Assassin's lyrics not aimed at Kartel

No Comments

In his latest song, Run Di Place, deejay Assassin says: "How dem a gwaan like Assassin caan done the place/ Memba seh a wi have the fire tune dem weh a bun the place/ Oh? A mussi true mi nah bleach out mi face/ And true certain things you caan give mi fi taste/ Mi nah buy di chart dem/ Nah cheat the race/


Wi nah pick up no freaky ways/ Mi nah follow nuh bwoy mi a di boss fi miself/ Is like a big man deh school in a class to miself/ Dem all a seh mi mad so mek mi talk to miself/ But certain things mi nah do fi market miself/ Mi nah put out no freaky photographs wid miself/ The music haffi share, mi tek a part fi miself."

However, Assassin insists that despite people thinking that he's throwing stones at Vybz Kartel, he's not.

"It nuh have nothing fi do wid Kartel. When since Kartel have the monopoly on bleaching?" he asks in an interview with an evening tabloid.

Assassin said he spoke about bleaching in his song, Hype Up, years ago, but "all of a sudden yuh caan seh bleaching and a nuh Kartel yuh a talk."

Even with his recent song Talk How Mi Feel, he said people thought the song was in reference to Vybz Kartel even though he spoke about many issues like Voicemail member Oneil Edwards' death and fake friends, among other issues.
