greetings all..
does anybody have info about the VI artist IJah Menelik? He used to have a site at [www.shashamanemov.com] but it's been down/inaccessible for a couple of months now. Perhaps there is a new website? i'm looking for upcoming tour dates. Hopefully he'll be on the next Talkin Roots tour.. Any info would be appreciated! Washington DC represent

I Jah Menelik is a powerful artist with conscious, hard hitting lyrics and a versatile style. His debut album "Utopia" blends militant roots lyrics with hip-hop influenced riddims in a unique mix that is a departure from any other "VI" sounds.

We were blessed to have I Jah Menelik show up the last time Midnite came through the Independent. The Green-Up crew warm up already featured VI artists Binghi Ghost, Donny Dread, and Natty Nubian, and having I Jah show up was icing on the cake.

With no rehersal, I Jah grabbed the mic and rode any riddim Swami threw out. The highlight being his boom tune "Bagga Wire" over the Jamrock riddim, which was pulled up three or four times.

On top of that, he was a genuine and kind artist to deal with. I look forward to seeing the Bambu Station crew come forward this summer with the full Mt. Nebo family..Iba, I Jah, Lady Passion, Ras Bumpa, Black Culture, and why not bring Danny I, and Bobo Ites along.

Respect, MK
