"My man has no job for eleven years, I pay rent, light & water bills - need your advice"


Hi Mr. Proppafix

First, I must commend you on the good job you have been doing. I am 28 years old and have been with my children's father for almost eleven years now. Out of the years of togetherness, I am the one who has been working three quarter of the time and when I talk about it, he starts to flare up and behave as if he will hit me. We have bills to pay (rent, light & water bills) and I have to be standing everything. I tried to leave him more than once but we always end up back together.

He is in to inherit some money from family ties and he expect us to get married but I don't really want to stay with him because I think one day he will get really upset and might go as far as hurting me. He always mouths the children on every slip up and that is not right. I think that he can cut them some slack sometimes because no man is perfect. I am in a loop here so please I need your advice.

Sexy Diva

Usain Bolt in a car accident

By Associated Press

usain-bolt-crash-accident-car-bmw-jamaica.jpgKINGSTON, Jamaica - Olympic champion sprinter Usain Bolt crashed his car and was not seriously injured on Wednesday.

Bolt and an unnamed female passenger were taken to a hospital in Spanish Town but neither was seriously hurt, according to police Sgt. David Sheriff.

"(Bolt) is being treated now, but it's nothing serious and I cannot say anything more," a doctor at the Spanish Town hospital west of Kingston said.

Bolt was apparently speeding on a rain-slicked highway when he lost control of the BMW M3 and it went off the road, said Sheriff, the first officer to arrive at the scene in St. Catherine parish. He said the car was heavily damaged.

Bolt, 22, exploded as an international track star in 2008 when he broke the 100m world record at the Reebok Grand Prix in New York in May and then set world records in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay while winning gold medals in all three events at the Beijing Olympics in August.

The sports car Bolt was driving at the time of the accident was given to him by executives at Puma, his shoe and apparel sponsor, in recognition of his victories in Beijing.

Serani, Vegas and Soulja Boy rock DJ Prostyle's Birthday bash


The UCF Arena was almost packed to capacity on Monday night for the big event celebrating Heavyhitter DJ Prostyle's Birthday. It was a great night for Dancehall as the young and very mixed crowd was extremely receptive to both Serani and Vegas, the other artist repping Jamaica on the night.

"The hard work and promotion we are doing for ourselves and for the music is paying off," said a pleased Serani. "There were females of many different nations and colours singing along to my songs which is very encouraging."

Aside from headliner Soulja Boy, Serani and Vegas were the night's top performers in terms of crowd reaction. In a star-studded line-up that featured big names from Rap, R'n'B and Regageton, both artist's sets were greeted with screams and claps from start to finish, underlining the growing popularity for Dancehall music in the US.

Serani goes to Charlotte, South Carolina and Virginia this weekend for 3 shows before heading to the Uk next week for the Brighter Days Tour alongside Mavado and Bugle. "No Games" continues to get added to playlists across the US, with 92.3 WNOW in New York and 102 JAMZ in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Beenie Man shames Rihanna


According to a blogger on Beenie Man calling Rihanna on stage at Reggae on the Hill was unnecessary and seems to left the Diva feeling a bit embarrassing.

Below is the a report from

Cheeeeeese… on.

Rihanna is a bigger woman than me - and I don't mean just in the literal sense that she’s five foot nuff.

I would cuss two claat or several rholes at Beenie Man last night for what he did.

Hear de scene that went down last night in Barbados at Reggae on the Hill.

The show was great - Buju Banton, Queen Ifrica, Morgan Heritage and a whole host of other artists, with Beenie Man closing the all-day show.

Anyhow, for the whole day, Beenie breezing up in the Prime Minister’s VIP stand, drinking Hennesy straight from the bottle, bun'ing a lil weed, going down every now and then to hug up the crowd just on the outside of the stand and clearly fulljoying himself.

Towards the late afternoon, Rihanna, who has been in Barbados for the past week or so, came into the stand as well and was just chilling.

Anyhow, when Beenie touch the stage now at about 7:30 and gave a generally decent performance - certainly the crowd was with him.

Thennnn… he start calling for Rihanna to "report back stage immediately".

