♠ HOTTT New Dancehall! ♠ Gappy Ranks - Stinkin' Rich!


I hope you had a GREAT weekend filled
with music, music, music!

We have all fallen in Love with the voice
and vibes of UK hottie Mr. Gappy Ranks.
Although he's been performing for years,
most of us have come to know him for the
chune "Heaven In Her Eyes."
Since those days, Gappy has been recording
music that shows off his versatility. Not
only is he a balladeer, but he can also flip
it and perform hardcore Dancehall as well;
"Stinkin' Rich" is another example of that
Dancehall versatility.

Performed on a slight variation of the great
'Eighty-Five' riddim produced by Dave Kelly,
the title of the chune says it all, and the clever
word play confirms the message! Regardless
of what, we have to be stinkin rich!

Broadcasting at 320kbps, catch Gappy Ranks

Core DJ's Retreat!

The Core DJ's have announced details for
their next retreat which will be in Orlando
from May 7-10.  If you're a DJ, get on.  If
you're an artist GET ON!  If you're a music
industry executive (up and coming or otherwise)
you definitely need to get on!

Details below, and reports live on location
the days of...

Ky-Mani Marley's Story...

One thing we are never short of in the music
world, especially the Reggae and Dancehall 
fraternity is drama!

Ky-Mani Marley's new book, 'Dear Dad'
was drama filled after the artist shared some 
of the contents of his story with family members 
who were not too happy with how some things 
were presented.  By the time Ky had changes
ready, the book had gone to print causing a
rift between publisher, Ky-Mani and the Marley

Looks like they've been able to work things
out because the book tour has been announced
which sees Ky and the publisher in places like
Miami / Atlanta / Detroit / Cleveland / Los
Angeles and more!

Check the book here or see the ad below to buy 
your copy!

♠ HOTTT New Music! ♠ Bling Dawg - Father God Guide Me!

There is some 'bling' news coming out of the
Jukeboxxx Productions camp, and the
'bling' news is that Jukeboxx will be doing
some work with Dancehall DJ, Mr. Bling
Bling has been somewhat out of the spotlight
for a few minutes, but he's come back, and
come back hard - I'm talking God hard!
His newest chune "Father God Guide Me,"
was produced by the Star Player Music
Group, and has been endorsed by Shane Brown. 
Lyrically, DJ's who have heard the chune so
far are appreciating Bling's lyrics which go
like this:
Father God guide me / nah obeah me no buy /
when me testify / mih test dih money anno
lie / avoid me / just walk past dih I / Jah
will rescue me from ....
Speaking directly to his listeners, Bling gives
testimony of some of the things God has seen
him through and protected him from which are
things all listeners can relate to!
Broadcasting at 320kbps, catch Bling Dawg's
latest chune "Father God Guide Me" here:
P.S.  Bling will be doing some hardcore production
in the next few.  Lock in your dubplates and ting

Dancehall artist Charly Black.  We told you that
chicks can't keep their hands off the dude, and
what we say is true!

Charly crushed the crowd in Montreal, Canada,
the latest tour stop, and made the girls 'bubble 
inna trouble.'  Don't even ask what happened when
he performed the chune "Buddy Inna Pum Pum!"
If you want to know what happened with that 
chune, you'll have to see the pics.  Pay attention 
to pic #15 for the reaction shot to "Buddy!"

We got you covered here:

♠ HOTTT Music Re-Cap! ♠ Charly Black - Rich Dis Year Tour!

Charly Black is in North America promoting
his soon to be released album 'Rich Dis Year.'
So far, Charly has teased fans in Toronto with
a quick pass through, and gave a full performance
in Montreal last night (Big up Don and the entire
Little Thunder Family!).
The ladies have made it clear that Charly is their
DJ of choice.  I'm not gossiping, but I'm telling
you that getting Charly out of the venues have
been a challenge.  Ladies won't let him go.  Oh Boy!
Charly will have a day off from the performance
track, and will use that day to record dubplates;
looks like it will be Sunday.  To get your hands on
dubs, call Niyah at 416-206-9106, or e-mail

Baltimore, and Virginia Beach with Joe Swynger
from Crazy Love Sound.  More details to come!

Jah Cure Con Exposed!

It seems like not only the Hollywood Rich and
Famous are susceptible to people wanting to
scam and make money off their name.

According to Jah Cure's management team of 
Danger Zone Music Group, a promoter in Belize 
ordered dubplates (paid for them)  from the 
Universal Cure which didn't materialize.  The 
promoter became suspicious after not receiving
his dubs, and contacted DZMG who had no 
knowledge of monies exchanged for dubplates.  
Lawd!  The promoter is out money, and DZMG
has made it clear:  anything you need from Jah,
go through them!

The things people will do to profit off of the cure!

This and That for Friday March 19th, 2010!

Do you remember Raz B from the boy group
B2K?  Well, it seems the dude has gone from
'boy' to King as per his newest mixtape that
hit the streets today!

The mixtape is called 'Boy To King' and has
been co-signed (so we're told) by Raven Symone, 
Freeway Ricky Ross, Sway (MTV/Wake Up 
Show) & Josh Powell (L.A. Lakers).  Interesting!

The tape features appearances by Fizz, Boog
and Slim (of 112), plus a few more.  If you're in,
grab the mix here:  

Want more news about Raz B?!  It's 'hinted'
by his handlers that he has a new 'business partner'
who goes by the name Tila Tequila.  Maybe she
liked his 'package' that was exposed via the internet
about a year ago.  Hmmm....

Listen to the two of them get down on the chune
"Romeo" here:  Romeo

Charly to the B-L-A-C-K in Toronto!

Looky here looky here!  Eye spy with my little
eye, some fine piece of chocolate candy who
goes by the name Charly Black!

The former selector turned Dancehall DJ has
landed safe and sound in Toronto (despite all
the drama - more on that later), and was immediately
greeted at the airport by a hot honey in a beamer! 
L3's spies say they did the hotel check in, and 
re-emerged a few minutes later to hit one of the 

Charly is in North America from Jamaica as a 
part of his 'Rich Dis Year' tour.  Pics of Charly

♠ Boardhouse Records Presents ♠ Rihanna ft. Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco - Rude Boy!

Rihanna is out of order; either that, or she
doesn't know who a real rude boy is!  One
thing a woman never, ever, ever does when
dealing with a true rude boy (I'm talking an
authentic yard man rude boy) is to ask him
if he can get it up.  Wha?!!!
As if he's been provoked, Assassin, a.k.a.
Agent Sasco deals with Rihanna's case
wickedly on this "Rude Boy" remix. 
Produced by Boardhouse Records, the
music is stripped down focusing on the drum
pattern, as if to say 'I want you to hear me
clearly' when I say:  "man ah yard man / man
ah badman / man an nah no dude / nah treat
yuh like no food / caw me give it to you good,
" then goes on to say "me ah show you Jamaican
style / we ah do it hotta dan Kingston...." 
You've heard just about every Rude Boy remix,
but this one is a 'must play;' it's too Certified HOTTT!
Broadcasting at 320kbps, let your listeners know
how a true Rude Boy, Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco,
deals wid dih ting here:
