Mr. Vegas Shells Down Boston

The Original Gallis Drops Hits Pon Top Of Hits

Quiet as it’s kept, Mr. Vegas is on a roll right now.

But this set was for the true heads. “Nike Air,” “Heads High,” “Pull Up,” “She’s A Ho,” “Hot Wuk”… Catalog, me say. And the man works the stage like a true veteran entertainer.

DUNGLOAD: Michael Jackson Reggae Megamix

The King of Pop Inna Rub A Dub Stylee

The King may be gone but his legend lives on… and we don’t know what we’ve got till it’s gone. While many in his own homeland took Michael Jackson’s staggering brilliance for granted, MJ gets maximum respect in the dancehall, where a big bumbaclaat tune is a big bumbaclaat tune, no matter how dem chat.
