IT has been 18 years since dancehall deejay Bling Dawg (formerly known as Ricky Rudie) scored his first hit Circumstances, a collaboration featuring Beenie Man. During the period, he has matured as an artiste and songwriter.

Come early 2019, Bling Dawg will showcase his maturity on his latest EP. The yet-to-be-titled project will see him working with a number of producers, including Truck Back Records.

“I've been in the studio working on my EP that's coming out early next year. I've also been spending a lot of time in the gym, but musically, I am writing and producing a lot of material,” Bling Dawg told the Jamaica Observer.

Come next Friday, December 14, Bling Dawg will bring a retro vibe to the Magnum Xplosion event scheduled for the Melbourne Cricket Oval in Kingston.

“Fans can expect to hear songs from back then — hits from the 2000's only. I will transform back to my old self, and they can expect a lot from Bling Dawg,” he said.

His popular songs include Kiss My Baby Good Morning, Phone Call (featuring Vybz Kartel), Shotta Ting, Floss Like We Do, and Tweeta. In recent years he has scored with two dance hits, namely Kreech and Aji Bounce.

Magnum Xplosion will also feature performances from Aidonia, Govana, Spice, Agent Sasco, Teejay, Ding Dong and Ravers, Devin Di Dakta, General B, Chico, Mr Lexx, Ward 21, and Magnum Kings and Queens of the Dancehall participants Bluugo, Kash, Waata, Pink Boss, and Safiyah.
