Love & Hip Hop ATL: Spice Apologize To Justin Budd After Revealing Breakup On Wendy Williams

Fans of Spice was shocked when the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta reality star told Wendy Williams that she was single in June when she was promoting “Go Down Deh.”

However, it seems that it was all just Spice and Justin Budd in malice. A clip of the latest episode of the show reveals Spice and Justin sitting down and talking, but an incensed Spice talks about being single because she is not married.

“You feel like you had to spite me with Wendy Williams,” Justin yelled. “Why would you go on tv to the biggest mouth in the world and tell her that you’re single? We didn’t know what was going in the f***** relationship.”

Spice, however, says that she was only giving the correct answer to the question Wendy asked her.

“I put my ring finger up, I’m not married, that’s the question. I don’t know what you wanted me to say. If I knew what was going on in my relationship I probably would have said ‘oh I’m in a serious relationship… that’s what happened.”

On her Instagram account, Spice sought to explain why she said she was single. It seems that she and Justin had had a fight, and she wasn’t sure what was going on.

“My baby I love you , but if you haven’t spoken to me in 6 hours we have a problem, if you malice me for 12 hours that means we “break up” if you haven’t spoken to me for 2 days I’m single @jbuddmedia it’s a Caribbean thing if we argue we Leff,” Spice said.

She added that the cultural differences might account for misunderstandings between her and Justin.

“You just have to understand me but I’m sorry baby next time I’ll construct my sentence better but not you saying “Wendy have the biggest mouth in the world,” she added.

Back in June, her fans were troubled after Spice declared she was single despite having shared her relationship with Justin publicly.

While in the Hot Seat, Wendy Williams asked Sean Paul and Shaggy if they were single and then proceeded to Spice. However, before she asked the question, Spice quickly showed her left hand displaying no ring.

Wendy Williams had something to say about that which may be what irked Justin.

“And that’s best for you because you’re trying to grind it out and a lot of times men don’t understand, you know, a woman on the road,” Wendy said, to which Spice said in agreement- “They don’t.”

Spice first shared her relationship with Justin in December 2020. They are now featured as a couple on the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta show where they reportedly met on set with Justin formerly being a part of the film crew for the show. Spice joined the reality show in 2018.

Nicki Minaj, Rihanna & A$AP Rocky Double Date With Their Families For Labor Day Weekend

Nicki Minaj sent fans into a frenzy when she shared some new photos witj Rihanna and A$AP Rocky hanging out for a double date and family get together for Labor Day Weekend.

One picture shows Nicki Minaj holding her son, surrounded by her husband, Kenneth Petty, on her right and Rihanna and her boyfriend, rapper A$AP Rocky on her left. “#RokNRiha #QueenRih #CaribbeanGirlsRunit Love her downnnnnnn #NewYorkShit #YKTFV,” Nicki Minaj captioned her post.

The 38-year-old rapper later shared a video of herself and Rihanna flaunting their black beauty until Rihanna said, “Caribbean things, you know what I’m sayin’?” in reference to the fact that they both are from the Caribbean. Rihanna was born in Barbados, and Nicki was born in Trinidad.

Before Nicki could continue the brag about the Caribbean, Rihanna blurts, “You know Bajans don’t like Trinis” leaving Nicki wide-eyed. She continued in her Bajan accent, “And Trini’s don’t like Bajans either. They draw a line in the ocean over flying fish. But that’s a different night, that’s for a different night.”

Cou cou served with flying fish is the national dish in Barbados, and because these small, winged fish are plentiful in the waters around the island, it has long been dubbed “the land of the flying fish.”

While Rih Rih’s claim is left to the public to argue, many fans are just excited that the two are hanging out together again.

“Doesn’t get any better than this!!” one person said, while another added, “GOD I’VE MISSED THIS SO MUCH!!! QUEENS!!!!!”

The “Diamonds” singer and the “Chun Li” rapper first worked together in 2010 on Rihanna’s single “Raining Men.” The two women also collaborated in 2011 on the hit single “Fly,” and fans believe the ladies are due for another.

One Twitter user speculated, “A picture and video of Nicki Minaj & Rihanna is breaking the internet in under 20 minutes of being posted. Imagine a collab… holy f**!”

While fans are wondering if the link-up is the announcement of an upcoming collaboration, Rihanna has not released new music for quite some time, despite calls from fans.

The 33-year-old Fenty Beauty entrepreneur/singer was officially declared a billionaire last month, and many social media users had concluded that this might be the end of her music career since she does not necessarily need it.

Still, others are hoping that the reigns of fellow Caribbean musician Nicki Minaj will be enough to pull her back to the music scene.

Skillibeng Teases “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle With Nicki Minaj

Skillibeng teases his upcoming “Crocodile Teeth” Freestyle with Nicki Minaj.

Ever since emerging on the scene, Skillibeng has shown all the qualities of becoming a master of the dancehall genre. He’s managed to cop some impressive collaborations along the way, including top dancehall acts like Dre Island, Tommy Lee Sparta, and dancehall superstar Popcaan. Now he’s looking to take his music to an international level and has announced his biggest potential upcoming collab to date, a freestyle remix of his massive hit “Crocodile Teeth” with multi-platinum rapper Nicki Minaj.

He revealed the exciting news on Instagram with the caption: “50,000 comments.” Fans immediately began to react to the news. Lila Ike, who he has a track with, said: “Run dat fuuuuh,” while Shenseea and Shaneil Muir added flame emojis to show their support while ShenYeng calls it a “big look”. The post, which was made a short while ago today, May 8, has already been liked over 50,000 times.

