Apparently President Obama and Secretary Kerry are not talking to the right advisers on how to defeat the evil armies of ISIS.
The leaders should be sitting down to talk strategy with Shaggy, better known as Mr. Boombastic, the pop-reggae star who rose to fame in the late-nineties with hits like, “It Wasn’t Me.”
Before his music career Shaggy, whose real name is Orville Richard Burell, worked as a field artillery cannon crewman in the US Marine Corps, and even served in the Gulf War.
As far as his plan to defeat ISIS, Shaggy tells Miami New Times, “It would involve strategically piping his music into ISIS base camps so that the terrorists could connect with his music on an emotional level.”
Shaggy talks about how he came up with his latest song, which he describes as a happy record. He says he was in the car with a friend, just vibing and coming up with stupid stuff like this lyric, “I’m just a millisecond away from giving you the finger. I’m telling you straight up, go f*%k yourself!”
He ended up recording it in his studio, and had that track about five years, according to an article in Miami New Times. A Sony/Brooklyn Knights producer heard it and told him, “That’s a smash — let’s put it out!”
Shaggy says he understands people having a cause and fighting for that cause. He gets that there are people suffering in this world. What he doesn’t get – is how you can justify killing your brother, taking their heads off and filming it. The singer says, “That’s a different level of evil right there.”
He believes that since music alters mood, maybe the lack of music affects ISIS militants.
“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick. But right, music evokes emotion. So if they’re listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they’re not going to want to cut somebody’s head off.”
According to Shaggy, “there’s two things you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you’re f*&%ing high. High people don’t want to kill nothing; they want to love. They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS.”
Apparently a couple of kilos is all they need to put them in a vibe. Just the right mix of music and marijuana usually does the trick, he says.
“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick,” Shaggy told Miami New Times. “But right, music evokes emotion. So if they’re listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they’re not going to want to cut somebody’s head off.”
He then goes on to say that if ISIS listens to his new tune ‘Go F*&k Yourself,’ they might quit terrorism all together.
