There comes a time in everyone’s life where they think about the things they do, and decide to move on from them to focus on bigger and better. The legendary Edley Shine (formerly of the infamous Born Jamericans) speaks on this and more in his latest single, “Big Mon Ting“.

Produced by Riddim Boss, “Da Big VoiceEdley Shine looks back at various things he has done over the years, and shares how much he has grown from them as he’s more about things and people who are very important to him. When he used to be with all the ladies, he now cares about the partner he is spending the rest of his life with. When he cared about being on the scene years ago, he’s now more about being in every aspect of his child’s life. Talk about maturity.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Sister Charmaine – No Disrespect (1990)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is dedicated to Dancehall Artist Sister Charmaine who passed away on January 5, 2021. Before the many prominent Queens of Dancehall, Sister Charmaine was one who held that title proudly. Today we go back in time to check out “No Disrespect“.

Released through Leggo Records in 1990, Sister Charmaine did plenty name dropping on this one as she shares the difficulty in catching a break in music. In a rather humorous way, she calls upon artists like Papa San, Admiral Bailey, General Trees, Little Lenny, Professor Nuts, Lt. Stitchie, Flourgon, Ninja Man, and many more for assistance in making her career as successful as theirs. From borrowing a Benz, to performing Obeah, to learning certain songs and moves, Sister Charmaine believes these were some of the methods her fellow artists used in getting a “buss“. The song was not made to disrespect the many artists mentioned, but to give her audience something to laugh about, and showcase her versatility. The song was featured on the “Live And Kickin’” compilation in 1990. A song we believed took a cue from “No Disrespect” was Ce’cile’s 2000 single, “Changez” where she called out male deejays, but for a rather different topic.

Walk Good Sister Charmaine!

Jamaican Creative Ma’neen enters 2021 in a big way. After giving people his debut “Nanny Bag Pt. 2” in 2019, he followed up with “Roots & Glam” before the end of 2020. His next move is definitely his best one yet as he unleashes “Nanny Bag Pt. 1” in the form of a Visual EP.

Directed by Ma’neen, Cesar Buelto, and Toni-Ann Davy, “Nanny Bag Pt. 1” follows the adventures of Ma’neen who lives in a parody universe where he’s quite the ladies man, a budding Musician, and a skillful Entrepreneur. When he’s not hustling, he’s making moves with the ladies, and in the 3 chapters to this experience, we see how he gets things done. The Visual EP plays on the themes, “The Hustle“, “Self Discovery“, and “Love and Loss“, and features the aforementioned “Roots & Glam” (which plays a big role in his hustle) and “Nanny Bag Pt. 2” along with “For Tonight“. The Visual features quite a few talented individuals and familiar faces, and promises to keep you well entertained from start to finish. We urge you check out this one.
