Dancehall/reggae artiste Mr. Vegas has allegedly engaged to a Caucasian female. According to allegations, the singer found love while he was on tour and he decided to validate his affection by popping the question.

Mr. Vegas was recently involved in an high profile love triangle scandal with his baby mother Shellian and an alleged doctor. Mr. Vegas has since severed ties with Shellian and has kicked her out of his U.S apartment; he later publicly sold the furniture online, causing much embarrassment to a now estranged Shellian.

Mr.Vegas also released a song called Bare Tingz in which he said that several women from across the world were now expressing their love for him. Perhaps this new Caucasian love is one of such women.

May Pen Market in Clarendon is being used as sex spot for lovers. According to citizens of the parish, since the market was left vacant by the vendors, couples have been spotted having sex in the vending area at nights.

Several vendors have also confirmed that the once vibrant market space is now a dilapidated structure that is being used to house animals. One person also said it's almost like an hotel based on the amount of persons that use the area as a sexual safe haven.

In addition to sex, several robberies are said to have taken place in the vicinity of the market. Some vendors even revealed that persons have gone as far as to live inside some of the empty rooms.

"It's the first I have ever heard about that. I have had regular meetings with the vendors and that was never disclosed. What I will do is launch an investigation. I am not aware but I will check on it nonetheless". The mayor of Maypen Mayor told the media in an interview.

"Mi nuh know wha Skatta a talk bout cause him a Downsound clown. Him a look a hype. I decided to leave DSR because of my personal issues. I don't have a management deal with them because I am still signed to someone else. I have a booking agent agreement deal with DSR," Khago continued.

A new reality show is being created featuring the Caribbean region, at the same time mimicking the American Basketball Wives. Reality TV is apparently the new money puller for commercial television and the Caribbean is seeking to get a bite out of that market, following in the footsteps of international cable stations like MTV and VH1.

The Caribbean reality series will be called Caribbean wives and was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the states, raising families, balancing marriage, career/business, living the American Dream and trying to fit in with their obvious cultural difference.

Maxine J. Tulloch, the Executive Producer says the show will be entertaining and boost Caribbean entertainment. She also says the casting will be authentic, which will go against the practice by Hollywood playwrights to use American actors to mimic Caribbean accents and resulting in a product which exhumes fakeness.

The show will be available via TMC which is one of Florida's most innovative and diverse media production provider. TMC production normally focuses on reaching Caribbean nationals residing in the USA, Canada, UK and the Caribbean Islands.

Tracy now wants her money returned. However Noddy while showing no remorse for his actions said.

"When I met Tracy she was married, mi respect her because a she a mi baby mother but she nuh suppose to a carry we business to the paper. Mi never beg her nutten.

The song is beeped from start to finish, however no amount of beeping will ever get this song on the radio, because the broadcasting commission's rule strongly states that no beeps will be tolerated.

Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta was booked to appear at a Trinidadian concert last weekend, however Tommy Lee was literally the only person booked to appear, as no patron turned out to support the artiste.

According to sources, the venue was empty all night which resulted in the promoter informing the media that the concert was postponed. Sources in Trinidad said patrons decided not to attend the event, because they did not support Tommy Lee Sparta's demonic songs.

Several radio stations in Trinidad are said to have pulled his music from their playlists which eventually disconnected the artiste from his Trini fans... the end result is that not many Trinidadians are aware of Tommy Lee's music.

Sources close to the artiste have sought to counter the news coming from Trinidad regarding the concert. According such sources, Tommy lee Sparta was welcomed by the Trinidadians. However the show did not work out due to an upsurge in criminal activities in the particular area that the show was supposed to be held.

Note, Trinidad had carnival less than weeks ago... so how does that add up? Tommy Lee Sparta had previously told the media that he would no longer use the Demon moniker in his music. He also did a song recently targeting the children, citing that he wants to right his wrongs.

Jamaica's first dancehall superstar Yellowman ushered in a new era in reggae music. His early '80s success brought the popularity of toasting (reggae's equivalent of rapping) to a new level and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future.

On April 23, 2013, 17 North Parade will unlock its vaults once again to unveil the latest Reggae Anthology, Yellowman's Young, Gifted & Yellow, from the undisputed king of dancehall. This powerful 2CD/DVD collection features 40 fully remastered essential tracks of both classic and obscure material throughout Yellowman's prolific career. As an added bonus, the deluxe package will include thorough liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawkes and a 25-minute DVD of Yellowman's 1988 electrifying live performance at Jamaica's longstanding annual music festival Sumfest. The first set of the anthology opens with his early '80s breakthrough hits like "Mad Over Me" recorded for Channel One, "Death of Barnabas," "Operation Eradication" and the infamously "slack" "Shorties." The second disc moves toward his later hits like "Who Can Make the Dance Ram" (a rewrite of "The Candy Man"), "Zungguzungguguzungguzeng" (one of Jamaica's most sampled songs to this day), "Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt" and a cover of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill."

Reid who went up against five other candidates in a controversial and vicious election, came out on top for the second year, despite numerous uncanny tactics used by some candidates to overthrow his leadership.

According to the CEAC, he was anti campaigned from all angles.

"Trust me this is the hardest election ever. After this term am just gonna focus on my degree and leave campus politics alone. They tried so hard to tarnish my character and undermine my accomplishments for the year. But I guess the real students recognized realness," Reid said.

Reid, his deputy GarrIzon and the One Link promotions team are largely credited for revolutionizing campus campaigns, using cheap banners and creative jingles to respond to expensive flyers and corporate financing.

Tuesday's victory in the UWI Guild elections marks the first that that a CEAC has retained power when the seat was contested. Several followers and candidates have since took to twitter to express their discontent over Reid's re-election to the post. However others claim that Reid remained humble during his tenure as CEAC and was never once overwhelmed by his power.

"Gramma is a good youth that's why mi sey Reid to Lead, is a youth wey nuh hype and him stay tru to the  thing. Some man get position and hype pon the same people who vote dem een but him nuh stay suh, dats y people rate him. Some a dem man ya wey a run just a look hype and gyal attention," Ryan Burrel a supporter of Miguel 'Gramma Zone' Reid said.

Chuck Fenda now has his own charity organisation called The Poor People Defender Foundation. According to the artiste he is going to do more for the poor.

"I am somebody who has endured harsh situations before getting my break into the music industry in the '90s, so I know how it feels to want things and can't afford it. That is why when I do music it's heartfelt because people can feel that my content is sincere. As the Poor People Defender, I always defend the rights of the poor, even when the positive message is not hot commercial, because somebody has to do it. But now mi just want to do more, so with this charity organisation that I am looking to start, I want to get more interactive with my people," Chuck Fenda said of his upcoming charity initiative.

The hundreds of homeless people lurking on the streets of downtown Kingston apparently got to Chuck Fenda's emotions.

"I have always given back whenever I am called upon, but I never really had a charity. But wah day ya mi a drive through downtown and mi see about 200 persons squatting on the streets, suh me a seh to miself, Jah know where is the Government? How come dem not paying attention to stuff like these? Suh mi decide seh mi a guh write a song about it. But when mi start write the song mi still nuh feel complete, is like one mind a seh yes wi preach about these things but Babylon not changing it. So I decided that I can personally play my little part to make a positive change," he told the media, and continued.

"One person can't do the entire job that needs to be done, but one person can spark a movement. They have a little slang that says practise what you preach, and so as a man that is always preaching against injustice and poverty and pleading the cause of poor people, I am making that move to practise what I preach by giving back. So if other people who duh music want to join me please do so, and the business people too, because this affects every Jamaican. Mi know seh record nah sell again like one time. But if me give a little out of my little and you give a little out of your little, we can help somebody else to have little, instead of some people have a lot and some people don't have none," he said.

Songs like Warning and It Hard are getting good attention at home and in Europe.

Dancehall artiste Raine Sevile and radio DJ Sparks, recently squared off on twitter after Sparks posted controversial pictures of Konshens and Raine Seville on her blog. The DJ also attempted ignite the controversy by stating that neither Konshens nor Raine Seville wanted to speak to her on the issue.

Raine took to twitter to express her discontent with Spark's comment on the blog and warned her not to 'draw her out'. However in quick succession, there was a response by Sparks, who apparently has a lot of time on her hands to be sending idle tweets and blogging about artistes.

According to Sparks, if Raine wasn't bouncing about like a ball, people would not have her name as a topic of discussion. Some persons have since commented that Sparks was out of line, citing that as a media personality she was unprofessional, while others have condemned both Raine Seville and Konshens for releasing the pictures in the first place.

Raine Seville later spoke to the media and took full responsibility for her actions; she also said the pictures were simply for entertainment and a teaser for her upcoming collaboration.

The artistes are said to be promoting a new single called Settle Down, however if Sparks is as petty as she appears to be, we doubt any song for Raine Seville will be in her playlist anytime soon.

In a sensational conclusion of the 2013 Boys and Girls' Cham-pionships, Holmwood Technical High came from well behind at the National Stadium to clip defending champions Edwin Allen High for the girls' title, while Calabar High easily pushed aside JC and KC to retain the boys' crown.

The meet pulled a huge audience turnout and their money was well spent as patrons got a chance to whitness 18 records falling on the final day and 30 overall, Holmwood wore down long-time leaders Edwin Allen, took the lead in mid-afternoon and came away with a narrow victory. Honestly Edwin Allen should not shed a tear because they literally had the title and gave it away. Who leads by over 50 points in the first day then loses by five on the final day at Champs? A commenter had predicted earlier Saturday morning that the only way Edwin Allen could lose Champs, was if they didn't turn out to participate...well obviously they did not.

The Maurice Wilson-coached Holmwood tallied 310.5 points to regain the title, their 10th in 11 years with Edwin Allen on 305.5. The top five was completed by St Jago (208), Vere Technical (202) and Hydel (157.50).

On the boys' side, Calabar had just too much all round quality for their rivals and won their 23rd title while Jamaica College (JC) surprised Kingston College (KC) to take second spot. The top five: Calabar - 299, JC 258.5, KC 247.5, Wolmer's Boys 121, St Jago 107.

Arif Cooper and the Fresh Team delivered a good set along with DJ Billy and Fresh Team's new recruit DJ Cris Cross.

Rap sensation Lil Wayne has been hospitalized again for seizures, reports say. The rapper was admitted to the hospital earlier in the week, according to TMZ.com.

The report suggests, through unnamed sources, that Lil Wayne went into the hospital after shooting a music video in Los Angeles on Tuesday. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital and was released a few hours later on Wednesday. Apparently, the rapper has recovered considerably at press time.

The rapper has had several bouts with seizures in the past, two of them in October of 2012.

Reps for Wayne didn't return request for comment. No reasons were given for the seizures, however Wayne has been struggling with drug addiction for quite some time and was recently banned from drugs after he was released from jail late last year.

