“It is time for us to push the creative boundaries and let our masterpieces speak loudly for itself in someĀ classic, timeless, agelessĀ manner.”


Jamaica is home to a musical culture that’s quite diverse in nature as displayed at the #PayAttention concert series. Regular patrons should know that after a short hiatus the show will be back on Saturday, January 31 at C&C South Beach, 2 Brompton Road.
Pay Attention - January 31 (Back)Rseenal is ready to perform a Hip-Hop laced set & he explains why as we caught up with him to ask about his 2015 plans.

Q: You’re a #PayAttention veteran, how exactly does it feel to be hitting the stage after the short break?Ā [July 19th being the last staging of the show]
A: For the opening act after the break, to hitĀ THATĀ stage means to set theĀ precedence: upholding the highest standard all others must follow hereafter. This is a great task.. rather, a noble task in the local Jamaican Hip-Hop community, that must reassure the rest of the world of Jamaica’s Rap relevance. It is a worthy force to be reckoned with because theĀ First CoastĀ movement is fully active and greater is yet to come!
