At 6:30 this morning Macka dropped by Boomshots JA HQ to drop off the tune and have a little reasoning with The ReggaeGirlAboutTown about what really happened with her no-show at Sting and why she says the war is just beginning. Stay tuned for the interview going live in the next few hours. You don’t want to sleep on this one . Audio After The Jump…