ZJ Sparks recently exposed dancehall artistes Raine Seville and Konshens in a rather sexual position via her personal blog. According to the ZJ she tried to contact Konshens and Seville first, but they refused to answer her queries about the pictures.

"Today, I was going through music as usual and my phone buzzed, it was an email. It turned out not be a typical email, but a pic that almost blew my mind. I had to look at the pic a few times. Konshens and Raine Seville O_o. Who saw this coming? Certainly, not me. I responded to the sender, asking, 'ok is which video this for', I was told in no uncertain manner that it was not for a video. I was informed that more pictures would be forthcoming. I was speculative. I asserted that this had to be from a video, perhaps 'No Hesitation', after I had sent off the email, I remembered that that video was already out. I couldn't recall, at the time of writing, a Raine Seville Konshens combo. I reached out to Konshens, no response. Tried his management, no response. Called Raine Seville and she had no comment and promptly clicked the phone in my ear. Well, so mi get it ah so mi give it," ZJ Sparks said under the pictures she posted.

Rumor has it they the artistes have a song to be released called SETTLE DOWN.

Dancehall artiste Mavado is one of the headliners for Snoop Lion's upcoming show in the U.S called LionFest. LionFest will also feature international Sound System Major lazer.

The artiste missed a few performances at the recently staged Superbowl game shows due to some controversial material that was circulating the media. However the self proclaimed Gully Gad appears to be on the move again.

Of his upcoming performance on LionFest Mavado said.

"It's another great look for me. As an artiste with international aspirations, attending events like SXSW is essential, and to be on one of the big stages is a great opportunity. Snoop's helping shine the light on Jamaica and our music. So I intend to take advantage of that and uplift my brand and brand Jamaica on such a big stage".

LionFest is also an event that will lead to highly anticipated Reincarnated documentary and album.

DJ/Producer Baauer may be Harlem shaking all the way to the courthouse, after two artistes claim that the Mad Decent-signed DJ, unlawfully used their samples.

One of the artists claiming to be unlawfully sampled is Hector "El Father" Delgado, whose voice is used at the beginning of the track.

Hector Delgado's manager tells the New York Times:

"We can turn around and stop that song. That's a clear breaking of intellectual property rights".

Baauer is also accused of unlawfully sampling Philly rapper Jason Musson's "Miller Time."

Currently, Mad Decent didn't pull the licenses for either sample and will probably be in court putting up big bucks for their copyright infringement.

The Harlem Shake became a worldwide dance craze in a matter of days and has given Baauer global popularity in a fairly short commercial stint. In Jamaica alone there are hundreds of versions of the popular Harlem Shake videos.

I Octane now represents both Digicel and Busta soft drink as brand ambassador. The Reggae was selected by Busta soft drink as their first Jamaican entertainer brand ambassador.

I- Octane's publicist/manager Ray Alexander says.

"I-Octane has a clean image and he is corporate friendly. He has a good management team of about 10 persons and we ensure that we push the brand in the best way possible. The brand is standing up, and we always try to keep ourselves away from associating with certain negative elements," Ray Alexander said.

According to I-Octane the endorsement is a great accomplishment.

"It's a good look for me and reggae music, it opens doors for me, reggae music and other artistes. Music for me is an everyday thing and the companies see that and respect my work ethics. These endorsements can hopefully break barriers for the local music industry," I-Octane said.

The Busta contract will last for one year.

Local DJs have blasted songwriter and publisher Ruddy Isaacs comments stating that local DJs should pay to play songs.

The DJs in response to Isaacs, claim that artistes would not be reaping benefits from their songs without them.

dymond-2012C.jpg
"My question is this, and I am not being disrespectful because you (Ruddy) are an elder, but I want to ask, if the artiste record a song and keep it to himself and the DJ does not play it, will you make any money from it?" ZJ Dymond asked.

However, the brother of the late reggae icon Gregory Isaacs was quick to respond stating that.

"The radio station pay dem fi play and everybody wey play music publicly and nuh have nuh license, fi pay for it...Yu a bruck the law if you don't pay the societies. A artistes mek people know unno to, go on the stage and don't play any music and see what happens. So give back to the artistes. Promoters and the selectors must pay to play music, because the selectors collect money to play songs," Ruddy Isaacs said.

Irie FM's DJ Amber also had an objection.

"The copyright issue should be between the artistes and the record labels. I don't think promoters should pay an additional cost to what we are already paying, this never used to happen over the years so why now? And quite frankly, the artistes stand to gain more from us playing their music, it boosts their popularity and let record labels notice them. This music business is becoming too technical and about money," she said.

In adding some clarity to the situation, collection organisation, JAMMS, told STAR that promoters are the ones who should be paying and not the DJs/ selectors.

"Event promoters are the persons responsible for obtaining the required copyright permit to ensure that events are complying with the relevant provisions of copyright laws governing the playing of recorded music publicly. As the beneficial owners of the event, the promoter must seek to have in place all the required licenses, permits and consents that are needed to ensure that the event is meeting all legal obligations," the organization said.

This staging of the annual Appleton MISS UWI pageant marks the first time that the event was featured on national television. And Cultural Entertainment and Affairs Chairperson Miguel Reid hopes that at least one contestant will move on to represent the island in a major pageant.

"My aim is not to do an event which will just be a school pageant. I want a contest to excel to the point where she can represent Jamaica and perhaps bring home a world title. That is why team employed the necessary professionals to properly groom the contestants. We also gave them the opportunity Jamaica from all cultural perspectives so that they can be more culturally grounded and aware. But I guess I can't say everything people will have to just turn up at the pageant this Sunday evening and see for themselves" Reid said.

The launch of a Miss UWI YouTube channel was also announced. The channel features short features of the finalists, including their notorious Limo tour of the University campus and their much talked about photo shoot.

The Miss UWI Pageant will take place this Sunday March 10, 2013 at the UWI Regional Headquarters and is slated to Start at 7:30pm. Tickets will cost patrons $450 presold and $700 VIP.  Entertainment and refreshment will be available at the venue.

The Limo tour






French Montana and Nicki Minaj unleashed the "Freaks" in a provocative video over a dancehall track Murder She Wrote, originally performed by Chakka Demus and Pliers. The Bad Boy rapper and the Young Money diva shot the clip last month in L.A. with director Eif Rivera.

Nicki Minaj heats up the screen in a gold Jeremy Scott jacket, McQueen leggings, and pasties. The song's producer, Rico Love, makes a cameo and there is plenty of eye candy for the fellas, including a revelation of her fully erect breasts.

"She's the hottest chick to come out, I'm the hottest dude to come out of my city in a long time so I'm proud of everything she's doing," French said of Nicki. "She is one of the best to do it as a female artist, nothing but respect for her."

The dancehall-infused record, which samples Chaka Demus & Pliers' "Murder She Wrote" and Li'l Vicious and Doug E. Fresh's "Freaks," is set to appear on French's debut Excuse My French, due May 21.

Even a section of the song saw French Montana rapping in Chakka Demus's deejay flow.

According to this podcaster, close friend of Hugo Chavez, the iconic Fidel Castro, had confided in Chavez that his enemies could infect him with cancer. Therefore he should be mindful of the chefs that he ate from and the doctors that he trusted.

The podcaster also postulates that he has proof that America has developed ways and means to induce persons with cancer. According to him, the U.S has tried cancerous experiments on lab rats in recent times, in an effort to ascertain how fast the cancer would take to kill humans.

He also listed a host of Latin presidents/leaders whom have died as a result of cancer. To him this is no coincidence; however he also believes if Hugo Chavez had listened to Fidel Castro's so called warning, he would have still been alive today.

Injection Cancer Theory

Vice-President Nicolas Maduro spoke of a plot against Venezuela, saying he had no doubt that Mr Chavez's cancer, first diagnosed in 2011, had been induced by foul play by Venezuela's enemies - the US promptly rejected the accusations as "absurd".

He said a scientific commission could one day investigate whether Mr Chavez's illness was brought about by what he called an enemy attack.

Two US diplomats had been expelled from the country for spying on Venezuela's military, he added.

A statement by the military issued after Mr Chavez's death said it would protect the sovereignty, integrity and security of the country. It would remain loyal to the vice-president and to parliament, it added, urging people to remain calm.

Mr Jaua said a procession would carry Mr Chavez's body to the Military Academy in Caracas on Wednesday, where it will lie in state until Friday to allow his supporters to pay their respects.




The Iconic Hugo Chavez is dead!!

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has died aged 58, after 14 years in power.

Mr Chavez had been seriously ill with cancer for more than a year, undergoing several operations in Cuba.

Crowds of supporters gathered outside the Caracas hospital where he died, chanting "We are all Chavez!"

A self-proclaimed revolutionary, Hugo Chavez was a controversial figure in Venezuela and on the world stage. A staunch critic of the US, he inspired a left-wing revival across Latin America.

Following his death, Vice-President Nicolas Maduro will assume the presidency until an election is held within 30 days, Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said.

"A great leader has left us, a father"

Mourner in Caracas

"It is the mandate that Comandante President Hugo Chavez gave us," Mr Jaua told state television, adding that Mr Maduro would also be the candidate of the governing United Socialist Party (PSUV).

It was not immediately clear when the election would take place.

Mr Chavez's illness prevented him from taking the oath of office after he was re-elected for a fourth term in October.

The exact nature of his cancer was never officially disclosed, leading to continuing speculation about his health, and he had not been seen in public for several months.

Vice-president Nicolas Maduro was emotional as he announced Hugo Chavez's death

Seven days of national mourning have been declared and his body will lie in state until a funeral on Friday.

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles, whom Mr Chavez defeated in October's election, called on the government to "act in strict accordance with its constitutional duties".

Mr Capriles offered his condolences to Mr Chavez's family, saying "we were adversaries, but never enemies".

'Revolutionary legacy'

A former paratrooper, Hugo Chavez burst onto Venezuela's national stage in 1992 when he led a failed military coup.

After two years in prison he returned to politics and was swept to power in a 1998 election.

A self-proclaimed socialist and revolutionary, he won enduring support among the poor and repeated election victories by using Venezuela's oil wealth to pursue socialist policies.

But his opponents accused him of mishandling the economy and taking the country towards dictatorship.

Internationally, he was a staunch critic of US "imperialism" and accused Washington of backing a failed coup against him in 2002.

In Tuesday's televised address, a tearful Mr Maduro said the president had passed away "after battling a tough illness for nearly two years".





Reggae is world music, Rap is Black music?

Webmin

People tend to assume that rap music is bigger than reggae music due to the fact that rap music is more commercialized. However this is due to the power of the American media. Jamaica is a small island that does not have that strong media backing, financial power and commercial strength of America.

