Mavado and Vybz Kartel Fans Clash

There have been reports that Mavado and kartel fans clashed yesterday tuesday December 30th. Media reports are that one man has been Hospitalised in serious condition after being stabbed on a section of Mannings Hill road in Kingston Metropolitan Region of Jamaica. There are reports that other persons sustained minor injuries during what is described as a melee.
The troubled started when a man started painting an image of Mavado in the vicinity of an area called "Big Yard." It is reported that persons said to be fans of Vybz Kartel approached the man and ask him to stop painting and then a confrontation started and he was stabbed.
Residents of a nearby community as well as supporters of the entertainers joined in and turned the scene into a melee.
The police are patrolling the area and have indicated that the tension started from the Sting stage show.

Kartel Mavado Feud Reaches Managerial Level

In a response to an earlier statement made by Mavado's Management about the clash with Vybz Kartel, the state of his career and managerial affiliates, Vybz Kartel's Managerial Affiliates have put out a statement countering allegations and insults that were made with insults and allegations of their own.
The stamement referred to Mavado's Manager as "Foo-lian Griffiths-Jones" among other things, in counter to earlier statements calling Claude Mills (Vybz Kartel Associate?) a 'for hire-hack'. The statement mentioned that since Busy Signal left Mr. Griffiths management he has been reaping success and that the Mavado association with him has thus far resulted in the artist being banned from countries like Guyana, Bahamas, St. Vincent and was deported from the USA among other things.
They statment also indicated that Kartel has his own record label Adijahiem Records and manages himself and has a business manager for his Daggering Condom and Vybz Rum.
There were also counter allegations that Mavado, according to the statement "spent several hundred thousand dollars to load up several coaster buses in Waterhouse, and Cassava Piece and issued free tickets to his supporters to take them to Jamworld in Portmore?"

It was clear in the statement that these guys have known each other for sometime and because of the feud between Kartel and Mavado things have 'soured further'
It is a sad state of affairs that these guys have let Mavado and Kartel feud engulf them like this, can you imaging the young/old educated and not so educated fanatics what it must be like for them?
We wouldn't want things to get uglier than they have so we appealing for some ceasefire at this time. Calm down take a deep breath and refocus all that negative energy and continue to make music.

Mavdo, Kartel and Bounty Under Police Probe...

The cops are reviewing the Sting Tape to assess the criminal charges to be laid against Mavado and Vybz Kartel in their recent stint at the Sting 2008 Dancehall Stage Show. The charges are associated with the breaches in the Town and Communities Act due to the use of profanity by the artists.

Well my advice is that they should review the entire sting tape and chances are Mavado and Kartel should have some company where those charges are concerned.
For Mavado this might affect him a little bit, as being an international artist from Jamaica you want to keep the records clean and minimize any interruption with your ability to conduct your dealings internationally. As for Kartel it just keeps the visa etc a bit further.. I'm not sure how much that hurts.

Bounty right yah now probably a keep his fingers crossed, his head angry and his mouth miserable. He is currently under the microscope by the police, which has resulted in his Range being seized and toed earlier this week for reason not very clear at the moment.

The I'm So Special Remixes

You know when a good work of art is done there is no need to mess with it because its good. The I'm So special song by Mavado have gone under a couple of remixes that have (to me) fallen way short of the quality of the original track, though the original track in the end is a bit unusual but I guess thats what makes it special. There is one done with Foxy Brown (Listen Here) that did no justice to the man thing, though it was somewhat formulated as a diss song for kartel and Lil Kim. There is one done with Tru Life as well as more recently with Toni Yayo from G-Unit. These are not as bad the Foxy Brown one but they still didnt do too much justice to the track, these remixes only contributed only one verse in the song and I guess is just one of those underground cameos that perhaps wanted a piece of the Mavado hype tuh.
Even the track On the Rock with Jay Z.. him kinda rough it up a bit, I guess its difficult to match Mavado Melody. We looking forward to see the official video but in the mean time gwaan tek in the unofficial one (Click Here)

Kartel Spent $1 Millon Dollars for crowd support?

