DJ Lytmas collaborates with konshens in producing IT FEEL GOOD ALBUM MIX
Konshens drops his surprised sophomore album “It Feel Good.”
The dancehall deejay dropped the project on SoundCloud last week without notice. After dominating the airwaves last year with singles like “Bruk Off Yuh Back” and “Turn Me On,” Konshens returned with a full-length album. The 16-track project features guest appearances from Kosa, Tarrus Riley, Rvssian, Rick Ross, Satori, Bakersteez, and Shaggy. You will also find production from Rvssian, Don Corleone, and Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor.
Unlike his more hardcore dancehall focus debut LP Mental Maintenance, Konshens incorporate more international sound on this project like the trap infused single “Big Belly” featuring Rick Ross and Head Concussion producer Rvssian. There is also a more roots reggae lovers rock single “Real Real Love” and then the feel-good single “Mirror” featuring his longtime collaborator Tarrus Riley.
There is also the previously released singles “Turn Me On” and the original version of “Bruk Off Yuh Back” without Chris Brown. The album is now available on iTunes and other streaming platforms like Spotify and Google Play. You can also stream it below on SoundCloud.
Are Safaree Samuels and Juju dating?
The two Love and Hip Hop New York stars are fueling dating rumors
and some sources are saying if they are not already together, they
will be before the weekend is over. Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend has been
in demand since his meat was leaked online a week ago. His people
told Mitego Sasa exclusively that his music sales and bookings
have gone through the roof and females have been turning out in
droves to his shows to get up close and personal with him.
But there is one female who is getting a lot of attention from Safaree
right now and that’s his Love and Hip Hop New York co-star Juju.
The pair was in Charlotte on Friday where Safaree had an event for
the CIAA weekend. The Jamaican born rapper posted a video of
himself and Juju in an Uber heading to Wild Wings to grab some food
with some friends. Sources confirmed that they did pull up at the
popular wing spot on East M.L.K. Blvd in Charlotte just after
“I called uber pool and juju was in here,” Safaree wrote. “This is
the 1st time I’m not listening to #hunnid & @iamjuju_ in here
hating!! Wild wings We on the wayyy! Straiitttt and don’t start y’all
On a side note, right after Safaree photos leaked , newly single Juju
posted a photo of the two on her Instagram. She recently broke up
with Cam’ron and says she is single but not ready to mingle. Perhaps
she changed her mind after seeing SB’s massive patois meat
splattered all over the net.
Safaree also posted a video of himself signing his first boob where he
expressed how emotional he was afterward while reflecting on how
far he is coming since his breakup with Nicki Minaj. “I signed my 1st
boob today and dead azz got emotional after,” he wrote. “Signed a
bunch after .. necks hands and asses.. Im such a cancer life is
crazy. I’m grateful and still have alottttaaaaa of work to do… Thank
you to everyone supporting me! Straittttt.”
Safaree new single “Hunnid” is currently on iTunes and its fire.
On 2/03/2018…Dj Lytmas Mother Rose Owino Graduated from the Kisumu Politechnic….. On the official profile page of DJ Lytmas ….he wrote….
”Somebody help me congratulate my Mummy….
Love you mom…. More life…
#congratulations…. Following same path Mummy”
There is no love lost between Vybz Kartel and Popcaan, at least not
on the Unruly side.
Kartel and his former protege have a strained relationship since his
incarceration in 2011, but over the years we’ve constantly seen
Popcaan giving him shout-outs on stage and on social media even in
the face of harsh criticism from Gazanation fans. While this is not a
direct shout-out on Instagram, it’s a good enough gesture on the part
of Vybz Kartel to recognize that Popcaan is still a product of his now
disbanded Portmore Empire.
The World Boss posted an old clip on the Gram a few days ago from
his single “Du Weh U Wah Fi Duh” which includes the Popcaan lyrics.
“Yo see the corolla and think seh a cabbi / A addi wi give u supm fi
deal wid u shabbi / Man a bawl and a seh don’t dweet mi daddy /
Popcaan a go wadda dem / Becuz dem no bad at all a mi name them
a call,” he deejays.
This track dates back to the early days of Portmore Empire before he
was arrested in September 2011. Two of the main contentions Vybz
Kartel and the people around him have with Popcaan is that he is an
informer and he never visited the deejay behind bars. Tommy Lee
Sparta also previously had a strained relationship with Kartel but
has since repaired that relationship and even visited his former
mentor at GP. The specifics of what he allegedly told police officers
are not known to the public, but over the past few years we’ve seen
Shawn Storm and Kartel’s sons, PG-13, release diss tracks calling
Poppy an informer.
