Nicki Minaj Unintentionally Embarrasses Cuban Doll For Butchering Her Lyrics


Nicki Minaj says she didn’t intentionally embarrassed Cuban Doll for butchering her lyrics on Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth (Remix).”

Nicki Minaj’s Beam Me Up Scotty has been making strides in the industry, and along with fans and followers, other rappers have received the new release with positive comments and feedback.

Perhaps Cuban Doll is a big fan of the queen’s new release as on Saturday, May 22, she made a post on Instagram and captioned it with what she perceived to be a quote from Nicki’s remix of Skillibeng‘s “Crocodile Teeth”, an addition to the “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape.

The “Let It Blow” rapper posted a shot of her squatting in a bodysuit and heels. “My type of gal wanna know da opps out,” she captioned.

Nicki Minaj slid into the comments section of the post to correct the young rapper, typing out the correct lyrics.

“Might tek a gyal man, I know da opps out,” she wrote. Perhaps no offense was taken by Cuban Doll as she edited the caption and basically went on with her day.

“Beam Me Up Scotty” was released on all streaming services for the first time last week. The “Moment 4 Life” rapper added three new songs to the mixtape; “Seeing Green” ft. Lil Wayne and Drake, “Fractions,” and a remix of Dancehall artiste Skillibeng’s hit record “Crocodile Teeth.”

While it is not new for the Trinidadian rapper to tap into her Caribbean side in her songs, perhaps it is the dialect that sparked the confusion for Cuban Doll.

Nicki Minaj later clarified that her intention was not to embarrassed the young rapper, but just to correct her. “I hope y’all know I love Cuban,” Nicki wrote on her IG Story. “I was having fun w|her. I don’t try 2 embarrass ppl I f** wit. That’s corny. I’ll never correct a lyric ever again chile. Boom.”

Still, the Barbz are making a big deal of the mishap, exclaiming that Nicki’s lyrics were butchered by the 23-year-old rapper.

“If you don’t understand patois just use another verse bc girl,” one person suggested. Another adds, “Just archive the whole post,” while another ordered, “Say my queen lyrics properly or don’t say it at all.”

Cuban Doll was quick to make the corrections, and has so far made no comments on the issue.

Rihanna & Nicki Minaj Starts Following Each Other On IG Again, Are They Working On New Music?


Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are following each other again as the Queen rapper prepares to make her return to music.

On Monday, Nicki Minaj sent her fans into a frenzy when she posted for the first time in a while, seemingly announcing her highly anticipated return to music. The Young Money rapper who took a hiatus from the music after starting her family has kept fans wondering when she would be back ever since she announced her retirement in 2019. While she has been on a few features, we are yet to see the rapper officially re-emerge with a solo single.

Barbz may have prompted Nicki’s impromptu return after they got the #LLCParty hashtag trending on Twitter last night, leading the fan-favorite track by Minaj to become her best performing single of 2021 overnight. “LLC,” which was released as part of the rapper’s 2018 Queen album, entered the Top 30 on the US iTunes chart, which is a new peak.

Nicki Minaj took to Instagram on Monday (May 10) to post a seductive photo of herself covering her lady parts with cushions while sitting on an office desk. In the caption, the rapper wrote “FRIDAY,” leading fans to believe that the rapper has something in store for them. Along with the pleasant surprise of Nicki’s return, it turns out the rapper is also following Rihanna again and vice versa.

The Queen Radio star and Fenty Beauty boss have not been following each other on Instagram for the last couple of years. Fans suspect that the Bajan superstar unfollowed the rapper around the time she was feuding with Remy Ma, but all that seems to be a thing of the past now that they have both hit that follow button again.

Fans are speculating that the Caribbean superstars reuniting on the gram may be a sign that they’re about to drop a new song together. Given Rihanna’s similar musical hiatus, no one is quite bold enough to get their hopes up about that. However, one can dream.

Skillibeng Teases “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle With Nicki Minaj


Skillibeng teases his upcoming “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle with Nicki Minaj.

Ever since emerging on the scene, Skillibeng has shown all the qualities of becoming a master of the dancehall genre. He’s managed to cop some impressive collaborations along the way, including top dancehall acts like Dre Island, Tommy Lee Sparta, and dancehall superstar Popcaan. Now he’s looking to take his music to an international level and has announced his biggest potential upcoming collab to date, a freestyle remix of his massive hit “Crocodile Teeth” with multi-platinum rapper Nicki Minaj.

He revealed the exciting news on Instagram with the caption: “50,000 comments.” Fans immediately began to react to the news. Lila Ike, who he has a track with, said: “Run dat fuuuuh,” while Shenseea and Shaneil Muir added flame emojis to show their support while ShenYeng calls it a “big look”. The post, which was made a short while ago today, May 8, has already been liked over 50,000 times.