There have been allegations that Vybz Kartel had bought approximately $1 million worth of fans to chair him on at sting, who later turned their back on him. It is reported that allegations are coming from Mavado's management team. In a statement put out by the management team it was quoted as saying that Kartel has No Visa, No Manager and No record Deal and was told to continue writing songs and not rely too heavily on the art of DJing. The statement in the same breath stated that Claude Mills cannot manage Kartel, saying that Kartel has switched managers and associates several times and implied to be unstable and should be reconsidering his career at the moment.
The statement also made indication of Mavado's achievement since he bussed in 2006, having won a number of international awards including the MOBO awards, having super star Jay-Z on his album, Mavado had Rollingstone Magazine's endorsement as the most important artist since Bob Marley and he also have several hits on the Billboard charts.
There was also mention of the fact that Kartel lost the clash at Mr. Laing's Sting 2008 because the crowd in the end was for the SingJ Mavado, when Ninjaman asked the question it was clear that Mavado had won and that Kartel made mistakes in saying that he "nyam punnany" and also the fact that it was a David vs Goliath scenario because it was Kartels Territory, the fact that he is a DJ and also acclaimed to be the best lyricists in the business...
... and of course the million dollar allegation...

bwoy... these are some serious allegations.. at the time of this composition there had been no response from the empire camp..
These are the aftershocks of the big event, I think we shall have more..
LAING you BAD to Rass!! ...but if this man can find millions (though jamaican dollars i assume) just fi that sting morning.. him rich... it look like him send back the gun dem to Smith and Weston..LOL

Kartel buil Tune about Sting 2008 Clash

The dust has not even settled yet and Vybz Kartel has already made a song on what had happened at Sting 2008. This is not the first he has done something like this it has been said in the start up of the counteractions and diss songs he heard the tracks from mavado and immediately build a counteraction on the spot, as well as tune about rumours that he had died after the altercation with Ninja man at Sting some time ago..
anyway check out the tune

Aidonia Among the worst Performers at Sting 2008

This is not the first time Aidonia get boo, but im not sure its for the same reasons every time. He has some basic flaws in his stage performance that seem to excluded some rehearsal or a style that is unsuitable for live audiences. We can say he has gotten use to it by now or has he? Though it would be a little bit unfair to say that this was a crowd that was very welcoming and that he had to do some really bad stage work to get boo, the sting crowd is a tuff one and always seem to be in a boo mood. I guess it has something to do with the fact that they had stand and wait and go through over 100 performances... which makes them a bit irritable. But to me the situation was made fueled for Aidonia when;

1) the band didnt work with him perfectly, well initially
2) He cut the songs too short, he started and stop way short (dash weh dat)
3) He was singing too fast
4) He went to diss munga, busy etc..(they are not on the show)
5) Him big up Kartel, Rhyno and Mavado...
6) Too much chatting...

It could be all of the above or one or a few of the them.. but he can take my foolish advice and watch the clip (see a piece of it here) and practice to become perfect...
He can take comfort in the fact that it was not him alone got booed off stage, there were some other terrible performances. ...
I dont want to put up another pole but you can post your comments

Older DJ's Finished? Fighting to the bitter End

With all the sting Hype and confusion .. which soon ware out, there are some things happening that not really getting any light at the moment. I see where them asking whats wrong with Bounty Killa, asking why him a bigup Kartel and the Portmore Empire and still referring to Kartel as him son... Is this a changing of the guard, is this the end of the War Lord, the Ground God?.. I certainly hope not for the simple reason that im from era of the early Beenie, Killa hype. ... Now that beenie turn grandpa and all the other DJ prior to 2000 almost dont exist anymore.. its a new leaf, change has come. These guys are now history?.. round head dem a fight for dear life.. lets hope they dont get any suicidal thoughts.
There have been reports that the ole veteran Ninja Man is not going out without a fight. He and Grandpa Beenie almost went into a fight on Christmas day at GT Extravaganza in St. Elizabeth. Reports are that "Ninja Man left the stage to move in the direction that Beenie Man was standing in, a tussle ensued between Ninja Man and members of Beenie Man's entourage. As a result, Beenie Man was escorted on-stage by his entourage and the police." But in the report Beenie Man summed it up quite nicely saying "Mi caan pay Ninja Man nuh mind, him nuh have nutten fi lose and him nuh have nutten fi gain. Bounty nuh have nutten fi lose or gain either."

Well I think these guys especially Beenie have few more hit tunes left in him.. as to how far he can go thats another thing... he just might out last the Flippa, Blak Rhino (click to see blak rhino performance), Einstien them... we have to see (if we live that long LOL)..but Killa based on what him a say look like a it dat still, so we can thank him for the Mavado,Kartel and the rest.

Sting 2008 Bounty Booed, The Clash Draw?

