Once again we’re back with the Boomshots. What—you thought we took time off for the holidaze? Thanksgiving is not a day with us, it’s a way of life. So here come some big heavy tunes to make the dance mash up like your mom’s potatoes. 

First up is a DJ who goes by many names. Some call him the Doctor, some call him Moses, and some get mad when calls himself the title King of The Dancehall. But it’s hard to argue when the man drops a riddim with eight different tracks, and he’s killing each and every one. MD Entertainment’s brand new Beenie Man & Friends riddim features D’Angel, Ding Dong, Wada & Andrew Blood, Fambo & Deva Bratt, Kantana, and a new artist named CeeGee. But the baddest track of them all has to be Beenie Man & Khago “Want A Search.” The song sketches a scenario similar to Jay-Z‘s “99 Problems” except the substance in question is ganja rather than coke, and the road runs through Jamaica rather than America. And instead of talking slick to the officer, Beenie tells him “Bwoy reverse—and look inna tha nozzle yah.” Squeeze off…

 

One of the biggest JA street anthems of 2010 is “Straight Jeans & Fitted” by Vybz Kartel feat. Russian. Best known as a producer for the Portmore Empire, Tarik ‘Russian’ Johnston  stepped into the vocal booth for the first time on this Head Concussion release. And judging by the tune’s massive impact, it won’t be his last. The tune was so big it even inspired a hilarious answer tune from Trevor Offkey. But the flossing don’t stop. Run that…

Ever since she burst on the scene with the feisty tune “Changes” Cecile has been a Bad Gyal. She seems like the type of chick who doesn’t have too many female friends. But I personally am not mad at her. Just take a listen to this cut from the Railup Riddim and you’ll understand why. Take that…
