Words by Jesse Serwer, Photos by Tono—

On Wednesday night, Large Up brought the bashment to Winter Music Conference with the first ever Miami edition of New York’s famed Rice and Peas party, featuring a special performance from Mr. Vegas. Rice and Peas DJs Orijahnal Vibez, Max Glazer, DJ Gravy and DJ Maya set the tone for the night with top-notch dancehall selections while super MC Micro Don got the crowd hype with his mic chatter, Mixpak Records chief/Vybz Kartel producer Dre Skull took things to the left with some tropical bass and Trinidadian swimwear designer Elysia Persad debuted her Colly Dolly brand with a brief runway show. Everything, of course, built up to Mr. Vegas’ set, which featured the expected medley of classic hits like “Heads High” and “She’s a Ho.”

LargeUp x Rice and Peas x WMC x Mr. Vegas in Miami (3/21)

Words by LargeUp Crew—

Each March, Winter Music Conference brings what feels like a majority of the world’s DJs to Miami but amongst all the house, trance and occasional hip-hop going on, dancehall always seems to get left out of the mix. To remedy the situation, this year LargeUp is bringing New York City’s best dancehall party, Rice and Peas, to Ricochet in Miami during WMC. Even better, the event, on Wed. March 21, doubles as a release party for Mr. Vegas’ Sweet Jamaica LP, an easy frontrunner for the year’s best reggae/dancehall album in our collective opinion.

Hot This Year: Watch Popcaan’s “Only Man She Want” Video + Stream “Get Gyal Easy”

Words by Emily Shapiro—

In 2011, Portmore native Popcaan went from Vybz Kartel sidekick on “Clarks” to dancehall superstar. He released hits like “Raving” and “Clean” and now in the first week of 2012, he is showing us that he has no intention of slowing down. He’s just released the official video for “Only Man She Wants” and hit us with “Get Gyal Easy,” his latest single. His first tune produced by Kingston Story producer Dre Skull, “Get Gyal Easy” is a chilled out song in which Popcaan shows off his true vocal talent. The new video, meanwhile, is a fairly literal translation of the lyrics to “Only Man She Wants,” in which Popcaan is the object of affection of a very voluptuous woman with a very jealous boyfriend. It appears that the woman, clad only in a corsette and panties, has shown Popcaan her undying love by lending him a gold leopard cardigan, which he models throughout the video. After you check the video below, stream “Gyal Get Easy” and get it on iTunes here.

Audio: Hear Clipse’s Pusha T Rhyme on Vybz Kartel’s “Half on A Baby”

Words by Jesse Serwer

Due to all of the ensuing madness in Vybz Kartel’s life since then, it’s easy to forget that he released a pretty good album just this past summer in the Dre Skull-produced Mixpak Records release, Kingston Story. But one single from that album, Kartel’s “Half On a Baby” is still gaining legs, now with an official remix featuring Clipse’s Pusha T.
