Whenever the topic of dancehall comes up there is always a mention of some form of degredation, morals, family etc. DH is a like a hmmmâ€¦its hard to describe - its ever changing. The first time I heard â€œtek buddy galâ€ from the cubicle of a co-worker I thought that that record would NEVER get any air play. Turns out 6 months later it was the biggest thing in dancehall (after some editing and the like). After that it became evident to me that DH isnâ€™t funny or witty or hype or popular or anything, it just is. Its like that girl you meet on the bus that you think was hot until you actually get to know her for the crazy person she is inside. Its a kitten that grows wild in the bush that comes down and rubs on you when its hungry and bite you if you try to pick it up......Check out Sevenâ€™s thoughts on that very topic over by the Tower of Babel. Read what she has to say and tell her what you think on the issue.
