"How Vybz Kartel Fi Diss Beenie Man? - BB Rumor

vybz_kartel_barbados.jpgBy Kon-Vick Writer has received numerous phone calls and BB messages requesting to know the truth behind the BB message that was allegedly sent out by dancehall trend setter Vybz Kartel.

The BB message describes Zj Liquid as a wanna be artiste who copied Vybz Kartel slang ('Oh'). The BB message also lashes out against Beenie Man as well for repeatedly using Vybz Kartel styles.

However, many refused to believe the BB rumor so the next step was to get in contact with the Gaza General.

" Are u serious? how Kartel fi dis Beenie Man? People believe what they want and quite frankly, separate and apart from my gaza fans whom I love dearly, I couldn't care less what people think. Gaza me name. Beenie say gaza and liquid say music. A love inna dancehall so naysayers know what to do."

Apart from the rumor gets to understand that Vybz Kartel's re-make of the Beatle's 1970 Hit classic Let It Be is one the many featured songs today on the Homepage of iTunes Music Store (US).

Is Kanye West's 'Runaway Love' Remix The 'Future Of Hip-Hop'?

by MTV News


Kanye West's remix of Justin Bieber's "Runaway Love" hit the Internet yesterday, and the track -- which also features Wu-Tang Clan's Raekwon The Chef -- drew a wealth of reaction.

The song lifts much its rhythm and main melody from Wu-Tang Clan' "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing Ta F*** Wit," with additional production on Bieber's vocals.

"Flipping an old Wu beat was a smart move," says Complex Deputy Editor Brendan Frederick. "It automatically gives you that nostalgic feeling, an old trick from the Bad Boy era that still works. Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing Ta F*** Wit" was always a fun record, and it translates perfectly to a light-hearted remix like this."

"Kanye is clearly a Wu-Tang fan," says Rob Markman, Deputy Editor at XXL. "Even when he was doing sped-up soul samples you could see Rza's influence in 'Ye's production. Kanye is capable of making an original beat and he was just paying homage to the Wu."

Still, the remix has its critics. Some feel that just because artists can collaborate, doesn't mean they always should.

"Reinvigorated Raekwon has obviously been a good thing for his opportunities and great for hip-hop," says's Gotty.

"However, there should be someone standing nearby reminding him of how a collabo like this one may come off as trite. Just because high profiles are involved it doesn't necessarily mean it will yield good results, especially not when your calling card has been gritty talk your whole career."

Dallas Penn, of The Internets Celebrities, thinks otherwise. "Raekwon's verses are hard and on time," he says. "The references are razor sharp. This isn't from a throwaway notebook."

Junior%20X%20tour.jpgWith his debut album set to be released in early October, reggae artiste Junior is very happy having finally completed a full length recording project, as many fans have been requesting an album from him since his debut in 2005.

"Yes I'm excited. The album has songs for the ladies and of course the Almighty comes first in everything so we have to make mention and praise him. We also have songs that speak about the struggles of the people in ghetto because that's where it all started, said Junior X"

The Plead My Cause lyricist also spoke of his desire to gain local dominance after being noticeable absent from the music scene for a while until last year.
"That's how (being absent) it seems but it's not the reality. I never stopped doing music, it's my life. This game is full of politics with people who want to push you around," he said.

Busy Signal Hoping Whole World Answers His Dancehall Call

busy-signal-news.jpgMost dancehall artists' careers have crashed and burned on American shores. From Yellowman to Shabba Ranks to Buju Banton, some of Jamaica's most definitive vocalists couldn't break through to a larger audience due to unwise collaborations, questionable judgments and bad advice.

Busy Signal, who boasts a collab with M.I.A. on the new Major Lazer EP, is determined not to follow that path.

"I've learned from their mistakes, " the man born Reanno Gordon tells Spinner. "I try to think outside the box, beyond Jamaica. I mean, we sing gun lyrics here, and burn fire on this and burn fire on that, but that won't bring you to the level that you need to go. I've seen this over and over again with artists from Jamaica. You sing those songs locally, people go crazy, but at the end of the day that won't bring you to the wide level of exposure cause you're probably lashing out against those that would be accepting you."

Busy has managed to create huge domestic hits while pursuing hybrid rhythms and cool foreign collaborations. Nothing in his rapidly growing catalog sounds like the watered-down crossovers of years past, which saw hard-as-nails dancehall artists recording urban radio-baiting slow jams.