STING 2008 is finally over and I was pleased to see that the artist did their thing on stage and it didnt get violent.
Mavado came on stage first with a mask over his head and immediately called out Vybz Kartel to clash... well Kartel came out in a army fatigue with helmet and all kinda bag and pan. They chant tune fi tune like the good old days, though not all that smooth as they didnt go too far in the songs just the fist line and thats it. Kartel at one point brought a coffin on stage and Mavado push it off the stage. The crowd reaction was not clear as to who won the clash but up to the very last minute when Mavado walked off the stage and came back after Kartel kept calling him... did a track mi not even hear so good but him get a good forward.
Ninjaman came on when the dust was settled and ask the question who won... and it sound like they gave Mavado the edge.
Earlier the people Boo bounty killa ..i didnt like that im not sure why they did he didnt stay long. Beenie came on stage and did his thing and facilitating a cameo from two children that seem to do much better than a lot of the artists ..especially the little girl.
Anyway when the sun get hotter you will see all the clips on youtube if didnt already.. you decide who took sting.. come back and vote on the polls here at JamaicaDancehallMusic.

Sting 2008 Early Report, Some Forward Some Boo

Well the early reports out of Sting 2008 thus far are that some people get nuff forward and some get boo.
Flippa Mafia mash up the place with his popular tracks and topped off things by throwing money in the crowd.. and of course the crowd love that.
Kiprich ... got some of the biggest forward with his onslaught on the Monster Empire. He called out the Monster Empire but there was no sign of Ghost and such persons. They however turned up later to redeem themselves did their thing and was finally booed, after complaining about the Rim and Tyre weh Bounti Killa took back from them, they said that they wanted Bounty Killa ..and dont know why battyman Kiprich a diss dem..
Serani and Bugle performed well and got some good forwards.
Spice tear down the place coming onstage in a boxing suit ready for battle unleashing diss on Macka Diamond and QP she was later joined by Vybz Kartel and did ramping shop.
Bling Dawg came on did his thing the crowd didnt too like it after a while and he got booed. Adonia was also Booed... he started the first few seconds well when big Kartel Balck Ryno and Mavado but quickly faded when started dissing munga and busy signal..
Well my opinion on the Aidonia thing is that he need to take leaf from Assassin and learn how to perform.

Dancehall Dancer ICE Killed

The youngman that created the Gully Creepa Dance that Usain Bolt buss at the Olympics earlier this year was shot and killed in cold blood by gunmen this morning in Kingston. It has been reported that the dancer stopped to talk to someone and was pounced upon by gunmen who shot and killed him on the spot and took the vehicle he was driving. It is reported that a female that was in the vehicle was thrown out by the gunmen and is said to be very shaken up, however it is not clear as to whether she was otherwise harmed. The body of the dancer according to reports remained on the street for sometime before the relevant authorities came to do their processing.

Bwoy it really sad in the Big Christmas Holiday.. them kill the yoot... we dont know the ulterior motive but on the surface right now it look like robbery. I dont know the nature of the mixup that these guys are in.. but its very much a pity to take out anybody no matter what dem do.. it seems hanging or no hanging these man dont even quint.
Condolences to the family of ICE and may his spirit live on in his siblings and the rest of the dancers.

Mavado get Boo at Island Exlosion?

I see on a couple of internet website saying that Mavado get boo at Island Explosion stage show in Clarendon on the 25th Christmas Day. Most persons have been denying the allegations... So far there is no definite proof as to what is what, but allegations are that the Gully God also mentioned Spices name saying that the Teacha nyam out Spice and all these things..
Anyway this is all have on it the Teacha a work with Spice and Beenieman on stage

Vybz Kartel pre-Sting Interview

OK! I didn't even thought there would be a response but this appear to be the response to the Mavado Interview on Jamaican Television which casted some doubt about his appearance and a possible Clash at Sting. This is the Vybz Kartel interview on the same programme.

Serani, Blak Ryno Draft Picks For 2009

Well 2009 is almost here and some 'new' artist has already stamped their class on the business for 2008. It would be a little bit redundant to say that Blak Ryno and Serani are people to look for in 2009. Serani is currently mashing up the Billboard charts with "No Games" and Blak Ryno have a number of local tracks ..that are not normal.. the man have thing a way. Tracks like "Bend Over" and "Sen Go Home" .. sick and we expect to here more from him in 2009.
There are other artist that we expect some good stuff from and already within the the Big ship camp we have Jim Laden and Bramma. Already Jim a get some good props, he has been around from the Rising Stars 2006 days and certainly don't look like he is giving up and he shouldn't cause his thing has longevity. Me expect Tifa, Timberlee and the rest of crew to come good in 2009... im not sure if them done school yet.. but as soon as them finish them college education they can put the 100 stab into the business... by the way Sizzla and Assassin did finish up by Utech?..and who they keep referring to as collage nigger in the songs?..

