Julia Braham in trouble again for unfinished project valued at US$4500

By: Christopher Icey Jace Campbell
OutAroad.com Writer

Julia_Braham_Receipt.jpg

In what has turned out to be the talk of the industry last week, the Julia Braham Saga continues - this time with another well known industry veteran claiming the young video director’s lack of professionalism caused loss in promotional revenue.

Mark Pinnock C.E.O of Natural Bridge Records home to Dancehall artists Mr. Peppa, Ward-21, Konshens, Aisha, Timber-lee and Tifa is the latest plaintiff to accuse Braham of improprieties. Pinnock who read the previous OutAroad.com exclusive with DJ Assassin’s Manager Gareth Campbell says “it's not the first time she has done something like this”.

With invoices prepared by his company dated from as far back as June 19th he says Braham has taken his money and to date a video has not been presented. Speaking to OutAroad.com at his Dumbarton Ave Studios Pinnock insists that his only reason for coming forward is because he wants it to be known that Assassin’s camp is not the only victim that has been scarred by the hands of her unscrupulous behavior . “This is not something we at Natural Bridge normally do, we are a company of professionals and by no means are we trying to tarnish her career but if this is the only means of garnering her attention then so be it - instead of Julia complaining she needs to provide us with some form of reimbursement for the unfinished project valued at US$4500.

It's most unfortunate that my fans took this decision to attack Jigsy - Vybz Kartel

Vybz Kartel
vybz_kartel_sting2007_dancehall.jpgI am surprised that Jigsy has gone to the media with all these outlandish accusations, some of which border on slander and defamation, and serve to damage my reputation as an entertainer. I was not even in the venue at the time of this alleged incident at Bembe. I had been promoting my new liquor Vybz Rum, and partying with friends at the session, and had left some time during Jigsy’s set. I only heard about the incident several hours afterwards through a third party, and then reporters informed me of his ridiculous tirade on the radio. I don’t know if Jigsy is still in shock after the incident or if the moment has simply overwhelmed him, but he should desist from making these malicious statements for which there is no basis or proof.

Bugle's What I'm Gonna Do remains in the #1 spot - Hype TV Top Chart

Bugle
bugle-dancehall-artiste.jpgBugle's "What I'm Gonna Do" remains in the # 1 Position for two consecutive weeks. He is obviously showing that he is top chart material. 'All Hail to Mr. Bugle'.

'The Shot to Watch' this week is "Fallen Soldiers" by Demarco. It is currently in the # 2 Position but let's see how long this will last. The song is one of the fore runners in the race for the top and has been hot on Bugle's tail.

"Daddy Don't Touch Me There" by Queen Ifrica is the 'The Greatest Gainer' this week the song moved four spots up the # 8 Position. The queen is on the move again, is this another chart topper for her?

'The Newest Entry' is Erupt's "Click My Finger". The song makes it debut in the # 20 Position. Will this song make its way up the chart in a click or will it take longer.

vybzkartel-jigsywar.jpgChaos reined at Bembe Thursday for a second successive week after an altercation developed between Vybz Kartel and Bembe selector, Jigsy. Offended by comments Jigsy made during his stint behind the turntables Kartel summoned the selector and proceeded to hit him in the face with a firearm.

OutAroad.com heard of the incident and called both parties, however we did not get in touch with Vybz Kartel, but Jigsy was more than willing to give his side of the story.

"Mi on the stage a perform an' as usual everybody know that I am the kind of person who talk what is on my mind and mi always have my style saying bleach out face bowy mi waan kill unno, tight pants bowy mi waan kill unno," he said emotinally adding.

Assassin's Camp Respond to Slander - "Julia Braham is unprofessional"

By: Christopher Icey Jace Campbell
OutAroad.com Writer

Assassin-moneymachinephoto.jpgA day after news surfaced that famed female video director Julia Braham was owed money by Assassin for his most recent video Money Machine his Manager and brother Gareth Campbell is on the offensive. Campbell who has been Assassin's manager from his earliest rise in dancehall is adamant that negligence and a lack of professionalism on the part of Braham led to the falling out.

