VMAs in Brooklyn? 🤔

MTV is currently working with numerous government and health agencies in hopes of mounting its annual Video Music Awards live from New York this August, Variety can report exclusively.

The show is eyeing an Aug. 30 broadcast date from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for its 36th edition of the VMAs, where MTV honors the best in the music video medium and features performances from top-charting artists. The plans come as New York City attempts to rebound from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, amid ongoing lockdowns and social-distance orders.

Dancehall icon Shaggy says a movement must start immediately, to enable fellow superstars Beenie Man and Bounty Killer to get back their US visas, to allow them to travel the world, and for the genre’s streaming numbers to grow.

“We have five major players in dancehall now that are not mobile, that cannot represent the culture: Vybz Kartel, Buju Banton, Popcaan, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer,” Shaggy said during an interview with DJ Andrew Fresh recently.

“Five massive columns, pillars of dancehall culture that cannot move to go and promote the culture, and we need to start having the conversation. Because dancehall has the lowest streaming numbers of all formats. It has the lowest numbers compared to Afrobeats and Hip Hop,” Shaggy explained.

I mean after that Beenie/Bounty Verzuz Battle, we know what we’re missing.

Are we rallying or not?

Milwaukee is one of the few places in the United States that is tracking the racial breakdown of people who have been infected by the novel coronavirus, offering a glimpse at the disproportionate destruction it is inflicting on Black communities nationwide.

While many medical doctors maintain that the novel coronavirus is transmitted through droplets from coughs or sneezes, more and more medical experts and officials who work primarily with infectious re

NYC Councilman Andy King Faces New Charges | New York Carib News

It’s only been a few months since NYC Councilman Andy King recently got himself in hot water and was suspended for 30 days with an independent monitor planted at his office to ensure transparency. He is in trouble again.

The Bronx Democrat now faces new ethics charges and calls for expulsion less than four months after the Council sanctioned him for past misconduct – including fresh accusations of harassment and misuse of taxpayer funds for his own gain.

The Committee on Standards and Ethics on Friday voted to charge Councilman Andy King for numerous violations of Council rules and local city and state laws that occurred between 2017 and as recently as Wednesday.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson said he should be removed if he is found guilty.
