We Highlight Some Of The Dancehall Artists Who Have Defined The 2010s!


December 31, 2019 marks the last day of the 2010s, and January 1, 2020 will mark the first day of a new decade. It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times, but today we look back at some of Dancehall Artists who have made an impact on the scene. With so many hits and moments, we know lists and faves will vary. Before we start, we want to thank everyone who has given our Blog and Social Media a chance since 2012. We’ve featured so many and have assisted in the careers of plenty, we look forward to doing even more in 2020, and beyond. Let’s get started with our lengthy list.

(Editor’s Note: Everyone’s list is different, so if you have a problem with this one…make your own!)

Vybz Kartel

I mean, what’s a list without the “World Boss“? A man who continued to add fuel to the fire of his musical career, long after making his debut in the early 2000s. With his entrepreneurial side blooming with a Shoe line, Liquor line, Nightclub, Merch, to even Condoms, Vybz was everywhere. He even had a Reality TV series, and kept up with quite a bit of controversy too. Despite him being thrown behind bars in 2011 and facing 35 years soon after, it didn’t stop him from recording music, and releasing singles and albums up to this day. Remember his “Freaky Girl” saga? We know you all have a few Kartel tracks in rotation.

Spice

Spice is also an Artist you can’t deny when it comes to this list as well. Spice held it down for the ladies, and showed the men that she can handle her own. With so many bookings, i’m surprised there isn’t a row or an Airline named after her yet. Spice kept the hits coming, and flexed her entrepreneurial muscle as well with her “Spicey Couture” store which started growing since opening in 2009. With the help of Social Media, Spice’s brand got bigger, and took a major turn in 2018 when she was made a cast member on the popular VH1 Reality TV series, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta”. Spice welcomed her share of controversy as well which included relationship issues, and the topic of Colorism. With her career starting in the early 2000s, she kept the fire going like her “World Boss” colleague, and got crowned Queen in the process.

We Salute @Aidonia4thGenna’s Career In Our Latest Playlist!


If you have heard “J.O.P.!“, “Bushkash Bushkash“, “So Sick…“, “1 Voice…“, “Bad people, move move move…” and “Start di Helicopter…” at some point your Dancehall music listening sessions, then you have experienced some of Dancehall Artist Aidonia’s great works! The man born Sheldon Aitana Lawrence, has been a mainstay since his ascent onto the scene in the early 2000s. If you were looking for lyricism, a voice that commanded attention, and something new, Aidonia was one of the few who checked all three over the years and had hits to boot.

Today’s post pays tribute to the man who had folks saying “J.O.P.” over the wildly popular “Gaza” and “Gully” with the easily recognized hand sign. With our latest Playlist, we let you in on the works from “The 4th Genna Boss“! With over 6 hours of hits from bad man tunes to gal songs, the only ones didn’t make it aren’t available for streaming. With folks out here trying to discredit Aidonia’s contribution to Dancehall, you need people like to appreciate and recognize his works that weren’t in vain.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Triston Palmer – Joker Smoker (1980)


This one is for all those who have that one annoying friend (or a bunch of friends) who are just not about that Ganja life in every way. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the legendary Triston Palmer a.k.a. Tristan Palma with the track, “Joker Smoker“! Produced by Jah Thomas, this was released through the J&J label in 1980 with releases through other labels over the years. The song was also featured on Triston’s 1982 album of the same name. Throughout the track, Triston calls out those who love to be around the smokers and instead of respecting the space and culture, they became an irritation. Many can relate to this as there are those who cause money and Marijuana to be wasted, the loss of lighters and other paraphernalia, and tempers to flare up.

“Joker Smoker” became one of Triston Palmer’s most famous tracks, and has been sampled by the likes of Electronic Dance Artists Top Cat and DJ Solo, and by Dancehall Artist Aidonia who even borrowed the song’s title for his single. The song’s title continues to be used among those who are not about that Stoner life as well. Be wary of who you share your Weed with.

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @Aidonia4thGenna’s “Lord Of The Blings”


Before “JOP” became a team you wanted to be a part of, and before the “4th Genna“, there was Idonia otherwise known as Aidonia! In our 2nd issue of our new “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2004 to hear one of Aidonia’s early recorded singles, “Lord Of The Blings“. Produced by Rockcliffe (Rodcliffe) Pinnock for Orizen Entertainment, “Didi” gets into “flossing” mode as he speaks on living a lavish lifestyle, and calls himself the “Lord Of The Blings“. Since then, Aidonia has moved on to recording his first hit (“Lolly“) with “Skatta” Burrell, to being a member of Bounty Killa’s “The Alliance”, bringing his “JOP (Jag One Productions)” clique to the forefront, being respected as one of Jamaica’s top lyricists, feuding with a few Artists including Vybz Kartel, Munga, and Masicka, and of course making underground and mainstream hit songs. It’s Ai-di-di-di-DONIA! Stay tuned for another throwback next week.
