Mavado So Special Video debuts on BET’s 106 and Park

5

The long awaited music video for Mavado’s hit ‘So Special debuted on BET’s 106 and Park on Monday of this week.  The director of the video was going for a fun atmosphere versus, hence the club scenery, that would appeal to young people.  Everybody loves the song  and is happy that a video is finally here, but the feedback I have heard so far on the music video from hardcore dancehall heads is that gully god has gone commercial.  Many fans wanted the video to have been filmed in Jamaica.  The video features cameos from alliance members Bling Dawg a.k.a Ricky Rudie and Bounty Killer.

Reggae Vault Classics 7

4

Reggae Vault Classics episode 7 starts off with the late, great, Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown singing for us to “Smile…” and “…dance this rebel (reggae) music.”  Since I feel one more D. Brown is always appropriate, in comes another Dennis Brown on the same riddim, followed by Beres Hammond with Come Back Home and Garnett Silk with Hello Mama Africa.  Next Dennis Brown returns to the mix posing the question “Have You Ever Been in Love?”  Capleton’s “Moving On,” the next biggest tune to have been recorded on this Dennis Brown riddim follows before classic hits from Sanchez, Beres, Gregory Issacs, and Frankie Paul back to back make it a true lovers mood.

We are now back in the 1980s and stay there for a while with the next two riddims selected, ‘You think Me Done’ and the legendary ‘Sleng Teng’ riddim.  A few different versions of the Sleng Teng can be heard here, from the original King Jammys style to the 1990s John John version featuring Spragga Benz and Bounty Killer.  Please check the playlist for all artists and titles in this 32 minute podcast mix designed to keep you rocking from start ’til end.  For our hardcore fans there is also a 10 minute bonus track at the end featuring some Highlanda dubplate classics on the Sleng Teng, Answer, and Love Punany Bad riddims.

Pon Di Gaza – New Dis Song By Vybz Kartel

4

Vybz KartelVybz Kartel has released yet another dis song aimed at Mavado and the Alliance Crew. This one is titled “Pon Di Gaza” and is on Portmore Empire producer Not Nice’s revamped Taxi riddim. Despite being soundly booed when he did it during the clash with Mavado at Sting, Kartel has once again made references to Mavado’s mother in this new tune.
