The 2013 BET Awards were held last night in the US and in the adverts leading up to the event Chris Tucker did warn us that anything could happen! We weren’t expecting this dancehall medley with Bobby Konders on decks and Jabba on mic duties introducing Dawn Penn, Chaka Demus and Pliers, Beenie Man and Elephant Man running through some 90s classics. The way the Energy God came through the crowd and had everyone (especially Nicki Minaj) bussing a wine was something special!
Mainly posting this because of Beenie’s scally uniform in the video which he then wore in the club as you can see in these pictures from Kingston Style. Right now we are more used to hearing Sean Paul with whatever identikit pop star/group so it’s nice to hear him on some dancehall.
The only way to pretty much guarantee a post on this site is a medley video and finally after a couple of months we have one. This time it’s for last year’s Overtime riddim. Gyptian, Mavado, Christopher Martin, Popcaan, Beenie Man and more. It may be Island pop is but the video is fantastic, even if it is just a smooth blend of all the artist’s individual ones.
We love a good riddim medley video here at HDD HQ nearly as much as we love some of the faces that Beenie Man pulls in this video. Hustlas riddim has been around for a few weeks and the three cuts on the riddim from Lisa Hyper, Kantana and Beenie Man, and Jah Vinci are all strong. We especially like Jah Vinci’s Weezy impression.
The video for Beenie Man’s Hot Like Fire dropped last week and it is a visual treat! Its the second video to be released from the Loudspeaker Riddim package and like Popcaan’s The System video it was shot in Jamaica by Dayo. Check out some of our favourite video stills over on the HDD tumblr.
