Kodak Black Gets Another Legal L As Judge Paves Way For Touring

Kodak Black has been given the green light by a judge to travel for work purposes as he gets into top gear to resume his career. The rapper who was recently released from jail is still under probation conditions that prohibit traveling.

However, the Pompano Beach rapper is only allowed to travel strictly for work purposes. According to the order granted by a federal judge, Kodak Black will need to inform his probation officer about where he plans to go, and he can only travel for work activities. He needs to submit a full itinerary to the probation officer, which includes the places he visits as well as where he plans to stay such as hotels etc.

His probation conditions also prohibit the use of substance as he resumes his life as an artist, which involves appearances at parties and live performances. However, it seems that the rapper has made a turnaround with his life after being pardoned by former President Donald Trump.

He has since undertaken a number of charitable works as he had promised prior to being pardoned. His latest gesture was visiting the families of the Parkland, Florida shooting and also providing a scholarship in the name of one of the victims, who was a beloved fan. The scholarship will assist any student interested in criminal justice reform.

His Attorney Bradford Cohen says the rapper intends to continue to do charitable work, TMZ reported. Cohen also says the rapper intends to focus on work- booking concerts and attending meetings with his record label.

‘Power’ Star Michael Rainey Jr. Gets Threats From Alkaline Fans Over Vybz Kartek Support

Michael Rainer Jr., aka Tariq St. Patrick, found himself in the middle of a dancehall feud.

Jamaican-born TV star Michael Rainey Jr. has reportedly received death threats from fans of Alkaline following his decision to compare Vybz Kartel to Alkaline. The young actor used his Instagram Story to put forth the contentious comparison. Vendetta fans were left feeling disgusted when Rainey shared a picture of Alkaline from his days at Ardenne High School.

“Kartel Was Running Road When This Pic Was Taken N This N***a Think Him And Kartel A Size,” came the supporting caption. He added a few laughing emojis to the already biting line.

Rainey Jr. is best known for his role as Tariq St Patrick on the 50 Cent produced hit franchise, Power. He has been quite vocal over the years about his support of the Vybz Kartel-led Gaza nation. He cites Vybz Kartel, Tommy Lee Sparta, and Popcaan as some of his favorite dancehall artists.

His recent comparison did not rest well with Alkaline’s fans, and quite a few of them took to social media to thrash the actor. The comment areas below his recent posts and direct message inbox were supposedly overrun with hate mail. He again took to social media to share a few of what he was receiving. He doubled down on his stance as he shared the threatening messages and comments via screenshots he had taken.

“Nah All Jokes Aside Tho Y’all Really Can’t Deny That Kartel Was Running Road When Alkaline Was In School. Kartel Been Making Music Forever. Literally Forever,” he wrote.

Things got even more interesting when Vybz Kartel got wind of the firestorm that was brewing online. He threw his support behind the actor and posted: “Those are fake threats don’t pay dem no mind….just a bunch of wanna be angry fans, dem gaza imitation dem GCity #power ful @michaelraineyjr.” Rainey reposted the comments on his official Instagram page.

Vybz Kartel and Rainey seem to have a fairly good online relationship as this is not the first time the incarcerated DJ has reached out to him. He wished him a happy birthday via his Instagram page last year. Rainey is also no stranger to Jamaica, and last year Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett even supported him being a perfect candidate as the country’s official youth ambassador.

Do you think international superstars and persons of influence should publicly show their support for their favorite entertainers?

Tekashi 6ix9ine Sued By Security Company For Unpaid Fees, His Opps Predicted It

Tekashi 6ix9ine is being sued by a security company that formerly provided personal protection to the controversial rapper.

A lawsuit filed on Mondays revealed details that the security company that duly protected 69 in 2018, prior to getting arrested, have not been paid services owed by the rapper. Tekashi is best known for rap and also for his recent court case in which he is accused of famously snitching on various other rappers in the industry, squealing on others as part of a plea deal for lesser time.

The Company Metropolitan Patrol says they are owed monies for 11 days of service in 2018. According to TMZ, the timeline by the company coincide with paparazzi photos taken of 6ix9ine in Los Angeles surrounded by bodyguards who are almost twice the size of the bite-sized rapper.

The contract, according to the security company, is for 24-hour armed security and has a roster of detailed activities they worked at a day rate of $85 per hour and a nightly rate of $127.50 per hour. Among the package of services offered at armored vehicles- fully equipped Yukon with ballistic panels and police-style vehicles that included sirens and other equipment prepared for pretty much any scenario which can arise due to the rapper’s continuous beef and contentious personality.

