The General Takes Over

Bounty Killer Locks DownBrooklyn on Labor Day

BountyKiller-Caribbean-City.jpgHundreds of revelers, some still dressed in their West Indian-American Carnival gear, crammed into the Caribbean City Night Club on Labor Day to hail the 'Five Star General' on his long-awaited return to the Big Apple's Caribbean core--Brooklyn. After a stellar performance at Manhattan's famous Roseland Ballroom, iconic Dancehall deejay (MC) Bounty Killer stormed into Brooklyn dressed in his signature 'full suit of black' and armed with an arsenal of tunes from his 17-year catalogue of hit singles. Delivering one of his best performances to date, the 'Warlord' officially locked down the borough, bringing the Labor Day weekend festivities to a powerful close.

Only blocks away from the West Indian-American parade route, carnival masqueraders began lining up outside of Caribbean City as early as 8pm. Event promoter, Brooklyn's signature selector (DJ) Steelie Bashment alongside Troopa Traloopa, Tek-9 Movements, Johnny Killer, Suga Slick, Stereo Choice, Earth Ruler's Lee Major, Spin City, and Mr. Googles, and event hosts Nikki Z of Irie Jam Radio and Waah Gwan Radio's Steve Austin kept the crowd going for well over five hours until the 'Warlord' arrived at 2:30am. Dancehall deejay Spragga Benz and Reggae legend Sugar Minott were among the throngs of fans, entertainers, local industry executives, and media rammed into venue.

Bounty Killer, who arrived with fellow entertainers Etana, Spice, and Angel Doolas, was in no mood to dawdle or delay, jumping into performance mode almost immediately after hitting the club. After brief but well received performances from Etana and Spice, the ever 'cross, angry, and miserable' Killer touched off into a nearly hour-long performance, going from 'bad man' classics like "Lodge," "Coppershot," and "Can't Believe My Eyes" to socially conscious tunes like "Look" and "Poor People Fed Up," and the uncharacteristic lover's anthem "It's Ok." He finished his set with his more recent material, including the much talked about singles "Just Mek a Duppy" and "Chattabox."

"This is by far one of the best performances that I have seen Killer give," stated a patron who went by the name Jay, adding that the performance was 'maaaadd.'

"Bounty Killer is an icon," states Steelie Bashment. "This event was really a last minute thing, we only had three days to promote, and in three days the thing just 'sell off.' If I had a whole month, I might have had to keep it at the [Madison Square] Garden," he joked.

yes,gwan do yu thing general,just make make some good music and give more good performance and dont forget that your fans still dehyah and were a more mature set of people so a big people thing wi deh pon.movado and kartel them fans is from a younger generation and nothing is wrong with that because there something for everyone so just do yu thing and behave like a big man and dont let little pickny draw yu out because you a the bigman and you have a loyal set of fans so stay focuss we like when yuh mash up the place with your performance not the tracing.oh and mi need a new album to add to my bounty killer collection.

killa ade real general.we have seen the best of Kartel 5-7 years ago Kartel is overrated and simply ran out of ideas like a great writer on his last vacationKartell will be in the class of the like of Allen Iverson - great potential and natural talent that many would kill for; a gift that surpass all boundaries in their fields, but due to poor discipline, negative influence, immaturity, etc, Kartel won't even si 30% of him potential