The track has already been massively successful on YouTube and has already brought in over 18 million views since it was released in October 2020. Just last week, Canadian rapper Tory teased a new track he recorded on the Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth” riddim, an indicator of how popular the track keeps getting.

Lanez shared a clip of the track on Instagram and captioned it “@skillibeng #CrocodileTeeth …… should I drop this or leave this in the stash? … I think it’s fire tho … word to @ovoroxx cornrows.” The Esyde artist has enjoyed mostly positive feedback from fans ever since his break out hit “Brik Pan Brik” in 2019. That song has about seven million views.

Nicki Minaj, who has strong Caribbean roots through her birthplace Trinidad, has been quiet for a while now since she’s chosen to focus on her new family, but if she’s thinking about making a come back soon, then this collaboration is sure to produce some heat.

While Skillibeng is relatively new to the music, Nicki Minaj has been around for over a decade and is to date one of the most commercially successful rappers of all-time and perhaps the most success female rapper ever. She has sold over 137 million records worldwide. Despite not releasing any new music this year, her song “LLC” climb to No. 1 on the chart after her fans started pushing the single.

He has visited the island several times and has worked with local acts such as Buju Banton on the remix for “Trust,” Popcaan on Willie X.O’s “Comfort You,” Keznamdi through “City Lock,” and Kranium through their smash hit “We Can.” Tory’s hit “Luv” was also fashioned off Tanto Metro and Devonte’s 90s release “Everyone Falls In Love.” Aside from his dancehall refixes, Tory has also fashioned an entire mixtape catalog off reworking popular hip-hop tracks.

Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth” has also earned him a major cosign from another Canadian native and one of the most decorated entertainers of the modern era, Drake. The 6God shared an image of himself listening to the track to his Instagram Story.

“Crocodile Teeth” was released in September 2020 and has been receiving heavy rotation in Jamaica and around the world. The official music video for the song has garnered more than 18 million views on YouTube.

Mavado, Masicka Reacts To PM Holness Blaming Dancehall Lyrics For High Crimes In Jamaica


Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness is criticized for his comments in the Houses of Parliament, which says that entertainers who glorify violence in their songs are contributing to the high levels of violence in the country.

There was widespread backlash from Jamaicans locally and in the Diaspora as many called the Prime Minister a hypocrite for using music as a scapegoat for his inability to lead a successful crime plan to slow the rate of murders on the island.

However, Prime Minister Andrew Holness says entertainers are free to sing about anything they want but that they should be conscientious and remember they have a duty to place their music in context.

“In our music and our culture, in as much as you are free to reflect what is happening in the society, you also have a duty to place it in context,” Holness said. “Dat yuh tek up the AK-47 and tun it inna a man head … That is not right. And though you have the protection of the constitution to sing about it, you also have a duty to the children who are listening to you.”

Jamaica recorded 1300 killings in 2020 and is among the countries in the Latin and Caribbean region with the highest homicide rate of 46.5 per 100,000 people. Jamaicans are particularly furious at the Prime Minister, who, while being a critic of dancehall, revels in the names and labels given to him emanating from dancehall culture.

Bounty Killer, PM Andrew Holness and Tony Rebel

One of those is the fact that the Prime Minister is one known to wear his green Clarks- a style of shoes popular in dancehall. The Prime Minister also goes by a moniker “Bro Gad” – a term that Daddy1 from the 6IX crew in Montego Bay coined and has since been synonymous with scammers and gang leaders. In spite of this, the Prime Minister proudly named his Twitter account “Hon. Bro Gad,” and even sported hats and shirts with the Moniker.

That’s not the only thing that they are upset about, including artists who voiced their thoughts. Many are angry that the Prime Minister proudly used the same singers his comments were directed to create dubplates- musical jingles for his election campaign that saw him winning in a landslide victory.

Many artists lashed out at the Prime Minister for his comments, including Mavado, who pointed out that entertainers are not voted in to lead, and it isn’t their job to control crime.

“Why is this man blaming crime on music every prime minister that the ppl vote in when dem get them Blood**tt seat to work Dem fail and come point fingers well we pointing right back at you, what about all the grants dat you and your parliamentarians get to take care of crime billions,” Mavado asked. “that has nothing to do with entertainment no one voted for us to lead that’s your job! what u need to do is clean up your corrupted Goverment and stop intimidate the people! Tyad a you.”

Masicka, who did a dub using his “Just A Minute,” single for the Prime Minister during the last election called “Win It in A Minute” dub, also reacted to Andrew Holness’s comments admitting that he never voted and never will.

