Flippa Mafia gives back to Trench Town High

flippa-mafia-outaroad.jpgIt's the Christmas season, and while some may refer to it as the 'silly season', it is also the time to spread joy and goodwill and that's exactly what the Flossing King, Flippa Mafia plans to do.

Flippa, who says he is really a philanthropist at heart, will be channeling his energy into a school fete for the Trench Town High School.

"As entertainers it is our duty to give back ... and if you really check it a lot of us donate to worthy causes. The public may not hear about it, but that's because we don't like to pose up for picture and send it to newspaper every time we do what we are supposed to do by helping the less fortunate," Flippa said.

Flippa was full of praise for the artistes who participate in the various high school tours, which see artistes in performance at various schools across the island and emphasising positive messages.

Gaza wins votes over Gully Richie B's Talk Show

vybzkartelmoneyponmiminddancehallraggaeempire.jpgThe dust has now settled and based on the survey conducted by Richie B on The Hot Mix programme on Hot 102 FM on Thursday Nov.26 in the ongoing debate of Gaza vs Gully, Kartel took home the winning prize, defeating Mavado by 28 votes to 22 votes...

This was Richie B's way of 'testing the temperature of current day Dance Hall' and it proved to be extremely exciting.....'you could hear the passion in the voices of the callers as they shouted Gaza or Gully respectively, but in an atmosphere of cordiality...many of them taking time to even pay respect to the side that they did not support, to call for peace between the camps and an end to the hostilities that the fans have been meeting out to each other, especially within the schools.

The programme was relayed all over New York City via Vibe One Radio and our regular internet listeners from all over the world (www.hot102.fm) had a field day...Calls/votes came in from many of these listeners, especially in Toronto and many parts of the United States.

"Mi nuh response fi Alliance or Gully Side" - Beenie Man

By Secret Agent
OutAroad.com writer

beenie-man-diss-bounty-killer.jpg"Mi nuh inna nuh argument wid nuh sUck fassy General or f**k B*tty government," are a few lines from Beenie Man's long awaiting diss single that signaled blows at Bounty Killer and Mavado.

Does this means Beenie Man and Bounty Killer will be facing off on stage once more?

Everything yuh talk bout man is just the same thing,
How mi a fish and how kartel bleaching,
Talk bout some a dat fassy dat yuh eating,
Wid knife & fork and a yuh got milk,
Be careful what yuh drinking.

Beenie Man then went on to re-arrange Killer's name from Bounty Killer to Horse Face and Mavado's to Gully Monkey.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killer might not get to face off at this year's Sting as it is still unsure if Beenie Man will be at Sting.

Taylor Lautner Gets Mobbed ... by Jamie Foxx

taylor-lautner-foxx.jpg
It isn't just screaming tween girls who are going gaga over New Moon star Taylor Lautner - one of the onscreen werewolf's biggest fans is Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx.

That's what Lautner found out to his great surprise at the Twilight premiere a year ago.

"There's tons of fans and we hear all of these high pitch voices and we hear 'Rah, rah, Taylor, Taylor!'" Lautner, 17, tells George Lopez on the Thursday airing of Lopez Tonight. "All of a sudden I hear this deep voice behind me: 'Taylor, Taylor!' .... And this guy walks up to me and he goes 'Hey ... my daughter is a huge fan, and I'm a huge fan is there any way I can get a picture with you. I'm Jamie Foxx.' I was like, 'Are you kidding me? Can I get a picture with you?'"

Rihanna 'embarrassed' by nude photo leak

rihanna-swim-wear.jpgRihanna has spoken out about the naked photos of her that were published earlier this year.

The singer was embarrassed when pictures she sent to an ex-boyfriend appeared on the internet.

'I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that and then, when that came out, I thought, "Oh great, so now there's nothing they don't know about me and my private life",' she said on New York radio show Hot 97.

'It was humiliating and embarrassing - especially my mum having to see that.'

But Rihanna, 21, admits she doesn't regret sending the snaps.

'If you don't send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel bad for him,' she added.