“Yuh wicked more Dan Weh me tink,” one fan said, while another added, “Happy for you and Jamaica when you win everyone wins.” This fan chimed in with enthusiasm, “This ago sick when it drop mi gad.”

The track has already been massively successful on YouTube and has already brought in over 18 million views since it was released in October 2020. Just last week, Canadian rapper Tory teased a new track he recorded on the Skillibeng’s “Crocodile Teeth” riddim, an indicator of how popular the track keeps getting.

Lanez shared a clip of the track on Instagram and captioned it “@skillibeng #CrocodileTeeth …… should I drop this or leave this in the stash? … I think it’s fire tho … word to @ovoroxx cornrows.” The Esyde artist has enjoyed mostly positive feedback from fans ever since his break out hit “Brik Pan Brik” in 2019. That song has about seven million views.

Nicki Minaj, who has strong Caribbean roots through her birthplace Trinidad, has been quiet for a while now since she’s chosen to focus on her new family, but if she’s thinking about making a come back soon, then this collaboration is sure to produce some heat.

While Skillibeng is relatively new to the music, Nicki Minaj has been around for over a decade and is to date one of the most commercially successful rappers of all-time and perhaps the most success female rapper ever. She has sold over 137 million records worldwide. Despite not releasing any new music this year, her song “LLC” climb to No. 1 on the chart after her fans started pushing the single.

Alkaline’s “Top Prize” Album Tops Streaming Charts Ahead Of Release

Alkaline says his sophomore album shows growth and experience as the body of work making its presence felt on international charts ahead of its release.

With several weeks to go before the release of his second studio album, Alkaline is already dominating the charts. His album Top Prize is the #1 pre-ordered album on all major streaming platforms, including Amazon and iTunes. Alkaline’s fans have been showing up for the artiste as they await the May 14 release of the album.

As of the time of this publication, the album was #1 in pre-orders internationally and for the Reggae charts on Amazon. Sales have also landed “Top Prize” in the best selling charts in Amazon’s Caribbean category.

On the iTunes platform, “Top Prize” secured the top prize, peaking at number 1 on the US Reggae Album chart. It also peaked at the #2 spot on the global all genres chart before falling into #4 for worldwide pre-order sales.

This is a big deal for the Vendetta artiste, who recently secured his place in history when he became the first Jamaican and Caribbean artiste to perform on streaming service Audiomack’s Acoustic, visual series. Alkaline performed the song “Cree,” which is one of the 14 tracks to be featured on his upcoming album.

The performance, which is featured on Audiomack’s YouTube channel, is #6 on Trending in Jamaica and has more than 238,000 views.

In another history-making move, the “Ocean Wave” singer also became the face of Spotify’s first Caribbean-focused playlist. The “Back A Yard” playlist was released following Spotify’s major expansion into 83 additional countries.

In addition to the track titled “Top Prize,” Alkaline’s album will feature works such as “Medicine,” “Payroll,” “Ocean Wave,” “More Life,” “Hostage,” and “Cree.” Fans are already debating and forecasting which track will be their favorite.

“Top Prize,” the single, has already been making waves of its own, amassing millions of streams across multiple platforms. The song has over 2.5 million views on YouTube alone.

Alkaline’s PR rep, Shuzzr, told Urban Islandz, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable. As an independent artist he continues to break barriers globally and expand the genre’s footprint in mainstream and new media markets; in the coming weeks he will give fans a ‘soulful jam’ of tracks. Our client’s product and approach is meticulous and the results can be seen from the respect and support he receives from his fans worldwide.”

Shuzzr added, “The level of artistry, growth and dominance Alkaline has demonstrated over the years is incomparable.”

Alkaline says that the project is a reflection of his growth and experience after being in the music industry for a decade. “This album is timely as with my experiences, the lessons learned and growth overtime, it is only fair that I bring everything full circle,” Alkaline told us. “All the Detta fans who have been a part of the movement from day one will appreciate it and even those who have just come to realize the fact will enjoy it… It bad! Lol.”

Alkaline’s debut album “New Level Unlocked” peaked at #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart in 2016. It also spent 18 consecutive weeks on the chart. With fans already showing heavy support for “Top Prize,” it will be interesting to see how it truly compares in the coming weeks.

Tory Lanez Dropping A ‘Reggae Capsule’ Album This Summer & Talks Caribbean Roots

Tory Lanez has disclosed his Caribbean heritage, and you’re going to be surprised about his bright and colorful heritage collage that sweeps from Dutch to English and famous family members.

Tory Lanez has spoken about his dreams and desires to use his successful platform to cement his artistry in the world to Flaunt Magazine that featured him on the front cover for April. The artist is often quoted as a Toronto rapper born and raised in Canada, where there’s a rich Caribbean heritage.

Speaking about his plans to release a Reggae Album to pay homage to his roots, the artiste, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, disclosed that his mother is from Curacao, which is Dutch, while the rest of his family is Guyanese. His father’s family is from Barbados, where Rihanna is also from, but he also dropped an interesting tidbit. He also opened up about his plans to use his music to stop wars much like Bob Marley did.

His grandfather is actually the famous cricketer Garfield Sobers, one of the best in cricket history over the last 60 years. According to Tory Lanez, “I’ve always been island-oriented.

“What a lot of people don’t know is my grandfather is Garfield Sobers—he’s one of the best cricket players in the world. I come from a long line of greatness that stems from the islands,” the “LUV” artist said.

“I’ve always wanted to make sure that, no matter what I do, I’m paying certain respects to my ancestors and ancestry. Showing certain love in reminding people where I come from. I’ll never forget where I come from,” he said.

Tory Lanez added that his upcoming reggae capsule will reflect his love and respect for the islands.