“Bro gad. Boy Jamaicaa sorry fi uno. Once gunman song stop the crime stop fi true,” he said. “Educate uno self ghetto utes make some money. Protect uno self ghetto and family. Educate ddem too. Illiteracy a the reason we just follow everything. Never vote, never will.”

Tanya Stephens also reacted to the Prime Minister’s comments by reposting a screenshot of the PM’s comment with the caption “a bit of early morning humour.”

Many Jamaicans took to social media as they added their two cents to the unfolding drama that will likely further the rift between the entertainment industry and the government.

One person said, “violence been here before msic…so why u want to mess up the culture cause u can’t control the crime rate. Music is not the problem. It’s poverty and they know that but they playing smart. Hoping the people will be dumb enough to accept it.”

Meanwhile, there were voices in defense of the Prime Minister as some asked “when or where did the PM blame dancehall for crime and violence,” as they pointed out that the PM’s comments were directed to some entertainers.

The Prime Minister was joined by a number of other parliamentarians who noted their disappointment at the spate of killings over the weekend, including the death of a 20- year old- Khanice Jackson, who went missing last week then her body was found. She was speculated to be raped then murdered.

Police later arrested and charged her neighbor, 50-year-old Robert Fowler, who confessed to the killing. Police say Fowler confessed that he killed the young lady at his house after pretending that he forgot his work tools at home. He was known to her and her family and would regularly offer to drop her at work as he also worked in the same area in Cross Roads, Kingston. Police say Fowler kept her body at the house all day and in the night dumped it in a local swampy area. She was found with just a top and her underwear was missing.

The Minister of Gender Affairs, Olivia Babsy Grange, in lamenting the deaths of women, said domestic violence is an epidemic in Jamaica.

“It is on a sombre note and with pain in my heart that I stand to give voice to the now suppressed voices of our sisters who have been brutally killed in the epidemic of domestic violence in our country. Killed because some man felt he had the right to decide whom she should love or that she should continue in an abusive relationship, regardless. Killed because she did not have the physical strength to fight back, as, intimidated and threatened, she kept silence till the moment of her death,” Grange said.

“If we all cannot protect our women and girls, our most vulnerable, from such horrible acts of violence, how do we even see ourselves as a civilised society? At what point do we say enough is enough?,” Grange asked fellow elected representatives.

Justin Bieber On If He’s Influenced By Reggae/Dancehall, “The Answer Is Yes”


Justin Bieber says he is influenced by reggae/dancehall music but failed to meet the low bar in giving Jamaican music its proper credit.

As a world advocate for reggae and dancehall music and Jamaica as a whole, DJ Khaled never fails to give credit to dancehall culture, which is not only a part of his roots but has spawned multiple hits for him. Khaled recently had the opportunity to interview Justin Bieber amidst the release of his latest album, Justice, and the hitmaking producer asked the pop superstar about dancehall’s influence on his own music.

Justin Bieber sparked some controversy back in 2015 with his monstrous comeback hit “Sorry” from his album Purpose. The popular track had that rhythmic dancehall flavor and bassline, and its accompanying music video featured styles and dances from dancehall culture. What most local dancehall artists and fans took issue with was the fact that the genre was never credited at any opportunity for its obvious influence on the record.

The producer behind the No. 1 track regularly dabbles in dancehall and reggae sounds and has often tipped his hat to the culture for influencing his productions. From interviews to award stages, Skrillex laments his fandom of the commonly-sampled genre time and time again. However, as if prohibited to do so, the word “dancehall” has never publicly escaped artists like Justin Bieber’s lips. DJ Khaled asked about “Sorry,” particularly during his recent interview with the pop superstar on his First One with DJ Khaled podcast on Amazon Music.

“The record ‘Sorry,’ it has that dancehall feel. I love Jamaica. I love reggae, I love dancehall music. It wouldn’t be no DJ Khaled if Khaled didn’t break out of dancehall. It’s part of my story and who I am,” Khaled said. “What inspired you to make that record? Are you influenced by reggae music/dancehall music?”

In response, Justin told Khaled, “So the answer is yes. I am inspired by really all music but in particular I love island music. I love the feel of just the percussion, you know, I’m a drummer so that percussion it moves me. It makes me want to dance.”

“I wanna make music for the world,” Bieber continues. “I don’t want to get caught up being too isolated. I want to make music that impacts everybody of all cultures, all ethnicities, all shapes and sizes.”

Justin, who is a self-taught musician, has been playing the drums since he was a toddler. After teaming up with several renowned music producers influenced by reggae and dancehall sounds, he has created a number of similar dancehall flavored records – all of which went unattributed to the originating culture.

