Bounty Killer disses Alkaline After BRT Performance In Florida

Bounty Killer tries to undermine his longtime rival Alkaline once again

On Saturday, the Dancehall veteran took to social media to uploaded a video of Alkaline performing at BRT Weekend in Miami, Florida.

Killer used the opportunity to take jabs at the Vendetta deejay shutting down claims that he was running the music industry, “A DEM YA DEM SAY AGO RUN DANCEHALL A DEM A RUN WEH DANCEHALL YES?? Big BRT Weekend calm like a desert ?,” he wrote.

Bounty Killer continued by dubbing Alkaline the “most boring artiste alive.”

“The formula tun funeral ⚰️ The dead man himself go watch back how we deal wid beach parties a forth clarence in our prime next 3yrs it ago sticky bad Most Boring Artiste Alive,” Killer added. “Dem germs ya can dis mi and get away unuh wait until mi head chip out again the business got to be cleanse bounty the cleanser??Stone Inna Di Hog Penn Who First Ago Squeel Out!.”

Bounty Killer reignited his longstanding feud with Alkaline in August after he labeled the “Formula” star as the “biggest Freakazoid” in Dancehall history during a lengthy Instagram rant.

Alkaline did not take such a public route as his veteran counterpart as he chose to DM his insults directly to the Dancehall legend saying “S*ck out yuh mumma yah b*tch.”

It will be interesting to see Alkaline’s response this time around.

Heavy on the vibes and rich in lyrics, “Run Di Country” sends a clear message of dominance and states “…ah we…if anno Holness den ah we…”

New York City based TruMoneyMusiq has been tapping emerging and/or new Jamaica based talent since their 2020 inception.  Their intentional support of Jamaica’s new generation, Reggae Dancehall music aligns with its iconic owner’s (King Addies) original 1990’s niche of introducing and/or popularizing several of today’s reggae dancehall legends in the United States when they were also just emerging.

Dancehall Artiste Brysco Detained By Police

Emerging dancehall artist Brysco, currently trending with the song ‘Code’, has found himself entangled with the law.

During an Instagram Livestream, the deejay was detained by law enforcement officials and his mobile phone confiscated while on the side of the road. It’s understood he was pulled over in a traffic stop by the lawmen.

During the Livestream, the artist could be heard arguing with the officers as he pleaded with them to allow him to be on his way. A female police officer was also noticed recording the ordeal with a cellphone during the exchange. Yet, they demanded that the artist desists from doing the same, subsequently leading to the confiscation of his phone.

It’s unclear whether the artist was taken into custody, as checks with the relevant authorities revealed no further updates.

The Montego Bay-based entertainer shot to prominence over a week ago with his controversial new single “Code”. The cause of much commotion, the risque song praises Portmore sex workers for what it deems their creativity in giving fellatio to clients.

According to Brysco, using ‘Ensure’, a milk-based nutritional shake, is the new trend employed by the ‘Back Road’ sex workers when performing the act to heighten the experience—evidenced by the song’s official visual and narratives. Since its release, the song has been trending and is currently one of the most heavily rotated singles.

Bulby York Taps Malica And Tanya Stephens For “Queen” Single.

Award-winning producer and engineer Collin ‘Bulby’ York believes that women should have more of a voice and presence in Jamaica’s music industry.

It is natural that he would pair two dynamic women, talented singer/songwriter Malica Stallworth and Dancehall icon Tanya Stephens, to drive the lead single for his untitled new album.

“Queen,” is a pulsing collaboration between these two powerhouses that encourages women to affirm their royalty, stand in their own power, and define their own paths.


“It is fitting for us to glorify the women around us,” says Bulby. “We often overlook theimportance of females, of what they have to offer. We treat them as if they are less than when in reality they do so much more and accomplish more with less support and recognition.”

Malica, who was featured on the single “Wiggle Wiggle” with Beenie Man on Bulby’s “Heartcrafted” album in 2020, was inspired to write “Queen” after experiencing the disrespect shown to women, especially women of color, on public platforms, particularly social media.

She was disturbed by the ways in which black women as a whole are judged and treated based on the actions of a small handful.

“If you listen to my verses, you’ll hear affirmations – ‘I know I am worthy, divine, and royal’ is an affirmation for women,”

Malica says. “One of the first lines I wrote was ‘mind your manners when you talk to a Queen.’ The one thing I want women to take away from this song is to not allow yourself to be separated from your royalty.”

Applications Now Invited For Reggae Girlz Scholarships

High school and college students have been invited to apply for three Reggae Girlz scholarships, with the window closing at midnight on June 5.

President of the Reggae Girlz Foundation, Michelle Adamolekun, said two of the three scholarships will honour two former players who have died. The first is Tarania ‘Plum Plum’ Clarke, who died tragically on October 31 when she was stabbed in Half-Way Tree, Kingston, during a dispute over a mobile phone.

The second honouree is Jean Nelson, who died September 11 last year. Nelson was a former footballer and national senior women’s football team manager. She was also one of the persons responsible for the formation of the national women’s league in the 1990s.

Adamolekun said Nelson was a role model and an avid advocate for the women’s programme and players.

In addition to the scholarships, she said the foundation will be providing emergency support to student athletes as the need arises during the year.

“Most recently, we helped to pay the costs for former under-15, under-17 and under-20 Reggae Girl and recent Jacksonville University graduate, Rachel Walters, to apply for her Optional Practical Training, which provides her with the authorisation to work in the United States after graduating from college,”Adamolekun said.

The Reggae Girlz Foundation was officially launched in late 2018 and has been instrumental in helping to subsidise expenses for the women’s programme. The expenses include those for camps, hotel, transportation, meals/hydration needs, needed software, equipment, and now scholarships.

Among the sponsors that have come on board in making the scholarships possible are Golden Krust of Atlanta, Zuree Dolls and Armwaves.

The total value of the scholarships is US$4,000, or approximate;y J$625,000.

Looking ahead, Adamolekun said the ultimate goal is to increase the value and number of scholarships each year.

Shenseea Working On Sophomore Album

In a recent interview on Canada’s Brandon Gonez Show, recording artist Shenseea addressed several topical matters, including her debut album, feedback from the fans, and the way forward.

Amid the conversation, she intimated that work has begun on her sophomore album, and it will be completely different from her “ALPHA’ project.

Despite heavy criticism from fans and some industry players, the “Lick” singer expressed that she’s pleased with the current state of her career,

“I’m happy where I am right now because I feel like I’ve been getting a lot of recognition from international acts, producers I’m working with. I’m working on my second album, and knowing that I’ve given my first album, ‘Alpha’ to the culture; it’s my very first, I had to give back to my culture, the second one is completely different,” she added.

Teasing fans with that tidbit of information, she remained tightlipped about the album’s more granular details.

Meantime, confirmed as one of the headliners for New York City’s Pride Island (June 25), a festival hosted by the LGBTQ community, Shenseea is also booked for Rolling Loud Toronto slated for September 9-11 in Ontario, Canada. Locally, she is among the headliners for this year’s staging of Reggae Sumfest in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay. The event gets on the way in July.
