It’s a jungle out there and two of the wild cats creating a scene these days are none other than Hip Hop’s leading ladies, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj- both of whom have Trini blood running through their veins. The pair has been seemingly at it for a while but things escalated on the weekend when Cardi B attempted to run into Minaj’s security entourage at a New York Fashion Week event. Instead, she was on the receiving end of a bump to the face all courtesy Minaj’s bodyguards who just wasn’t having it. Of course, Cardi wouldn’t have been satisfied until she took off her shoe and threw it in the direction of the ‘Ganja Burns’ singer. Nicki was not hurt.
Well, it certainly didn’t end there. The banter between these two equally successful rappers continues this week and many have been weighing in on the attempted face off. One of the comments that has however left us all chuckling here in the Caribbean is that of Grenadian-American comedian and actress Amanda Seales.
She, of course, gave her two cents on the topic, expressing a point of view that started with a disclaimer that she does not condone violence, before telling her online viewers that there’s really no right place for a fight to go down. Her final comment, however, gave the Trinidad and Tobago delights Roti and Doubles, some pretty good publicity. We’re cracking up over here!

Buju Celebrates First Birthday Post Release in A Major Way. VIDEO INSIDE.
Mark Myrie, the Jamaican reggae and dancehall giant the world knows best as Buju Banton, has been enjoying his freedom. He was released from US prison, having served a 9-year sentence, in December 2018 and since that time, the artiste’s spirit has been nothing short of triumphant.
On Monday night at the AC Hotel by the Marriott in New Kingston, Jamaica, the artiste celebrated his 45th birthday. He made a grand entry, showing gratitude with hearty smiles at the event which would mark his first official birthday celebration post release. Like fine wine, Buju assented to his 45th birth milestone and even with his simple and humble ways, fans of the artiste could tell that the best was yet to come.
The all white affair saw a number of well known Jamaican friends of the artiste in attendance, among them Sean Paul, Jamaica Deejay and personality Jabba and Romain Virgo. Buju’s Long Walk to Freedom Tour has seen him take stages around the Caribbean including Trinidad and a Tobago and Guyana shows hosted by High a Frequency Entertainment. Most recently, Buju crossed international waters, taking the stage in Amsterdam. His presence on stage, each time, has been nothing short of momentous, and some may say, near spiritual. At his Birthday “get together” on Monday, prior to engaging in chit chat with his friends and family, Buju prayed. It would be a symbol of his gratitude and love to the Most high God for all that he has gotten him through.

She’s a thicky and she ain’t afraid to show it off.

Batson’s physique has proven engrossing to patrons over the past few years, the artiste never shying away from showing skin when she hits the stage. Her latest track, ‘FATT’, on the Caution Riddim, produced by International Stephen and Vibez Productionz is seemingly a ode to the thick girls. She’s been getting that much required nod of approval from the radio personalities in T&T, making it very possible that this single will find its way sailing sweetly into T&T’s carnival 2019.
