HEADLINE BREAKING, MISCHIEF MAKING ENTERTAINERS



By: Maria A. Hitchins

Bwoy some artistes always inna trouble, everytime you tink dem give the headlines a break a dem dat again pon di double, dem can’t stay outta jail, mussi love pee pee inna pail?
Ninja Man a wha wrong wid u massa, mek your name eva call up inna criminal passa passa? But who come tek di cake a Luciano, him mussi stop consult the rasta teachings of Mortimer Plano?
People have it mek joke bout the ‘solid’ bust head he got the other day, and now it is alleged im a harbour criminal stray? No sa, not my ‘messenger’!
But all wha a gwaan his true fans stay steadfast and a pray.
Zebra dem release you and you seemed to have gone silent, people a say dem hope u begging for forgiveness and a repent.
I don’t know how some entertainers find it with themselves, to sing, deejay and chant their way into our youngsters hearts, including all those who go on stage and cuss up pure claat.
From tax evasion, to drug possession, gun crime and mischief making on-line, di ‘duppy’ dem a follow the idiot line that says “all publicity is good publicity, well my dears that will be to your folly!

Mr. Vegas launched his highly anticipated video, I Am Blessed


Mr. Vegas launched his highly anticipated video, I Am Blessed, Tuesday night at the Indies Bar and Grill in New Kingston to rave reviews from those who had come to the private screening.
The press seemed to enjoy the reverse narrative concept of the video with two men pursuing Mr. Vegas through easily recognizable milieus such as the community of Mona, and Papine Square before they reach a revival church. The I Am Blessed video also segues into another gospel-flavoured single, Up Deh, and ends with a scene where a man, presumably the don, enquires why his henchmen have not succeeded in getting rid of Mr. Vegas. They explain that he ran into a church, but the don says chillingly: ‘church ah the best place fi mek the man rest’. Then he sends the men away in disgust.
Comedienne Elva was at her vivacious best, heaping accolades on Vegas for his longevity and consistency in the business.
“Yu stay true to your game, yu never mek no headline fi box down nobody, mi no hear yu inna no ramping shop and yu nah sell no condom,” she said, to titters of laughter from press representatives gathered at Indies Bar and Grill for the video launch.
She grilled Jaywill mercilessly, teasing him for sweating and asking mischievously: are we going to talk about this video for years and years and years?
Jay Will, who won the HYPE TV Video Director of the Year prize this year, played along with the feel-good vibes of the launch and teased Vegas for his poor acting skills.
“Him caan act,” he said to loud laughter. “Him can sing but him caan act.”
Jay Will also explained the concept behind the video, revealing that he had ‘borrowed’ the reverse narrative concept from a Coldplay video, The Scientist.
Vegas said that he was ‘honoured and privileged to have worked with Jay Will on the project”.
“We have a chemistry when it comes to music videos and it worked out well,” Vegas said. The two have done at least eight music videos together.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable video launch with well-known video remixer Kentech putting together a montage of Vegas’ videos over the years that entertained the media until the video was finally shown at 9 p.m.

Etana, Mystic ready for Red Stripe Live



Multi-award-winning songbird, Etana, is eagerly anticipating performing for her fans this weekend at the first staging of the concert dubbed Red Stripe Live.
"Regardless of how often you travel overseas for shows, it's always a special feeling to perform for your home crowd," Etana says, flashing her signature winning smile. "And I am looking forward to Saturday's show," she says.
So far, Etana has collected all of six awards -- including the highly coveted 'Album of the Year' from the EME Awards -- for the stellar word she did last year, and she is also nominated for other awards internationally.
Still beaming, she says, "All these accolades have made me feel very humble and give me strength to carry on and work even harder than before."
Known for songs such as Warrior Love, Blessings, Wrong Address, which are all on her brilliant debut album, The Strong One, the uber conscious Etana is smoothly and confidently claiming her share of the musical pie, while representing female artistes in a way that has rarely been seen before.
Scheduled for Saturday, March 28 at Sabina Park in Kingston, Red Stripe Live has a stellar line-up of reggae/dancehall artistes and musicians, along with a production team that is second to none. An integral part of the line-up, too, is the dancers who have proven time and again their ability to excite and entertain an audience.
Among the dances will be the winner of the Hype Awards Dancer of the Year title, Mystic. Known for her relaxed yet energetic style of dancing, the very talented Mystic has numerous video and a few television commercial appearances to her credit.
"Dancing is all I've ever wanted to do," she says and as such she makes the stage her home and vows to give fans another memorable performance at Red Stripe Live on Saturday.
The event, which will be staged under the patronage of Prime Minister Bruce Golding, will include a band assembled by Dean Fraser with musicians from C-Sharp and the backing bands of Beres Hammond, Stephen Marley and Jimmy
Cliff. Among the other artistes on the showcase are Ernie Smith, Toots, Assassin and I-Octane.

