 I’z A Bajan has earned Lil Rick his third crown for the 2016 Crop Over Festival.

The patriotic song was named the Tune of the Crop for Monday’s Grand Kadooment, earning the veteran artist a cash prize of $7,500.

Lil Rick, who is celebrating 20 years in entertainment, now adds the Road March title to his Party Monarch and Stag Jam Tune titles for Crop Over 2016 – the same feat as last year’s big winner, Peter Ram.

It is also the third Tune of the Crop win of his career, having previously won the title in 2002 (Hypa Dogg) and 2003 (Mash Up and Buy Back).
Bashment Soca King, Stiffy, was in second place with Tek Off Something, earning $5,000.

There was a tie for third place, which represented the old and the new brigade.

Turn Up De Speaker, by seven-time Road March King Grynner, tied in third place with Marzville’s Bang Bim. Both artistes shared the $2,000 cash prize, taking home $1,000 each.