Tiana's Message for Chris Brown

Pen2Paper Creative Concept

Tiana-chris-brown-rihanna-jamaican-female.jpgMedia House Production recording artist Tiana is the latest addition to the growing number of budding female dancehall reggae artists. She embodies a seemingly shy yet confident persona. Tiana's first single, "I Won't", is produced by Media House Production and comes in the wake of events surrounding R&B's hit couple Rihanna and Chris Brown's domestic violence incident.

In the catchy tune, Tiana tackles the plight of domestic violence, citing the similar situations of other women. With her vocal ability, she aptly reminds us that violence against women is unconscionable and women have been afflicted for too long with domestic violence.

"I Won't" is not only her first single, but also her first attempt at recording in a professional studio. The track is receiving rave reviews from fans, with comments flooding her MySpace page as listeners react to the message of the song.

Ras Penco Hits #1 With New Single


ras-penco-reggae-artiste.jpgReggae artist Ras Penco scores his first number one hit in Jamaica with the romantic ballad, "Thousand Miles," a poignant promise mimicking his life as a traveling musician far and wide, who vows to never break his loyalty to his true love.

The Uprize Music artist humbly welcomes his very first berth at the top of the reggae singles chart (Jamaica Weekly Countdown). "It's a good feeling. I've been trying to get here for quite a while, about six years, and it took a lot of hard work."

"Thousand Miles" has been gaining momentum on the airwaves in Jamaica for over two months, as quality music recently garnered its fair share of airplay amidst a ban on "indecent" dancehall and soca music on the nation's airwaves. This made room for quality and positive music such as Ras Penco's, catapulting him into the limelight. The ensuing video lit up television sets and has also enjoyed rotation, much to the delight of reggae lovers. "I wrote it and from the moment I finished recording it in the studio, I knew it was a great song and that people would love it."

Dancehall star Vybz Kartel banned from Grenada

By Kon-Vick Writer

vybz-kartel-granada-ban-barred-concert.jpgOne of Dancehall's best lyricists Vybz Kartel has been banned from performing on Grenadian soil at a concert scheduled for Saturday (May 2, 2009).

Rumors have been circulating that the gay rights group might be the ones behind the ban but according to reports by the Associated Press, a government official from Grenada had issued a statement, which stated that a popular Jamaican rapper has been barred from the country due to his raunchy lyrics.

"Lyrics that seem to promote violence have raised concern and led the government to deny the rapper a performance permit," said Senator Ann Peters (Health Minister & Chairman of Grenada's National AIDS Council).

The promoter of the event titled "Rap-it-up" a concert to promote safe sex and the launching of Vybz Kartel's Daggering condom now seeks legal advice as he claims he spent a huge sum of money on the planning of the event.

Dog eats G-string, almost dies

dog-under-ware.jpgAn Australian dog owner almost lost her pet after he ate her size 10 G-string.

The Northern Territory resident, who was too embarrassed to be named, said she rushed her cavalier King Charles spaniel, Baxter, to the vet over Easter weekend after he refused to eat and started vomiting, according to The Northern Territory News.

An X-ray revealed the 2-year-old dog’s bowels were blocked, and he would be lucky to survive the night if veterinarians did not operate immediately.

During the 3 a.m. procedure, University Avenue Veterinary Hospital doctors in Palmerston untangled a black, lacey G-string with approximately 8 inches of elastic from Baxter’s intestines.

After the dog’s serious brush with death, his owner said she no longer will be leaving her underwear around for Baxter to access.

Lucky the G-string wasn’t a size 16.

Susan Boyle gets her makeover: Do you love it or hate it?

Don't recognize that stylish brunette?

susan-boyle-britains-got-talent-photos.jpgIt's none other than Susan Boyle - the breakout star of "Britain's Got Talent" who has been dubbed a "hairy angel" by the British press for her formerly frizzy and gray-streaked cloud of hair.

But she's grizzly no more!

The singing phenomenon was photographed Friday outside her home in Scotland with newly dyed hair in a more stylish cut and even some make-up to even out her ruddy skin tone.

She also had her eyebrows thinned and shaped in recent days and stepped out in chic high heels.

Friday, Boyle was again wearing her new fitted leather jacket - a huge leap from the dowdy mustard-hued lace dress she wore on her initial television appearance - and added flair with a Burberry-print scarf.

