Accurate! Real talk from the minister of argument and reasoning, honorable Kabaka Pyramid. “Music is the Weapon of the Future,” Fela Kuti once declared, and he used his power as an artist to bring about political change. Kabaka Pyramid follows in that proud tradition with his latest song, the sarcastically titled “Well Done,” which was produced by Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley. In the tune, Kabaka blazes a fire on Jamaica’s political leaders for selling out the people and leaving the island nation in a serious predicament. “I don’t want it to look like I’m on a all-out attack against the government, but I want people to be aware that they have a say in the governance of the country,” the prolific lyricist said when asked by the Jamaica Observer newspaper. “It might be a harsh statement but I see no inclination that politicians are interested wholeheartedly in the welfare of the people.” The song makes mention of the IMF debt, and development deals with Spanish and Chinese interests. But since that time the Riverton dump fire has given the song fresh meaning. Kabaka took to Instagram today to make the connection. Audio After The Jump… Every year dis madness gwaan […]