His new album 'D.O.B.' (which stands for "Difference of Busy" may contain covers of Phil Collins' 'One More Night' and a one-drop revision of the Commodores' 'Night Shift,' but both versions cut deep and don't feel like blatant sellouts.

Why Chris Brown Won't Tour With Usher

By PopEater

chris-brown-usher-tour-no.jpgAfter July's well-received joint appearance onstage in Jamaica, and an enthusiastic remark that producer Bryan-Michael Cox made in an interview with Jermaine Dupri ("Usher and the boy Chris Brown are going on tour, y'all know that, right?"), fans expected a major concert collaboration to be announced.

On Tuesday's broadcast of BET's '106th and Park,' however, Chris Brown dismissed the rumor while plugging his film 'Takers,' saying he wanted to focus on solo efforts. Many questioned the explanation, and speculated that Usher -- whose reps have issued a statement denying a tour partnership -- wants to distance himself Brown, still struggling to repair his image after his notorious 2009 arrest for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna.

But now, a source is telling the New York Post that there's a much simpler reason: money.

Paris Hilton arrested on cocaine charge

by Chad Schlegel

Paris-hilton-cocaine%20.jpgParis Hilton was released from a Las Vegas jail this morning after being arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession late Friday night, CNN is reporting.

According to a police spokesman, the socialite-heiress was a passenger in a vehicle that was observed trailing marijuana smoke. After searching the vehicle, police discovered an unspecified amount of what was later identified as cocaine. The driver of the vehicle, whose name was not released, was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. Hilton was released on her own recognizance.

This is Hilton’s third drug-related arrest in recent memory. In July, while attending a World Cup match in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, Hilton was removed from the stadium by local police and arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession. The charges were dropped. Later that month, Hilton was detained by police at an airport in Corsica, France, after she was caught with a small amount of marijuana. No charges were filed in the incident.

Attempts to reach the Las Vegas police department and Hilton’s publicist and manager were unsuccessful.

Tina Jordan contributed to this report.

Timbaland: 'Why Would I Commit Suicide?'

By Carlos Greer

Don't worry about Timbaland - he never tried to take his own life.

timabaland-life-sucide.jpg"I don't even know what happened, to be honest," the rapper-producer (real name: Timothy Mosley) told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Wednesday, after reports that he tried to commit suicide surfaced online. "I don't know what people are talking about. Why would I commit suicide?"

Earlier Wednesday, news broke that Timbaland, 39, fled his house and wanted to harm himself after someone reportedly stole a $2 million watch from his collection.

"Something did happen," he told Seacrest, confirming that he was robbed. "It wasn't a watch [that was stolen]. It was something else." And, Timbaland says, he "took a drive to figure out how I'm going to handle it," while somebody close to him reportedly called the authorities, concerned about his well-being.

Yendi Phillips creates history for Jamaica

Posted by Goher Iqbal Punn


Yendi Phillips, Miss Jamaica hogged the limelight instantly after the Miss Universe 2010 beauty pageant held in Las Vegas. This is not because she won the mammoth crown of Miss Universe 2010 rather it is because of her getting the second position at the contest.

Well, Miss Mexico, Jimena Navarrete has won the diamond crown and been named the world’s most beautiful and sexy woman.

Yendi Phillipps has created the history by being the first runner-up at the pageant and getting the highest ever finish by a Jamaican in Miss Universe contest.

Initially when she was roped into the final 15, it was a historic feat nonetheless then she landed on to final 10, it was a cheerful experience and finally she was placed among the top 5, it delighted the Jamaican nation.

And when Yendi Phillipps was announced the first runner-up of the Miss Universe 2010 contest, the nation simply danced to the beats by tapping the feet.
Although she was very near to win, the Jamaicans are considering it the victory as it is the first time, any Jamaican could make to the final five.

It is a fact that if for any reason, Miss Universe (Miss Mexico) cannot continue or make it as a Miss Universe during her tenure, it would obviously be Yendi Phillipps as the Miss Universe 2010 as per her replacement.

Anyway Yendi, it is undoubtedly a big success by beating the horde of world’s top most beauties in the pageant

A house version was produced by DJ Josh from Bulgaria.

