Blessing or Offense? (3) - Webmaster's Column

Dubroom Online - Edition November 19, 2007


WWW, November 19 2007 - Stitchie preaching the Gospel, Easy Skanking on Warrior lyrics and baldheads singing "Crazy Baldhead": what many would consider offensive outside of Reggae Culture, others simply see as a blessing.

For today, we have a Podcast review with the title "Dangerous System". It contains a selection of tunes that some would call slackness, adult even, mixed with tunes that speak a completely different language when it comes to love and relationships.

This is exactly what happens in the dance too. Conscious vocalists and those that sing slackness will perform together and pay each other respect. So, is it kind of hypocrite? Just words? Kind of like making music about Santa Claus, knowing that he doesn't exist?

More tomorrow...

Give Thanks, One Love,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