Mavado in Movie
It has been reported that Mavado is in the acting business a feature called "What Goes Around" is a US feature that follows the romantic relationships of two brothers. Written and directed by Steve 'Tehut-Nine' McAlpin, 'Gully God' Mavado plays himself and the American. cast includes music celebs Flippa Mafia and KC Jockey.

Targeting Kartel fairly on the bleaching thing?

I hear Mavado and his fans.. talking extensively about the bleaching habits of Kartel of the Portmore Empire (which was said to be formerly owned by Deva Brat et. al.).. and wonder if they heard Blak Ryno in his interview saying he use to touch up one and twice times for the girls dem (of course)....
But (even though this might be stale).. I can not but put a bit of a worrisome frown on my face every time i see this particular Alliance member and former member of the scare them crew.. The Elephant man.. To tell you truth .. mi see it but mi nuh say nothing for the past five years or so (and mi know anuh me one)... because Mr. Lex (R.I.P) did his tune about bleaching and no body never really pay attention until now. A lot of artist over the years was against this form of identity theft.. or change of identity i should say, but has ninja man indicated in his interview recently for sting 2008, the whole dance chemical out.. so a better you just leave it be.
But people unnuh think a today yah people a bleach.. inna de book Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey (page 78) it mentioned that the people dem a bleach dem face and a SWITCH them identity.. and this was before the 1920's.. yow people read up innuh Marcus Garvey.. Bigup you-self Mutabaruka.
But this is war.. and "all is fair in love and war" ...according to the Teacher
AND MI A HEAR SEH MICHEAL JACKSON NEARLY DIE OVER THE WEEKEND..mi wonder if the bleaching a tek it toll pon him.. check the link "Enteraiment Buzz" about that one..

Vybz Kartel in Freemasonery aka Lodge

There have been several statements and allegation in relation to Addijah Palmers association with freemasonery and his acclamation to evil deeds. According to wikipedia in an entry on David Books it stated "Mavado ...referenced about Vybz Kartel's belief in freemasonry and criticizes his tattoos."
In in a recent interview with a local newspaper Mr Palmer (aka Di Teacha) was asked if he was a christian he said "NO", however his family members are christians. When asked why in the track called Wha Dat Fah he said the line..."to how me bloodclaat bad mi nuh must know god"..and in tune called Weh Dem A Guh he said .."Addi the devil too dyam hard" ..and in Broad Day Light ...he went on to say "tings mi do people seh mi mus go a hell, mi seh pussy mi nuh mus know God."
There was also indication that an email entitled "Is Vybz Kartel Really Evil?" was in circulation. It claims that the artiste is a freemason aka Lodge

Kartel was asked about being associated to this devil thing he reportedly said "It's just me. me represent everything that is devilish. dem seh God create man from his image, but really a man create God, we create him in our minds, when dem seh tings like dese yuh play wid it, play wid di masses."
when aked if he was a member of the lodge in Jamaica Addi replied ..."Mi believe inna society. whether it be a society of notion or a society of specific groups or sects, so let's leave dat in di open."

bwoy ..the man dem take this thing way beyond the stars... I dont know, can he use this lodge thing and get a visa? i guess that is a secret.

Kiprich "Rounhead a Battyman"

What ..the hell is going on with these Jamaican dancehall artist. For those who have not been following the beef between Kiprich and Monster Empire which includes General B, RounHead and Ghost and of course completely (i think) separate and apart from Portmore Empire. ..This beef is about to intensify
I over heard Kiprich expressing his anger about the beef with the Monster Empire in an interview.. what shocked me (like the George Bush shoes incident) was what Mr Kiprich had to say.. the man really dissed them (monster empire) bad... with some serious alligations..
1) Monsters deliberately started the beef with Bounty killa because they were broke 2) Kiprich wrote a couple songs for Bounty Killa ..him respect Killa
3) Kiprich ask if Monster can handle a Bounty Killa war
4)Monster dissed Kiprich (see youtube)
5) Before the beef Monster were begging their way around begging kiprich $4k $5k quite regular
6) Roundhead a battyman
7) Roundhead cream him hair
9) ..again you will get more at sting..

