I overs what both of you is saying. Listen me nuh come to promote gay but if someone is gay me nah go tell them how to live their life. As for being gay and claiming rasta, I tend to agree with E.A.S. but at the end of the day it is for JAH to judge. I don't spend much time thinking about the whole topic, to I it's so many more important things to focus on.
As far as the Sizzla thing, I ain't really trying to dis Sizzla, I love plenty of the man music myself. But I see some contradictions in the man lyrics lately. Like in the song "Legendary", which is a good song, but lyrics like "f*** the woman make dem vagina burn dem"... I ain't know about them things there. Nothing wrong with singing about sex, but it's how you do it, to I them type of lyrics sound vulgar and don't exactly promote respecting our women. And the song I quoted from "Blood a Run Again", whether or not it's metaphor, to I Sizzla voice sound so full of hate in that song that it can't even be a good song. When Anthony B sing "Bun Down Sodom" for example, it is clear this is a metaphor. But when Sizzla say "execute the whole a dem" and "gunshot kill the battybwoy", it may be a metaphor, but it don't sound like one. There are plenty of youths out there who ARE ready to physically take up a gun and go kill a batty boy and them kinda lyrics seem like a hype-up for that kinda activity. Like me say this is a scapegoating, is like you can't go shoot the politician and the businessman that is really causing your problems, so you pin it all on the batty boy or sodomite (or somebody perceived as such, whether or not they really are) and dust them out knowing it probably wouldn't get investigated cos after all police nuh like anti-man either.
I ain't dissing Sizzla, I think he has made some great music and great lyrics like my faves "Real" and "anytime now", but if me don't agree with something, I gon say it. Not as a dis, but as a constructive criticism.
