Being an enthusiastic fan of dancehall from an early age and identifying dancehall artists Spragga Benz and Cham as his musical inspiration, upcoming dancehall artist Briggy Benz is determined to be an icon in the dancehall industry. Dubbed as the off spring of veteran dancehall dj Spragga Benz, Briggy is resolute on revamping the vibe of dancehall music marketing himself as a hardcore dancehall artist with talent and versatility. Briggy was first introduced to the dancehall scene in 1999 when mentor-Spragga

Benz collaborated with him and fellow Red Square companions to voice “Gi Wi Dem” on Ward 21’s rhythm. Though the song received fair amount of airplay on radio stations locally, Briggy did not gain the recognition he hoped for. While embarking on his musical journey, earlier in his musical career

Briggy succeeded in voicing for several top dancehall producers such as Don Corleon and Rennaissance.

Taking a break from the center of dancehall happenings, Briggy spent the last few years evaluating the current dancehall industry. Briggy’s evaluation of the dancehall industry helped him to identify weak areas of his musical career and also pointed to areas that he could capitalize on. Briggy’s observation lead him to conclude that the talent of many young dancehall artists continues to go unrecognized resulting in the same musical sounds and ideas on contemporary dancehall rhythms. Mr. Benz also observed that dancehall is yearning for new talents with emerging ideas and lyrics. Still determined to gain success in the dancehall industry, Briggy understands that in order for him to overcome the obstacle of favoritism and bias he has to strategically position himself as a cutting edge dancehall artist- an artist that has a unique musical style and image. Even though Briggy is centering his musical approach on uniqueness and talent, he has never re-defined the concept of hardcore ultimately resulting in him recording hardcore dancehall songs that are appealing to an international audience.

In pursuit of his love and passion for music, Briggy has returned to the dancehall industry with what can be considered a bang. Never drifting from his musical roots, Briggy continues to be a member of the Red Square Crew while in the same breadth setting himself as a solo act. Briggy’s most recent projects involve him voicing on two of dancehall top rhythms namely Belated Earth Strong and Audacity produced by Delly Ranx and Riff Raff respectively. Briggy’s two latest songs “My Life” and “Never Lame” are doing well on the local and international scene. With the rotation of both songs on various radio stations, the artist is confident that there is still a space for young dancehall talents with the fans despite the reluctance of radio disc jocks and sound system selectors to promote the talent of young artists. Making strides to achieve his musical objective, for the Christmas season Briggy urges dancehall supporters to look out for the “Bun It” rhythm which will feature more hot songs from him and his fellow Red Square Crew colleagues. Also, Briggy is confident that for 2012 and beyond him and fellow Red Square crew members will bring back the substance, talent and versatility to dancehall music.

Kartel returns fire at Shabba?

Popular deejay Vybz Kartel seems to be returning lyrical fire at Shabba Ranks after many speculated that the veteran’s latest None of Dem song was taking lyrical aim at the Portmore Empire leader.

In None A Dem, Shabba takes aim at persons in the dancehall who have not respected the veterans who have inspired and motivated them. He explains that he has been in the business for 30 years and is still here. In the song he deejays, “How can you not rate who come before yuh/yuh a gwaan like a yuh come bout yah, come mek music big.”

He also deejays, “None of dem nuh bad like Shabba Ranking/none of dem nuh tough like di Ranking/stop dat one deh and ask him/ if him nuh imitate di great Shabba Ranking/unnu can stop dat fool deh and ask him/if him nuh imitate di great Shabba Ranking/cause dem a brag and boast/and is a shame/an dem nuh add up to wha dem proclaim/wid dem likkle house, dem likkle car, dem likkle, chain dem likkle name.”

Now, Vybz Kartel in his recently released Nuh More Dan Mi, he deejays in the song’s intro, Hey bwoy doan pass yuh place/ nuh even look/ yuhcome a huff an puff like yuh evilous/ a bruk yuh bruk but in God mi trust/ mi nuh frighten fi people.

