EME Awards

6 Feb

Thought I should take a moment to mention that the EME awards took place on Thursday and if I’d pulled it together, I would have gotten a pass and covered it from the trenches. Then maybe I could finally of asked Vybz what REALLY went down with him KYM and Lisa Hyper. Just kidding… dude kinda makes me nervous. BUT not so nervous that I’d pass up the opportunity to poke fun at his babymaking ass, so peep Captain Barkey’s satire of Vybz here. In true form for sure. Thanks to Erin Macleod for that. Also, Busy Signal was absent from the EME’s and mysteriously unmentioned in the award winners section while Vybz racked it in and Mavado took “Best Singjay”. Also missing from awards, Aidonia, but I have a feeling 2010 will be his year. I wanna mention Flexxx– and Tifa– walked away with “Most Improved Artist” which secures my premonitions that he’ll go far this next year. I’ll list all the winners below, but lastly I wanna say Stephen “Di Genius” walked away with “Best Dancehall Producer” which in my opinion, he is more then deserving of, and damn if there aren’t some good producers popping up everywhere between Russian, Ainsley Morris, Equinoxx and Chimney. Lastly, lastly, big ups to Chino on his “Breakthrough Artist” Award. Can’t wait for the album to drop.
