The Song: A Glimpse into ‘Gunman’ Culture

“HEAD CHAAGE” is not just a song; it’s a narrative, a gritty and unapologetic look into the lives the artists claim to lead. With lyrics like “P**sy yuh know wi a killa wi nuh afraid a people,” as Squash articulates, the song doesn’t shy away from the raw and often controversial themes that dancehall is known for. It’s a declaration of fearlessness and dominance, themes that resonate deeply within the genre’s culture.

The music video, shot in the United States, adds a visually captivating layer to the song’s potent lyrics. Set in what appears to be a garage, the video is a vibrant showcase of dancehall culture, interspersed with American urban influences.

The presence of eye-catching video vixens further enhances the video’s appeal, creating a dynamic interplay between the song’s gritty themes and its visually stimulating setting.

This collaboration between Squash and Byron Messia is not just a musical endeavour but a cultural exchange, blending the raw essence of Jamaican(Mobay) dancehall along with Messia’s St. Kitts dancehall flavour to reach a broader, global musical landscape. As the video makes its rounds on social media and music platforms, it’s clear that “HEAD CHAAGE” is more than just a song—it’s a statement.

In this latest collaboration, Squash and Byron Messia have not only contributed a new ‘gangster anthem’ to the dancehall repertoire but have also sparked conversations about the genre’s direction and its role in reflecting and shaping cultural narratives.