Mavado New Tunes fi Sting 2008 Clash

A pure confusion a gwaan before the arrival of sting...because in a interview posted earlier on this site .. there was some doubt cast by the Gully God about clashing at Sting '08.. even though he indicated that he would not run from nuh clash.. However based on his performance and utterances including some new tunes dissing Vybz Kartel at Stone Love 36th Anniversary seems Vado is on the attack and the clash is very much on.
Yow the man dem a say killa look like a new artist pon the stage in this one...
Lady Saw .. mad... Busy Killed this one as well... But listen fi the Mavado track Dem.

Aidonia Diss Kartel.. and Empire again??

The rumours ..have been intensifying about the tension between Aidonia and the Portmore Empire. There have been rumourlike reports indicating that at a show 3 weeks ago in the Bronx, New York Aidonia reportedly said that Kartel is the Devil and bare Fools and Clowns him have around him, Kartel putting these fools ahead of him and one of them sound like a robot and how Kartel thief the empire from Deva Bratt all these things. The report also indicated that Adonia was sorry he had left the Alliance camp to now be treated like this by Kartel. This is in contrast to earlier reports that Aidonia has denied dissing Kartel in a track called "Big Matic Nah Laugh" LISTEN

But bwoy ..all these conflicting reports.. so if it nuh go so nearly go so

Anyway it also was reported that the news was a surprise to Kartel ..who reportedly said that he has not seen Aidonia for some 3 weeks and Aidonia can leave the Empire if he wish.. because him (Aidonia) a big man ..and wishes him well
BUt wait.. wasn't Aidonia a member of the J.O.P ..and not empire.. ?

I'm sure we will get more on this least by the 26th
I dont know if its this session he did the diss ..the sound quality really poor..

Mavado Might not Clash Kartel at Sting 08?

Mavado on a TV interview in Jamaica said he does not know about any clash.. him never talk to Laing ..and Laing never talk to his management.... he seems to be "concerned" about the amount of security and the barriers and cages and all these things that will be at sting 2008... and he seem to be worried about the safety of the patrons at the event this year.... He did indicate that if it the confrontation situation arise he will not back away from the clash (well lets hope so..dat people a pay dem money fa)...
But he does sounds a bit shaky ...and he shoudnt because he has the material and is currently in the lead.... is he ..well not according to my polls
This is the interview the quality off but you can see and hear what him a say.


Beenieman Now a Grandfather

Moses Beenieman Davis is now a Grandfather... oh dear.. Desha Gaye (his daughter) 17 years of age gave birth to giggling baby girl recently. It is understood that the baby will be given the last name Davis as the father is uncertain at this time. The mother had not told the grandfather who is the father of the child. The grandfather told the mother to change the first name of the baby from Destiny because he does not like it. The mother now lives in the grandfathers house in Florida and gets support from him to attend college...

But it seems to me the last name of the daughter want some amendments tuh..!!?

Adonia Dissed Vybz Kartel?

I saw this clip on youtube where a Aidonia in his usual high speed lyrical rhymes sounded like him Dissed Vybz Kartel in it. And there has been a spate of allegations indicating that the two are at odds.. even in the Blak Ryno interview (see older posting) people asking whats the beef between Kartel and Aidonia... well in a recent star report Aidonia indicated ...."there is no rift between me and Kartel. The song post online and since people a tell me seh Kartel and me a war. Me and Kartel have nutten. Everything good wid me and Kartel and everyone from the Portmore Empire."
In the track it sound like he said.."Clap it up Addi yuh head get lick offa cuff mek dem drop buff pon di plaza"....but according to Aidonia he did not say 'Addi' but 'baddy' and in fact the song says "target mi shoot offa mi nuh miss offa, clap it up yuh baddy, yuh head get lick offa."... according Donia there is no truth also to "another rumour that Aidonia and Portmore Empire's Blak Ryno were involved in a fight recently. It has been said that Vybz Kartel was in defence of Blak Ryno and attempted to hit Aidonia, but someone interceded." .. there are planning to do a track together and a couple of shows..
Anyway ...people listen the track ..just a small excerpt was posted .. what you hear at times 1:25 to 1:47 in this clip?

