Lybran records song about attempted beating
Dancehall artiste Lybran is pleased with the reception to his comedic song 'Rum Talk'. According to the deejay, the single was inspired from a physical altercation with another recording artiste.
The song is already Lybran's most popular effort on social media in recent times. He said it is ironic how a negative situation can bring positive fruits. "Me and some artiste was in altercation and one chopped after me. I managed to disarm the artiste and took away the machete, and four of his friends ran down on me, but because I now had the machete in my possession they ran. I ended up calling I-Octane and he solved the issue ... I later decided that I wasn't going to press charges," he said.
The deejay explained that since he noticed that other recording artistes were having feuds of their own over the past few weeks, he decided to make light of the issues by making a song with a comedic twist.
"I went on Fame FM with the song and the reception that I received from Colin Hines and Nikki was great. They said every punch is bigger than the previous punch, and that was encouraging," he said.
The artiste wants fans of dancehall to support the song since humour can be refreshing amid the crime and violence currently plaguing the island. "It brings back fun in dancehall instead of that gun lyrics where people a cry. This is something to make people have fun, relax their mind and laugh," he said.
Rum Talk is available on YouTube and was uploaded on iTunes last Friday. Lybran has also released parts one and two of the song and hopes to record a music video for both versions.
