Beenie Man says dancehall should boycott Government Events! {VIDEO}

According to the musical doctor the government did nothing to assist in the development of dance-hall music, yet they want to destroy it.
He also says the government tries to pretend that the success of Jamaican music was their doing, but outlines that this is a big misconception because ghetto people are the ones who campaigned night and day to make dance-hall music and reggae a success. The same campaigns which the government are hampering by locking of street dances.

@Vaughn I agree the artist do have a responsablilty but at the same time the violence in the caribbean was here long before dancehall but the youth do use the music ( like hip hop) I would say to endorse what they do sort of like the whole daggering episode which I am glad has passed (Thank God) I thought dancehall was done at which point !!! But the violence will continue with or with out the music what I feel is that the Gov't in this case JA is pressuring the poor people and not the resorts that have the money the street dances are hand to mouth from the dress maker to the deep seafisherman money direct inna dem pocket and even in the states cause of the video and download link for the dancers to catch up on de latest all that generate doe!!! Me really feel that the Gov't in JA are blind and ruthless dem cut street vendor tey fe make dem get permit then cut the dance dem but na give out jobs or have public assistance den have the nerve to import tings dat are grown right there!!!! Have to go wit Tommy Lee on this one Ber Badness!!!! LOL na make sense

Sun Star, Reggae and dancehall, is two different types of music, I grew up around reggae, their was no dancehall growing up until when I was in school in the 80's when dancehall started. Dancehall need to tone it down with the violent lyrics, the youths are taking these songs to heart, and don't understand its music, dancehall artist have to remind the audience not to use their music to committ violence

Thank you Beenie man I agree with you totally. The Jamaica kiss ass Government are cruel towards the music that map Jamaica, the reason Jamaica is known and loved. I agree and we need to do more to raise the awareness of what they are trying to do.

@Ruff, I believe there is an underground movement to kill all dancehall music, basically destroy the culture. Look at my birthland...England, 99% of all sound systems are shutdown and the few that are still functioning are barely able to put on a dance (the other day I communicated with TrevorSax and MuscleHead at Saxon about this). It's a sign of the times we're in, and I agree with Beenie man that there will be an increase of crime as a result.