Lisa Grant for Festival of Prayz


P&W artistes Lisa Grant if gearing up for her performance in Canada this weekend for Caribbean Festival of Prayz. The singer along with Katalys Crew will be representing Jamaica at the event as she takes her message of hope to the masses there.
The festival which runs from March 26 – 30 will see Lisa and Katalys performing on March 28.
Lisa has been steadily making her mark on the scene since her 2007 album which features tracks such as Behold I Come Quickly, God Is Able, What Have I Done and The Lamb among others.
With her sweet, soothing voice the singer has been able to make that connection with her listeners.
Grant further endeared herself into the hearts of many when she appeared on the award winning POP Volume One compilation album – another P& W project which brought her ministry to the forefront of local gospel with radio anthems such as the title track ‘Power of Praise’, ‘Stepping Out’ (featuring Ryan Mark) and the Latin inspired acoustical rework of the hymnal classic ‘Leaning’, all bringing her closer to her growing legion of fans.
Following her performance in Canada Grant and P&W stable mate Mr Gallimore will be looking towards the Rustic Concert Series – Pre-Easter Praise Concert on April 4.

MYSTIC CLIMBING TO THE TOP


Having been nominated for at least four major awards this year and emerging victorious in two, dancer Mystic, real name Mystic Davis, is now set on maintaining her steady rise to the top.
Mystic won Best Dancer in 2008 for The Star Readers Choice Awards and the Hype TV Awards. She was also nominated for Best Dancer in a Video at the Youthlink-sponsored Youth View Awards and Best Dancer at the RE TV Awards.
Mystic says, "I am very happy and very grateful to be nominated and to even win the award (Hype) despite all the controversy I've been through because of it ... I worked really hard last year, doing videos, commercials and stage shows and it wasn't for an award, so to be nominated and to even win is a humbling feeling and it makes me grateful for my fans and friends who are supporting my love for dancing."

Her own space

A dancer who has been honing her craft from an early age, Mystic has been quietly building a reputation as the one to watch. One of the newest sensation in the streets, Mystic initially sought to carve out her own space in thehighly competitive dancehall arena, where she jostles with the best, both male and female and usually comes out the winner.
Now, Mystic says she will continue to do what she loves best, "just dancing and performing".
Adding, "I have overseas shows that are booked and confirmed and I am also working on a documentary and a photo shoot."
The dancer, who has gained tremendous popularity since breaking into mainstream just under a year now, attributes the immense love that she has received from fans to the fact that she simply loves and enjoys dancing.
"You will win some and you will lose some, but people see that I genuinely enjoy what I am doing... I smile and I also think I am a good dancer," she said.

RIDING IN SILENCE BECAUSE OF THE BC PEOPLE THEM


By: Maria A. Hitchins

Taxi cabs and buses gone mute, so says the law of the public transport sector what a way dem get astute.
No little music all because the drivers abused it, no little Mutty, Miss Kitty aka Miss fluffy, neither Ragashanti Miss Cherry wash belly, not even a drop of mout a massie Jenny Jenny.
No midday news, how crude, no Madea on dvd, not a picture not a sound, bwoy just tru the B.C. everybody a compound the locking down from country to town.
If road block a happen too bad, gun man and police inna shoot out, river come down and flat bridge flood out, all we can do is get mad.
What a quiet ride it shall be I guess the phone companies will prosper, cause everybody to pass the time a go kotch off pon dem cellular.
Rain a fall breeze a blow this new rule leaves passengers backside and safety out a door!.