Cherine Anderson Finds "Real Love"

cherine-anderson-marie-mendoza.jpgCHERINE ANDERSON is a musical breath of fresh air. With recent success on the Billboard charts the young soulstress is wasting no time. Anderson has been hard at work expanding her creative horizons, recording her debut album and collaborating with new producers. All this she says is consistent with her eclectic blend of soulful music she calls Dancehall-Soul. The gifted songwriter recently released two new songs Hey Baby (Creator Riddim), a sexy and edgy dancehall tune as well as Real Love (Feminine Riddim), a heart-stirring love ballad. Both tunes are getting good rotation at local radio but Real Love is fast becoming one of the standout tracks from the Don Corleon produced feminine riddim.

When we caught up with Anderson she explained "All of us are searching for that person who make us feel special, someone we don't have to pretend with, someone who love us even with our flaws. I wrote Real Love for the men who make us women feel great all the time." With some cutting lyrics, Cherine declares on the second verse of the song.

The 'Teacha' Says Peace Talks Belong In Schools

Kartel Ready for Peaceful Solution to Gaza/Gully School Violence

Vybz%20Kartel.jpgDespite reports that Dancehall deejay Vybz Kartel has rejected rival deejay Mavado's olive branch by turning down his birthday party invitation, Kartel maintains that he is willing to put aside differences with his arch-musical-rival to call for an end to violence associated with the Gaza/Gully feud, particularly among high school students.

Both artists have been slammed by the local media, as reports of increasing violence at local schools between fans of the Portmore, or 'Gaza,' Empire led by Vybz Kartel and the Gully Squad led by Mavado continue to flood the news, causing even the government to be concerned about mounting social tensions stemming from the feud between the two entertainers.

On Friday, the Jamaica Star newspaper reported that Mavado was calling for an end to the Gaza/Gully war by inviting Vybz Kartel to attend his birthday party at Temple Hall on December 5th. The paper stated that Mavado's management said they wanted to publicly invite Kartel to make peace once and for all, as a show of unity to the nation.

Time A Get Harder - Jendah

OutAroad.com Writer

JENDAHPIClevelupthemusic1.jpgUp-coming dancehall artiste Jendah is calling for an end to poverty in the ghetto with his latest single "Time A Get Harder" which was produced by Press Play Productions.

Lines like "Ghetto yute a grow without father," is definitely a bad tradition that has been plaguing poor communities in Jamaica and round the globe.

Even though a lot of artistes chanted lines similar to "Time A Get Harder" the message can never be enough as crime and violence will always be around wherever there is strong presence of poverty.

Authentic dancehall lovers can expect great things from Jendah in the coming New Year.

The end of the world ... again

By Sara Veal
Jakarta

2012-movie-poster-picture.jpg

Disaster-movie king Roland Emmerich has decided we're due for another effects-laden vision of the end of the world.

This time it's not alien attacks (Independence Day) or global warming (The Day After Tomorrow), it's those darned ancient Mayans.

Not content with advancing chocolate and maths, to the delight and despair of schoolchildren everywhere, they've gone and predicted that the world ends on Dec. 21, 2012. Well, at least we get a movie out of it, one that's heavy on the action and easy on the eyes and mind.

2012 opens in the present day, as geologist Dr. Adrian Helmsley (Chiwetel Ejiofor) goes to India and learns there's been troubling solar activity that confirms the Mayan prediction that the world is going to fall apart in three years' time. (Don't worry too much about the science; in fact, if you need a popcorn refill this would be a good time to go).

Gully & Gaza Peace?

vybz_kartel_mavado_clash_sting_2008_photos.jpg

For the past few years, the music and fans have been separated by the Gully & Gaza feud, which got more heated when Vybz Kartel and Mavado faced off at the world's greatest one night reggae/dancehall show on earth Sting.

However, the heated feud might died before the end of 2009 as Mavado's manager Julian Jones Griffith told the Jamaican Star that the singer wants to publicly invite Vybz Kartel to his December 5th birthday party, at which they will shake hands for the betterment of the music.

This will be the second peace treaty if Vybz Kartel agrees. The first calling took place in March 2007 when DCP Mark Shields advised both deejays that the feud within the music industry is senseless. Will this be the end of the feud?

