OLDIES SUNDAY: General B X Ghost – Mr. Boasy & Friend (1998)


Happy Sunday! Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is for those who like to show off, stunt, keep up appearances, and look down on people, but their priorities aren’t in order. The World is filled with them, but this man chose to call them out many years ago. His name is Dancehall Artist General B, and the track is called, “Mr. Boasy & Friend“.

Produced by Colin “Fatta” Walters on the “Top Shotta Riddim” and released through Colin Fat Records/VP Records in 1998, General B calls out those who always have the most money, have all the high end fashion, driving the latest vehicles, and who carry on like rich snobs. While some may say he is hating, the fact is those same people don’t have their priorities in order to the point where they don’t own anything outside of the fancy things, and one false move may find them homeless and flooded with bills causing embarrassment to themselves and their families. General B shares that he may not have the best of things at the time, but he is confident that at the end of the day, life is more in order than theirs. Fellow Dancehall Artist Ghost makes an appearance on the track by providing the chorus, and compliments General B’s deejaying well. “Mr. Boasy & Friend” was a hit for General B, and was one of many as he was a part of the legendary Monster Shack Crew with Ghost and Roundhead. The single was also featured on the group’s 1998 “Monster Party” album. General B is still active in the Dancehall circles, and has solidified himself as one of the contributors to some of the best years in Jamaican music.

THANK YOU GENERAL B!

OLDIES SUNDAY: @BujuOfficial – Me Too Bad (2005)


If you’ve been unaware, Reggae/Dancehall Icon Buju Banton is finally a free man! Having done his time in Federal Prison, Friday December 7 became a day to remember when word got out that he would be making his triumphant return to Jamaica, and return to freedom. Today on Oldies Sunday, we salute the Gargamel’s  return with one of our favourites, “Me Too Bad” (o/c “Too Bad)! Produced by Leftside & Esco on the “Throwback Giggy Riddim“, Buju effortlessly rides the riddim as he flexes his rather uncanny ability to drive the ladies crazy and requesting his presence ever so often. With lyrics like “Outta road, nuff gyal a mad ova me“, and “Mi Babymada seh mi bad, mi too bad…“, you know Buju has a way with the ladies. The single was released through VP Records and quickly became a hot track in the streets. It was also featured on his 2006 album, “Too Bad“, and became his first #1 hit in years. With Gargamel’s newfound freedom, many fans are awaiting his return to the booth to unleash the tracks that will have the place in a frenzy, but for now we wish he takes as much time to rejuvenate himself and reconnect with society and loved ones. If you want to check out more Buju content, check out our Buju Samples article we did on his Birthday, the throwback “Love Sponge” for the lovers, and Lila Ike wanting to work with Buju as he’s an inspiration in an Interview with us.

May D is from Nigeria and he has been doing his thing over there, so I felt we could join forces and drop something for the ladies! The Music Video has been doing well since its release, and we’re grateful for that” D-Feezy shared. D-Feezy is also working on his debut Album which should see a December 2017 release and its announcement very soon.
