Mavado – “Dancehall’s New King?”

 

dhusacover-1What is considered a king of dancehall? So far there have been kings such as Bob Marley, Shaggy, The self proclaim king himself Beenie Man and questionably Dutty Cup’s own Sean Paul. Can Mavado live up to these expectations… we ask that question.

David Brooks aka Mavado hail from the streets of Cassava Piece in Kingston Jamaica is the hottest thing in dancehall right now. Known for his melodic vocals his music has crossed borders that most Jamaican artists dream about. Collaborating with the likes of 50 cent, Busta Rhymes and also recording on a Kanye West track for Jay Z’s  forth coming album the Blueprint 3, with this international success he is undoubtedly the hip hop voice of Jamaica.

With his current hit single “so special” receiving crazy airplay on American radio and his new album “Mr. Brooks Better Tomorrow” climbing the billboard charts he has cemented jam-packed shows in the UK, that also featured Serani, Bugle, Chase Cross and Alliance selector Boom Boom, Mavado moved on to his first-ever European Tour Visiting 6 countries for 9 shows in 10 days across the continent, Mavado has been met with nothing but love, underlining the international appeal of his music and message.

“The response everywhere we’ve been has been mad,” said Mavado. “Paris was the first show and it was crazy, the venue was packed and the crowd sang every word. It set the tone for the rest of the tour which has just been more of the same.”

dscn0089 Traveling by day and performing night after night, Mavado has so far blazed through France, Belgium, North and South Italy and across Switzerland, and will finish up with shows in Germany, Holland and US.

Whilst every show has left the crowd in rapture, perhaps the most poignant appearance was in Zurich, Switzerland, the city where his Father was killed over 3 years ago. Mavado got the chance to meet with some of the elder Mr. Brook’s friends, who knew him as “King” and to cap off a memorable visit Lee Scratch Perry, who is based in Zurich and was also a good friend of Mavado’s Father, attended the show.

With all these achievements and accomplishments and ongoing success can we now truly say that Mavado the Gully God is now the king of dancehall? Since the controversial battle at sting his nemesis Vybz Kartel now has numerous top 10 singles in “Jamaica” and can be heard practically on every new dancehall riddim that hits the streets, Should Vbyz Kartel be dubbed the king or is he just second best, what makes them different?

    "Questionably Dutty Cup’s own Sean Paul." ??? QUESTIONABLY?
    Who can question that Sean Paul was and IS STILL Dancehall's king? Everything that man touches becomes a worldwide hit. No wonder why he got international...

    BOB MARLEY IS REGGAE "GOD" - just wanted to get that across......

    ok..........
    ask yourselves this question...........

    is there any other logical choice for dancehall's throne(without bias)?

    there comes a time when you have to give to cesar in this case beenie man, whats due to him...

    beenie man has been providing us with good music for as long as i can remember, bias is all over the music business, we've seen good deejay's come and we've seen good deejay's go, but who's still here putting out hits? who's still drawing big crowds at shows?

    ok, lets throw bounty killer into the mix, bounty killer could not pull 300 people at a recent show in amazura, and bounty killer has nothing on the charts......

    beenie man pull a crowd of over 5000 by himself recently at a show in the city, here in new york......

    yes, yellow man rained supreme, but to me it was short lived, after 1992, yellow man was pretty none existent....

    shabba, short lived(but still pulling major crowds at shows)

    Lt. Stitchie, short lived...

    Papa san, short lived....

    kartel, not there as yet...

    mavado, will never be in the running(ever!)(EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    sean paul, will never be in the running(ever!)(EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    there has been only one artist, one consistent artist, one artist with that "longevity", to be crowned king, you'll need longevity on your resume and beenie man has that, 20+years, of not falling off, spear heading the 90's(the golden years of dancehall), beenie man killed the 90's, he's been artist of the year so many times, it's not even fare to beenie man you guys asking this question, matter of fact it's not even fare to the other artist, because also they know that there is only one logical choice and it's not them!

    A Pure argument a gwan over who king. Sean Paul cho ya madd. Yes him have some good tune, but like one man seh. Him cyan hold a sting crowd, fully loaded or any other event. Beenie Man have nuff hit and him a work from what 10 years old. A nuff respect fi dat. Year after year him put out some good tune. But king ??? Beenie tune nah have a lasting effect him nah really represent nuttin, its just a tune. Weather it be gyal tune, ganja tune, gun tuen, batty man tune or whatever its just tune. Kartel lawwd di man deh wicked, Gaza God fi real. Him have nuff tunes and cyan hold any crowd anywhere. Nuff respect fi dat. And mi nah try fi dis him at all. But him voice nothing like Mavado.
    If yuh mek dem to man sing di same song dem nah compare. Mavados voice a haunt you. If Mavado song a play ya know it him, right. Like di tune "On the rock" Even if yah nuh like Mavado, yeoww when ya gone a dance mi shure ya raise your hand and sing along. So maybe dat why dem wan mek Mavado king. Tune fi tune mi rate Kartel and Mavado, but stil the voice ya cyan compare. Nuff respect to both artist. Jus jah works a gwan.

