When it comes down to it, the game of emcees will not and is not made for every living soul out here. Any class of elites that exists does not need to prove that they are elite, they just are. #PayAttention boasts of being Jamaica’s premier Hip-Hop event, where is the contention? If you ask me, those bragging rights are fully legit and unchallenged.

Laron, CEO/Founder of Deadline Promotions, has few words but is a major player to know.

Q: Deadline Sound has been working closely with #PayAttention since it’s inception. What has the experience been like carrying Jamaica’s largest Hip-Hop movement?

A: It has been a great experience and a great journey with the 1st Coast Massive. Deadline Sound represents for music and especially if that music comes from our own island shores. I have seen the #PayAttention movement grow and it continues to grow. I can only say: we are privileged to be apart of the movement!

“International expansion was in our plans from day one” – @Inztinkz

Less than a week away, #PayAttention patrons should expect a fully revamped show kick-started by a complete change of venue. Often times big changes like this can mean detrimental losses, however, the show subtly made their maneuvers and are once again back at it hosting Kingston’s premier Hip-Hop event. The only way forward is up, in my humble opinion.

Producer Inztinkz is ready to show me what the new setup is all about

Q: I’d call you the technical audio director of #PayAttention; a long-standing organizer of the show. Briefly update me about the progression #PayAttention has been going through lately.

A: Lately, #PayAttention has been going through a lot; we recently decided to change venues.  The next staging of #PayAttention on March 28th will be held at our new venue Club Eutopia in New Kingston. We decided to try out a different vibe, open our doors to performers outside of Kingston that we have always wanted to feature.  Look out for continued progress from #PayAttention as we continue to achieve goals and shatter perceptions.

I make rebellious raw music that real people can feel. – @YoungIgnorance
Expression comes in various forms. For us, #PayAttention seeks to bring to the forefront what many fail to see on a day-to-day basis. No! I am not saying that you should be tuned in 24/7/365. But when we sound that gong & set charges to that stage, you’re going to seriously wish that you hadn’t waited to get involved. Enough programming, I’m looking forward to seeing you at Eutopia on March 28th.

Scotty + The Dreamkillers has much to say.

Q
I been following you around on Soundcloud for many moons, it’s great to finally get a chance to see you make a display on the #PayAttention stage. Are you amped?
A: Much respect bro! Trust me I’ve been working so hard and I’m ready to kill the stage so I am definitely amped for March 28!
[Sidenote: Vote for my bro Five Steez in ‘Take Back the Mic’ on Amp.it… shameless plug!]

NEW MUSIC: @GullyCash – Kingston 20 Freestyle


GullyCash

Repping where he’s from today is Rapper Gully Cash with a new freestyle. Over the Wu Tang Clan’s “Ice Cream” beat comes “Kingston 20“. Here he gave an idea of his day to day life, rules he abides by in his neighbourhood, showing respect to his crew and the “Gs” while effortlessly flowing over the old school production. Gully Cash has been staying busy since his last performance at Pay Attention and he may have another full project in the works. Stay tuned. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon

Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.

VinDon of BluRok is present.

Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance

A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.

Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?
