Mista Majah P: New Reggae/Dancehall song promotes LGBT rights
Mista Majah P “Rights” for LGBT people
Jamaican born reggae dancehall performer Mista Majah P has released a song that promotes love for gays.
The song is titled “mista majah p rights (tyler clementi-asher brown)” on YouTube at http://bit.ly/afu8gn
Buju Banton says that “controversy sells.” “Rights” is bound to create a lot of controversy. Let's hope that it sells!
Ironically, some of the murder music artistes like to claim that most of their work is “positive,” “conscious,” and “uplifitng.” Capleton even has a song, “That Day Will Come,” which talks about “equal rights and justice for all.” You can see Capleton's “kill LGBT” lyrics at http://bit.ly/9lg1KD
You will find “Rights” to be truly positive and uplifting.
We have learned, to our surprise, of an older dancehall song by Tanya Stephens, “Do You Still Care” that has some pro LGBT lines in it. There are a number of versions of this tune on YouTube including an acoustic version and a version with lyrics. Here's the non-acoustic version http://bit.ly/axAsUV The acoustic version of “Do You Still Care?” has been on YouTube for more than three years! Who knew?

(The word “batty” means “butt” in Jamaican Patois. “Batty man” is a derogatory term for a gay man in Jamaica and the Caribbean. We translate “batty man” or “batty bwoy” as “faggot.”)