One of the major producers that Justin has worked with in the past who has faced similar criticism is Major Lazer, a group that is undoubtedly the product of an amalgamation of genres like dancehall, Afro-beats, EDM, and more. While one of its members is Jamaican, admitting the influence of dancehall on their records has seemed to be as difficult for them as it is for Justin. They too have faced backlash for cultural appropriation in addition to artists like Drake and Kanye West.

The artists who tend to give dancehall the respect it deserves pretty much grew up on it themselves as Caribbean natives. Namely, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj often highlight the undeniable impact of the genre and raise awareness of its prior existence.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” which was one of the biggest records of 2015, broke a number of streaming records in multiple regions, and the visuals currently boast more than 3.5 billion views on YouTube, ranking as the platform’s 13th most viewed video. It unquestionably catalyzed the renewed interest in dancehall-influenced mainstream music and was the start of an onslaught of tracks by various artists that were clearly products of dancehall culture.

As for when dancehall will actually be named by some mainstream artists as a major influence and stop being whitewashed by mainstream music media with empty terms like “Island music,” “Tropical House,” and “Caribbean-flavored,” we will have to wait and see.

Busta Rhymes – Deep Thought Lyrics


[Intro: Busta Rhymes]
Baby, you want me?
Well, I want you, too
You can have me
If I can have you, too
Come to mommy
Let me relax you
Let me comfort you
In deep thought, baby?
Tell me what’s on your mind
Yo, yo, yo

[Verse]
Smoking cigarettes, blow the smoke out
Can’t believe the shit that’s happening to me
When I need a place to be tranquil, meditate, think ’bout what really matter
Go and rest my head on my shawty booby
She run her fingers through the new dread I’m growing
Peep the way my day might have been overwhelming, tryna rеlax a nigga
If you listening and you catch the picture
You might see mе laying ‘tween my shawty legs holding a glass of liquor
And she keep rubbing my head, asking me to talk to her, I don’t even respond
Hold my hand, middle finger, tickle my palm
My shawty stay relaxed, she understand a nigga going through something
When I’m at home, ain’t no never need for the fronting
My voice going, I’m sounding like a frog, doing shows back to back
Partially why niggas reluctant to talk
They get their way when niggas start rubbing my hand, massaging my back
They start confessing to all the shit I was taught
Applying what I was taught to the point if you ain’t right, I will slap you
While becoming your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper
Then it all feels like the shit was in vainness, but I’m bringing it harder
Losing Chris Lighty and then losin’ my father
I’m bittersweet, so I promised my momma I’ma become a martyr
And every day that pass, I move a little smarter
That’s why I work so hard, I try expanding business a little larger
To get my son a Range and my daughter a Charger
But I feel cheated ’cause Chris and my father, they ain’t right here to see it (Wow son)

Well like I said, ’cause they ain’t right here to see it
Despite my heart was suffered, I’m still undefeated
I give ’em what they need and got ’em wildin’ ’til this niggas is coo-coo
We ain’t screaming “Violator” like we used to
You ask me what’s on my mind, baby, well I’ma serve you
There ain’t no statue of limitation when it comes to murder
You ever heard a nigga like me stay on top of shit
Won’t let it rest ’til we get to the bottom of it
Yeah, and they know who I’m talking to
Because they Busta Rhymes fans, but probably not after this song is through
The f*ck I’m ‘posed to do?
When this be the shit that I be thinking when I’m ‘posed to be honest when I talk to my boo
My shawty probably mad
‘Cause I ain’t supposed to share these conversations when we sharing moments like this out the blue
But then I got her blessing so that I can share this with y’all
Because she feel the way I feel, a lot of others, too
In any event, this the shit I’m thinking
Some of the many things that I’ve got on my mind, shawty
That’s probably why I smoke and I keep on drinkin’
‘Cause I need closure for my mind, soul and my body
Good days and bad days is part of the process
Buildin’ with my shawty, escaping the nonsense
And though I continue to keep it honest, thought process is complex
To keep your balance and focus on progress
That be the concepts despite the fights internally fought
Those who were there for daddy, thanks for your support
And when I’m long-term thinking, see, the terms these niggas think on is short
They hate when I spot ’em, now they throwing me salt
That’s how my mind travel like I’m in a Caribbean resort
Ponderin’ on shit when I’m in deep thought (You and I—)


Dave – Location Lyrics

JAE5

[Chorus: Burna Boy]

No time, no
And my dawg is on probation
Another 5 years

Send me the location

Flight catching, train taking
Soon as my nigga off probation
Your boyfriend’s on a waiting ting
Looking for one wish, on a Ray J ting
I pree’d that girl, outrageous ting
But she can’t see ’cause I got shades and ting
Bare girls wanna throw shade and ting
No shade, what shade is your foundation in?
Darkest grey, the shade I’m in
49 more if your babes wants in
I had me a famous ting
Goals and tings, gains and tings
My house party a babe station
Girls wanna chase, it’s a status ting

