“It.. just.. It was fate, it had to happen” – @iAmVinDon
Do you disdain Jamaica? How do you feel about Hip-Hop generally? I’d cleverly advise you to close your browser if you come across this page not willing to #PayAttention. Eutopia is the place to be March 28th & even though the event is Kingston-based, i’m about to prove that some of the island’s most talented rappers do not solely only originate from the nation’s capital.
VinDon of BluRok is present.
Q: Welcome to the #PayAttention line up! You ready to hit the stage and deliver a killer performance
A: Respect! No doubt, it’s what I do.
Bonus: I caught wind that you’re the son of Ninja Man, can you confirm this?
Kingston, Jamaica’s premier Hip Hop party and artiste showcase series, Pay Attention, is set to take things up a notch with its next staging on Saturday, March 28, at its new venue – Eutopia, above Burger King, on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston.
This upcoming staging of Pay Attention will be its 18th since its inception in April 2012. “We’re all grown up now,” says host and organiser, TSD. “We’ve entered into a marriage with Eutopia because they respect our vision and have the ideal venue for our audience.”
Among the improvements noted by TSD are increased space, more reasonably priced drinks and a dedicated smokers’ deck. As per usual, recorded music will be played by Inztinkz and Deadline Sound, while the featured performers are Koro Fyah, Vindon, Imije and Scotty & The Dreamkillers.
Admission is $1,000 at the gate, while presold tickets are $600. Ladies will be granted 2-for-1 entry until showtime at 10:30 p.m and gates open at 9 p.m.

Playing on the word KA$HFLW, aside from the cliché, it directly creates a call to action for Kash Kapri who actually leaves room for Imije to have his own distinct flow on the track. It’s quite obvious that the artistes never really parted ways because they complement each other well (hook).
Personally, I believe the bass on the track could be tweaked in addition to having the sonics turned up for my preference (I’d add it to my vehicle turn up playlist at that point lol). Gaz beats did a good job producing/mixing, my question is was there mastering done and if so, who did it? There is a level of evolution to be seen here overall. The track cover is dope; if nothing about your music is good, the one thing that can be used to speak otherwise is PROPER PACKAGING. Flow on point, lyrics on point. 876 Hip-Hop never disappoints.
