Ultimate Rejects Drops Another Bomb. MX Prime Says It’s Never Been About Winning A Title.

Published

He said he knew, just after winning the Road March title in 2017 that the powers that be, whoever they are, would never again allow it to happen. MX Prime, the man respected most by who understand him best, for his unapologetic truths, has done what least would have expected. He has released yet another Carnival 2018 anthem, merely two weeks away from Carnival Monday.

MX Prime says this song and every other tune delivered, were not written for Road March glory. 

MX Prime and his Ultimate Rejects brothers on Monday morning said their new release, and even those delivered before, has absolutely nothing to do with the Carnival competitions. The group appeared on the Red HOT Morning show on RED96.7FM with Rachel Price, Richard Trumpet and TimTim, releasing a track called simply, “For The People.”

Last week, Price lashed out at radio DJs and a particular urban radio station, arguing that Machel Montano’s song, collaborated on with Super Blue, “Soca Kingdom”, had been getting an unfair advantage as a result of the number of times it was being played by DJs who she again pounced on this morning. The Road March champs however seem unfazed by the present state of Soca music affairs in Trinidad and Tobago. The Ultimate Rejects remained adamant that the music should be for the people and so, with that, they unleashed what could be their final contribution for the Carnival 2018 season.

Meanwhile, there was reiteration of the issue of “pay for play” on another urban frequency this evening. Artiste and radio personality, Smooth opened the trivial can of worms during his talk show- the Make Up Or Break Up Show. There was an admission that the situation is real, with two of the frequencies DJs admitting that they had been approached by artistes who wanted to pay them to play their music. They however said, the unethical option was not entertained.

Check out the brand new release, for the people, delivered earlier today by The Ultimate Rejects! Remember, UR will be at Army Fete this Friday at the Queen’s Park Savannah! Tickets are said to be going fast and organizers expect another blockbuster event with the likes of Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin and Asylum and Kees, set to perform.

Nailah Blackman Unleashes Pure Sweetness With The Iron in Mind.

Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival is nothing without the sweet sound of the steel pan. Paying homage to the great men and women, and even youngsters who live their lives passionately beating the percussion instrument, the granddaughter of Ras Shorty I, Nailah Blackman, has unleashed a brand new track that’s both aesthetically pleasing and rhythmically hot, and we’re here for it!

On Monday, the hit maker, who only shot to fame about a year and a half ago, delivered her new release via LIVE social media  updates, showing fans of Soca that their music can reach them beyond the traditional radio airwaves. The new track, “Iron Love”,  features the Laventille Rhythm Section, and was produced by Anson Soverall.

Nailah’s been extremely consistent musically, over the past year. Her breakthrough onto the mainstream Soca circuit alongside Kees Dieffenthaller in 2017, certainly gave her the thrust she needed, and she hasn’t stopped since. Her collaborations with Jamaica’s Shenseea, Tarrus Riley and Ding Dong, have each placed her in categories that add to her musical profile, leveraging her as a Caribbean female artiste that isn’t afraid to grow beyond what she started off as.

Blackman’s vocals have also been featured on a single with Bosnian-born Swedish DJ and producer Salvatore Ganacci. That track’s called, “Kill A Sound Boy”.

Now, check out Iron Love. Be sure to let us know how you rate this one, in our comments section below the story.

There’s something about Caribbean people’s strong desire to share the culture of these parts with the world. For Juliana Fermin and her team of just a few, the passion to showcase the beauty of Trinidad and Tobago and by extension, the Caribbean’s culture, is unparalleled.

On the heels of their mid-year sail to Europe with the likes of Shurwayne Winchester, Turner, Preedy, Nailah Blackman and even Jamaica’s Charly Black, Fermin’s Soca on the Seas brand immediately shot into action, delivering an AfroSoca themed cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas. This time, she sought out some of the Caribbean’s like minded culture promoters, acts like Barbados’ Edwin Yearwood, Eddie Charles of the A Team Band, Doggy Slaughter who would double up as Dj and artist, St. Lucia’s multi faceted, Ricky T, young artistes, Turner and Erphaan Alves, and even Chutney Soca Monarch Kings Neval Chatelal and Nishard B. That wasn’t all though. The team would not have been satisfied if they hadn’t gotten the latest hit maker to surface and shock the soca circuit- none other than Problem Child.

From October 8th – one day after Miami Carnival, to Friday October 12th, the Soca on the Seas family brought complete strangers together and it was aboard this amazing 4 night cruise that many who had never heard of Soca or Trinidad and Tobago, or even carnival, would get a first hand introduction to the vibe of what is now a globally expressed feeling of euphoria that can only be experienced.
