Look at Admiral Before He Hated Everything
It’s hard to believe there was a time when legendary disc jockey and personality “Admiral” Nelson actually had a heart. Throughout the years, he has developed the reputation of being a hard mout’ critic who wouldn’t even play the music his own children produced. But, even though you may disagree with his points, you have to respect him consistently sticking to his guns – giving jack his jacket where ever necessary and never sugar coating his feedback. I had an acquaintance who made a song, took it to Admiral, and Admiral told him he has no friends. What a bitter pill to swallow.
Recently I came across a vintage Liberty radio promo on Facebook. In between the Jheri curls and pop-locking in the Queens park gazebo, we see a the grinch actually donning a smile. What a time!
Rumour has it, days after shooting the spot, Nelson had a vision. In it, he saw the coming of bashment soca, and a the rise of Shane Atkinson. He then lost his fro, his taste for anything young, and he hasn’t smiled since. Watch below.
