As if making a come back with hit songs like "Hold The Line" w/Santigold, and "Dem ah Pree" wasnt enough, Mr Lexx is now also taking over the big screen. He guest stars in an independent film "Wah Do Dem" written, directed and produced by Ben Chace and Sam Fleischneryes. In "Wah Do Dem", young Brooklyn musician Max (Sean Bones) decides to go on a Caribbean cruise alone when his girlfriend Willow (Norah Jones) dumps him cold two days before the trip. Once in Jamaica, Max quickly escapes the tourist zone for more "authentic" surroundings and in the process is robbed of his possessions and is stranded, and literally misses the boat. As Max sets out for the American Embassy in Kingston on foot, Jamaica is waiting to meet him with unexpected and extraordinary encounters, including a full-moon celebration with the legendary reggae group The Congos, and a dreamy stay with a Rasta prophet.

After a 1 month stand off between Jamaican security forces and citizens of Tivoli Gardens in search for Christopher "Coke" Dudus, he has been captured and brought to New York City to face federal charges. Dudus was said to be on his way to turn himself into American officials in Jamaica when he and his advisors were stopped and he was subsequently arrested. As the pictures below show, he was in disguise when caught, but appeared to be happy that it was over. Dudus reportedly told one reporter he was "just happy to be alive". Full story about Dudus below in my previous article.
