Mavado, Busy Signal, Idonia, or Munga - Who will be the last man standing

By: Out&Bad

Between the years 2006-2007, the dancehall fraternity has witnessed four new artistes who have definitely made a mark in the industry. All four came along with a catchy slang that has now become an everyday language flowing from the mouths of teenagers and grown ups.

The first one on the OutAroad.com battle field was Busy Signal, who definitely stuck to the definition of his name and had the place busy. Within a few months he had the whole place shouting “Sound The Big Thing Dem” - he also made a promised to his fans that he’s
“Not Going Down”.
This promise, he manages to maintain even though a few months back, Busy had lost every bit of his ‘Signals’. He was however quick on his thoughts to realise that “These Are The Flipping Days”.

Next on the agenda was Idddddddd donia, who got his big break by following the clashing trends of Bounty Killer and Beenie Man. This trend he directed primarily at Busy Signal, though he threw words at Don Corleone, and Cool Face to name a few. With the strong lyrical content that he was spitting out, there is no way Busy Signal could have “Step Out” and competed with Aidonia.

Back then it was the effort of internationally acclaimed producer Cordell ‘Skatta’ Burrell who helped Aidonia to create a strong fan base within months. The relation between the two didn’t last long, because of a simple contractual agreement. Aidonia’s creative slang was “You Know It’s I dddddddd donia”. This became an anthem for teenagers and even a few grown ups.

During the clashing period between Aidonia and Busy Signal, Munga tried to butt in - but no one paid him any attention – So then came Mr. Gangsta for life – Mavado. He was an instant hit among dancehall fans both local and international. Some were debating about the violence in the lyrical content of his songs, while others were debating if he would be the next artiste to join the hardcore group of outstanding deejays such as Bounty Killer Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and Elephant Man.

At first Mavado was only singing about his problems in the ghetto, until the King of The Dancehall Beenie Man decided to step on his ‘Daddy’s’ toes, the one who is also known as Bounty Killer. This was one of the few bad decisions that he made and then things got ugly. Anywayyyyyyy! That’s not what we are focusing on right now.

By this time, the man that the public had booed at a few shows was slowly but surely soaking into their minds. It was non other than the man himself Munga Honorable. When he first started out no one believed him that “Them Bowy Deh Nuh Bad Like I”.
Although that was not so convincing, he went back into his musical archive and started to “Flipping Rhymes.” This was when dancehall fans realised that Munga “Bad From Him Born”, but it was too late - there were nowhere to hide when he started to “Buss It Mek Di Earth Shake”. No need to be scared now, he’s now a gallis who’s gentle asking his female fans to “Whine Pon It”. His creative slang was “Yes Yesssss!

So, the question is….. Who will remain at the top of table and who will fall?
Predictions: Busy Signal and Idonia will make a strong come back -

I am a big fan of Idonia so I guess I am going to be bias with my opinions, Idonia can have it, he just need to be a bit clearer while flipping his rhymes. This will followed by Busy Signal love him too, great potential. Then its up to Movado and Munga to continue. Love the music right now, love it.

Yo wen Movado meh see mavado pon dat stage show, wen bounty first call him up, meh rate him frm den.
But I am hugely disappointed, wat da f**k is going on, him have som good tunes, but movado can't clash and it wit clashing dat yuh see di real talent. plus all his tunes r sounding da same, and i am bored, i have all mavado's tunes even before he makes them lol and if anybody would know its me.

Busy have nuff talent, its just a shame he's in Alliance caus he aint gettin his just exposure, dem a push movado infront a him, bt him humble caus he knws he is destined for better tings.

I Di Di Di Donia is a talent artists, di youth can write,he just needs a bit more work, bt him talented to b%@8* clart, listen to tracks like empty or Di Robbery. " we born poor but we nah go dead poor".

Munga can sing, deejay and everything, Yes Yes, he is verstile da only problem i have wit him is that he is beefing Idonia, and rasta shouldn't gwan wit dem passa passa. but "gangsta do them own thing", he "came to take my place" they "can't hold me down" caus da girls them love Di "Gangsta Ras" and i'll be waiting for him to "Hold You in My Arms".

Big up Addi Di Daddy, Vybz Kartel.

Busy is by far the best lyrically, delivery focus can sing can deejay. Mavado have di wickidess voice and pure power inna him tune dem. Aidonia lyrics unique but not on par wid busy plus him cant ride di riddim. Munga juss making hits I dont know how long him will last.....in the end Busy and Mavado...dem style sick n cyaaah cure



bussmove:

who wrote this?busy never lost,busy makes hit,idonia have mouth and around 3 hits and so much war vibes with not much songs touching charts,busy songs sometimes a re socially concious also,and make sense,plus munga tune was a huge hit,and it made a serious move on aidonia that was an anthem here in ny and in jamaica too there is only one looser there and thats aidonia,too much war and dissing and hype,everyone else are having hits/number ones,major shows and tours and are amking an impact.aidonia is a crazy witty lyricist though,he ned to make tunes that people understand and leave the tight rhyme and show his talent

I grew up a hip-hop fan - but these guys and Vybz made me give up on hip-hop. I think Munga has the best flow. Busy really has a nice style i like a lot. Mavado got some great tracks - but too much singing in some of them. I like Munga and Busy best - but i think that Mavado has the total package to make it big, too much cross-over potential for him not too.