Therefore a Jamaican artiste might be doing good songs consistently and has no recognition in the U.S market because he does not have the necessary resources to promote there. However in the European countries which are less difficult to travel and spread music, you will find that several of Jamaica's talents are very popular and can pull more than 60,000 patrons to a venue... and by people I mean all races. In some cases predominantly Caucasians, because unlike rap music, Reggae music appears to be a universal language of love and peace.

Reggae music has long transcended across the barriers of racism, which is why the genre has several different races producing reggae music on their own, without receiving opposition from the reggae industry.

There are notable reggae artistes from different races and countries. Japanese like Ackee and Saltfish which named themselves from the Jamaican national dish, there is Jewish reggae artiste Matisyahu, there is German reggae artiste Gentleman, there is Italian reggae artiste Alberosie, the Puerto Ricans have made an entire genre from Reggae dancehall called Reggaeton and the list goes on and on.

This is why the German Saturn ad glamorized the Jamaican flag recently in a controversial ad. Some critics say the ad was disrespectful because a small Jamaican flag was burnt to tell a story.

However the damaged Jamaican flag was also replaced by an even bigger Jamaican flag which was released from the air above a huge sky scraper.

How many countries can boast that their flag is idolized in this manner? Some countries bigger than Jamaica in size are not even recognized internationally. And Jamaica's international recognition is based on the power and global impact of reggae music.

As it relates to rap music, the most successful Caucasian rap artiste is Slim Shady and his emergence seemed taboo to the rap community. After years of trying to prove himself to the black community and rap industry, he finally paved the way for artistes like Yelawolf, Paul Wall, Bubba Sparks among others.

However despite the emergence of such Caucasian rappers, rap music is still seen as "Black Music"... it is still limited in its reach. This limitation might be political or prejudice. However the fact is that, rap music has not successfully transcended its barriers, despite all that commercial backing from an extremely strong media... unlike reggae music which is a globally accepted product. Even American rap legend Snoop Lion is now a reggae artiste an Jim Jones, recently remixed a song on an authentic reggae beat.

50 Cent was booed of stage at the Reading Festival in England a few years ago and the legendary Jay - Z received a poor response at a similar event years prior to 50 Cent's experience, because the audience was out of tune with rap music. This shows that rap music might be one of the most popular genres in the United States. However on the world stage, reggae music is the real deal.

Reggae artistes like Luciano and Fantan Mojah are painted on the house of international footballer  Florent Johan Malouda... glamorized like musical gods. So the next time somebody compares rap music and reggae music, telling you that sales are low for reggae music and that numbers don't lie.

Let them know that "the world is ultimate the stage" let them do a fanbase check and see which genres has crossed the most borders and has be culturally accepted.

In a recent interview with Sway online, rap legend Jay-z was seemingly unhappy with the fact that rap music is still only seen as black music, despite so many years of fighting to break the barriers. He is quoted as saying.

"Last night I performed at the University of Arizona, I had a ball!! Through all the excitement and joking around (as well as the technical difficulties) I missed out on the opportunity to say something important.

On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson. I thought that to be the oddest pairing EVER but, soon realized, it's what I've always professed..There is NO such thing as BLACK music or WHITE music only GOOD or BAD music... I think concerts like this should happen more often. ( Outside of the one or 2 festivals a year or "Zootopia") I'm putting that into the universe..next up Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!!

Sorry I don't "Tweet" (do I?) so this will have to do.

Love," He said.

Don't mean to brag, but the reggae genre has long shared the same stage with just about any genre that the world has to offer. In the process standing out, and standing on its own twos. Reggae icon Bob Marley is literally a hero in several countries around the word. Not so sure about a hero status, for rap legends.

Internationally acclaimed dancehall artiste David "Mavado" Brooks makes history as the first Caribbean artist to receive an exclusive video premiere on Billboard, with his new single Take It featuring Karian Sang.

Distributed by Zojak World Wide and produced by Troyton Music, the blockbuster dancehall pop single debuted back in September and has been steadily gaining momentum on the international market, peaking at #1 on the BBC 1Xtra and Choice-FM charts in December, and also hitting #1 on CHRY 105.5FM in Toronto. The track also steams up airwaves in South Florida on Miami's hit station WEDR-99Jamz, and continues to enjoy airplay on reggae specialty programming, globally.

"Zojak World Wide/Troyton Music utilized top tier radio DJ pools to get the track played in major markets," states Zoe Espitia, CEO of Zojak World Wide.

"The company also secured radio interviews with commercial stations in the US and Canada, and enlisted Rhona Fox of Fox Fuse as the PR for the video."

Signed to We The Best/YMCMB, Mavado continues to thrill dancehall fans by staying true to the genre, despite his evolving move beyond dancehall borders. "Now aligned with a powerful hip-hop conglomerate, Mavado nonetheless has pledged allegiance to the music that birthed his career," writes Billboard journalist Patricia Meschino, in the exclusive premiere on March 4, 2013.

Rohan Marley is again living the life of a bachelor after breaking off his engagement to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana.

The reggae royalty-former American football player-entrepreneur was previously in a relationship with R&B singer Lauryn Hill, with whom he had five children.

In a recent interview with Open Magazine, Marley stated that he still had unresolved feelings for Lauryn Hill.

"I feel sad that I loved her so much and I faltered in expressing it to her somehow. It was my fault that she did not understand how I felt, and it was sad that we did not work out in that relationship sense. I was heartbroken for a long time," he said.

Commenting on his failed engagement to the Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana he said.

"Now, I am just engaged to myself. It is tough, but we are not to ask ourselves, 'Could you be loved?' but to say, 'Yes, I am loved," he said.

Marley was only nine years old when his father passed on at age 36.

While we admire Keiva's efforts and we recognize the talent of her local dress maker. We must say...no Keiva those breasts are not stiff enough to be exposed in that manner.

Rumors are circulating that Ice T released a letter saying this.

"I can't unbreak my heart, but I can take that azz back tho" said an obviously hurt Ice T in front of a courthouse after filing for divorce from his wife of 11 years after pictures of her kissing a fan surfaced online.

"She can have the money, the house, but them t*tties is mine" Ice T said after explaining that hitting her where it hurts will do more damage than leaving her broke ever would. "I'ma let her start March off with nobody and no body." Ice T wants her assets delivered to the doorstep of his New Jersey estate no later than March 1st or any monetary support Coco would receive from the divorce will be withdrawn.

However in a recent statement a representative for Coco, 33, insisted that despite the ongoing cheating scandal surrounding the glamour model and Oakland rapper AP.9, the Coco and Ice T are stronger than ever.

"Ice and Coco are doing totally fine, the separation rumors are false," Coco's rep told Rumorfix.com. "Those papers are fake. They are not addressing rumors or the photos (of her posing with that rapper) and are moving forward happily."

Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has penned five-page letter which he released to the public yesterday. The letter, suggests that the police have masterminded a malicious and sustained smear campaign that is quite damaging to the progress of his murder cases and reputation. The letter begins: "This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts":

In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington 'Bossie' Burton.

Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in 'Bossie' Burton's death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.

Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive 'Lizard' Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with "attempting to pervert the course of justice" in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be "since his arrest, the community is a safer place". He said.

Vybz kartel believes he made enemies in high places that are trying to see him put away for life. Tweet us your comments.

Several vendors have also confirmed that the once vibrant market space is now a dilapidated structure that is being used to house animals. One person also said it's almost like an hotel based on the amount of persons that use the area as a sexual safe haven.

In addition to sex, several robberies are said to have taken place in the vicinity of the market. Some vendors even revealed that persons have gone as far as to live inside some of the empty rooms.

"It's the first I have ever heard about that. I have had regular meetings with the vendors and that was never disclosed. What I will do is launch an investigation. I am not aware but I will check on it nonetheless". The mayor of Maypen Mayor told the media in an interview.

Khago has ditched another local record label. According to the artiste, the CEO of Downsound Records Joe Bogdanovich made him promises that he did not fulfill.

However Skatta Burrell, says Khago is the problem and that the artiste is ungrateful. Skatta also said Khago is bounded by his Downsound contract, therefore he should be careful not to break the law.

Khago, however, revealed that the contract did not own him. He also said that Skatta is nothing but a clown.

"Mi nuh know wha Skatta a talk bout cause him a Downsound clown. Him a look a hype. I decided to leave DSR because of my personal issues. I don't have a management deal with them because I am still signed to someone else. I have a booking agent agreement deal with DSR," Khago continued.

Despite what anybody has to say, both Khago and Downsound records appear to have issues working with people. Several artistes have severed ties with the record label in the past including Fantan Mojah, Nanko and now Khago.

Khago has done his fair share of skipping out of contracts. He ended relationships the Bankelous his former manager, Stashment Records and now Downsound Records.

A new reality show is being created featuring the Caribbean region, at the same time mimicking the American Basketball Wives. Reality TV is apparently the new money puller for commercial television and the Caribbean is seeking to get a bite out of that market, following in the footsteps of international cable stations like MTV and VH1.

The Caribbean reality series will be called Caribbean wives and was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the states, raising families, balancing marriage, career/business, living the American Dream and trying to fit in with their obvious cultural difference.

Maxine J. Tulloch, the Executive Producer says the show will be entertaining and boost Caribbean entertainment. She also says the casting will be authentic, which will go against the practice by Hollywood playwrights to use American actors to mimic Caribbean accents and resulting in a product which exhumes fakeness.

The show will be available via TMC which is one of Florida's most innovative and diverse media production provider. TMC production normally focuses on reaching Caribbean nationals residing in the USA, Canada, UK and the Caribbean Islands.

Alliance signed artiste Prince Pin, has released an official music video for his latest single Nuh tek Disrespect. The song is a clear war song which incites violence against any human who crosses his path in a way deemed as being negative to him.

Prince Pin is originally from Westmoreland Jamaica. The artiste is already showing similarities to his mentor Bounty Killer who made a name for himself in the early 90s via gun slinging lyrics like Kill Fi Fun, Nah Nuh Mercy, Lodge among others.

The song is beeped from start to finish, however no amount of beeping will ever get this song on the radio, because the broadcasting commission's rule strongly states that no beeps will be tolerated.

Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta was booked to appear at a Trinidadian concert last weekend, however Tommy Lee was literally the only person booked to appear, as no patron turned out to support the artiste.

According to sources, the venue was empty all night which resulted in the promoter informing the media that the concert was postponed. Sources in Trinidad said patrons decided not to attend the event, because they did not support Tommy Lee Sparta's demonic songs.

Several radio stations in Trinidad are said to have pulled his music from their playlists which eventually disconnected the artiste from his Trini fans... the end result is that not many Trinidadians are aware of Tommy Lee's music.

Sources close to the artiste have sought to counter the news coming from Trinidad regarding the concert. According such sources, Tommy lee Sparta was welcomed by the Trinidadians. However the show did not work out due to an upsurge in criminal activities in the particular area that the show was supposed to be held.