The total owed to the company is $75,165, which Tekashi 6ix9ine has refused to pay. The company is seeking the amount in damages as well as interest and legal fees, which rounds off to $88,000.

Meanwhile, Tekashi’s Attorney-at-law Lance Lazzaro says that the rapper has nothing to do with the security company. In fact that his booking agency at the time is the one responsible for the outstanding payments, and that Metropolitan’s beef is actually with MTA Bookings, not 69.

Since coming out of jail, the rapper has been mired in controversy, including his latest gimmick, which included an alleged attempt, according to Meek Mill, to bait him into a fight in order to cause Mill to be sent to jail. Meek has said Tekashi 6ix9ine is working for federal authorities and that he was trying to get him into a fight so that he could be arrested and sent to jail. Meek Mill is no longer under probation but having spent a good chunk of his adulthood under court supervision, he intends to remain off the radar and vows never to go back to jail. His last case last 12 years.

Post Malone – Alone Again

ft. Jaden Smith

All of this time you tried to heal me
I tried to find myself this time
All of these things, they are not easy
But I feel like it’s worth the climb.

I told you if you wanna go, that is fine
But I’ll be alone, be alone
I’m never really the same guy that I was
When I was at home, was at home
Ooh, in my mind I’m still unknown
Please, oh, please just call my phone
I told you if you wanna go, that is fine
But I’ll be alone, be alone

One bad girl is all it takes
To make your mind just go insane
And I don’t think I’ll play those games no more, no more

Looking back at the times that we had
Got me stuck in my place,
Tryina move on, but I cannot get the pace
Got the smoke, but that’s just something into my face
Covering all the pain, are you leaving the train?
I’m So caught up, right up in the middle of
I’m so, so lost, and I’m never really winning
I’ve just never won, that’s so alone
No no no no
So, I [??] stay alone, lone lone

(I told you if you wanna go, that is fine
I’m never really the same guy)
I told you if you wanna go, that is fine
But I’ll be alone, be alone
I’m never really the same guy that I was
When I was at home, was at home
Ooh, in my mind I’m still unknown
Please, oh, please just call my phone
I told you if you wanna go, that is fine
But I’ll be alone, be alone.

Andreea Banica X Dorian Popa – Dragoste incercata

[Andreea Banica feat. Dorian Popa versuri]

M-ai lasat in delir cu o gura atat de insetata
Imi simt inima-n piept cum se zbate,
E foarte mirata
Esti tot in venele mele, simt cum m-alergi printer ele
Gusta-ma toata de parca ar fi ultima data
Te rog, hai spune-mi tu
Te-ai gandit vreodata ce faci cand inima refuza sa mai bata?

Sunt bolnava de dor fara dragostea ta,
Dragostea ta, fara dragostea ta
Sunt bolnava de dor, vreau atingerea ta
Atingerea ta, vreau atingerea ta
Nu ma judeca, sunt nevinovata
Ca noi doi impartim o dragoste incercata

Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
De tine-s legata
Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
Dragoste incercata

[Dorian Popa:]
Regasesc in veninul tau dulce o alta nuanta
Ca un joc, du-te vino, tu iarasi ma tii la distanta
Absenta ta ma omoara, imi pune sare pe rana
Eu fara tine sunt un cantec in disonanta

Te rog, hai spune-mi tu
Te-ai gandit vreodata ce faci cand inima refuza sa mai bata?

[Refren:]
Sunt bolnava de dor fara dragostea ta,
Dragostea ta, fara dragostea ta
Sunt bolnava de dor, vreau atingerea ta
Atingerea ta, vreau atingerea ta
Nu ma judeca, sunt nevinovata
Ca noi doi impartim o dragoste incercata

Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
De tine-s legata
Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
Dragoste incercata
Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
De tine-s legata
Si n-am de ales, si n-am de ales
Ca noi doi impartim o Dragoste incercata

La Bestia – Decilo Lyrics

No pude regalarte una flor
Se volvió a marchitar
No pude olvidarme de vos
Cuantas veces ya
No pude descubrir en mi
Esa voluntad
No voy a despejar el don
De la felicidad

Porque tantas veces no he podido escuchar
Porque tantas veces he perdido ya
Porque tantas veces he olvidado la razón
Solo te pido una oportunidad

No pude regalarte una flor
Me volví a marchitar
No pude olvidarme de vos
Cuantas veces ya

Y es que no pudiste resistir el sol

Y no me dejaste impregnarme en vos
Ese viento arrastra y todo lo llevo
Esa chispa un incendio provoco

Porque tantas veces no he podido escuchar
Porque tantas veces he perdió ya
Porque tantas veces he olvidado la razón
Solo te pido una oportunidad

