Junior Reid’s New Album ‘Living Legend’

Junior Reid

Junior Reid makes a bold claim with the title of his next album, due mid-August. It is Living Legend, a 16- to 18-track set of all-new songs, which includes Heat is On, Looking Out, Take it Easy (featuring Capleton), Where is the Love, I’m So Crazy (featuring Cassidy), and Real OG.

Chris Brown barred from Britain because of Rihanna beating

On May 23rd 2010 I wrote the ‘Boycott Reggae Sumfest Unless They Drop Chris Brown’ blog and started a similarly titled Facebook fan page which attracted 800 people in 5 days.  This caused facebook to disable my personal account for 24hrs and delete the boycott page. Now Great Britain has joined the cause and banned Chris Brown from entering the country forcing him to cancel three shows. I still urge Reggae Sumfest to drop CB and follow Great Britains lead. As i mentioned in the original blog at this time in Jamaica we need to put good role models in front of our youth and not a convicted woman beater.

Please let Reggae Sumfest know how you feel by emailing their executive director Johnny Gourzong at  johnny@reggaesumfest.com I am sure he would love to hear your opinion…
