Thinking it's Tuesday

Chronik 'Ring'

This tune is a madness!!!!!!!! Chronik is a Slew Dem member along with Tempa T. This is Tempz's flow and delivery. Not sure who came with the style first cos I'm not grime like that. Either way, this tune is a proper hype. Logan ended his show with this a couple weeks ago sending the grime fraternity on Twitter into a frezy

"Guys think that they're sendin' for me
I dare one of them to physically touch
Catch man on the phone cheesing in JD
You thought you was hype that night


Orange Hill Production 'Dan Man'

Ras Kwame and Jnr. Tubby, son of dub pioneer King Tubby, to form Orange Hill Productions. Don't know what Orange Hill signifies? Hint: Ras Kwame has dreadlocks. Together they've teamed up with Richie Dan and Chino, son of Freddie MGregor/brother to leading dancehall producer Stephen McGregor for a 2010 version of UKG (UK Garage) classic Dan Man.


Sounds a bit Pon Di Floor-ish innit? Can't find the original on YouTube. Tune knocked.

As with everything there is a dubstep version, and like always, I am not complaining.


[Thanks JP]

New vid: Robyn 'Dancehall Queen'

(Leading on from Major Lazer) Produced by Diplo of Major Lazer fame (yes I know he worked with MIA and Santigold etc. before but no one cares as much as they do Major Lazer). When I say new, it's a few days old I think.

It's funny; the song's called Dancehall Queen but the beat or riddim (have to keep it authentic) is closer to traditional reggae. Needs some toasting in the essence of I-Roy and U-Roy.

Bangs puts things into perspective

Most Facebook users will have seen their UK friends change profile pictures to cartoon characters in aid of NSPCC. Bangs put the whole farce into perspective here

"Haffi get pu**y but... (you ain't got a VISA so) I can rape"

'Ang tight this dirty rapist

Safo’s victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the court she had lived in fear of Safo and his threats to her immigration status, and was deeply ashamed and embarrassed by what had happened.

Look at his trim for goodness sake.

(The "Haffi get di pu**y but..." is taken from this classic by Sizzla. Not for the feint/faint hearted)

Nicki Minaj... no more said

I watched this and thought of a random question: mandem, Onika "Nicki Minaj" Maraj asks you to marry her but you have to change YOUR last name. Do you accept?

I haven't reached a decision yet... She's way too much for me. No lie, I'd be whipped like a thoroughbred (horse) in the final furlong on her. No woman should have all that power.

Another question that I've had for a while is would I rather go out with a girl that A. loves music and raps or B. one that loves football and chants. I think I'll go with A. on that

Heard about Chuck D wilin' out?

Public Enemy frontman goes in on something I can relate to. Made these tweets whilst watching MTV in South Africa. Read it here. I say the same thing about watching certain shows (The Hills and that crap stuff)when I'm in Jamaica. It's pushing a lifestyle that isn't really one attained by many people's like it's the norm. Even the music videos. Lot of people losing their identity. World's becoming one place.

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
