We’re pleased to announce that Popcaan’s ‘The System’, produced by Dre Skull, will be on rotation at MTV Jams from this weekend! Watch out for it!
Ok, so it’s not exactly a vintage video, this is a brand new documentary about Yo MTV Raps, the first and best show to bring hip hop to commercial television. Hear the creators, the participators, famous fans talk about the legendary show, amongst archive footage. Watching all the original shows is also highly recommended.
MTV Iggy’s Jesse Serwer caught up with Dre to ask him “how a quiet, shy, white guy with no connections ended up working with dancehall’s most notorious star?” Good question, right?
Vybz Kartel’s “Go Go Wine” video continues to make an impact. In the US, you can catch it in rotation on MTV Jams, VH1 Soul or demand it on Music Choice. In the UK, it’s been showing on MTV, Channel AKA, and on Virgin On Demand. Drop us a note on twitter or facebook and let us know if you’ve seen it on TV.
Large Up editor Jesse Serwer interviews Vybz Kartel for the MTV Iggy site, talking about his upcoming reality show, ‘Teacher’s Pet’, Clarks, strip clubs, his plans for another Dre Skull album, and find out what he’s reading right now.
Vybz also phoned into Tim Westwood’s show on BBC 1Xtra earlier this week. Always a pleasure to hear Westwood’s interview style: ‘your swagger’s intense baby’. It’s only available to listen back for a few day, don’t miss it.
