The pictures below are from Millennium Countdown 9, a large annual event thrown in Nassau, Bahamas by my longtime friend Josef Bogdanovich. Every year he does this show; rain or shine, war or peacetime, he’s there for the last NINE years. This time around the main headliner was Vybs Kartel who as you can see below, actually made it to the event despite missing two planes, and, as Joe put it: “…setting new trends in time management.”

So, after missing the only direct flights to Nassau (remember Kartel cannot travel to the US), the show date arrived and the only way to get him there was to charter a private jet ( “…we nuh fly pan dem prop plane deh.”) Hours before showtime, there was still no guarantee that he’d actually be on the flight, but the plane took off and at 10 pm later that night, Kartel arrived, smiling.

Now, the pictures are one thing. I always do those. But this time around, Bogdanovich was once again wired and we followed him for 48 hours as the whole thing went down. For those of you who were able to see the one and only screening of The Last Don at Redbones (which is about Josef and his bizarre experiences as a dancehall promoter/producer in Jamaica), you will already have SOME idea of the material we’re dealing with here. But this episode was a whole other league – the phone conversations, the crazy people running around the lobby, the hustling and the running commentary…the kind of stuff that is MADE for cable tv, albeit nothing that would EVER make it past the retards at the Jamaica Broadcast Commission (and we like it that way).

For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, all I can tell you is that there’s going to be an official announcement about it soon, most likely at a second screening which is currently being arranged.

Anyway…here’s a look at some of the photographs that I took when I had the chance. To me Kartel makes Lil Wayne look like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air….and yes, that’s Lisa Hype with the good bleach. (all photos after the jump or click HERE for horizontal view of the full set).