Why is this Instagram video significant? Knowing Vybz Kartel, if he
had completely written off Popcaan he would not have included the
portion of the lyrics in the video. Perhaps it’s a sign he is sending
towards the Unruly Boss to make amends and let’s be father and son
Last month, Popcaan wished Vybz Kartel a happy birthday on his IG
and got ripped by Gazanation fans.
Vybz Kartel won’t be getting any visits at GP anytime soon.
Authorities have suspended all inmates visits at the Tower Street Adult
Correctional Centre in Kingston indefinitely. The move came after prison
officials discovered two large underground holes at the prison and
believed they were being dug by inmates who were trying to escape.
Superintendent Ivan Randall, confirmed that the decision to halt all
prison visits is as a result of the discovery of the holes.
Gaza sources told us that Vybz Kartel was expecting two high profile
visits at the prison next week and those are canceled. “Two well-known
individuals were scheduled to visit the World Boss next week and we
just learned that we have to cancel,” sources said. “So we don’t know
when visits will resume but we pretty much have to cancel at last
We’re also told that Vybz Kartel has nothing to do with the two holes
that were being dug nor was he planning an escape. “Addi got nothing to
do with the tunnels and he wasn’t planning to escape or anything like
that, he is focused on the upcoming appeal,” we’re told. “Knowing them
they will try to pin this on him to sabotage his appeal, but we are making
it clear that he has nothing to do with that.”
Clearly, this is some major development at the prison and authorities
says they are concerned about public safety. The prison housed over
1500 inmates and their families are already complaining about their
inability to visit their loved ones behind bars.
Vybz Kartel, whose real is Adidja Palmer, was moved from the Horizon
Remand center to GP two years ago. He is currently serving life in
prison for murder but is appealing the conviction. His appeal trial is set
for July of this year.
Aidonia is the biggest dancehall artist in Jamaica currently, according to Seani B.
This is a remarkably bold statement from the BBC 1Xtra radio host who was in Jamaica recently partying and doing some label related business. While in Jamrock, Seani B stopped by Nightly Fix where he discussed the current state of reggae/dancehall in Jamaica and overseas. One particular statement caught the attention of everyone and while some may disagree with his assessment, no one can deny that Aidonia is having an impressive run on the music scene right now.
“For me the biggest artist right now out of Jamaica, for me is Aidonia,” he said. “I’ve been plotting and watching Aidonia’s career.” Seani B added that Donia’s smash hit single “Yeah Yeah” was the biggest dancehall single last year and that we can all agree with.
“Yeah Yeah Yeah, you have a thing that you call club deejays in England like hip hop R&B and the rest of it that don’t generally play dancehall,” he added. “They were playing that [Yeah Yeah]. I’ve had girls, Indian girls, Asian girls at my station saying ‘Seani when are you gonna play that yeah yeah yeah song’ and it’s so simple, catchy, and I think Aidonia’s flow on it is like second level. It’s very advanced, it’s got everything that you needs.”
Seani B also addressed his controversial interview with Popcaan from last year where the Unruly Boss infamously said 99% of dancehall hates him and if Vybz Kartel hates him, he will still prevail. “With the Popcaan thing, he was just talking and then he kind of just went off on a rant about Kartel,” the disc jockey said. “He didn’t talk about Kartel in that manner and when he said 99%, it was the internet that talked about the Kartel thing. What he said was 99% of artists hate him, Alkaline has more or less said that to me, as many dancehall artists have said that to me.”
Beenie Man says he is one of the hardest working deejay in dancehall even after so many years.
The dancehall legend also made it clear that he has nothing against Spice despite their running last year. During a sit down on Nightly Fix, Beenie Man opened up about a number of topics including his legacy and current status in dancehall. The deejay insisted that he is still the king of dancehall because he isn’t baptized.
One of the criticisms of Beenie Man and other older deejays in the business is that they still feels the need to compete with the younger generation of artists. When asked about that top, Beenie strongly pushed back against the assumption saying he doesn’t compete with any other artists in the business but still work hard because that is naturally who he is.
