OLDIES SUNDAY: @Bawse_Dawg – Bling Dawg (2000)


On Oldies Sunday, we highlight some of the greats, and many underdogs in Caribbean music. For today’s selection, we highlight one of the underrated Deejays in Dancehall. He goes by the name Ricky Rudie, a.k.a. Bling Dawg with the track titled, “Bling Dawg”.

Produced by Patrick Roberts on the “Scarface Riddim“, “Bling Dawg” was released through the Shocking Vibes Label in 2000. This track was presented as an introduction to the Artist then known as Ricky Rudie. Bling Dawg would showcase a great flow, witty lyrics which included the line, “If yuh nuh like Bling Dawg, gwaan go suck an egg…“, and a catchy hook. “Bling Dawg” became an instant hit for the Deejay, and found itself on a few music charts in Jamaica, and in parts of the Caribbean and the rest of the world. The music video for the single (directed by “Big Daddy Leo” O’Reggio) quickly brought Bling Dawg to more people as the video would feature a few familiar faces including Bounty Killa, who would make him a member of the Dancehall collective, The Alliance.

Bling Dawg went on to release more music over the years, adopting more to the “Bling Dawg” moniker. He would have a few more hits, popularize a few dances (Zip It Up, Kreech, Aji Bounce), got caught up in a musical beef, transitioned to more conscious music, and became a Fitness Guru in the process. He is currently gearing up for the release of his long awaited album, “Elev8” in February. Boom blast!