In a release to the media, Cezar explained the story behind the she Said. 'She Said really came out of the track itself. I received the track from a friend and producer and after listening to it for a short while, the idea for a melody popped into my head using a repetitive 'she said' line. After that I drew on conversations I had with friends or overheard about the things that women say and feel about relationships'.

Fantasia talks to ABC about attempted suicide: 'I just wanted out'

by Archana Ram

Fantasia-talks.jpgFantasia Barrino appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America today for her first interview following her Aug. 9 suicide attempt, when she overdosed on aspirin and sleeping aids. The American Idol winner bears all in the interview, confessing that "was tired of people doing [her] wrong constantly," referring to the barrage of negative press recently thrown at her personal and professional lives.

In the interview, a tearful Barrino admits that she suffers from trust issues and loneliness, and goes on to discuss the toll the alleged affair she had with Antwaun Cook - a married North Carolina man - had on her. Check out the interview: CLICK HERE

In the vast spectrum of celebrity sit-downs, this one seems different. The singer's willingness to discuss her mistakes and personal demons is refreshing - especially when you consider other celeb sit-downs - but what do you think about the interview? Does Fantasia earn your respect? Does it make you more inclined to watch her VH1 special?

D-Major - Obsessed By Musical Sounds - (Party Like It's Birthday)

d-major-scikron.jpgDamian Codlin 'aka' D-Major has been obsessed by musical sounds since birth. The term D-Major, comes from the musical key of "D", which is a major scale based on the note "D" and is a key signature consisting of two sharps. D-Major was used by many classical composers, by individuals such as Mozart, as the Key is regarded as "the key of glory" and is often "represented in gold". His first endeavor in the field of music was a member of a quintet called Q-T (Quality and Togetherness), however Damian didn't choose his name because of all the accolades, but the name came shortly after his split with Q-T. It was at the practice for performance, that a member of the band, inquired what note the song was in, and a member replied "D-MAJOR", seeing that his name is Damian, he adopted the D and added Major, hence D-Major.

He cites his musical influences from icons such as: Sam Cooke, Beres Hammond, Stevie Wonder and R-Kelly, all whom have produced a passion that has driven him to pursue music as his lifestyle. This was satisfying and again his thirst drove him to want more. He recorded singles such as 'People make the world go round,' Among the angels,' 'Sunshine,' and 'Won't Separate.'

Wyclef Jean aware of assassination threat

By Daniel Sperling, Entertainment Reporter


Wyclef Jean has admitted that he risks being assassinated while campaigning in the slums of Haiti to become president of the country.

The musician, who claims that he was inspired to run for office after witnessing the devastating effects of the January earthquake in his native country, confessed that he will fear for his safety when he eventually goes on the campaign trail as Haiti has a history of political violence.

However, the former Fugees star argued that his ideals and aspirations are worth endangering his life for.

"You have two choices," he explained to Contact Music. "Either sit back thinking of the danger or do something to move your country forward.

"Assassination is always a possibility but I'd rather die trying to achieve something than die doing nothing... I'm telling you right now, brother, I'm going to fight for the rights of the Haitian people so they can get their justice.

"At times, to be honest, I think, 'What am I doing?' But I can hear the voice of youth drafting me. When I'm on the ground, they say to me, 'Clef, you're our last hope.' They feel close to me because I speak their language."

Jean's controversial presidential campaign has already received criticism in the last week from Hollywood star Sean Penn and fellow Fugees member Pras Michel.

Popcaan walks free - Bahamas

popcaan-freed.jpgPopcaan one of the three Gaza members who reportedly attacked a Bahamian Pilot was acquitted of all charges after he pleaded not guilty...the other two Gaza members are still in police custody.

According to Bahamian news website the three Jamaican reggae artists who are accused of attacking a Bahamian pilot on Monday at the Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) were arraigned in a magistrates’ court on Wednesday (August 18, 2010)........... The men were here in New Providence to entertain hundreds of reggae fans at a birthday bash at the Luna night club this past weekend.

But that experience ended on a sour note when the men who are members of popular reggae artist Vybz Kartel’s entourage found themselves behind bars.

Twenty-four-year-old Ainsley Morris, 22-year-old André Sutherland and 26-year-old Lenburgh McDonald all of St Catherine Jamaica appeared before Magistrate Ancella Evans-Williams in court number six to answer to the charges of causing grievous harm and damage.