“The problem is I cannot go a week without making five songs, I will be a mad man,” the Doc said. “Listen, music just come by the beat, you hear the beat and lyrics start build, so every beat that plays in the studio you build a different song for it. It’s not competing, this is my job, this is what I do, I make music, so without me making music then me at my yard sit down a watch TV or a play game and I don’t do that.”
On whether or not he is taking away attention from younger artists, Beenie Man said, “This is the problem with dancehall music, why one man have to get all the glory, why everybody cannot get them own glory?”
“Alkaline have him own fans, Vybz Kartel have him own fans, Popcaan have him own fans, everybody have them own fans, so everybody is getting them own glory,” he continues. “Why is it that I am a threat to everybody? Because you is that man fan and you want that man to be where I am? Two entity can’t hold the same space one of us is going to blow up.
Ninjaman is weighing his options to appeal but seems its heavily dependent on the outcome of Vybz Kartel appeal.
The dancehall icon is two months into his life sentence and already he is considering filing an appeal for a new trial. Sources told Urban Islandz that Ninjaman felt like he was never given a fair trial and the prosecution used a witness who he feels wasn’t credible. Additionally, he thinks that his murder conviction was the authority’s way of sending a message amidst the rapid rise in crime rate across the island.
“They set an example out of him purely because he is a famous entertainer, it was almost like they used his old sins against him,” a rep for Ninjaman told us. “Was that fair for him, of course not. It’s like getting convicted even before the trial started.”
Now that Ninjaman and his attorney are weighing his appeal options, one of the things that they discussed is Vybz Kartel upcoming appeal trial which is set for July this year after being pushed by from February. Ninja’s lawyer, Valerie Neita-Robertson is also one of the lawyers on Vybz Kartel’s case.
“Being that they are two high profile artists, the system will want to keep them locked up to send a message,” sources said. “Although both cases are totally different, the fact that they’re two big-name entertainers, the system will treat them different, they will have a tougher trial because of the added press around their cases. The government will not want to look bad on the world stage. Remember these two cases made headlines around the world, so think about how bad they will look if both of them walk free on appeal.”
Vybz Kartel’s attorneys were the ones who asked the appeal court judge for more time to prepare for the case. We’re told that Ninjaman trial also played a role in that decision, the lawyers felt like that case was too close to the appeal trial and would be too fresh in the judges mind.
The lawyers know that they will have to present a near-perfect case and even then, they still have an uphill battle to prove Vybz Kartel’s innocence. “Kartel is at a disadvantage any way you look at it but yet still he has a stronger case than Ninjaman so it makes perfect sense that he would want to wait on the outcome of that case to make his next move,” his rep added. “The worst case scenario is they both spend the rest of their lives in prison.”
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, was sentenced to prison for life for murdering his friend Clive “Lizard” Williams. His protege Shawn Storm, and friends Kahira Jones and Andre St John were also convicted and sent to prison for life. The aced dancehall star will have to serve 35 years before being eligible for parole. In contract, Ninjaman, real name Desmond Ballentine, will have to serve 25 years before getting a parole hearing. By then both artists will be in their 70s.

Alkaline is being accused of stealing Popcaan ‘s flow for his new
song “Hard Tackle.”
Dapstream News reported this week that Alkaline new song “Hard
Tackle” is the top trending dancehall song on YouTube. The anti-
haters anthem was released on Saturday and already it’s stirring up
some controversies with Popcaan fans going on the attack claiming
that the Vendetta boss bites his style from his 2016 hustle anthem
“ Nah Idle .”
Poppy injected a catchy line in the chorus “You cyaa just a idle, a
idle, a idle, a idle / Granny tell mi say yo mouth need waan bible.”
Fans are comparing that line to Alkaline’s chorus “That’s why me
say hard tackle, hard tackle, Hard tackle, hard tackle / Life everyday
is a hard battle.” Listening to the two songs you will hear a distinct
difference, but the Unruly fans are adamant that their artist’s style
was used by the Vendetta leader.
Alkaline fans are pushing back saying he would never copy Popcaan
or any artists. “Alkaline on a different level from everyone and that is
the truth about this music and some Jamaica people they are so
fool,” one fan wrote. “Alkaline do everything in is own way to please
his self and the vendetta families who show him love in everything
that he do in music.”
Some fans are saying that there are more similarities between “Hard
Tackle” and an old Mavado song “Gun Battle” than with Popcaan
“Nah Idle.” In fact, Popcaan was widely criticized by Vendetta fans
last year for stealing Alkaline’s “New Level Unlocked.” Listen to the
two songs below and make your own judgment.
