Silver Hawk's veteran, DJ Richie Pooh, had to use all of his experience to hold off a steep challenge from Flava Unit's 21-year-old selector, Badda Bling, who earned much respect in a final showdown for the championship belt of the Magnum Follow Ur Sound clash at Sugarman's Beach last Sunday.

Silver Hawk also pocketed $250,000 for the win. The other two sounds in the clash, Sound Trooper and Body Guard, were eliminated in the third round.

Silver Hawk's Richie Pooh had this to say: "I knew we could beat Flava Unit in the dub-for-dub segment."

Flava Unit erred in the dub for dub segment by going 'Ole Skool', playing right into the hands of Silver Hawk, which has an arsenal of yesteryear dubplates. Being a 21st century disc jock, one would have expected Flava Unit's Badda Bling to have a modern-day catalogue of dubs, which could have put Silver Hawk under more pressure.

huge forward

However, Silver Hawk's selection of a Burru Banton dub had the crowd in a frenzy, the artiste on hand to witness the huge forward first hand.

During the dub-for-dub segment, Richie Pooh conversed: "Me is the only galis deh bout, me play di only woman dubplate for the night, with Judith Mowatt's Guilty".

Flava Unit went for Bounty's Lodge, while Silver Hawk responded with Tony Rebel's declaration, "A Reggae put Jamaica pon top".

However, Badda Bling was not ready to give up the ghost just yet saying, "I'm in a killing mood, we heart big and we brave", as he played a Shaggy dub - 'Flava Unit Bombastic'. The crowd exploded and the war was getting hotter.

In the end, however, all three judges - Dr Sonjah Stanley, senior lecturer (UWI), Donovan Dacres and Ninja Man, gave Silver Hawk the nod and commended Badda Bling for the high energy level he brought to the clash.
