The recent killing of four children and a mother in the New Road community of Chapelton, Clarendon has left – not only Jamaicans here, but abroad, trying to find out what could have led to this brutal act. The mother is 34 years-old while the children ages 15 , 10 , 5 and 11 month old were found with their throats slashed. The police have named a person of interest in the case. Emerging dancehall deejay G Rock, while baffled by this gruesome act, is calling on young entertainers, like himself, to think about the lyrics they spew out to the public.
“I have been hearing some lyrics which makes me wonder what is the agenda of some of our musicians. There must be some interest group benefitting and it is amazing that adults are gravitating to these music which promotes violence.
” I am supporting- not only CRIME STOP which seeks to reward persons giving credible information to solve crime, but Delly Ranx Crime Stop riddim which features my song “Cute Walk.”
The deejay born Garth Lindo migrated from Jamaican 2005 and is now living in Atlanta, US. He recalls Delly Ranx inviting him on the riddim.
“The moment I saw the title I knew it was meant for me. I am happy to do something which people can be happy about. So, Cute Walk is a song complimenting the ladies.”
Born in the Bay Farm community, Kingston 11, the deejay attended St. Joseph’s High School and was influenced by the legendary Bob Marley.
” Bob Marley is an inspiration to every race and this is why he is one of the greatest artist of all times. His song “One Love” is used to attract thousands of tourists to Jamaica.”
G Rock has worked with a number of producers, including Patrick Roberts of Shocking Vibes Production releasing songs such as, “If Yu Hot,” and ” Mental Slavery.”