The producers at "Britain's Got Talent" are "frantic" over the changes, according to the British Daily Mail.

Breaking News: Troops end Jamaica airliner hostage siege


(CNN) -- Troops in Jamaica captured an armed man Monday who had barged onto a Canadian airliner, robbed passengers and held six crew members hostage, Jamaica Information Minister Daryl Vaz said.

The crew members were not harmed, Vaz said.

The hijacking suspect, described as a "mentally challenged" man in his 20s, had demanded that the Boeing 737 be flown to Cuba. The military captured him around 7 a.m. local time.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, meanwhile, told reporters that he planned to travel to Jamaica on Monday to meet with Prime Minister Bruce Golding. Harper has been following the airplane security breach and may meet with the plane's crew later today.

The CanJet flight from Halifax, Canada, had made a scheduled landing at Sangster International Airport in the Jamaican resort city of Montego Bay and was scheduled to continue to Santa Clara, Cuba.

Kanye West Unveils Sneakers, Amber Rose's Behind

kanye-west-louis-vuitton-sneakers-poster.jpgKanye West is revealing more than ever about his ladylove Amber Rose, but not with a blog entry or paparazzi rant.

West features the gorgeous blonde in the new national print campaign for his sneaker range, a collaboration with Louis Vuitton.

Shot by Steve Shaw, West's science fiction-inspired footwear is modeled by the rapper himself. His accessory? A nude Amber sprawled beside him on a leather couch.

In a clear case of "reverse cleavage," Ms. Rose gives the world a peak at what Kanye snuggles with on a nightly basis.

The pair will collaborate again in a music video for Kanye's forthcoming single, Robocop, where sources tell RadarOnline she'll look like "a Barbie doll come to life."

If she sticks with Kanye, we can certainly see a plastic replica in Amber West's future.

G Whizz - "Mi Life Soon Sort-out

By Pen2Paper
Creative Concept


'Life Soon Sort Out' by Famshouse recording artiste G Whizz speaks about the ghetto youths struggle in life and how they cope with it.
In the song he encourages the members of the ghetto to be strong and appreciate the life they have and live in a way that does not allow grudgefullness and hatred (Jamaican term "bad mind") while describing the hardships they face as simply just life. G Whizz starts out by introducing the song "A life TJ [[Referring to TJ records]] a just life."

The melodic rhythm provides a basis for the listener to hear and be entertained quite like in a sultry, almost acoustic template. The conscious lyrics help in sending across the point that although your situations are bad possibilities exist that they could be worst and it helps to be optimistic about their situation through perseverance towards achieving goals of success and treating everyone with respect and equality.

The song joins the league of the conscious vibe being adopted by many Reggae artists like Beres Hammond, Konshens and I-Octane among a few. The much needed song seeks to express the talent of the young singer who has been in the Business for a while. The rhythm, lyrics and voice greatly complement each other and have much to be admired.

G Whizz and his management team will be heading to Tivoli this weekend to shoot the video for this potentially hit single.

Lex Hype is ready to 'Trod It On'

By Krazy Katty Writer

lex-hype-vibez-camp-artiste-dancehall.jpgNew York based dancehall/reggae artiste Lex Hype has put aside his hardcore dancehall attitude to make way for his latest single title Trod It On. The positive message that the song signals were made possible by Lex Hype's management team Vibez Camp who produced the track.

The Dj begged for his people to unite and for the gangsters to put down the guns because too many mothers and fathers are living to see their children die before them.

Lex Hype also blames the governmental system for the rapid growth of poverty in the ghetto.

"Di system only set fi di needy, don't yuh be greedy people do yuh feel mi,

I've been doing this for a very longtime, why trying to take mine I’m just trying to shine,

life is worth more than silver and gold, but everyman want fi get rich before them turn old,

some man si di money and guh sell dem soul."

Fans can be on the lookout for a new video from Lex Hype this coming summer.

