Not too long since my last post but daz no scene. I didn't do much either. I was in Highway Studios, yuh know, de place where dey sell strictly local music (Big up to Chromatics ...we will be reviewing his album "Against the grain" soon) looking to pick up some albums from some Underground artistes and breeze out a little bit. I ended up copping the self-titled new album from Word Sound and Power and luckily for me, the second installment of the local dvd magazine Real Talk was available sitting right there on the counter winking at me. Pressure!
Now for those who aren't familiar, Real Talk is a local dvd magazine series in which local artistes are given a platform to speak out their 'real' views about the industry and other things to uniformly hilarious results. In part 1, you had KMC with a belly-busting rant about the industry, Ace from 3 Suns giving his 2 cents on why radio and de industry is mess, Khari Kill on some other issues plus more. However,in part two, things get real 'out ah body'. The highlight of this edition was a passionate rant from KMC focused against our very own local Bill Gates, Tony Chow Lin On aka Chinese Laundry aka the gatekeeper of Trinidad popular music. Hoss, trust me, yuh go real laugh. I honestly thought that KMC was quite heated in part one but he gets in quite a few body shots on Tony in this one. De only thing I laughed harder at was Prophet Benjamin explaining his controversial "Stop Jocking" song. The entertaining part was that even when Prophet got heavy in his bobo shanti jargon that wicked wit still shone through and the classic line was when poor Benjee expressed amazement at some incident in school where dey was teaching the 'benefits' of masturbation. Doh worry Benjee, I feel yuh there son. All I can say now is, when de hell is part three coming out? And dat folks, is real talk.
