The hell with this gay-hate crap!

Nat

which video was that in...I totally missed that...

ljp

Well it's goddamn dancehall reggae, so it must be about burning gays to death. Pretty much all that crap is.

MrFab

Oh dear, someone's getting his music news from politcal rags.

ljp, dancehall is a musical genre, nothing more, nothing less. There's been skinhead-nazi punk, rascist country, homophobic rap, r'n'b and gospel, and even wacko classical composers like Wagner, but no sensible person dismisses entire genres because of these creeps. Dancehall ranges from the wedding-party friendliness of Shaggy to the gangsta-rap inspired thugs you're refering to. I like naughty double-entendre gems like this one, recalling the clever calypsonians of the '50s. One of my fave tune of the '90s! (But then again, I also like Benny Hill's songs...)

Thanks for saying something reasonable, Mr. Fab.

ljp

Well OK Mr. Fab, but I'm saying if WFMU puts out objectionable music like Jamaican murder music, not to mention more of that jingoistic hippie-bashing or racist country, on their blog, I'm gonna stand against it.

But seriously, everyone knows that Jamaican music has always been profoundly anti-gay, or sexually conservative, at the very least--it just used to be cloaked in a more palatable religious rhetoric in the pre-dancehall era. Realistically, the number of blatantly homophobic screeds in dancehall are few and far between.

Press release :
Artist / Producer Micklaay Is back with another combo. After his crossovers with his Reggae Vocals on House tracks, His projects on Reggaeton beats vol 8, 9, and 10. And his international hits "My Gal & Floor is on Faya. This time Micklaay did a collabo with Rapper Mac. the track "No Barrier" is a mix between Rap & Dancehall where the vocals from Rapper Mac are accompanied by a Hip/Hop beat, and the Chorus together with the bridge got the necessary Reggae/Dancehall twist that Micklaay finished off with his own flavor. The track is about obstacles in life that u must overcome, You can hear it clear about how they have their own views on that. Overall a dope combination between Hip/Hop and Dancehall with a Caribbean flavor and tough lyrics. in the accompanying video it shows that Micklaay & ​​Mac participate in a poker game that gets out of hand, but eventually gets squashed. This represents the opportunities in life that you can grab and the obstacles in life that you have to overcome when you play the game .
