Mavado on Thisis50.com & MTV

mavad0_and_sway_mtv_host_photos.jpg

Jamaican superstar Mavado is being heralded as the savior of Dancehall, very ironic after years of vilification in the media, but it’s easy to see why. Currently breaking barriers for Dancehall music, Mavado is firmly entrenching himself in the fabric of US popular culture. Another round of promotion in New York saw Mavado make an appearance at the MTV studios in Times Square, where he recorded an in-depth interview with Rahman Dukes for the station's flagship MTV News slot.

From there it was on to the G Unit offices, to record an interview for 50 Cent's wildly popular entertainment website www.thisis50.com. The videotaped interview will go up on Sunday on thisis50.com and will run the whole of next week, coinciding with the March 3rd release of Mavado's sophomore album "Mr Brooks - A Better Tomorrow."

MAVADO CREATES MORE HISTORY

With the release of his sophomore album Mr Brooks - A Better Tomorrow, on digital format via iTunes exclusively a week prior to the physical CD release, Mavado has once again broke new ground for Dancehall. Since iTune's inception almost 6 years ago, Bob Marley's timeless "Legend" album, voted the album of the 20th century, has been the #1 selling album on the Reggae section of iTunes. Today that changed for the first time ever, as Mavado took the top spot with his "Mr Brooks" album, released yesterday.

With a hectic promotional schedule set for its physical release next week, including in-store signings and an appearance on HOT 97's Angie Martinez show, Mr Brooks certainly looks set to continue the huge strides he has made since bursting on to the scene just 3 years ago.
The album is available at www.itunes.com for purchase.

Madd ting, Mavado is the best. Kartel's best song in his career so far is the one where he is disssing Mavado, (I heard he plans to make a video for it) becau his highest hits ever on youtube, living off an international star huh?. Well him seh dont run, Vado shudda tell him seh, mi kill u already so mi a cut and go do mi global ting, no need fi dwell over sting for monnths, Kartel had di time fi go on and on with the beef, and go mek a song di next mornin and the day after, etc......becau him nuh have nuttin big really goin on for him.
MArch 2, mi nuh go miss di show
Right now Kartel a wait fi Sting 2009 fi clash Mavado, dats all him have fi him career, and mek another Mavado dis song....thats the only way you can climb the charts, you might go to BET wid last man standin, but Vado a keep it gangsta special. He doesnt need u to shine but u need him

Me love fi see when a DJ a tek it to the world and not watering down the music.

Mavado might mek di broadcasting commission free up the ban, a same so dem use to fight BOB in his tiem until the world start gravitate to him dem we start run him down and a claim him as ours turn him inna icon, same so dem use to bash Sean Paul a say him music boring and him lame see it Sean Paul go mash up overseas, Mavado get nuff fight say him dunce, say him a barber all sort a things and di big man hold him focus and tek it to the world, yow me feel proud me naw lie.. I listen to kartel me naw bias him more lyrical still but Mavado has what it takes to rise and that is more important money over crab ina barrel.

GWAAAN THROUGH YOUTH.. YOU FATHER MUST PROUD A YOU ANYWAY HIM DEH INNA DI AFTER LIFE!!!!!
