Well it's Wednesday

If you like I love dancehall/bashment check out Heatwave's latest Rinse FM show here.

If you wanna hear a mix I did, yes, I an' I click here. Every big riddim from 2010, riddim's UK selectors don't play like Gangsta City, songs from popular riddims they don't play (cos it isn't sexually explicit or about guns) and songs that will buss the dance in the future.

N-Dubz debut USA single sounds, rather...

hmm... But I triple double dare you to leave me in a room with Ny and Tulisa.



Men Lie, Women Lie... But the facts don't

MEN LIE,WOMEN LIE.....BUT THE FACTS DONT! is a short film written and directed by UK rapper/actor Fredi KRUGA Nwaka and Ben MESTOR Dansac. It is based on a TRUE STORY and follows a day in the life of Ryan 'SHANKZ' Clinton and the events which led to a gruesome discovery late one summer evening. To some a telephone call is a source of information or just conversation....to others, it is a catalyst for an EXPLOSION!

ATTACHED CAST: Fredi 'KRUGA' Nwaka (Dead Man Running, Victim, Lethal), Tanya Vital (Emmerdale,Holby), Phoenix James ( Romeo is Dying, Dora) , Gennese Williams (Storm Damage,Extreme Makeover)

Features music from Gappy Ranks, The Real Mr Smith, SKillz Beatz, Kruga, D Goode. RATED 15. ONLINE RELEASE DATE: 15:11:10


This looks interesting. Yes another street tale, but based on a true story gives an interesting spin to me.



10 year-old pickney have pickney?

A 10-year-old girl from Romania has given birth in southern Spain, officials in the region have said.

Spotted this story.

Initially I thought, "That's some unfortunate freak accident. Didn't know they had the tools to fall pregnant at that age." Then it hit me, you have to do the do to get kids. What the hell happened here? How is a 13 year-old breeding a 10 year old? Disgusting. I wonder if this happened in south London whether someone would link it to hip hop music videos and lyrics such as Tip Drill and P-Poppin like this punk linked slang to gang crime. I don't even understand how black community = gang stuff.

Deeper feat. Enjay 'Stuntin on the Corner'

This beat is weighty. Sounds Yank but still it goes 'ard. Yout's rap well too.



Wiley, Giggs and Juelz Santana 'Bright Lights'

Yeah, Juelz Sanatana! No, this isn't a verse from him in 2003. And yeah, this song isn't actually that good. I'm posting it because it may be of some interest to you guys



Cherri V, my favourite girl?

Jacked from MistaHooli Erm, looks-wise most definitely. Still waiting for her to make a song I actually like though. If you are reading this and you know her personally, I beg you tell her to make something r&b lovers will appreciate. This pop-drivel can come once she's established a proper fan base but I'm struggling with this I'm afraid. I liked her stuff at the album listening last year, can we get some of that please? Thanks.

Swear he leaked most of those songs for GOOD Fridays? Come like a dancehall album with the compilations. At least dancehall is a singles-driven market to use as an excuse.

Speaking of Max she will be judging tonight at Miss Flavour. Scorcher will also be in the house.



MC Hammer better run, run

Oh sorry, the song title is 'Better Run, Run'. Anyone reading the title could have thought I meant he better run. And for those of you who did think that, you're right (double entendre business).

In response to Jay's verse on GOOD Friday's track So Appalled in which Hov' says: "Hammer went broke so you know I'm more focused. I lost 30 mil so I spent another 30. But unlike Hammer 30 million can't hurt me."



So what does hammer do? Return fire! What the hell is this old man doing about he's dissing Jay-Zed? He took it all the way back to '93 with that rapping style. Not even LL Cool J raps like that anymore.



Semtex asked Jay-Z about the situation here

And with that,

Throwback Tune of the Day: MC Hammer tribute

Let's take it back to when Hammer was, well, MC Hammer. I don't know if I'll ever hear these songs the same way anymore after this embarrassment. But hey, here it is. U Can't Touch This



And 'Pray'

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