Note, Trinidad had carnival less than weeks ago... so how does that add up? Tommy Lee Sparta had previously told the media that he would no longer use the Demon moniker in his music. He also did a song recently targeting the children, citing that he wants to right his wrongs.

yellow-man.jpg

Jamaica's first dancehall superstar Yellowman ushered in a new era in reggae music. His early '80s success brought the popularity of toasting (reggae's equivalent of rapping) to a new level and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future.

On April 23, 2013, 17 North Parade will unlock its vaults once again to unveil the latest Reggae Anthology, Yellowman's Young, Gifted & Yellow, from the undisputed king of dancehall. This powerful 2CD/DVD collection features 40 fully remastered essential tracks of both classic and obscure material throughout Yellowman's prolific career. As an added bonus, the deluxe package will include thorough liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawkes and a 25-minute DVD of Yellowman's 1988 electrifying live performance at Jamaica's longstanding annual music festival Sumfest. The first set of the anthology opens with his early '80s breakthrough hits like "Mad Over Me" recorded for Channel One, "Death of Barnabas," "Operation Eradication" and the infamously "slack" "Shorties." The second disc moves toward his later hits like "Who Can Make the Dance Ram" (a rewrite of "The Candy Man"), "Zungguzungguguzungguzeng" (one of Jamaica's most sampled songs to this day), "Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt" and a cover of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill."

According to the CEAC, he was anti campaigned from all angles.

"Trust me this is the hardest election ever. After this term am just gonna focus on my degree and leave campus politics alone. They tried so hard to tarnish my character and undermine my accomplishments for the year. But I guess the real students recognized realness," Reid said.

Reid, his deputy GarrIzon and the One Link promotions team are largely credited for revolutionizing campus campaigns, using cheap banners and creative jingles to respond to expensive flyers and corporate financing.

Tuesday's victory in the UWI Guild elections marks the first that that a CEAC has retained power when the seat was contested. Several followers and candidates have since took to twitter to express their discontent over Reid's re-election to the post. However others claim that Reid remained humble during his tenure as CEAC and was never once overwhelmed by his power.

"Gramma is a good youth that's why mi sey Reid to Lead, is a youth wey nuh hype and him stay tru to the  thing. Some man get position and hype pon the same people who vote dem een but him nuh stay suh, dats y people rate him.

Chuck Fenda now has his own charity organisation called The Poor People Defender Foundation. According to the artiste he is going to do more for the poor.

"I am somebody who has endured harsh situations before getting my break into the music industry in the '90s, so I know how it feels to want things and can't afford it. That is why when I do music it's heartfelt because people can feel that my content is sincere. As the Poor People Defender, I always defend the rights of the poor, even when the positive message is not hot commercial, because somebody has to do it. But now mi just want to do more, so with this charity organisation that I am looking to start, I want to get more interactive with my people," Chuck Fenda said of his upcoming charity initiative.

The hundreds of homeless people lurking on the streets of downtown Kingston apparently got to Chuck Fenda's emotions.

"I have always given back whenever I am called upon, but I never really had a charity. But wah day ya mi a drive through downtown and mi see about 200 persons squatting on the streets, suh me a seh to miself, Jah know where is the Government? How come dem not paying attention to stuff like these? Suh mi decide seh mi a guh write a song about it. But when mi start write the song mi still nuh feel complete, is like one mind a seh yes wi preach about these things but Babylon not changing it. So I decided that I can personally play my little part to make a positive change," he told the media, and continued.

"One person can't do the entire job that needs to be done, but one person can spark a movement. They have a little slang that says practise what you preach, and so as a man that is always preaching against injustice and poverty and pleading the cause of poor people, I am making that move to practise what I preach by giving back. So if other people who duh music want to join me please do so, and the business people too, because this affects every Jamaican. Mi know seh record nah sell again like one time. But if me give a little out of my little and you give a little out of your little, we can help somebody else to have little, instead of some people have a lot and some people don't have none," he said.

Songs like Warning and It Hard are getting good attention at home and in Europe.

Dancehall artiste Raine Sevile and radio DJ Sparks, recently squared off on twitter after Sparks posted controversial pictures of Konshens and Raine Seville on her blog. The DJ also attempted ignite the controversy by stating that neither Konshens nor Raine Seville wanted to speak to her on the issue.

Raine took to twitter to express her discontent with Spark's comment on the blog and warned her not to 'draw her out'. However in quick succession, there was a response by Sparks, who apparently has a lot of time on her hands to be sending idle tweets and blogging about artistes.

According to Sparks, if Raine wasn't bouncing about like a ball, people would not have her name as a topic of discussion. Some persons have since commented that Sparks was out of line, citing that as a media personality she was unprofessional, while others have condemned both Raine Seville and Konshens for releasing the pictures in the first place.

Raine Seville later spoke to the media and took full responsibility for her actions; she also said the pictures were simply for entertainment and a teaser for her upcoming collaboration.

The artistes are said to be promoting a new single called Settle Down, however if Sparks is as petty as she appears to be, we doubt any song for Raine Seville will be in her playlist anytime soon.

In a sensational conclusion of the 2013 Boys and Girls' Cham-pionships, Holmwood Technical High came from well behind at the National Stadium to clip defending champions Edwin Allen High for the girls' title, while Calabar High easily pushed aside JC and KC to retain the boys' crown.

The meet pulled a huge audience turnout and their money was well spent as patrons got a chance to whitness 18 records falling on the final day and 30 overall, Holmwood wore down long-time leaders Edwin Allen, took the lead in mid-afternoon and came away with a narrow victory. Honestly Edwin Allen should not shed a tear because they literally had the title and gave it away. Who leads by over 50 points in the first day then loses by five on the final day at Champs? A commenter had predicted earlier Saturday morning that the only way Edwin Allen could lose Champs, was if they didn't turn out to participate...well obviously they did not.

The Maurice Wilson-coached Holmwood tallied 310.5 points to regain the title, their 10th in 11 years with Edwin Allen on 305.5. The top five was completed by St Jago (208), Vere Technical (202) and Hydel (157.50).

On the boys' side, Calabar had just too much all round quality for their rivals and won their 23rd title while Jamaica College (JC) surprised Kingston College (KC) to take second spot. The top five: Calabar - 299, JC 258.5, KC 247.5, Wolmer's Boys 121, St Jago 107.

ZJ Sparks recently exposed dancehall artistes Raine Seville and Konshens in a rather sexual position via her personal blog. According to the ZJ she tried to contact Konshens and Seville first, but they refused to answer her queries about the pictures.

"Today, I was going through music as usual and my phone buzzed, it was an email. It turned out not be a typical email, but a pic that almost blew my mind. I had to look at the pic a few times. Konshens and Raine Seville O_o. Who saw this coming? Certainly, not me. I responded to the sender, asking, 'ok is which video this for', I was told in no uncertain manner that it was not for a video. I was informed that more pictures would be forthcoming. I was speculative. I asserted that this had to be from a video, perhaps 'No Hesitation', after I had sent off the email, I remembered that that video was already out. I couldn't recall, at the time of writing, a Raine Seville Konshens combo. I reached out to Konshens, no response. Tried his management, no response. Called Raine Seville and she had no comment and promptly clicked the phone in my ear. Well, so mi get it ah so mi give it," ZJ Sparks said under the pictures she posted.

Rumor has it they the artistes have a song to be released called SETTLE DOWN.

Dancehall artiste Mavado is one of the headliners for Snoop Lion's upcoming show in the U.S called LionFest. LionFest will also feature international Sound System Major lazer.

The artiste missed a few performances at the recently staged Superbowl game shows due to some controversial material that was circulating the media. However the self proclaimed Gully Gad appears to be on the move again.

Of his upcoming performance on LionFest Mavado said.

"It's another great look for me. As an artiste with international aspirations, attending events like SXSW is essential, and to be on one of the big stages is a great opportunity. Snoop's helping shine the light on Jamaica and our music. So I intend to take advantage of that and uplift my brand and brand Jamaica on such a big stage".

LionFest is also an event that will lead to highly anticipated Reincarnated documentary and album.

Former participant in Vybz kartel's reality show Techa's Pet is even getting raunchier than ever. The stripper who calls herself New York was recently on BBM exposing her goodies to the public.

DJ/Producer Baauer may be Harlem shaking all the way to the courthouse, after two artistes claim that the Mad Decent-signed DJ, unlawfully used their samples.

One of the artists claiming to be unlawfully sampled is Hector "El Father" Delgado, whose voice is used at the beginning of the track.

Hector Delgado's manager tells the New York Times:

"We can turn around and stop that song. That's a clear breaking of intellectual property rights".

Baauer is also accused of unlawfully sampling Philly rapper Jason Musson's "Miller Time."

Currently, Mad Decent didn't pull the licenses for either sample and will probably be in court putting up big bucks for their copyright infringement.

The Harlem Shake became a worldwide dance craze in a matter of days and has given Baauer global popularity in a fairly short commercial stint. In Jamaica alone there are hundreds of versions of the popular Harlem Shake videos.

I Octane now represents both Digicel and Busta soft drink as brand ambassador. The Reggae was selected by Busta soft drink as their first Jamaican entertainer brand ambassador.

I- Octane's publicist/manager Ray Alexander says.

"I-Octane has a clean image and he is corporate friendly. He has a good management team of about 10 persons and we ensure that we push the brand in the best way possible. The brand is standing up, and we always try to keep ourselves away from associating with certain negative elements," Ray Alexander said.

According to I-Octane the endorsement is a great accomplishment.

"It's a good look for me and reggae music, it opens doors for me, reggae music and other artistes. Music for me is an everyday thing and the companies see that and respect my work ethics. These endorsements can hopefully break barriers for the local music industry," I-Octane said.

The Busta contract will last for one year.

Local DJs have blasted songwriter and publisher Ruddy Isaacs comments stating that local DJs should pay to play songs.

The DJs in response to Isaacs, claim that artistes would not be reaping benefits from their songs without them.

dymond-2012C.jpg
"My question is this, and I am not being disrespectful because you (Ruddy) are an elder, but I want to ask, if the artiste record a song and keep it to himself and the DJ does not play it, will you make any money from it?" ZJ Dymond asked.

However, the brother of the late reggae icon Gregory Isaacs was quick to respond stating that.

"The radio station pay dem fi play and everybody wey play music publicly and nuh have nuh license, fi pay for it...Yu a bruck the law if you don't pay the societies. A artistes mek people know unno to, go on the stage and don't play any music and see what happens. So give back to the artistes. Promoters and the selectors must pay to play music, because the selectors collect money to play songs," Ruddy Isaacs said.

Irie FM's DJ Amber also had an objection.

"The copyright issue should be between the artistes and the record labels. I don't think promoters should pay an additional cost to what we are already paying, this never used to happen over the years so why now? And quite frankly, the artistes stand to gain more from us playing their music, it boosts their popularity and let record labels notice them. This music business is becoming too technical and about money," she said.

