Armed with the stronghold support of her Caribbean base and the superstar touch of producer Salaam Remi (Nas, Fugees, Amy Winehouse), the original "Queen Of SOCA" - ALISON HINDS is enjoying a warm welcome worldwide. From Hot 97 in New York, to BBC in England, to Much Music in Canada, ALISON's summer burner "Roll It Gal" is gaining major momentum during the early stages of its global launch, setting the stage for the fall release of her debut album, aptly titled "SOCA QUEEN" on (1720 Entertainment/Black Coral).

CHOW DOWN: KC Jockey to appear in BET's new mini-series "Where My Ladies At"

"Brooklyn Gone Hollywood"....... Stilletos Off to you KC Jockey!

KC Jockey makes a rare debut appearance on the Red Carpet on South Beach....mingling with industry heavy hitters - Scott Storch, Fat Joe, Robin Thicke, Big D, and the NuJersey Devil were all out in full force!

View Celebrity pics here

The rebirth of slick was dubbed in the hip hop world to the Digable Planets. Its a new order and a new regime for KC Jockey, I call this the "Rebirth of Swag". Apparently this artist has a strong management team behind him - CEO of his own indie label 'Sweet Sadies Productions'. If I did not know any better his management is molding him into the next Benzino, P. Diddy or even Jay Z - now thats what I call Rebirth of Swag. The streets have been buzzing for the past months with the highly anticipated comeback of KC Jockey who left us wanting more after Diggy Diggy, Tic Toc and Look Good Machine. He has not been sleeping on us afterall he has been hard at work in the studios and not just the studio with mixing boards, sound pads and microphones but the ones with directors and film sets. I am talking about the studios, film houses and acting rolls.

KC Jockey used his natural swagger to appear in the upcoming mini-series 'Where My Ladies At' on Black Entertainment Networks (BET) launching August 1, 2007. The mini-series is an interactive documentary that follows the lives of a struggling rapper, a former porn star and a well known video girl on their struggle for fame in real time over a period of 30 days. This is not an ordinary domentary or reality show the viewing audience can write in with their comments and the characters in the mini-series actually write back. What is KC Jockey's roll in all of this? He does what comes natural, he plays himself in an audition for a music video. If you ask me, this roll is a perfect fit.

KC Jockey is determined to be a household name following in the footsteps of fellow artists, Wil Smith, Mos Def, Tyrese and T.I. who pursued their musical careers and intergrated their showmanship into acting on the big screen, the world is yours KC Jockey, stilletos off to you!

CHOW DOWN: Attempted Murder? Rapper Remy Ma Alleged in Shooting of Childhood Friend

Lexi Chow's : CHOW DOWN... Hip Hop Celebrityvibes flava

Wow, talk about the true ladies of hip hop under the gun and no pun intended! On July 15, 2007, Rapper Remy Ma from the Boogie Down Bronx surrendered and turned herself in for allegations of attempted murder, assault and various weapons charges of her long time childhood friend Makeda Barnes-Joseph who was shot twice in the torso. The two had a dispute over $2,000 that was found missing from Remy's purse sources say that Ms. Barnes-Joseph had asked Remy to borrow $2,000 in which Remy may have or may have not wanted to lend her. Apparently, towards the end of the night Remy was $2,000 short.

That is just about too suspect if you ask me. Remy tried to give her friend the benefit of the doubt, but could not because her friend had stolen from her in the past and Remy forgave her. I am sure words were exchanged at the heat of the moment from both parties. Sources say that Remy does not [allegedly] own a gun and no one knows where the gun came from or who shot Ms. Barnes-Joseph. Remy's bail was set for $250,000 and is due in court August 14.

If I were Remy, you damn right I would be highly upset that my friend asked me for $2,000 and just by chance it got up and walked out of my purse. Personally I have had friends steal from me before and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth…wow is this a coincidence or an incident? You tell me!

Three of Jah Cure's performances cancelled

Jah Cure... The world is waiting patiently for you.......

Nuh care weh anybody try ......they cannot hold back great music.....

Jah Cure's management, Danger Zone Records, has made the decision to cancel the three Jah Cure performances in the Caribbean scheduled for September, so that Curefest (October 12-14) will be Jah Cure's 1st performance in that region.