“… I always double back and show love. The people from the islands appreciate me and understand me the most. It’s a root thing, it’s a cultural thing. They deserve it all. The Reggae capsule is incredible. I mixed Reggae with a lot of Afrobeats. Its Jamaican mixed with African vibe. I have all the dope artists.”

While speaking about his drive for music, the artist says he is striving to rebel from the norm.

“I want to defy the laws of music, that’s it. I want to take myself to different places and echelons, I want to do different things. The things that are the norm, I want to rebel against that. That’s the only time I could feel that way. Everything else about my music is very gray. It’s very simple-minded at the same time, but also very complex. I give people a little bit of half and half, that’s what makes people come back and listen to my music again.”

Lanez is currently under his own music label One Umbrella, which has since signed a number of artists. While no dancehall or reggae artist is signed to his label, he has several notable collaborations with some of Dancehall and Reggae’s biggest names, including Buju Banton‘s “Trust” released in 2020, Keznamdi’s City Lock released in 2020, Kranium, Sean Paul and several samples from Dancehall duo Tanto Metro and Devonte among others.

His music, too, has been well received in the Caribbean as the artist’s constant homage to dancehall has cemented for himself loyal and expectant fans who love his music.

Justin Bieber On If He’s Influenced By Reggae/Dancehall, “The Answer Is Yes”

Justin Bieber says he is influenced by reggae/dancehall music but failed to meet the low bar in giving Jamaican music its proper credit.

As a world advocate for reggae and dancehall music and Jamaica as a whole, DJ Khaled never fails to give credit to dancehall culture, which is not only a part of his roots but has spawned multiple hits for him. Khaled recently had the opportunity to interview Justin Bieber amidst the release of his latest album, Justice, and the hitmaking producer asked the pop superstar about dancehall’s influence on his own music.

Justin Bieber sparked some controversy back in 2015 with his monstrous comeback hit “Sorry” from his album Purpose. The popular track had that rhythmic dancehall flavor and bassline, and its accompanying music video featured styles and dances from dancehall culture. What most local dancehall artists and fans took issue with was the fact that the genre was never credited at any opportunity for its obvious influence on the record.

The producer behind the No. 1 track regularly dabbles in dancehall and reggae sounds and has often tipped his hat to the culture for influencing his productions. From interviews to award stages, Skrillex laments his fandom of the commonly-sampled genre time and time again. However, as if prohibited to do so, the word “dancehall” has never publicly escaped artists like Justin Bieber’s lips. DJ Khaled asked about “Sorry,” particularly during his recent interview with the pop superstar on his First One with DJ Khaled podcast on Amazon Music.

“The record ‘Sorry,’ it has that dancehall feel. I love Jamaica. I love reggae, I love dancehall music. It wouldn’t be no DJ Khaled if Khaled didn’t break out of dancehall. It’s part of my story and who I am,” Khaled said. “What inspired you to make that record? Are you influenced by reggae music/dancehall music?”

In response, Justin told Khaled, “So the answer is yes. I am inspired by really all music but in particular I love island music. I love the feel of just the percussion, you know, I’m a drummer so that percussion it moves me. It makes me want to dance.”

“I wanna make music for the world,” Bieber continues. “I don’t want to get caught up being too isolated. I want to make music that impacts everybody of all cultures, all ethnicities, all shapes and sizes.”

Justin, who is a self-taught musician, has been playing the drums since he was a toddler. After teaming up with several renowned music producers influenced by reggae and dancehall sounds, he has created a number of similar dancehall flavored records – all of which went unattributed to the originating culture.

One of the major producers that Justin has worked with in the past who has faced similar criticism is Major Lazer, a group that is undoubtedly the product of an amalgamation of genres like dancehall, Afro-beats, EDM, and more. While one of its members is Jamaican, admitting the influence of dancehall on their records has seemed to be as difficult for them as it is for Justin. They too have faced backlash for cultural appropriation in addition to artists like Drake and Kanye West.

The artists who tend to give dancehall the respect it deserves pretty much grew up on it themselves as Caribbean natives. Namely, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj often highlight the undeniable impact of the genre and raise awareness of its prior existence.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” which was one of the biggest records of 2015, broke a number of streaming records in multiple regions, and the visuals currently boast more than 3.5 billion views on YouTube, ranking as the platform’s 13th most viewed video. It unquestionably catalyzed the renewed interest in dancehall-influenced mainstream music and was the start of an onslaught of tracks by various artists that were clearly products of dancehall culture.

As for when dancehall will actually be named by some mainstream artists as a major influence and stop being whitewashed by mainstream music media with empty terms like “Island music,” “Tropical House,” and “Caribbean-flavored,” we will have to wait and see.

Cardi B Explains How Rihanna & Jay-Z Inspired Her To Become A Billionaire

Cardi B says she looks up to Rihanna as she aspires to reach the same level of success as billionaire status, which Rihanna and Jay-Z have accomplished in a short frame of time.

Rihanna is becoming known as a business maestro as she sweeps the fashion industry with her Fenty brands that include lingerie, skincare, makeup and beauty, and luxury fashions, and now she’s seemingly about to enter the haircare industry – a multi-billion dollar industry due to the popularity of wigs and lace fronts and fashionable hairstyles without damaging the natural hair.

According to Cardi B, her biggest influences are Rihanna and Jay-Z, and she wants the same level of success. Speaking to Stationhead this week, she says her aspirations have transformed from the time she entered music to now as she sees the possibilities.

“When I came to the game and people used to be like, ‘who do you look up to?’ I always used to say, ‘I don’t look up to nobody,’ because I didn’t really understand the game and I only feel like I got influenced by the people that was around me,” she explained.

