Bounty Killer and Upliftment Jamaica Present "Saddle to the East 2008"

The-Best-of-Bounty-Killer-Pt.jpgBounty Killer and Gary Foster present “Saddle to The East 2k8” An Annual Charity Concert held in St. Thomas, Jamaica, at Goodyear Oval. This concert benefits Upliftment Jamaica, a non-profit 501-C3 organization. Saddle to the East was originally scheduled to occur on August 30th, 2008, but due to the addition of more reggae artists and sounds it will be rescheduled for October 18, 2008.

Rodney Price stage name Bounty Killer, is one of the original kings of Dance Hall. He is a Grammy award winning artist who has a strong voice in the Caribbean community. He initiated Saddle to the East in 1999 as an effort to rally the entertainment sector to give back to their community. Originally held during Christmas season, the moderately priced show gives less fortunate populations the opportunity to see the biggest and best names in Jamaican music, proceeds are donated to schools and charities in the country’s inner-city communities. When asked what drives Bounty Killer to support his community he stated “I have been through a lot in my life. I carry the pain of poor people with me where ever I go! This show represents a genuine and sincere effort to do what I can do with my friends to impact poor people lives. We in the entertainment community have to stand up for our youths."

Upliftment Jamaica Chairman, Gary Foster has taken Upliftment Jamaica from strength to strength. He has not only managed to make a huge personal contribution of time and money, but also inspire others to do the same, to support a worthy cause. Gary Foster, a Political Science major, is a successful philanthropist and entrepreneur. He has worked closely with Russell Simmons, he credits his mentor, Dr. Benjamin Chavis for his avid philanthropy and faith. Aside from being colleagues, Gary explains the partnership between Bounty Killer and himself, he stated “I am very pleased to stage this show again this year with Bounty! Bounty has been a voice for the voiceless. We are always thankful for the support from the entertainment community! We need a greater cried for the youth of Jamaica". Saddle to the East marks the revival of Jamaica’s signature charity event-an evening where the biggest and best names in Reggae, Dancehall and Hip Hop come together to raise awareness and funds to support health, education, and wellness programs. Upliftment Jamaica serves Jamaica’s most disadvantaged and disconnected communities. Upliftment Jamaica aims to build optimism where it does not exist. For the first time ever Saddle to East will initiate a drive to collect school supplies for children in Jamaica, all patrons who enter the stage grounds with school supplies will be able to purchase a ticket at a discount. Jamaica has been plagues with a severe shortage of school supplies for their youth. Support this event because, Upliftment Jamaica successfully supports and provides opportunities to the under served populous, to establish ongoing transformation.

i will not even comment on the Grammy thing or the hating i will comment on the article

i think its a great thing bounty is doing for the poor youths of Jamaica and a plus with encouraging the patrons to bring supplies so that they will get discounted tickets this is what readers need to see not the Grammy side of it. We as a people need to unite and help one another it is not only the major things that count it is also the small things and people need to take a page out of rodneys book and do something for their neighbours and community take on two kids if you have the money to spare and help put them through school do you know how excellent our school system is in Jamaica when we go to USA they wonder why we are so bright and clever and excel so much and all u all can do is knock down the man not congratulate. Bounty mi love u always and forever true fan from the beginning and it is things like these when i see what you do for the community make me proud to be a supporter.

UNITY IN THE DANCEHALL

Sexyllisha! U have said it better than me! U hit the nail on the head! This is not about Bounty's Grammy! It's about his charity event that will help out a few more poor plp in jamdown!

Sorry hon, I don't mean to misbehave, but Gaza needs to be put properly ina him place!!!

Dat r*ss Gaza! A weh u feel like? Ur the one talking bout a nuh everything good plp do come in the newspaper! But a shit u a chat! Weh di f**k Beenie ever do for a charity? Tell me plz because mi never hear bout NONE! Maybe him did pay u B*TTY bill wen him done buss it up and u did consider that a charity which the media never wrote about!!!

When Bounty win di Grammy it was not highlighted in the media, but as him cuss 2 claat it reach di news before him even leave the venue!

U and all the haters need to get the f**k off mi man name!!! Besides! I don't have time to talk bad about Beenie, I just speak the TRUTH!!!

To p*ssyclaat man! Bounty a put on a charity show to help out poor plp and beenie put on summer sizzle fi help out him tax dem weh out fi jail him r*ss! Why di f**k u nuh guh think bout dat??? A big r*ss show like dat di fish put on and not even a dollar him put back into di poor plp dem community! Him mean nuh r*ss! If him did a help out charity then him tax demon dem wouldn't be on him so much!

Don't u know that as an entertainer ur taxes are reduced when u put on charity events? So why di f**k Beenie never mek di media write bout him charity events dem, weh u alone know bout, so that him tax dem woulda cut down little??? No man, him greedy, suh a dat reach him!!!

Gaza! Don't get me cross angry and miserable too! Because right yah now, mi ready fi kill off di wulla unu b*mbocl**t! Call mi man name ina u mouth and get u tongue cut off!

Gaza! I are warning u!!! Bad man nuh fren fish! Suh u deh deh a love up beenie like u want Rupaul to kiss off u r*ss face too!!!

Mi not even gonna waste no more time pon u, because me get f**k ina mi p*ssy and u get f**k ina u b*tty!!!

Mi done talk! Kaboom!!!

SOME PEOPLE ARE A DISGRACE TO HUMAN LIFE---THEY SHOULD BE COMMENDING BOUNTY KILLER ON THE GOOD HE IS DOING FOR SOME LESS FORTUNATE PEOPLE, WETHER YOU ARE HIS FAN OR NOT, HE IS DOING GOOD DEEDS WHICH SHOULD BE RESPECTED, THESE ARE REAL ISSUES OF LIFE.

Who write this article? An idiot? What kind of statement that bout "He is a Grammy award winning artist who has a strong voice in the Caribbean community". Come on now, statements like this is untrue & will make the man look like a fool to his peers, especially when trouble maker Beenie see this.

Big up to Bounty for what he has done for St. Thomas, God knows the rasta group from St. Thomas ain't doing what he has done.