Blak Ryno ...pre Sting Interview

OK.. this was the interview with Blak Ryno from the Portmore Empire ..him a talk realy low in this one... i'm not sure if its a confidence thing. Well you can watch the video but you have to turn up the volume... Hear what he thinks of Mavado, What is his inspiration, If him have pickney etc... This would be his first solo performance at big stage show like Sting.
Ryno in this one complaining of throat problems.. this is a serous matter a sing J he needs to have his voice and with that style where he hits some strange notes and keys..if him cant keep it up him might end up sounding like a roach... no pun intended..oh and him diss roach in this one as well.

Dont Over do Auto Tune

I read in a recent report about this auto tune technology, where a top Studio Engineer has indicated that the use of auto-tune should be toned down and limited to a few words in a track and not to be abused. This was more so on the fact that auto-tunes are difficult to perform live.. by the way demarco and munga is on sting this year? Im not sure.. but I have heard Munga Live and him nuh sound too bad as long as him use turntables instead of a live band ..all is good.
This auto-tune as i pointed out before is not new, Beenie Man and Miss Thing used it in the song called 'Dude'...and it was American never ageing 70 year old pop star Cher that reintroduced it after a long break since the 70's. More recently T-Pain as gone as far as staking a claim on the technique saying that people should pay royalties for using the feature... is this fool crazy? ... Did Munga and Demarco heard that?.. are they paying T-Pain royalties for Auto-Tune?.... LOL..
But one thing for sure it seems it can take any rusty voice person and turn them in a star. So we not fighting it we working with it.
This is one of favourite done by Deva long b4 the current mix up with Portmore Empire its a Munga Diss

Music Bizz Sticky Bizz

Season Greeting to all.. take it easy this Christmas..yeah yuh need to live to see 2009.. but yuh can take some small risk..
Risk. The music business is risky, very risky. I saw some reports about producers swearing not to work with young artist because them too hype. Koshen in a rebellious mode leaving his management team. The relationship between the management team that worked with Fanton Mojah and Nanko broke down, Adonia was reportedly refused to sign a contract with the Scatta Burrell management and from that Scatta say he not dealing with no more young artist according to the report... So what the young artist them ago do?... if the management them fraid ..den the bizz get stagnated?
Well that leave them to the elements like Alliance and Empire...
That would be really sad...(or would it be?) but it seems that these producers dont know the business.. sign the man dem b4 you spend money on them at least cover expenses.. I dont do business but is pure common sense. So when Koshen management a bawl seh him run gone and dem ago loose what they invest thus far.. yuh guys know collateral concept?.. is the same thing a fuck up the the world right yah now without no means of repayment..

Don Corleon T Pain Munga Demarco Kartel

For some time ..I thought that when the war with Munga and Vbz Kartel empire ..namely Deva Brat was in High Gear, the working relationship with between Kartel and Don was diminished...But then recently I heard a track that was done by the two "Kalico"...not as bad as "smoking by".. but it can listen. I think at that time when they did smoking by, Don used the autotune technique sound good though it was not a new thing... a mean T Pain has been making a wack out of this autotune thing.. why not Demarco and Munga as well.. shit thinking about it as well,.. cut me some auto tune..yeah

Foxy Brown Diss Kartel, Lil Kim in Mavado Remix

There is a new remix out for the tune thats mashing up the local and international charts - yeah ..Mavado's "I'm So Special"... a sing over on the track was done by Foxy Brown is set to cause stir in the business but on a different level... Foxy in the track make reference to Vybz Kartel and Lil Kim bout them bleaching habits... Upto news time we have not heard any reply from these two artists... Although the reason is clear for the Lil Kim diss the reason for the Kartel diss some say is because of Kartel's diss on Foxy during the early 2000's war between Kartel and red square, namely Spragga Benz and Assassin.
...Never a dull moment rass claaat...tek it in deh...

The Grammy Awards ceremony will take place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on February 8.... so you can route for your artist...
Bwoy I would a love to put mi money on Elephant but.. bwoy im not so confident though
Yuh done know who we can look for in terms of nomination next year... "even if him nuh left the gully"

Ninja Man in Car Accident?

Lawd Have Mercy!! ..Ninja Man and his family almost lost their lives recently in a Car Accident ..according to a news report. The Don Gorgan in a recent report indicated that a Toyota Corolla that he was driving, with his family as passengers, met in an accident on November 29. The vehicle hit head-on with an oncoming motor car that got out of control, writing off both vehicles. It is reported that the only Ninja's wife Wendy, sustain the more serious injuries. It is uncertain as to the state of her condition but has been indicated that Ninja and his family are at home counting their blessings and taking their time to recover.--- the problem is I haven't heard anything official on this report ... so for now, we will just wait and see...