Porque tantas veces no he podido escuchar
Porque tantas veces he perdió ya
Porque tantas veces he olvidado la razón
Solo te pido una oportunidad

Unlike Pluto – Death In Paradise Lyrics

Here we are
Where Mirages are all man made
Where Dreams can kill
Love is always too late

She’s a runaway
Looking for better days
But no one told her
The truth about this place

Sand turns to liquor
Water turns to whine
You thought different but
For you, this isn’t paradise

Tear drops that disappear into
An ocean that doesn’t really care… about you
Everyone wants to be a flower in the desert
But there’s only water (out there) for a few

Here we are
Where Mirages are all man made
Where Dreams can kill and
Love is always too late

So here we are, where mirages are all man made
Some will be able to pay in spades

But For you this isn’t paradise

A girl gone rouge with
A face designed for vogue
But beauty’s just a bandage
She’s all alone

And if she feels the spotlight
She’ll find that some can burn
The game is neverending
Once you get your turn.

The glitter and fame
If you turn around it fades away
But you can have it all depending
On if, you can, pay a, high price

So here we are
Where Mirages are all man made
Where Dreams can kill and
Love is always too late

So here we are, where mirages are all man made
Some will be able to pay in spades
But For you this isn’t paradise

Only thing that keep me out of that bag full of that white

Only thing that keep me out of my head when I’m in bed
Is the photos on the wall back when we had it all

Beach Boys – Kokomo Lyrics

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don’t we go
Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys
There’s a place called Kokomo
That’s where you wanna go to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We’ll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don’t we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo
To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

We’ll put out to sea
And we’ll perfect our chemistry
By and by we’ll defy a little bit of gravity
Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high

Way down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don’t we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo
Port Au Prince I wanna catch a glimpse

Everybody knows
A little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama

Future Of Forestry – Close Your Eyes Lyrics

Promise once it shut you out
You ask, “What was that all about now?”
You and I through rise and fall
We’ve seen the horizon through it all now

Close your eyes this time
‘Cause trust is all we have tonight
But trust will be forever
Safe your dreams will be
‘Cause trust will be the light tonight
So close your eyes this time

The house sits stale, it lets you roam
Inside it just don’t feel like home now

I promise hope will pull you out
For that’s what love is all about

Time will turn this place around
For the man you call Jesus was still a Son like you
Sons will spend their days searching hard for the things
they are made of

Close your eyes this time
Trust will be the light tonight so close your eyes this
time
Trust will be the light tonight so close your eyes

Bounty Killer Says Busta Rhymes Deserves Marcus Garvey Award Over Kanye West

Kanye West was honored with the Marcus Garvey Humanitarian Award, but Bounty Killer argues that there was a more suitable recipient.

Marcus Garvey is a Jamaica-native, but he is also a global icon held in high regard in black history. He was not only the first national hero of Jamaica but also the leader of Pan-Africanism, a worldwide movement that aims to tighten the bond among Africans across the world. He is a well-respected figure in history whose name has been lent to many literary works, institutions, streets, and even awards.

The Chicago Music Awards is one such franchise that has incorporated Garvey’s name. The awards recognize those who have made significant contributions to various music forms. For his great deal of contributions last year, Kanye West was honored with the Marus Garvey Humanitarian Award this year. However, the decision did not sit well with the public.

The very topic of discussion was an awkward one for many. Even the curator of the event himself, Jamaican TV personality, publisher, and entrepreneur, Ephraim Martin, was visibly taken aback when asked to speak on Kanye West receiving the award. In a statement to The Gleaner, Martin said, “Kanye getting this award is kind of a surprise to me. But he has been making contributions to different countries, and he came out on top of all [the other persons] nominees in that category.” While it is conceivable that Kanye simply outdid his fellow nominees as the founder and chairman of the Chicago Music Awards suggests, some Jamaicans are questioning what the rapper has done for Garvey’s country to earn such an accolade.

Bounty Killer / Beenie Man

Bounty Killer was one of the many who weighed in on the conversation online. When an Instagram post captioning the story that West was honored with an award “named in honor of Jamaica’s first national hero,” Bounty voiced his opinion in the comments. “WTF HE HAS DONE FOR JAMAICA THOUGH PPL?” the dancehall veteran asked. “What a piece groupie move is Busta Rhymes should be getting that real advocate of Jamaican culture worldwide.” Kanye West visited Jamaica twice last year – once to link up with reggae icon Buju Banton in the studio and, of course, when he brought his Sunday Service to the island – an unforgettable experience that no doubt was a great highlight for the country as it was the first international stop for the popular event.

