Kano on 'Game Over'

Spotted this over at Soul Culture. This isn't another Kano jacking and stomping all over someone else's beat like Pow! 2011. This has an interesting background:

"Having collaborated together in 2006 on Kano‘s “Hustler” remix from 140 Grime St, Swedish rapper Lazee and Kano teamed up again in Stockholm, summer 2009 to record some tracks with producer Ishi. One of these tracks was “Game Over”, a record you’ll probably recognise as Tinchy Stryder‘s latest release. Watch below as Lazee & Kano vocal the first version of the “Game Over” production in the studio before it became Tinchy’s cut."

Full track:

You hear he used the "Hood like little Red Riding" as he did on Pow! 2011?

Random Flashback: Wiley x Kano x Ghetts 'She Glows'

Received airplay on 1Xtra, not sure where it charted. Let's be honest this song is absolute garbage. Randomly crossed my mind today. 3 of grime's greatest lyricists ever put out this nonsense.

lol @ the extra's doing the electric slide throughout the vid. That's on par with directors sticking breakdance in videos. It worked for 21 Seconds but the rest of you need to cut it out.

And what the hell was the skank Ghetts doing at the end of the vid. Ghetts skankin is one of the things no one should ever see.

This period of grime was funny. Not gonna lie. I wonder if they cringe about this.

Marvin Sparks blogs for Musicology

Yeah so I've added another avenue to the resume. Check out my piece on Jah Cure's 'Like I See It' with Ricky Ross here

Other things should be poppin soonish.

Tune of the Day: Jah Cure 'Jah Jah Bless Me'

One of my favourite Jah Cure ever. So much love for this tune here. #RandomFact I never knew this was Jah Cure singing until a couple years back. Used to hear it on radio but never knew who it was. My reggae/dancehall credibility is so high that I can tell you that and feel no way.

"I know Jah Jah bless me/ No wicked heart can test me/ No matter how they try" I beg someone tell me of another genre that a song like this gets a massive response alongside what many consider as negative songs (gun and slackness)... It's alright I can wait...

Richie Spice 'Earth A Run Red' is a killer track too

Maaaan, this is that real music. Sorry, but nothing compares to reggae. NOTHING!

Geogia: We Are London

If I said I didn't kinda fancy her I'd be lying. And with that being said, I'm gonna lie... Big up your chest reppin your ends

Fan get Drake face shaved into HIS head

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
