Alkaline has addressed his critics who accused him of buying views on YouTube.
Last year, the Vendetta deejay came under scrutiny from dancehall fans, particularly Vybz Kartel fans, who claimed that he has been paying to over-inflate his Vevo views. The allegations comes after Alkaline racked up a number of views for some newly released music. In one case, he clocked a million views in less than a week for his single “Suave” which went on to add millions more views in the weeks after.
In his new single “Mirage” Alkaline address his critics. “In a league of my own, no am not your opponent, nothing me hate in a life like a snake or a f***** rodent, them can’t stop my show that a one thing me know… Them a say me numbers them too good, them a say me a buy views pon Vevo, okay then still a give them mayhem.”
Alkaline also address his enemies whom he say are actively sending the police after him and although he gets frustrated, he still manages to keep his cool and maintain his focus thanks to the council of his mother. “Mirage” is Alkaline’s first single since the start of the year and his Vendetta fans are basking in the moment because they have been waiting to hear what he has to say.
The track already sparked a heated debate on social media about who Alkaline is referring to when deejaying about taking out someone and their entire crew. It could be a number of people including Vybz Kartel, Popcaan, NotNice, Sean Kingston, Tommy Lee Sparta, and more, all of whom he has been beefing with. Kartel might be the only name you can exclude over the mere fact that he is behind bars. But his incarceration is not stopping him from going after Alkaline musically.
Beres Hammond and Buju Banton on the same stage would be one for the ages.
Buju Banton is a few months away from being released from prison and several local promoters are already gearing up for his return to the musical scene. One thing is for sure, his first concert will be a grand affair. Reggae legend Beres Hammond has already indicated that he wants to share the stage with the Gargamel and he doesn’t care where the show will be.
Beres and Buju have collaborated on a number of singles over the years including “Pull It Up” and “Who Sey (Big Man Don’t Cry).” The two singers have remained closed friends outside of working together musically. Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is currently in the final year of his 10-year prison sentence in Florida for drug trafficking. He is slated for release in December of this year.
The last time Buju performed at a concert was in 2011 at a show in Miami during his high profile drug trial. The Grammy-winning reggae singer was convicted on three counts of drug trafficking charges in 2011 and sent to federal prison for 10 years. He appealed the conviction several times over the years but lost on all of his attempts. Since his incarceration, Buju has not released any new music and sources say he has been writing behind bars so you can expect some new music later this year or early next year.
Agent Sasco announced he is dropping a new album in May this year.
Sasco, also known in dancehall circles as Assassin, announced that he has been working on a new project. The dancehall legend recently opened his own studio at his home where he has been doing his recording. His last album Theory of Reggaetivity was released in 2016. The project earned Sasco a lot of respect for its quality and depth. He told that Star that the project started out as a 12-track effort and has grown significantly since then so he is close to finish.
“It started off as a 12-song project and now we’re up to 14 because we start finding some song where we say ‘no we cant leave off dat,’” Sasco said. “We’re close to the finish line and I’m thinking that we should have a solid project for the people.”
If there is any dancehall artist who is deserving of a honorary Grammy award its Agent Sasco. With two decades under his belt in the music business, he has amassed a vast catalog over the years that helped cemented his place as one of the most lyrically acclaimed dancehall artist of all-time.
As for his aspirations of getting a Grammy, Agent Sasco says he is just making music for the fans and if it earned him one of those trophies then its icing on the cake.
