do people truly sit down and vibes over what ian alvarez is saying/singing sometimes? cause sometimes i really don’t think they do—and they should. and yes, i consider it a kind of intellectual laziness when some people say how he is chanting “too fas” so they couldn’t be bothered.
anyhoo, on the eve of the merry monarch’s 2010 reign, a few timely words from the black spaniard’s “brave”. instant classic i say.
“fraid ah jab-jab
yuh fraid ah j’ouvert
yuh fraid ah big fete
yuh say yuh doh know who dey
so yuh not going fire fete or license
say de people out dey, dey wilder than bison
but what going tuh happen
if nobody want to head to skinner park?
so we cyah fraid, ah say we cyah fraid… ”
“never fraid yuh own ting—i say yuh cyah fraid it at all!”– Bunji Garlin
and i DO need a brave button in my life sometimes. *sigh* fear can be debilitating.
