It’s Friday, and we’re so happy that we’re almost ready to scream in excitement. After all, the weekend is ahead, and we probably don’t have to work. For the average person, this means we’re counting down the minutes until we’re free from adult responsibilities and can unwind a little.
I hope that your day is blessed with happiness and joy. Happy Friday to all my dear Friends herein Xenzuu!
Hip-hop has always taken inspiration from Dancehall -- thanks to New York'ssizeable Jamaican population -- and collaborations between the twocommunities have been increasing. But it took Dancehall newcomer Sean Paulto finally close the gap. After a series of collaborations with such artistsas Jay-Z and DMX, Paul's long-awaited sophomore album Dutty Rockburned up clubs all over the world with its stellar combination of grit, glitz and girl-talk. Culturally mongrel, Paul is something...

He was even a top athlete before abandoning water polo for the microphone. We're glad he did. It may not be the deepest lyricism you'll ever encounter, but Paul's mic control is masterful, and as track-swollen as it was, "Dutty Rock" did indeed rock from start to finish. Paul followed up Dutty Rock with The Trinity in 2005.