"At the time the dates in Grenada, St. Maarten and Tortola were confirmed, Curefest was set for August and would have been Cure's 1st Caribbean performance. Now that Curefest has moved to October because of Jamaica's elections, we feel that Jamaican's have a right to be the first Caribbean fans to have a chance to see Jah Cure live, so have cancelled the dates in September" explains Delmar Drummond of Danger Zone Records.

Vegas hospitalized with heart problems again

MR. Vegas Celebrityvibes is praying for you.......

Bwoy people........ Vegas is a good artiste.... just pray fi him because it can happen to anyone of us......

International recording star Vegas has been hospitalized in the Tony Thwaites Wing at the Univeristy Hospital of the West Indies since Tuesday of this week.

Reliable sources has informed One876Entertainment that the singjay had been complaining of chest pains and was admitted, and a battery of tests run on his heart condition. Chances are that he could miss this year’s Red Stripe Reggae Sumfest because of his medical condition, but his camp is holding out for a positive prognosis from doctors.

The singjay's Hot Wuk number one single featuring Opal and Hottaball is blowing up on urban radio stations in the USA like HOT97, Royal Radio, et al. In April, Vegas missed a number of engagements after doctors ordered him to take two weeks bed rest after being diagnosed with pericarditis, which is an inflammation of the lining around the heart (the pericardium) causing chest pain and accumulation of fluid around the heart.

One876Entertainment wishes the singjay a speedy and successful recovery.

RDX denies death threats from Frass Crew

RDX..... Frass Crew...what a gwaan man...... Lets live in Love!!!

Source: Press Release R&R Records

There is a news release circulating on the internet and within certain media houses regarding an altercation between dancehall duo RDX, known for their hit single DANCE and Daddy Frass and the Frass Crew.

The story stated that, RDX (DJ Regnigade adn singer Delomar) were pulled into a yard at the popular DUTTY FRIDAZE spot in Fletcher's Land Kingston, Jamaica and threatened by gunmen affiliated with Daddy Frass and the Fras Crew.

Lester Gayle of R&R Records, the management team for RDX has come out boldly and denied all these reports. "What really happened was that dancer Sick N Head of Frass Crew has a beef with dancer Doctor Bird formerly of Timeless Dancers. The vibes is that RDX's latest single EVERYBODY DANCE' lyrics included Doctor Bird's dance move NEW YORK and not Sick N Head's NO RE ENTRY dance move which is alleged to be the same dance move."

Mr Gayle continued "The Long and Short is RDX is an artiste, they do music, and have always promoted unity amongst dancers. But in regards to this alleged incident, RDX were not threatened, no guns were pulled, the volume was probably turned up nut no violent or offensive remarks were mentioned. It was just a reasoning between man and man in a gully manner. So whosoever it was who wrote that report, need to get their facts straight and be more responsible with what they write and publish. DUTTY FRIDAZE is RDX's second home, so it is virtually impossible for them to get dissed in Fletcher's Land."

Mr Gayle further stated that RDX is at war with Frass Crew or anybody else for that matter, we are all co-workers in music and will not advocate this 'çrab inna barell' mentality which is prominent among some artistes within the industry.

Lawd have mercy.... anoda vibes again...come on now artiste do better than that man... the world is watching us.....

Busta Rhymes To Face Four Trials In New York

Lawd have mercy Busta.....Yuh salt Yuh salt ......

Busta Rhymes will face a string of trials for assault and driving violations after prosecutors lost a bid on Tuesday to consolidate four cases against the performer into one case.

Rhymes, 34, who has been arrested four times since last summer, gave his defense attorney a celebratory "high five" hand slap after Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Larry Stephen rejected the prosecution's argument to combine the cases.

The separate cases will be tried consecutively, with an opening date to be set at a September 5 hearing, the Manhattan District Attorney's office said.

The judge gave no public explanation for his decision, and the court papers have been ordered kept private and under seal on grounds that they detail the defense strategy.

"The decision today validates the defense's argument," said defense attorney Scott Leemon, who would not elaborate.

Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor Smith, was arrested most recently on May 3 on suspicion of drunk driving.

Earlier this year, he was arrested for driving with a suspended license, and on a separate occasion on suspicion of assaulting his personal driver.

