Real Badman Never Afraid: Euro-Trash records

I haven't done a "Real Badman Never Afraid" segment in a while. If you're unfamiliar with it, this is a time where I share songs I like that people will be surprised I like, deemed uncool by my demographic and some will feel ashamed to admit. But true I'm a rudeman, wicked boy (copyright me and my bredrin) from the day I was born 'til at least 1 minute 26 seconds ago, I don't abide by them rules.

Shout out Christiana on dubbing the genre "Euro-Trash". I got it from here. Follow her and read her blog. You'll get more wisdom than you will on these pages. If you are from foreign lands, Euro Trash was a late night program, pubescent boys stayed up past their bedtime to watch the best possible porn. I say the best possible, but you may have seen a breast here, a bum cheek there with a lot of innuendos and suggestive behaviour. Kids nowadays just load up a prano site, we had to find a friends uncle's video tape or download jpeg's from peer-to-peer download sites. "britney naked breast" always tricked me... sorry, I meant my friends... RIP Lolo Ferrari

Back on track, post was inspired by the bald Cubano, Pitbull and the mandem - Give You Everything. When the beat drops, that warped sound, the chord progessions are a straight moeshing (moesh not mosh. "Moesh" derives from slang use of "emotional"), jump and prancing madness. Current UK #1

Former number 1, LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem. I heard about this song when Wretch 32 went head-to-head with it for singles chart number 1. LMFAO is a strange name so it stuck. First heard it on the countdown show, but I didn't know any info. The skanks I put down in my room to it were on a next type of wave. Then I found out the song info and said "Oh, I see why this beat Wretch now" out aloud to myself mid big fish, little fish, cardboard box'ing.

When you throw this on, close your eyes and tell me you don't see strobe lights, bottles of WKD, ethnic majority boys in a circle with their arms around one another as they jump for freedom... and you yearning to join in with them.

(Even if you weren't gonna see that before, you will now that I've told you. Mind control!) "Everyday I'm shuff-uh-ling"

David Guetta ft. Dik Rida and Nicki Minaj - Where Them Girls At? sees David Guetta rearrange the chords from 2009's "Sexy Bitch" with Akon. Loved that tune, rate this too. Am I the only one that finds it funy that Trinidadian Nicki Minaj is more likely to speak with a Jamaican accent than a Trini one? We all know why (Jamaicans better/more recognisable).

On the flip side, everyone loves this Chris Brown "Beautiful People" song. I don't get the hype. The ones above are far superior on the jump-around-'cos-you-don't-know how-to-dance-too-drunk-to-care scale (I can dance, I don't drink alcohol).

On a flashback vibe now, who remembers Babylon Zoo - Spaceman? I used to hate when it slowed down, because I was used to the sped-up version I knew from the Levi's advert. Listening to it now with my maturer head, it sounds like he's putting down some deep lyrics.

That's all for now

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
