@GrungGaadZilla: The Modern Day “Dancehall Daddy”!


In this post we pay tribute to the 5 Star General because…we have to give people flowers while they can still smell them. Bless up Bounty!

Words by KingDavidJWill x SwadeDaVillain

Rodney Price, more popularly known as Bounty Killa, could be easily called the “Godfather of Dancehall” or the “The Modern Day Dancehall Daddy” based on his musical family tree. His Alliance Music Group started out of Killa’s love for music, which in return gave some of the best Dancehall acts the world has ever seen, namely Busy Signal, Wayne Marshall, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Kiprich, Bling Dawg, and Aidonia. Outside of his group however, he also introduced us to many others including Spice, Twin of Twins, Cham, and Elephant Man (he was first discovered with his “Scare Dem Crew” members in the mid 90s). In 2011 Bounty made another addition by forming the Alliance Next Generation (A.N.G.) which gave us Iyara, Patexx, Marlon Binns, Kalado, Bridgez, Nymron, Assailant, K-Queens, Prince Pin, Dadda, Venon, Askel, Boom Steppa, 300 and many others. Bounty also lent his ear to Production labels like Pay Day Music, Echo One Productions, and DASECA Music (which is responsible for acts like Serani, Bugle, Dexta Daps, and Raine Seville). The list of names however, continues to grow.

@DonAndre Delivers Explosive @ReggaeSumfest Performance!


Reggae Sumfest Dancehall night was a success for fresh on the scene, hit maker, Don Andre. He celebrated the top Dancehall collaboration of the year alongside Ding Dong and Chi Ching Ching with a well-received high-energy performance. He also performed his new track Jog honoring Usain Bolt while flying the Jamaican flag high.

Later in the show Spice hurled insults at the fast-rising star. Don Andre is very displeased that she used his record in her set in an attempt to publicly insult his style and sexual preference. According to the artiste this is what happens with success, there is always someone who will try to bring you down.

“Anywhere there is success there is always a hater trying to stop it. Tom Cruise is in high rotation in several countries and the most popular Dancehall move right now. I just got an award from veteran sound system Stone Love to endorse that.

Spice needs to just leave me alone and work on getting an up to date number one song like, Tom Cruise. Her last number one was two years ago. Right now she’s working desperately in the streets for a song to hit like Tom Cruise.

Spice needs to find back her gear; she’s running out of steam. She should focus on her botched assets and figure out how she’s going to get them corrected and leave me out of her loose arguments,” Don Andre says.

Don Andre is billed to appear at Philadelphia Jerk Festival on August 28th in Fairmount Park.