Macka's US$15,000 Couture dress now cost 1300

macka-diamond-fashion-red-carpet-us%2415000.jpgOn April 2, 2009, posted an article titled OutAroad Red Carpet with Macka Diamond in which she posed for the feature at the recently held EME Awards. Within that night, two reporters were present at the Awards who took photos along with the prices of several entertainers outfit to be featured on the OutAroad Red Carpet. However one of the members asked Macka Diamond what were her expenses like to be at the EMEs and she told the reporter that her Couture dress cost a total of US15,000, the reporter then asked if it's US or JA$15,000 and she quickly replied, "no man is US that, mi bought inna Atlanta" With that price, the reporter was expecting to hear some more ridiculous prices for her shoes and earrings but it seems as if she got them from a friend.

In an interview on another website, Macka Diamond told reporters that she had no idea how the reporter from got that pricing, as she cannot recalled talking to any reporter from However, in the story on the other website, she finally revealed how she got the dress saying her friend bought the dress for her, which couldn’t have cost any more than 1300. In the story she did not say if it's US$1300 or JA$1300 so at the end of the day it's still not clear as to how much money were spent for her Couture dress - I guess the other website made an error too.

Was this a publicity stunt by Macka Diamond that went “six feet under”?

Why didn't Macka Diamond asks OutAroad to take down the feature?

Why Macka went to another website to clear the air - is it because she didn't want everyone to know the truth about her dress?

Why didn't Macka Diamond mention anything to the OutAroad CEO while he was talking to her on Gmail-Chat about submitting her baby photos for the new feature called ‘When I Was Child’.

Who is telling the truth Macka Diamond or the OutAroad reporters?

Jamie Foxx Slams Miley Cyrus: "Make a Sex Tape...Do Some Heroin"


jamie-fox-show-photos-tv.jpgIt's probably safe to say there are no Kids' Choice Awards in Jamie Foxx's immediate future.

After taking a call on his Sirius satellite radio show The Foxxhole Sunday, the Oscar winner and his zoo crew lashed out at tween dream and reigning box-office champ Miley Cyrus, referring to the 16-year-old as a "little white bitch" and advising her to alternately "do some heroin" and "make a sex tape and grow up."

The 41-year-old's foul outburst was prompted by a caller to the show who brought up a month-old story in which Cyrus pledged to "ruin" Radiohead after the rockers rejected a request to meet with the Disney star backstage at the Grammys.

"Who is Miley Cyrus?" an incredulous Foxx, who has a teenage daughter of his own, said. "The one with all the gums? She gotta get a gum transplant...S--t."

By Pen2Paper
Creative Concept

ishawna_hypnotize_alliance_dress_artiste_female.jpgThe beautiful, sexy and equally talented new artiste I-Shawna, out of Kingston, Jamaica displays vocal skills similar to that of R&B icons such as Amarie, Maya and the late Aliyah. "Hypnotize" is the follow up to her scorching collaboration, - "Cheat Pon Mi Man Fi You" ft. Demarco. The talented lady seeks to mark her existence, not only as an artiste, who is talented, but as an entrepreneur, as the single was recorded by her, on her own label "Ishawna Music".

The song seeks, to entrance its target audience, into a sexy sultry vibes, while I-Shawna's lyrical accents seeks to entrench, a feeling of sultry, relaxing yet highly groovy track. She admonishes, her captive male character, as she "pop it, drop it, twist it, and lock it" while she say "ooooo"- denoting pleasure and enjoyment. She amicably describes, her feminine charms - her "thighs, brown eyes and smooth skin got him hypnotized, and begging for mercy". It takes a very confident woman to issue, such words of confidence, but for I-Shawna, confidence comes with abilities.

Her abilities, with regards to her talent are impeccable, as her vocals, lyrics and style are refreshing and new, she touches and can possibly reach a market which local stars like Tami Chin and Brick & Lace are taping into, "Hypnotized" is a simple yet relatable track, which both genders can related to, and therefore is hoped to see it's way onto countless airwaves across all boarders.

Jamaican Designer Carlton Brown Fall 2009 at LG Fashion Week (Or, Hot Men in Suits)

Posted by Anita
All photos by Perry Ge

Carlton Brown brought his award winning Jamaican swagger to LG Fashion Week. He's one of the Caribbean's biggest designers and this was his North American debut. It was a really fun show and a crowd-pleaser. Did I mention that Carlton Brown does menswear? That would explain the reaction: hot men in cool clothing.

The soundtrack got people started. Some well know reggae tunes belted out that got many dancing in their seats. I was definitely one of them wanting to get up and bust out some winding on the runway. I was even dared to do it. There was so much positive energy in the crowd you couldn't help but smile and get into it.

Of course many women and gay men in the audience were drooling over the models. There was a collective yell when one model strutted out topless. After the fact I was reading Derick Chetty's tweets about the show and he mentioned a woman that had gotten on the ground to take pictures when the topless model came out. She was singing along too. I wish I got to see that.

The clothing wasn't your typical North American suits; it definitely had an island flavour with the bright colour combinations. More men should wear purple. One model walked down the runway with a veil over his head. After seeing this done to women so many times before in shows (Hello Margiela) I was glad to see the tables turned. There were a lot of three piece suits and some casual wear. There were one sided and bolero style jackets that were fashion forward but a little gimmicky. I also felt the pant lengths were a little on the short side.

Dancehall Artiste Sizzla Apologizes

sizzla.jpgSizzla Kalonji and the Fire House Band would like to apologize to the fans in Canada for the show cancellation at Paramount Concert Theatre. Although there are numerous allegations as to why the show was cancelled, the reason was time inefficiency and late entry of the paperwork to the Canadian Embassy in Jamaica. Sizzla was approved by authorities in Canada to perform.

There was no involvement of any form of contract or agreement to determine the acquisition of the visa in Kingston. At this point in Sizzla’s career, he is moving forward with total positivity, unity, and urges all to stop the violence. Under the circumstance, we insure that Canadian fans will get to see Sizzla perform in the near future.

Sugar Bear Rocks Japan


New York based dancehall artist Sugar Bear and The Big Bad Mighty Young Hawk from New York have recently returned home fresh from two incredible and memorable performances in Okinawa, Japan. The talented Dj 'tore down the house' at two separate venues to the delight of sold out crowds consisting of his growing Japanese fan base and U.S. soldiers of Caribbean origins(from a nearby U.S. military installation).

Sugar Bear's songs 'Roll It Up', 'Powers', 'Hot Girls', 'Ride Ei Good' and 'Jamaica Mi Born' that led him into an 'on the spot' freestyle - 'Japan Mi Born' which had the crowd in a mad frenzy. His overall performance went very well among the culturally diverse crowd, further showcasing his ability to reach the masses with his music.

Sugar Bear was humbled by the warm response he received in Japan and negotiations are already being undertaken by Jamone Entertainment to have him return to Okinawa along with Young Hawk and also the possibility of exploring new venues in Fukuoka.

What's Next For Chris Brown After Not-Guilty Plea?

By Gil Kaufman with Jayson Rodriguez
Source: MTV


Now that Chris Brown has entered a not-guilty plea to felony charges of assault and making criminal threats, what's next for the 19-year-old singer?

Brown, who appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday to enter the plea in the case stemming from an alleged February 8 assault on girlfriend Rihanna, must now either face a trial in the case or cut a plea deal that would spare him from the maximum penalty in the case, four years and eight months in a federal prison.

Rihanna's attorney, Donald Etra, told reporters after the hearing on Monday that his client is hopeful that a plea deal can be worked out so that the case could be quickly resolved, according to a RReuters report. But he reiterated that if ordered to testify against Brown she would do so. Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, has not returned multiple calls from MTV News requesting comment on the case and he did not speak to reporters after Monday's hearing.

Judge Patricia Schnegg set an April 29 status hearing for Brown and his attorneys, at which time a preliminary hearing could be scheduled. The prosecutor in the case will present the state's evidence at the preliminary hearing and Brown's attorneys will have a chance to examine the evidence and make motions and cross-examine the witnesses. At the end of that hearing, the judge typically determines if there is sufficient evidence to move the case to trial.

As long as "She's Happy" - Konshens & Delus

By Pen2Paper Writer

delus-konshens-she-happy-song-photos.jpgOne's success and achievement is often measured by the actions in their lifetime, for the musical duo of Konshens & Delus, the success depends heavily on the happiness of their family especially their daughters. As such their newest song is so dedicated - 'She's Happy', produced by Frank ENT.