The trio is accused of attacking Bahamian pilot Tameko Bannister at LPIA.

It is alleged that the men got into a “brawl” with the Spirit Airline pilot after he asked why there were women in the men’s restroom with them.

The pilot reportedly left the restroom after a member of the group started to shout obscenities at him.

The pilot reportedly told police that when he returned to use the bathroom another time one of the women who is a part of the group was hit by the bathroom door.

It was at that point Bannister said one of the group members slapped him in the face and punched in his left eye.

He said the brawl ended in the lounge of the departure terminal alarming hundreds of passengers.

Eminem Back On Top Of Billboard Chart With Recovery

By Gil Kaufman

Eminem-sales-rapper.jpgEminem might lend you the crown for a week, but this summer's chart king is not ready to abdicate his throne just yet. A week after falling back to #2, Slim Shady's Recovery will be back on top of the Billboard 200 albums charts next week thanks to sales of 133,000, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.

That means that not only did Em cross the 2.1 million mark in just eight weeks, but he pushes back last week's #1, Arcade Fire's The Suburbs, to #2, as the Canadian indie rockers saw a steep (66 percent) decline on sales of 52,000. Among the newcomers in the top 10 are the Camp Rock 2 soundtrack (#3, 41,000) and the latest from Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society, Order of the Black (#4, 33,000); country singer Blake Shelton with All About Tonight (#6, 33,000); and college crooner Mike Posner, whose major label debut, 31 Minutes to Takeoff, lands at #8 on sales of 29,000.

The rest of the top 10: Justin Bieber, My World 2.0 (#5, 33,000); Rick Ross, Teflon Don (#7, 30,000); Kidz Bop 18 (#9, 27,000); and Avenged Sevenfold, Nightmare (#10, 27,000).

Though he fell out of the top 10 to #11, Drake's Thank Me Later racked up another 24,000 in sales, pushing the rapper to the cusp of platinum status. Lady Gaga's The Fame continues to move units (#13, 21,000) nearly two years after its release, but her The Remix album had a swift fall from the top 10, dropping from a #6 debut to #16 in week two as sales fell 58 percent to 17,000.

Busy Signal Breaks new Ground with Suavemente!

busy-signal-live.jpgBusy Signal is one of the best Dancehall artists whose versatility has made him one of the most sought after artists. Whether implementing the soulful importance of the Commodores "Night Shift" on his song of the same name, or his lyrical versatility connecting with fans young or mature such his mastery with Reggae Queen, and member of the I-Three’s, Marcia Griffiths on the song "Automatic," Busy Signal knows what buttons to push, and where.

His third album for the VP Records imprint, D.O.B, gives listeners Busy's extended versatility, and also sees the young star break new ground with a Latin audience by teaming with Elvis Crespo for the chune "Suavemente", Busy’s second release following "Sum'n Ah Gwaan" featuring Bounty Killer.

Based off of Crespo's 1998 hit record "Suavemente" Busy introduces authentic Dancehall to a new Latin audience by performing lyrics over the fast paced backdrop of trumpets, a salsa drum beat and piano proving that there is no genre of music the award winner can't add 'busy' flavor to. A recording like this has not been done by a Dancehall DJ from Jamaica in recent memory, especially with an artist of Crespo's caliber being a Grammy award winning, platinum selling artist with this single.

Major & Minor Riddims Available On iTunes In August

major-minor-video-sean-paul.jpgKINGSTON, JAMAICA - When Don Corleon Records released the Major Riddim in June of this year, the common misconception was that it was called 'Major & Minor.' In fact, the Minor Riddim is a totally separate creation that is yet to be officially released. To fans' delight, both productions will be available on iTunes later this month in the form of a double disc compilation.

"People assumed that they were the same riddim but they are definitely two different riddims," said Donovan 'Don Corleon' Bennett. "One was produced with major chords and the other with minor chords. That is how they got their names."

A "chord" is a familiar term for students of music. It describes when different notes are sounded at the same time, producing a certain harmonic quality; and "quality" is an appropriate descriptor for the tracks that appear on these sibling beats.

Prison Interview: Lil' Wayne on New Album, Eminem

By Avery Spofford
Source: spin

Lindsay Lohan and Snooki may be roaming free once again, but another celebrity, rapper Lil' Wayne, is still behind bars. However, that isn't stopping him from giving interviews!