In an exclusive phone interview with OutAroad.com sought to clarify the actual detail of the business arrangement. “Julia is completely unfair we had agreed to shoot a video for Assassin’s song 'Don’t Make Me Hold You' from about early July when the track was hot and our promotional campaign was most significant and she didn’t deliver. We paid her in full for the video, $300,000.00 in cash as well as wire transfer and we didn’t get nothing, it took her a month after the shoot to give us a reason why we couldn’t see the edited version, basically she said the hard drive that had the footage fell and everything was lost”. Campbell who said Julia blatantly misleads them however showed empathy and allowed her to redeem her self. “At first we just wanted back our money that we paid her in full but she called us crying and pleading and get people to beg us to give her a chance; I was lenient and so we agreed to do a new video free of cost.

Sting's 2007 Top 5 Best Dress Artistes Are….

Bounty Killer
Sting-2007-bountykiller-beenieman-alliance.jpgSting 2007 was not as excited as how fans determined it to be due to the fact no lyrical warfare took place on stage. But OutAroad.com will flip the script and showcase The Top 5 Best Dress Artistes and the worse dress artistes just to add a little fun in Sting 2007.

Overall the worse dress artiste was Fantan Mojah - his outfit was not even fit to be taken by our photographer’s camera so we will only showcase photos of the Top 5 Best Dress Artistes starting off the list with Bounty Killer standing firm in the number five position.

5) Bounty Killer gave is usually ‘killer’ performance by throwing a few words at his year to year arch rival Beenie Man who was no where near the Sting venue. He also received a massive encore from the audience when he mentioned, “Mi caan believe seh Vybz Kartel bleach out him face”.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4) Vybz Kartel ranked number four on the list - his out fit was not 100% wonderful but the coordination with his pants, shirt, tie, hat, jewelry, shoes and gloves was what makes his outfit looks expensive. Vybz Kartel also earned the honors of being awarded as one of the best male performers for Sting 2007. Back in the pass Vybz would just came on the stage and only sings the chorus of his hit songs but this time around he performed and entertained.
Sting-2007-vybzkartel-portmoreempire-photos.jpg
Vybz Kartel
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3) Holding down the number three position is Ninja Man’s adopted daughter Spice - her designer really did her justice and not only that she was hottest female artiste, but she also captured the title for best female performer. Spice slew D’Angel in every way she could and gave manly advice to Beenie Man for making a hilarious decision that she claimed his tearing him apart. She also sends out a message telling Beenie Man that she felt sorry for him.

Spice
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Shane-O’s outfit was extremely nice and could have also been listed as the number one best dress design, only if there were a teenager’s category. Hats off to Shane-O. OutAroad.com would also like to use this opportunity to congratulate Sonecone and Shane-O for their musical reunion, all the best for 2008.
Sting-2007-shane-ophotos.jpg
Shane-O
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) Ninja Man’s outfit was well done and properly put together - his outfit was indeed the best overall but went off the stage feeling disappointed because no one came forward for a lyrical clash with Ninja Man who was crowned Mr. Sting for 2007.

Assassin and video director Julia Braham at odds - "by will or by force I have to get my money"

By Christopher Icey Jace Campbell
OutAroad.com Writer

Assassin-usdollars-juliabraham.jpgDancehall’s fastest rising female video director Julia Braham is breaking the silence surrounding a current disagreement between herself and the versatile Dancehall DJ Assassin. Braham whose long list of clientele includes some of dancehall's most elite says her recent project with Assassin has gone sour after a series of mishaps.

Speaking with OutAroad.com in an exclusive interview she gave details of what transpired. “Aright what happened was I shot a video for Assassin's song 'Don’t Make Me Hold You' and quoted a charge to his management, when I sent the footage to the editor for editing he (the editor) damaged the hard drive accidentally - so is like we just decided to do a new video”.