ETANA PREPARES TO SOAR HIGHER IN 2009


Popular roots singer, Etana, who has so far enjoyed an astounding season of awards, copping the ‘Female singer of the Year’ title in all local awards, and the much-coveted ‘Album of the Year’ award, is now in overdrive as she prepares to soar even higher in 2009.
With her career poised as it is to move to an even more international level, it is inevitable that changes will take place. The Strong One, who has set up her own label, Freemind Music, The BES Records, is channeling free-spiritedness and female power as she seeks to establish herself. One important career decision has been to enlist the services of highly respected music mogul, Heavy D, as her co-manager.
“I am being managed by Freemind music, but we understand the need to partner with other entities and individuals as we seek to secure that winning team,” the conscious females singer and role model states. “We have been in dialogue with the best in the business and have assembled what we are confident is the right combination,” Etana declared.
Solid Agency, which has been directly involved in Etana’s career, will remain as the entity responsible for booking shows for the artiste. “We will continue to work with Solid in this regard,” she stated, adding that the company, Dancehallreggaeweseh, will co-ordinate all aspects of her public relations portfolio.
The singer, who will be going on a promotional tour of the United States and Europe in the summer, is now promoting her latest single, Free.

NO MORE 'ROMPIN' FOR SPICE


Since coming under fire from all sectors of society, including some of her very own dancehall colleagues, for the controversial sexually explicit ‘Rampin Shop’ single and music video done in collaboration with Vybz Kartel, DJ Spice has made a right-about turn and recorded a single titled ‘No Matter What’.

The single, which speaks of her early childhood and aspirations, is very clean and fit for airplay for audiences of all ages. More like a personal biography, Spice emotionally recalls the days while growing up how they were hard for her and other siblings.
She recalls how after her father died when she was 9 years old, leaving her and five other siblings, things were very rough for her mother who she used to struggle everyday to put food on the table.
Teary eyed in the video, the female DJ said that often she went to school without lunch money, feeling almost envious of the other children who had.
It was almost as if she was crying when she said that she came home from school one day and saw her mother with tears in her eyes because their house had burn down flat.
However, with all that was happening around her, she made a promise to herself that she was going to make it to the top, even though some people were trying to pull her back.
She singjayed, “No matter what people say, I’m gonna make it anyway.”
‘No Matter What’ was produced by Notnice for Addijaheim Records, the video was directed by Terminal and shot on location at Hellshire and Big Yard Studio.
The controversy surrounding the ‘Rampin’ Shop’ single and video seems to have done more good than harm for Spice and Kartel, as the single holds firm in the #1 position for the third consecutive week, spending its ninth week on the Hype TV chart.
After her devastating performance at the 10th anniversary of the New York/Miami Linkup Spring Break 2009 at Long Bay Beach in Negril on Friday, March 13, Spice left the island Thursday for Bronx, New York for gig tonight and in a couple of weeks she will be off to England on April 4, St Lucia, April 11 and then on May 16, Club Amazura in Queens New York.

Jah Cure shoots video for ‘Call On Me’



Over the weekend, Jah Cure and the Danger Zone Music team took to locations across Jamaica to shoot the music video for his soulful new single ‘Call On Me’ featuring the sexy Phyllisia.
Filming from late Friday evening into late Saturday night, the shoot was done in the beautiful town of Ocho Rios and Mammee Bay. Director Rhona Fox assisted by local and US based crew, including director and cameraman Asha, worked non-stop to capture the perfect footage for the video, the single for which is expected to be a major hit.
Several celebrities were on hand to lend support and add their flavour to the video, including singer Wayne Marshall, producer Baby G (who produced ‘Call On Me’), plus executives and staff of Danger Zone and SoBe, including the company’s CEO Delmar ‘Della’ Drummond. Several media outlets were also on location covering the shoot, including XtraNews.
Produced by SoBe Entertainment and Danger Zone Music Group, ‘Call On Me’ is from Jah Cure’s new album ‘Universal Cure’, which will be in stores in April.

