For those who didn't know, the Broadcasting Commission of Jamaica recently banned Jamaican radio and TV stations from playing any music with content deemed to be violent or overtly sexual in nature.
Obviously, dancehall musc has come under fire here, namely the type of songs with "Daggering" (a culture based around quasi-erotic dancing) content, with most of the attention falling on Vybz' Kartel's notorious tune "Rampin Shop" (we won't post the video/song here as we trust you are resourceful enough to find it if you want to see/hear it).
Many have spoken out about the ban, and there are no doubt some very different opinions about the ban. Should "daggering" and other suggestive language be confined to the dancehall and OFF the public airwaves? Is this move towards censorship going to be bad for the future of Jamaican music and culture?