In adding some clarity to the situation, collection organisation, JAMMS, told STAR that promoters are the ones who should be paying and not the DJs/ selectors.

"Event promoters are the persons responsible for obtaining the required copyright permit to ensure that events are complying with the relevant provisions of copyright laws governing the playing of recorded music publicly. As the beneficial owners of the event, the promoter must seek to have in place all the required licenses, permits and consents that are needed to ensure that the event is meeting all legal obligations," the organization said.

This staging of the annual Appleton MISS UWI pageant marks the first time that the event was featured on national television. And Cultural Entertainment and Affairs Chairperson Miguel Reid hopes that at least one contestant will move on to represent the island in a major pageant.

"My aim is not to do an event which will just be a school pageant. I want a contest to excel to the point where she can represent Jamaica and perhaps bring home a world title. That is why team employed the necessary professionals to properly groom the contestants. We also gave them the opportunity Jamaica from all cultural perspectives so that they can be more culturally grounded and aware. But I guess I can't say everything people will have to just turn up at the pageant this Sunday evening and see for themselves" Reid said.

The launch of a Miss UWI YouTube channel was also announced. The channel features short features of the finalists, including their notorious Limo tour of the University campus and their much talked about photo shoot.

The Miss UWI Pageant will take place this Sunday March 10, 2013 at the UWI Regional Headquarters and is slated to Start at 7:30pm. Tickets will cost patrons $450 presold and $700 VIP.  Entertainment and refreshment will be available at the venue.


The Photo Shoot


The Limo tour






French Montana and Nicki Minaj unleashed the "Freaks" in a provocative video over a dancehall track Murder She Wrote, originally performed by Chakka Demus and Pliers. The Bad Boy rapper and the Young Money diva shot the clip last month in L.A. with director Eif Rivera.

Nicki Minaj heats up the screen in a gold Jeremy Scott jacket, McQueen leggings, and pasties. The song's producer, Rico Love, makes a cameo and there is plenty of eye candy for the fellas, including a revelation of her fully erect breasts.

"She's the hottest chick to come out, I'm the hottest dude to come out of my city in a long time so I'm proud of everything she's doing," French said of Nicki. "She is one of the best to do it as a female artist, nothing but respect for her."

The dancehall-infused record, which samples Chaka Demus & Pliers' "Murder She Wrote" and Li'l Vicious and Doug E. Fresh's "Freaks," is set to appear on French's debut Excuse My French, due May 21.

Even a section of the song saw French Montana rapping in Chakka Demus's deejay flow.

According to this podcaster, close friend of Hugo Chavez, the iconic Fidel Castro, had confided in Chavez that his enemies could infect him with cancer. Therefore he should be mindful of the chefs that he ate from and the doctors that he trusted.

The podcaster also postulates that he has proof that America has developed ways and means to induce persons with cancer. According to him, the U.S has tried cancerous experiments on lab rats in recent times, in an effort to ascertain how fast the cancer would take to kill humans.

He also listed a host of Latin presidents/leaders whom have died as a result of cancer. To him this is no coincidence; however he also believes if Hugo Chavez had listened to Fidel Castro's so called warning, he would have still been alive today.

Vice-President Nicolas Maduro spoke of a plot against Venezuela, saying he had no doubt that Mr Chavez's cancer, first diagnosed in 2011, had been induced by foul play by Venezuela's enemies - the US promptly rejected the accusations as "absurd".

He said a scientific commission could one day investigate whether Mr Chavez's illness was brought about by what he called an enemy attack.

Two US diplomats had been expelled from the country for spying on Venezuela's military, he added.

A statement by the military issued after Mr Chavez's death said it would protect the sovereignty, integrity and security of the country. It would remain loyal to the vice-president and to parliament, it added, urging people to remain calm.

Mr Jaua said a procession would carry Mr Chavez's body to the Military Academy in Caracas on Wednesday, where it will lie in state until Friday to allow his supporters to pay their respects.




The Iconic Hugo Chavez is dead!!

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has died aged 58, after 14 years in power.

Mr Chavez had been seriously ill with cancer for more than a year, undergoing several operations in Cuba.

Crowds of supporters gathered outside the Caracas hospital where he died, chanting "We are all Chavez!"

A self-proclaimed revolutionary, Hugo Chavez was a controversial figure in Venezuela and on the world stage. A staunch critic of the US, he inspired a left-wing revival across Latin America.

Following his death, Vice-President Nicolas Maduro will assume the presidency until an election is held within 30 days, Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said.

"A great leader has left us, a father"

Mourner in Caracas

"It is the mandate that Comandante President Hugo Chavez gave us," Mr Jaua told state television, adding that Mr Maduro would also be the candidate of the governing United Socialist Party (PSUV).

It was not immediately clear when the election would take place.

Mr Chavez's illness prevented him from taking the oath of office after he was re-elected for a fourth term in October.

The exact nature of his cancer was never officially disclosed, leading to continuing speculation about his health, and he had not been seen in public for several months.

Vice-president Nicolas Maduro was emotional as he announced Hugo Chavez's death

Seven days of national mourning have been declared and his body will lie in state until a funeral on Friday.

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles, whom Mr Chavez defeated in October's election, called on the government to "act in strict accordance with its constitutional duties".

Mr Capriles offered his condolences to Mr Chavez's family, saying "we were adversaries, but never enemies".

'Revolutionary legacy'

A former paratrooper, Hugo Chavez burst onto Venezuela's national stage in 1992 when he led a failed military coup.

After two years in prison he returned to politics and was swept to power in a 1998 election.

A self-proclaimed socialist and revolutionary, he won enduring support among the poor and repeated election victories by using Venezuela's oil wealth to pursue socialist policies.

But his opponents accused him of mishandling the economy and taking the country towards dictatorship.

Internationally, he was a staunch critic of US "imperialism" and accused Washington of backing a failed coup against him in 2002.

In Tuesday's televised address, a tearful Mr Maduro said the president had passed away "after battling a tough illness for nearly two years".





Reggae is world music, Rap is Black music?

Webmin

People tend to assume that rap music is bigger than reggae music due to the fact that rap music is more commercialized. However this is due to the power of the American media. Jamaica is a small island that does not have that strong media backing, financial power and commercial strength of America.

Therefore a Jamaican artiste might be doing good songs consistently and has no recognition in the U.S market because he does not have the necessary resources to promote there. However in the European countries which are less difficult to travel and spread music, you will find that several of Jamaica's talents are very popular and can pull more than 60,000 patrons to a venue... and by people I mean all races. In some cases predominantly Caucasians, because unlike rap music, Reggae music appears to be a universal language of love and peace.

Reggae music has long transcended across the barriers of racism, which is why the genre has several different races producing reggae music on their own, without receiving opposition from the reggae industry.

There are notable reggae artistes from different races and countries. Japanese like Ackee and Saltfish which named themselves from the Jamaican national dish, there is Jewish reggae artiste Matisyahu, there is German reggae artiste Gentleman, there is Italian reggae artiste Alberosie, the Puerto Ricans have made an entire genre from Reggae dancehall called Reggaeton and the list goes on and on.

This is why the German Saturn ad glamorized the Jamaican flag recently in a controversial ad. Some critics say the ad was disrespectful because a small Jamaican flag was burnt to tell a story.

However the damaged Jamaican flag was also replaced by an even bigger Jamaican flag which was released from the air above a huge sky scraper.

How many countries can boast that their flag is idolized in this manner? Some countries bigger than Jamaica in size are not even recognized internationally. And Jamaica's international recognition is based on the power and global impact of reggae music.

As it relates to rap music, the most successful Caucasian rap artiste is Slim Shady and his emergence seemed taboo to the rap community. After years of trying to prove himself to the black community and rap industry, he finally paved the way for artistes like Yelawolf, Paul Wall, Bubba Sparks among others.

However despite the emergence of such Caucasian rappers, rap music is still seen as "Black Music"... it is still limited in its reach. This limitation might be political or prejudice. However the fact is that, rap music has not successfully transcended its barriers, despite all that commercial backing from an extremely strong media... unlike reggae music which is a globally accepted product. Even American rap legend Snoop Lion is now a reggae artiste an Jim Jones, recently remixed a song on an authentic reggae beat.

50 Cent was booed of stage at the Reading Festival in England a few years ago and the legendary Jay - Z received a poor response at a similar event years prior to 50 Cent's experience, because the audience was out of tune with rap music. This shows that rap music might be one of the most popular genres in the United States. However on the world stage, reggae music is the real deal.

Reggae artistes like Luciano and Fantan Mojah are painted on the house of international footballer  Florent Johan Malouda... glamorized like musical gods. So the next time somebody compares rap music and reggae music, telling you that sales are low for reggae music and that numbers don't lie.

Let them know that "the world is ultimate the stage" let them do a fanbase check and see which genres has crossed the most borders and has be culturally accepted.

In a recent interview with Sway online, rap legend Jay-z was seemingly unhappy with the fact that rap music is still only seen as black music, despite so many years of fighting to break the barriers. He is quoted as saying.

"Last night I performed at the University of Arizona, I had a ball!! Through all the excitement and joking around (as well as the technical difficulties) I missed out on the opportunity to say something important.

On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson. I thought that to be the oddest pairing EVER but, soon realized, it's what I've always professed..There is NO such thing as BLACK music or WHITE music only GOOD or BAD music... I think concerts like this should happen more often. ( Outside of the one or 2 festivals a year or "Zootopia") I'm putting that into the universe..next up Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!!

Sorry I don't "Tweet" (do I?) so this will have to do.

Love," He said.

Don't mean to brag, but the reggae genre has long shared the same stage with just about any genre that the world has to offer. In the process standing out, and standing on its own twos. Reggae icon Bob Marley is literally a hero in several countries around the word. Not so sure about a hero status, for rap legends.

Internationally acclaimed dancehall artiste David "Mavado" Brooks makes history as the first Caribbean artist to receive an exclusive video premiere on Billboard, with his new single Take It featuring Karian Sang.

Distributed by Zojak World Wide and produced by Troyton Music, the blockbuster dancehall pop single debuted back in September and has been steadily gaining momentum on the international market, peaking at #1 on the BBC 1Xtra and Choice-FM charts in December, and also hitting #1 on CHRY 105.5FM in Toronto. The track also steams up airwaves in South Florida on Miami's hit station WEDR-99Jamz, and continues to enjoy airplay on reggae specialty programming, globally.

"Zojak World Wide/Troyton Music utilized top tier radio DJ pools to get the track played in major markets," states Zoe Espitia, CEO of Zojak World Wide.

"The company also secured radio interviews with commercial stations in the US and Canada, and enlisted Rhona Fox of Fox Fuse as the PR for the video."

