Dancehall Music impact on Society


Dancehall music has always been very influential since its inception/production.

The music have the power to hypnotize you if you allow yourself to be fully engulfed.

One main reason for the musical impact is because artist are seen as idols or role models. Another reason is that persons crave attention and always want to be ahead all the time. Proving their status and stamina.

Ever since the 80s artist will command their fans to do dances, say crazy phrases and act a certain way. This is all for the hype and status.

Everyday, you will hear someone express that crime and voilence is a major factor affecting our society in the Island of Jamaica. Some persons link this behaviour to
the lyrics being used in songs and dancehall.

In my opinion, it does presently 2010. One of the most influential group/artists in Jamaica today is the Portmore Empire and Vybz Kartel, the leader of the group.

Most young dancehall and reggae lovers consider this group/artist as their idol. The type of music lyrics put forward by this group can be voilent and explicit for the most part.

I am not hitting out at the Portmore Empire nor Kartel, but the truth is just the truth.

To prove my point, in 2010 when the Vybez Kartel collaboration with Popcaan "Clarks" hit the airwaves, most if not the entire nation from young to old, sung the song, wear the clarks and even steal clarks.

The price of a pair of Clarks shoes doubled in an instant.

Apart form the violent gun lyrics there are also the outrageous dance moves and dancehall slangs. Most of the hardcore dances are even known by kids as young as
four (4) years old. One such dance is the ever popular dance hall skinout.

Here are some artists who have a large impact on our society today.

* Bounty Killer
* Busy Signal
* Sizzla Kalonji
* Vybz Kartel
* Beenie Man
* Shabba Ranks
* Ninja Man

We at dancehall reggae world are not saying that these artists are bad people, but what ever they do or preach becomes the practice of the younger generation in our society today.

It is with these and more findings that I've made my conclusion that dancehall music does impact our society's behavior.

THE CONTROL ARTISTS HAVE OVER YOUTHS



dancehall artists and the lyrics they choose to says alot about them personally., because if you do something why would write or even tell someone to do it. artists like Vbyz Kartel are the main role models for today's yopuths so they should acknowledge the power they have over the young ones and use that authority to persuade good.
