It is often a thought that musicians, specifically the singers,rappers or deejays, write songs just to capitalize on the financial side of the music industry. Though there may be some truth, there are many artistes that use the medium of music to grab the attention of the general public because they need someone to listen to what they have to say.  The intention behind this blog is to provide the lyrics of Jamaican music to bring to the fore the creativity, the hidden intent, or simply the beauty of the lyrics.  However, there will be a twist to some if not all these lyrics. They will go through some form of examination, whether it be linguistic, cultural or simply creative analysis.

Hope the love of music I have will be transferred and felt through each entry.  Simply have fun and let’s enjoy the journey  of words to riddims.
