WITHOUT THE DANCERS A WEH SOME ARTISTES WOULDA DO?
By:Maria A. Hitchins
Anybody ever stop to ponder, what some artistes would do without the street dancers upon whose creative imagination they continue to prosper,
Some people talk ‘straight’ and say categorically some artistes in fact a pilfer.
Dem just hang around the dancers and capture, the latest dance moves from the hottest dance crews.
Undoubtedly some of the dancers have no clue, as to the whole creative process its rewards and dues.
From Elephant Man, Beenie Man, Vegas, Matterhorn and even Buju Banton all have wracked up significant number ones.
Even the very title of their songs are named after street dance moves, one wonders is there no governing rules?
This unfair practice that is causing much blues, dancers cry foul short term they win, but long term only to lose.
Street dancers need to unite and perhaps begin to write, dem own songs and stories and stop mek some artistes take all the glories, man up, make noise and refuse the handouts, cause the artistes dem a bling, and some dancers can barely buy a ring.
Dancers information, education gives you real clout, what you don’t understand don’t be afraid, ask questions and go sort it out!
