Dancehall artiste Jay-5 Flow launched a scathing criticism of fellow artiste Double X – formerly known as Flexx of T.O.K. – who he accused of backbiting Vybz Kartel by saying that Kartel is getting too much airplay while other artistes are being neglected
“Why would an artiste say that about a next artiste? We don’t know if Kartel is actually recording in prison and whether or not, he is an innocent man behind serving time behind bars for a crime he did not commit, so to pass a remarks like that is a real low blow. Why try to limit a next man’s earning power, especially as an artiste against another artiste? Double X should not have commented, him sound like him bad mind,” Jay 5 Flow said.
Former T.O.K member Flexx, otherwise known as Double X, has come under fire from fans and associates of incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel for stating that the incarcerated deejay should not be allowed to record songs behind bars.
During an interview on Anthony Miller’s Entertainment Report, Double X had complained that it was unfair that Vybz Kartel still receives so much airplay when other hard-working recording artistes have struggled to get their music aired on local radio and even in the dancehall.
In the meantime, Jay5 Flow is aggressively promoting his new single and video, ‘One Chance’ which has racked up thousands of views and impressions online.
The song jumped to #7 on the FIWI Choice top ten chart, which airs on TVJ on Saturdays, and it is also #6 on the Blacker Top 20 countdown chats on FLOW TV.
“The video is getting play in markets in Europe, Central and South America, and the single is available online through VPAL, I love the feedback so far, especially in the Spanish-speaking countries like Panama, Belize and Venezuela,” he said.
The single is also getting rotation on IRIE, Suncity Radio and HITZ FM. Several online radio stations in Panama have also picked up the song.
Released on the Chase Mills Records label, the single has been boosted by the release of a video chock full of cavorting big-busted girls in bikinis, and scenes out of the feverish testosterone-fuelled dreams of a typical male teenager.
The single, which appears on the Drugz riddim alongside dancehall heavyweights such as Beenie Man, and Masicka. Last year, Jay-5 made his debut appearance on the biggest dancehall/reggae one-night show, Sting, based on the strength of ‘Dancehall Macarena’ that racked up 700,000 plus views on YouTube.