  • straight talk

  • saucy

    "If you live long enough, the world will thrash your trophies"

    Mavado - Still has a long way
    Kartel - Not even close. Mi nuh use sentiment fi judge but kartel nuh ready yet...Yeah d man get tune but his music are either about pussy or Gaza. I'm yet to see some diversity in his music...A true king can switch it up and diversify...check out Kartel's attempt to real conscious tune pon season's riddim...one word WEAK!.
    Beenie - A well balanced artist and rightfully deserved the title right about now..

    a lot of these kids running around screaming Kartel/Mavado were born in late 80's - early 90's...wha dem know bout real music ? ...NUTTIN!

  • http://facebook nigel

    mavado a di king vybze skettel cant compare or di fish killa a di emperor

  • Kirk

    It's interesting that Mavado with a mere four years in the biz is being given a crown yet Beenieman who has been atop Bounty Killer is still referred to as 'Self Proclaimed'. It just shows the deep hypocrisy that exists by individual in main stream media who are basically pro - Bounty and still hoping he can make it big time. Mavado's recent album sold 14000 copies. That's nothing near the sales of Shaggy, Sean, Shabba, Mad Cobra, Beenieman or even Elephant man. If Kartel sings only about Gaza and pussy, then Mavado sings only about marrow pon tar and cover versions of Tupac's Music.
    Hate it of love it. Beenieman is the King of Dancehall.

  • Ookubit

    I'm feeling Mavado! They asked about Dancehall Kings didn't they? How Fartwell come eenah dis? Man a King, don't... an woman a queen. DEm never ask bout Dancehall Queen!!! Does Fartwell fall into the category of men anymore. All bleached out and fagotty?!! He disgusts me!!! I rated him more when he just came out as a kool artist with lots of potential but now she's a freak. DOn't get me wrong, i still like some of his songs but i'm jus not feeling his style. Don't be surprised if the next time u si him dressed like fucking Rupaul!!! All Fartwell does is call up ppl name eenah him songs fi get hype!!! Fartwell is a fucking retard!!! I don't like the animosity between the two (Gully/Gaza) but i rate Alliance/Gully.

  • Ookubit

    Oonuh low Movado mek him survive cause the youth naaaw beg oonuh nothing oonuh fucking haters. Him doing well all over. Not only in Jamaica. Fartwell need fi clean up him funny act. Mi naaaw lie, mi miss the old Kartel. Him need fi stop bleach out him self and stop promote nastiness. No matter how lyrical he is, that's not the point and that's not what makes any DJ a King of Dancehall. Movado has more number ones and more songs on the charts so that's what makes a DJ. Not how lyrical he is!!! So, that's y Movado can become the next King of Dancehall. Beenie man nuh lyrical but him proclaim himself King, don't? Y? Cause of his chart topping songs and him neva write dem.

    Wah u seh? me nah getcha... yuh mek mi laugh my ass off.
    First unnu waah Dancehall music to be worldwide known, and when someone a tek it to di werld u come an diss him? Wah a di bloodclaat is wrong wit unnu?
    Shaggy nah tek it to di whole world. Neither did Beenie. Let alone Mavado or Kartel. Di only one who a tek it to every piece ah earth is Sean Paul.

    Just becah him nuh act like a badman, just becah him nah seh him a gangsta, just becah him nah clash with nobody at Sting, and just becah him neva diss nobody, you dont't like him? LMAO

    Di best melodies, and di smartest lyrics come from SP. Him may not ride all di riddims dem, but him above all ah dat. Beleee me, if him waan him woulda kick all a dem skinny asses mek dem drop outta di race. Yuh should give Sean Paul a likkle more credit, him deserve it, him earned it. Just becah him nah cuss, and him nah mek dirt chunes dem, it nah mean him ain't di baddesss... dont get it twisted.

    Me kno seh Mavado him a good singjay. And Kartel him depan every riddim out dehdeh, him lyrics dem kool too... but dont get it twisted. Dont let dem fool ya.
    Demarco a great artist too... dont figet him

  • Di Dads

    My artist is Mavado. The future of dancehall is on his shoulders. He still needs to prove himself more internationally and take the music further for him to be king. Kartel is a great lyricist but his tunes are hits regionally. He is in the business much longer than Mavado and he is older (34 to 28). This war has benefitted him because it breathed some life into what was a stagnant career. In terms of crews, well, people just look at who is touring and getting that international exposure...Gully mi say! Big up Killa for bussing Gully God