MR GALLIMORE…FROM BROKENNESS TO VICTORY


Kemar Gallimore aka Mr Gallimore has steadily grown his ministry over the years with his trademark wailing sound wrapped over bass-rich rhythms.
His talent and powerful delivery of his message in songs is the staple of his identity as he manages amidst the ever-growing gospel music to carve out a solid base for his growing ministry. And with a new album, aptly title Brokenness to Victory now in the works, the young minister is charged more than ever to take his word across the highways and byways.
Having started his musical career as part of the popular Main Street Records family, Mr Gallimore is now a popular fixture on the gospel scene and have made several appearances at some of the top international and local productions such as Fun in the Son and the Genesis Music Festival in full agreement to his personal commitment to “reach the lost at any cost and to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ uncompromised.”
Born in 1981, Mr Gallimore is a true product of one of Jamaica’s harshest inner cities having grown up in the volatile, Trench Town community. As a youngster he was exposed to excessive politically induced violence, which invariably affected his childhood, giving him a sense of hopelessness and despair. Today, his life is a testimony of the power of his Saviour, and he aptly summarises his triumph over his circumstances as God’s gift to him of “beauty for ashes.”
His entrance in the gospel music industry was preceded by a powerful and life changing spiritual experience; his conversion from the Rastafari belief system to faith in Jesus Christ in 1997. His conversion was set in motion after reluctantly accepting an invitation to a Bible class in ‘Rema’ Community.
He was not fully convinced of the Gospel of Jesus Christ until one day while showering at home, he felt what he described as a “mighty, rushing wind” coming over him and he began uttering praises to God. A period of calm and a sense of inner peace followed. He submitted to the call of Jesus, which he felt strongly on his life. He began fellowshipping at a local (Jamaican) assembly and committed to a personal relationship with the Lord.
Deejaying then moved from being a hobby to a passionate career. His first major recording was with Ziggy Soul. Gallimore and reggae-gospel Deejay, Moses formed the KGs, a group name based on their initials (Kemar Gallimore/Kasim Grant). They eventually separated, each into their individual acts. Mr Gallimore responded to an also converted Danny Brownie’s (former secular producer) search for hardcore deejays.
After much grooming by the Mainstreet patriarch (Brownie), Gallimore was given the opportunity to ‘voice’ on the Yow! Street Gospel Volume I album. He appears on subsequent YOW volumes.
The firebrand minister is now signed to the ballooning P&W Music label and was featured on their recently released POP Volume One compilation. The Randy McClean - operated label is also responsible for the deejay’s Brokenness to Victory project, which is set to be completed in short order.
Among Mr Gallimore’s other recordings are Marching, What’s Going On, Tink seh Mi Sick, Brokeness to Victory, Prayer and Problem.

COVER VERSIONS


By: Maria A. Hitchins

What a way LUST catch a big come back, it seemed as if a lovers rock ‘do over’ was what the Dancehall public lacked.
“Just as I am” gave them a huge number one, and squarely placed the group back in demand, from Kingston to New York and across the pond to London.
But this ‘sing over’ production is nothing new, Ghost, George Nooks, and Wayne Wonder have all employed this musical method too.
Though there is always a question of legal rights and royalty, the Dancehall crowd cares not and show no loyalty, to those responsible for the songs’ originality.
Same knife stick sheep stick goat, some of our legendary artist can only screw face and bloat, as other artistes, management and dem crew have taken their lyrics and melodies too,
Perhaps that’s what Ghost should get back to, instead of clashing Kiprich in a losing battle. “The higher you build your barriers”, will forever be a part of his musical memoirs.
Choosing a hit song to re do, often times turns into a major career boost, so while we ‘LUST’ and yearn, perhaps there are lessons for other artistes to learn.

A bunch of super-sexy photos with a scantily-clad Lisa Hype posing in the arms of her mentor and boss Vybz Kartel has the Internet world in a tizzy. The photos which show a semi-nude Lisa Hype with Vybz Kartel's hands cupping her breasts have set tongues wagging all over Jamaica.

