Alkaline Pulls Massive Crowd To New Rules [Full Video]Alkaline is being investigated for totting guns in his “After All” music video.
The active investigation is coming from the highest command in the police force. Commissioner of Police George Quallo himself has ordered an investigation into some aspect of the video. The short filmed was directed by Jay Will and starred by Alkaline and some members of his Vendetta crew. The video contains a lot of guns and police officers both in the beginning and in the middle where a female dressed as a police officer performed a sexual act on the dancehall deejay. The police commissioner wants the persons dressed as police officers specifically to be investigated and the police vehicle to be checked to see if it’s a part of the official fleet of the force. “We know that gunmen revel, are motivated and cheered on by gangster music,” said Warren Clarke, an Assistant Commissioner of Police. “It is baffling how a society puts up with such graphic depiction of violence and then wonder why we have daylight shoot-outs and multiple murderers. There is correlation between the gangster culture of promoting murders, social degradation and violent crime. I urge the society to consider its conscience as we engage this most decadent trend.” Watch the official music video for Alkaline single “After All” below.
Alkaline pulls out all the stop to ensure New Rules was a success and he didn’t disappoint.
The Vendetta clan leader pulls a massive crowd to the National Stadium Car Park in St Andrew on Saturday for his first live performance on Jamaican soil in three years. Alkaline performed a well received set signalling his huge popularity in the local dancehall scene. But he can’t take all the credit for the show’s success since the promoters did a great job in putting together a complete package for the thousands of fans who turned out to the venue.
Other artists who performed on Saturday night all delivered well received sets. Some fans may argue that Mavado might have had the best night with a powerhouse set and even took the stage with his “Farewell” collaborator to perform that single. Jahmiel, Shaggy, Tarrus Riley and I-Octane were all in fine form. Every artist came prepared to deliver and they all delivered, and the show was a great experience for patrons.
Alkaline is expected to perform in Jamaica again for the 2017 staging of Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay this summer. Mavado has also returned to Jamaican soil over the last year and is expected to perform at the event.
Alkaline is one of the hottest young artistes on the dancehall scene in Jamaica right now.
Over the last year, the shock value deejay has attracted a lot of buzz with some catchy newsingles including “Things Mi Love,” “123″ and “Trio.”
But Alkaline stunned fans recently when he abruptly fired his manager Dwayne Morrison.
During a recent sit down with Winford Williams of OnStage, Alkaline explained the fallout with his manager, getting his eyeball tattoo, and comparison with Vybz Kartel.
“I had to do what I had to do,” Alkaline said. “I just realized that every loyalty has an expiration date and it’s just clear that now their have expired. They did a lot of good and they also did a lot of bad. I can’t know anything going on career wise or when I ask about anything money related, some man acting like I should not ask them anything.”
Alkaline also said he does not look up to Vybz Kartel as an artiste but he have respect for every artiste in dancehall.
