Nicki Minaj joins Kanye to perform Monster jacked from Soul Culture

Well apart from fancying every inch of Nicki Minaj from the top of her head to her ankles (never seen her feet, but not a big fan of feet. Call me immature, I'll just sulk. Big deal), her shape is out of the galaxy. I don't care if it's fake, it looks real and there aren't any receipts so until then it's down to genetics.

Hip hop fans that criticise dancehall for being slack are hypocrites. I bet you see nothing wrong with his sexually explicit content on this song. But something I've always wondered is how does it feel to sing "N**ga" looking in the face of a bunch of white people? I cringe whenever I play a white person a hip hop song with that word. I know this is an age old discussion... but this is my blog, nah? Awoe!

Random Tune of the Day: Alanis Morrisette 'One Hand In My Pocket'

This tune goes hard. This and 'Ironic' (which will probably be another Random Tune of the Day) were the ones.

Students riot to Serani 'No Games'

Student protests in London: A street-level view of the day

Fires, fights and parties break out as a new generation of young protesters take their anger over education cuts to the streets of Whitehall. WARNING: This video contains strong language

I enjoyed that coverage. Shout out whoever made that. Love that they play Serani 'No Games'. That's so big! Wasn't even a major commercial success over here if we are to judge a hit by songs.

Throwback Tune of the Day: Jadakiss 'Put Your Hands Up'

One of my all-time favourite Jadakiss songs ever! Went in doesn't even sum it up. The flows, bars, punches, metaphors, wordplay... all present on a high level.

"And I'mma get Bucks like Milwaukee cos like Sam I Cassell (can sell)" went over my head for years. Thought he said "Like Sam I can sell" therefore assuming it was a reference to someone I don't know until I found out there was a basketball player called Sam Cassell that played for Milwaukee Bucks. Most of these rappers couldn't dream of writing something on that level. A punchline and metaphor with sick wordplay all in one.

Randomly remembered the Beanie Sigel to Jada diss record on this beat

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh man, hip hop was the shit back then.

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
