Another one from Vendetta Bennett, responsible for other resent efforts like Mad Ants and Krazy. The title is taken from Ele’s stupid tune Egyptian dance, a tune a lot of us just hated, partly because it was a stupid tune, partly because it was a stupid dance but mostly because every dibbi dibbi soundbwoy played it to death. I don’t ever want to hear this again, yak!
Newcomer of the year was really Vybz Kartel (I’ll save Predator for next year when he have more then one hit tune). His Sweet To The Belly was a minor hit and one in a long row of minor hits from him. I’m convinced Vybz Kartel has the potential of improving over the year like Ele has done, but I’m not convinced one man can be a Kartel and that “Vybz” or “Kartel” really is spelled like that. And…TA-DAAAA! The ”Bounty Killer substitution award” of 2003 goes too…. KARTEL! Welcome Mr Kartel into this glamours group, including previous winners such as Merciless, (2000), Baby Cham (2001) and Elephant Man (2002) (se previous JAMRID awards)!
Not only does Vybz Kartel receive the ”Bounty Killer substitution award” this year, he also brings home JAMRID:s traditional "Ninja Me Ninja Prize" given to the clash artist of the year.
Vybz brought back some fundation moves into todays clash business from the days from way back when Duke Reid and Coxone used to clash, namely a solid, firm, old school punch on the nose! It was certanly a respectful homage to the godfathers of the counteraction business he displayed when he in front of 20.000 people at Sting jumped at Ninjaman and punched him out! Reportedly this move even left the Sting audience gasping!
A video clip of this is to be found in the net, audiomaxxx has it and probably others too. The Audiomaxxx one is 17 minutes and you can se most of Vybz performance before the incident. And truly, I have to say Vybz looks really really scared when approaching the point when he has to call in Ninja. Ninja get on... and bwoy do he look confident! I think Ninja would have detronized Vybz, so that right hand to Ninjas nose was probably a real clever move. The clash ended abruptly, and no on can say Ninja killed Vybz. Or that Vibz killed Ninja for that matter (a bleeding nose may hurt, but it's pretty far from death still...)
Anyway, it’s kind of funny how many artist nowadays are getting better over the years. It used to be that they came from nowhere with one boom tune, 20 more killer tunes, a year of fame and then gone. The first artist really that got better and better over a period of time to finally be the number one was Bounty. Now a lot of artist seems to follow this pattern, most notably Ele, who is just getting better and better and better. And in the case of vybz, man... one day he's going to confront Ninja again and he need to get his act together because that is going to be a tought one!

Comment by: bibi Date: 2007-12-29 Comment: Vybz Kartel is a very good singer, but one thing I don't like about him is the fact that in almost every riddim, his versions cause slight silences or reverse motions of the riddim. Sometimes you get sick of it.

Comment by: Henrique Date: 2006-02-09 Comment: The Egyptian Riddim is actually a collaboration with Daniel "Blaxx" Lewis. I never heard of him before this riddim but he put out a couple good ones later, like the blackout, and more recently "Blue Lagoon".