She added, “But now that I’m at the level that I am at, one of my biggest influences is Rihanna and Jay-Z. And I’m not saying it to kiss ass or anything. I just feel like they’re so influential because Rihanna comes from a country, a Caribbean country, that my parents came from and she’s a whole billionaire.”

Rihanna, who was born in Barbados to a Bajan father and a Guyanese mother, was discovered in her teenage years, after which she migrated to the United States to pursue her music dreams. Over the last five years, she has been working on her business empire, which has transformed the financial ranking of the “Umbrella” artist.

Earlier this year, Forbes reported that Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty company had reached $1 billion in valuation that made her become the world’s richest female musician. Cardi B, on the other hand, is a first-generation American born to parents who are from the Dominican Republic, so the fact that Rihanna has achieved that much seems to resonate with Cardi.

“For her to make her business so big and be a billionaire, that’s what I strive to be. That’s what I want. I want to be a billion dollar woman. I want to build a huge brand,” she added.

She also associated her experiences with Jay-Z, who she says “was from the hood like me.” Cardi B grew up in the tough Bronx New York neighborhood and got her big break in reality TV after building a reputation as a stripper turned rapper.

“He’s from the hood and this man’s a whole billionaire. And that’s just all about strategy and that’s just all about shaking hands, that’s just all about putting plans together.”

Earlier this month, Jay-Z’s net worth increased from $1 billion to $1.4 billion after he sold shares in his champagne company Armand de Brignac to the luxury brand owner LVMH as well as selling his shares in Tidal to the Jack Dorsey owned Square.

Meanwhile, Cardi B has been changing her strategies as she has pivoted from music as her only source of income and has several movies coming out soon. The multi-talented Grammy-winning rapper has also appeared in many commercials as she puts her acting chops on display.

Spragga Benz and Buju Banton doesn’t agree with Bounty Killer and other dancehall artists pro-vaccine message.

Earlier this week, the Jamaican government received the first shipment of the much sought-after COVID-19 vaccine. Prior to its arrival from India, there had been much debate as to who would be rolling back their sleeves to take what could be one of the most important impalements of their lives. Conspiracy theorists have been quite vocal about their stance on the ‘deadly’ Covid-19, the pandemic, and the rushed vaccine. Though these people are prevalent around the world, it is the varying positions taken by Jamaican entertainers and the subsequent pushbacks they have been receiving that have Caribbean locals talking.

Both Buju Banton and Spragga Benz have lashed out at the government’s protocols to quell the spread of the virus.

Buju Banton went on an “anti-mask-wearing” tirade late last year via Instagram, for which he received some backlash. Adopting a very Darwinian stance as it relates to “survival of the fittest,” several persons, including his children, criticized his standing on the matter.

From all indications, he has not backed down, recently joining fellow entertainer Spragga Benz in criticizing the government’s latest actions.

Before Spragga stuck it to the government, he seemingly made a bit of time to comment on Bounty Killer’s recent pro-vaccine post. On Monday, the self-proclaimed Poor People Governor shared a poster for an impending show which he and fellow entertainer Beenie Man would be headlining in Ibiza, Spain, later this year. In his caption, he urged his Instagram followers to get vaccinated so as not to miss out on the opportunity to see the one-time rivals perform live.

Spragga took Instagram to express his disgust toward Bounty’s call to action.

“Mi see some BIG BAD Jamaican artist promoting di vaxi agenda already… either dem get a promise or dem really dunce to the program,” he said.

A newspaper article published a day later further angered Benz. The attention-grabbing headline expressed that the Jamaican government would be granting immunity to the makers of the vaccine. This means the company would not be liable if persons became ill after taking the vaccine.

“Unoo agoh bawl fi Jah…. MEMBA ME SPRAGGA BENZ SAY DAT…COVID vaccine manufacturers to get protection from lawsuits!” He chanted on social media.

He further questioned if the government should not be responsible for protecting its people over a vaccine company.

Aside from Spragga Benz and Buju Banton, other entertainers have voiced anti-vaccine sentiments, including Sizzla, Tony Rebel, Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid, and Lee’ Scratch Perry. On the flip side, entertainers who have voiced their willingness to take the jab include Shaggy, Ce’cile, Macka Diamond, and Bounty Killer.

Teejay Responds To Weight Loss Critics Alleging Lipo, Beenie Man & Shenseea Reacts

Teejay is responding to fans that reacted to his massive weight loss and said his new healthy lifestyle is why he is able to shed the pounds and not lipo.

The artiste sent tongues wagging after sharing comparison photos in which he had gained a massive amount of weight. Many persons have been struggling as they ease up their active day-to-day life due to the cut down in activities thanks to covid-19 and the economy shutting down. Teejay and a number of other artistes, even the likes of Usain Bolt, are showing the bellies they have grown as their periods of inactivity due to the pandemic restrictions.

However, Teejay isn’t letting that weight stay on as he disclosed that he shed 50 pounds in just two months and three weeks. Fans of the artiste, however, begged him to share his secret as they too were dealing with the pandemic “15”.

One fan asked, “what you use,” as if expecting the artiste to disclose some complicated fancy treatment for only celebrities. Well, the comments on the artiste’s new body have not let up, and he is finally sharing his secret that is not a secret.

According to him, good old dieting and exercising are why he was able to lose weight as he appeared on a video on Instagram to share the “secret.”

So you want to know how I lose the weight- ah mi sweet senseimania mi nah lef ya and mi yam and bana mi nah leff yah,” he said, speaking to the power of marijuana in restricting appetite while also speeding up the metabolism.

Teejay added, “Unu must get up off unu bumboclaat bed and go run a mawning time bout unu want remedy.”

