DJ LYTMAS on a roll at UnrulyKash

UNRULYKASH, the annual dj stage show
promoted by Dapstrem Entertainment media station Dapstrem Tv , felt the effects of
dancehall music by DJ LYTMAS recently.
On his maiden performance at the event, DJ LYTMAS delivered a
performance worthy of mention.
“It was a great vibe. The atmosphere was tremendous,” said
The Kenyan dj reeled off an impressive jam riddled
with various dancehall hits that featured major top musical artist.
While at UnrulKash, DJ LYTMAS hung out with a few  of his celebrities signed into His Record Label,
including Dancehall singer Dabby K,Fross Stinger and Lydia Wabs who are featured on the mixtape of
Dapstrem Vol 1.

The dj is enjoying success with Front of the Line , a mixtape featuring Jamaican Sound System Company which is currently the soundtrack for Jamaican beauty campaign by JusticeMan Sounds.

The DJ also says he is also on the new Dabby K Album Gal Government , which
is currently under production.
“It feels good to have your artists song featured in a major radio stations and getting in
advertising campaign in the US. More positive moves for myself and
Dapstrem Entertainment members.,” said DJ LYTMAS.
He explained how the collaboration between Dabby K and Prince J came about.

Listen to the song below.


“Between Prince J and our Dapstrem management team, the move was made.
I was in Naivasha and stopped by  studio and that was one
of the tracks laid.,”
said The Dangerspin master.


DJ Lytmas celebrates hundred thousand downloads in one week.

DJ Lytmas is dominating the Google Search with his latest 2018 mixtapes. The mixtape downloads is a clear departure from his gritty bangers and
appears to have struck a chord with the listening public.

“Sometimes it’s great to have some amount of introspection. The song mixtapes industry is about Entertainment but it also mirrors the experience of many others
who come from challenging circumstances and think can’t make it . That’s why it tek off,” said Lytmas.
The Rap Gang Mixtape , released on the Dapstrem Entertainment  label on April 2018, has racked up nearly 50,000 downloads in two weeks on his official Website .
DJ Lytmas’ rise as a dancehall deejay has been steady and consistent
so much so that fellow Entertainers and musicians are now banking on him to help in promoting their music and using their arts to entertain the masses. He scored a huge number one google search last year with “Alkaline Mixtape”
He collaborated on several Products on the east coast of the United States.
“My favourite mixtape was in Bashment Time Riddim and World Vibes Riddim because of the good reputation it brought me and the fans and the whole vibe, it was really great,” he said.
He is taking on a new business venture with his endorsement of a new label “Zara Pro”
“The label production is doing well, it is being distributed by Dapstrem Entertainment my own label and their music demand is building. It is for
the masses, so everyone will be able to stream. You done know is
a Dapstrem move,” he said.

Vybz Kartel, Alkaline, Mavado, Popcaan, Aidonia On Same Riddim ?

Imagine Vybz Kartel, Alkaline, Mavado, Popcaan, and Aidonia on the
same riddim?
That is exactly what’s about to happen if some new promo by So
Unique Records. Elvis Redwood posted a artwork for his upcoming
riddim due out on April 6th that will feature the five top artists in
dancehall currently. This development comes nearly a year after the
infamous debacle between Elvis Redwood and Vybz Kartel over the
“Loodi” collaboration with Shenseea. The incarcerated deejay was
quite upset with the producer over rumors that he wasn’t properly
paid and credited for the success of the single.
Nevertheless, the So Unique head released a video clearing up many
of the rumors while making it clear that Kartel was paid and he sold
the rights to the single to VP. Elvis is now getting ready to drop not
just another Kartel single, but also tracks from Alkaline, Popcaan ,
Aidonia , and Mavado . A lot of dancehall enemies and a lot of
dancehall talent on the same production. That don’t usually happen
in dancehall these days since most artists and producers are locked
in their respective factions and usually don’t work with each other
across the aisle.

Drake Fuels More Rumors About Buying Popcaan The Drop-Top Range

Drake has reignited rumors that he bought Popcaan his drop-top Range Rover Evoque.

In 2016, Popcaan created a shift in the industry by becoming the first dancehall artist to drive a convertible Range Rover. Rumors immediately began swirling that Drake was the one who bought the luxury SUV for the Unruly Boss. The car became a talking point for Popcaan’s critics including Alkaline who made references to it in his infamous “Microwave” diss track.

Popcaan posted a video on Instagram of himself inside the range and Drake left a comment on the clip which reads, “El Chapo and RangeDrop deyah.” Some dancehall fans started trolling both artists in the comment section.


“Popcaan man Drizzy a comment bout the Range him buy the Unruly Boss lol,” one fan wrote while another added, “Them two man ya move funny from when and now we know for sure that Drake buy Popcaan the drop top Range him a drive up and down over Portmore.”

On a side note, Drake has yet to put Popcaan on one of his albums and he is currently working on a major project so perhaps we should petition for a proper Popcaan feature on Drizzy’s new project.

Stream: Konshens Drops Sophomore Album “It Feel Good”

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.



Is Safaree Samuels Dating Juju?

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
mess pls!”
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.

Vybz Kartel Give’s Popcaan A Huge Shout-out On Instagram.

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.

#freeWorldboss Vybz Kartel Prison Visits At GP Suspended.

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 Now Says Seani B

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 Says He Makes 5 Songs Per Week Talks Spice & Legacy In Dancehall

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 Waiting On Vybz Kartel Appeal To Weigh His Options

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.
