Alkaline and Mavado Excites Promoter and Florida Dancehall Fans

Alkaline and Mavado are two of the leading artists in dancehall right now and although they are not a group, their friendship often lead them to perform on the same shows.

Just last month we saw them both in action in Toronto and in July they made an appearance together on Reggae Sumfest. On September 17, Alkaline and Mavado will again be on the same stage at the upcoming Elite Music Festival at the Central Broward Regional Park and Stadium in Florida. Veteran promoter, Hans Mullings, says the festival will give fans a professional music and entertainment experience and bring people together.

“It is planned to bring people together, and we are going for an annual product,” Mullings said. “We will be having a live band show because if the band is great and the artist is great, it will give patrons a unique feel. People always say stay in your lane, but we are not like that, we try to be in every lane. We have done our research, and, believe me, it is a win-win when you hear about Alkaline, Mavado, and Jahmiel on one stage. The response as been wonderful and people are very excited.”

The festival will also offer a meet-and-greet session which will cost each patron US$250 to meet and take photos with Mavado and Alkaline.

Tommy Lee Says Alkaline “Use My Good Good Eye On His Art”

Tommy Lee Sparta is reacting to Alkaline using his eye on the cover art of the single “Red Eyes.”

Back in March, Alkaline released his first ever Tommy Lee diss track titled “Red Eyes.” On the cover art of the single, the Vendetta deejay cleverly used a photo of the Spartan deejay’s eye. The whole thing was hilarious and now Tommy Lee’s response is even more hilarious. “True him take my good good eye and put in a him thing I just shoot up back him mask,” Tommy Lee said in a recent interview.

The Mobay deejay released a new single last week title “Target” and on the cover art he used a Vendetta mask covered in bullets and blood. Seems like this beef is turning into a war on who can come up with the best cover art, but so far Tommy Lee has already released more than half a dozen diss records. Alkaline has only released one track and has side step the beef for the most part except for a small jab during his performance at Reggae Sumfest last month.

Tommy Lee Sparta Calls For Peace As Murder Grips Mobay

Tommy Lee Sparta is calling for peace as the murder rate spikes in his hometown Montego Bay.

The Mobay deejay used a part of his performance at last weekend’s Reggae Sumfest to call for peace in the city as violence and murder reached an all-time high. Roughly 130 people have been murdered in Montego Bay since the start of 2017, prompting political leaders and law enforcement to bond together to come up with solutions.

“Big up everybody,” Tommy Lee said on stage. “One love. Big up every youth inna MoBay. Wi seh one MoBay. Have respect for each other. Ease off a di heap of killing and the bag of violence, yuh zimi, big woman thing. One MoBay, one Jamaica, one world, peace out.”

Tommy Lee Sparta performed a well received set at Reggae Sumfest 2017 despite being cut short due to time constraints. Watch video footage from his performance below.

Tory Lanez Dropping New Music With Vybz Kartel & Busta Rhymes

Tory Lanez didn’t just perform on Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica last weekend, he also recorded a song with Vybz Kartel and Busta Rhymes.

The Canadian singer performed a well received set on Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest on Friday and even called out Popcaan on stage. During his visit to reggae land, Lanez found the time to go into the studio to lay down some vocals for a song with incarcerated dancehall legend Vybz Kartel and rap legend Busta Rhymes. The singer shared his excitement on Twitter yesterday.

“I can’t believe I did a song with Busta Rhymes and Vybz Kartel…. Like WTF,” he wrote on his Twitter timeline. Tory Lanez didn’t give any additional details on the track like release date or title, he sounds pretty excited and we can understand why since not many artists get to collaborate with great artists like Vybz Kartel and Busta Rhymes.

I can't believe I did a song with Busta Rhymes and Vybz Kartel …. Like WTF … ???

Tommy Lee Sparta Drop Two New Alkaline Diss Tracks “Target” & “19 Duppy”

Alkaline diss Tommy Lee Sparta during his performance on Reggae Sumfest last weekend and now the Mobay deejay responded with two new diss tracks “Target” and “19 Duppy.”

It’s been months now since Tommy Lee been dropping diss records and Alkaline has so far only responded once with a track called “Red Eyes” where he used Tommy Lee Sparta’s photo on the artwork. In a leaked voice note, the “Uncle Demon” deejay spoke about the artwork ahead of his performance at Sumfest.

On the artwork for the single “Target,” Tommy Lee used the famous Vendetta mask but in this case, it looks like something out of a horror movie, riddled with bullets and splattered with blood. The single was produced by Damage Music, while the second track “19 Duppy” was produced by Bombshop Records.

Vybz Kartel Fans Want Deejay On Next Sumfest Lineup With Alkaline & Mavado

Following a successful staging of the 2017 Reggae Sumfest, Vybz Kartel fans are pleading for the deejay to be released so he can be on next year’s lineup.

Some fans on Twitter think that Vybz Kartel could have done a better job than Alkaline and Mavado who both received high marks for their sets on Dancehall Night on Friday. Both Alka and Vado delivered well-received sets at Sumfest this year with some fans calling Mavado performance the best on that night.