[Chorus: Burna Boy]

Head so good, now I speak Gujarati
You hardly, pardon me, I’m laughing again

If you wanna see P’s, gotta pass on the ends
Came a long way from a park in the bends
To an ’18 plate, man’s parking a Benz
Far from the rest but I’m far from my best
Life is a lesson, I’m passing a test

I don’t want drama and I don’t want stress
My girl got finessed, Caribbean flex
Body and chest, take buddy in chest
Thank God more, I grew up with less
Juss to the right, Rapz to the left
Rj in the middle, got Cee to the death
Batch full of dogs with the 60’s vets

[Chorus: Burna Boy]
If you send me the location

‘Cause there’s diamonds on my chain
And there’s diamonds on my watch
Money moves, Off-White shoes

Had my mattress on the floor
No map, North Cap, bend it up
Gyal a ring-ring my cellular
Mi ‘ave big fat spliff pon me, nuh
Inna the big black Benz, pullin’ up
Please tell everybody to start pulling up

MoStack – What I Wanna Lyrics


[Intro]
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
ILLBLU
You know I party with savages
In the club and I rass up the cannabis
Rass and rass and rass ’em

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Verse 1]
I like to kiss and cuddle and what?
Still a baddaman pon da baddaman block
Big ass jacket in Dubai, don’t ask why
Pass me the keys let me drive
Cah you’ve been smoking too much skunk
Plus I drive better when I’m drunk
I treat the car like a go-kart
Wouldn’t-a bust that red light if I was sober
I don’t respect my olders
I do what I want you can’t tell me no
I said I’m gonna be a star girl I told you so
Don’t be that guy that owes me dough
Send my ‘ooter down there with the chrome-y chrome
She’s like “when are you free?”
Never bitch I cost, if you drop out me
That’s your loss, I switch countries like I switch socks
Pull up, pull up when I drop that gloss

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Verse 2]
I saw this gyal at the zebra crossing
Black and white girl man it felt like a zebra crossing (yo shawty)
She said “can I get a lift?”
My girl with the lisp, said can I get a kiss
Indian gyal said I’m a bloody ghost
‘Cause all I do is hola then I adiós
Hit the Caribbean store for some curry goat
She said my meat taste good so she sucked the bone
I’m with a white girl, dancing with some stamina
She a wine to bashment while I’m grabbing her
She be moving like she’s got some black in her
That was before I put my black in her
I’m living so single and free
I sit comfy, knowing no-one’s cheating on me
My gyal even put her arms around me
She so comfy, she even fart around me

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Bridge]
I could pull up in the car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Take a girl yard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Go hard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac

[Outro]
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
ILLBLU
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna


JUNGLEPUSSY – State Of The Union lyrics


You think you poppin’ cause your new chick low maintenance
Yeah you can’t handle it and I don’t have the patience
Your stroke was weak nigga
Pacin’ in the n*gger, don’t be playin’ with the n*gger

On the top shelf, prayin on caucasian?
Rather rise above than to lay back complacin’
You think you up next but bitch I’m adjacent
[?] turn on me that’s a fact then I faced it
Pregnant with success, friends don’t want you to make it
Steady searchin’ for the truth, I don’t gotta chase it
I wish we never met but I cannot erase it
Layin’ in the hammock
Lie with my [?]
Keep it caribbean when you kick it with my crew
Keep your bloodclot ma quiet I do not f*ck with you
Keep the team on my hip and we stickier than glue
My birthday Halloween so I’m freakier than you
Eatin’ jerk chicken while I’m finessin in the booth
We play the same sport, I don’t smell like you
Get in the same cheese, I don’t melt like you
You cute and all but the combo’s whack
What’s good with that ain’t cool with that
No I can’t relax, no I can’t relapse
Lemme bounce back, where my soldiers at?
With they shoulders back, whatchu lookin at?
No cook crack with that black girl magic
I’m smokin’ Spike Lee joint she just gotta have it
Everybody wanna be black it’s so tragic
Everytime I wear clothes I’m stoppin’ traffic
Everybody here knows I am the baddest

These bitches so greasy, that’s why I don’t never follow

Soaring like a spaceship I’m just faded out the front door

Vybz Kartel Publicly Shamed Popcaan With Epic Snub


Vybz Kartel and Popcaan have not made peace despite some recent reporting.

The self-proclaim Worl’Boss celebrated his 42nd birthday on Sunday and a number of his past and current allies took the timeout to wish him a happy birthday on social media. We saw artists like Popcaan, Sean Kingston, Tommy Lee Sparta, Spice, and NotNice post images of Kartel while sending birthday greetings his way. Kartel liked all the posts except for Popcaan and fans took note and criticized him for it.

