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!
As we mentioned in our last post we are preparing for the festive season by posting some of this year’s Christmas tunes. Trust the Energy God to come up with this year’s dancehall offering that has more Christmas treats than a selection box! Elephant Man’s heavily auto-tuned interpolation’s of Silent Night, Oh Holy Night and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer are teamed with dancehall stabs and broken by Elephant Man’s fast chat flow – don’t expect to hear this version in church this Christmas but you may hear it at HDD House Party Christmas Special this Saturday!.
Although Lady Saw’s Sidung is confusingly similar to her hit Backshot with Spragga Benz, its a heavy hitting dancehall tune with the Energy God featuring on guest vocals. We especially love how Ele is posing as an EHL worker delivering riddims to the Muma Saw in the video for the clean version of the tune. In one of the realest interviews out there Marion chats to Entertainment Report about why she’s back in studio after baby breaks and stress breaks and how she stays relevant without saying swag. She also states that dancehall is definitely not dead on the female side and despite her love for Cham’s wife O, Tifa and Spice nobody can fill her shoes.
We all love a good cartoon, especially in dancehall culture, whether it be the political cartoons of Clovis or the Dutty Bwoy animated series. For the massive Massive B’s Riot Squad riddim Medley video, Jamtoonz made a fun and funny medley video featuring all the biggest names including Elephant Man, Ding Dong and Vybz Kartel ( current physical state taken into account). It’s a smart video for a riddim that has big stars on and would have been almost impossible to film in real life. It’s the little details in this video that make it special such as Future Fambo’s hairline or Popcaan’s fixed expression.
Survivor, produced by Di Genius, sees Bounty Killer and Elephant Man give thanks for being survivors. The highlight of this humourous video is watching Elephant Man dealing with being stranded at sea on his jetski. The interplay between the two makes me wish that they actually concentrated on doing a joint lp (EP, in these current times ill take that instead).We all wait for the inevitable Ity and Fancy Cat parody.