The lyrical content heavily speaks to the desire of the two artists, needed to cater to the needs of their daughters - "When things aren't going my way, an is like mi caan even see a brighter day, and when mi life start get so hard, mi afi kneel down and pray to the lord. An when pressure start bubble pon mi, and trouble start rise pon the double pon mi- Almighty father, u see mi little daughter, As Long As She's Happy".

The verses are interchangeable between both artistes expressing their hopes, that their daughters - Sahji and Karrisa, whom both artistes express, repeated never want to hear cry and ensure they are never hungry. They stress that they no longer care about their own well being, or "hunt" for them selves, but the needs of their children, in a bid to provide for them the finer things in life.

Statement on Assassin's Red Stripe Live Abruptly Ended Performance

assassin_girls_male_boy_dancehall_photos.jpgKingston, Jamaica: -- The Jamaica Reggae Industry Association (JARIA) notes with concern that the performance of Jeffery "Assassin" Campbell was abruptly discontinued at the recently held 'Red Stripe Live' concert, due to a misunderstanding on the part of the promoters. We wish to express dissatisfaction with respect to the artiste's performance being prematurely terminated as a result of a perceived violation of the rules of engagement by Red Stripe.

Red Stripe has since apologized for their action. JARIA notes however, the apology did not clearly indicate that Mr. Campbell in fact lived up to his contractual obligations, including his participation in two Red Stripe Representative supervised rehearsals. While the apology is a step in the right direction, enough has neither been said nor done in an attempt to repair any damage which may have been done to the artiste's reputation. We wish to recommend that if Red Stripe, or any other sponsor, has concerns about the lyrical content of an impending performance (following observations of the rehearsals), that it should communicate such reservations to the artiste immediately and unequivocally.

Alley Cat drops new album Dancehall Knowledge Volume 1

alley-cat-album-party.jpgAlley Cat the Imperial has dropped his new album Dancehall Knowledge Volume 1 which is set to take the world by storm. The album shows the growth, maturity that he has experienced as an artiste from his ‘break through' days in the 1990s with hit songs such as Girls Tour and Hot Gal.

Dancehall Knowledge Volume 1 was produced by Alley Cat himself, on his Imperial Production label. It consists of 17 tracks including powerful songs such as 'Mr. Reality', 'I Am The Best', 'The World Keeps Turning' which features Florida based R&B singer Tenor Blue, the very spiritual 'Burning Prayer' which starts the album. It also has soul stirring song 'All My Life' featuring Fiona which addresses the hardship faced by the less fortunate and the corruption happening in the society. He sings praises to the 'mother land' Africa with the song Mamma Africa.

In describing the album he said, "It is positive, political, rebellious, uplifting. It deals with a lot of social issues. The songs are lasting they will not come and just die out."

T.I. Says He Turned To Crime As A Teen For 'Independence'

ti-quest.jpgT.I. 's 2007 arrest for attempting to buy illegal firearms led many observers to believe the rapper's career was finished and he'd be spending a long stretch in prison. The rapper had previously done jail stints for drug-related offenses.

So how did an exemplary student, as Tip said he was, turn to a fast life of crime?

"I think for me, it was independence. It was about independence. It was about being a provider. It was me and my mom at that point, and from what I saw of my uncles and what I saw of my pops, they were providers," T.I. told MTV News on Saturday during his interview that will air Tuesday night (March 31) on MTV's "Road to Redemption: The Reckoning." "They provided for their family and other people's families. They were the ones that other people came to when they didn't know what they were going to do and how they were going to do it. Where there was no way, my uncles and my pops made a way, and that's what I saw."

For Tip, he said those figures became his examples. By the time he hit his teens, he moved to place himself in that provider position. He'd receive final-notice bills from his mother, and he said it was then his responsibility to make sure their lives remained steady. So he turned to selling crack.

The rapper said he masked his illegal activity with a more modest, innocent front: selling candy.

"My mom never knew how I was getting it done, she just knew I was getting it done," Tip recalled. "I had a few fronts too, man. I used to sell candy. I used to go to the warehouse and buy a bunch of candy, get a book bag full of candy, and off it. I pretended to my mom for a long time that that's how I was getting the money."