In August 2006 he was arrested for allegedly beating up a man who reportedly spit on his car.

Also in court on Tuesday, Rhymes turned down, for a second time, a plea deal that would have sent him to jail for one year in exchange for a guilty plea to four misdemeanor charges.

He turned down a similar deal at a hearing in May.

Bob Marley's ex-manager convicted on drug charge


People I was reading this on .... about Bob Marley's ex-manager being find for possesion of

KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters) - A former best friend and one-time manager of Reggae superstar Bob Marley was convicted on marijuana charges at the end of a seven-day trial late on Monday.

Former Jamaica football player Allan Cole, known as "Skill" because of his soccer abilities, was sentenced to 18 months in prison and fined J$1.015 million ($15,150) after being found guilty of possession of marijuana, dealing in marijuana and attempting to export the drug.

Cole's attorney Patrick Atkinson notified the court that his client would appeal and he was released on J$2 million ($29,850) bond.

Cole rose to prominence in 1966 by becoming the youngest schoolboy to represent Jamaica at football when he wore the national jersey against Haiti at 15 years and four months -- a record that still stands.

He played several years for Jamaica and also became the first Jamaican to land a professional contract in Brazil, playing for division one team Nautico in 1972.

But it was Cole's association with Marley that brought him even more fame.

Cole in published interviews said that he helped the Reggae star write seven of his hit songs, including "Exodus."

Cole was arrested on February 2, 2002, after police raided his house in the Jamaican capital and found 60 cartons of compressed marijuana, weighing 149 kg (328.5 lbs).

Cole, who maintained his innocence, said he was set up.

Mavado fined in Barbados

Lawd have Mercy ...awah gwaan?????

Hi People,

Wah kinda foolishness gwaan ....dis yah business need a clean up bwoy.....!! read this

One876Entertainment understands that Jamaican dancehall artiste Mavado admitted in the Bridgetown Traffic court on Monday that it was a member of his security team who threw the first punch that resulted in a brawl and stone-flinging fracas in Barbados over the weekend.

The resulting brawl left two members of the security team, Michael Kevin Marsh 34, and David Joseph Hunter injured. Mavado, whose real name is David Brooks, and his cousin, Sammer Coombs, 22, an entertainer were not injured.

Seven people were charged in connection with the incident that stemmed from what was a promise to do dub plates.

According to the website, all four Jamaicans, admitted they used unlawful violence and their conduct was such as would cause others present to fear for their personal safety. Coombs admitted assaulting Jimal Edwards, causing actual bodily harm.

They were reprimanded and discharged and ordered to pay $500 costs to the court immediately. In addition, Coombs was ordered to pay $200 compensation to Edwards immediately. The monies were paid.

"Was all of this necessary?" asked Magistrate Christopher Birch. "All of this over music? I thought music was supposed to unite people. Mavado explained he was in Barbados to promote himself and his music, said he was driving through Bridgetown when some "crazy people" surrounded the vehicle.

Someone asked him for a dub plate and he said yes, all the while signing autographs.

"But we didn't really have an agreement or we really didn't talk no price," he said. Prosecutor Sergeant Glenda Carter said arrangements were made for local group Super Sounds to buy a dub plate for $1800. “When the local artistes went to collect, an argument ensued in which Coombs struck Edwards in the face. A fight followed, in which stones and other objects were thrown causing guests to scamper,” the prosecutor’s statements read.

The fracas at the hotel reportedly started when Mavado's cousin, Coombs complained he was attacked by some "yutes". When Movado went to see them, they rushed him "so my cousin run in front me and him chuck him off and that is what caused the whole commotion". The magistrate made references to the simmering feud between Beenie Man and Bounty Killer in Jamaica, and its implications for dancehall music and society.

"I have watched with interest and alarm the situation in Jamaican music. It wasn't long ago Bennie Man and Bounty Killa could not walk the streets without bullets flying," the magistrate said. "I would not want the Brotherhood in the region to descend to this again."

Michael Lashley, who represented the four, pleaded for anything other than a prison conviction. "I ask that you impose a fine or you can give them a very strong warning," he said. Calling the incident unfortunate, Lashley said Mavado, who had shows on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, had missed his flight out of the island as a result. Three other Bajans were released on bail and are set to return to court October 29 with Mavado.
