Tarrus ‘lives the life of a gun’

tarrus-riley540

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Singer/songwriter, Tarrus Riley, tackles the rampant issue of gun violence in his third official release Living The Life Of A Gun, from his latest studio LP Contagious.

The lead single on the 18-track compilation, Living The Life of A Gun sees Riley masterfully stepping aside from his characteristic lover’s persona to deliver an infectious track laden with clever puns and weaved with stark realities. He juxtaposes his name to that of the similarly titled automatic weapon – the Taurus – giving the gun a poignant voice to detail its role in the rising scourge of violence in today’s society.

tarrus-riley“Me strike fear inna yu heart, All sorts of people a walk with me and nuh fraid fi pop me off. When me seh blow! See it deh, everything dead off in a second… look how much trouble I cause…”

Riley’s expressive lyrics on the Dean ‘Cannon’ Fraser-produced track rings an all-too-familiar tone of violence pursued in the name of war and plunder or similarly youths spewing shots in retaliation to social and economic frustration, ferocious accounts that hit close to home and witnessed daily by newspaper headlines and TV reports.

“I chose this song to be released as my next single because of its crucial anti-arms message and direct relevance to humanity today. I wrote it from the gun’s point of view and who better to tell the story of the gun than the man who bears its namesake? This Tarrus, however, is strictly against violence and asks, ‘What dem make gun for? Me no see no good whey it do round yah’. Guns wreak destruction and as it stands, even the man who makes the gun is afraid of the gun. Nobody wants to die so let’s put the guns to rest,” Tarrus declared.

A firm believer that positivity should always be spread through music, Riley hopes to impact change with his latest release. “Tarrus is not an artiste who will just give you solely love songs, we have to talk about ‘real’ things as well, which is why we sing Start Anew, Good Girl Gone Bad and Living TheLife Of A Gun. Domestic violence, drug abuse and gun violence are real offences in our society and as artistes we need to reinforce these reality-themed messages and help inspire change,” says the singer.

With artistes now being called upon to be more creative and wholesome in their lyrics, Riley’s diversity and conscientiousness sets him standards apart. “I am on a mission with my music. I always deliver positivity and even more so as we approach the New Year, I want to impress the message of love and peace – love is lovely and war is ugly,” he declared.

With the track gaining steady ground on local and international playlists, Tarrus prepares to shoot the video for the single this weekend with director Gareth Cobran (Konshens, Demarco, Morgan Heritage) at the famed Rebel T headquarters.

“I am looking forward to the shoot this weekend. Gareth and I have worked on projects before so there is great synergy there. The video will also have special cameos by some of the premiers in reggae and dancehall music including the legendary Joe Lickshot who does the introduction for the track. The treatment for the video is impressive and fans will see a different side to Tarrus Riley,” says the singer.

In addition to working on his new video, Riley is buzzing internationally and prepares to end a successful year with several dates in the Caribbean as well as finalising preparations for the Europe leg of his ‘Contagious’ tour which will kick off in January 2010. Earlier this year, Riley and his Blak Soil band toured multiple cities across the US and Canada earning rave reviews on his new album, talent, passion, and originality from publications such as Jet, Essence, The New York Times and many others.

Sean Paul wins first Reggae Award At Soul Train Awards

sean-paul-imperial-blaze

It was a historic night and historic moment in Atlanta, Georgia at the Georgia World Congress Center. Not only was it the first major event presented by the newly formed Centric (A network created by Viacom combining BET J and VH1 Soul), not only did the show do tributes to such legends like Chaka Khan, Charlie Wilson, L.A. Reid and the late great Michael Jackson, not only is this the first staging, after a tow year hiatus of the annual event, but this was the first time that the prestigious award ceremony had included the category of best Reggae artist. As a matter of fact the award for Best Reggae Artist was the first award given out.

The nominees for this category were strong contenders. Tarrus Riley a winner of such awards as album of the year, song of the year and new artist of the year in other award ceremonies. Tarrus Riley, son of legendary singer Jimmy Riley and now the protégé of legendary saxophonist and producer Dean Fraser, has been seen by many as a wonderful addition to Reggae music through his music, voice, lyrics and performances. Ziggy Marley needs no introduction; he is an international superstar that has been providing quality Reggae music and performances for decades, as the eldest son of the King of Reggae music Bob Marley he has won probably every prestigious award that a musician can win. Movado is currently one of the most popular artists in the Dancehalls of Jamaica and around the world, the Dancehall artist has crossover and underground hits that have been chart toppers for the past few years. Serani has produced and been a musician on many major hits; recently he became a vocal artist and has enjoyed several hits as a vocalist. The Wolmer’s alum currently enjoys crossover success with two of his hits and has recently dropped an album “No Games”.

The tweets and social media messages were flying all over the internet naming the nominee though that walked away with the prize. He is actually another Wolmer’s alum, the multiplatinum selling artist, Sean Paul! Sean Paul over the past seven years has easily become one of the most recognizable Jamaican artists worldwide scoring hit after hit in the mainstream landscape. Paul showed his appreciation on winning such a prestigious award and said it was a good thing for Reggae to be recognized, something that is long overdue. His latest album “Imperial Blaze” is his most successful international effort to date, charting number one in several countries around the world. He has had a very successful tour in different countries and continues to be an ambassador for Jamaican music. Paul has stayed committed also to using Jamaican producers who are very relevant. The next single off of his album will be “Hold My Hand” featuring Keri Hilson who was also nominated for three awards.

The Soul Train Music Awards was a star studded event and well produced. Production was done by Sunseeker Media. A Haitian American producer from Sunseeker was the show producer of the 2009 Soul Train Awards Red Carpet Show. Junia Joseph, the producer, ran a tight ship as she skillfully executed this extremely intricate and formidable task. When asked about the inaugural inclusion of the Best Reggae Artists Category Joseph said that, “I feel that the inclusion of the Best Reggae Artist category in the 2009 Soul Train Awards speaks to the influence of Caribbean music and culture in the world of mainstream music and culture. Credit must also be given in large part to Centric and its programming, which in its prior form always maintained a healthy dose of Caribbean rich programming content.”

Congratulations to Sean Paul and all the nominees for the Reggae and other Categories of the Centric Presents: Soul Train Awards 2009. It is a positive that the long overdue recognition is being given to Reggae music; it opens opportunities and doors for the Caribbean culture. The taping of this historic occasion will be aired on Centric on November 29 2009 it will show performances by Toni Braxton, Trey Songz, Erykah Badu, Robin Thicke, Fantasia, Ryan Leslie, Raheem DeVaughn, Karyn White, Boyz II Men, Ledisi, Chico Debarge, Angie Stone, Brian McKnight, Ginuwine, Melanie Fiona, and Johnny Gill. The broadcast will be hosted by Academy Award-nominated actors Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. So until next time LOVE, HAPPINESS and SOUL!

Sponsorship woes hit Sting 2K9

Layout1_1_PZDMRStingPicAMWhile die-hard Sting fans do all the possible permutations and combinations for a clash between Vybz Kartel and Bounty Killer and its outcome on December 26, Isaiah Laing is juggling figures as feverishly as a deejay preparing for the big night.

Laing, head of Sting organisers, Supreme Promotions, has said there is a $10 million shortfall in the budget

, which he is trying to constrain under last year’s production figure of about $30 million. With no major sponsor on board this year, he was hoping for the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) to inject some cash.

The sponsorship hoped for has not found substance and, with less than a month to go to Sting 2K9, Laing looks back to earlier days of putting on the show, saying “I have lost so many houses to the banks, but the half has never been told”. He said that has happened more than four times.

Major costs

Among the major costs for putting on Sting, which Laing said pulled in over 25,000 people to Jam World, St Catherine, last year, is security. “The stage Sting is at you have to run big bucks to do it properly. Last year security cost us almost $2 million. That is nothing to ensure the security of our patrons,” he said. Apart from a stampede at about 3 a.m., which Laing said was due to pickpockets, the concert was peaceful, even with a highly charged clash between Vybz Kartel and Mavado.

There is also a heavy advertising cost of between $4 million to $5 million and Laing said although the event is established he leaves nothing to chance and is always looking for new markets.

Annual crowd

It is not the first time Sting has sought sponsorship from the JTB, the first submission made in about 1992, and last previous attempt about five years ago. “I can tell them that Sting brings more visitors than any other show,” Laing said, pointing to a number of Jamaicans abroad actually booking their holidays around the concert. There is also an annual charter flight from Bermuda, which will carry in about 280 persons this year, and persons from as far as Australia, Europe and Japan.

Even at this late stage, he said, he is not giving up, saying “I would love to get even US$100,000 from them”.

There is, of course, the matter of Sting’s gritty image, and Laing said “the image can be changed”.

