Aidonia ditches war music, claims spiritual rebirth

Aidonia 2014Dancehall star, Aidonia says he will no longer make records preaching war or violence after insisting he has become a more spiritual person due to his growing commitment to the Rastafari movement and aims to make many more conscious songs going forward.

Having previously proclaimed himself Lord Evil, the hardcore deejay, known for several hit songs containing gun and war-related lyrical content, says he has slowly undergone a spiritual rebirth since the birth of his son in January of last year and will be making more songs to positively influence young people and reflect upon the happenings within society.

“At this stage in my life, I am trying to teach the youths that we don’t need anybody else to venture down that warpath because there is nothing good at the end,” Aidonia said in a statement released Thursday. “Right now, we dealing with love and unity. It’s about making music to feed yourself, feed your family and your friends, uplift yourself and everybody. I have no time to war with anybody.”

In addition to his adjustments musically, he has been making small changes to his lifestyle, including cutting meat out of his diet and donning Rastafari clothing, including his getup at Reggae Sumfest 2014 when he sported a military uniform with Rastafarian symbols.

This past June, Aidonia has released the conscious effort, One Heart, produced by his Jag One Production (J.O.P) label and will be shooting videos for singles such as Coco Powda and Love Off Yuh Gyal in the near future. Additionally, he plans to drop a clothing line later this summer dubbed 1Voice, including apparel for men, women and children.

Tommy Lee and Bounty Killer

Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee and Mavado to headline STING 2012

Though the two have publicly denied that a possible lyrical clash could happen, Dancehall superstars, Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee could indeed butt heads at the genre’s biggest stage show as both have been confirmed for STING 2012.

Having engaged in a lyrical feud over the last month, Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee will headline the 29th edition of STING and could possibly set the stage for Alliance leader and Gaza artiste to settle their ongoing differences. Tommy Lee recently released his track, Goat Head, which lyrically lambasted Bounty Killer after comments the ‘War Lord’ made about him and his ‘Sparta’ persona. Last week, Bounty Killer retaliated with the track, Nyammy Lee which upped the ante in the battle.

After initially insisting that he would never clash Bounty Killer out of respect for the legendary entertainer, Tommy Lee has now hinted that if provoked, he will challenge the ‘Grung Gaad’ at STING 2012.

Ishawna hangs out with Shabba Ranks

Shabba Ranks to be honored at Reggae Sumfest

Just under 48 hours from now, Dancehall legend, Shabba Ranks will appear on a Jamaican stage show for the first time in 11 years and organizers of Reggae Sumfest look to ensure that his return will be memorable.

Shabba Ranks arrived at the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston on Monday, where he was ceremoniously greeted by family, friends several fans who’ve long-awaited his return to Jamaica. Additionally, the iconic deejay visited his native neighborhood of Olympic Gardens where he bonded with fans and has since toured Kingston, with pictures emerging in the last two of Shabba Ranks alongside vaunted Dancehall superstar, Aidonia as well as prominent Alliance diva, Ishawna.

Now, as Shabba prepares to perform on the first of two International nights at Reggae Sumfest on Friday night, the self-professed Emperor of Dancehall music will be recognized by organizers of the stage show for his long-standing contributions to Jamaican music when he takes the stage at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex in Montego Bay.

Shabba Ranks has etched his name within Dancehall folklore since emerging in the late 1980s and subsequently dominating the music scene in the early 1990s with classics like Bedroom Bully, Trailer Load and Ting a Ling. Shabba hails as one of six Jamaican artistes to earn at least two Best Reggae Album Grammy awards and the only local entertainer to boast successive victories at music’s most celebrated awards show, winning for As Raw As Ever in 1992 and X-tra Naked the following year.

Having spent most of the last decade in Miami, Shabba Ranks promises to delight fans who’ve been craving to see him for so long.

Tonight, music lovers will witness ample star power as Dancehall Night takes center stage. Artistes such as Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Lady Saw, Konshens, Tifa, Popcaan, I-Octane, Khago, Baby Tash and Montego Bay native, Tommy Lee will be some of the acts who will grace the Catherine Hall stage on Thursday night.