The provocative photos, which appear to be promoting the Wine for Me single from the Portmore Empire show Lisa Hype in a number of interesting poses. In one photo, he is standing behind her cupping both breasts while she looks doe-eyed at the camera. In one particularly erotic pose, she is seated in his lap and his hands cover her pubic area in a V, while she grabs her breasts and appears to be in the throes of some ecstatic sexual encounter. It is not quite clear whether she is wearing panties or not in the photos.
In yet another photo, she is seen pressing against his chest, while wearing his red-striped jacket.

Vegas Shoots 'Action-packed' I Am Blessed Video Shoot


Mr. Vegas completed the challenging shoot of his latest video, I Am Blessed, on Friday with a few scrapes and bruises, but none the worse from what insiders feel is his most 'action-packed' video to date.The video was shot for his popular single, which has been blowing up all over FM radio in Jamaica, and which is produced by Live Up on his Good Life rhythm.

“The concept of the video is that there is a greater power watching over me because each time mi come close to danger, mi find a way to escape. The video start out wid some man ah pree me, and it continues with a number of scenes where mi escape from danger each time the man dem approach me fi do mi harm. No matter the crosses, God help me overcome the obstacles.”

The video was directed by HYPE TV Video Director of the Year Jay Will who was at his fun-loving vivacious best on the shoot, hamming it up with the set-up men and joking with Vegas as he outlined what he wanted him to do.

There was also a church scene, and scenes were shot in Papine Square, Hermitage, Mona and other areas of the Corporate Area..

Other professionals on the shoot included caterer Julia Jones, make up specialist Cathy Stephenson of Wow Factor, and cinematographer Richard Lannaman of Paper Dragon Productions. Also, motivational dub poet Charlie Bobus played one of the thugs pursuing Vegas to do him harm during the course of the video. The video should be ready for release within the next two weeks.

Look out for upcoming Vegas singles such as the Lil Jon-produced So Dope featuring Indra from Barbados, and the one-drop single, Mama Don’t Cry.

AWARDS’ SHOWS A PLENTY

ETANA IN THE PHOTO


By: Maria A. Hitchins

Unnu no see awards shows seem to be taking Jamaica by storm, prompting many onlookers to ask, is wha deh gwaan?
It is the lastest craze with many being held within a few days, the many categories presents like a maze, figuring out just who would win left ones head in a daze.
Some in the industry have taken not being nominated to heart, and even start cuss pure claat, bout how some people reach in a category and dem is no popular or top ten smaddy?
Finally the aspiring ‘hollywoodites’ can legitimately skylark, red carpet and bare tings, false hair, fingers nails, tattoos and belly rings, mass a makeup, hair gel, pointed toe boot and pin strip jacket suit.
Some in the industry never looked so good, while others would have loved to loosen the fat holding girdles right where they stood, oh but if they could.
Mek I try list some of them, EME’s that a Richie B; CVM PEOPLES CHOICE you had to be a special invitee; JARIA, oh yes it was the Reggae Academy replacee, what a joke een, after last year dem try showoff pon we, anyway that, they whispered was for specific awardees; HYPE TV theirs was live across the Caribbean and had plenty a hiccups and a few mishap, bang-a-rangs, RE TV claims the first ever Caribbean music video awards show, while YOUTH VIEW AWARDS held a huge after-show.
Who even remembers the Jammy’s? Some say they were only following the Grammy’s, but soon enough it came to pass that artistes didn’t pay it no mine, thus through the years it quickly had lost its shine.
I can’t wait to see who next stands in line, eager to award a hook,, a verse, a chorus and all its rhymes!