Braham who admits to not having a formal written contract in place says Assassin's manager Garath Campbell had given the go ahead for the new shoot but when calculated exceeded the first videos budget by a few thousand dollars. “We basically had a verbal agreement and we decided to do a video instead for Money Machine, I told them that it would be a bit more money and they basically said fine they would pay the balance. Fine we did the video and I sent it to the same editor because he was now responsible for getting the project completed and he did his job but ignored my distinct instructions not to give Assassin's people the completed version until the money owed was collected. The money owed to me should have been paid when the video wrapped that day but up to now I don’t get it and I have people I need to pay calling me asking for their money, these are people I have worked with and it’s putting that business relationship we have in jeopardy”, she told OutAroad.com with a worried look on her face.

I will never be the one to hurt you,

Vybz Kartel and Mavado
vybzkartel-mavadothugsfight-dancehall.jpgHell broke loose at Bembe last night between members of Mavado and Vybz Kartel’s entourage which turns out to be a bloody scene.

OutAroad.com reporter Kon-Vick was no where close to the melee but managed to paint a picture of the incident with the help of a patron standing in the heart of the vicious bottle throwing fight.

“Mavado and him crew did stand in the direction of the bathroom and it seems like Kartel and a few men from his entourage was heading in that same direction when Mavado’s thugs tried to stop them from passing through the middle and then things got ugly.
Bottle mash in a head, kick and punch and all sort of things erupted.

According to another patron it was just a little misunderstanding that got out of hand.
“I don’t think they knew who was who - both Mavado and Kartel par with bad men and none of them weren’t too bright to settle this silly incident like real men, the fight just never did fi happened.

Rihanna Is All Natural!

rihanna_boobsbreast.jpgRihanna got everyone talking recently on whether the fact she’s gotten some enhancements on her body lately. She insists that it’s all those rumors are just that, rumors!

She says, "I'm terrified of going under the knife. Because of the pain, the complications - not to mention the fact that it's utterly unauthentic. "If my t*ts aren't feeling big one day, too bad. I'll get a good bra.

"I like my body and I work out as hard as I can to make it as perfect as possible. But at the end of the day there's always people who criticize your weight, your hairstyle and what you're wearing. I just get on with it."

The girl wears a push up bra one day and everyone assumes she’s got a boob job. I'm sure a guy started this rumor, because any girl knows that a good bra can really give a woman that extra "lift" she needs.

Munga and Deva Bratt fist fight onstage at Stone Love Anniversary party

Munga and Deva Bratt
munga_devabratt_fightstonelove.jpgFast rising dancehall artist Munga and Portmore’s star Deva Bratt gave fans a taste of what to expect at Sting 2007 after both artistes got into a crucial fist fight on stage at Stone Love anniversary party held at Mass Camp.

It was in the wee hours of the morning when Gangsta Ras Munga hits the stage and before he could get the chance to thrill the over thousand fans with his 'vocoda' sound style Deva Bratt walked onstage. One of Munga’s right hand men then entered the stage as well but was tossed off the stage by Deva Bratt. Munga then realised what’s going and immediately got in a fist fight with Deva Bratt but the fist fight almost becomes a bloody scene if security personnel were not in time to disarmed Munga’s of his knife.

After few minutes everything went back to normal with magnificent performances by the doctor Beenie Man and Anthony B.

Well, Selassie protect his children, keep them from falling.
Mi cry hmmm mi cry
Hmmm mi cry, cry, cry

Chorus
They’re wishing for me to fall but Jah’s gonna make me stronger.
They’re wishing for me to fall but Jah’s gonna make me higher.

(Verse 1)
You will never see me by the street side begging bread,
Jah bless me with a roof over my head,
Just keep focus cause better is ahead
Jah power stronger
They act as if Jah nuh really know, not even likkle love dem would a show me
But as the days go by, many turn, they turn

Busy Signal's Nah Go A Jail - tops Bugle's What I'm Gonna Do on Hype TV Chart

Busy Signal
busysignal_seanbrown_photosdancehall.jpgBusy Signal is stamping his mark as a # 1 contender as he remains in the # 1 position with his "Nah Go A Jail" song for over three consecutive week. Mr. Signal seems to be seriously aiming for the 'Artist of the Year Title'.