Shenseea clearly found his comment hilarious as she said, “Lmfaoooo,” while Beenie Man, who is popularly known for his own quarantine belly battle, said, “it’s the lifestyle my G.”

Teejay is among the growing list of male artistes who have taken their weight gain seriously and done something about it. Among those who have shared their weight loss journey are Beenie Man, Elephant Man, I-Octane, and now Teejay.

According to Teejay, “it’s just a healthy lifestyle my fans nothing to worry about am good.”

Culturally, weight gain is celebrated in the Caribbean as it signifies someone ‘living well’. However, in recent times, many are coming around the cultural fable to understand that health is more important than appearing “fat,” which is still a compliment in some Caribbean countries like Jamaica, and getting skinny means one is “struggling” or going through hardship.

Exercise has become popular in dancehall, and some artistes have even been featured in the country’s national exercise campaign ‘Jamaica Moves’ as they contribute to changing the attitude towards diet and exercise.

Earlier this week, she caused quite a stir when she posted a picture on Instagram in which she is wearing a diamond-encrusted pendant featuring the Hindu god Ganesha. The Hindu community found the picture in poor taste, and of course, some of the comments likened the act to “cultural appropriation.” This is not the first time the singer was accused of this, as in October 2020, she issued an apology for using a song that sampled Islamic text in her Savage X Fenty fashion show.

However, it seems all have been forgiven for now! Happy Birthday, Rihanna!

Queen Of Dancehall Spice Announces Debut Album “TEN” Dropping Soon

Spice announced that her debut album TEN is coming soon.

After ten long years of being signed to her label, Spice revealed that she is finally dropping an album. The dancehall veteran who has been in the industry for a couple of decades at least signed a multi-album deal with VP Records in July 2009. It only took a dozen years, but the label is finally releasing the dancehall star’s first album TEN.

Spice recently did a sit-down video interview with Robbo Ranx on Robbo Ranx Radio, where she made the big announcement. “I’ve been signed to a label for ten years and now I’m finally dropping my 1st album… it’s gonna be called TEN!” an excited Spice revealed.

While Robbo Raanx was first to break the news, Spice reshared the quote in a post on Instagram with the caption, “The gate pull [laughing emoji] After ten years my Album is finally “COMING SOON” All we need is a good release date from you below @robboranxradio @vprecords ready?” The dancehall star is getting fans involved in the decision making which they are quite excited about.

They have suggested different dates that seem to be fated, while some want her to release the album on her birthday, which is in August. Though it wasn’t asked of them, others chimed in with suggestions for collaborations dropping names like Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Cardi, who has a Caribbean background, is a longtime fan of Spice which she has pointed out to the dancehall star when they cross paths like at award shows. Plus, they now share that Love & Hip-Hop background, so perhaps the prospect of a joint track isn’t exactly far-fetched.

In the comments, fans took the opportunity to call out the label that signed a “multi-album” deal with Spice but only just now decided to release her very first album after more than ten years. “@vprecords longtime unnu did fi just let her release a album or release her too damn wicked. But Thanks for the album,” one stan wrote.

It’s official, Spice’s album is coming soon. Do you think it’s long overdue?

Offset Whisk Cardi B & Kulture Off To An Island For A Valentine’s Day Baecation

Offset whisk away Cardi B and their daughter Kulture to the Caribbean for Valentine’s Day vacation.

While most of us are gifting our significant others with jewelry, roses, and chocolate for Valentine’s Day, Offset sets the bar to a whole new level when he surprised his wife Cardi B with a vacation to the island. Sources told Urban Islandz that the Migos rapper had been planning the trip for a while and kept it a secret from Cardi until days before leaving.

We’re told that Set rented out a private villa decked out with hundreds of red roses and completed with a 24-hour staff, including personal chefs and babysitters. Offset also got a ton of gifts for both Cardi B and their daughter Kulture that he will be giving them on Sunday, when they celebrate Valentine’s Day and will have a private dinner.

The Bronx rapper gave fans a tour of their private villa in a series of videos posted on her Instagram Story. She was evidently swept off her feet by the Atlanta trapper. “You did this for me babe?” she asked, to which he replied, “Yes.” She later added, “This is so beautiful. I feel loved, guys.”

A post shared by OFFSET (@offsetyrn)

Set also shared a clip of himself and Kulture walking on the white sandy beach. It’s clear that he’s enjoying the warm Caribbean weather, which is a far cry from the cold weather in Atlanta currently.

Offset and Cardi B are in a great place right now following a near divorce in September last year when she abruptly filed for divorce in Atlanta. The pair once again managed to patch things up and have been quietly working on their marriage since then.

Cardi tweeted that she forgot to bring her Old Bay on the trip with her. No, she isn’t talking about her ex; she means the iconic Old Bay seasoning.

Sooo mad ain’t bring old bay to this trip ????Only fucckin thing missing -_-

Busta Rhymes – Deep Thought Lyrics

[Intro: Busta Rhymes]
Baby, you want me?
Well, I want you, too
You can have me
If I can have you, too
Come to mommy
Let me relax you
Let me comfort you
In deep thought, baby?
Tell me what’s on your mind
Yo, yo, yo

