NEW!! Dancehall artiste I Octane set to release debut album ‘Crying To The Nation’

Media Release
VP Records and Scikron are proud to announce the release of I-Octane’s debut album, ‘Crying To The Nation,’ available January 31, 2012. ‘Crying To The Nation’ puts I-Octane in a class of his own as one of the next generation’s leaders of the conscious dancehall movement.

Following in a similar vein of his predecessors Sizzla, Capleton and Buju Banton, his lyrics express sentiments of faith, romance, social justice and compassion for the ghetto youth. His brand new single “L.O.V.E Y.O.U,” “Missing You” (remix featuring Assassin aka. Agent Sasco) and “Once More” reflect his emotional sensibility, while songs like “Vanity Will Come,” “All We Need Is Love” (featuring Tarrus Riley) and the title track are filled with positive messages and political leanings, something that the current state of dancehall often lacks.

“I feel good about all the songs I’ve done since I have started out, but this album is very special to me because I got the chance to make the type of songs that I really enjoy and meds the music in a different creative way. My fans will get to see another side of me and after all the challenges I’ve faced in the industry, seeing my first album is a great accomplishment. I give thanks for that,” states I-Octane.

Most of the album’s tracks have never been heard with the exception of the pulsating dancehall anthems “Nuh Love Inna Dem” and “Puff It” as well as “Lose A Friend,” arguably his biggest and most requested song to date. The latter tune hit number #1 on Jamaica’s charts – remaining at the top for approximately 16 weeks – and experienced new life again when Jamaican officials declared a state of emergency after Kingston’s gruesome gang-related attacks.

This year, Billboard magazine enlisted I-Octane as one of their 15 Artists Impacting The Indie Scene. In 2012, ‘Crying To The Nation’ will solidify his position as a multi-faceted reggae artist, proving his reach beyond dancehall with his added repertoire of touching love songs and cultural tunes. This refreshing approach to the genre holds a bright future for the ever-evolving artist.

Clovis and Kartel feud continues…


by Natalie Monique

So apparently, there is a subtle feud brewing, between longtime Jamaica Observer cartoonist, Clovis and popular Jamaican Dancehall DJ Vybz Kartel. It is alleged that the cartoonist has been poking fun at Kartel, and the controversial DJ has not been taking kindly to it….

The popular cartoonist is known in Jamaica to make hilarious cartoons based on current trending topics. He recently created one in reference to Kartel’s ‘new’ skin color. In response, Vybz Kartel decided to use his own artistic skills to throw one at Clovis…and we thought that was it….

Then came another of Clovis depiction of Kartel, where he is looking for the ‘cake soap’ to wash his face, but his lady is using it to wash clothes (which is the true usage for this soap, keep sparkling).

Sources reported that this (above) was Kartel’s response to Clovis, suggesting, he is just jealous of him, because he has an underpaying job….

Clovis then reveals one (above) showing Kartel as a Vampire in a coffin, filled with Cake soap, and he also included University of the West Indies lecturer Carolyn Cooper, who couple weeks ago invited the DJ to lecture on Tattoos, at the University, which had caused much controversy as well.

The controversial illustrator recently released another brand new Kartel drawing (below). It shows Kartel walking into the Jamaica Stadium, during the recent annual Boys’ Championship, carrying an umbrella (It is alleged that when one is bleaching their skin, they must avoid direct sunlight, lol)….with the seating options of Bleachers or Grandstand..I can’t with ALL this!!!!

The social commentator continues to do his job in his own unique way, many times at the cost of those who have become his ‘subject’….Some journalists write, and some draw I guess?
