RIP MR VEGAS…NOT REALLY, HE’S JUST SUPPOSED TO BE RETIRING   3 comments

 

Mr Vegas

Mr Vegas

Mr Vegas fucking rocks. He is one of the best dancehall vocalists ever and has more hit songs than your mom did hits of acid when she was pregnant with you. Yeah. Anyway, we thought it was appropriate to do a retrospective of this legend leading up to his induction into the non-existent dancehall hall of fame. He is supposed to be retiring but he has kept on making songs so apparently he is not, yet. Cop these tracks: 

Mr Vegas – I am Blessed (zshare)

The video for this song is pretty crazy. Basically it is Mr Vegas in a backwards chase scene. Big tchune. Super upbeat shit that will take the party to the next level.

Mr Vegas – Daggering (zshare)

This was the tune of last year. Crazy ass shit again. Mad minimalism. Just percussion, a bit of music and vocals. Here is the video. It’s a fucking hilarious concept. A daggering service. We want to be a daggering service. 

Mr Vegas – Dope (zshare)

Another fast paced track in the style of his recent output. No video for that one but it will still get a party started if you want to get a party started. You do want to do that? Right?

Mr Vegas – Mus Come a Road (zshare)

More laid back vibe here. Sometimes one needs to relax and walk in slow motion around town to get to the club where you perform. What would that look like? Maybe like this:

Mr Vegas – Round of Applause (zshare)

No video for this one. This has been one of The Dirty Frenchman’s favourite songs for a while. Pure rhythm. 

Mr Vegas – Hot Fuck (zshare)

Ha ha ha! Did you think we were going to forget this one? Well you were wrong! Along with Dutty Wine this is the dancehall dance sensation of the early 21st century. Check out this remix in a b-more style:

Jamtech Foundation – Hot Fucker (zshare)

Pretty good eh? Well here is the video (with the kid friendly name “Hot Wuk”, moms approve):

Here is a video where Mr Vegas sends up US talkshow culture. A poignant bit of cultural critique. The Dirty Frenchman remembers watching this in his 3rd year media studies class at York University:

This next video has something we’ve always been asking for: hot chicks and a “road” theme. You may think the grade three drama presentation decor is funny but that is intentional. Mr Vegas is doing this ironically. The director of this video and Mr Vegas did not put the set together and look at it and say “This is awesome!”. They looked at it and said “This is ironic! People will see that immediately”. All jokes aside (not aside), this is a classic track:

Ok, that is enough.
