More tune's I'm feeling

AKS - House Called Home

Both the tune and video go all the way in. UK rapper AKS A subject people such as myself can relate to.

Opens with that (prick) Enoch Powell's politically controversial "Rivers of Blood" speech, AKS questions whether England is home.

I-Octane - Mi Sorry

Mi nah stop shout about this artist. He is one of the most consistent and versatile artists right now. Sings, deejay (raps) and combines the two depending on the riddim. Always with a conscious message.

He proclaims "No boy can't give me no gun to buss like they don't have a finger too" - which if you don't get it means he will not let a gang leader get him to kill anyone when they're capable of doing it themselves. You can bookmark it in an anti-gun tune.

This features on the Don Corleon produced Broken Hearts riddim. Other fave cuts include Professor, Wayne Marshall, Pressure, Richie Spice. Generally a solid riddim.

I-Octane - Nah Wash (Too Licky Licky)

Just for contrast, another sick new tune by Octane. This one buns out all the people that bow down to next man. On a dancehall flex though. Listen to how man ride the riddim with conscious.

Christopher Martin - Bus A Juice

Bit of a crass title, but don't let that take away from the message in the song is good. Chris encourages youths to "Buss a Juice/ Get a youth/ Nuh take life, make life."

Pioneer ft. Egypt - Stronger

"In The Morning" is still one of those tracks that I'm annoyed didn't chart in the top 40 UK singles. I'm not sure if this one is of that caliber, but who cares? The song is big.

Got that '90s soulful house vibe with Egypt producing an anthem. Really good quality song I think music lovers of all ages will appreciate.

(If I've blogged this already, I apologise. If not, I don't know why I haven't.)

P Square - No One Like You

I hear these songs in the clubs, but because I rarely understand any of the lyrics I don't know names or anything. There's a particular song I'm after, so I'm just sourcing all the bait songs in clubs until I find it. Anyway, I stumbled across this one yesterday. Don't go and tell me "Oh, this is old" I know it's old. Cha man.

Some African's don't call this afrobeats because it isn't like Fela and the back in the days songs. One of my best bredrins is Ghanaian, he hates these songs. Only one he like is Olaje. But this is such a sweet delicate tune. Makes me wanna ask for a front-to-front danss wid a fine byootiful gehl. Ah ah! Eh heh!

Oh yeah, I had a random thought yesterday. America has drug rap by the likes of Young Jeezy and Rick Ross, so I wondered "Does Nigeria have a 419 (fraud) equivalent?" Well, I tweeted "Hip hop has drug rap, does Nigeria have rap about ballin' off sending emails + other 419 scams? English speaking"." My twitter people them told me "Yahooze". Once again, I don't care if I'm late on it. I'm a British-born Jamaican. Mi nuh follow dem ting deh. Oh.

Yahoo, Yahoo is connected to fraud

"Everyday I'm scammin' 'em"

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 .

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
