Re: To Serpico: There was never any apologize made by Buju Banton related to this song. It was recorded in 1992 (or 1988 according to Wikipedia) and was always a source of huge controversy (for serious reasons) and acted as a ghost on Buju Banton's career. He was provided numerous occasions to distance himself from a song he claimed penned when he was only a teenager (as an excuse?). Even in recent years, before his arrest in 2009 for cocaine possession, he used the rhythm onstage to provoke LGBT organizations and to heat up his crowd. That song became the Caribbean hymn to violence on gay men and was even rank No.24 on Jamaican Top 100 Most Influencial Songs, a list made by Mutabaruka in 2009. As far as I'm concern, this song is a shame to Jamaican culture and unfortunately has open doors to hundred of violent songs made by dancehall artists in the two decades that followed. Just to give a sense of the social climate that LGBT must face on a daily basis in Jamaica: between February and July 2007, 98 gay men and lesbians were targeted in 43 different mob attacks. Four of them were killed. (source: J-FLAG). Buju Banton wasn't the first Jamaican artist to promote violence towards LGBT in his music. Shabba Ranks did it before him, around 1989.
Buju distances himselff from this song or any other hate or violence against other people.https://www.reggaeville.com/dates/festival-details/summerjam-2019/news/news/buju-banton-distances-himself-from-boom-bye-bye/
This song is one violent, homophobic tune. The instrumental, however, is a total re-working and completely brilliant. Laid back and mellow, it's an antidote to the A-side. And maybe an apology of sorts, too.
It's no apology. Buju stands behind his song and this is not uncommon in Jamaica, he just happened to get a world wide hit out of this trick. .. The b side is the dub.
