M.O.P features Demarco on a heart felt song portraying the harsh life on the streets and making it to success. The song represents both Brooklyn Garrisons and Jamrock Ghetto's..

M.O.P feat. Demarco “Street Life”

The first page that pops up when you google “M.O.P. myspace” is a link for myspace.com/mashoutpossegunit. The page is tricked out with G-Unit propaganda and even has a banner to pre-order 50 Cent’s latest album, dropping “9.11.09.”. Since bouncing around through more or less every powerhouse rap squad of the past decade, Mashed Out Posse endures for songs like “Street Life,” which sounds like they recorded it on a Brownsville stoop, Hennessy-filled plastic cup in hand. Demarco, who kind of made his name singing the ills of the shotta lifestyle, bookends Fame and Fizzy’s verses, no doubt singing to the garrisons of Brooklyn as well as Jamrock.

As the hype builds up for Appleton Temptation Isle (ATI), the promoters have announced that hip hop artistes MIMS and Kid Capri will be part of the Stages event, set to take place in  Negril  on August 8.

Mims and DJ Kid Kapri Booked For ATI Weekend

As the hype builds up for Appleton Temptation Isle (ATI), the promoters have announced that hip hop artistes MIMS and Kid Capri will be part of the Stages event, set to take place in  Negril on August 8.

CEO of Absolute Entertainment, Alex Chin, said he wanted to present something different. “We just thought it fit to bring some diversity to the event since we are known to have the same DJs each year,” said Chin.

He continued, “Adding a great performer as MIMS, and Kid Capri, who wears the title of World’s Greatest DJ, will broaden the list of musical talents that Jamaicans have seen, thus introducing them to a whole new world of hip hop music.”

The concept of Stages comes to life as both MIMS and Kid Capri will stage mind-blowing performances over the microphone and on the turntables.  He has toured extensively with multi-platinum artistes such as Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, L.L. Cool J, Busta Rhymes, Foxy Brown, Nas, Lil Kim Jay-Z, Usher, R-Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Dru Hill, and Aaliyah. He has also produced music for artistes like Snoop Doggy Dogg, 50 Cent, Heavy D, Camron, Big Pun and Jermaine Dupri.

MIMS, who is of Jamaican descent, became very popular with the single This Is Why I’m Hot.

His debut album, Music Is My Saviour, made the Billboardcharts, peaking at number four on the US Billboard 200. Other popular songs by MIMS include Like This and Move.

The ATI party weekend kicks off on August 5 with Chances. Other events include Hip Hop Jouvert, Tempted Glow, Pretty in Pink, Rhythm & Booze, ATI Toga Party, Stages, Jokers Wild Colours, Appleton Temptation Live, Wildsides and Fusion, closing the weekend on Sunday, August 9.

twin-of-twinsControversial dancehall artistes Patrick and Paul Gaynor, popularly known as Twins of Twins, were freed of fraud charges on Thursday morning when they appeared before the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court. The two brothers were charged several weeks ago for allegedly defrauding a fellow artiste of more than $50,000.Allegations are that the complainant paid the brothers the money to assist with the application for a visa.He went to the police to report that he could not make contact with the dancehall duo. However defence attorney Christopher Townsend told the court on Thursday morning that the entire matter was a grave misunderstanding. He said his clients were on tour in the United States and Europe when the complainant was trying to make contact with them. He said on their return to the country, the money was immediately refunded to the complainant.  Mr. Townsend said because the report was made to the police while the brothers were away, the police had to take action.

Possibly trying to recreate the ’90s throwback success of “Tuck In Your Belly,” Leftside just dropped the School Bell riddim,

Ghetto Palms 64: School Bell / G35 / Street Team Pt. II

What with all the raga soca, afropop, tropicalia and whatever the Payola riddim is, it has been a minute and a half since there was a straight ahead 90 bpm woomp/woomp/clack dancehall blend in this space. The last might have been the Street Team riddim in fact. Good thing a couple more artists have jumped on it since then, about the same time two new riddims in the same mode dropped.

School Bell / G35 / Street Team blend:
Elephant Man, “You a di Wife” (School Bell – Leftside)
Leftside f Syon, “Nuh Other Gyal” (School Bell – Leftside)
Lisa Hype, “More Pon More” (School Bell – Leftside)
Vybz Kartel, “Gaza Ting a Ling” (School Bell – Leftside)
Skilli Bangs, “From Now On” (G35 – Full 100/Vybz Xpress)
Kiprich, “My Money” (G35 – Full 100/Vybz Xpress)
Tifa, “Dem Ting Nuh Good” (G35 – Full 100/Vybz Xpress))
Bugle, “Bubble Like Soup” (G35 – Full 100/Vybz Xpress)
Timberlee, “Bubble Like Soup” (Ward 21)
Ron Browz, “Give Me 20 Dollars” (DJ Obsession Street Team refix)
Beenie Man, “Money Nuff” (Street Team – Fire Links)
Cham, “Dem fi Gweh” (Street Team – Fire Links)

Possibly trying to recreate the ’90s throwback success of “Tuck In Your Belly,” Leftside just dropped the School Bell riddim, a subliminal reference to Shabba Ranks’ “Ting a Ling,” of which this is basically an edit. Mr. Parkes definitely knows just how to flip the compression and echo on the pocoman drums, though, and this possibly comes tougher than the original. Ele, Vybz and Portmore Empress Lisa Hype all touch it as well as Leftside himself in a “Action”-style combination.