Vybz Kartel Will Be At Usain Bolt's Party

OutAroad.com made several attempts to get in touch with Vybz Kartel but was unsuccessful. But according to a source from the Portmore Empire the Teacha will not be able to attend Mavado's Birthday Party as he's contracted to be at Usain Bolt's SuperParty in St Ann, which is on the same night of Mavado's Birthday Bash.

Magnum '10 Long 10 Strong - Blazing

magnum-girls-tonic-wine.jpgOn Saturday night, persons in Cambridge, St. James got the early Christmas gift they rightfully deserve.

The Magnum '10 Long 10 Strong' free anniversary concert series kicked off in the community and it was nothing short of spectacular. Patrons can attest to the fact that too often do they attend shows and there are slight lulls in segments, this time, not so. The show kicked off at exactly 10 pm and Cutty and Marc Chin of Coppershot had the crowd rocking to the sounds of Dancehall songs of yester-year and in no time it was almost impossible to exit the tightly-packed venue.

But music wasn't all Coppershot offered. Comedians in their own right, they invited male patrons to dance to current Dancehall selections. Eagerly, three old men dashed onto the stage. "Sen' on a mix," Cutty told Marc.

Immediately all three men broke out into their best dance-moves. The eldest man on stage, did something that can only be described as 'the earthquake'...a really intense one. As the man shook, glided and did the 'robot' dance across the stage to the sounds of Vybz Kartel and more, he was soon declared the winner by the crowd. However, before he collected his Magnum gift basket and exited the stage, he asked to thrill the crowd one more time; this time with a different song selection. "Mi want one ah my kindah song dem so mi can do one nex' dance," he shouted to Cutty and Marc.

richiespicedancehallmusicreggae.jpg

Bonner Cornerstone Music recording artist Richie Spice has been receiving a lot of attention with his controversial new single titled Don't Call Me No Dog on the Sankofa label.

In this song, he sings a catchy punch line over the groovy Ital Jockey one-drop rhythm that goes like this:

Don't style mi as dog,
Dog a sittin weh mess up people yard,
Dog a sittin easily tek poison,
Don't style mi as dog.

Since its release a few weeks ago, Don't Call Me No Dog has been heating up the local airwaves on top radio stations such as IRIE FM, ZIP FM, FAME FM and HITZ 92 FM. It is also receiving strong support from dancehall selectors island-wide.

Gyptian releases another statement

mynameis-gyptian.jpg"Lately there have been some nasty rumors and allegations by so called anonymous sources that I have been a no show at event that I was paid for. These are flat out lies.

There are also promoters calling me now after they have allegedly paid money to Mr. Imran "Fire Peter" Passard, saying that they booked events with me. If Mr. Ivor Ruddock at Jus1 Productions did not book the show, then I was not booked.

For some reason these promoters only contacted my company after they allegedly paid monies to Mr. Imran "Fire Peter" Passard.

I can't find or get in contact with Mr. Imran "Fire Peter" Passard, but some of these same promoters are now calling me while I am on tour saying they got my number from Mr. Imran "Fire Peter" Passard but refusing to give me his number, Yet they are still trying to book shows through Mr. Passard, this I don't understand.

Lisa Hype Got Caught - I did it, so what?

lisa%20hype%20gaza%20cack.jpg

The latest drama to hit the dancehall circuit is a photo of Portmore Empire first lady Lisa Hype giving a "blowjob" to a male who many are speculating that it's someone from the Gaza.

However, up to late this morning when OutAroad.com got the photo it took us quite awhile to believe that it was actually Lisa Hype giving sexual favors to the upset sex, until we received a statement from Lisa Hype.

You Can Read Her Statement Below

First, I would like to say that there is no excuse for a picture of that nature to be a part of the public domain. I admit that the picture is real, but it captures a personal act done in the privacy of my bedroom. I don't know how that got leaked to the media and condemn anyone who would stoop to such a low.

However, I understand that I am a public person, and when I say or do something, either articulated and thought out, it carries weight in the public arena. As a result, I must assume personal responsibility for my actions. I would like to apologise specifically to all my female fans who might be disappointed to see me in this light. However, I don't apologise for the act itself because it was done with a man that I truly and deeply love and respect, and it was done in the privacy of my bedroom. I did it, so what?

