With the recent beefs making their rounds in the Dancehall circles, there are a few of us who wished things got to a point where the Artists involved could just settle it all with fists in a ring. Luckily for us, Comedian Kyng Tavii spared loss of lives, unnecessary injuries, and saved a bag of money on bills and Insurance with his latest skit. Here he re-imagines the beefs as WWE Wrestling matches complete with an excited audience. In the ring we have Mavado vs Popcaan, each with their ring side partners. Who will win this match?

The “World Boss” Vybz Kartel has never denied his role as a “Ladies Man“. From numerous lyrics showing off his escapades with them, to having a Reality Show where Women competed for his love in “Teacher’s Pet“, Kartel is definitely a “Gallis from birth“. Today he further proves it with his visual for “Colouring This Life“. Directed by WAM, while Kartel isn’t present in the video for obvious reasons, viewers can see a wonderful selection of beautiful ladies as they add eye candy to the single that has been burning the airwaves these past few months. From showing off their skin tones, Tattoos, beauty, to dance moves on the beach, it would be rather difficult to just pick one. Off Vybz Kartel’s “King Of The Dancehall” album, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Jamaica has made its way onto International Televisions once again thanks to Commercials. Recently, Cereal brand Cheerios released a series of Commercials with the focus on Family. One Commercial in particular focused on Babies and providing the soundtrack was Major Lazer (which featured only Diplo and former member Switch at the time), and Vybz Kartel’s 2009 hit, “Pon De Floor“! The Commercial featured various clips of Babies and the messages, “More Babies, Please” and “They’re Fun!” while the Instrumental to the single plays throughout. “Pon De Floor” helped to bring Vybz Kartel’s career to another level (and Financial bracket), and went on to be sampled on one of Recording Artist Beyonce’s biggest hits, “Who Run The World (Girls)“! The single was also featured on Major Lazer’s “Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do” album and opened the door for many remixes. Shout out Commercial Tunage!
