Post Sting concert I am still filtering through all the content I have gotten from it. I just saw that I had a video on Sizzla’s perfromance, one of the all time greats so I had to post it…
While the concert took place about 2 years ago this footage was recently cut down of Damian Marley performing in Brazil back in 2011. For all you Jr Gong fans enjoy.
When Busy took the stage at Jamworld, he came fully equipped with new songs—and none more crucial than
“Mystery History,” the most detailed musical account yet of Busy’s arrest, case, and legal struggles. Opening with the sound of a jet plane, the tune breaks the whole story down before giving thanks and praise to the Almighty for securing Busy’s release from prison after just six months. Audio After The Jump…“Informer call me name, Jah know the bwoy dem sail me out.” Run the track…
VP Records has outdone itself with Barrington Levy: Reggae Anthology: Sweet Reggae Music. This 2 CD set is stock full of those heavy riddims that we cut our teeth on as reggae fans. Familiar tunes like “Shaolin Temple,” “Mary Long Tongue,” “Poor Man Style,” and “Black Roses” showcase Levy’s unmistakeable wail and his uncanny ability to paint a vivid picture of life in the ghetto. “No weak tunes shall prosper” in this set. You will not find a weak track to speak of here. Just 40 straight skullbangers that will test the physical limits of your headset.
For those of you in the NYC area looking for something to do, check out Miss Lilys Art In the Dancehall Exhibit and the book release of “Clarks in Jamaica”.
Almost a year and a half ago, we told you about the Jamaican drama film Ghett’a Life. The film went on to become the most successful Jamaican release of 2011.
If you haven’t yet had a chance to see the film, you can now order the DVD which will release in February 2013. Check the info below….
… The film went on to win the Best International Film Award at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, and shared the Jury Award at the Aruba International Film Festival.
In fact, Browne was quite overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response to his film in his homeland. He says that: “the response in Jamaica was overwhelming. Friends would call me from the cinema and hold up their cell phone at the end of the film so I could hear the audience on their feet cheering and clapping.”
Now you too will soon have the chance to see what the cheering was all about, when Ghett’a Life comes out on DVD on Feb. 16, 2013 through Jinga Films Ltd. It’s available now on pre-order on Amazon…

Cham’s “Stripper Pose” video looks like it had to be one of the funnest video shoots ever. Beautiful girls on a beach with big bass cabinets blasting dancehall—what’s not to like? His song “Lawless” video might be on the same Dave Kelly–produced riddim, but the visuals depict totally different situation. It’s a rudeboy tune after all, a block-by-block survey of which neighborhood in Kingston is the maddest and why. We’re talking black bandanas, high-speed chases, outwitting Babylon at every turn. Fasten your seatbelt.