Signed to We The Best/YMCMB, Mavado continues to thrill dancehall fans by staying true to the genre, despite his evolving move beyond dancehall borders. "Now aligned with a powerful hip-hop conglomerate, Mavado nonetheless has pledged allegiance to the music that birthed his career," writes Billboard journalist Patricia Meschino, in the exclusive premiere on March 4, 2013.

Rohan Marley is again living the life of a bachelor after breaking off his engagement to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana.

The reggae royalty-former American football player-entrepreneur was previously in a relationship with R&B singer Lauryn Hill, with whom he had five children.

In a recent interview with Open Magazine, Marley stated that he still had unresolved feelings for Lauryn Hill.

"I feel sad that I loved her so much and I faltered in expressing it to her somehow. It was my fault that she did not understand how I felt, and it was sad that we did not work out in that relationship sense. I was heartbroken for a long time," he said.

Commenting on his failed engagement to the Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana he said.

"Now, I am just engaged to myself. It is tough, but we are not to ask ourselves, 'Could you be loved?' but to say, 'Yes, I am loved," he said.

Marley was only nine years old when his father passed on at age 36.

While we admire Keiva's efforts and we recognize the talent of her local dress maker. We must say...no Keiva those breasts are not stiff enough to be exposed in that manner.

Sure your skin looked clean enough, but if you are going up against Kelly Rowland, you have to come way better than that...hence no sagging will be tolerated.

Rumors are circulating that Ice T released a letter saying this.

"I can't unbreak my heart, but I can take that azz back tho" said an obviously hurt Ice T in front of a courthouse after filing for divorce from his wife of 11 years after pictures of her kissing a fan surfaced online.

"She can have the money, the house, but them t*tties is mine" Ice T said after explaining that hitting her where it hurts will do more damage than leaving her broke ever would. "I'ma let her start March off with nobody and no body." Ice T wants her assets delivered to the doorstep of his New Jersey estate no later than March 1st or any monetary support Coco would receive from the divorce will be withdrawn.

However in a recent statement a representative for Coco, 33, insisted that despite the ongoing cheating scandal surrounding the glamour model and Oakland rapper AP.9, the Coco and Ice T are stronger than ever.

"Ice and Coco are doing totally fine, the separation rumors are false," Coco's rep told Rumorfix.com. "Those papers are fake. They are not addressing rumors or the photos (of her posing with that rapper) and are moving forward happily."

Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has penned five-page letter which he released to the public yesterday. The letter, suggests that the police have masterminded a malicious and sustained smear campaign that is quite damaging to the progress of his murder cases and reputation. The letter begins: "This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts":

In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington 'Bossie' Burton.

Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in 'Bossie' Burton's death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.

Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive 'Lizard' Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with "attempting to pervert the course of justice" in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be "since his arrest, the community is a safer place". He said.

Vybz kartel believes he made enemies in high places that are trying to see him put away for life. Tweet us your comments.

May Pen Market in Clarendon is being used as sex spot for lovers. According to citizens of the parish, since the market was left vacant by the vendors, couples have been spotted having sex in the vending area at nights.

Several vendors have also confirmed that the once vibrant market space is now a dilapidated structure that is being used to house animals. One person also said it's almost like an hotel based on the amount of persons that use the area as a sexual safe haven.

In addition to sex, several robberies are said to have taken place in the vicinity of the market. Some vendors even revealed that persons have gone as far as to live inside some of the empty rooms.

"It's the first I have ever heard about that. I have had regular meetings with the vendors and that was never disclosed. What I will do is launch an investigation. I am not aware but I will check on it nonetheless". The mayor of Maypen Mayor told the media in an interview.

Khago has ditched another local record label. According to the artiste, the CEO of Downsound Records Joe Bogdanovich made him promises that he did not fulfill.

However Skatta Burrell, says Khago is the problem and that the artiste is ungrateful. Skatta also said Khago is bounded by his Downsound contract, therefore he should be careful not to break the law.

Khago, however, revealed that the contract did not own him. He also said that Skatta is nothing but a clown.

"Mi nuh know wha Skatta a talk bout cause him a Downsound clown. Him a look a hype. I decided to leave DSR because of my personal issues. I don't have a management deal with them because I am still signed to someone else. I have a booking agent agreement deal with DSR," Khago continued.

"Joe tell mi sey he will act as a manager and him will do tings like give me one music video every three months, maintain my visibility on TV, produce band for me, gimme a stylist and more tings. Unuh see me inna designer clothes? A nine tings him promise and mi nuh see dem yet," Khago said.

The artiste further jabbed at Skatta Burrell stating that the producer was like a child and dependent on Joe.

"Mi nuh sign to Skatta. Joe always a tell me say him busy when mi link him. Unuh need fi tell Skatta fi go siddung cause the first time me go DSR a run dem a run Skatta and tek whe him bimma key and him a bawl and a me haffi beg fi him.

A new reality show is being created featuring the Caribbean region, at the same time mimicking the American Basketball Wives. Reality TV is apparently the new money puller for commercial television and the Caribbean is seeking to get a bite out of that market, following in the footsteps of international cable stations like MTV and VH1.

The Caribbean reality series will be called Caribbean wives and was produced to feature Caribbean wives living in South Florida and across the states, raising families, balancing marriage, career/business, living the American Dream and trying to fit in with their obvious cultural difference.

Maxine J. Tulloch, the Executive Producer says the show will be entertaining and boost Caribbean entertainment. She also says the casting will be authentic, which will go against the practice by Hollywood playwrights to use American actors to mimic Caribbean accents and resulting in a product which exhumes fakeness.

The show will be available via TMC which is one of Florida's most innovative and diverse media production provider. TMC production normally focuses on reaching Caribbean nationals residing in the USA, Canada, UK and the Caribbean Islands.

Tracy now wants her money returned. However Noddy while showing no remorse for his actions said.

"These ladies are just upset because dem feel like a dem mi shudda married to. Dem need fi accept say mi married and move on," he continued.

"When I met Tracy she was married, mi respect her because a she a mi baby mother but she nuh suppose to a carry we business to the paper. Mi never beg her nutten.

Alliance signed artiste Prince Pin, has released an official music video for his latest single Nuh tek Disrespect. The song is a clear war song which incites violence against any human who crosses his path in a way deemed as being negative to him.

Prince Pin is originally from Westmoreland Jamaica. The artiste is already showing similarities to his mentor Bounty Killer who made a name for himself in the early 90s via gun slinging lyrics like Kill Fi Fun, Nah Nuh Mercy, Lodge among others.

The song is beeped from start to finish, however no amount of beeping will ever get this song on the radio, because the broadcasting commission's rule strongly states that no beeps will be tolerated. Luckily there are places like Yardflex and Youtube which prevents these videos from going to waste. Tweet us your comments.

Dancehall artiste Tommy Lee Sparta was booked to appear at a Trinidadian concert last weekend, however Tommy Lee was literally the only person booked to appear, as no patron turned out to support the artiste.

According to sources, the venue was empty all night which resulted in the promoter informing the media that the concert was postponed. Sources in Trinidad said patrons decided not to attend the event, because they did not support Tommy Lee Sparta's demonic songs.

Several radio stations in Trinidad are said to have pulled his music from their playlists which eventually disconnected the artiste from his Trini fans... the end result is that not many Trinidadians are aware of Tommy Lee's music.

Sources close to the artiste have sought to counter the news coming from Trinidad regarding the concert. According such sources, Tommy lee Sparta was welcomed by the Trinidadians. However the show did not work out due to an upsurge in criminal activities in the particular area that the show was supposed to be held.

Note, Trinidad had carnival less than weeks ago... so how does that add up? Tommy Lee Sparta had previously told the media that he would no longer use the Demon moniker in his music. He also did a song recently targeting the children, citing that he wants to right his wrongs.

yellow-man.jpg

Jamaica's first dancehall superstar Yellowman ushered in a new era in reggae music. His early '80s success brought the popularity of toasting (reggae's equivalent of rapping) to a new level and helped establish dancehall as the wave of the future.

On April 23, 2013, 17 North Parade will unlock its vaults once again to unveil the latest Reggae Anthology, Yellowman's Young, Gifted & Yellow, from the undisputed king of dancehall. This powerful 2CD/DVD collection features 40 fully remastered essential tracks of both classic and obscure material throughout Yellowman's prolific career. As an added bonus, the deluxe package will include thorough liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawkes and a 25-minute DVD of Yellowman's 1988 electrifying live performance at Jamaica's longstanding annual music festival Sumfest. The first set of the anthology opens with his early '80s breakthrough hits like "Mad Over Me" recorded for Channel One, "Death of Barnabas," "Operation Eradication" and the infamously "slack" "Shorties." The second disc moves toward his later hits like "Who Can Make the Dance Ram" (a rewrite of "The Candy Man"), "Zungguzungguguzungguzeng" (one of Jamaica's most sampled songs to this day), "Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt" and a cover of Fats Domino's "Blueberry Hill."

Reid who went up against five other candidates in a controversial and vicious election, came out on top for the second year, despite numerous uncanny tactics used by some candidates to overthrow his leadership.

According to the CEAC, he was anti campaigned from all angles.

"Trust me this is the hardest election ever. After this term am just gonna focus on my degree and leave campus politics alone. They tried so hard to tarnish my character and undermine my accomplishments for the year. But I guess the real students recognized realness," Reid said.

Reid, his deputy GarrIzon and the One Link promotions team are largely credited for revolutionizing campus campaigns, using cheap banners and creative jingles to respond to expensive flyers and corporate financing.

Tuesday's victory in the UWI Guild elections marks the first that that a CEAC has retained power when the seat was contested. Several followers and candidates have since took to twitter to express their discontent over Reid's re-election to the post. However others claim that Reid remained humble during his tenure as CEAC and was never once overwhelmed by his power.

"Gramma is a good youth that's why mi sey Reid to Lead, is a youth wey nuh hype and him stay tru to the  thing. Some man get position and hype pon the same people who vote dem een but him nuh stay suh, dats y people rate him. Some a dem man ya wey a run just a look hype and gyal attention," Ryan Burrel a supporter of Miguel 'Gramma Zone' Reid said.

Chuck Fenda now has his own charity organisation called The Poor People Defender Foundation. According to the artiste he is going to do more for the poor.

"I am somebody who has endured harsh situations before getting my break into the music industry in the '90s, so I know how it feels to want things and can't afford it. That is why when I do music it's heartfelt because people can feel that my content is sincere. As the Poor People Defender, I always defend the rights of the poor, even when the positive message is not hot commercial, because somebody has to do it. But now mi just want to do more, so with this charity organisation that I am looking to start, I want to get more interactive with my people," Chuck Fenda said of his upcoming charity initiative.

The hundreds of homeless people lurking on the streets of downtown Kingston apparently got to Chuck Fenda's emotions.

