FLIPPA MAFIA AMONG ACTS TO SHARE STAGE WITH SOULJA BOY, SUNDAY OCT. 18TH
King of Flossing, Flippa Mafia, will on Sunday have one of the biggest performances of his career when he joins rap star and Grammy nominee Soulja Boy, along with a host of local stars on stage at the fifth staging of Barefoot Beach Party in Montego Bay.
The deejay is looking forward to the event and, as usual, is committed to entertaining his fans.
“Music Business is all about entertainment and making patrons feel like they have spent their hard-earned money well. Flippa Mafia is the Flossing King and fans can expect lots of fun and excitement,” he promised.
Interestingly, this is the first time that the artiste will be meeting new-found rival Elephant Man – with whom he has been having a feud of sorts – on stage. Elephant had been advertised for Flippa’s show in Philadelphia last month, but reports are that Ele sent back the money and did not show up. Prior to that, however, there had been two songs in which the artistes had lyrically dissed each other.
The deejays are now caught up in the exchange of barbs and have released songs back and forth dissing each other, each time with greater intensity.
Flippa, known as the King of Flossing, has long maintained that his intense war of words with Ele is just musical and nothing else. “It’s just pure fun … there is no bad vibes. It’s a lyrical thing that will remain on the stage and on record,” he insists.
Meanwhile, Flippa, 'Mr Dem Yah and Dem Yah', has been busy building his repertoire and for him, Sunday night's show will be one of great vibes, intense flossing and he promises fans a performance worthy of a king.
Other acts on the show include Beenie Man, Lady Saw, Bounty, Mavado and Vybz Kartel and the Portmore Empire.
Meanwhile, the organisers, Flettes Promotions, have insisted that there will be no clashing at the event. They noted that despite the rivalry which exists between some of the acts all attempts have been made to prevent the various camps from confronting each other.
It was stated that the artistes’ performances have been strategically scheduled to avoid clashes.
Music for the day and night show will be provided by Tony Matterhorn, Sky Juice, Crazy Neil, Insomniak, Classique, Classique, Black Blunt, Hype Zone and DJ Skinny.
