You Rate It: Tommy Lee’s “Goathead” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer—

If you follow dancehall, you’ve probably heard about Bounty Killer’s recent comments about Tommy Lee Sparta, and his “Gothic Dancehall” style. Lee has now issued his response in the form of the new single “Goathead,” going after the Grung Gaad with a statement even stronger than we’d imagined. Tommy Lee’s emergence as dancehall’s hot-button artist has been swift and, up until now, he’s avoided clashing. In fact, when I met him this summer he intimated to me that the intent of his demonic lyrics is to serve as a warning for other artists to stay far from him, rather than to be taken literally.  It will be interesting to see if he’s cut out for this clashing thing, when Bounty inevitably responds. Now that all eyes in dancehall are on him, many people will be coming for him, even his own camp.

We Ah Di Best: DJ Khaled x Mavado Medley Video + Khaled’s Reggae Roots

Words by Jesse Serwer—

mavado-birdman-dj-khaled

As you may have heard, Mavado has joined DJ Khaled’s We the Best Music Group and, by extension, the YMCMB empire. After releasing his first track through the new situation in December, “Emergency,” Mavado is featured on a pair of tunes from Khaled’s Kiss the Ring, which drops tomorrow. “Suicidal Thoughts” and “Actionpak,” gathered here in a new medley video with cameos from Birdman and a surprisingly silent Khaled, fall at opposite ends of the spectrum musically. The Boi-1da-produced “Suicidal Thoughts” is a hip-hop track with big, up-front drums while “Action Pak” is some straight up dancehall business. Watch the clip below:
