Lisa Hype Is No Longer A Part Of The Portmore Empire

lisa and karrtel

Lisa Hype is no longer a part of the Portmore Empire. The members of the Empire have unanimously agreed to end our professional relationship especially in light of certain ‘developments’ that have come to our attention regarding her overall conduct, conduct that is not consistent with the decorum expected of a member of the Portmore Empire. She is an incredible artiste and we wish for her all the best in her future endeavours, but Lisa Hype will not play a future role in the Empire as she no longer fits in with our organisational goals as we move forward in 2010.

Flippa Mafia was involved in a car accident this morning on Hagley Park Road in Kingston, Jamaica.

Flippa Mafia Car Accident

flippa car crash

Flippa Mafia was involved in a car accident this morning on Hagley Park Road in Kingston, Jamaica.

According to eyewitness reports the deejay was driving on Hagley Park road on his way back from Sherlock Boat Ride when he got into difficulties and the Porsche Cayenne truck slammed into another truck and car before hitting a wall.

The complete front-end of the car sustained some major damage and could be considered a total write-off but miraculously Flippa walked away with only a few minor injuries.

The car was seen being towed away while Flippa was rushed away to the hospital at an undisclosed location. It’s not clear if the deejay was speeding or the accident was caused by a mechanical malfunction.

Flippa was recently involved in an accident in Philly but walked away without injuries. He also has an event scheduled for tonight in Jamaica

LA LEWIS-I DIDN’T CHICKEN OUT

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Deejay LA Lewis, who in the weeks leading up to Sting, promised dancehall fans a lyrical battle between himself and Mr G, was nowhere to be found on Saturday night and is now being branded a chicken by Mr G.

The two, had dancehall fans amped for a comedic face-off after both agreed to duke it out at Sting in exchange for criminal charges filed against Mr G by LA Lewis to be dropped.

Lewis, who was seemingly very confident in a victory, went as far as to order a coffin in which he would ‘bury’ Mr G. On Saturday night. However, Mr G stood alone backstage.

The deejay said that Lewis chickened out of the clash because he had received a humiliating lyrical beating at Ragashanti’s show, Mix up and Blenda, the previous night. He said, “Mi did kill him a Ragashanti show di night before. Mi a dj a di show, and him see mi a mash up di place, cah mi a gi di people dem some lyrics and a prepare dem fi di ting and him run on pan di stage and start dj. Di people dem clap him, dem boo him, dem put chair pan dem head and him still neva waan come offa di stage.”

Mr G continued, “Di people dem gi him bout five-minute worth a consecutive boo. Is like di bwoy see how serious it be pan him and nuh turn up. A di dead wha him dead di night before, him couldn’t tek dat in front of a Sting crowd.”

The deejay said he was disappointed at Lewis’ no-show, as he was looking forward to the face-off. He said, “I want to find out what he represents whether it is CB chicken or Best Dressed chicken, cause it is obvious that he is a chicken.”

He said, “Dis bredda is in hiding and him a go find bout two million excuse fi why him neva come. But a di killing wha him get a Raga show prime up him heavens and bring him back to a ting called reality.”

next showdown

The deejay said he is willing to meet with Lewis again, if only to satisfy the appetite of dancehall fans. He said, “I think there has to be a next showdown. Di people dem waan see dis, and because it neva materialise, it left a bad taste in their mouths.”

Lewis, however, had a different story. He said that he did not chicken out of the clash, but rather felt disrespected by the event’s promoters and chose not to attend. He said as the main act of the show, he was not treated how he should have been. “The demands I made were not met,” he said, “They were supposed to deal with some

funding for my tour bus and at the end of the day, they didn’t deal with it. They were to send part of the money for costumes for my entourage , they didn’t send that.” He said he also did not receive tickets for his entourage and said he attempted to contact the show’s promoters, but had no luck. “Everybody lock off them phone,” he said.

He said he felt disrespected as he “did not receive a copy of the running order” like all major acts should. He said, “LA Lewis may take things light, but not the Seven Star General. I respect Mr Laing, but promoters need to treat artistes right. You’re not going to treat me bad and then I run on your show like I’m ‘Gladys Knight and the Pips’.”

As for the claims that he was ‘killed’ the previous night, he dismissed those saying he did not plan to clash and he didn’t. He admitted to having difficulties however. He said, “It was like I was deejaying off-key, cause I was signalling to the band to mix me, but I didn’t know it was a blind band.”

Isaiah Laing, promoter of the event, said that Lewis’ claims were false. He said the deejay received all he asked for and said Supreme Promotions even went beyond what it would normally have done for him. “Whatever he asked for, I gave it to him. I did all that I was suppose to do for him. I think we even went overboard, cause normally we wouldn’t give him anything. I wouldn’t have built up people’s hopes and not delivered. I didn’t even know he wasn’t coming until about 11 p.m.,” he said.

The balance of power in the Federal criminal justice system is weighted heavily towards the prosecutor.  Federal criminal law enforcement has as its aim the reduction of crime and the achievement of fair and consistent sentencing.

