Thought of Thursday

I really need to work on the titles for this. I will get there. Anyway, a few things that took my fancy to blog today.

Gyptian acoustic session

This is the bollocks! (means really good). Gyptian's got that sincerity in his voice with the raw vocals. Feeling it. He sings Hold You, Beautiful Lady and Nah Let Go. Nah Let Go sounds better like this and I like the song.



Check my interview with Gyptian for MTV Wrap Up

Whip My Hair songwriter disses Soulja Boy

This is bollocks. Jacked from SBTV. If you don't know the background, Soulja Boy tweeted that he wrote the Willow Smith banger because he's on the credits. He is getting royalties because of the "Hop up out the bed turn my swag on" line and that is it. So the writer dissed Soulja Boy.



Absolutely pathetic.

WTF of the Day: Lil Wayne doesn't like dark skinned girls (allegedly)

From Necole Bitchie via @Tahirah.

This is disgraceful. So according to the email Lil Wayne (allegedly) got these girls up in the hotel room to socialise (possibly) - one light-skinned, one dark-skinned - drops a sly diss at the dark one, to which the dark one shoots back "But you daughter is dark-skinned". Lil Wayne appears upset at the comment (allegedly) replies "“my daughter is a dark skin millionaire thats the difference between her and u”. Now it doesn't stop there. He (allegedly) went on to say “MY daughter is the first and last dark skin child im having, the rest of my baby moms light skin chicks i even got an asian baby moms to make sure i have a daughter with good hair, too bad we had a son”.

When I check it, it could be true. Lauren London, Nivea and the Oriental looking (not 100% what she is. Could have mixes. Don't want keyboard warriors telling me she's half Cherokee or some sh*t mum are all quite light themselves. Either way, am I surprised (if) he said it? Nope. I sometimes question what was more harmful to the black power movement in USA, gangs and drugs or rap and (black) comedy. #KanyeShrug

Flashback Tune of the Day: Bearman 'Drink Beer'

Remember this Channel U classic? Bear Man killed this. What the hell happened to him? Got a 9-5? Good luck to him. Got a classic. Someone needs to do a Channel U set. Nuff classic Channel U tunes in a club set

  1. "I'm the brown bear like yogi, deep in the jungle on par like Mowgli" - real talk right there. They don't make songs like this anymore. RIP Channel U...

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
