Furtyle Brain knocks lack of loyalty in dancehall
Dancehall artiste Furtyle Brain is concerned about the lack of loyalty being displayed by some people in the music industry.
He pointed to shifting power dynamics that create a situation where there are professional entourage members that move from artiste to artiste, and movement to movement, all in the pursuit of fame.
"A lot of people in the industry are wave riders and 'wagonists'. They go around people to build a hype. But they are not real, and that is why there is so much bad mind in dancehall. The reality is that yu have to take a side in dancehall, it comes down to loyalty and sticking with your day-one brothers," he said.
He praised Popcaan for embracing his rising DogMosh Movement.
"He loves the slang, the lyrics, and he endorsed me even before this project began to do well in the streets," he said.
The artiste's DogMosh Clan on the Henging Tree rhythm is doing well on the streets and in social media, racking up 52,000 views on YouTube in only three weeks.
Born and raised in Montego Bay, Furtyle initially had aspirations of becoming a rapper.
In 2010, he released his debut single Kickers over Clarks, which was a counteraction to Vybz Kartel's hit single, Clarks.
Furtyle, whose given name is Kenardo Andre Robinson, is also promoting a new single called What Her Throat Can Do, which has been labelled an Ishawna counteraction.