The New Orleans native -- who has 93 days left on his bid at New York's Rikers Island for gun charges -- called into the Big Apple's Hot 97 radio station to chat with host Funk Master Flex about an array of topics, including how he's spending his time in jail, his pals Eminem and Drake, and his next full-length album, Carter IV.

But why call? "I don't have nothing else to do but talk to you," Weezy joked.
lil-wayne-jail-songs.jpgThe rapper told Flex that he has spent his days reading letters from fans, and expressed gratitude for their support: "It's been more than amazing. I promise that I can't explain the love and support I've been getting from my fans. It's breathtaking." Weezy added that he listens to a lot of sports radio. "All I listen to all day, if I am listening to anything, is sports … I've never listened to anyone else's music but my own, and since I'm not able to do that up in here, I don't listen to anything. I don't listen to nothing but my thoughts."

Ikaya's Performances Place Her On A Musical High

ikaya-performing.jpgDancehall deejay Ikaya is on a musical high following her commendable performances at a number of events, most recent of which was at St Mary Mi Come From, the cultural show staged by acclaimed fireman King Shango, aka Capleton.

In recognition of her growing popularity within the dancehall, Ikaya was no starlight act, instead she performed at 3 am, right after big gun Macka Diamond. Conscious of the fact that several artistes were waiting in the wings, Ikaya did a medley of her tunes and upped the excitement ante when she gave the cameraman a little "something to remember". She appropriately closed her set with the single, Better Whine.

Ikaya, prior to this, had strutted her stuff and rocked the stage at Guinness Summer Eclipse at The Jungle night club in Negril, Jamaica the previous weekend. The only female on the line-up, Ikaya represented well for the ladies and held nothing back as she gave a crowd-pleasing performance to a packed house.

Renaissance Disco apologizes to patrons

Renaissance-logo-Disco.jpgThe operators of Renaissance Disco would like to apologize to its many patrons, for the inconvenience experienced at its 21st anniversary party the Blackjack Edition.

The party which was well attended took place at the Palisadoes Go Kart Track in Kingston. In an apology issued to the media, Delano Thomas of Renaissance Disco explained. ‘We would like to apologize to the patrons for the wet conditions at the venue, which was caused by a high tide which flooded the venue. Because of this we had to shut down all generators to avoid electrical damage to equipment and human safety’.

Added Thomas 'We almost postponed the party at last minute but the tide started to recede and we decided to go ahead with the party. It took us some amount of time to set up the venue and to do clean up operations. This caused a delay in the opening of the gates and resulted in a long line at the entrance of the venue'.

In closing Thomas said 'We at Renaissance value our patrons and thank them for their continued support over the years. We promise to continue to deliver quality entertainment and an enjoyable and comfortable atmosphere for our loyal patrons’.

Sean Kingston: He's grateful

Sean Kingston is the quintessential rags-to-riches story. He burst on the pop-music scene in 2007 with the surprise success of Beautiful Girls, a single that topped the Billboard charts for three weeks, powered by its sample of Ben E. King's classic song Stand By Me.

The 20-year-old singer/songwriter has endured his share of tough times -- he was born in Miami, moved to Jamaica when he was 5, and ended up living in his car after moving back to the Magic City to pursue his dream. He hit it big, then followed up that success by co-writing Jason Derulo's massive hit Whatcha Say. Catch Kingston Thursday at the BankAtlantic Center opening for the white-hot pop sensation Justin Bieber, with whom he recorded the track Eeenie Meenie.

Kingston took the time to talk about his tour with The Miami Herald:

sean-kingston-duttylove-hitmaker.jpgQ: What can we expect Thursday?

A: I have a 50-minute set, and it's one of those deep celebration sets with a lot of energy and a lot of feel-good music, hands in the air, like a rock star just partying.

Q: You were born in Miami. What are some of your favorite hangouts?

A: South Beach is always nice, and the Grove. I like to go to Boca -- Boca has a nice mall. I like to go to Muvico, the Hard Rock -- I don't gamble or nothing like that, but the clubs are pretty nice. Wherever they let me in is where I'm at.

Q: How grateful are you for your success?

A: It's just a blessing. I'm very grateful, man. It's kind of like one of those things where I've been dreaming of this all my life, and it's finally opened up, that big break when I was 17. Now it's just about keeping it up and staying relevant and continuing to make great music,

Q: Were you surprised by how big ``Beautiful Girls'' got?