Lines such as: Yuh bright an yuh feisty mi set di trend/ mi nuh follow fashy monkey mi set di trend and Mi buss 2000, eleven year pass/ mhm bwoy get a hype how long dem ago last also seem to be in response to Shabba’s stop dat one deh and ask him/ if him nuh imitate di great Shabba Ranking/ unnu can stop dat fool deh and ask him/ if him nuh imitate di great Shabba Ranking lyrics in None of Dem.

Kartel even goes further to deejay, Mr Badmind yuh nuh like how di gal dem a seh Addi a my time now/ yuh fi guh siddung yuh step up inna age now/ a gaza a gaza a run di stage now/ dis anuh 90s everything change round/ weh yu a guh wid yuh analog brains now/ me a di encyclopaedia an yuh caan touch a page yow/ move wid yuh chalk an yuh slate now.

Vybz Kartel recently raised eyebrows when he said that he would no longer be recording counteractions, war, gun, and ‘badman’ lyrics in his songs.

Efforts to reach Vybz Kartel for further comment on the issue were unsuccessful.

Ziggy Marley will be releasing a graphic novel - "Marijuanaman"

Ziggy Marley will be releasing a graphic novel – “Marijuanaman”

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.


Based on a character conceived of by Ziggy Marley, written by Man of Action Studios  and illustrated by Jim Mahfood, Marijuanaman promises to shatter all expectations — this is not the comic you think it is! The oversized deluxe hardcover graphic novel tells the tale of a noble extraterrestrial champion, who has arrived on Earth to deliver an important message and at the same time save his own planet.

“Marijuanaman represents the hope of the future… the hope that we will utilize all of the power that the universe has given us to save our planet,” Marley explained.

“Ziggy’s given us a great concept to go nuts with,” stated Casey. “This book goes beyond just being a comic…this book is an experience.” He’s a founding partner of Man of Action Studios, which will produce the upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man animated series premiering in 2012 on US cable channel Disney XD.

Mahfood adds, “Ziggy Marley is a visionary. Marijuanaman is not going to be what people except it to be.” He has worked on Clerks (with filmmaker Kevin Smith) and on Spider-Man books for Marvel, among other comics.

Marley’s newest and fifth solo album, Wild and Free, will release along with Marijuanaman this spring.

Jamaican reggae/dancehall artist Sean Paul will not be performing at Rotorua's Raggamuffin festival this weekend.

With less than a week before Raggamuffin 2011 opens at the Rotorua International Stadium, concert promoters have announced that Paul will no longer be part of the line-up.

Reggae star pulls out of Raggamuffin festival

Jamaican reggae/dancehall artist Sean Paul will not be performing at Rotorua’s Raggamuffin festival this weekend.

With less than a week before Raggamuffin 2011 opens at the Rotorua International Stadium, concert promoters have announced that Paul will no longer be part of the line-up.

Paul will not be replaced, but the remaining major acts will play extended sets.

The line-up now features international artists Mary J Blige, Jimmy Cliff, Maxi Priest, The Original Wailers and Ky-Mani Marley. Kiwi musicians include Che Fu and the Krates, Nesian Mystik, Sons of Zion and 1814. Che Fu and the Krates replaced Salmonella Dub who were part of the original line-up.

Paul was one of the international artists in the line-up for Raggamuffin 2011.

However, he didn’t perform at the Australian Raggamuffin festivals in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne last week but promoters told The Daily Post on Thursday he would still be performing in Rotorua. They have since announced he wouldn’t be part of the festival.

Promoter Andrew McManus said it was with great regret that he announced Paul would not be performing in Rotorua.

“We are as much disappointed as I know his fans will be,” Mr McManus said.

It has been reported that Paul tweeted on his Twitter page after missing the Australian concerts “This msg is 4 all my Australia peeps!!! I’m extremely upset that I couldn’t make it 2 raggamuffin.I am sorry”.

“4 reasons beyond my control I couldn’t make it. Truss mi if thing were diff. AUSI AUSI AUSI RRR”.

Mr McManus said even though Paul wouldn’t be part of Raggamuffin 2011, the line-up would still be impressive.

“However, we know that Raggamuffin fans will not be disappointed in the event. It remains a huge line-up.”

The 10-hour music festival is expected to attract a crowd of 30,000 people and promoters are expecting it to be the best Raggamuffin to date.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
