UK video update

So finally, the long-awaited video finally dropped. Chris Brown featuring UK MC/rapper Chipmunk (I think they made a typo on the title, I'm sure it's Chris Brown's song) 'Champion'

Chris Brown delivered an emotive verse there, really held the camera well, and Chipmunk held it down well. Haven't really heard him do too many feature verses in the past apart from Ironik's Elton John song 'Tiny Dancer' and remixes (Tinchy's Take Me Back and couple others).

I take it this from Chris Brown's new album? The one with that Yeah 3x (remember that tune? I nearly forgot myself).

But onna real, well done to Chipmunk getting Chris Brown on a track. Tune's a grower still, powerful but I know Chipmunk's delivery could have been better. Sounds lacklustre next to Chris Brown's. The video is stunning visually... I'm sure there's room in the video for a story but it doesn't matter too much.

Oh and remember I blogged that I tweeted Chipmunk worked with a dancehall artist? Well I wass right. He worked with Mavado.

Lethal Bizzle featuring Grime Allstars 'Pow 2011'

Finally dropped. Can't say I like the song that much but it can gwaan. Don't like Ghetts' bit at all. Shame, cos I'm a big fan of Justin.

Video's alright still.

Check UK/Congolese comedian Eddie Kadi refix Pounded Yam 2011

"Well, well, well, are you serious? You've never heard of pounded YAM!"

This is actually funny. Smart rework of lyrics. Pounded yam is some form of west African food. Never had it before but I'm guessing you put yam in a bowl and pound it with some form of wooden instrument.

Wales remix? This is funny for another reason

Skepta "My new flow's so sick MC's tryna find out where I caught the infection"

Skepta tells no lies, someone put one big dutty Duracel battery in his back the way he is rippin' these tunes right now.

"And now that I'm on the playlist I'm not tryna get put back on the hitlist
Back in the streets of north London dippin' in and out of T with the biscuit"

Urghk! The Frisco sample for the chorus is dutty!!! The beat is straight muckilly. Bars are friggin' gone! This is too sick.

And the Mike Lowery video dropped?

Tune is still absolutely bonkers!!! I need to see him drop this in a rave. It will duppy. I know the perfect tune to mix this with. Urghk!!! I know someone will do it. This is a rap song, video's about people dissing on laptop. Hold tight this comment on YouTube

"I cant stand this Skepta dude, for fuck sake, fucking wanker. KMT




Be Right Back...Some 1 is at my door. lol"

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
