thats true. somehow i think real uncensored and raw reggae and dancehall is dangerous to them.
bob marley is dead. peter tosh is dead. jacob miller is dead. dennis brown and many others. nitty gritty, tenor saw. i know some dancehall artists have died because they were murdered on the street but theyve said that garnett would be the next big thing and now hes dead too.
buju, tiger, supercat, beres. all of them had big deals. but after shaggy they have only pushed superficial dancehall. slackness and party music. sean paul was the last one theyve made a real superstar.
i still dont know what so many of the real veterans and conscious singers had to die young.
its really strange.
i dont want to abuse this thread to actually PUSH white people (to dishonor the jamaican sound). but i think there are some good white artists who are known internationally. dominic, snow (the dude who sang "anything for you" with nadine sutherland. hes still at it and has a new tune with mykal rose), gentleman, alborosie. i think they arent disrespectful.
