Live From The Sweet Jamaica Album Launch, Vegas Bigs Up Buju And Busy and Fire Blaxx
Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence, Mr. Vegas launched his new double album Sweet Jamaica in fine style last night at Miss Lily’s Variety in NYC—broadcast live pon RadioLily.com. While Max Glazer and Spliffington juggled tracks from the new album plus a murderous selection of computer riddims, industry players like DJ Norie of 105.1FM, Johnny Wonder of 21st Hapilos, Neil Robertson of VP, and Radio Lily’s own DJ Autograph, DJ Select, Night Nurse, Micro Don, and the whole Miss Lily’s fam turned out in force, with strong media presence from LargeUp, Tempo, and of course Boomshots in the building. After a fifteen-minute interview by Rob Kenner, Vegas blessed the place with a quick live performance, building up to his current smash hit “Bruk It Down.” Video & photos by the man called Gizmo after the jump…
“Where the real goodas girls dem? Step forward and wine!” Run that…

Gotta love how Vegas represents for reggae music—and some of his fellow artists like Buju Banton and Busy Signal who are now going through all manner of trials and tribulations. Before the show Vegas shared with me that he and Busy Signal were supposed to tour together this summer—unfortunately that won’t be possible now. But the reggae mission continues.