“Worl’Boss would have done a better job and Sumfest would have made a whole lot more money if he was on the lineup,” one fan said on Twitter, while another added, “Hope them free Kartel in time for next year lineup. Am in Canada and I would book my ticket same time to see the Gaza boss perform.”

The last time Vybz Kartel graced the Reggae Sumfest stage was in 2011, a few months before his arrest in Kingston. Although he has been incarcerated since then, he has remained a relevant dancehall artist thanks to a regular supply of new music coming from his camp.

Alkaline Diss Tommy Lee Sparta Returns To Sumfest With A Bang

Alkaline and Tommy Lee Sparta returns to Reggae Sumfest with a big bang. The two dancehall rivals put on a show for their fans in Montego Bay on Friday night.

The new owners of Reggae Sumfest, Downsound Entertainment, pulled off another hugely successful staging of one of the most popular reggae music festivals in the world after taking it over last year. Both Dancehall Night and International Reggae Night saw a massive turnout of fans and local artists were in fine form.

Alkaline made a grand entrance on stage approximately 6 AM Saturday and perhaps the high point of his performance was when he dissed Tommy Lee Sparta in his backyard at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex. “Hey bwoy Nyammy Lee,” Alkaline said on stage as the crowd went wild. The Vendetta boss kicked off his performance with “Formula” a song that French Montana remake for his new album Jungle Rules. Alkaline even performed his Tommy Lee diss record “Red Eyes.”

A few weeks before Sumfest, Tommy Lee Sparta made a statement warning Alkaline not to try anything in his home town Montego Bay. He even made reference to the “Champion Boy” deejay using his eyes on the cover art of his diss single “Red Eyes.” But Alka ignored the threats and did exactly what Tommy Lee Sparta told him not to.

Some of the highlights from the Gully Gad’s set was when he dissed Popcaan and also gave his longtime dancehall nemesis Vybz Kartel a shout-out.

Masicka Cancels Reggae Sumfest Performance

Masicka and his manager Corey Todd have pulled his performance on Friday night at Reggae Sumfest.

According to Todd, it’s just one thing after the other the made him decided to throw in the towel on the highly anticipated performance. He named the running with Aidonia and his crew at a rehearsal among the many reasons for his decision to not perform. Masicka was also previously scheduled to perform between 2 AM and 3 AM Saturday morning, but Todd says he was informed yesterday that the time was moved up to 12:30 AM.

“Masicka fans won’t be there at the time so it’s pointless to perform at this point,” he said. Corey Todd also accused organizers of being unprofessional in their handling of the deejay including using an old photo of Masicka on the shows promo flyers. “It was just one thing after another but we said we were going to perform for the fans so we paid that no attention,” Corey Todd added.

Are Mavado, Alkaline & Jahmiel Working On New Music

Mavado, Alkaline, and Jahmiel have formed an alliance in dancehall called MVP and now they are working on new music together.

The MVP clique, which stands for Mavado Vedetta Patriotz, recently hit the studio together fueling rumors that they are working on a new project. Sources are telling Dancehall HipHop that they recorded a song together that will arrive sometime this summer. “I know a lot of people have a lot of questions but all I can say is a new song is coming from MVP,” sources told us.

Our sources didn’t give us a release date or the producer behind the upcoming single, but Mavado, Alkaline, and Jahmiel have a large segment of the dancehall fan base. Some may even argue that Alkaline is currently the leading artist in dancehall after surpassing Vybz Kartel in popularity, but that is still up for debate. The three dancehall deejays have been beefing with Popcaan and Vybz Kartel and a few of their affiliate artists since last year. All three of them will also be performing at this week’s Reggae Sumfest.

Sean Kingston Answers Critics Buys Mansion & Benz In Jamaica

Sean Kingston has answered critics of his so-called money woes by buying a mansion and a AMG Mercedes-Benz SUV in Jamaica.

The reggae pop star will be performing at Reggae Sumfest this weekend, but before he took the stage, the singer dropped some major racks in his birth land. Sean Kingston revealed on his Instagram that he bought a house in the upscale Norbrook community in St. Andrew and then hit up the Mercedea-Benz dealership to cop a new Mercedes-Benz GLE43 AMG coupe.

“With hard work and prayers anything and everything is possible,” Kingston wrote. “New All white Benz to match my new all white mansion in Kingston. Don’t believe what u read. Believe what u see!! Bless up.” The “Beautiful Girl” singer has been in the news a lot lately with several reports of him being slapped with lawsuits for money he owed to jewelers and his cars being repossessed.

Sean Kingston says that he made the move because whenever he travels to Jamaica he has to rent a car and a house. “Every time I come to Jamaica, I always have to be renting a car or try to get buses for my entire team,” said. “In the US, I have like three, four cars, so I just feel like Jamaica is my country and one of the best places I have been to, so I want to set the thing. So I made up my mind that this year I will be getting a car and a house. With God’s willing, everything, has been falling into place; I got the car, and I have my house in Norbrook, so I am really excited, and I will be here a lot.”

With hard work and prayers anything and everything is possible.. New All white Benz to match my new all white mansion in Kingston ??. Don't believe what u read. Believe what u see!! Bless up.. #seankingston #reggaesumfest2017
