#TeamUK - Taking Over (Rick Ross 'MC Hammer' freestyle)

Jacked from QoS' blog. So recently we've had the heavily-debated Game Over and remix as well as Pow 2011 plus all the other versions with cream of the UK talent. Now we have this...

This has to be the Renford Rejects of #TeamUK nah?

p.s. Mafiella looks like a stereotypical "Yardie". Related to that, it crossed my mind that some of the most "Yardie" women I've seen in Jamaica have been English lol. Weird innit?

Moving on, slightly

Vybz Kartel and Sheba (Di Diva) 'Like Christmas'

Sometimes I wonder how big Kartel would be without the legal restraints.

Video clean, would love to get a nice whine to this tune.

The tune at the beginning is called Cheat Pon Him on Birchill's Sexy Back riddim. Big tune. Big riddim. Check the Busy Signal on there. Another artist who should be much bigger than he is. MUCH bigger.

I'll embed that one

Check my interview with Busy Signal for MTV UK Wrap Up here

Maaaaaaaaan, how I wish I was in Jamaica for the Christmas period.

Gyptian's performance at Soul Train Awards

In case you didn't know Gyptian beat the likes of Mr Vegas and Vybz Kartel to nab the Best Reggae Award. Yes they have it. I'm not sure if they showed his performance on TV but here it is.

Jamaican vibes >>>>>>>>>>>> _______

Jamaica land we love!

Buju Banton's first tune out on bail

And what a ferocious tune it is. He deals with riding riddim so effortlessly all while talking the big tings dem.

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