As some people reminded in the comments, the Marcus Garvey Humanitarian Award has nothing to do with Jamaica in particular, as the recipient is honored for contributions far beyond that. In a single year, Kanye West made significant donations to several causes, especially those within the black community. He donated a 529 college savings fund for Gianna Floyd, the 6-year-old daughter of the late George Floyd, who was murdered at the hands of police brutality. The donation secures a tertiary education for Gianna as it will cover her college tuition in full.

The entertainer also donated to the families of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor and covered the legal fees for the teams still fighting for justice for their families. In addition, Kanye made significant contributions to We Women Empowered, Buju Banton’s Buju Banton Foundation, Chicago black-owned businesses struggling in the pandemic, and he announced in late October that he will be teaming up with the Haitian government “to make a transformational investment to bring jobs, development, help support local farmers and fishermen.”

While many people disagree with the decision to honor Kanye West with this award, we can’t disagree with the facts. Kanye West has donated millions of dollars to causes affecting the black community, and he has committed to contributing to the improvement of countries in the Caribbean as well as cities at home in the United States. The billionaire rap mogul who ran for U.S. President in 2020 is no doubt a controversial figure but should that take away from his philanthropy?

OMB Peezy Arrested For Roddy Ricch & 42 Dugg’s Video Shooting In Atlanta

OMB Peezy was arrested and charged in connection with the shooting at Roddy Ricch’s video shoot.

Alabama rapper OMB Peezy is facing criminal charges following a shooting incident that took place on February 21 at the site of a music video shoot in Atlanta for Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg. According to reports, the 24-year-old rapper is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon as well as possession of a firearm during a felony.

The incident took place on Sunday, February 21, at a steelyard in Atlanta, where a music video was being filmed for Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg. Early reports suggested that the shooter was unknown, while it was confirmed that neither rapper was involved nor were they harmed. Three people were left injured from the shooting, including Antoine Blake, 25, and Vernon Moulder, 29, who were reported to be in stable condition.

The third person was believed by paramedics to have been cut by debris from the shooting. Both 42 Dugg and Roddy Ricch later took to social media to relieve fans who were worried that they’d been harmed. It is not confirmed that either of them was even present on set at the time the shooting actually took place.

A source told WSB-TV Atlanta that gunshots rang out abruptly, causing a crowd of approximately 50 people to disperse. “Everyone started running, trying to get out. Or take cover, lot of places to take cover in there,” the source said. When officers arrived, a man was detained for drug possession, but there were no shooting suspects. OMB Peezy, who is now being charged with the crime, is currently being held in custody at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.

OMB Peezy remains behind bars and photo of him from his first court appearance is making the rounds. The image shows the Alabama rapper wearing a jumpsuit and a mask.

The rapper is slated to release his album Too Deep For Tears this Friday (March 5).

Neal Morse – Father Of Forgiveness Lyrics

Who’s that up the road?
The man who went his own way
Who wasted all his winnings
Has he come home to stay?
The son who’d lost his way
Is back among the living
Let’s take it back to the beginning…

Oh, Father I’ve returned
I’m sorry I was wrong
I feel so undeserving
After all I’ve done
But I see your open eyes
And I feel your spirit rising in my chest
You’re the Father of forgiveness (I’ve come home)
You’re the Father of forgiveness

Now that we are here
And after all the tears
Father what do you want from me?
All I have is yours
I don’t have much to give
But a heart that needs forgiving
The flesh is tired but the spirit’s willing

Oh, Father I’ve returned
The one who left alone
And you give me your kingdom
And tell me it’s my own
And I see your open arms
And I know that I have found my place of rest (the man’s home)

In the Father of forgiveness (I’ve come home)
You’re the Father of forgiveness

No need to run
Under the son
You are a brother

Answer the call
He loves us all
Just as the other

Just take the fall in total trust
Like a child trust it’s mother

Let’s reach up to the Father (in Jesus Christ)
Let’s reach up to the Father (in Jesus Christ)
Let’s reach up to the Father (in Jesus Christ)
Let’s reach up to the Father!