A: It wasn't really that much of a surprise due to the fact that I kind of knew how great the song was. I just didn't know it would pick up that fast.

Q: With "`Whatcha Say,'' did you guys know you had a big hit?

A: Yeah, with that, definitely, because of the sample and the production and the melody and where music was right now. I knew as soon as people heard that, they'd fall in love with it.

Q: How do you choose what songs to sample?

A: I'm really about doing stuff that's never been done before. Nobody ever used the Ben E. King beat and chopped it up. Nobody ever used Led Zeppelin or those types of things, creating it and making it your own.

MTV UK Interviews Popcaan - "The Wrap Up"

Submitted by Joseph Patterson

Marvin Sparks speaks to Jamaican artist Popcaan for The Wrap Up about his troubled upbringing in the ‘Gangsta City,’ avoiding temptation to enter a life of crime and tells us what makes Clarks an essential purchase for the summer... and the winter!


Born Andre Sutherland in St. Thomas and raised in a rough district of Portmore in St. Catherine, Jamaica, from the age of 7, Popcaan's began as a performer at his high school concerts. He never took his music career seriously until being scouted by leading dancehall artist, Vybz Kartel to join Kartel-led group, Portmore Empire in 2007 after spotting his talent at a local party. Kartel signed the youngster to his record label, Addijaheim soon thereafter. The 22-year-old counts reggae legend Sizzla Kalonji as his biggest musical inspiration alongside Vybz Kartel. Popcaan’s appearance on Vybz Kartel’s 2010 dancehall anthem ‘Clarks’ is currently taking dance floors by storm...

The Wrap Up: Where did the name Popcaan come from?

Popcaan: Me and you can reason about that name at a different location one day [laughs], but it was from a friend who passed on.

TWU: How would you describe yourself?

Popcaan: Hot skull, fry yiy [eye], boil brainz! [laughs]. Where my families concerned, I'm a loving person, where the ladies are concerned I'm a very loving person and I'm full of hype.

TWU: What have you learnt from being around Vybz Kartel?

Popcaan: I've learnt countless things from Kartel. You see di Teacha, he is the real teacher. He's taught me loads of things outside of music too, so he's a teacher in every way.

TWU: Most people will know you from your intro on Vybz Kartel's hit song ‘Clarks’. How did your feature come about?

Popcaan: Clarks are shoes we've worn from school days. Everybody wants Clarks. For a while me and di Teacha have only worn Clarks. One day a girl saw him and said, 'Them Clarks are bad you know!' He went home, called me and said, 'Yo Poppy, you know we need to do a tune about Clarks.’ He couldn't find a better person to record the song with, because we only wear Clarks!

Wyclef for President and makes iTunes history

platinum-shaggy-barrington-snoop-wyclef.jpgEven as his mind is full of political masterminding, campaigns and love for the future of his home country (Haiti), Wyclef still had time to sit down with the legendary Barrington Levy to collaborate on this infamous song. Platinum CamP's "Murderer", in association with Zojak World Wide, featuring Wyclef, Shaggy and Snoop Dogg made history this week as it was the first ever track to be featured by iTunes on both the Hip Hop and Reggae pages simultaneously.

This track, mixed by D&H, optimizes the cross over power of reggae music and shows that it will continue to mold the music industry. Daddy Bigg$, President and CEO of Platinum CamP, endorses Wyclef's candidacy and is working to engage fans in support of free Haitian elections.

The vibes shone bright at Heineken Beer Vibes

dj-shine-negril.jpgDJ Shine brought his 'A' game to Heineken Beer Vibes recently in Negril. Promoted by RAS Promotions, the event saw Shine delivering an outstanding presentation which left many bodies and feet weary after coming under attack from a catalogue of hit songs.

Kicking off his set with songs from Beres Hammond, Freddie McGregor, Sanchez, Ronnie Thwaites, and Wayne Wonder, Shine then upped the tempo with a delivery of hip hop treats, which took patrons on a musical escape.

Patrons could hardly contain themselves as the jam packed venue saw bumping heads and bodies swaying to the groove as Shine and his mic man Jon Jon waged and unadulterated musical assault.

Shine's early stint took the party to an elevated dimension, and paved the way for credible sets from the likes of Fire Links, ZJs Liquid and Bambino, Coppershot and Richie D.
