Shane-O seems to have released the “perfect banger” for the summer, and his loyalists agree.
“How?” is what the 31 year old asks in his newest tune, which was released at 3:00pm on Tuesday (July 16). The song is both a question and a warning to wanna-be gunmen, about what will be their fate if they misbehave in Shan-O’s presence. The song is uncharacteristic of Shane-O in terms of its violence content, but well written and arranged with numerous literary devices used to good effect. The infectious beat belies the fact that it is fully-charged with ‘bad man’ lyrics.
“How you fi do dat? How you fi do dat, bwoy; How you fi do dat, tell, man s*sck dem mumma bwoy?” Shane-O sings in the hook. “Glock criss like a pretty X-5 bwoy; and it wi get yo skull fly. Oh, di Thompson no tek style bwoy. Looking di res a dem, wi done duppy di bes’ five.
“Circle dem. A di surf dem get dem head burst; dem shouldn’t stray lef’ di turf. Yow watch di bwoy a run fi him life, Yanique si when Magnum bus him head round di curve…
“So dis bag a intimidatin’ wid gun unda shirt mek some rookie know dem ting deh naw go work. Head top lick een clip een try fly; even tears when mi bus’ dis put een dry cry. Eagle pick dem u when wi buk, but wi no need WiFi, crime scene lef it ugly similar to Sci-Fi,” Shane-O, whose given name is Roshain McDonald sings.
His fans on YouTube were ecstatic about the 2minutes and 41 seconds songs. “Goodly smaddy him write da song here fi sing and smaddy box him and seh ‘yute a u fi sing this because it guh slap weh’,” D’Angelo Walker quipped.
Unity Prince had words of commendation for the artiste who is also a songwriter for other artistes. “Shane O very bad artiste. Man style and lyrics on point as always. Humble youth as well; very talented,” he said.
Shane-O, first released a video snippet of the song on July 6 on Instagram, where he skanks back and forth across a brickyard while singing in front of several motorcycles, BMWs and a Benz motorcar, generating much excitement from his fans, who predicted that the song would be an instant hit.