Tad’s Record releases new Dancehall compilation

Due to the overwhelming success of The Phantom Vol. 1, Tad’s Record is pleased to announce that The Phantom Vol. 2 will hit digital outlets and retail stores on Tuesday, April 17th. For the second installment of this new series that focuses on emerging and/or re-emerging talent, Tad’s Record has chosen fast-rising star Popcaan and reenergized lyrical masters Assassin and Aidonia. In addition, I-Octane is back by popular demand on the new Phantom with brand new singles.

Popcaan’s meteoric rise among Jamaica’s new crop of Dancehall deejays is underscored by the international success of his single “Only Man She Want,” which made its Billboard debut earlier this month at #89 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Singles chart. “Only Man She Want,” is one of the featured singles on The Phantom Vol. 2, as well as his summer anthems “Ravin,” and “Party Shot.”

When asked about being a featured artist on The Phantom Vol. 2, Popcaan replied “yeah man, it’s great. ‘Nuff respect Tad’s.”

Two well respected lyricists that have surfaced from the new millennium crop of Dancehall artists in the mid 2000s, both Assassin and Aidonia have refocused and recharged their energies over the past year, spewing out a series of stinging new tunes. Assassin’s biting “Talk How Me Feel” and Aidonia’s naughty “Caribbean Girl” are just a couple of the fresh singles included on The Phantom Vol. 2.

“Popcaan is one of Jamaica’s brightest new Dancehall artists. He’s doing better than predicted internationally, and  he’s definitely at the forefront of the latest generation of deejays right now,” says Tad’s Record owner and founder Tad Dawkins. “Assassin and Aidonia have really stepped up to the plate over the past year, and are doing incredibly well. I believe we’ve got great songs from great artists on The Phantom Vol. 2, material music fans will love and appreciate.”

I-Octane, one of the featured artists in The Phantom Vol. 1, returns on Vol. 2 by popular demand – largely due to his overwhelming popularity and extensive body of new material. The Phantom Vol. 2 includes I-Octane’s single “Cyaan Do We Nutten” and his brand new single “My Story.”

The Phantom Vol. 2, featuring Popcaan, I-Octane, Assassin and Aidonia will be available digitally and in stores on Tuesday, April 17th. For more information on The Phantom Vol. 2, contact Tad’s Records (Miami) at 305-654-6130 or [email protected] or Tads’ Records (Kingston) at 876-929-2563 or [email protected], or visit www.tadsrecord.com.

Navino leaves J.O.P, still respects Aidonia

Emerging Dancehall star, Navino has decided to part ways with long time mentor, Aidonia after announcing his departure from the Jag One Productions (J.O.P) camp.

Navino first made waves in 2010 with singles such as Gyal Mad Ova Mi and Money Inna Pocket. However, the young deejay scored his most successful hit last year when he released Chillin’ Time on the internationally acclaimed Overproof Riddim, earning him strong notice within the industry and seemingly made Navino next in line to reel in major mainstream success as a part of Aidonia’s J.O.P camp.

However, after being left off a tour headlined by Aidonia in January, Navino and manager, Patrick ‘Roach’ Samuels noticed a change in vibes within the camp and decided to leave J.O.P in order to build his solo career.

STING promoter claims Beenie Man will show, says Kartel wanted Aidonia clash

The head organizer of the popular Dancehall stage show, STING, has high hopes for his product this time around; bringing it back to basics.

Isaiah Laing, head of Supreme Promotions, gave an interview on CVMTV’s OnStage this past Saturday where he outlined the events that will take place at STING 2011, scheduled to take place on December 26. The 28th edition of STING features a “Rumours of War” theme where several Dancehall acts are scheduled to engage in lyrical clashes. This marks a stark contrast from STING 2010 when no clashes were set and internationally-acclaimed Dancehall artistes, Mavado and Vybz Kartel were notable absentees; triggering the lowest turnout in the show’s history.

Laing conceded that not having Kartel and Mavado at STING last year hurt his product while claiming that the show’s change from its clash nature caused it to lose some credibility. However, Laing intimated that several artistes approached him to engage in clashes as an effort to revive the show’s atmosphere.