The Unruly Boss shout-out his former mentor twice during separate performances in the Caribbean over the holidays. But it’s his post on Instagram that causing some fans to speak out. “Popcaan you is a two face snake, you never go visit the boss not once but you trying to get a hype by posting this, leave the boss name out your bad mind mouth,” one fan wrote in the comments.

Sources inside the Gaza told Dancehall HipHop that Popcaan has yet to visit Vybz Kartel behind bars since his incarceration in 2011. We’re also told that he has in the past requested a visit but Kartel denied it. This is a clear sign that these two former friends, who had a father and son-like relationship, are not making peace anytime soon. The below images show Vybz Kartel liking posts from everyone while snubbing Popcaan.

“The boss like everybody posts except for yours yo no have no shame, come off a the man name and stop post up picture with the boss like you and him a friend,” another fan commented.

Wyclef Jean Explains Why He Likes Vybz Kartel So Much, Talks Reggae Influence Globally


Wyclef Jean is a big fan of Vybz Kartel and here is why he has so much respect for the incarcerated dancehall icon.

Clef is currently in Jamaica for the upcoming Shaggy and Friends benefit concert this weekend in Kingston. But before he graced the stage, he had a sit down with Winford Williams on OnStage where he opened up about local talents and the heavy usage of reggae/dancehall in mainstream music currently. Despite the heavy sampling of Jamaican music by international acts, very few local artists are making it to the mainstream like Shaggy and Sean Paul did.

“Do you know why I like Vybz Kartel so much,” Wyclef said. “Because he understands this, at the end of the day right, if I can’t sell you a CD right now and you said man Clef can’t sell music no more but guess what I know I can sell you for sure, a Wyclef guitar.”

The former Fugee frontman spoke at length about Caribbean artists talent and their need to understand the music business fully in order to push their careers to the top. “This is what I want kids to understand, the music business is a 360, when you coming in now create a brand, do not be just an artist no more, become a brand,” he said.

Wyclef Jean also spoke about his new album Carnival 3, going on tour next year, and his presidential bid for Haiti. He started out by clearing up some rumors about his foundation Yele Haiti after a New York-based state attorney conducted an investigation over financial irregularities. Clef said that the whole investigation was a smear campaign to take down his presidential bid. The entire interview was well received with the music icon opening up about a lot of topics. You can see him live this weekend at Shaggy and Friends on the lawns of Jamaica House.

Are Rihanna and Popcaan Working On New Music?


Rihanna and Popcaan stirs up rumors that they are working on new music together.

The pop superstar and teh Unruly Boss were both in Barbados last weekend. Rihanna was on her home soil where she was honored with a street named after her, while Popcaan was there to perform at a concert. RiRi and her BFF Melissa Ford link up with Poppy for a candid photo that has since been making the rounds on social media.

Sources close to the “Work” singer told Dancehall HipHop that the two spoke about working together but so far nothing concrete. “They did spoke about collaborating but nothing concrete yet just the initiation,” sources said. “These are two great Caribbean artists who are fans of each other’s music so naturally they would want to work together. Only time will tell if we will get a song featuring Rihanna and Popcaan.”

Both artists are currently working on new albums so there isn’t a better time for them to drop a collaboration on one of the upcoming projects. Popcaan is close friends with Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend Drake, so if this collab happens lets so how Drizzy will react to it. Last year RiRi had one of the biggest songs on the planet, her dancehall banger “Work” featuring Drake. The video for that single received almost a billion views on YouTube.


Roy Woods Drop His Debut Album “Say Less” [Listen]


Roy Woods debut album Say Less is finally here.

The OVO crooner has been working on the project for the past year and now you can get it on iTunes. The album, Say Less, comes with 16 new tracks and features guest verses from other OVO affiliates like 24hrs, dvsn, PnB Rock, and PARTYNEXTDOOR. dvsn and PnB are featured on the previously released single “Balance,” while Party is on the new single “Back It Up.”

Roy Woods says the album is heavily influenced by dancehall culture, a genre of music originated in Jamaica and has a heavy presence in the Toronto music scene. “Say Less is loyal to the rich and varied Caribbean influence of Toronto, with ‘Take Time’ in particular melding two of his most cherished influences: Michael Jackson and dancehall culture,” he said in a statement on iTunes.

Listen to Roy Woods debut album Say Less below.


Is Tommy Lee Sparta Making Mumble Dancehall Music



Tommy Lee Sparta is being accused of making mumble dancehall music?

