If you are going to roundup this year there is now way you can get around the gay activists blazing fire pon the dancehall!
Anyway, followers of this site know that I’ve been questioning how wise all this batty bwoy bashing has been, but my own conclusion has been that, unfortunately, it has probably made artists more popular and positively effected their sales. I still believe that is might very well be true, but what happened over the last year was that this whole thing turned in a completely different direction.
Gay activists suddenly decided to see if they could do something about this. These people are not stupid, and easily figured out where the week spot were - the local promoters around the world. Outside JA and perhaps also NYC, local promoters setting up reggae shows also do a lot of other music and events. And the owners of the clubs hosting reggae events do too. The last thing they wanted to be associated with is people expressing thoughts not accepted in society as a whole and just about all of their customers. Particularly as these people represent a fraction of their business. So why attack the artists when the Gay community so easily could undermine the whole infrastructure that makes dancehall available to the consumers? I didn’t see this coming, and I’m sure Buju, Bounty and Capleton didn’t either.
So all these tuff dancehall stars rolled over on their backs in the most humiliating mannor asking the gay world to forgive them. And the gay world just laghued in thier face. Of course. Well, one way or another they had it coming...
I'm sure this is sending messages. My guess is that we will not hear much on gays from the upcoming JA stars in the future, not on records at anyway. As a matter of fact, look at the last 6 months of releases and you’ll se very few Batty bwoy tunes.
Anyway, the sad thing is in this whole business is that dancehall took another blow.... Once again :(.
One of the artists that tried to make some form of excuse (while at the same time trying not to make it sound like an exccuse...the whole thing sounded really cryptical actually) was Caplton, here featured on the Copa with Who You Call A Nigga. Popular tune on a decently popular riddim. No one riddim on this though as far as I know.