Oh, Father I’ve returned
I’m sorry I was wrong
I feel so undeserving
After all I’ve done
And I see your open arms
And I know that I have found my place of rest (the man’s home)
In the Father of forgiveness (the man’s home -I’ve come home – the man’s home)
Oh, Father of forgiveness (welcome home)

Dove Cameron – True Love Lyrics

If I could do it all over, maybe I’d do it different
Maybe I wouldn’t be here, in this position

I found you then I lost you, looking back is torture
And it hurts to know I let you go, you live right around the corner

And I could’ve had it all, could’ve had it all

True love, I know I had it
True love, was so hard to find
True love, If I could get it back,
I’d never let it go this time

True love, is an inspiration
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, If I could get it back,
I’d never let it go, I’d never let it go this time

Feeling it all around me, wondering how I blew it
And I wanna know the secret, of how they, do it

No such thing as perfection, I’m still learning that lesson

To forgive is key to forgetting me
And I’m staring at my reflection

And I could’ve had it all, could’ve had it all

True love, I know I had it
True love, was so hard to find
True love, If I could get it back,
I’d never let it go this time

True love, is an inspiration

True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, If I could get it back,
I’d never let it go, I’d never let it go this time

If I knew then what I’d do now I’d be with you tonight
If I knew then what I’d do now we’d be alright

I could’ve had it all, could’ve had it all, could’ve had it all, could’ve had all

True love, I know I had it
True love, was so hard to find (could’ve had it all)
True love, If I could get it back,
I’d never let it go this time (I’d never let it go)

True love, is an inspiration (oh)
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, If I could get it back, yeah
If only I could get it back, I’d

True love, I’d never let it go
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, I could’ve had it, could’ve had it, could’ve had it all

True love, is an inspiration
True love, it was mine, all mine
True love, yeah
If I could get it back. I’d never let it go this time
I’d never let it go, this time

True love

Dove Cameron – As Long As I Have You Lyrics

I tried, on my own I thought I’d get there
Around and round
But I was only getting nowhere
Then you came along and gave me something
Something that I could believe in, trust in
And I won’t go back again

[Chorus:]
As long as I have you
I can live like there’s nothing left to lose
Unbreak, every fracture in my heart
Nothing in this world could ever tear this love apart
They say you gotta take the good with the bad
I’ll take it on as long as I have you

(As long as I have)
You

I’ve been spinning circles in this ocean
Stuck in my ways, but you put everything in motion
This time, I want you to see the real me
I wanna open up completely, deeply
I’ll never be alone again

[Chorus]

And I realize now,
I’m better with you
You got here right on time
Yeah, you were my breakthrough
You are my breakthrough

[Chorus]

Sierra – Save The Last Dance Lyrics

Save The Last Dance

You can dance-every dance with the guy
Who gives you the eye, let him hold you tight
You can smile-every smile for the man
Who held your hand neath the pale moon light
But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darlin’ save the last dance for me

Oh I know that the musics fine
Like sparklin’ wine, go and have your fun
Laugh and sing, but while we’re apart
Don’t give your heart to anyone
But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darlin’ save the last dance for me

Baby don’t you know I love you so
Can’t you feel it when we touch
I will never never let you go
I love you oh so much

You can dance, go and carry on
Till the night is gone

And it’s time to go
If he asks if you’re all alone
Can he walk you home, you must tell him no
‘Cause don’t forget who’s taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
Save the last dance for me

Oh I know that the musics fine
Like sparklin’ wine, go and have your fun
Laugh and sing, but while we’re apart
Don’t give your heart to anyone
But don’t forget who’s takin’ you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darlin’ save the last dance for me

So don’t forget who’s taking you home
And in whose arms you’re gonna be
So darling, save the last dance for me
O… baby want you save the last dance for me
U.you make me promise that you save the last dance for me
Save the last dance the very last dance for me.

Koffee Models Calvin Klein’s New Underwear Collection Showing Toned Abs

Koffee turned heads and raise some eyebrows by modeling Calvin Klein’s spring 2021 underwear collection.

It’s March 2021, spring is upon us, and Koffee is gracing us with another surprise new corporate endorsement deal while showing some skins while she’s at it. The reggae/dancehall crooner is known to wear ample often baggy clothing, so being an underwear model will come as a huge surprise for her fans who are already reacting to her post on her Instagram page.

She compliments the fit with a Calvin Klein denim jacket with socks and sneakers, showing off her toned legs and abs. The pint-size dancehall star has always maintained her toned physique, but for the first time, her fans get a glimpse of it.

Koffee joins other celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion, Rina Sawayama, Jacob Elordi, Terence Nance, Janaya Future Khan, and more in Calvin Klein’s spring 2021 campaign. This is her first underwear deal and her first with the iconic clothing brand.

Last year, Koffee signed endorsement deals with Nike/Jordan and MasterCard, which saw her becoming brand ambassadors for both Fortune 500 companies. The singer attributes her success in winning over corporate companies to her positive music and attitude. This, she revealed, has also help Jamaica on the global stage.