CéCile’s ‘Waiting’ was worth it


By Thirteen
Save the hour I spent salivating over the CD cover photo of ‘Bad Gal’ CéCile for her best album to date ‘Waiting’, a photo that depicts her amazingly sexy, polished image, I did get to listen the album…and I loved it.
Dubbed with her bold funky ghetto love, ‘Waiting’ as title track, is the right tag owing to the popularity of the single last year. The single was all in your face and still triggers the missed rub-a-dubness of the 80s dancehall.
Incidentally, save for last on the track arrangement, the remix with Shaggy at track four of the 15-track CD is all up-tempo and hype. Though not all asset selling, being educated and all, ‘I’m So Fly’ featuring the Doctor Beenie Man, ‘Worth It’ and ‘Hot Like We’ put a high price tag on the browning from Manchester.
The gold digging ‘Worth It’ single, though, is leather interior e-class and CéCile cruised that Arabian snake charming riddim like she was born in it. It should be interesting to see how it does on the Billboard.
‘Ride or Die’, ‘Don’t Go’, ‘Kinda Lovin’ and ‘No Disturb Sign’ are overwhelming evidence that the world needs a reggae album soon from ‘Bad Gal’ offering variety like a spice rack. From the jamming head bobbing “gangster girl mi love the gangster guy”, or a Pam Hall sounding ‘No Disturb Sign’ to Cordel Scatta galloping produced ‘Goodie’, you all know what it is. “Her litty kitty kitty, that her vici secret can’t keep it”.
The combinations are hitting on ‘Waiting’ and CéCile shares the spotlight with just as popular in genres hip hop/R&B rapper Trina, a Danger Zone, Steelie & Cleevie production. Or with the street dance movement, Ding Dong in the “rushy” ‘Dance’. Then flipping the script again, you know how she gets, all toe stepping, like ‘Changez’, Scatta again with his jungle like produced ‘Talk Talk’.
CéCile is credited with writing and producing most of the tracks on the album, and she is proud of her long experience as a producer.
Released on the Danger Zone/SoBe Records label, ‘Waiting’ features production credits from renowned producers such as Kirkledove Bennett, Big Yard, Cordell 'Skatta' Burrell, Steelie & Cleevie, Lloyd ‘Baby G’ James, Scot Storch and several other top producers.
Distributed by Tad’s Records Inc and digitally by Zojak Worldwide, ‘Waiting’ remains a top seller since its release last year and one of iTunes international top reggae sellers, climbing the music store’s top 100 reggae charts.
The digital version of the album titled ‘Worth It’ moved up the US iTunes 100 Reggae charts. In fact, CéCile was the only female artiste on the chart out of 100, which is an amazing achievement. She also hit number 3 on the UK iTunes charts. While the ‘Waiting’ album is doing quite well in terms of sales and chart action in Jamaica, New York and South Florida.

Tony Rebel Another Bill Again makes a jump on the Hype TV chart.

It seems that nothing is able to stop Vybz Kartel’s & Spice’s Romping Shop as they continue hold onto the #1 spot on the chart. The track is spending its second week in this position. Hype TV Awards top awards winner Kartel, may have a lot to do with the single keeping its position.
Award winning gospel artiste Prodigal Son with Head Cyaan Hot So held onto the Shot To Watch title for another week. The single also grips the #2 spot for yet another week while spending its twelve weeks on the chart.
The Hype TV Music & Video Awards Civic Award winner Shaggy with Bad Man Don’t Cry jumps three places up to take over the #3 spot leaving the #5 position. The track has only been on the chart for seven weeks.
After a fabulous performance at Hype TV awards show, Barbee is able to Love You Anyway. The single is spending another week at #4 and has peaked at number two after fourteen weeks on the chart.
Smooth singing Da’Ville with Missing You Right Now has found himself in the top five spot on the chart to close off at #5.
Long reigning act Tony Rebel with Another Bill Again shoots four places up the chart to take hold of the Greatest Gainer title. The track had made its way in the #13 position leaving from #17.

WITHOUT THE DANCERS A WEH SOME ARTISTES WOULDA DO?