However, “every time we do clash we get a nice turnout and we see a profit”. When The Sunday Gleaner asked if he would put on Sting without a clash, if that was a sponsorship condition, Laing said “if they are giving me the kind of money they are giving to the other festivals, fine”.

This year’s Jamaica Jazz and Blues got US$500,000 in sponsorship from the JTB, but was turned down for similar support in its 2010 staging.

The supporters

“I would go into the show making a profit,” Laing said, adding that he could then do things that he knows would bring out the crowd. “Right now it’s the only viable way,” he said of the clashing or ‘face-off’. “It gets intense sometimes but I don’t believe people have to take it literally.”

He puts his sponsorship plight in the wider social context. Laing said “these are the things, when I look at it, that help to make the crime rate so high. We have two Jamaicas. We have Jamaica up the top and Jamaica down the bottom. How I’m seeing it, it’s either you’re rich or you are poor”.

“I would put myself in the poor category. This show is coming from way back when it is poor people who supported it. I can’t put it out of their reach,” Laing said, adding that by and large they cannot afford to go out of Kingston

for major music events and he tries to keep the price affordable.

He is reluctant, though, to add a sponsor’s name to the show’s title again. “I don’t want to give up my title again. When you have a title sponsor and they leave it is like a vacuum. Magnum came and left, Guinness came and left,” Laing said.

“It is going to be just Sting.”

Sean Paul Speaks about Street Cred in his interview with Nikki Z

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Each artist in the industry has a story to tell. The triumphs and the challenges. This holds true for the mega international recording artist Sean Paul. Late last week, Sean Paul’s Twitter followers would have seen his tirade directed at a particularly persistent follower, who told him “don’t fabricate street cred … be real” (among other things), apparently based on statements made by Sean Paul during a recent television interview on the Mo’Nique Show. Sean Paul was clearly not amused, and in an exclusive follow-up interview with Nikki-Z, he spoke further about people constantly styling him as UPT (uptown) – born with a gold spoon in his mouth.

Major Lazer, “Keep It Goin’ Louder” (Eric Wareheim Version)


It appears the original video for this song from our Summer Music cover stars just wasn’t weird enough, what with all the animated zombies and whatnot. So for round two, Eric Wareheim, who also directed “Pon De Floor”, puts a bunch of voluptuous ladies’ faces through the WTF Machine.

MP3: Busy Signal, “Nuh Fraid of Them”

busydhusa

Busy’s take on Drake’s all-star monster “Forever” cites many vessels of technology, but mostly it just got us wondering who was the first person to namedrop Twitter in a song. Pretty sure Nore was early in the cut with his verse on Cassie’s “Must Be Love” remix in first quarter ‘09 (She hit me on Twitter/then I gave her my email/Told her that my love come free/Just like Gmail—a verse that we’re almost positive happened in real life). Surely Puff has mentioned it somewhere, or has an archived verse of Biggie shouting it out that he plans to release on another “duet” album in 2012. But Busy’s Twitter check is the best thus far, coming amidst a barrage of brags til the beat drops out and he goes Whoa, as if he can’t believe he’s even uttered its consonants. The real wild thing about this is that he released this song via his Twitter, which further proves our theory that life in the internet is just an elaborate labyrinth made of mirrors—and if we take a wrong turn we will be eaten by a super-scary fanged clown in giant rubber shoes. Then our bones will get ground up and made into cat food. Shout to Poquito and Mochipet back home.

Vybz Kartel Demands $100,000(US) To Clash Bounty Killer & Mavado

vybzkartel

Gaza boss Vybz Kartel has made it clear that he wants to engage both Bounty Killer and Mavado simultaneously in a lyrical showdown on stage to mark the 26th anniversary of the popular Sting concert on December 26th (Boxing Day) at Jamworld, Portmore. Among the Portmore emperor’s list of demands was that he wanted U$100,000 (approximately J$9 million) from the Supreme promoters to battle the two alliance deejays at the same time.

“Mi waan clash Bounty and the Barba at the same time, mi ready fi deal wid it, but Laing have to pay me U$100,000 fi clash dem, and the band we use have to be Ruff Kut or it nah go happen” – Vybz Kartel added.

On Tuesday, November 24th, Sting had its 26th Anniversary launch at the Pegasus Hotel, though none of the three entertainers were in attendance the mood was still high and climaxed with some heated exchange from graffiti artiste turn deejay L.A. Lewis and Mr. G much to the delight of the fans. The two are currently embroiled in a court case after Mr. G allegedly used his license firearm to assault L.A Lewis over some unsettled payments.