“The positivity that I put in my music has put me on the map, has helped me to put my country even more on the map, has brought me across the world and showed me a lot of different things,” she said. “So, that’s something that I wish to continue to hold at the forefront of what I represent.”

While speaking about her deal with Jordan in November last year, Koffee opened up about self-love and exuding confidence in herself. “Confidence begins with self-love and self-belief. I don’t really know how to tell somebody to love themselves, necessarily, but even me, I have to find a way to love myself, to emit love into the world,” the singer said.

Aside from stacking up on endorsement deals, Koffee continues to see major success locally and worldwide with her music. She told Rolling Stone that her sophomore album will be about bringing people together and finding solutions to problems. Positivity will continue to be a major theme of her music.

With a Grammy Award under her belt, she is looking to add another when she released her second album later this year. While we await new music, we’re still bumping her previous releases of timeless joints like “Lockdown,” “Pressure,” and her mega-hit “Toast.”

Popcaan’s Virtual Performance With Beres Hammond Captivates Dancehall Lovers

Popcaan and Beres Hammond captivates dancehall lovers around the world with their performance on VP’s “Love From A Distance” concert.

Love was flowing through the air and via the digital airwaves on Sunday night when legendary reggae crooner Beres Hammond teamed up with VP Records for a mind-blowing virtual experience. The virtual concert dubbed “Love From A Distance” saw a plethora of persons logging on the catch the performances from Beres Hammond, Buju Banton, Marcia Griffiths, and even a cameo appearance from the “Unruly Boss” himself, Popcaan.

“The engagement from fans throughout the week and especially Sunday night, was a real joy to witness,” Christopher Chin, executive producer of the event and CEO of VP Records, told Urban Islandz. “This was a moment of pride that everyone could share.”

Cruising through his set effortlessly, Hammond performed popular tracks such as “Double Trouble” and “Putting Up A Resistance” before he called Popcaan to the stage. The “Bank & God” singer happily graced the stage in an all-white getup. Before jumping into their duet, Popcaan took a brief moment to salute Beres and declared him a “living legend.”

They then went ahead and performed their soon-to-be-released track, “God is Love,” following that honorary moment. Both men blended their vocals to provide a truly moving rendition, with the contrast of seniority and youthful exuberance, adding both soul and energy to the set. We await a date for when the new track will be released, but from all indications, it has the makings of a hit written all over. As one of the leading voices in lovers’ rock, Beres has worked with other dancehall talents, such as Buju Banton and Shaggy, to deliver timeless classics.

As it turns out, Buju Banton and Marcia Griffiths also stepped up to assist Beres with their hit singles, much to the delight of their adoring fans. “I Wish,” “Falling In Love All Over Again,” and “Pull Up,” spearheaded the much-talked-about Buju/Beres slot. The “Electric Boogie” singer helped to serenade the global audience with their collaborative effort “Live On.”

As the world continues to battle the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we may indeed see more and more artists hosting their own virtual concerts.

Harmony House Music joined forces with VP Records, Frame By Frame Productions, along with the Reggae Month Secretariat in Jamaica’s Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport. Minister Olivia “Babsy” Grange, to produced the well curated broadcast. Grange, who was a part of the VIP Zoom party viewing the performances virtually, praised Beres Hammonds for his set.

“Jamaica is truly indebted to all our artistes and their support teams for giving so generously of their talent and services to make Reggae Month 2021 a resounding success,” Grange said. “When the likes of Beres Hammond steps forward in this way, you know we are doing something right. This kind of collaboration is good for the music and Jamaica, and his inspirational and uplifting performance was just what the country needed at this time.”

Anata – Disobedience Pays Lyrics

Manacled into submission
You’ve let go of control
The rules are mine in this game of ours
Face down, don’t look at me!
All you feel is my smell
And the steel impossible to wear out
I’m your god, your heaven and hell

Know me, your master
Learn my rules by trial and error
What is accepted
And for what you will be corrected
Disobedience pays

Now submit to my will!
I am mercy, I am pain
Your sovereign, your carer and cane

Let go of all your guilt
I forgive you, my slave
The sound of your cured defiance
Liberates the both of us

Know me, your master
Learn my rules by trial and error
What is accepted
And for what you will be corrected
Disobedience pays

Lessons in obedience
Cures your unbridled behavior
Disobedience pays

A moment of absolute power
Stuns my feelings of insufficiency

Lil Uzi Vert Shares His True Feelings For City Girls’ JT

Lil Uzi Vert declares his true feelings for his girlfriend JT.

