WATCH THIS: Frassman Brilliant "Go Down and Wine" Official Music Video

Frassman Brilliant is that real badman who makes the girls galang bad

If this world were mine, they’d play daggering tunes all the time. Frassman Brilliant shines with lovely ladies by his side for a girls night out event. Dancehall makes the best dancers step forward and whine, and The “Frostman” B is there to relish every moment of it.  The single “Go Down and Whine” puts you in the feel of the heart-racing Major Lazer x RDM dance track “Lose Yourself”, and as the beat drops the females are ready to shake a tailfeather. There’s nothing like free admission into the hottest club and popping bottles of Moet awaiting you in the VIP. Frassman Brillant takes care of the ladies, like a true gallis would. Just ask the original Gallis singer Mr.Vegas, who doesn’t love to see the girls dem whine and bruk it down? Peep the new visuals and see how you feel. Video After The Jump…

HEAR THIS: Flexx Calls For Truce Between Bounty Killa And Mavado

HEAR THIS: Flexx Calls For Truce Between Bounty Killa And Mavado

Former Alliance member Flexx wants peace for Dancehall giants Mavado and Bounty Killa

There is trouble on the Gullyside as Jamaican artists Bounty Killa and Mavado—a former members of the Alliance—have launched into a lyrical battle over a range of past differences. Mavado’s longtime bredren Flexx went on to leave Alliance and signed to Hapilos 21, while Mavado has been spending time in America after signing to DJ Khaled’s record label We The Best. Bounty Killa has released several diss tracks striking out against Mavado—the latest of which, “Kill and Destroy” on the red-hot “Good Book” riddim, is a direct reponse to Mavado’s track on the same riddim—and despite reports that the Gully God has put the lyrical battle behind him, the We The Best artist continues to release music that sounds like it subliminally targets the Alliance team. Bounty Killa was booed off stage in Jamaica for speaking negative words about Mavado and members of his Gully Squad crew  and now Mavado’s new track “Do Wah Yuh Waan ” is rumored to be a direct launch at The Five Star General Bounty Killer.  Dancehall has a long history of clash and rivalry, but nobody wants to see things get out of hand. To prevent a never-ending battle that could lead to someone getting hurt, Flexx has broken the silence and spoken out against the rivalry.  Audio after the Jump
