Gage Calls Out Politicians On “Creed 4”


Recording Artist Gage has never been one to hold his tongue. No matter the topic of his songs, he speaks his mind, and you have to deal with it. Recently, he released the “Barcode Mixtape” with The Riddim Nation, and he had a lot to talk about. On one of the tracks, he hits where it hurts on “Creed 4“.

With The Riddim Nation handling production, Gage calls out the Jamaican Government and shifty Politicians. Looking back at the events during and after Election 2020, Gage exposes the opportunists, highlights the reality many Jamaicans are facing regardless of who is in power, and becomes the speaker of the Jamaican public for a few minutes. It’s not about who had the best campaign Dubplate or who rocked Clarks, it’s what the elected will do for the people who went out and voted for better. Many are not fazed by the gimmicks, they need real work to be done. Take a listen to Gage’s message.

Going Down: Songs With Taboo Lyrics In Dancehall


Recently, a certain Artist opened a can of worms with a rather “spicy” single. While folks are in a uproar about it, we’ve heard it all before. The Dancehall culture has had a stance on certain sexual practices for years, but with more people having an open mind, some Artists tend to stir the pot by adding taboo themes in their singles. Here are a few that sparked the conversation.

1. Sycamore Tree – Lady Saw (1996)

In a year when the “Joyride Riddim” was taking over airwaves, the Dancehall Artist born Marion Hall used her platform to chase away men who wanted oral “favors” on “Sycamore Tree”. At the time, a woman who was known to do such things were often chastised, even from the recipients. Things have changed in 20 years…Do you remember?

2. Tanya Stephens – Freaky Type (1998)

Before your favourite Artist did it, Tanya was not afraid to put a spotlight on it. If you “burned” it out in public, but did it in the dark, you may not have liked this song. To Tanya it was always the ones most vocal against it were the “professionals”. Over a Baddis Production, she sure liked the “Freaky Type”.

After causing quite some controversy last year, what does 2015 have in store for Alkaline? Tonight on Onstage he spoke on being public enemy #1, his absence from Sting 2014, focusing on his career and claiming to being above many of his musical peers, avoiding clashes, “Vendetta“, his performance at Reggae Sumfest 2014, his new look, his debut appearance in the US and more music. Despite being a target in Dancehall, Alkaline continued to make a name for himself worldwide. You can’t help but respect that. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

In the early morning of Sting 2014, two of the most anticipated clashes happened with Black Ryno vs Kiprich and Tommy Lee Sparta vs Gage. With some delays things kicked off with Tommy Lee Sparta vs Gage with Ryno joining in. Following this was Black Ryno vs Kiprich which went on for a while till it got physical and abruptly ended the Dancehall/Reggae event. Good to see that Tommy Lee and Gage didn’t get physical but I was disappointed in the Ryno/Kiprich altercation. More performances to come. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

In the wake of this “Sting Season“, the news of Masicka parting ways with Konshens raised questions and of course choice words. Tonight Masicka aims to clear the air on the split and more with Winford Williams. Here he spoke on the events leading up to the split and not dissing Konshens, his “Loyalty” track, Sting 2014 and his willingness to clash with any artist, his feud with Demarco, his thoughts on Alkaline and Gage, and upcoming performances. Not a bad Interview, Masicka said a lot here and I’m looking forward to his gig at Sting and just maybe a little clash with Demarco.