The ongoing relationship saga with Uzi and City Girls rapper JT seems to be a never-ending one. It seems with each passing day, a new episode is revealed, leaving their fans waiting patiently for what will happen next. The latest episode between JT and Uzi went a little different from what fans have grown accustomed to, as Uzi showered his queen with kind words and seafood. Their drama played out on social media to an ever-present fanbase.

On Sunday, JT made her desire for crab legs known to the public via her Twitter account when she tweeted, “I love crab legs.” Uzi responded to the call with a pledge to have them delivered to his girl’s location pronto. “they on the way,” he tweeted.

“They brung them up thank you,” the City Girls member responded. Lil Uzi Vert even went a step further when he shared a story on his Instagram of JT chowing down on the seafood, which was the first hint of them being in the same location.

The pair have been dodging questions about their relationship for months, only offering small hints, such as their now popular bathroom photo. This time around Uzi backed up his earlier act of kindness with a few words of affirmation.

“JT is the one,” came the bold claim. “I had to be real with myself I love JT and y’all will too.” He shared additional photos of himself and JT in matching Moncler x Rick Owens boots, which ultimately proved they were out together.

JT is the one ?

— Uzi London ????® (@LILUZIVERT) March 1, 2021

My Darkqueen ??

— Uzi London ????® (@LILUZIVERT) March 1, 2021

I had 2 be real with myself I love JT and y’all will 2? https://t.co/3sLL4spEtP

— Uzi London ????® (@LILUZIVERT) March 1, 2021

Yet, this happy moment was already being challenged when reports of alleged text messages from Uzi’s former partner Brittany Byrd were made public. In the text, Uzi is supposedly confirming a relationship with Brittany while stating that he had moved on from JT. If Uzi’s latest posts did not confirm that he was still tied to the Miami-based rapper, then JT’s reply sealed the deal. She weighed in on these rumors of the alleged text when she tweeted, “Turnt a trick to my husband.”

Now that they have confirmed their relationship, do you think they’ll be blessed with the title of a hip-hop power couple?

Residents – Neediness Lyrics

Please, please, oh please
Won’t you help me?
Please help me
Won’t you help me?
There’s something that I need

I once made friends
With an other
A brother and a rudder
A lover of my needs

We found the beauty
Of darkness, apartness

And the heartless
Arabesque of need

I know nothing
Is ever lying or crying
Or denying
If its needs are pleased

Please, please, oh please
Let me help you, I’ll help you
Can I help you?
I know just what you need

Marley & Tosh Family Lead Tributes For Bunny Wailer

The Marley and Tosh family among some big names in reggae are tributing Bunny Wailer following hos passing.

Legendary Reggae singer Bunny Wailer, real name Neville O’Riley Livingston, died on Tuesday (March 2) at the age of 73. Bunny Wailer was the last surviving member of the iconic reggae group “The Wailers,” which he formed along with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh in the early 1960s.

The Wailers was, and perhaps is, the most iconic music group out of Jamaica that gained international fame and had classic reggae hits like “Stir It Up” and “Simmer Down.” Bunny Wailer broke from the group in 1974 and took on a solo career. He went on to win three Grammy Awards, and in 2017 was conferred with an Order of Merit from the Jamaican government, the country’s fourth highest honor.

It is still unclear as to the exact cause of his death; however, he had been in and out of the hospital after suffering a stroke in July 2020. Tributes have already started to pour in for the late singer, with some describing him as a legend in his own right.

Stephen Marley posted, “Sending love to the Livingston family as brother Bunny Wailer makes his transition. A founding member of the Wailers, Bob’s stepbrother, and a reggae icon in his own right, he will be missed but not forgotten. “Live for yourself and you will live in vain—live for others, you will live again. In the kingdom of JAH, man shall reign. Pass it on.” Rest in power ?? @bunnywailerarchives”

Andrew Holness, Jamaica’s Prime Minister, also expressed his condolences, calling the late singer’s death “a great loss for Jamaica and for reggae.”

“Today Jamaica lost a Reggae legend, the larger-than-life, Neville “Bunny Wailer” Livingston,” PM Holness said. “The last time I saw Bunny we shared a good laugh and spent quite some time talking about the influence of Rastafari in Jamaica. His contribution to Jamaican culture is priceless and his voice has touched many around the globe. We will treasure his rich legacy.”

Bunny was born on April 10, 1947, and spent his childhood days in Nine Miles, where he was raised by his father, this was where he met Bob Marley, and the two became fast friends. They were raised as stepbrothers after Marley’s mother had a daughter for Bunny’s father. When they moved to Trench Town in Kingston, they met Peter Tosh and formed the legendary reggae originally called The Wailing Wailers.