"I have always given back whenever I am called upon, but I never really had a charity. But wah day ya mi a drive through downtown and mi see about 200 persons squatting on the streets, suh me a seh to miself, Jah know where is the Government? How come dem not paying attention to stuff like these? Suh mi decide seh mi a guh write a song about it. But when mi start write the song mi still nuh feel complete, is like one mind a seh yes wi preach about these things but Babylon not changing it. So I decided that I can personally play my little part to make a positive change," he told the media, and continued.

"One person can't do the entire job that needs to be done, but one person can spark a movement. They have a little slang that says practise what you preach, and so as a man that is always preaching against injustice and poverty and pleading the cause of poor people, I am making that move to practise what I preach by giving back. So if other people who duh music want to join me please do so, and the business people too, because this affects every Jamaican. Mi know seh record nah sell again like one time. But if me give a little out of my little and you give a little out of your little, we can help somebody else to have little, instead of some people have a lot and some people don't have none," he said.

Songs like Warning and It Hard are getting good attention at home and in Europe.

Dancehall artiste Raine Sevile and radio DJ Sparks, recently squared off on twitter after Sparks posted controversial pictures of Konshens and Raine Seville on her blog. The DJ also attempted ignite the controversy by stating that neither Konshens nor Raine Seville wanted to speak to her on the issue.

Raine took to twitter to express her discontent with Spark's comment on the blog and warned her not to 'draw her out'. However in quick succession, there was a response by Sparks, who apparently has a lot of time on her hands to be sending idle tweets and blogging about artistes.

According to Sparks, if Raine wasn't bouncing about like a ball, people would not have her name as a topic of discussion. Some persons have since commented that Sparks was out of line, citing that as a media personality she was unprofessional, while others have condemned both Raine Seville and Konshens for releasing the pictures in the first place.

Raine Seville later spoke to the media and took full responsibility for her actions; she also said the pictures were simply for entertainment and a teaser for her upcoming collaboration.

The artistes are said to be promoting a new single called Settle Down, however if Sparks is as petty as she appears to be, we doubt any song for Raine Seville will be in her playlist anytime soon.

In a sensational conclusion of the 2013 Boys and Girls' Cham-pionships, Holmwood Technical High came from well behind at the National Stadium to clip defending champions Edwin Allen High for the girls' title, while Calabar High easily pushed aside JC and KC to retain the boys' crown.

The meet pulled a huge audience turnout and their money was well spent as patrons got a chance to whitness 18 records falling on the final day and 30 overall, Holmwood wore down long-time leaders Edwin Allen, took the lead in mid-afternoon and came away with a narrow victory. Honestly Edwin Allen should not shed a tear because they literally had the title and gave it away. Who leads by over 50 points in the first day then loses by five on the final day at Champs? A commenter had predicted earlier Saturday morning that the only way Edwin Allen could lose Champs, was if they didn't turn out to participate...well obviously they did not.

The Maurice Wilson-coached Holmwood tallied 310.5 points to regain the title, their 10th in 11 years with Edwin Allen on 305.5. The top five was completed by St Jago (208), Vere Technical (202) and Hydel (157.50).

On the boys' side, Calabar had just too much all round quality for their rivals and won their 23rd title while Jamaica College (JC) surprised Kingston College (KC) to take second spot. The top five: Calabar - 299, JC 258.5, KC 247.5, Wolmer's Boys 121, St Jago 107.

"Today, I was going through music as usual and my phone buzzed, it was an email. It turned out not be a typical email, but a pic that almost blew my mind. I had to look at the pic a few times. Konshens and Raine Seville O_o. Who saw this coming? Certainly, not me. I responded to the sender, asking, 'ok is which video this for', I was told in no uncertain manner that it was not for a video. I was informed that more pictures would be forthcoming. I was speculative. I asserted that this had to be from a video, perhaps 'No Hesitation', after I had sent off the email, I remembered that that video was already out. I couldn't recall, at the time of writing, a Raine Seville Konshens combo. I reached out to Konshens, no response. Tried his management, no response. Called Raine Seville and she had no comment and promptly clicked the phone in my ear. Well, so mi get it ah so mi give it," ZJ Sparks said under the pictures she posted.

Rumor has it they the artistes have a song to be released called SETTLE DOWN.

Former participant in Vybz kartel's reality show Techa's Pet is even getting raunchier than ever. The stripper who calls herself New York was recently on BBM exposing her goodies to the public.

Known to perform acrobatic stunts in the clubs, the stripper placed a Heineken bottle between her anal area and exposed her body to surprised persons on her blackberry messenger who began to share the pictures online.

DJ/Producer Baauer may be Harlem shaking all the way to the courthouse, after two artistes claim that the Mad Decent-signed DJ, unlawfully used their samples.

One of the artists claiming to be unlawfully sampled is Hector "El Father" Delgado, whose voice is used at the beginning of the track.

Hector Delgado's manager tells the New York Times:

"We can turn around and stop that song. That's a clear breaking of intellectual property rights".

Baauer is also accused of unlawfully sampling Philly rapper Jason Musson's "Miller Time."

Currently, Mad Decent didn't pull the licenses for either sample and will probably be in court putting up big bucks for their copyright infringement.

The Harlem Shake became a worldwide dance craze in a matter of days and has given Baauer global popularity in a fairly short commercial stint. In Jamaica alone there are hundreds of versions of the popular Harlem Shake videos.

I Octane now represents both Digicel and Busta soft drink as brand ambassador. The Reggae was selected by Busta soft drink as their first Jamaican entertainer brand ambassador.

I- Octane's publicist/manager Ray Alexander says.

"I-Octane has a clean image and he is corporate friendly. He has a good management team of about 10 persons and we ensure that we push the brand in the best way possible. The brand is standing up, and we always try to keep ourselves away from associating with certain negative elements," Ray Alexander said.

According to I-Octane the endorsement is a great accomplishment.

"It's a good look for me and reggae music, it opens doors for me, reggae music and other artistes. Music for me is an everyday thing and the companies see that and respect my work ethics. These endorsements can hopefully break barriers for the local music industry," I-Octane said.

The Busta contract will last for one year.

Local DJs have blasted songwriter and publisher Ruddy Isaacs comments stating that local DJs should pay to play songs.

The DJs in response to Isaacs, claim that artistes would not be reaping benefits from their songs without them.

dymond-2012C.jpg
"My question is this, and I am not being disrespectful because you (Ruddy) are an elder, but I want to ask, if the artiste record a song and keep it to himself and the DJ does not play it, will you make any money from it?" ZJ Dymond asked.

However, the brother of the late reggae icon Gregory Isaacs was quick to respond stating that.

"The radio station pay dem fi play and everybody wey play music publicly and nuh have nuh license, fi pay for it...Yu a bruck the law if you don't pay the societies. A artistes mek people know unno to, go on the stage and don't play any music and see what happens. So give back to the artistes. Promoters and the selectors must pay to play music, because the selectors collect money to play songs," Ruddy Isaacs said.

Irie FM's DJ Amber also had an objection.

"The copyright issue should be between the artistes and the record labels. I don't think promoters should pay an additional cost to what we are already paying, this never used to happen over the years so why now? And quite frankly, the artistes stand to gain more from us playing their music, it boosts their popularity and let record labels notice them. This music business is becoming too technical and about money," she said.

In adding some clarity to the situation, collection organisation, JAMMS, told STAR that promoters are the ones who should be paying and not the DJs/ selectors.

"Event promoters are the persons responsible for obtaining the required copyright permit to ensure that events are complying with the relevant provisions of copyright laws governing the playing of recorded music publicly. As the beneficial owners of the event, the promoter must seek to have in place all the required licenses, permits and consents that are needed to ensure that the event is meeting all legal obligations," the organization said.

This staging of the annual Appleton MISS UWI pageant marks the first time that the event was featured on national television. And Cultural Entertainment and Affairs Chairperson Miguel Reid hopes that at least one contestant will move on to represent the island in a major pageant.

"My aim is not to do an event which will just be a school pageant. I want a contest to excel to the point where she can represent Jamaica and perhaps bring home a world title. That is why team employed the necessary professionals to properly groom the contestants. We also gave them the opportunity Jamaica from all cultural perspectives so that they can be more culturally grounded and aware. But I guess I can't say everything people will have to just turn up at the pageant this Sunday evening and see for themselves" Reid said.

The launch of a Miss UWI YouTube channel was also announced. The channel features short features of the finalists, including their notorious Limo tour of the University campus and their much talked about photo shoot.

The Miss UWI Pageant will take place this Sunday March 10, 2013 at the UWI Regional Headquarters and is slated to Start at 7:30pm. Tickets will cost patrons $450 presold and $700 VIP.  Entertainment and refreshment will be available at the venue.


The Photo Shoot


The Limo tour






French Montana and Nicki Minaj unleashed the "Freaks" in a provocative video over a dancehall track Murder She Wrote, originally performed by Chakka Demus and Pliers. The Bad Boy rapper and the Young Money diva shot the clip last month in L.A. with director Eif Rivera.

Nicki Minaj heats up the screen in a gold Jeremy Scott jacket, McQueen leggings, and pasties. The song's producer, Rico Love, makes a cameo and there is plenty of eye candy for the fellas, including a revelation of her fully erect breasts.

"She's the hottest chick to come out, I'm the hottest dude to come out of my city in a long time so I'm proud of everything she's doing," French said of Nicki. "She is one of the best to do it as a female artist, nothing but respect for her."

The dancehall-infused record, which samples Chaka Demus & Pliers' "Murder She Wrote" and Li'l Vicious and Doug E. Fresh's "Freaks," is set to appear on French's debut Excuse My French, due May 21.

Even a section of the song saw French Montana rapping in Chakka Demus's deejay flow.

According to this podcaster, close friend of Hugo Chavez, the iconic Fidel Castro, had confided in Chavez that his enemies could infect him with cancer. Therefore he should be mindful of the chefs that he ate from and the doctors that he trusted.

The podcaster also postulates that he has proof that America has developed ways and means to induce persons with cancer. According to him, the U.S has tried cancerous experiments on lab rats in recent times, in an effort to ascertain how fast the cancer would take to kill humans.

He also listed a host of Latin presidents/leaders whom have died as a result of cancer. To him this is no coincidence; however he also believes if Hugo Chavez had listened to Fidel Castro's so called warning, he would have still been alive today.

Vice-President Nicolas Maduro spoke of a plot against Venezuela, saying he had no doubt that Mr Chavez's cancer, first diagnosed in 2011, had been induced by foul play by Venezuela's enemies - the US promptly rejected the accusations as "absurd".

He said a scientific commission could one day investigate whether Mr Chavez's illness was brought about by what he called an enemy attack.

Two US diplomats had been expelled from the country for spying on Venezuela's military, he added.

A statement by the military issued after Mr Chavez's death said it would protect the sovereignty, integrity and security of the country. It would remain loyal to the vice-president and to parliament, it added, urging people to remain calm.

