    The club isn't the best place to find a lover
    So the bar is where I go
    Me and my friends at the table doing shots
    Drinking fast and then we talk slow
    Come over and start up a conversation with just me
    And trust me I'll give it a chance now
    Take my hand, stop, put Van the Man on the jukebox
    And then we start to dance, and now I'm singing like

    The last few years have been a golden age for rap. It's the only genre still pioneering and still innovating to any large degree. You can't say that about dancehall.

    I have a lot of sympathy for that. I'm actually loving the mix you posted. My qualm is if that mix had come out in 5 or 6 years ago it wouldn't sound of out of place. That wouldn't have been the case in dancehall before which was constantly evolving.

    Ehhh isn't Drake ripping off dancehall these days? Or Afrobeats, but afrobeats is something like african dancehall

    And let's not forget Buju Sheeran who will be playing at Sting Festival this year with his accoustic guitar, effects pedal and phalynx of rastafarian flag-bearers

    last night we got on the train from upton park and there was a crazy 6'4 eastern european gentleman trying to fight an african gentleman on the platform.

    the driver said 'just to announce we've got an altercation going on at the rear of the train' and then the doors closed and we drove off with the madman on board

    he paced up and down the train looking like he was ready to hit anyone and everyone

    then he pressed the emergency stop button because he missed his station

    he got off at west ham like us and got on another train going the other way

    to this day i wonder what happened to that poor drunken man

    put me right on edge

    luckily after that i drank myself into a state of glorious abandon and cooly g played

    in the air tonight - phil collins
    pony - ginuwine
    close to you - maxi priest
    grind with me - pretty ricky
    climax - usher
    controlla - popcaan
    work - rihanna

    Funny, cos most times when I hear a new tune the production sounds like dancehall.

    Apart from the vocals and flow of course, but you couldnt possibly be describing those as innovative... could you?