In 1965 they released their debut album The Wailing Wailers, and in 1970 their second album, Soul Rebels, was released. Their last album as a group, “Burnin,” was released in 1973. Bunny did his first solo album, Blackheart Man, in 1976 after the group broke up.

Bunny is survived by 13 children, 10 sisters, 3 brothers, and a host of grandchildren. His life partner of over 50 years, Jean Watt, has reportedly been missing since May 2020. Condolences to the Livingston family as they go through this time of bereavement.

Jim Jones – Reppin’ Time Lyrics

[Intro]
I’M BACK! I’m on my Dipset shit, 20-30 grand in one pocket, foreign car
outside…living life fast, you niggaz need to catch up, slow pokes
NYC…Here We Go Again!

DIP,DIP SET! I GET ON EXTRA GRIND, I GET ON EXTRA GRIND, I GET ON EXTRA
GRIND…WHEN IT’S, WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME
WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S REPPIN
TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME

[Chorus One]
I GET ON EXTRA GRIND, I GET ON EXTRA GRIND
I GET ON EXTRA GRIND WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIP DIPSET!)
WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIPSET)
WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIP DIPSET!)

It’s Dipset Season, you ready to grind? Get money, rep yours, what you know
about that? Everyday we hustle, you hear me, YOU HEAR ME? I got money on my
mind man, we the talk of New York
you niggaz want action, I got a movie for ya!

[Jim Jones]
I’m in the coupe relaxing (like that)
you see the roof collapsing (drop the top!)
I got my paper up although I’m still kufi smacking! (smack the shit out you!)
And it’s God fearing, foreign car steering
60 thou Jabar wearing, just beat a trial hearing
You should catch me walking cocky out the courtroom (diddy bopping!)
Like eat my dust, a buck 40 for the Porsche zoom (ZOOOOOOOOOM!)
Back in population (what else?)
we cop drops to race ’em (BALLIIIING!)
we getting money over here WHAT’S YOUR OCCUPATION?!?!
We on top of things, and we got them things (them birds)
But we only sell them birds, you tryna cop a wing? (you a petty hustler)
I know the real Rich…the REAL Richard Porter
RIP he left the hood to us, we own the corners! (HARLEM!)
The bright lights and my big city
my ice bright and the wrist silly (FLOSSIIIIIIING!)
I’m risking Fed time, front page headline
make the pedal hit the floor til the throttle red line!

[Chorus Two]
DIP DIP DIP DIPSET! WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIPSET)
WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIPSET)
WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIPSET)

WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME, WHEN IT’S WHEN IT’S REPPIN TIME (DIP DIPSET!)

[Jim Jones]
I let my pants sag (why?), so I can show my ass (KISS MY ASS!)
It’s twenty g’s a pocket, that’s cause we blowing cash (that’s NOTHING!)
And when the photo’s flash (SMILE!), Gallardies going pass
Lights, camera’s, autographs…”Wet Willies”, call a cab
The fast life is pricey, the time piece is icey (BLINGING!)
And my niggaz moving fish scale just like the Pisces!
Momma raised a thug, lawyers when we face the judge (Kelina!)
This is the chance we take to try and put ya brain on drugs
…and we invade the clubs standing on the furniture
Throwing gang signs, two stepping with our burners tucked (EASTSIIIIDE!)
and we will burn you up like three star alarm
WE ARE THE BOMB HUNDRED G’S ON THE CHARM (Byrd Gang!)
You’d think I own the cleaners how I wash that paper
And now we at the dealer tryna cop all flavors (BALLIIIIIIING!)
We at the dealer dog (yeah), so how you feeling y’all?!?
….just tear the ceiling off, f*ck the light we peeling off!

[Chorus Two]

[Chorus One]

[Jim Jones]
The young and the restless…live life reckless
House money on the necklace the pigs want him arrested
Cause I’m obsessed with the guns and the vest’s
cause when you get some cake, the candles come with a death wish!
The rock star living (what else?), the hot cars and women (LAVISH LIFE!)
…the God forgive him, hope the cop cars don’t get ’em (SQUALIIIIIIIIE!)
This for them niggaz that…at the club, throwing stacks (BALLIN!)
At Star Wars, they threw two I threw four back!
and I’m back, it’s Mr. New York City
My hat to the back, I stay flyer than a Frisbee
We still diddy bopping (yeah)
we still could get it poppin (yeah!)
ain’t nothing change but the year of the Range
And the clouds still moving with the squamy (loaded)
and the gangsta’s don’t die, we get MONEEEEY and move to Miami!

When it’s repping time, I get on extra grind
40 cal, an extra nine Dipset the cities mine!

[Chorus Two]