Though many waited with bated breath during the presentation for an answer as to whether or not the promoters were going to grant Kartel his wish the answer unfortunately was not forthcoming. Promoter Isaiah Laing however did highlight that this year would not be another Gully-Gaza clash as that was done last year and what transpires from here onwards will be determined by the atmosphere leading closer to the event.

…………………………………………………………
‘Never let me go’ – ls the latest project to hit the airwaves in November by Shaggy.  The project exposes the much evolved and strong vocal talents of Tessanne Chin, (with hit songs such as: Hide away, Black books, and Messenger). ‘Never let me go’ speaks to the highly romantic and mental attraction that lovers often experience, coupled with the seeming and ever present physical attraction existing between  a male and female.
The song speaks to a need by both sexes, to provide reassurance or lifelong commitment, to life and love, with the prospect of everlasting partnership.  The collaboration comes high on the heels of the request by the Jamaican population, as well as the cry of the nations entertainment bodies, to ensure the music we produce, is one which our children can listen and ascertain good values and morals. Never let me go encourages the continued commitment, with truth, love and willingness to work towards the goal of a lasting relationship.
Never let me go is a production by the much acclaimed, local and international producer Birch, based in Kingston, Jamaica.

Bolt and Richards win at IAAF world athlete of the year in Monaco


Photograph: Stephane Danna/AFP
The Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt and United States 400 metres runner Sanya Richards have won their second IAAF World Athlete of the Year awards.

Bolt retained the honour for winning the 100m and 200m finals in world record times at the World Championships in Berlin, matching his sprint double at the Beijing Olympics.

“It’s been an amazing year for me,” said Bolt, whose training was hampered by a foot injury after he crashed his car in April. “I had to refocus my goals and put in a lot of hard work. I did extremely well and I’m proud of myself.”

Richards, the 2006 winner, won her first individual gold medal at a major championships in Berlin. She also won at all six Golden League meetings in Europe to claim a share of the $1m jackpot (£605,000) offered to athletes who swept their event.

“I am so excited and overwhelmed,” said the Jamaican-born Richards. “You work so hard to be a world champion. It’s right up there with winning the title in Berlin.”

Lamine Diack, the president of the International Association of Athletic Federations, praised Bolt for raising his performances to “an unimaginable level”. “We need stars in the sport,” he said. “He brings a lot of prestige to our sport and is one of the best-known people on the planet.”

The 23-year-old Bolt said he aimed to go unbeaten through the 2010 season, when he will compete at seven of the 14 meets which make up the new global Diamond League circuit.

He has signed a contract to race against Tyson Gay, of the US, and his fellow Jamaican Asafa Powell. “A lot of people are going to watch out for the showdowns,” Bolt said.

Gay said he wanted a 100m rematch with Bolt at the New York City meeting on June 12. “That would make track and field huge again in the United States,” Gay said at a Diamond League launch.

Richards credited Bolt and other Jamaican sprinters for inspiring her in Beijing with their obvious love of the sport.

“These athletes were just having so much fun,” Richards said. “I was so focused on winning, the medals and the money and everything that came with being a champion that I forgot the simple enjoyment and fun of track and field.”

Richards said she watched videos with her parents of her running as a child aged seven and began to relax during races. “I just felt like I was running a lot lighter, the races became a lot easier,” she said.

Richards said her goal for 2010 is to break the US record of 48.70 she set in Athens three years ago.

Her next main event is marriage to the New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross in Austin, Texas, on her 25th birthday in February.

Bolt topped a shortlist that included his sprint rival Gay and three other world champions: the 5,000m and 10,000m winner Kenenisa Bekele, of Ethiopia, the pole vaulter Steven Hooker, of Australia, and the Norwegian javelin thrower Andreas Thorkildsen.

Richards beat her fellow world champions Valerie Vili, the shot putter from New Zealand, the Croatian high jumper Blanka Vlasic, Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk, who set a world record winning the hammer, and the Russian pole vault world record holder, Yelena Isinbayeva.

Votes were cast by nearly 1,800 athletes, officials and journalists.

ARMED & DANGEROUS – Kymani Marley – LIVE!

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Although he is the son of music royalty, Ky-Mani Marley says life has not always been a bed of roses. The 33-year-old singer/actor tells his story in Dear Dad, his autobiography to be released February 6.

Marley is best known for minor hit songs like Dear Dad and Warriors and roles in movies such as One Love, as well as starring in a hit reality show on Black Entertainment Television (BET). But he says his childhood was difficult, even though his father was reggae superstar Bob Marley.