Beenie Man's Manager Denied That Beenie Apologise For His Homophobic Lyrics

beenie_man.jpgDancehall artiste Beenie Man who's been facing a tough battle with Gay Rights over the past few weeks was quoted in an interview with international Entertainment News website 3news.co which stated that he apologised for his homophobic lyrics. The article was written by Dan Satherley.

However according to Beenie Man's Manager Blue the story was fabricated, as he has no clue of Beenie Man doing any interview with Dan Satherley of 3news.co.

Below are a few quotes that OutAroad.com took from the Dan Satherley article with the headline:
Dropped Big Day Out musician Beenie Man apologises

"When I wrote the lyrics boys were raped and murdered often - even recently a nine-year-old went to buy cigarettes for a man, came back and was raped and murdered. The act of sodomy was my concern when I wrote the song.

"In the past I offended others with offensive lyrics, I apologised then and now, I never took back my word. Our world is an interesting place filled with variety and we all have to respect others no matter what race, choices, culture or lifestyle. I am not a supporter of hatred and never was."

He concludes the email with a message for New Zealand and Australia: "Australia and New Zealand, please know that I am sincere and right now I am proposing peace, one world.... One Love regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation and nationality."

Dropped Big Day Out musician Beenie Man apologises

By Dan Satherley
3news.co Writer

beenieman-pic.jpgReggae musician Beenie Man apologised today for homophobic lyrics he says have been "misunderstood".

The controversial Jamaican superstar was booked to play at next year's Big Day Out music festival before outrage from gay rights groups forced organisers to drop him from the line up.

In an email sent out today, Beenie Man, aka Moses Davis, said the offending lyrics - where he called for the murder of homosexuals - were written "at a point in my life when I younger and was seeing a lot of exploitation of poor and defenceless young boys in the garrison - where I too was born - by rich men. When I wrote the lyrics boys were raped and murdered often - even recently a nine-year-old went to buy cigarettes for a man, came back and was raped and murdered. The act of sodomy was my concern when I wrote the song.

"I realise that those men were not gays, but were predators or paedophiles, which is not a common word in my dialect - hence the perception when generalising. I am older and realised the difference after," he wrote.

Five shots from Beyonce & Lady GaGa's 'Video Phone'

by Ryan Brockington

beyonce-lady-gaga-video-scenes1.jpg

Hey ladies, dance and shake it for me before pulling the trigger on my laser while I ogle you with my camera face and make you dance on a chair. Do it, Beyonce and Lady GaGa say so.

In a massive attempt to bring hype and shock, Beyonce has released her video for "Video Phone" featuring eight new looks (one of which is a major Rihanna rip-off) and glorified back-up dancer Lady GaGa.

I will admit the video is pretty to look at, and Lady GaGa holds her own next to a major capital D Diva, but the womanizing undertones and dance for your dinner chair routine have my tummy feeling icky. Check out four more of my favorite stills and watch the entire mess below. Is it me or does Beyonce look a lot like Kimora Lee?

Promoter Changes Course - Beenie Man pulled from Big Day Out

beenie-man-big-day-out.jpgBig Day Out organisers have backtracked and pulled controversial Jamaican performer Beenie Man out of next year's event.

Gay rights groups expressed outrage at the invitation to the January event in Auckland for Beenie Man, whose lyrics included "I'm dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays".

The Big Day Out website today said Beenie Man had renounced those sentiments, had signed the Reggae Compassionate Act in 2007 and had promised stick to "peaceful and humanistic values" at Big Day Out.

However, it said "the depth of feeling and hurt amongst these groups has convinced us that for us to proceed with his Big Day Out appearances was, and would continue to be, divisive amongst our audience members and would mar the enjoyment of the event for many".

A Facebook group had been started this week to protest Beenie Man's participation and boasted more than 900 members as of Thursday.

Janet Jackson Blames Dr. Conrad Murray for Michael's Death

janet-jackson-michael-doctor.jpgSpeaking out five months after Michael Jackson's death, Janet Jackson placed blame on Dr. Conrad Murray, saying the doctor should no longer be allowed to practice medicine.

"He was the one that was administering," she told ABC's Robin Roberts. "I think he is responsible."

Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, remains the focus of a manslaughter investigation into the pop star's death. Murray has admitted to administering the anesthetic propofol, but has denied giving Michael anything that should have killed him.

