But it was the clashes which took the night, Flava Unit's Badda Bling picking a brief sound system war he lost clearly to Foota Hype, who dismissed the younger selector as someone who never won even a school fight. So, in the wee hours of the morning, the tag team of George Nooks and Errol Dunkley went over very well with the same audience that rolled at raucous deejay jibes, Dunkley's You're Gonna Need Me and Nooks' God is Standing By scoring especially well. Aidonia bustled his burly voice through a set that included Run Road ; Chuck Fendah and Khago were on the fiery side; Stacious slithered her very healthy body into the mix as she insisted on finishing a 'talk' lyric; I-Wayne and Lutan Fyah cooled the clash atmosphere when it threatened to go overboard, even as they blazed fire on sexual impurity. Another standout was Chronixx in a section of four young Rastafarians on the trot. First of the quartet, which included Droop Lion, Jah Sent and Iba Mahr, Chronixx slowed down his material to deliver effectively, interspersing patter into Odd Ras to very good effect, although his voice has much to gain in terms of strength. Holding Firm, Simplicity and Good Ways were among the reggae rockers that took the house down; Get to the Point and Karate roiled up the dancehall massive, Sizzla vehemently dismissing any notions of dancehall sponsorship from the homosexual community. Much of the rest was the expected deluge of dancehall in all its unfettered glory, although on a night where the genuine enthusiastic crowd response was often hard to discern as there were fireworks placed strategically for particular artistes. Ryno was dismissed physically and, after a snatch of song, Popcaan was off too, a missile tossed at the stage preceding his exit. Tommy Lee played it safe Tommy Lee was heavily touted and played it safe to go over very well, sticking within his vocal limits and putting salve on any dancehall wounds by honouring Bounty Killer among his elders, even as he did his Mechanic track. The icing on the cake was the Ninja's lyrical test of his successor Kiprich before handing him the belt, Ninja's responses clearly a cut or two above Kiprich's calibre at this stage of their careers. Spice dismissed an attempted stand-in challenger for Macka Diamond, whom Spice compared to a literal donkey. Sponsor Downsound Records stamped its mark on Sting in no uncertain way, Flippa Mafia splashed liquor, changed his shoes and tossed out greenbacks, there was a single stampede which Ninja worked into his lyrics , and a marathon with its expected lulls, but largely successful, ended at close to 8 a. The clash of the night was a one-sided affair, even as Kiprich asked Ninja Man to stay out of the ring on the stage and took on Merciless and Matterhorn himself, annihilating them completely, even though Matterhorn pressed on to the very end. Busy Signal's triumphant, near minute return performance was somewhat predictable in its content, from the opening pledge to "nah go a jail again" through to tales of his prison experience which slowed down his set eventually before it picked up as he turned to the ladies to the closing praises of El Shaddai. He snarled as 'Uncle Demon' and intoned his allegiance to the Gaza and incarcerated Vybz Kartel repeatedly. That was unplanned and so, it seemed, was Black Ryno's attempted stage invasion when Popcaan who proclaimed his extreme loyalty to Kartel was hardly into his set.
