Thoughts of Wednesday

Vybz Kartel 'Dancehall Hero'

This song has been in my head for obvious reasons. This tune mad. If you don't get why he bleaches, you need to understand who Kartel is. Listen to what he is saying in this tune. Kartel wants people to discuss him. That's all it is. And this song is gonna done in England in 2011

Aidonia 'Nuh Par Wid' (Kartel diss)

This is another song that has been in my head for obvious reasons. 'Donia and Kartel need to clash. As a fan, I think the two of them would go all the way on each other. Two of the best badman lyricists in the business. 'Donia fulla lyrics from morning. The riddim mad too. Listen to how he rides it. The control dancehall artists have on a riddim is far superior to rappers. They know how to ride a riddim. Not even spitting double-time or half-time, it's spot on.

Listen to Aidonia and Kartel work together? Lyrics upon lyrics

Throwback Tune of the Day: Mike Jones featuring Slim Thugg and Paul Wall 'Still Tippin'

Remember the times when people were gassed on grills and screwed hip hop? Yeah, not me though. But this tune is a banger on a next level. Lifted off Mike Jones platinum-certified album 'Who Is Mike Jones?' on Swishahouse. Remember he used to give out his number? lol. They weren't the best of spitters but they dropped their rhymes well. Nuff quotables too.

Slim Thug: "I got it made the big boss of the north/ Ain't sh*t changed I still represent Swishahouse haangh" (or a sound like that)

Mike Jones "I'm Mike Jones (who?) Mike Jones/ The one and only you can't clone me/ Gotta lot a friends and lotta homies/ Some are fake and some are phoney" (basic as no frills beans from Lidl's but catchy flow)

Paul Wall: "Whut it do it's Paul Wall I'm the people's champ... I got the inunet [internet] goin' nuts" SICK!

Maxsta's Average Kid is average, kid

I'm sure Tinchy Stryder signed Maxsta. But anyway I'm all for grime acts going pop to eat a food (as they say in Jamaica), but bruv, seen

This tweet is a great

RT @Elij_h Overloaded on average kids thinking they are supa dupa i used to dig their underground stuff like a tractor. O well

Geddit? Supposedly I was the second response in 24 hours hence Elijah's tweet:

"@MarvinSparks your the 2nd response. As I said, my sense of humour is wasted in grime"

Average Kid refers to Maxsta's tune above. Supa Dupa = Griminal's tune. Traktor = Wretch 32's tune. Think that's all of them

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