Bugle's "What I'm Gonna Do" is also determine to stay in the fight for the top as the song remained in the # 2 Position. He battled his way up the chart at an excellent pace and seems to have his eyes on the top spot, but does he really possess top spot material which is required to replace Mr. Signal.

The Shot to Watch' this week is "Bonafide Girl" by Shaggy Feat. Rik Rok. The song moved quickly to the # 3 Position after less than two months on the chart. This seems like a 'bonafide' hit for the pair.

"Fallen Soldiers" by Demarco is the 'The Greatest Gainer'. The song moved three sots up from the # 10 position to assume the # 7 Position. This song is obviously a top ten contender. It is interesting to see how far up the charts this song can really go.

'The Newest Entry' is Sean Paul's "Pick It Up & Drop It". The song makes it debut in the # 20 Position. Mr. Temperature seems to be obviously at it again. The question on everyone's mind is, "Will this song be an international hit?"

Collie Buddz For Appleton Welcome To Jamrock

Collie Buddz
collieBuddz_promo.jpgAgain, Appleton Jamaica Rum Welcome To Jamrock has delivered! The much talked about concert, scheduled for Friday, December 21 at the Constant Spring Football field, has now confirmed another one of Reggae’s promising big guns - Collie Buddz. He joins an already packed house of stars that will jam, entertain, and liven up Jamaica’s entertainment scene for the Christmas. He joins a list of stars which include the Marley family, Tarrus Riley, and Etana among others.

Collie Buddz is no stranger to the island. The music video for his break-out track Come Around was shot by Ras Kassa right here in Jamaica. In addition, he has constantly referred to Jamaica as the hub for his influence, and cites here as the influence for his music.

He was born Colin Harper in New Orleans, but he was raised in Bermuda, and spent much of his time in Toronto Canada. With the mixed background, he was exposed to a wide variety of music, ranging from dancehall, to soca, to hip-hop. These three he held close, but settled comfortably into the dancehall world.

Grannson Western Jamaica's Best Secret

Gransonn_photo.jpgChristopher Wallace aka Gransonn may be one of Western Jamaica's best kept secrets. The talented Rastafarian chanter who hails from Cooke Street, Savanna-La-Mar in the parish of Westmoreland is no ordinary deejay. He believes in writing songs from the heart and creating music that will last forever. He states "I am a man of integrity, determination, versatility and credibility. Therefore I must use this talent that Jah has given to me to do positive things". Gransonn has been deejaying from as early as he can remember, but his first real taste of the music business came in 2002. When he did his first professionally recorded song "Caney", for the Sound Bird record label in Negril. This track got a lot of attention from the local radio stations in Westmoreland and sound system deejays. Creating quite a buzz for the much loved artist in his home town.

Female Reggae Artiste Thrill The Village

Aisha & Konshens
aisha_konshens_villagelive_singers.jpg

Tuesday Night Live, Kingston’s premier live event for emerging artists, proved its worth this week with powerful and professional performances from some of Jamaica’s most talented artists.

Della Manley graced the event with an unscheduled acoustic performance. The Reggae Folk singer could do no wrong as she belted hits from her critically acclaimed album “Ashes in The Windowsill”. Backed by Reggae prestige such as Rupert Bent, Richie Patterson, Dalton Browne and the young gifted and black Wayne Mcgregor, The Village became the backdrop for some of Jamaica’s best artistes and musicians from the underground, and mainstream circuit.

tifa_dangel_entertainersphotos.jpgFellow Reggae Folk singer Charmaine joined the melee and her rendition of Bob Dylans “Knocking On Heaven’s Door”, heated the scanty crowd into a fever that soon magnetized the throng of people scattered outside the venue.

When Petros Band leader Petros Chang hit the crowd with his rock induced rendition of Jamaica’s national anthem, the creative potential of the local alternative rock scene bloomed in full view.

Supported by Black Zebra’s Wayne Mcgregor on lead guitar, the song was jaw dropping and set the notion that Jamaicans could really rock n roll, in the land of wood, water and reggae.

