One of the many things I like to see are young people doing something positive with their lives. The musical combination RuguNation is just that. RuguNation is a musical group started by two college students a.k.a Versatyle and Price who have a strong love for music. You can listen to their music here. They are not your everyday musical talent they are beyond the norm. The songs that I have heard are of a great variety and I can tell you they are promising. Don’t take my word for it listen and be your own judge. If you like what you hear then become a fan and support our young talents, we need more youths to tap into their potential and think positive for the future ahead. “Music is the weapon of the future”

Beenie Man is reportedly no longer a part of the Virgin Records roster. The dancehall kingpin recently parted company with the label after releasing four albums including a Grammy-winning disc.
Sources close to his former management company, Shocking Vibes Productions, hinted that Beenie Man’s departure from Shocking Vibes, as well as the low sales of his most recent Virgin album Undisputed, may have been contributing factors.
Said the source, who requested anonymity: “The situation is normally one that exercises options. Virgin will look to recoup their money from proceeding options, seeing that Beenie Man’s last album flopped. He was signed through Shocking Vibes to Virgin.” The source further added Virgin didn’t exercise the option on the contract to take up another album.
However, when contacted, Beenie Man refuted the claim that he was dropped by Virgin. Said Beenie Man, “I have no contract with Virgin. Virgin has merged with Universal EMI so there is no more Virgin Records. A contract is still there to put out a next album. I left them, they never dropped me,” Beenie Man assured.
He added: “I will be putting out my album on MAFIA House.”
Beenie Man was signed to Virgin Records in 1998 by the label’s A&R, Patrick Moxy, on the strength of the Billboard charting single Who Am I (Zim Zimma). Under the deal, he released Art & Life, Tropical Storm, Back To Basics, and Undisputed. Art & Life has been the most commercially successful, having sold 404,932 copies to date, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Tropical Storm has sold 282,976, while Back To Basics, which contained the Billboard charting singles Dude and King Of The Dancehall, sold a paltry 165,311 copies. Undisputed, which rocketed to the top of the Billboard Reggae Album chart (a similar feat accomplished by all the albums he released under Virgin), has to date sold 61,420 copies in the US.
