A MUSICAL SHOOTOUT camera.gif (1111 bytes) (BKLYN) <First distributed on the Internet by - Given the recent inconsistency of Killamanjaro's clash record and the dubious comeback record of  LP International outta Brooklyn, no one really knew what to make of this mega clash that took place in Club Warehouse in Brooklyn, LP's back yard!! One thing's for sure, both sounds had a lot riding on this clash!  On Jaro's side, if they lost another clash in Brooklyn, Freddy would have sealed a reputation for not living up to the standards of "Jaro under Ricky Troper"!  On the other hand, if LP Intl lost, this could seriously affect their comeback hopes!  Two big sounds almost evenly matched with regards to new tunes and more or less level as far as foundation is concerned went at it Biltmore style that night in a duel to the death!!  The result of the bloodbath had one sound beaten and one sound declaring victory amidst a sea of controversy that had people arguing over the outcome and what it meant, if anything!!!!

With the line up for WC Y2K1 still up in the air, once thing's for certain: you gotta have a trophy to put on the line in order to be in it!! That's perhaps the reasoning behind the name of this clash as Fire Links and Black Kat go at it in an all out Biltmore-style war!! Panther is pretty much guaranteed a slot in WC Y2K1 and really just wants another trophy for his mantle, but for Fire Links, winning this clash could mean he now has his "entrance fee" - a trophy - should he be called upon to represent for WC Y2K1!!

The early outs were managed by the upcoming selectors (Al Pacino on Fire Links and Mop Head/ Crazy D on Jaro), but when the real war started, the seasoned veterans took over!! The surprise of the night came from Turbo Force, who (unexpectadly) unleashed a bag of big tunes on the two sounds, including a plethora of Capleton and Sizzla which sent Links and Jaro (respectively) running to their dub boxes to see if anything was left from the two artsists for them to play!!  Turbo Force put on a galant effort, but they didnt get a chance to prove their worth in the Dub-Fi-Dub as some armshouse led the clash to end prematurely with Jaro and Links walking out just before the Dub-Fi-Dub ensued!

WHAD UP - BAD MAN NUH TEK BAD UP (NEW YORK) <First distributed on the Internet by - Its a juggling affair turn sour when Fire Links and World Clash 2000 contender Little Rock meet up with New York's own ladies sounds Lady Love and 360.  Reports from Cassette Face of the Jamworld Music FrEaK camp are that Little Rock (the "flip-up kings") started the armshouse as expected but Fire Links ignored them for the most part and used pure hardcore juggling to address them!  In the end it went to a Dub Fi Dub duel and some big tunes drop.  Meanwhile 360 with Lady Treasure and crew played an extra wicked round andf got attacked by Lady Love who came to war.. Total armshouse!!!!> (All Sounds - 1 Tape) 3-10-01

WORLD CLASH 2001 camera.gif (1111 bytes) (QUEENS) <In a decision that took approximately half hour to decide, the WORLD CLASH 2001 TROPHY was awarded amidst controversy in one of the most grueling WORLD CLASHES ever witnessed!!!  With unconventional rules such as "One No Cursing Round", and "One 45 ONLY Round", it seemed more like a stage show than a WORLD CLASH!!!   Every sound was called upon to defend their Trophy won in recent major clashes year, and though defending WORLD CLASH 2000 Champion Killamanjaro was a "no show", the line up was still enough to make for a death-match with sounds like: Bass Odyssey outta St. Ann (DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR 2001 Champs), Black Kat outta St. Elizabeth (RUMOURS OF WAR 2001 and GLOBAL CUP CLASH 2001 Champs), Poison Dart representing Antigua (ANTIGUAN WORLD CLASH Champs), King Tubbys from the UK (EUROPEAN WORLD CLASH 2001 Champs), and Mighty Crown (WORLD CLASH 1999 Champs).  Prince TuFFiE, Cassette Face, and the Jamworld Music FrEaK Family was on hand to take in the action as the sounds warred it out for the coveted WORLD CLASH TROPHY!!  Punctuated between rounds by wicked performances from the Warlord himself Bounty Killer (Big Up!!), at no point in time did any sound clearly have the lead!! When the clash boiled down to the nitty gritty, all was eliminated except two, and an extra Dud Fi Dub Round had to be added - which itself lent to the controversy surrounding the winner!!  Nuff excitement, nuff counteractions, nuff exclusives, nuff drama, and nuff controversy!!!  A Must Have!!!> (Also Available on 4 CDs) (Also Available on Video) (Parts 1-3) 10-6-01

Amidst Stereo Choice being clapped out in the second round, a luck lustre performance from Fire Links, and a strong effort by Matterhorn and Mighty Crown, sources say that local heavyweight Poison Dart was awarded the trophy!! Was this a bias dance, a mistake, or did they truly defeat this impressive lineup??? Decide for yourself!!
