The Warlord, Bounty Killer has marched onto the battlefield, this time to wage war for the protection of Jamaica’s natural environment.
Bounty Killer has made it clear that he wants no bauxite mining in the Cockpit Country in Trelawny, Jamaica’s largest watershed, and will be cross and angry if the Jamaican Government permits bauxite companies to encroach into that territory. On Saturday the five Star General posted an excerpt from his newest song titled “Born and Raise” on the Hard Knock Rhythm, with a written commentary in which he also had some choice words for some of the younger deejays who are failing to voice songs slamming injustice and other social ills taking place in the country.
The Poor People Governor (Bounty Killer) even issued what appears to be a word of caution to Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness.
“IT SEEM IF I DON’T DO IT THEN IT WON’T BE DONE ANYMORE WHERE IS THE VOICES OF TODAYS GENERATION TO STAND FOR THE PPL I GUESS THE PPL FOLLOWING THESE FOOLS AND TURNING IDIOTS
Albert Town stay vigilant allout war with the government Andrew Hold This lazy sleeping Jamaicans wake up!” Bounty posted on Instagram.
His comments come following protests by Albert Town residents in Trelawny who are fighting to prevent mining in Maroon territory and the watershed. In his new advocacy song, the Grunggadzilla belted out lyrics, which speaks to social ills just like his mega-hit Poor People Fed Up.
“Mi a rep fi di ghetto weh mi born an raise in and di mountain a problem we facin; caw di politician dem still gazin; but wi still a hol a vibes, its amazin,” Bounty Killer deejay.
The dancehall legend continues, “Dem no want see ghetto yutes inna di upper echelon, when Jah-Jah bless dem han. Dem come a talk wi come from di rough and end up wid diamond. Look deh, dem no set no opportunity fi yutes wid ambition; dem blame wi fi di condition; nuttn no lef fi di native a di lan; Wi a go wrath if dem sell Trelawy to Chinie man.”
His post was met with support from one fan Grand Hussle, who blasted upcoming artistes for spending time showing off their clothes and cars instead of fighting for the rights of their fellow Jamaicans who put them where they are.

“The ppl who fi ah fight fi JA ppl caught up in who wearing the tightest pants and dem caught up with tearing down dem one another. Anytime an artist start out in the music industry you see and hear dem advocating fi the ghetto ppl. Den as dem get likkle shine dem stop sing fi the ppl dem. Dem go uptown go live and show off pon the ppl dem who help build dem career. Nowadays yuh see dem pon Instagram ah maggle. Even the rasta dem lose sight of d mission,” he wrote.
“Ghetto heroes is a quick dying breed. These days it’s really really hard to find a decent positive uplifting song with lyrics that isn’t based on “big car/house and materialistic things that lasts more than a week. The government realize the weakness that plagues nuff ghetto yutes and dem exploiting it. That’s just one of the reasons why the government dealing with poor the way it does. It’s using our own ppl to keep us where they want us,” he added.
“Wulla them want sing bad man tune general lazy brain like them don’t know harf life,” grizzlleward_music chimesd in while djcraigis_grimyboss urged Jamaicans to give full support to the sing.
“We as the people need to push song like this and stop jump up to f@kery teach them me General because the Only thing I see out there is a bunch of tomatis calling them self artist #1 General @grunggaadzilla,” he said.