Upcoming female artiste, Tifa was femme fatal and began her musical dairy of a mad black woman. Singles such as “Feel Like”, “Kitty Police”, and “Cranny Gal” went over well with the crowd, and she left the venue confidently knowing she made her mark on the uptown circuit.

Dancehall Divas at War – Who will take Sting 2007

D'Angel & Spice
d%27angel%26spice_stingphotos.jpg

In the past Sting has known to be the host of lyrical warfare live on stage. The regular contenders each year was Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Ninja Man, Merciless and then the door was opened in 2000 to new comers Vybz Kartel, Assassin, Mavado, Idonia and Busy Signal.

On Sting’s line-up for this year it’s evident that there won’t be a strong male presence in the lyrical war fare due to the fact that the Doctor Beenie Man refused to be billed for the annual event. This won't be his first time not being billed on the greatest one night show - as he was also a no show back in 1997 and 2001.

Even though Beenie Man will be a no show many fans now geared their attention towards the female deejays wanting to see which female artistes will be the Queen of Sting 2007. So far the saucy deejay Spice has been busy in studio putting together a slew of songs preparing her self for any female artistes who decides to contest her. But at this moment like it or not her main target will be Beenie Man’s estranged wife D’Angel who seems to be shying away from a clash with Spice.
A source close to D’Angel revealed to OutAroad.com that D’Angel is no fool and she’s only playing fool to catch wise.

The other female contenders to look out for are Macka Diamond, Danielle and the muma of dancehall Lady Saw.

Over the past eight years, he has worked very hard to create a first class Christmas event for the parish of St. Elizabeth, where he was born and raised. Despite the many obstacles he faced in his endeavors, the very resilient and creative radio DJ along with his dedicated team stuck to the plan and has seen this event which started as a dance, grow into being a much anticipated calendar event. The event which started out eight years ago as GT Taylor's Christmas Extravaganza, is now officially known as Magnum GT Taylor Reggae Christmas Extravaganza and is staged annually on the 25th of December at Independence Park in Black River.

GT Taylor is very passionate about his parish as he puts it "I love my parish endlessly, I would never leave it to live anywhere else, I'm very proud to be from St. Elizabeth". Therefore his efforts to give back to his parish comes as no surprise. Over the years after the staging of the event, he has made donations to several institutions in the parish. He is also the PR officer for the St. Elizabeth Care Committee. The committee is based in Black river and comprises of several members of the community all professionals or business people.

Murder music: Brighton set to ban songs of hate

By Kev Kharas

beeniemanbujubantonelephantmanbountykiller.jpgBrighton is set to become the first city to introduce a ban on ‘anti-gay’ lyrics next week, reports the BBC.

The policy, which looks likely to be approved at a Council meeting next Thursday (13 Dec), would make any music - live or recorded - inciting racial, religious or sexual hatred illegal in the city.

Venues supporting what’s described by local Councillor Dee Simpson as “murder music” could have live licenses removed under the new policy.
"It will be used in really extreme cases to stop the playing of what's loosely termed murder music," said Simpson.

"We have a large gay and lesbian community in Brighton and Hove and we want to protect people from facing such hatred.

"I'm a firm believer in freedom of speech but I'm against the incitement of hatred against minorities."

There was controversy in Brighton last year when dancehall star Buju Banton (pictured) scheduled a show for the Concorde 2, a venue in the city’s gay district.

Accused of writing homophobic lyrics, the gig was cancelled by event managers at the last minute after pressure from the council, police and the gay community, but Simpson believes there is a need for an "explicit policy in place” to stop artists like Banton from appearing in the city.

Though Banton has since signed up to a commitment to ban hatred and prejudice from his music, but gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell welcomes the move, arguing that "free speech does not include the right to advocate the killing of other human beings".

Beenie Man Album "Concept Of Life" Hits U.S Stores

Beenie Man
beenie_manalbumconceptoflifewifephotos.jpgSelf proclaimed “King Of The Dancehall”, Beenie Man is quietly gathering the ammunition to shutter critics once an for all with a stealth album entitled, Concept Of Life.

