Many YouTube users outside Jamaica upload their own rendition of the latest Dancehall dances. For example, since posting a choreographed video to Major Lazor’s “Watch Out For This (Bumaye)”  last December, DHQ Fraules from Russia has over 13 Million views on her video alone! Websites like DanceJA in Jamaica are also providing opportunities for celebrity choreographers to teach in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Japan. Seeing  the demand for Jamaican dancers, Mr. Vegas provided a platform for young ladies to live out their dreams as Dancehall Queens. The top prizes for winner include US $10,000.00 / being an official member of Mr. Vegas touring party / 6 months supply of MV (Mr. Vegas) Clothing and much more.

FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Rita Marley "One Draw" Original 12'' Mix

Build One Spliff An Take A Whiff

The legalization of marijuana is a topic on many a person’s lips. States like Colorado and Washington are spearheading the legal marijuana trade and basically showing the U.S and the rest of the world how profitable and how positively it affects the economy. So why dem nah fi legalize di herb?! We’ve been asking that question for years. With the legalization and medical usage of marijuana seemingly reaching a tipping point, Rita Marley felt it was the right time to re-issue the original extended 12″ hit version of “One Draw.” In 1981 she released an upbeat ode to herb-smoking with a memorable tongue-in-cheek dialogue between a “teacher” and some of her “students” with names such as “Herbie,” “Smokie” and “Mila” (short for “sensimilla”).

On why she felt it was the right time to re-issue the classic, Rita said: Read more »
