Tyler, the Creator Speak On DJ Khaled Beef Over No. 1 Album

Published

on

Tyler, the Creator addressed a small beef with DJ Khaled over his number one album, Igor.

Tyler, the Creator says he is proud of what he was able to accomplish with his latest album, Igor. The Odd Future rapper’s newest self-produced LP went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts in its first week after the May 17 release date. The project outsold DJ Khaled’s album, Father of Asahd, that was released the same day, and that sparked a feud between the two rapper’s camps.

Tyler recently sat down with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to talk about Igor’s underdog success. The 28-year-old artist said going No. 1 wasn’t a goal of his and he was surprised at how well Igor was received.

“When I put this out and it beat first week … and I don’t make sh*t to be first week or to be radio, whatever. But for this work of art, and that album cover and these videos and me doing this suit/wig thing beat … and this is no disrespect to Khaled or anything … But this n*gga had every person in the industry. Everyone on that f**king album. Everyone, everyone – Cardi B, 21 Savage, Travis Scott, Post Malone, Beyonce, Jay – everyone who sells billions of records. And the fact that I beat him with this, that isn’t parallel to all the popping music right now, was f**king crazy bro.”

DJ Khaled was reportedly very unhappy with the second-place slot. When it was announced that Father of Asahd went Number 2, the usually positive and joyous producer and made a very mysterious Instagram post-and-delete seeming to shade Tyler’s project, saying he makes album so people can play them and “actually hear it.” “It’s called great music. It’s called albums that you actually hear the songs. Not no mysterious sh*t and you never hear it,” he said.

Page Six reported Khaled threw a fit inside his label for allegedly miscalculating his album sales. A representative from Khaled’s camp told the Fader that the 43-year-old hip-hop mogul was frustrated with Billboard’s calculation methods.

Meanwhile, Tyler, the Creator, speaking out for the first time since the Khaled drama, said he was grateful to see his hard work pay off.

“I’m so proud of myself.”

Demarco ‘The Dancehall Rick Ross’ Details Massive 80 Pounds Weight Loss

Published

Demarco, aka the Rick Ross of dancehall, lost a ton of weight and now he is detailing his fitness regime.

Multi-talented dancehall artist Demarco recently returned to Jamaica from the United States looking a lot slimmer than before. The deejay/producer sat down with Anthony Miller of Entertainment Report where he detailed his massive weight loss. The artiste, who boasts hits such as “True Friends” and “Fallen Soldier,” spoke about his skills, which include producing.

Demarco mentions that he is the creator of the riddim “Jambe An,” which features the Diamond selling hit song “Party Animal” by Charly Blacks. He shared his new-found knowledge of the music industry, stating that music goes beyond just merely making music and performing on stage. There is the production aspect, as well as what comes after, such as song royalties and publishing. 

Demarco, who firmly believes that he cannot fail in the music industry, set himself on a pedestal securing his future by establishing a publishing company and a record label. He can also add songwriter to his repertoire as he has co-written a new dancehall song for Rihanna who has recently been dubbed the richest musician in the world. Maro also currently has a new song with Yanique Curvy Diva. 

So it is without a doubt that Demarco is truly a remarkable dancehall artist. But his greatest accomplishment yet has nothing to do with music but is in fact about his incredible weight loss. The artist highlighted that “slim is in,” and he has lost about 80 lbs to date. He is currently a vegetarian and makes time in his busy schedule to visit the gym 2 to 3 times per week. The artist stated that good health is essential. He also strives to maintain an appealing appearance for his female fans. 

The artist who has been diagnosed with diabetes is making the right choices to be a better person and live a better life. His mind-blowing transformation renders many speechless, leaving them in awe. The artist who prides himself as a genuine singer says that even when his music does not circulate in Jamaica, it will still receive international success and recognition. He also shares the same sentiments with popular dancehall legend Sean Paul saying that speaking proper English is important in crossing over. The chorus of your song has to be easily understood for your song to make it in the International market. The artist closed by saying he currently weighs about 230 lbs, and his ultimate goal is to be 200 lbs, but he has no time limitations on achieving it. 

Be on the lookout for his upcoming collaboration with Chronic Law and to see where his incredible weight loss journey will take him.

Konshens Drops “Dancehall Love Story” Visual And It’s Pure Fire

What’s your dancehall love story?

Konshens is once again the talk of the town, and this time it’s for his music and not what he is wearing. The dancehall artiste dropped a new song titled “Dancehall Love Story” on his Vevo channel. The track, which was released on Friday, already has nine thousand views and climbing. The video for the song is pretty impressive, and it is not your typical music video but comes across as more of a short film.

The concept of the video is basically about two friends who visit Jamaica on vacation from abroad. One of the women, who was hesitant about coming to Jamaica meets a local man at a party, and they hit it off. This begins the dancehall love story, and the video chronicles their time together during the trip.

The song was produced by Submachine, Ridwaan Razak and Y.G.F Records is lining up to be the ultimate song to close out the summer. Konshens did hit all the right notes with this one but should’ve released it earlier in the summer.

The track gives off major Vybz Kartel vibes and is one that will surely do well on the international market. It is a high energy, feel-good love song with great lyrics and is just what we have come to expect from the deejay.

Konshens has been in the public eye for some time now due to his back and forth drama with local artiste I-Octane and Demarco for their criticisms about his fashion choices and his decision to pierce his nose.

Hopefully, this song is just the beginning of more to come from this talented artiste.

Check out the music video below.

Popcaan Treats 500 Kids With Back To School Supplies In St. Thomas

Published

By

OVO Dancehall artiste, Popcaan hosted his ‘Off to School Treat’ for kids this Thursday, August 22 in his home parish of St. Thomas, Jamaica.

Following the recent spectacle at Spice’s Back-to-School Drive powered by the Grace Hamilton Women’s Foundation where the demand far outweighed the supply, other dancehall artistes announced that they too would be hosting back to school charitable events. Among these announcers was St Thomas native, Popcaan.

Poppy promised that the first 500 kids would get a bag of back to school treats and supplies courtesy of the Popcaan Care Foundation. Based on the recordings of the event online, it was an enormous success. The turn out exceeded expectations and Popcaan did not disappoint as he held a free concert during which he surprised the audience with performances by Jafrass, Quada, and Chronic Law.

The unruly deejay could not have procured a better closing act for his St. Thomas audience as Chronic Law is currently one of the most sought after performers in Jamaica and also a crowd favorite. The event catered to the kids during the day as well with clowns, face painting, raffles, live DJs, train rides, and even a carousel.

Popcaan really went all out to ensure the event would be successful. The deejay, of course, took the stage himself, which was a welcomed surprise for his fans who squealed with excitement and sang along to his hit songs.

If it is the intention of the Popcaan Care Foundation to make this Off to School Treat an annual event, then fans of the deejay as well as the parents will benefit tremendously. It’s great to see more artistes joining the social responsibility club. At this rate, we will pull together enough resources to support more families and make the start of the school year a lot easier for parents and more bearable for the kids.
