You probably didn't expect to see a picture of Vybz Kartel here with a post title like "Love".
This is one of the songs I'm really feeling off of his new album "The Teacher's Back". Great vibe and flow here. Addi comes real smooth on this.
I'm telling you, when you see the album, buy it. It'll be well worth the money.
Lastly, to everyone in the US, Happy Turkey Day. We'll link this weekend.

Vice Kills Jamaica...

First off, large up the one Griff, representing the Netherlands, who put me on to this link.
About a year ago, Vice Magazine did a piece on dancehall music in Jamaica. Includes interviews with artists: Vybz Kartel, Chico, CeCile, etc. Both insightful and entertaining, I felt that I had to share with you guys.
Here is parts 1-9, in their entirety:

New Stuff..

It's been a whole week since I've last posted, and a few weeks since I've last posted a mix. Been real busy and I appreciate your patience.
There is a lot of good stuff coming out lately, and I'm getting together some material to record a couple new mixes ASAP.
For right now, though, I have some tracks that I'm blazin in my iPod for you.
First is a selection from Collie Buddz, Burro Banton, & Choppa called "Bust Out" on Massive B.'s new "Hard Grind" riddim. Next is three tracks from the much hyped "Clean Sweep" riddim: Tony Matterhorn & Pamputae "Some Do, Some Don't", Vybz Kartel "Kuff Kaff Kweff", & Bounty Killer "Social Responsibility".
Following that, I have two tracks from the upcoming album "The Teacher's Back" by Vybz Kartel: "Imagine" & "Addi Addi Addi". That album sounds like it's gonna set the entire reggae world on fire!
Again, thank you for your patience and I'll have a mix up this coming week!

Cry On Me

New one drop from the lovely ladies of Brick & Lace. I'll admit that when I first heard these gals I really wasn't feeling them. They had a couple tracks that were cool, but nothing that blew me away until this track.
"Cry On Me" is a heartfelt song with a beautiful melody. It is on my Oktoberfest Juggling mix which I posted a few weeks ago. (Click on "Oktoberfest Juggling" to go back to that post to listen or download it)


*CLASSIC* Superstar Riddim.

This is a nice classic that still burns today. It was produced by Andre "Rookie" Tyrell back in 2001 and features artists like Spragga Benz, Lady Saw, Sean Paul, Elephant Man, Buju Banton, Tanto Metro, and Devonte.
The big hit(s) were "Backshot" by Spragga Benz & Lady Saw and "Jukin' Punny" by Sean Paul.
Riddim tough.

  • buju banton "all over me"
  • elephant man "jigga"
  • elephant man "more fire"
  • tanto metro & devonte "sweet symphony"
  • lady saw & spragga benz "backshot"
  • sean paul "jukin' punny"

New DJ Khaled featuring Rick Ross & Baby Cham.

Fallen Soldiers (Benja Styles REMIX)

Another one from Philly's own remix-master Benja Styles. This time it's the smash hit from this past summer "Fallen Soldiers" by Demarco remixed over the classic hip hop track "Wrong Side of the Tracks" from Newark, NJ's own Artifacts.
Perfect to chill in a dim-lit room blazing some greenery.
Hit up Benja Styles:,, http://benjastyles/

Dancing Paradise

New stuff from the Chimney Records camp. Riddim called "Ole Crep".
This is dancehall how I like it.
Elephant Man interpreting a current R&B track, in this case Rihanna & Ne-Yo's "Hate That I Love You", then breaking out into this crazy verse the way only Ele can.
Also included in the .rar are strong tracks by Serani & Fire Linx.

Come Over (video)

I saw this video for the first time early this morning on VH1 Soul. Good stuff.
If you haven't heard my mix for when this track first dropped, listen or download it HERE.
Check for the cameo from the Firestarter, Kardinal Off!shall.

Ricky Rudie

New tune from Bling Dawg, aka Ricky Rudie. "Bye Bye" has a classic dancehall feel. I'm not sure as to what the name of the riddim is or if there are other tunes pon it, but I will keep you posted.

..not from the Smurf's, but dancehall vet Buju Banton. Just some of my favs from his catalog. So many hits from the last decade & a half, I may have to post more up. (Usual protocol for artists of this caliber.)
Here you will find hits that encompass most of those 15 or so years, from timeless club tracks like "Bogle" to consciousness on tracks like " Hills & Valleys", to current hits like "Water Man".

  • a so w/tony rebel
  • massa god world w/wayne wonder
  • murderer
  • only man (arab attack riddim)
  • sensimilla persecution (swing easy riddim)
  • hills & valleys
  • one to one
  • ride this (sleepy dog riddim)
  • paid not played (surprise riddim)

  • water man (unfinished business)
  • bogle

What the people gonna do?

New track that's pretty relevant to the times.

Such a great day yesterday. As everyone on the news said, we are all gonna remember where we were at when we heard President Obama won.
My girlfriend and I had just got off the 5 train at Gun Hill Rd. When we got upstairs, horns were honking, fists were in the air, celebration in the streets, and smiles everywhere as we found out that they made the announcement.
When I checked the NY Times on my BlackBerry, it said Obama had 271 electoral votes. What a feeling!
I have renewed faith in this system that George W. Bush almost destroyed. Everything looks a lot brighter now.