Jackson, who has walled herself in silence, fiercely guarding her private thoughts about the death of her beloved brother, Michael, opened up to Roberts in an exclusive interview that will air, Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 10 p.m. ET.

"It's been a tough year," she said. "You have your days where it's just really -- it's hard to believe. And a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him."

Jackson recounted the details of the morning of June 25, before she learned that Michael had collapsed, and her world turned upside down.

Gays Picking On Dancehall Music - Beenie Man Will Perform On Big Day Out

By J-Tymz
OutAroad.com Writer

beenie-man-big-day-out-sizzle.jpg

OutAroad.com gets to understand that the Big Day Out music festival promoter Campbell Smith will not remove Jamaican artiste Beenie Man from the much anticipated Big Day Out line-up to be held in Auckland on January 15 2010.

According to reports from Radionz, protesters say they will disrupt the performance of Beenie Man, who has in the past performed homophobic songs which include lyrics inciting violence towards gay men and women.

The gays are holding a grudge against Beenie Man for a song he wrote back in 1999, which they claimed, incites violence against their kind.

Why They Only Pick On Dancehall Music?

Reggae DJ Stinky Jim said he's not a supporter of dancehall music with homophobia lyrics, but said it is a reflection of the Jamaican society.

"Why don't they pick on Hip-Hop artistes? It's not just Dancehall this goes on in. It happens in other forms of music, dancehall is the scapegoat, I think it's because it's a poor music that doesn't have major cooperation and backing and it's an easy target. I can't believe that by harassing artistes and making a witch hunt it's going to improve the situation. Stinky Jim told Radio New Zealand.

Mr Campbell Smith says that they will meet with the Beenie Man from there they will advised him not to perform offensive material at Mt Smart Stadium on the day of the show. However, there are no plans to cancel the Jamaican Star from the show.

Get Ready For Dem Bittah On A TV Near You - Prodigal Son

Prodigal-son-gospel.jpgSince his arrival on the local music scene in the earlier part of this decade Gospel, deejay Prodigal Son has made quite a name for himself both locally and internationally. His hard-hitting messaged laced gospel tracks feature pulsating dancehall beats that move Christians and none-Christians alike. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that he has crossed over from traditional gospel markets into secular markets. It is a known fact that songs such as his most recent chart topper Head Caan Hot So are very popular in the dancehalls and receives the same treatment from radio DJs and sound-system selectors as any popular secular song.

From the beginning of his career under the guidance of famed musician/producer Danny Browne Prodigal Son has consistently delivered potent hit singles such as I Wish, Woe and Radikal Style all of which are very popular in the mainstream market locally and the ethnic market abroad.

Prodigal Son is currently promoting his latest music video which was done in support of his single titled Dem Bittah. The video was conceptualized and directed by him and his Radikal Yawd label's in house producer/ music video director Rayon Smith aka The Professor. The video was shot at several locations across Kingston and was released to local television stations last week. Several music industry insiders are predicting that Dem Bittah, will definitely be another big hit for Prodigal Son. He is also enjoying good rotation on radio stations with another single titled Ghetto Cry.

Chris Brown Fans React To 'Crawl' Video

By Rya Backer
MTV NEWS

chris-brown-crawl-video-rihanna.jpg

On Friday morning, Chris Brown's new video for "Crawl," the second single to get the video treatment from his upcoming release Graffiti, made its debut. The clip, which depicts a bespectacled Brown singing about how people need to crawl back to love, also features shaven-head sensation Cassie as Brown's love interest. The ballad is at least a little bit about Rihanna, and the video seems to make references to her and their relationship.

We took to the streets of Times Square to see what people thought of Brown's latest foray into short film. Reactions to the song and the video were mixed.

"It was a decent song. After everything that's gone on, it's kind of hard to support him," explained Lindsay, a student in town from Kentucky.

"I think it sounded fine," added her friend Katie. "But I don't know, I think it was a kind of failed attempt to tell everyone he's really sorry. I don't think it really did anything for me."

Beenie Man may be banned from Big Day Out

By David Farrie

beenie_man_2.jpgThe Big Day Out music festival is facing pressure to get rid of one performer called Beenie Man.