[Verse]
Smoking cigarettes, blow the smoke out
Can’t believe the shit that’s happening to me
When I need a place to be tranquil, meditate, think ’bout what really matter
Go and rest my head on my shawty booby
She run her fingers through the new dread I’m growing
Peep the way my day might have been overwhelming, tryna rеlax a nigga
If you listening and you catch the picture
You might see mе laying ‘tween my shawty legs holding a glass of liquor
And she keep rubbing my head, asking me to talk to her, I don’t even respond
Hold my hand, middle finger, tickle my palm
My shawty stay relaxed, she understand a nigga going through something
When I’m at home, ain’t no never need for the fronting
My voice going, I’m sounding like a frog, doing shows back to back
Partially why niggas reluctant to talk
They get their way when niggas start rubbing my hand, massaging my back
They start confessing to all the shit I was taught
Applying what I was taught to the point if you ain’t right, I will slap you
While becoming your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper
Then it all feels like the shit was in vainness, but I’m bringing it harder
Losing Chris Lighty and then losin’ my father
I’m bittersweet, so I promised my momma I’ma become a martyr
And every day that pass, I move a little smarter
That’s why I work so hard, I try expanding business a little larger
To get my son a Range and my daughter a Charger
But I feel cheated ’cause Chris and my father, they ain’t right here to see it (Wow son)

Well like I said, ’cause they ain’t right here to see it
Despite my heart was suffered, I’m still undefeated
I give ’em what they need and got ’em wildin’ ’til this niggas is coo-coo
We ain’t screaming “Violator” like we used to
You ask me what’s on my mind, baby, well I’ma serve you
There ain’t no statue of limitation when it comes to murder
You ever heard a nigga like me stay on top of shit
Won’t let it rest ’til we get to the bottom of it
Yeah, and they know who I’m talking to
Because they Busta Rhymes fans, but probably not after this song is through
The f*ck I’m ‘posed to do?
When this be the shit that I be thinking when I’m ‘posed to be honest when I talk to my boo
My shawty probably mad
‘Cause I ain’t supposed to share these conversations when we sharing moments like this out the blue
But then I got her blessing so that I can share this with y’all
Because she feel the way I feel, a lot of others, too
In any event, this the shit I’m thinking
Some of the many things that I’ve got on my mind, shawty
That’s probably why I smoke and I keep on drinkin’
‘Cause I need closure for my mind, soul and my body
Good days and bad days is part of the process
Buildin’ with my shawty, escaping the nonsense
And though I continue to keep it honest, thought process is complex
To keep your balance and focus on progress
That be the concepts despite the fights internally fought
Those who were there for daddy, thanks for your support
And when I’m long-term thinking, see, the terms these niggas think on is short
They hate when I spot ’em, now they throwing me salt
That’s how my mind travel like I’m in a Caribbean resort
Ponderin’ on shit when I’m in deep thought (You and I—)

Rihanna Shows Plenty Cleavage On Date Night With A$AP Rocky

Fans are raving about Rihanna’s latest outfit for a night out with A$AP Rocky.

As one of the biggest female style icons on the planet, Rihanna tends to turn heads everywhere she goes. During her latest buzzworthy outing, the Savage X Fenty boss was spotted in a sexy leather ensemble while out in New York for dinner with her rumored boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

The beauty and fashion mogul was showing cleavage in an alluring mesh and leather pairing. Clad in an unbuttoned Bottega Veneta leather shirt that is worth around $4,000 according to Page Six, RiRi gave onlookers a glimpse of her black mesh bra and distinguishing chest tattoo.

The singer also donned a mesh Bottega Veneta coat and vintage YSL fur with white pumps and an R13 baseball cap. The overall look captured the attention of fans and admirers, some of who are probably extremely jealous of A$AP Rocky right now.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky just recently returned from their Christmas trip in Barbados where they were seen hand in hand on a pier enjoying some quality time. The couple met up in New York on Monday to have dinner at popular Italian restaurant Emilio’s Ballato.

According to ENews, a source says they arrived separately. “They entered the restaurant through different doors and tried to be discreet. A$AP Rocky entered behind a bodyguard and ducked inside quickly. Once everyone arrived, they sat together with a group of friends,” the source said. The couple also left the restaurant separately as according to this source, “They stayed for over two hours before leaving separately. Rihanna left with friends and avoided being seen with Rocky.”

The dinner was reportedly held to honor late A$AP Mob artist A$AP Yams, who died on January 18, 2015. Every year on the anniversary of his death, the Mob gathers for “Yams Day”. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were even spotted together at last year’s tribute in New York City, the 2020 Yams Day Benefit Concert.

Rihanna and A$AP have been trying to keep their relationship under wraps, but she is taking him home to the Caribbean and showing up two consecutive years to honor his departed friend. It’s safe to say these two are emotionally invested.

Do you think the couple has big Valentine’s Day plans?

Ssq – Jet Town Je T’aime Lyrics

Flying above the Florida Keys
Going down south duty free
Pirates rum, Jamaican weed
The sound of Marley guaranteed
Cross Montego Bay at dawn
Thought I’d missed seeing James Bond
Chasing evil Dr. No
Like a secret agent hero
And he always gets the girl
Who seduced the world

If your plane goes down in Jet Town
You can almost disappear
Comes on that deja vu
Caribbean blue
Jet Town
Go down with me

There’s a writer next door in a sugar shack
Had a best seller out in paperback
You don’t need money in paradise
Just a platinum heart of ice
That man, Gogan, he missed his flight
We had a few drinks, then he spent the night
Sure gets tough being so damn international
But if you wanna rebel
You can always wreck a hotel

If your plane goes down in Jet Town
You can almost disappear
Comes on that deja vu
Caribbean blue
Jet Town
Go down with me

Gertrude Stein and Hemingway
Just got in from Santa Fe
At Ritz Canteen it was the last call
An old Van Gogh hung on the wall
Like sunset in a hurricane
Bermuda skies will take your name
Beneath the waves, silent cries
All the dreams that oxidize
Major Tom
Won’t you please take me along

If your plane goes down in Jet Town
You can almost disappear
Comes on that deja vu
Caribbean blue
Jet Town
Go down with me

