Fans Praise @QQWorld’s New Sound With His Latest Single


Fans have been adjusting to a smoother side of QQ with the recent release of “I Like It“. The single, produced by College Boiz Productions and QQ Music, is different from QQ’s more upbeat singles such as “One Drop“, “Jack Hammer” and “Kushi Wine” to name a few.

The Artist who has been absent from the Jamaican Dancehall scene for a while, has been performing on several major stages in the United States and Europe. “I want to show a different side to my music but whether i’m singing or deejaying, I am all about pleasing my female fans” shared QQ. The single is featured on the “Precious Seeds Riddim”, and has been receiving a favourable response from fans worldwide. The “One Drop” star is set to perform in Guyana in October, and Barcelona, Spain in November.

QQ has several new projects in the works, and is back in Jamaica to shoot music videos related to them. He added, “My last video was for “Kushi Wine”, but people still talk about my video for “Tweety Bird” directed by Strugu Films that was shot overseas”. “I Like It” is available for purchase on several digital platforms. QQ can be followed on Facebook.com/qquniverse, Instagram, and Twitter at @qqworld.

Jamaican Creative @Aurora_NG_U Hosts “Endz Off” Creative Mixer Event!


Update 1: “Endz Off” postponed until further notice!

The ability to create is such a beautiful thing, and the Island of Jamaica boasts a plethora of Creatives that help to elevate the Culture in Music, Fashion, Literature, and Art. Unfortunately, not many Creatives are being recognized as physical platforms for them to display their work are in short supply. Enter Kamoey Ng-You a.k.a. “GyalKapone“, a fellow Creative who hopes to make a change and start something new with her Creative Mixer event called, “Endz Off“! With a September 30th date and being held at Chaser’s Cafe (5 Belmont Rd., Kingston), Ng-You invites DJs, Writers, Musicians, Artists, Photographers, and Designers to attend and display their works of art to a new audience which can in turn create Business opportunities, make new connections, and growth in their careers.

When asked the reason for the event, Ng-You said, “I want to give all mediums a chance to just be comfortable in a non-competitive environment, because for young Artists in this Country, everything is a “Fight to the top”. While some competition is healthy, it’s not always the best because a lot of us suffer from issues that our Art gives us refuge from“. While the Event is free to attend and Creatives showcase their works for free, Ng-You hopes to get the attention and assistance of Corporate Jamaica, and encourages attendees to support by purchasing pieces from a Creative. “I’m trying to invite as much people to participate as possible, even if I have to pay for their work to be printed and mounted out of pocket because people need fi buss, and I’ll be damned if I don’t make that happen because I know I wish someone would help me” she added.

Creatives participating in the Mixer are requested to bring a copy of their favourite piece of work that they’re willing to part with as a giveaway session may arise during the event. “I want everyone to leave with someone else’s favorite artwork because that energy and positivity is channeled to others. Sharing the things that make you happy with someone else is one of the greatest things you could ever do and I want to promote that movement. I want everyone to have a smile on their face at the end of the day” said an exuberant Ng-You. She closed by saying, “It’s not about money, it’s not about hype, it’s not about a bagga chatting. It’s about giving everybody a platform to be themselves, be comfortable and make a future“.

The “Endz Off” Creative Mixer will start at 5PM, and ends at 8PM. To participate, contact Kamoey Ng-You at 848-2367, or send her a Direct Message on Instagram at @GyalKapone.

Dancehall Artist Sol Weatherman Goes Viral, Promotes “Handcart”


With several controversies surrounding Dancehall music videos, upcoming Dancehall Artist Sol Weatherman is now victim to a candid video gone viral. The video shows the Artist singing his recent single, “Handcart”, with what appears to be an M-16 Rifle in hand. More recently, another video surfaced with the Artist riding a donkey at the popular Street Dance “Wappingz Thursday”.

“Handcart” was produced by Krayv and Jay Crazie Records on the “Car Tire Riddim”, and is described by Sol Weatherman as a “Hustler’s Anthem”. “The video was simply me chilling in my community and during that someone recorded the video and posted it online. I don’t encourage violence, “Handcart” is a song for the Hustlers and hard working people, it is not a violent song”. When asked about the riding on the Donkey, Sol
added, “I believe in promoting my single to the fullest so the video was just another way to market the single for me”.

“Handcart” has been garnering much attention from the streets since its release. Sol added, “In many of the Street Dances you can witness girls pushing Handcarts and dancing. People all over the world love the gimmicks that come with the song, and I am grateful for that”. Sol Weatherman hails from Cockburn Gardens in Kingston, and is known for the singles, “Weatherman”, “Feel So Good”, and “Whine” to name a few. You can find him on Instagram at @SolWeatherman, and WeathermanSol on Facebook.