By:Maria A. Hitchins

Anybody ever stop to ponder, what some artistes would do without the street dancers upon whose creative imagination they continue to prosper,
Some people talk ‘straight’ and say categorically some artistes in fact a pilfer.
Dem just hang around the dancers and capture, the latest dance moves from the hottest dance crews.
Undoubtedly some of the dancers have no clue, as to the whole creative process its rewards and dues.
From Elephant Man, Beenie Man, Vegas, Matterhorn and even Buju Banton all have wracked up significant number ones.
Even the very title of their songs are named after street dance moves, one wonders is there no governing rules?
This unfair practice that is causing much blues, dancers cry foul short term they win, but long term only to lose.
Street dancers need to unite and perhaps begin to write, dem own songs and stories and stop mek some artistes take all the glories, man up, make noise and refuse the handouts, cause the artistes dem a bling, and some dancers can barely buy a ring.
Dancers information, education gives you real clout, what you don’t understand don’t be afraid, ask questions and go sort it out!

MR. VEGAS TO SHOOT I AM BLESSED VIDEO TODAY


Ever since his radio hit, I Am Blessed and Up Deh have started blowing up all over FM radio, many dancehall fans have been wondering out loud whether Mr. Vegas has converted to Christianity.

"No, I am not a Christian, but I have always been a child of God," the super-talented singjay who first came to attention with the provocative Nike Air hit song.

"As I have grown older, I have become more spiritual. I am now spending more time with my family and kids, and I have had a well-documented heart condition so all of those factors have combined to make me closer to my maker...I am in a good place right now."

Vegas flirted briefly with the idea of retirement last year, but has revamped his management structure and is ready to go at it again. He has hired a new manager, Khool head honcho Ray Alexander, while jettisoning Irish and Chin, his former managers.

"I am ready spiritually, emotionally and physically to go all out and do my best in 2009."

The deejay has enlisted the help of HYPE TV Director of the Year Jay Will to shoot the videos for I Am Blessed and Up Deh, gospel-flavoured dancehall songs that are sure to resonate with a Jamaican audience floundering in harsh economic times and surrounded by gun violence.

"These songs are supposed to give Jamaican people spiritual nourishment in these turbulent times," Mr. Vegas said.

Vegas has an uncanny knack of making hits. After jumping into the spotlight with Nike Air, his next single, "Heads High", had a successful chart run in the UK and a #69 peak on the Billboard R & B chart. In 1998, his debut album, Heads High, was released, which hit #5 on the US Reggae chart. Vegas won a MOBO for Best Reggae Artist for the Heads High album as well. 2000's single "Hot Gal Today" was a minor hit on the US R&B charts, peaking at #66.

In 2001, he issued Damn Right, featuring guest appearances from Shaggy and Big Yard. This album went to #2 on the US Reggae chart. 2004 saw the release of the Pull Up LP, and the title track scraped the bottom of the Billboard Top 200, peaking at #98 (as well as #68 on the R&B chart). In 2007, his Tek Weh Yuself song on the Dutch Pot riddim was named as one of the top 50 songs of the year by Vibe magazine.

But despite all his successes, Vegas has had many challenges in the industry including a falling out with Bounty Killer who attempted to slander his name. Even before he became famous, Vegas' jaw was shattered by a man wielding a crowbar during a scuffle over stolen master tapes. His jaw was wired shut for six weeks.

"I am a survivor, God Almighty has kept me and protected even when my enemies have surrounded me and were tearing at my flesh. I have always had the love and support of my family so I know I am unshakeable, Mr. Vegas is here to say in the dancehall business," he said.

Mr. Vegas has a number of performances booked for various countries in the Caribbean later this year.

D-Lynx comes fresh with the Diggy Dong


All-male trio D-Lynx brings a new kind of swagger and freshness to the dancehall that is connecting with the masses and having universal appeal. Wayne, Felch and Jermz, all signed to Big Yard records, have been doing their thing and doing it exceptionally well. So it should come as no surprise that these youngsters, mentored by none other than Big Yard’s head honchos, Robert Livingstone and Shaggy, have put out a music video that is getting rave reviews.
Called Diggi Dong, the video has made its way on all the major video charts locally — Hype TV, CVM and RE TV — a sure sign that it has found favour with the very discriminating public.
The song Diggi Dong, which has been receiving heavy rotation on radio, is an uptempo, dance song which is strategically poised as a possible breakout single. The success of the music video will undoubtedly boost the already popular song.
“As a group, we are positioned to appeal to our own age group and so this song and the accompanying video were produced with that in mind,” Felch says, adding that “D-Lynx doesn’t want to stay in the box. We are creative and since linking with Big Yard, we have found the right force to guide us and put our career on the pinnacle of success.”
D-Lynx is the fusion of three formally trained voices and the members of the group are Jermaine ‘Jermz’ Wright, Alwayne ‘Wayne’ Harrison, and Fabion ‘Felch’ Mclean.
Check out their video below.

