106 & Carnival: BET Gets Ready For Di Road

Words by Natalie Weiner

106-Carnival-BET-Bunji-Elephant-Man

It’s Carnival Week in New York, and pretty much everyone has already gotten the party started, including BET’s eternal 106 & Park—or, as it was titled today, “106 & Carnival,” complete with slightly uncomfortable-looking hosts in mas band costumes. The episode featured a mix of up-and-coming and veteran dancehall, reggae, and soca artists in front of an audience repping just about every part of the Caribbean.

LargeUp Premiere: Lucas D – “Make My Rounds”

Words by Jesse Serwer

Lucas-D-Make-My-Rounds

This past spring, Canadian teenager Lucas Di Pasquale became an unlikely Internet sensation with his acoustic cover medley of songs by dancehall star Popcaan. While dancehall fans worldwide were won over by Lucas’ earnest, emotive take on Hot Skull tunes like “Party Shot,” and “Only Man She Want”, it was in Jamaica where the Toronto native and his impressive command of patois drew the biggest response. This summer saw Lucas touch down on Jamaican soil, where he appeared on the nation’s top celebrity interview program OnStage TV and took the stage during Popcaan’s set at Dream Weekend, turning in one of the most talked-about appearances during the Negril all-inclusive.