Initially released exclusively for the French market by Cornershop Records, the album has quietly commanded record shops and online outlets through Europe and UK. In 2006, it was repackaged by Nocturne for the Far East market and later distributed throughout the Pacific by The P.I.D imprint.

Now in 2007, the album hits the North American market next week with its original 2005 cover and three new tracks, plus one bonus “brawta” if the album is purchased as an MP3 download.

The album features a host of collaborations including Dancehall legends U-Roy, John Holt, ex-stable mates, Razeir Brown, Don Mafia and Dancehall Pop group Voicemail.

Feedback from industry members within North American who have previewed the album, comment that this album may be one of Beenie Man’s most understated works, but has the potential to be his best.

Beenie Man was signed to Virgin Records in 1998 on the strength of the Billboard charting single Who Am I (Zim Zimma). Under the deal, he released Art & Life, Tropical Storm, Back To Basics, and Undisputed.

busy_signal_jailphoto.jpgBusy Signal's "Nah Go A Jail" remains in the # 1 position for two consecutive weeks. There seems to be no 'dead zones' for him as Mr. Signal's 'signal' seems to be very strong. He is clearly defending the top spot, but will his signal drop anytime soon.

Bugle's "What I'm Gonna Do" as been ascending the chart at a very good momentum. The song jumped to the # 2 Position and as managed to also capture 'The Shot to Watch' title for an additional week. Mr. Busy better watch out as Bugle seems determined to replace him at the top.

Beenieman & Bar-Bee's "Give It Up" continues to slip by moving one spot further to the # 3 Position. The song had controlled the top spot for many weeks, but has been recently slipping down the chart.

'The Greatest Gainer' this week is "Bonafide Girl" by Shaggy Feat. Rik Rok. The song moved three spots up to the # 5 Position.

It seems as if with all the popularity surrounding Bar-Bee with her video launch of 'Paddy Cake'. Bar-Bee Feat. Junior Kelly's "Missing You" has re-entered the chart at the # 20 Position. She seems to be doing very well on the charts with all her collaborations.

Alison Hinds "Soca Queen" Hits North American Outlets

allisonhinds_soca_queen.jpgAlison Hinds who became known as the lead vocalist in the calypso band Square One recently ventured out on her own and released her first solo album entitled “Soca Queen”.

The album was released in Canadian retail stores on October 16th, 2007 and on itunes on October 9th. 2007. Atlanta based record company 1720 Entertainment joined forces with Black Coral records from the Caribbean, with the hopes of taking the captivating songstress to stardom. Realizing that other Barbadians such as Rihanna have crossed over into main stream the company spared no expense in ensuring that the production was fit for an international audience.

Several songs on the record were produced by New York’s heavy weight Salaam Remi as well as calypso majors such as Van Gibbs and Chris Allman.

In addition to ensuring that production was right, the company also wanted the absolute best marketing team involved in the project. While conducting their research they came across Attack Music Group, a multi-faceted Toronto based company which does everything from licensing to producing. President/CEO Mark Berry convinced them of his love for the music, and his commitment to ensuring that the album would be promoted properly in Canada. After weeks of discussions, Attack Music Group was reportedly compensated significantly as they were brought on board to oversee marketing and promotion for the album. Unfortunately, this was not done.

Ninja Man
ninjaman_stingphotos.jpgNinja Man who now holds the titled Mr. Sting, told CVM's On Stage host Winford Williams last week that he will not leave Sting venue after his performance because someone has to die lyrically at Sting 2007. He did not suggest who it will be but from the looks of things it seems as if Ninja Man is ready to take on an entire army.

Ninja Man also gave his views on this year’s front runners for DJ of The Year Award. He first started with Busy Signal saying that Busy is a very talented artiste but due to the fact he was not in command for most of the year, he will not hand the title to Signal.

“Busy did fall out of it in the early part of the year but him mek a come back but that is not good enough; you need to be hot for the entire year.”

Ne-Yo Dropped From R. Kelly Tour

Ne-Yo
photos_neyo_rihannabeyonce.jpgDon’t look for Ne-Yo at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN on December 9. The successful R&B singer/songwriter has been booted off R. Kelly’s “Double Up” tour, which is scheduled through January.