Othniel ‘Taddy P’ Campbell has a passion for music


With a cool and easy tempered disposition, Othniel ‘Taddy P’ Campbell, who hails from Montego Bay is blessed with a musical gift. His early influences can be traced to the church and his alma mater, Herbert Morrison Comprehensive High School.
Taddy P’s first instrument was the trombone, which he played from 7th – 9thy grade in his high school band.
It was at age 13, that he discovered the bass guitar. His music teachers, Professor Grimes Snick Glenn and Carl Mathews, persuaded him to try out the bass instrument, right after the bass player from the school band graduated. Taddy P practiced tirelessly at home on a piece of board cut to the shape of a guitar, with fish line for strings, made by his father. Within a short space of time Taddy P attained sufficient competence to be the school bandís bassist.
Taddy P graduated High School in 1989 as an outstanding music student. He continued through with further studies in the Fundamentals of Music Theory at Royal School of Music in London, England and Sam Sharpe Teachers College in Montego Bay. Subsequently, he was a music teacher at Herbert Morrison Comprehensive, his former High School, where he taught Band Techniques, Music Theory and Conducting. It is not surprising that Taddy P became such a good bass player because he had excellent schooling. He attributes his success at mastering the
instrument to endless hours of practice and sheer hard work, honing a hard-driving, steady, well-rounded and infectious bass style.
Taddy P’s inspirations were Aston Barrett, Glenn Browne, Nathan East, Marcus Miller, Verdine White and Stanley Clark. Taddy Pís experience in Jazz, Popular and Reggae Music earned him a reputation that had several bands, both large and small, inviting him to be a part of their group. He performed in bands from 1991 through to 1996 on the North Coast in Jamaica, in hotels such as Seawind Beach Resort, Hedonism II, Wyndham Rosehall, Sandals Resorts and Swept Away Resort. These performances, set the stage, showcasing Taddy P’s talent that soon caught the eyes of various Jamaican Celebrity Entertainers / Artistes. Before long Taddy P was performing for Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Rita Marley, Tanya Stephens, Shabba
RanksYellow Man, Sanchez,Tessanne and Monifah in international arenas in Japan, Europe, Africa, the United States, Canada and various Caribbean Islands.
In 1997, the internationally known artist, Maxi Priest intrigued with Taddy P’s style, contracted him as his personal bass player and from there on their partnership continues until present. His current drive to produce music is indicative of his success as a professional bass player. Taddy P began experimenting with harmonies, melodies, rhythmic beats and booming bass lines that
have him working feverishly in studios producing new music for Maxi Priest, Big Mountain, Patra and upcoming artist Lady Love D. Wisdom. It is this kind of passion and total commitment to his craft that makes him stand apart.

By: Maria A. Hitchins

What a way everybody and dem crew, dis a register philanthropic foundations, yes is true.
The end of last year Shaggy did fi him ting massive and a few days latah, Toots followed through.
But since the beneficiaries are more than a few, wha mek some a dem did tek so long dem mussi bug-a-boo?
Still some people say they know others that give away all the time, but never seek a line inna di media.
I only hope that statement don’t mek dem shy away either, cause is well-needed funds, from which these institutions are able to run.
From Bustamante to Jubilee, oh yes baby mothers will be sure to sport a glee, hopefully all the big ‘don’ dem will start to pree, giving away more tings outside a dem community, as such institutions belong and benefit all a we.
So whether you give under the quiet or create a ‘Big Yard’ riot, mek sure this is not a fad, or your reputation may become a ‘had’, because Jamaicans especially love a ‘Santa’, be him a stranger, politician or ‘shotta’!