Ace Of Base – Prime Time Lyrics

Cuban cigars and the lass lass in the bars
I see the rise and a hope for this down downtown Miami
Where the people are moving and grooving from dusk till dawn
My progress is you and I want it

[Chorus]
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Drop dead melodies
Do it at the feast
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Land of future, land of dreams
The rhythm is so divine

Unique I am like a unicorn tonight
So good to be at a place
That tomorrow is the answer
To the problems today
We should all go down to the light
They’re so right, we’re so wrong, we like it

[Chorus]
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Drop dead melodies
Do it at the feast
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Land of future, land of dreams
The rhythm is so divine
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Drop dead melodies
Do it at the feast
Prime Time, party time
Always here in the Caribbean sun
Land of future, land of dreams
The rhythm is so divine

[Outro / Verse 3]

Cuba Cuba Libre (I’m always coming over to you)
Cuba Cuba Libre
Cuba Cuba Libre (I’m always coming over to you)
Cuba Cuba Libre
Cuba Cuba Libre (I’m always coming over to you)

[Chorus: Burna Boy]

No time, no
And my dawg is on probation
Another 5 years
Me bring girls to his location
No time, no

[Verse 1: Dave]
Send me the location
This year ’bout vacations
Flight catching, train taking
Soon as my nigga off probation
Your boyfriend’s on a waiting ting
Looking for one wish, on a Ray J ting
I pree’d that girl, outrageous ting
But she can’t see ’cause I got shades and ting
Bare girls wanna throw shade and ting
No shade, what shade is your foundation in?
Darkest grey, the shade I’m in
49 more if your babes wants in
I had me a famous ting
Goals and tings, gains and tings
My house party a babe station
Girls wanna chase, it’s a status ting

[Chorus: Burna Boy]
If you send me the location

Three Somalis creepin’ on me
Your ex wavy, we tsunami
Girl from India, sweet as naani
Head so good, now I speak Gujarati
You hardly, pardon me, I’m laughing again
I assisted, man, passed to my friend
Look, money like the alphabet
If you wanna see P’s, gotta pass on the ends
Came a long way from a park in the bends
To an ’18 plate, man’s parking a Benz
Far from the rest but I’m far from my best
Life is a lesson, I’m passing a test
Yes, everyting blessed
I don’t want drama and I don’t want stress
My girl got finessed, Caribbean flex
Body and chest, take buddy in chest
Thank God more, I grew up with less
Juss to the right, Rapz to the left
Rj in the middle, got Cee to the death
Batch full of dogs with the 60’s vets

[Chorus: Burna Boy]
If you send me the location
Then I’ll be right there
Let me come, come check you, my baby

And my dawg is on probation

‘Cause there’s diamonds on my chain
And there’s diamonds on my watch
Money moves, Off-White shoes

Rick Steffen – Caribbean Blues II lyrics

The story I’m about to say – it just goes to show
How when you have A good thing – sometimes you let it go
One day the sun be shinin – your pleasures you can choose
The next day you be singin – those caribbean blues

Intro

There I was down island – my baby by my side
We had A love in the groove – that could not be denied
A man pulled up to the docks – with his fancy yacht
My baby hopped right on it – and left me on the spot

Oh…… – got those caribbean blues
You don’t know how bad it feels – til you’ got to loose
Oh… – got those caribbean blues
I’m gonna sail to my next island – and some better news

Intro + lead

Now when you travel down there – & meet those island girls
Be careful what you wish for – beneath those pretty curls
That girl there on the vessel – might look real good to you
But sooner or later – it’S the caribbean blues

(Chorus)
Ohhh those caribbean blues
You don’T know how bad it hurts – til you’Ve got to loose
Ohhh those caribbean blues-
Gonna sail to that next island – and some better news

MoStack – What I Wanna

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah
ILLBLU
You know I party with savages
In the club and I rass up the cannabis
Rass and rass and rass ’em

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live

I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Verse 1]
I like to kiss and cuddle and what?
Still a baddaman pon da baddaman block
Big ass jacket in Dubai, don’t ask why
Pass me the keys let me drive
Cah you’ve been smoking too much skunk
Plus I drive better when I’m drunk
I treat the car like a go-kart
Wouldn’t-a bust that red light if I was sober
I don’t respect my olders
I do what I want you can’t tell me no
I said I’m gonna be a star girl I told you so
Don’t be that guy that owes me dough
Send my ‘ooter down there with the chrome-y chrome
She’s like "when are you free?"
Never bitch I cost, if you drop out me
That’s your loss, I switch countries like I switch socks
Pull up, pull up when I drop that gloss

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Verse 2]
I saw this gyal at the zebra crossing
Black and white girl man it felt like a zebra crossing (yo shawty)
She said "can I get a lift?"
My girl with the lisp, said can I get a kiss
Indian gyal said I’m a bloody ghost
‘Cause all I do is hola then I adiós
Hit the Caribbean store for some curry goat
She said my meat taste good so she sucked the bone
I’m with a white girl, dancing with some stamina
She a wine to bashment while I’m grabbing her
She be moving like she’s got some black in her
That was before I put my black in her
I’m living so single and free
I sit comfy, knowing no-one’s cheating on me
My gyal even put her arms around me
She so comfy, she even fart around me

[Chorus]
I think I lost my mind, I can’t find that shit
I’m reckless in this life I live
I don’t think sometimes
I don’t even know why, baby I just live my life
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
Baby gyal I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

[Bridge]
I could pull up in the car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Car if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Take a girl yard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
Go hard if I want to (I just do it, do it)
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac
I’m a hustler, I thought you knew that
I could sell a Biggie Smalls album to 2Pac