Mr Jaua said a procession would carry Mr Chavez's body to the Military Academy in Caracas on Wednesday, where it will lie in state until Friday to allow his supporters to pay their respects.




The Iconic Hugo Chavez is dead!!

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has died aged 58, after 14 years in power.

Mr Chavez had been seriously ill with cancer for more than a year, undergoing several operations in Cuba.

Crowds of supporters gathered outside the Caracas hospital where he died, chanting "We are all Chavez!"

A self-proclaimed revolutionary, Hugo Chavez was a controversial figure in Venezuela and on the world stage. A staunch critic of the US, he inspired a left-wing revival across Latin America.

Following his death, Vice-President Nicolas Maduro will assume the presidency until an election is held within 30 days, Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said.

"A great leader has left us, a father"

Mourner in Caracas

"It is the mandate that Comandante President Hugo Chavez gave us," Mr Jaua told state television, adding that Mr Maduro would also be the candidate of the governing United Socialist Party (PSUV).

It was not immediately clear when the election would take place.

Mr Chavez's illness prevented him from taking the oath of office after he was re-elected for a fourth term in October.

The exact nature of his cancer was never officially disclosed, leading to continuing speculation about his health, and he had not been seen in public for several months.

Vice-president Nicolas Maduro was emotional as he announced Hugo Chavez's death

Seven days of national mourning have been declared and his body will lie in state until a funeral on Friday.

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles, whom Mr Chavez defeated in October's election, called on the government to "act in strict accordance with its constitutional duties".

Mr Capriles offered his condolences to Mr Chavez's family, saying "we were adversaries, but never enemies".

'Revolutionary legacy'

A former paratrooper, Hugo Chavez burst onto Venezuela's national stage in 1992 when he led a failed military coup.

After two years in prison he returned to politics and was swept to power in a 1998 election.

A self-proclaimed socialist and revolutionary, he won enduring support among the poor and repeated election victories by using Venezuela's oil wealth to pursue socialist policies.

But his opponents accused him of mishandling the economy and taking the country towards dictatorship.

Internationally, he was a staunch critic of US "imperialism" and accused Washington of backing a failed coup against him in 2002.

In Tuesday's televised address, a tearful Mr Maduro said the president had passed away "after battling a tough illness for nearly two years".





Reggae is world music, Rap is Black music?

Webmin

People tend to assume that rap music is bigger than reggae music due to the fact that rap music is more commercialized. However this is due to the power of the American media. Jamaica is a small island that does not have that strong media backing, financial power and commercial strength of America.

Therefore a Jamaican artiste might be doing good songs consistently and has no recognition in the U.S market because he does not have the necessary resources to promote there. However in the European countries which are less difficult to travel and spread music, you will find that several of Jamaica's talents are very popular and can pull more than 60,000 patrons to a venue... and by people I mean all races. In some cases predominantly Caucasians, because unlike rap music, Reggae music appears to be a universal language of love and peace.

Reggae music has long transcended across the barriers of racism, which is why the genre has several different races producing reggae music on their own, without receiving opposition from the reggae industry.

There are notable reggae artistes from different races and countries. Japanese like Ackee and Saltfish which named themselves from the Jamaican national dish, there is Jewish reggae artiste Matisyahu, there is German reggae artiste Gentleman, there is Italian reggae artiste Alberosie, the Puerto Ricans have made an entire genre from Reggae dancehall called Reggaeton and the list goes on and on.

This is why the German Saturn ad glamorized the Jamaican flag recently in a controversial ad. Some critics say the ad was disrespectful because a small Jamaican flag was burnt to tell a story.

However the damaged Jamaican flag was also replaced by an even bigger Jamaican flag which was released from the air above a huge sky scraper.

How many countries can boast that their flag is idolized in this manner? Some countries bigger than Jamaica in size are not even recognized internationally. And Jamaica's international recognition is based on the power and global impact of reggae music.

As it relates to rap music, the most successful Caucasian rap artiste is Slim Shady and his emergence seemed taboo to the rap community. After years of trying to prove himself to the black community and rap industry, he finally paved the way for artistes like Yelawolf, Paul Wall, Bubba Sparks among others.

However despite the emergence of such Caucasian rappers, rap music is still seen as "Black Music"... it is still limited in its reach. This limitation might be political or prejudice. However the fact is that, rap music has not successfully transcended its barriers, despite all that commercial backing from an extremely strong media... unlike reggae music which is a globally accepted product. Even American rap legend Snoop Lion is now a reggae artiste an Jim Jones, recently remixed a song on an authentic reggae beat.

50 Cent was booed of stage at the Reading Festival in England a few years ago and the legendary Jay - Z received a poor response at a similar event years prior to 50 Cent's experience, because the audience was out of tune with rap music. This shows that rap music might be one of the most popular genres in the United States. However on the world stage, reggae music is the real deal.

Reggae artistes like Luciano and Fantan Mojah are painted on the house of international footballer  Florent Johan Malouda... glamorized like musical gods. So the next time somebody compares rap music and reggae music, telling you that sales are low for reggae music and that numbers don't lie.

Let them know that "the world is ultimate the stage" let them do a fanbase check and see which genres has crossed the most borders and has be culturally accepted.

In a recent interview with Sway online, rap legend Jay-z was seemingly unhappy with the fact that rap music is still only seen as black music, despite so many years of fighting to break the barriers. He is quoted as saying.

"Last night I performed at the University of Arizona, I had a ball!! Through all the excitement and joking around (as well as the technical difficulties) I missed out on the opportunity to say something important.

On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson. I thought that to be the oddest pairing EVER but, soon realized, it's what I've always professed..There is NO such thing as BLACK music or WHITE music only GOOD or BAD music... I think concerts like this should happen more often. ( Outside of the one or 2 festivals a year or "Zootopia") I'm putting that into the universe..next up Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!!

Sorry I don't "Tweet" (do I?) so this will have to do.

Love," He said.

Don't mean to brag, but the reggae genre has long shared the same stage with just about any genre that the world has to offer. In the process standing out, and standing on its own twos. Reggae icon Bob Marley is literally a hero in several countries around the word. Not so sure about a hero status, for rap legends.

Internationally acclaimed dancehall artiste David "Mavado" Brooks makes history as the first Caribbean artist to receive an exclusive video premiere on Billboard, with his new single Take It featuring Karian Sang.

Distributed by Zojak World Wide and produced by Troyton Music, the blockbuster dancehall pop single debuted back in September and has been steadily gaining momentum on the international market, peaking at #1 on the BBC 1Xtra and Choice-FM charts in December, and also hitting #1 on CHRY 105.5FM in Toronto. The track also steams up airwaves in South Florida on Miami's hit station WEDR-99Jamz, and continues to enjoy airplay on reggae specialty programming, globally.

"Zojak World Wide/Troyton Music utilized top tier radio DJ pools to get the track played in major markets," states Zoe Espitia, CEO of Zojak World Wide.

"The company also secured radio interviews with commercial stations in the US and Canada, and enlisted Rhona Fox of Fox Fuse as the PR for the video."

Signed to We The Best/YMCMB, Mavado continues to thrill dancehall fans by staying true to the genre, despite his evolving move beyond dancehall borders. "Now aligned with a powerful hip-hop conglomerate, Mavado nonetheless has pledged allegiance to the music that birthed his career," writes Billboard journalist Patricia Meschino, in the exclusive premiere on March 4, 2013.

"Take It" was released internationally by Zojak World Wide and is available on iTunes and all major e-tailers worldwide. For more information on Zojak World Wide, log on to zojakworldwide.com

Rohan Marley is again living the life of a bachelor after breaking off his engagement to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana.

The reggae royalty-former American football player-entrepreneur was previously in a relationship with R&B singer Lauryn Hill, with whom he had five children.

In a recent interview with Open Magazine, Marley stated that he still had unresolved feelings for Lauryn Hill.

"I feel sad that I loved her so much and I faltered in expressing it to her somehow. It was my fault that she did not understand how I felt, and it was sad that we did not work out in that relationship sense. I was heartbroken for a long time," he said.

Commenting on his failed engagement to the Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana he said.

"Now, I am just engaged to myself. It is tough, but we are not to ask ourselves, 'Could you be loved?' but to say, 'Yes, I am loved," he said.

Marley was only nine years old when his father passed on at age 36.

Remember that much talked about dress that R&B singer Kelly Rowland wore to the Grammy Awards? Well former Dancehall Queen Keiva, decided to bite her style by copying the same design and color for her outfit to a recently concluded party.

While we admire Keiva's efforts and we recognize the talent of her local dress maker. We must say...no Keiva those breasts are not stiff enough to be exposed in that manner.

Sure your skin looked clean enough, but if you are going up against Kelly Rowland, you have to come way better than that...hence no sagging will be tolerated.

Rumors are circulating that Ice T released a letter saying this.

"I can't unbreak my heart, but I can take that azz back tho" said an obviously hurt Ice T in front of a courthouse after filing for divorce from his wife of 11 years after pictures of her kissing a fan surfaced online.

"She can have the money, the house, but them t*tties is mine" Ice T said after explaining that hitting her where it hurts will do more damage than leaving her broke ever would. "I'ma let her start March off with nobody and no body." Ice T wants her assets delivered to the doorstep of his New Jersey estate no later than March 1st or any monetary support Coco would receive from the divorce will be withdrawn.

However in a recent statement a representative for Coco, 33, insisted that despite the ongoing cheating scandal surrounding the glamour model and Oakland rapper AP.9, the Coco and Ice T are stronger than ever.

"Ice and Coco are doing totally fine, the separation rumors are false," Coco's rep told Rumorfix.com. "Those papers are fake. They are not addressing rumors or the photos (of her posing with that rapper) and are moving forward happily."

Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has penned five-page letter which he released to the public yesterday. The letter, suggests that the police have masterminded a malicious and sustained smear campaign that is quite damaging to the progress of his murder cases and reputation. The letter begins: "This is Adidja Palmer stating the facts":

In 2011, I was charged for murder by way of a statement which indicated that I had ordered Lenburgh McDonald to murder Barrington 'Bossie' Burton.

Weeks later, said witness gave a statement to the Public Defender saying that he was physically assaulted and threatened by the police to say that I was involved in 'Bossie' Burton's death. Days later, he gave another statement to the Public Defender saying that since he recanted the first statement, he has been getting death threats via calls to his phone.

Days after my first murder charge, I was charged with another murder (Clive 'Lizard' Williams). In this case, the police (by way of a Senior Superintendent who was later charged with "attempting to pervert the course of justice" in a separate incident) campaigned every Monday morning on a certain TV station claiming they had DNA evidence, which came back 7 months later as negative. They also led the public to believe that they had video tape of me and my co-accused murdering Williams. I would like to add that the police made a lot of damaging remarks against me. A most notable one would be "since his arrest, the community is a safer place". He said.

Vybz kartel believes he made enemies in high places that are trying to see him put away for life. Tweet us your comments.