While mumble rap became a thing in hip hop in recent years, mumble dancehall is not a thing, at least not yet. Some fans are accusing Tommy Lee Sparta of making mumble music, but unless you’re a hardcore dancehall follower you may not always understand what he is saying in his songs. Sean Kingston and Tommy Lee debut their new video for their first collaboration “Cross Over” on WorldStarHipHop yesterday and fans have been weighing in.

“WTF when since dancehall artist start with this mumble rap foolishness, this guy [Tommy Lee Sparta] isn’t even saying real words, this is trash,” one fan wrote while another added, “This guy is just making a bunch of sounds he is not even rapping they should keep this mumble foolishness out of reggae at least cats like Sean Paul and Beenie Man use real words even if its patois.”

One thing we should point out about this is that most of the critics were American based fans who are probably used to Sean Kingston reggae-pop flavor of music and not hardcore dancehall. So for those who don’t understand what Tommy Lee is saying here is a snippet of his lyrics. “Clean in a new bank robber / Time is money watch the gal them a fallow / Full of gold chains like a me name Shaba / Every body know me a the lyrical bomber / Scarface, Toni Montana, mi jus spend a million dollar / Weed me smoke me don’t run coke joke / Last boy this run up inna gun smoke,” Sparta spits.

“Any American saying they dont understand Tommy Lee verse gotta embrace it cuz u know y i don’t understand sh*t you’ll mumble rappers be saying yet still I’m from the Caribbean an i embrace you’ll sh*t so dont get it twisted,” one dancehall fan wrote. “Too me Tommy’s verse sounds more like a new style in mumbling so maybe he might be bigger than lil pump, xxxtenation, ski mask.”


Beenie Man Says Spice Is Not The New Queen Of Dancehall



Beenie Man says Spice is not the new queen of dancehall music at least not yet.

Earlier this tear, Spice crowned herself the new reigning queen of Jamaica’s dominant music genre, dancehall, a title previously held by Lady Saw who is now a gospel artist and a pastor. In 2015, Lady Saw relinquished her crown to become a Christian and she never looked back. She struggled with the transition for years before finally making her break-through. Since then no one stepped up to set on the throne at least not until this year when Spice stepped up to the plate.

There is no doubt that Spice has been a force in dancehall for the past few years, but is it enough to wear the crown for the queen of the dancehall? Beenie Man answered that question during an interview with Winford Williams on OnStage last weekend. “Well the queen of dancehall baptized now… Marion Hall [Lady Saw], the queen of dancehall baptized,” Beenie Man said. “So I am here to see the next queen to come.” When asked about Spice crowning herself, Beenie said, “Well she is the one that stepped up to the plate but that’s not how you become the queen.”

“Because if you’re going to take Lady Saw crown then you have to do what Lady Saw did like no disrespect, you can’t do less work and [want to be the queen],” Beenie added. The dancehall king lamented that Spice will have to elevate her career to the same heights as Lady Saw in order to gain the respect of the fans. “Becomes that artist that you know… she is Spice in Jamaica, she is Spice everywhere Jamaicans is, she is Spice everywhere Caribbean people is, she needs to be Spice where American and British people meet,” the Doc continues. “I am not talking about watching Instagram and talking about song, reaching the people ears the right way, being that artist that we can sit down in Jamaica and look on you on MTV and look on you on VH1 and say alright she has done it and she has reached that point. Because Lady Saw did it and she reached that point.”

Beenie Man added that Spice is more like the queen-elect, but still has more work to do to elevate her career to the next level.


Rihanna Blast Trump On Twitter For Response To Puerto Rico Hurricane


Rihanna is furious with President Trump over his administration response to Puerto Rico amidst a humanitarian crisis on the island.

For the past week, the president has been getting a lot of criticism from celebrities on Twitter about the slow response to help the people of Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria wrecked havoc on the island last week. Rihanna added her voice to the mix on Thursday when she tweeted out the cover of the New York Daily News which highlights the severity of the crisis on the Caribbean island which is also a U.S. territory.

“Dear [Donald Trump] I know you’ve probably already seen this, but I just wanted to make sure! Don’t let your people die like this,” she tweeted. She received over 200,000 likes and 100,000 plus retweets with lots of people commending her for using her platform to shed more light on the situation. The five former living presidents have also joined in the effort to help hurricane ravage Puerto Rico.

Rihanna has never been afraid to voice her opinion on humanitarian crisis around the world and she doesn’t care if she buck heads with the president. She raised millions of dollars through her foundation to help educate young girls around the world and also to help fight cancer.

Horrible Histories – British Things lyrics


[Intro]
I love to be a British queen
I am Victoria, you see
Now where’s my British butler
With my British cup of tea?
Tea is not from Britain, ma’am
From India it was brought
Yes, for your cuppa, thousands died
And many wars were fought

[Chorus]
British things, my British things
It seems that tea is not
British things, my British things
Can I sweeten it a jot?