Buju Banton and the Sentencing Guidelines

dhusabuju

The balance of power in the Federal criminal justice system is weighted heavily towards the prosecutor.  Federal criminal law enforcement has as its aim the reduction of crime and the achievement of fair and consistent sentencing.

The Federal Sentencing Guidelines determines federal sentences based primarily on two factors: (1) The conduct associated with the criminal offence, which produces the Offence Level, (2) The defendant’s criminal history.  A sentencing table displays the weighted relationship between the two factors.

The Offence Level and the Criminal History Category are placed on a grid or table that specifies a sentencing range in months.  The court may sentence a defendant within the Sentencing Range.

When the Federal Sentencing Guidelines were passed they were mandatory, however there is now some flexibility in the law since the Supreme Court ruling in the United States v Booker 543 US 220 (2005).  Booker held that the guidelines, when rigidly applied, violated the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The guidelines are now considered advisory only.  Judges must calculate the guidelines and consider them when determining a sentence, but are not required to issue sentences within the guidelines.

Two basic types of plea negotiation exist: (1) charge bargaining and (2) sentencing bargaining. Charge bargaining is negotiating about the specific charges to which a defendant will plead guilty.  Charge bargaining has little impact on the ultimate sentence received because in calculating the advisory guideline level all of the relevant conduct is considered regardless of which specific count of the indictment pleads guilty to. The second type of plea-bargaining, the more effective type involves sentencing agreements where the defendant seeks concessions from the Government regarding its sentencing positions.

A sentencing agreement may provide that (a) the United States Government recommend a particular sentence, see Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11 (C) (1), (b) or that the United States Government will not oppose the defendants requested sentence see Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 11 (C) (1) (B). Well-informed estimates of the Sentencing Range for Buju Banton are in the 25 years to life range.  This would apply if he were found guilty at trial or if he does not seek a sentence reduction through a plea agreement.  Such a sentence reduction would require a significant factual debriefing concerning his involvement in illegal conduct and the names of all his current and past co-conspirators if any such exist. If Mr. Myrie goes to trial and is acquitted it will be a great victory for him.  In Federal cases in which electronic evidence is involved the chances of obtaining an acquittal at trial are statistically very small.

DECLARING THAT Jamaica's music has died, producer Mikey Barnett says the Government needs to restrict freedom of expression if the society is to survive.

SHUT ‘EM UP! – ‘Too much freedom in the name of creative expression’

freespeech

DECLARING THAT Jamaica’s music has died, producer Mikey Barnett says the Government needs to restrict freedom of expression if the society is to survive.

“The Government has failed in its role to protect the society from itself – meaning artistes of today. There is too much freedom in the name of creative expression,” Barnett told a recent Gleaner Editors’ Forum.

Barnett argued that the Govern-ment had allowed a small societal sore to turn into gangrene before trying to fix it.

He said the decline in Jamaica’s music is going to be impossible to address because the State allows everyone to freely express what he or she wants through areas such as music.

However, the director of public prosecutions has said freedom of expression is not the problem.

Paula Llewellyn told The Sunday Gleaner that it is inertia and lethargy on the part of many citizens which is the root cause of the problem.

“Everybody is guaranteed – under our Constitution and by virtue of being a human being in a civilised society where principles of democracy hold – freedom of expression,” Llewellyn said.

“Too many of us are afraid to rock the boat, in that we do not wish to be singled out as pointing out that the content of a song like Informer Fi Dead can undermine the moral fibre of the society and help to inculcate fear in respect of doing your duty if you have witnessed wrongdoing or a breach of criminal law,” Llewellyn told The Sunday Gleaner.

Last week, Barnett told a Gleaner Editors’ Forum that he did not support dancehall music because of what it stood for. He charged that the music bred violence and spewed profanity throughout the society and should be controlled through legislation.

“It is a lack of political will that has caused this, because whenever they (legislators) attempt to put in law, people say you are stifling their creative expression, and so they back off,” Barnett said.

In defence of his stance, the music producer said persons should not “defend creative expression at the risk of destroying the society”.

“We have to make up our minds whether we want freedom of expression for everybody, or a controlled situation to protect our children,” Barnett said.

However, Llewellyn argued that people should be more cognisant of lyrics and be willing to speak up against transgressions. She said Jamaicans should respect each other’s right to freedom of expression but “be prepared to indicate that the particular lyrical content of a song is not appreciated”.

Llewellyn’s position has the backing of Senator Warren Newby, parliamentary secretary in the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports .

No role to play

He argued that the State should not infringe on a person’s freedom.

“If an adult decides that slackness is his or her form of entertainment, I don’t think the State should get involved to say ‘You can’t listen to that’. If he pays to go into a venue that is sanitised from the general public and wants to listen to slackness in that venue, then the Government has no role to play in that matter,” Newby said.

He added: “What needs to be emphasised in today’s Jamaica is the role of parenting. People must take personal and social responsibility.

“We must empower communities and the parents to take greater care of the socialisation of the children so in the event that they hear music that is not wholesome, they know not to gravitate towards it,” Newby said.
