This goes out to all the lovers out there courtesy of Earthquake Int’l Sound. Dropping part 2 in their “Raggamuffin Love” series, we hear great Lovers’ Rock selections that will surely have couples slow dancing the weekend away. If there’s a “bun in the oven” a few weeks later, blame the music (lol). Featuring Morgan Heritage, NoMaddz, Mr. Vegas, L.U.S.T. and more, check out the mix below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
From being a big star back in the day, to influencing in Dancehall, to now dealing with a beef with Mr. Vegas, Red Rat has a lot on his plate and Onstage gave him the hot seat to speak on it and more. Here he spoke on the feud, his “beef” with Winford Williams, new music including a new EP in the works, wearing many hats in the music business, introducing his artist Pascalle, and more. Good to see Red Rat still making moves. I do wish he and Vegas can put the beef aside and make hits together. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today, our Island sees 53 years of Independence and showing love to his home is Singjay Wayne J. Accompanied with his family, they sing a medley of songs including Mr. Vegas’ “Sweet Jamaica”, Tony Rebel’s “Sweet Jamdown”, Everton Blender’s “Lift Up Your Head” and more. A lovely string of tributes from the young ones. Happy Independence Day! Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Dropping on August 8…
Joining the set of Irie FM’s “What’s The Scoop” this week are Mr. Vegas and Latty J. Hosted by K’Shema and Lady Rennae, Vegas went through many of his hits before introducing Latty J and have her perform a few songs. A very entertaining segment this week as Mr. Vegas is a Dancehall veteran with many singles stashed. As he said, Latty J is one of the baddest new acts to emerge on the scene.

On Sunday, March 29th Saint Lucian-American organization, Zandoli International Foundation met with NGO, Leave Out Violence in Saint Vincent (LOVNSVG) to partner with Jamaican reggae artist, Mr. Vegas and his foundation, Jamaica Men Against Rape (JMAR).
The meeting resulted in a strategic partnership with Mr. Vegas and his organization aboard the Caribbean Committee Against Sex Crimes. CCASC is a collective of Caribbean organizations representing countries throughout CARICOM and OECS that are asking for the establishment of local and regional sex offender registries.
Mr. Vegas is well known for his social media advocacy and viral videos speaking out against child abuse and sexual assault. The Jamaican entertainer is committed to participating in the CCASC’s request for a regional registry and a publicizing of Jamaica’s already established registry.
With a Facebook following of close to 700,000 fans, Zandoli and LOVNSVG are confident that Mr. Vegas and his foundation’s involvement will serve to expand on their child molestation prevention initiatives and call on a greater participation from West Indians in the diaspora.