[Verse 1]
Do tell me sugar’s British though
No, it’s Caribbean imported
For sugar in your cup of tea
Slavery’s been supported
I know it’s wrong, your majesty
But slaves in Africa
Worked hard in fields of sugar cane
To sweeten up your char

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
I thought that there were many
British things, ah British things

Afraid there’s hardly any

[Verse 2]
You know your British cotton vest
What’s wrong with it?
Explain!
The cotton’s from America
And picked by… slaves again!

[Verse 3]
Your empire’s built on fighting wars
That’s how your income’s swollen
Your British things are from abroad
And most are frankly stolen

[Hook]
Whatever next? Go on! Pray tell!
Our British queen is foreign as well?

[Verse 4]
It’s true, I am of foreign descent
And your husband, Albert? A German gent!
At least I’ve got a British name
Victoria’s Latin… that’s a shame!

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
There are no, we declare
All our favourite British things
Seem to come from elsewhere!


Ray Blk – My Hood

Lyrics

Comments Off on Ray Blk – My Hood


[Verse 1: Ray BLK]
Socks and sliders everywhere and every day
Full English breakfast at a caff, not a café
No, no, baby, we don’t let strangers come our way
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Meet me at Morley’s, best fried chicken is in South
I’ll show you gangsters, don’t you go running your mouth
Mopeds are racing, 2AM outside my house, oh yeah, it’s loud
But come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Link: Ray BLK]
Oh, you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Yeah, you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
[Verse 2: Ray BLK]
Barely anyone at school after 15
We’re chasing paper then Blue Borough should be green
I won’t lie, finding a way out is our dream
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Top floor of Pepys estate, we’ll show you our world
That building turns you to a woman from a girl
Now time to stop, life flashes past you in a whirl
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Chorus: Ray BLK]
On these streets, these streets
In the dark, we glow
On these streets, these streets
We’re high when it’s low
On these streets, these streets
Through concrete, flowers grow
In my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
I’m from a hood where niggas make their money, then they move
The woman in the Caribbean shop is always rude
Tryna get a patty just to compliment my food
So why you gotta tell my friends to move?
No, we gotta balls the food when we see the feds spin it
Bare “wah gwan”s, I ain’t seen you for a minute
Coming from the land of wings and chicken filets
Where you’re from, man won’t be able to read but he can bill it
You can see why that’s a problem, any given problem
Staring in my face? I’mma ask you “what’s the problem?”
You can be Bane or you can be Robin
But we’ve had a lot of Dark Knights living up in Gotham
Man, there’s babies having babies, man, it’s crazy up in my hood
Shit’s got me praying that I die good
Where we’d rather buy guns before we buy books
Where they left us in the dark, so we light kush, my hood

[Bridge: Ray BLK]
There’s no place like home, no place like home
Buy me any ticket, I don’t wanna go
To a town where there’s no one like me round
Don’t take me there or anywhere

[Chorus: Ray BLK]
On these streets, these streets
In the dark, we glow
On these streets, these streets
We’re high when it’s low
On these streets, these streets
Through concrete, flowers grow
In my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Verse 1: Freetown Collective]
When the valley couldn’t hold me, they throw me in the river
Thinking I would drown but man ah good swimmer, ohhh
When the river didn’t drown me, they throw me in the fire
But the fire just cool, I could never burn, ohhh

[Chorus: Freetown Collective]
Cause I’m a believer, I’m a believer
I’m a believer, I’m a believer
[Breakdown: Major Lazer & Showtek]
Hold up, pull up

[Post-Chorus: Freetown Collective]
Freetown is my family
(My family)
Whole caribbean follow we
(Follow we)
Evergreen like the forest be
Terrible they can’t manage me
Afrika no apology

[Breakdown: Major Lazer & Showtek]

[Verse 2: Freetown Collective]
When the valley couldn’t hold me, they throw me in the river
Thinking I would drown but man ah good swimmer, ohhh
They say hotter the battle, yea, we dance when we conquer
It’s been forever, it won’t be much longer
Stand firm, you will be much stronger, ohhh

[Chorus: Freetown Collective]
I’m a believer, I’m a believer
I’m a believer, I’m a believer

[Post-Chorus: Freetown Collective]
Freetown is my family
Rough sea never bother me
Whole carribbean follow we
Root deeper than a forestry
Evergreen like the forest be
Terrible they can’t manage me
Afrika no apology
Hold up, pull up

[Breakdown: Major Lazer & Showtek]

[Outro: Freetown Collective]
Never fall down yet, don’t digress
Put us against any test, yea, no stress
‘Ight