Popcaan sends a clear message to his enemies in his new single
“Nuh Bwoy Can’t Box.”
The Unruly Boss dropped the new gangsta anthem last night and
took a moment to show off his pricey jewelry collection. The gritty
single is featured on the Panic Riddim, produced by JAM 2 Records
and DRE Swade. “If bwoy diss me in a day mi naan go kill them
night / Same place deso him a loose him life / Bombohole head
buss off like a f**king sprite, unruly / No pu**y cyan diss mi pon
god earth, no / Unless me bloodclat hand naan work / Mi guns and
mi killy them alert,” Popcaan spits.
Popcaan also took the opportunity to show off his expensive
watches and chains including a massive Unruly chain. Poppy has
been having a great year and has a chance to make history at next
month’s MOBO Awards in the UK if wins. The “Party Shot” deejay is
going up against artists like Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Aidonia,
Chronixx, and his arch nemesis Alkaline. Popcaan won the MOBO
award for Best Reggae Act for the past two years and this year
could be his third straight year.
Vybz Kartel was not among the five names nominated for the 2017
MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act and his are furious.
The list of nominees for the 2017 Music Of Black Origin (MOBO)
Awards for Best Reggae Act came out last week and all five
nominees are local Jamaican artists. Popcaan, Alkaline, Aidonia,
Chronixx, and Damian Marley are the five nominees this year. A lot
of dancehall fans are again questioning why Vybz Kartel was
snubbed despite having a massive year last year which continues
into this year.
“The system trying to fight against the boss [Vybz Kartel] but they
can’t stop him,” one fan wrote. “Kartel had a bigger year than
Popcaan, Aidonia, and Alkaline and yet he was not nominated for a
MOBO are you kidding me. This is utter nonsense and that’s why
people can’t take these awards serious anymore.”
Fans echoed some similar sentiments last year when the deejay was
not nominated. There is an underlining reason why Vybz Kartel may
not get a MOBO nomination, at least as long as he is behind bars he
may never get a nomination per the rules of the award show.
Additionally, MOBO is based in the UK where most radio stations are
barred from playing songs from convicted felons who are serving
time behind bars like Vybz Kartel who is doing life for a murder
One fan criticized those fans who are angry at Kartel’s MOBO snub
while drawing reference to his album sales numbers last year. “Don’t
make music fool you prison is taking a hold on Vybz Kartel Now you
cannot be in prison for murder and get the mobo award and apart
from that he’s not doing any live performance 3249 in 15 weeks
sales for the top dancehall artists of 2016 that’s a shame on
dancehall and Vybz Kartel the great Shabba Ranks used to sell
millions and Beenie Man gaza fans please don’t even brag about it
on YouTube 3249 copies that’s a shame on Kartel?” Joel wrote.
Despite being incarcerated since 2011, he has remained in the top
echelon of dancehall with a consistent supply of new music. Last
year, he came under investigation under orders directly from the
Ministry of National Security for allegations that he has been
recording music in prison, something that would be illegal and could
potentially send him into solitary confinement. Nevertheless, new
music continues to pour out of Vybz Kartel coffers like hot bread and
he is showing no signs of slowing down.
Vybz Kartel is far from being done dropping new music. The aced
dancehall star will be dropping a new song “All Aboard” this Friday.
Kartel has been dropping around two songs a week since around the
end of August and he is showing no signs of slowing down. Our
Gaza sources told us that a major project is on the way but in the
meantime, fans can enjoy a regular supply of new singles. “We are
working on a big project, some big, much bigger than any previous
album Worl’Boss release,” sources said. “Look out for a new banger
this Friday on premiere on Irie FM.”
The incarcerated deejay also announced the new single “All Aboard”
on his Instagram page. The track was produced by TJ Records, who
is also the producer behind his new project. The track will be
premiered by DJ Wayne on Irie FM on Friday afternoon. “LISTEN
NOW.. You either ON the boat with the ballers n b**ches… or you
UNder the boat with the sharks n fishes! #Dj Wayne premier this
Friday on #IRIEFM ALL ABOARD ALL ABOARD,” Vybz Kartel wrote.
Kartel currently has two of the hottest songs in dancehall, with
“Mhm Hm” and “Don’t Come Back” racking up the views on
YouTube. The song “ Mhm Hm ” has already amassed three million
views in three weeks, clocking around a million a week.