The tour was promoted with Ne-Yo, Keisha Cole, and J. Holiday as opening acts for Kelly. Ne-Yo performed in two shows. However, according to Kelly’s camp, there were contractual issues with the artist.

Ne-Yo issued a statement regarding his disappointment. "I love being on stage in front of fans because of the immediate feedback you get. You know right away if they are feeling you - and they were really feeling our show."

R. Kelly is no stranger to tour conflicts, though. In 2004, his “Best of Both Worlds” tour with Jay-Z ended abruptly after alleged attacks after their New York show.

The event which took place at the historic Temple Hall Estate, was attended by well over 2000 patrons who braved the intermittent rain to show love to Dancehall’s Bad Boy.

A bevy of artistes, who were scheduled to perform, never got the chance as Stone Love was rudely interrupted at around 4:30am by a Helicopter armed with high beam lights.

On the ground a strong presence of Soldiers and Local police, randomly searched patrons of which a few were detained for questioning and later released. Reports state that a fire arm was retrieved from the premise, but no one was held in connection to its find.

However the party continues on December 14th in New York at Club Amazura and will feature Bounty Killa, Munga, Hip Hop Superstar Busta Rymes and Wyclef Jean amongst others.

Mavado rose from the Dancehall underground scene in 2005 with the chart topping “Real Mckoy” on the Daseca produced “Anger Management” Riddim.. His debut album “Gangsta Fi Life” was released earlier this summer under the VP records imprint. It has reportedly sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.

Reggae singer Tarrus Riley shows his 'Lion Paw'

Tarrus Riley
tarrusriley_reggaetaurrusphoto.jpgTarrus Riley has recently released the video for his latest song Lion Paw LIVE. The video for Lion Paw LIVE was recorded in front of a live audience at the historical Ward Theatre located in Downtown Kingston and the Courtleigh Auditorium in New Kingston (Jamaica). The Lion Paw LIVE video features one of the best combinations of instrumentalists and musicians to ever appear on a video in Jamaica’s recent musical history. The ensemble features Oral Brown (Drums), Glen Brownie (Bass), Phillip James (keyboards), Mitchum “Klan” Chin (Guitar), Dean Fraser (percussion), Alvin Haughton (percussion) and Paul “Scoobie” Smith of Rootz Underground (keyboards).

According to Rastafari doctrine the lion paw is a symbol of strength and protection. The symbol is one that fits Tarrus Riley perfectly, as throughout his career he has sought, through his music, to give guidance and strength to his fans with lyrics steeped in Rastafari consciousness and philosophy. The track, Lion Paw LIVE, seeks to give strength to all ‘trodding’ on the journey and teaches that no evil can do you harm “cause dem caan squeeze mi lion paw”.

Lion Paw LIVE is the fourth video to come off Riley’s sophomore album Parables, which was produced by Dean Fraser of Canon Productions and released by VP records in October 2006. This video follows Stay With You, Beware and the number one hit She’s Royal.

Rihanna's naked fears

Rihanna
rihanna-bra-sexygirls-beyoncenaked.jpgRihanna is too scared to pose nude.

The stunning 19-year-old singer is famous for her raunchy music videos, but says she won't be tempted to pose nude - regardless of the amount of money she was offered.

She told FHM magazine: "I am only 19! My mother would kill me if I posed nude!"

A source close to the singer added Rihanna's new boyfriend Josh Hartnett wouldn't be too happy about his Barbados-born girlfriend stripping off for an adult magazine.

The source said: "Josh really wants to date someone sweet and innocent that he can take home to his parents. If Rihanna decided to pose nude, it would destroy the whole image she is building for herself as a singer and as a girlfriend."

While Rihanna has vowed never to strip naked for a photoshoot, she is happy to be seen as a "sexy" star.

She said: "Let's just say I want to do things my way. I can be stubborn. If someone wants to force me to do something, I'll end up doing the exact opposite.

"I have to be myself. If I want to be sexy, I mustn't restrict myself. I want to be young, fun and sexy."
