Beene Man gets more bad press today. The Reggae artist came under fresh fire for a track that advocates offing lesbians.
[Gay activist Ben] Summerskill gave MPs an example from a record called Hang ‘em High by the popular Jamaican artist, Beenie Man. The song included the lyrics “Hang chi chi gal wid a long piece of rope”. Mr Summerskill explained: “The key lyric in that means, ‘Hang lesbians with a long piece of rope’.”
Summerskill hopes British politicos feel the groove of pro-gay hate crime laws that will forbid Beenie Man’s malicious music.
is this for real?? Well there is plenty of lesbian music out there…that contributes to the hip hop world! For instance…check out ShirÃ©..former member of Lovher! http://www.myspace.com/shireuniversal