[Outro]
I just do what I wanna, when I wanna, how I wanna

JUNGLEPUSSY – State Of The Union lyrics

You think you poppin’ cause your new chick low maintenance
Yeah you can’t handle it and I don’t have the patience

On the top shelf, prayin on caucasian?
Rather rise above than to lay back complacin’
You think you up next but bitch I’m adjacent

Pregnant with success, friends don’t want you to make it
Steady searchin’ for the truth, I don’t gotta chase it
I wish we never met but I cannot erase it

Lie with my [?]
Keep it caribbean when you kick it with my crew
Keep your bloodclot ma quiet I do not f*ck with you
Keep the team on my hip and we stickier than glue
My birthday Halloween so I’m freakier than you
Eatin’ jerk chicken while I’m finessin in the booth
We play the same sport, I don’t smell like you
Get in the same cheese, I don’t melt like you
You cute and all but the combo’s whack
What’s good with that ain’t cool with that
No I can’t relax, no I can’t relapse
Lemme bounce back, where my soldiers at?
With they shoulders back, whatchu lookin at?
No cook crack with that black girl magic
I’m smokin’ Spike Lee joint she just gotta have it
Everybody wanna be black it’s so tragic
Everytime I wear clothes I’m stoppin’ traffic
Everybody here knows I am the baddest
Don’t worry where my hair grow, n*gger the fattest
My nookie my ass tits, I’m never average
Out the f*cking window your career in a casket
Imma hard [?] fried chicken got my eyes low
These bitches so greasy, that’s why I don’t never follow
Style f*ckin’ dated like I’m starin’ at a dino-
Soaring like a spaceship I’m just faded out the front door

Vybz Kartel Publicly Shamed Popcaan With Epic Snub

Vybz Kartel and Popcaan have not made peace despite some recent reporting.

The self-proclaim Worl’Boss celebrated his 42nd birthday on Sunday and a number of his past and current allies took the timeout to wish him a happy birthday on social media. We saw artists like Popcaan, Sean Kingston, Tommy Lee Sparta, Spice, and NotNice post images of Kartel while sending birthday greetings his way. Kartel liked all the posts except for Popcaan and fans took note and criticized him for it.

The Unruly Boss shout-out his former mentor twice during separate performances in the Caribbean over the holidays. But it’s his post on Instagram that causing some fans to speak out. “Popcaan you is a two face snake, you never go visit the boss not once but you trying to get a hype by posting this, leave the boss name out your bad mind mouth,” one fan wrote in the comments.

Sources inside the Gaza told Dancehall HipHop that Popcaan has yet to visit Vybz Kartel behind bars since his incarceration in 2011. We’re also told that he has in the past requested a visit but Kartel denied it. This is a clear sign that these two former friends, who had a father and son-like relationship, are not making peace anytime soon. The below images show Vybz Kartel liking posts from everyone while snubbing Popcaan.

“The boss like everybody posts except for yours yo no have no shame, come off a the man name and stop post up picture with the boss like you and him a friend,” another fan commented.

Wyclef Jean Explains Why He Likes Vybz Kartel So Much, Talks Reggae Influence Globally

Wyclef Jean is a big fan of Vybz Kartel and here is why he has so much respect for the incarcerated dancehall icon.

Clef is currently in Jamaica for the upcoming Shaggy and Friends benefit concert this weekend in Kingston. But before he graced the stage, he had a sit down with Winford Williams on OnStage where he opened up about local talents and the heavy usage of reggae/dancehall in mainstream music currently. Despite the heavy sampling of Jamaican music by international acts, very few local artists are making it to the mainstream like Shaggy and Sean Paul did.

“Do you know why I like Vybz Kartel so much,” Wyclef said. “Because he understands this, at the end of the day right, if I can’t sell you a CD right now and you said man Clef can’t sell music no more but guess what I know I can sell you for sure, a Wyclef guitar.”

The former Fugee frontman spoke at length about Caribbean artists talent and their need to understand the music business fully in order to push their careers to the top. “This is what I want kids to understand, the music business is a 360, when you coming in now create a brand, do not be just an artist no more, become a brand,” he said.

Wyclef Jean also spoke about his new album Carnival 3, going on tour next year, and his presidential bid for Haiti. He started out by clearing up some rumors about his foundation Yele Haiti after a New York-based state attorney conducted an investigation over financial irregularities. Clef said that the whole investigation was a smear campaign to take down his presidential bid. The entire interview was well received with the music icon opening up about a lot of topics. You can see him live this weekend at Shaggy and Friends on the lawns of Jamaica House.

Are Rihanna and Popcaan Working On New Music?

Rihanna and Popcaan stirs up rumors that they are working on new music together.

The pop superstar and teh Unruly Boss were both in Barbados last weekend. Rihanna was on her home soil where she was honored with a street named after her, while Popcaan was there to perform at a concert. RiRi and her BFF Melissa Ford link up with Poppy for a candid photo that has since been making the rounds on social media.

Sources close to the “Work” singer told Dancehall HipHop that the two spoke about working together but so far nothing concrete. “They did spoke about collaborating but nothing concrete yet just the initiation,” sources said. “These are two great Caribbean artists who are fans of each other’s music so naturally they would want to work together. Only time will tell if we will get a song featuring Rihanna and Popcaan.”

Both artists are currently working on new albums so there isn’t a better time for them to drop a collaboration on one of the upcoming projects. Popcaan is close friends with Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend Drake, so if this collab happens lets so how Drizzy will react to it. Last year RiRi had one of the biggest songs on the planet, her dancehall banger “Work” featuring Drake. The video for that single received almost a billion views on YouTube.