The G35 on the other hand is strictly new school, all bass and menace. The snare sounds like the air displaced by a cleaver chop and the ominous chords could be sampled or replayed from Bill Withers’ “Aint No Sunshine.” There’s a mess of strong versions, but as usual my favorite is one of the girls from TNT. Bugle’s “Bubble Like Soup,” meanwhile, seemed like a tribute or answer record to the Timberlee track of the same name, the 45 that originally put her on the radar, so I included it as well.

Lastly, Beenie turns in an answer record of his own, countering Mavado’s “Mockingbird” with “Money Nuff” on the same Street Team beat. Cham also piled on since I debuted it here about 6 weeks ago, and in case those weren’t enough reasons for it to break wide open, DJ Obsession threw together the necessary Ron Browz refix. No wifing in the club.

FAT JOE CRACKS FULLY LOADED CROWD

FullyLoaded

With the odds squarely against him U.S based rapper Fat Joe came out gunning at Fully Loaded on Sunday and when the show came to an end Joe was among the best performers of the night.

Decked in a red and white Polo shirt the New York veteran took the stage at minutes pass 2AM when the James Bond Beach crowd was eagerly anticipating some excitement and Joe delivered. Opening with a number of his more female friendly tracks like “What’s Luv” and “I Wont Tell” Joe took his time and tried to connect with the crowd but the response he was looking for didn’t come until he introduced his biggest record to date.

10 minutes into his set Fat Joe signaled to his deejay who then reeled off the classic hit single “Lean Back” which had 5-7 thousands strong Fully Loaded crowd doing the rock away. After that high energy moment Joe spoke to the crowd saying “I heard some people saying Fat Joe should retired, but they probably never heard this thing right hear” which introduced his next big song “Make It Rain” which kept patrons moving to the signature Scott Storch beat.

Fat Joe closed out his set performing a number of tracks for his long time friend and role model Big Pun before heading backstage for interviews and photo shots with his fans.

Despite the heavy rain that didn’t seem to end, Beres Hammond gave Toronto fans ‘A Moment In Time’ not soon to be forgotten

Beres Hammond Gives Toronto ‘A Moment In Time!’

beres

Backed by his Harmony House Band, Beres delivered an incredible show to thousands and thousands of fans who weathered torrential rain to see his performance at the staging of the 19th Annual Jamaica Day celebration in Toronto, produced by iPEG and Kaya Entertainment. Performing hit songs such as “Rockaway,” and “Tempted to Touch,” Beres could hardly get the words out as the massive crowd delivered his every word! Also performing songs from his 2008 album ‘Moment In Time,’ Beres delivered songs “Feel Good” and “No Goodbye” which unified the collective ‘rock’ of the crowd as they danced to his incredible performance.

After the show, Beres shared that he felt good about the performance, and was happy to be able to see his Toronto fans despite the heavy rain. “I feel Blessed” he said, “I’m happy we were able to perform and the fans had a good time!”

In addition to Jamaica Day, Beres performed at the Big Sexy in Oshawa, Ontario the night before which saw hundreds of fans treated to an up close and personal performance. The song “Putting Up Resistance” was especially well received as Beres reminded fans that despite Life’s pressures, we have to ‘put up resistance.’ Beres’s speech and performance became a little too much for one female fan who jumped on the stage to get a personal dance with Beres. Beres’s Manager and Security had to pry the lady from Beres, but not before she kissed him, and waved to the other ladies, triumphant at her closeness and saying “that’s right!”

Tito Jackson collects Michael’s lifetime achievement award

bobjackson Tito Jackson performed at the 17th annual Jamaica’s Reggae Sumfest over the weekend (25/26Jul09) before accepting a lifetime achievement award on behalf of his tragic brother Michael.

The Thriller hitmaker’s elder sibling took to the stage to perform with The Funk Brothers band as part of the festival in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Following the King of Pop’s untimely demise last month (25Jun09), organisers of Sumfest devoted the ceremony to honouring his career – and they roped in Tito to collect the star’s lifetime achievement prize. Other performers at the bash included Toni Braxton and Nas, who insists he will never forget the superstar singer.

He tells Entertainment Tonight, “I only spoke to Michael on the phone but that was still great. (I’m a) big fan of Michael, Mike lives on forever.”
