Mr. Vegas Latty J

Mr. Vegas and Latty J show ‘Who Rule’ in new single

Mr. Vegas Latty JHigh-riding dancehall star, Mr. Vegas has released a collab with Latty J, one of the hottest new recruits on the Dancehall scene, dubbed, Who Rule.

The track and video, which was released this week is another from Mr. Vegas’ MV Music outfit featuring one of the artistes in his stable.

The August Town native has been bubbling up with several hot singles over the past few months. She recently bussed big shots on the Mint Tea Riddim with Shape & Figure and Irie Vibes on the Protector Riddim. She was also presented and accounted for on Jah Snow Cone’s Nuh Fraid Riddim with a track titled, Put Up Unuh Han and before, claimed God A God on another collab with Mr. Vegas. On all tracks Latty J demonstrated dexterity and skill in handling the riddim; peppering it with catchy lyrics in her own gritty feminine style.

Happy with the latest release, Latty J says she is rising to the next level, Who Rule is kind of a coming of age for me. I have been in the business learning and showing the people my talent and this track is just a culmination of part of my musical journey.”

Mr. Vegas, for his part, is happy he and Latty J could have the chemistry for such a conceptually difficult song to pull off,

“When Pappa San and Lady G did the same concept it was a smash because they had the chemistry and now in 2014 Latty J and myself have come up with a similar feel but with different metaphors and similes. We work well together and she is one of the new artistes who will inherit the future of Dancehall.”

Who Rule features Mr. Vegas and Latty J in competition as to who wears the pants in the house. It is a humorous take on male to female relationships and brings added fun to the dancehall landscape, which is sometimes void of humour and the harmless banter of forgone years.

I-Octane Reggae Sumfest

I-Octane set to close Reggae Sumfest for second consecutive year

I-Octane Reggae SumfestAfter a war of words and nominations being put in as to who should close Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest, organizers of the show have taken the safe bet, opting for I-Octane to close the show for the second straight year.

Summerfest Productions CEO, Johnny Gourzong announced that I-Octane would finish Dancehall Night set to take place on July 17, saying at Reggae Sumfest’s official launch in Kingston this past weekend, “I-Octane is closing Dancehall Night! No ifs, buts or maybes!”

I-Octane has since accepted the news, saying he will bring his best to the show in an effort to better his closing set from last year.

This news comes after weeks of back and forth between himself and fellow singjay, Mr. Vegas after Octane challenged Vegas to close the show following disparaging comments Vegas made about him closing the show as well as his campaign to get said closing spot. Vegas responded by saying Octane should close to go given he thinks of himself as the new king of Dancehall, saying he would consider closing the show himself if asked.

Veteran deejay, Kiprich, who has previously closed STING, also threw his hat in the ring to close the show, as long as the pay was good enough.

Reggae Sumfest will take place from July 13-19 in Montego Bay.

I-Octane, currently on an extended U.S. tour, initially acceptedSummerfest Productions head, Johnny Gourzong’s invitation for the entertainer to close Dancehall Night for the second year running. However, he changed his mind after being told Mr. Vegas was also on the bill and has challenged him to close the show instead.

Mr. Vegas responded to I-Octane’s comments following a show in Colombia, saying Octane should again finish Dancehall Night given he considers himself the ‘King of Dancehall. However, Vegas warned Octane that he should think more long term with his career goals.

Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest 2014 will take place on July 17. Reggae Sumfest 2014 is scheduled for July 13-19 at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex in Montego Bay.

Child custody case involving Mr. Vegas postponed

vegasheadshotThe child custody trial involving Dancehall/Reggae megastar, Mr. Vegas has been postponed.

Originally scheduled to commence on Monday, the trial was set to begin the process of determining whether Vegas, or his ex-girlfriend, Shellian McBayne would win full custody of their two-year-old daughter. However, the case has now been postponed until April 23 after McBayne reportedly failed to show up for the hearing, which took place at the Bronx County Family Court in New York.

Vegas has been campaigning in recent months that he should receive full custody of their young daughter after she allegedly witnessed her mother, McBayne, being intimate with another man inside the prominent singjay’s Florida home. He later claimed in subsequent interviews that McBayne secretly wed in the United States, meaning their child had been born in wedlock and that he had no legal rights to the baby.

Vegas has since sold the aformentioned home and is auctioning off furniture from the residence as part of his Turning Dust Into Bricks charity.

Later this month, Vegas is expected to release his first book, Bare Tingz, a cheating novel based on this alleged incident.

Mr. Vegas to sell furniture from home of cheating scandal

mr.vegas_Add another way for Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Mr. Vegas to capitalize on the recent cheating saga involving his baby’s mother and alleged lover as the prominent singjay will auction furniture from the infamous, ‘house of infidelity.’

Vegas has found a myriad of ways to deal with the image of discovering his baby’s mother, Shellian McBayne sleeping with another man in his Florida home this past October. Vegas, who went on a social media rant to expose his ex-girlfriend’s actions, has released various visuals (video, photos) of the incident and even made a music video, Bare Tingz, in which he mocked the controversial occurrence.

In a press release, Vegas explained his reasoning towards dishing out furniture from his home.

‘’I cannot bear to see them and after throwing away the bed, I thought about the pain versus the waste. In thinking, I realized I was being selfish and there were many ways that people could benefit from this.” Vegas said. “One being the children from the Mustard Seed Community, which is a charity I support. Also, in doing this I would hope to teach men who have been in my position, that all is not lost, a little laughter will help. Try turning your bad situation or circumstance into a good one, this world is about healing.”

Items included in the first Turning Dust Into Bricks auction include the bedroom set where the act of infidelity took place, as well as two matching night stands and a six-drawer dresser, including a decorative mirror and a chest of drawers. A second auction will subsequently take place, including a three piece taupe micro-fiber and leather living room set as well as a sofa, love seat and a recliner chair.

Bidding for items in both auctions starts at US$9.99.

Meanwhile, Mr. Vegas is working on a novel about cheating, called Bare Tingz and also has a website bearing the same name.

On the musical side of things, Vegas will soon release the official video for Party Tun Up, the second single off his highly acclaimed Sweet Jamaica double disc.