The reggae musician has been banned from playing in other countries for his strong anti-gay views, and critics say he should get the same treatment here.

He is recognised as a skilled musician but it is his lyrics that are causing a stir.

"It goes beyond disagreeing with the way we go out and kill a gay."

A Facebook group protesting against Beenie Man's Big Day Out appearance is rapidly gaining traction, with over 1000 members since starting on Tuesday.

"The Big Day Out is one of my favourites," says protestor Kat Jenkins

"For me it's my favourite day of the year and so to have someone there saying they want to hang and murder some of my best friends is just wrong!

Organisers released a statement saying the Big Day Out's core values include those of tolerance and understanding.

Livup Records Gets Stronga

Liv-Up_Black_logo.jpgLivup Record's "Good Life" is undoubtedly the riddim of 2009, spawning four #1 records, garnering crossover airplay on New York's HOT 97 and sounding just as fresh in dances and on radio today as it did when it dropped like a nuclear bomb at the top of the year.

Not resting on their laurels, Livup Records has rolled out its latest project, flipping the script (in more ways than one) by releasing a one-drop juggling - the Stronga riddim.

Paying homage to the traditional roots of Reggae, the Stronga riddim was built by a live band - arranged by musician Yahbell, a refreshing move in today's digital soundscape.

"Just as we got the authentic Dancehall vibe from Serani literally building the Good Life riddim on the corner with equipment strung up in his truck," said Country, of Livup Records. "We wanted to get that authentic sound of Reggae music, so this project couldn't be further from the Good Life project in terms of the live instrumentation we employed."

Beenie Man For BIG DAY OUT 2010

beenieman-toronto-show-artiste.jpgIt's time to turn up the sound system and welcome the king of the dancehall, BEENIE MAN, to BIG DAY OUT. From Kingston, Jamaica comes the chart-topping, Grammy-winning master of reggae evolution, who during more than 20 years in the game has pumped out dancehall smashes including The Girls Dem Sugar, Who Am I, Slam and Gimme Gimme. On stage, he's a nattily-dressed "livewire lightning rod of a man, pumping adrenaline and feeding off the beat" (OC Weekly). And if all that weren't enough, the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt, counts BEENIE MAN among his favourites. Stand back - BEENIE MAN will be setting off dancehall dynamite at BIG DAY OUT 2010 on January 15th at Mount Smart Stadium, Auckland.

America's new favourite big beat soul popsters PASSION PIT are bringing their musical gifts to BIG DAY OUT 2010. Led by singer/songwriter Michael Angelakos' funk-fuelled falsetto, PASSION PIT's debut album Manners comes alive with kaleidoscopic soundscapes and plentiful ambition. On stage, they're chaotic, oddball and impossible not to dance to. They're the only pit we recommend you dive right into.

The hardest-working men in dance music, James Ford and Jas Shaw never stop moving. And you won't either, when SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO DJs work the Boiler Room into a frenzy at BIG DAY OUT. From the Brits who brought us We Are Your Friends, Hustler, It's the Beat and 10,000 Horses Can't Be Wrong, we can guarantee one thing: surprises. "Their samples are eclectic, their sound is electric, and their energy is, well, orgasmic." (killahbeez.com, March 2009). A year ago, we lapped up their live show.

Rihanna Watched Dad Abuse Mom

rihanna-and-daddy.jpgIn her very revealing 20/20 interview, Rihanna revealed that, long before she and Chris Brown were dating, she had experienced the heartbreak of domestic violence. The singer told Diane Sawyer when she was a child she witnessed her father beating her mother.

"I always anticipated it happening," Rihanna said. "At night I wouldn't want to sleep, because I was too afraid it would happen. She never went to the hospital, but he broke her nose...Domestic violence is not something that people want anybody to know, so she would just hide it in the house. I always said to myself, 'I'm never going to date somebody like my dad, never.' I always said that."

But last February she found herself in a similar situation to her mom's, where she was repeatedly hit by the person she loved. But, even after Chris' attack, Rihanna couldn't just walk away from her love.