“I’ve lived a life many cannot imagine. Many people don’t even know half the things I’ve been through,”

In Dear Dad, he revisits those years of strife. He said he lived with his mother Anita Belnavis in a two-bedroom board house in her hometown of Falmouth, Trelawny, where he was born.

Belnavis was a leading table tennis player in the Caribbean in the 1970s, and one of several women with whom Bob Marley had children outside of marriage.

Gully calls for peace, Mavado invites Kartel to birthday bash

ij8-mavadoDeejay David ‘Mavado’ Brooks is calling for the end of the Gully/Gaza war by inviting musical rival Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer to make peace at his birthday bash on Saturday, December 5.

Mavado’s manager, Julian Jones-Griffith, yesterday said he wanted to publicly invite Kartel to make peace once and for all. “Basically we want to invite him to the show at Temple Hall Estate as a show of unity for the nation,” Jones-Griffith said.

Jones-Griffith and Mavado have been in discussions with Bishop Herro Blair and other prominent figures to come up with a solution for the Gully/Gaza issue, which people have insisted is dividing Jamaica. Vybz Kartel is supposed to be appearing on Bolt’s SuperParty in St Ann on the same night as Mavado’s bash.

Jones-Griffith said: “We just want to put it out there, Mavado has been coming under pressure for this Gully/Gaza thing and I’m sure he wants a better Jamaica. I’m sure Vybz Kartel, as a Jamaican, wants the same thing. For the sake of the Jamaican youths we’re inviting him to come on stage to show the people it’s all about the music and dat we can live good. We want him to come and participate, its something that needs to be done and we need a big stage to do it.”

According to Jones-Griffith, Kartel or his representatives can contact them before the show, through the media or simply come to the show on the night. He says Mavado is 100 per cent behind the initiative. Efforts to speak to Kartel were futile up to press time.

This will not be the first time that the two have tried to make peace. In March 2007, the deejays met with DCP Mark Shields to call for an end to the feud, however, weeks later the two were at it again. Jones-Griffith says that will not be happening again: “We’ve been down dis road before and we don’t feel good it ended up going back to the feuding. This is not a publicity stunt, we want to explore how we can do this – reach out to di youths in schools and make it permanent. The war is in no way beneficial to anybody’s career and it’s bringing a lot of negative energy to the country.”

The two have been feuding since 2006 and last year faced off at Sting. Since then they have come under increasing pressure garnering nationwide attention due to the negative effects of the feud.

Beenie Man Axed from New Zealand’s Big Day Out Festival

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Beenie Man is “heartbroken” at his axing from the Big Day Out after concerns were raised over homophobic lyrics in some of the Jamaican reggae artist’s songs.

The controversial artist was axed just a week after being named to play at the Big Day Out in Auckland on January 15 after an outcry from gay rights groups.

Organisers 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”.

But in an email sent to GayNZ.com and other media, titled I Do Not Condone Act Of Violence Toward Others, Beenie Man – real name Moses Davis – said his lyrics were misunderstood because of cultural differences.

“People sometimes may misunderstand my lyrics because of slang, metaphors, jargons and dialect; it is not intended to be harmful,” he said.

“We live in a diverse society, the haves, have-nots, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Atheists, light and dark skinned, homosexuals and heterosexuals. At times we wrongly ridicule each other for beliefs. One thing we have in common, we are all human beings and should strive for peace, equality and love.

“I want my music to bring people together and for them to dance, feel good and enjoy it.”

He said his controversial songs – which include the lyrics, “I’m dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays” – were directed at men who exploited young boys, not homosexuals.

“I wrote the lyrics at a point in my life when I younger and was seeing a lot of exploitation of poor and defenseless young boys in the garrison – where I too was born – by rich men,” he said in the email.

“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 realize that those men were not gays but were predators or paedophile which is not a common word in my dialect hence the perception when generalising. I am older and realised the difference after.

“I have worked with gays and lesbians on videos and photo shoots and they have done great. I do not sing or perform any of those songs nor promote any violence on stage. I have been performing all over the world and there hasn’t been any issues of recent.”

He said he was disappointed to no longer be performing in Australia or New Zealand and asked Big Day Out organisers to apologise to him.

“I realize that I have never been to your country and what was old forgotten news in which I have apologised, is now new news because of me coming and now it’s your turn for an apology. I am a music ambassador for the world and the last thing I would want to do is spread hate or violence towards others.

“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.”
