Pay Attention - January 31 (Back)

It’s that time again to PAY ATTENTION and recently KLAS Lifestyle got a chance to Interview some of the players in the Pay Attention series. Hosted by Garth Williams, Rappers The Sickest Drama (TSD) and Rseenal were featured guests. Here they spoke about Jamaican Hip Hop and how the culture differs from their American counterparts, Jamaica opening up to accommodate the movement, the Pay Attention event and artists making strides to carry the culture across the globe. A good listen here and for those who aren’t familiar, head out to the C&C South Beach (South Beach Cafe) on January 31 and witness the movement in all its glory. Check out the Interview below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

“It is time for us to push the creative boundaries and let our masterpieces speak loudly for itself in someĀ classic, timeless, agelessĀ manner.”


Jamaica is home to a musical culture that’s quite diverse in nature as displayed at the #PayAttention concert series. Regular patrons should know that after a short hiatus the show will be back on Saturday, January 31 at C&C South Beach, 2 Brompton Road.
Pay Attention - January 31 (Back)Rseenal is ready to perform a Hip-Hop laced set & he explains why as we caught up with him to ask about his 2015 plans.

Q: You’re a #PayAttention veteran, how exactly does it feel to be hitting the stage after the short break?Ā [July 19th being the last staging of the show]
A: For the opening act after the break, to hitĀ THATĀ stage means to set theĀ precedence: upholding the highest standard all others must follow hereafter. This is a great task.. rather, a noble task in the local Jamaican Hip-Hop community, that must reassure the rest of the world of Jamaica’s Rap relevance. It is a worthy force to be reckoned with because theĀ First CoastĀ movement is fully active and greater is yet to come!

PRESS RELEASE: Why Is @DelusDJ Afraid To Love Again?

Standard

Delus (2)

Recording artiste Delus has been receiving a lot ofĀ support for his single ā€˜Afraid to Love Againā€™. The single has also sparked much debate onĀ social media from his fans about his personal life. ā€˜Afraid to Love Againā€™ speaks about his heartĀ breaks and relationships and shows a more vulnerable side of the artiste.

He shared ā€œthe inspiration for this song was based on true events in my life. Most people whoĀ have been in relationships and break up because of infidelity can relate to this songā€. The single,Ā produced by World Union on the ā€˜Four Seasons Riddimā€™, came after the success of ā€˜AnotherĀ Galā€™ which was released in January of 2011. ā€˜Another Galā€™ also spoke about infidelity inĀ relationships but, if you follow the storyline carefully Delus released another single entitled ā€˜MiĀ Find Herā€™ in December of the same year; now he is afraid to love again!

The Subkonshus signed artiste has since released ā€˜Love Hates Youā€™ produced by Broxton MusicĀ and let us not forget the popular ā€˜Gallis (From Birth)ā€™ single by Blaqk Sheep. When asked aboutĀ his present relationship status and the releases of these story telling singles he had this to say,Ā ā€œI honestly had not planned that these songs be released in any particular order; I guess itā€™s justĀ musical destiny. As for my relationship status, I am sure my music will give you updatesā€.

Delus is set to release his EP in March 2015 and possibly the lady interest influencing the lyricsĀ behind his singles.