GT Taylor's Christmas Reggae Extravaganza 2009 - Last Event Standing

gt-taylor-extravaganza.jpg

GT Taylor's Extravaganza has become one of the few remaining calendar events that have ridden out the worst of the recession to be among the "last events standing". What began in and around other calendar events including Sting, with reservations of its December 25th staging, has become, pardon the cliché, larger than life. In its ten years Extravaganza has seen strided achievements. The event began with support from the entertainment arena, for which the Irie disc-jock GT "one up straight up" Taylor has given insomnia-like support to. Dubbing himself the "dance hall master" GT Taylor has represented the ambits of Jamaican music reggae and dancehall on all fronts.

Taylor who came to the reggae radio in the nineties with a distinct sound and willingness to speak the language of the common people, with its slangs and slurs earned disciples in Irie FM "residents" in radio-land. GT Taylor would keep listeners up on a Thursday - Friday Night with cutting edge new releases, mind reading selections and mustering of everyday people. Like religion, taxi operators, higglers, the little corner shops, and every little crevice where Irie FM was coming through your radio would tune in like clock work would tune in to "the dance hall master".

Spice Answers Kartel - "Yuh did a look mi yuh cyaan say a lie dat."

spice-kartel-counteraction.jpgDancehall artiste Spice has released yet another controversial stinger, this time, by the name of Chattie Back. The song which throws lyrical punches at Vybz Kartel is a counteraction to the previously released Gal A Whe Mi Do Yuh? (Do Mi Dat) by Vybz Kartel featuring Sheba.

In the latter song, the character Sheba plays a fed-up girlfriend who adamantly says she will be seeking revenge on Kartel's cheating character. Sheba's character also throws Spice in the mix, singing: "Mi have a strong feeling say yuh touch Spice", to which Kartel responds, "Me and Spice ting, ah fren sum'n."

In her counteraction, Spice has a lot to say on the matter. She deejays, "Everyting yuh do me, mi ah go chattie back. Yuh did a look mi yuh cyaan say a lie dat." The feisty rendition also has the lines: "Yuh a beg mi fi lef mi baby fadah an mek mi an yuh married and ting..."; she goes on to highlight a text she has on her phone as proof.

No Games Sold 1100 units - released without Universal Republic

serani-no-games.jpg"It's tough out there but we are remaining positive and focused on developing Serani as an artist and a brand," said Julian Jones-Griffith, Serani's manager, in the aftermath of shifting a little over 1100 units first week of his debut album, No Games. "We are lucky that we have venture partners who believe in Serani, will stay the course and roll out a third single. They share our vision of artist development and breaking him in new markets. When you think, how far Serani has come in terms of profile and mainstream airplay in under 2 years as an artist it's a phenomenal achievement and hes out-paced many acts who have been on the scene for years. We're closing in on 100,000 single downloads overall since we rolled out, which is huge, and I'm confident we will get where we want to go."

In a climate where album sales have been culled dramatically in the space of a few short years, everybody has felt the brunt of the decline. Sean Paul came off the back of 4 million sold and did 28k first week. Sony rolled out 225,000 units first week for Sean Kingston on the strength of a huge Billboard hit and he shifted less than 15,000.

"This happened to me. … It can happen to anyone," the singer, 21, tells Diane Sawyer in an interview airing Thursday on Good Morning America and on 20/20 on Friday.

Rihanna says it was particularly difficult because of the special place Brown held in her heart: "He was definitely my first big love."

Both singers have worked to move on. Brown is serving his sentence and working on new music, his album Graffiti will drop Dec. 15; and Rihanna is shaking things up with her edgy fashion and releasing her fourth album Rated R on Nov. 23. The album's first single "Russian Roulette" debuted last week.

Screams, teary eyes, and chorus like chants, greeted the lineup of musical ambassadors as they made their exit from the tour bus as it came to a halt on the compound of the Mannings High in Westmoreland recently.

It was week four of the RE School Tour, and it was the first time that the tour had travelled to the West.

With the threat of rain hugging the outskirts of the venue, the entertainers which included beat boxer Mixing Lab, dancehall's newest bad girl Stacious, gospel artistes Goddy Goddy and DJ Nicholas, Timberlee, Tifa, D Angel, I Octane, Konshens, Chino, G Whizz, Etana, Queen Ifrica and Alaine, all delivered exciting sets, spliced with the abstinence message.
