Yellowman, Lawman Lynch, D’Angel and Others Uniting for Change in Jamaica!

Jamaica Unite! This is the song penned by Lawman Lynch, hoping and wishing for a new Jamaica. Fear, uncertainty and reflection have enveloped Jamaica in the wake of the West Kingston unrest. Many Jamaicans questioned how we lived and how we treat each other.

Moreover, the music fraternity has been going through its own special troubles – with another artiste, Ding Dong, barred from travelling to and performing in Trinidad just this week. Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and others have had their visas revoked barring them from the lucrative American market. It is a time to look inward, reflect and change.

Lawman Lynch, a national youth advocate, penned this song after his own car was firebombed after expressing a forthright opinion on the Prime Minister’s resignation on current affairs program, Direct. He could have concentrated on his disappointment at the postponement of his charity concert, Music for Life - for the Lawman Lynch Foundation. Instead he brought the artistes together to sing a song of hope and togetherness for this island of Jamaica. Yellowman, D’Angel, Hezron, Raine Seville, Gabriel aka Levardes, Neil Amos, Kimberley Nain, Hodari and others are all on the song. The song is being produced by Mafia McKoy of Loud Disturbance Records.

The contributions don’t stop there! Veteran artiste, Yellowman is even putting up money to get a video done. “Recognizing the importance of unity and togetherness in this time of hardship, I had to put in my contribution as well. Especially as an artiste, we in the music need to pull together now more than ever”.

To show the unity of Jamaica in the face of all that we have suffered and continue to feel, the group – Lawman Lynch and friends – is coordinating a move for all radio stations to play Jamaica Unite at the same time – next Wednesday (June 16th) at 2:15pm.

Bruk Pocket Jamaican

"Recently, this Jamaican won the 10 million special lottery for a dollar. As soon as the office of the Lottery Corporation was open on the following day, he was there to collect his winnings.

Graciously, he presented his winning ticket to the clerk and in his best English uttered his request "Me cum fi collect the 10 millian dallars, si me ticket ya".

After reviewing and checking the ticket with his manager, the clerk returned and requested on how he would like his payments. The Jamaican replied "Mi wan all a de moni now". "Unfortunately, Sir" the nervous clerk responded, "The procedures are that we can only give you one million now and the balance equally over the next 20 years".

Furious and agitated, the Jamaican asked for the manager, who re-iterated "Sir, my assistant is correct, it is the regulation of the corporation that we initially pay you one million dollars now with the balance paid to you equally over the next 20 years".

Outraged, the Jamaican slammed his hand on the desk and shouted in anger, "Oonu tek me fi idiat, me wan all a de moni now or oonu gi me bak me rass dallar!!"
