Hey Mavado, how’s it going? All good? How’s that Khaled thing working? Good? Better now that he’s let you just cook up Dancehall bangers and not toss you onto NY hip hop songs? What’s that you have three massive summer hits that will run the dance? And this is one of them? Good for you!

Stadic is the producer behind some of last year’s big tunes including Fay Ann’s Raze and Town Thing Riddm. In true world carnival style his new project sees soca and dancehall artists working together in a genre they are calling “afro soca”. Mavado and Fay Ann’s offering has some great elements but our favourite of the two cuts on this project has to be She Bad by Suit of Black which sees Assasin, Bunji Garlin and Kardinal Offishal working together and smashing it. Stream the tunes above.
Mavado is back with a smokers anthem. The best line is “Me have a medical card but cyan see me in a coat”

Wonder who this is about? Dancehall is currently in war mode with everyone not on the best of terms. Shit even Busy is stepping up to the plate to defend Bounty’s honour. This cut on the Gwaan Bad riddim, probably battling Boombox for riddim of the year, is incredibly strong and shows people that Mavado hasn’t lost it. You should also check out Lady Saw’s cut on this riddim.
