It’s Time For @Bawse_Dawg To “ELEV8” With New Album

It’s been a long time coming, but Dancehall/Reggae Artist Bling Dawg is finally taking his career to the next level. Breaking out in the early 2000s armed with a aggressive raspy flow and a commanding presence, Bling Dawg had everyone saying, “If anuh me a who” and “A Ricky Rudie! A.k.a. Bling Dawg!“. While he has a respectable amount of hit singles to his name, he never gave his fans an album. After a few transformations in his personal life and career, Bling Dawg’s vision is clearer than ever. Today, Bling Dawg releases his album, “ELEV8“.

Featuring 19 tracks, “ELEV8” is released through US/Guyana based label Creative Titans. The album finds Bling Dawg on a journey to expand his mindset, deliver music with a message, and still show that even after 20+ years, he still can make great music. This is Bling Dawg’s world, and he shares his perspective on various topics, provides some consciousness when we need it, tackles every production thrown his way, and stays sharp on every line. When you have sounds from Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Dawg House Productions, Baby G, Ferdinand “Young Boy” Maynard Jr., Bobby Digital, Dameon Gayle, Bulby York, and Starplayer Music Group are on board, you’re in for something special. Bling’s not alone on “ELEV8” as he brings along friends like Popcaan, Christopher Martin, Tanya Stephens, Romain Virgo, Morgan Heritage, Bounty Killa, and Busy Signal for this new uplifting journey. “ELEV8” is a solid release from an Artist who despite the odds, emerged more focused than ever, never chased trends, and showed that his work is not done. It’s time for something new.

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!

If Anuh Me A Who? A Ricky Rudie! A.k.a. BLING DAWG!
