Went from hit-maker feat'ing on every song to what he is now"

One of the responses I got:

@kokomagazine Koko Magazine
"@MarvinSparks he made this :-/!"

Which leads you to...

Argh man, what the hell happened there.

The conclusion I came to:

@MarvinSparks: Just thinking, if you lock off Twitter and urban blogs/Worldstar, nuff artists become myths

Throwback Tune of the Day: Cam'Ron 'Hey Ma'

This tune crossed my mid yesterday. I felt G-Unit and D-Block over Dipset but Heatmakers were absolutely sick! This wasn't produced by them but so what?

We all know the tune, just click play and enjoy some real good music

I felt the Hey Ma remix off Diplomatic Immunity too. Toya (swear she's Cam's babymother or was his girl or some isht) went in with the arrangement. Her lazy delivery caught me, her notes weren't the greatest but I don't care.

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
