After OutAroad.com broke the news last Saturday that ZIP 103 FM radio jock ZJ Liquid was verbally threatened, the accused producer Patrick "Roache" Samuels has now gone on the offensive. In a telephone interview with OutAroad.com, Roache denied that any threats were made and had strong words against what he called the race horse system in Dancehall.
"Look mi never threaten him, mi give Liquid mi song good while now and him don’t play mi juggling zeen so mi mek him and the rest of dem DJ gwaan eat dem food cause what really a gwaan is dem a play dem friends song and people that pay dem fi play song, from mi give him the tune a one time mi hear him play it so mi go a di office fi talk to him cause a whole heap a money dem a mek is a sell out ting, when mi reach mi hear sey him not there suh mi speak mi mind and mek dem know sey a pure payola ting a gwan, man a collect money fi play song and what mi said was that. Now mi know why di man dem sey a gunshot you fi get, cause bout a month ago mi call him and tell him sey some man a talk sey a gunshot him fi get. Anno me say so, me would never threaten Liquid after mi nuh fool.
Roache further went on to challenge another well known producer, calling him a sellout. "Don Corleon is the most corrupt thing dancehall ever see, him a sellout, him only use the music fi mek money him don’t have any love fi di music. Him a one a dem that run dancehall like a race track, a King Jammy's a di real big man, dem man deh build Dancehall. Dem cant stop my ting though a platinum mi sey and a long time mi a do this, mi spend 14 years a Cement Company and did a do music at the same time, mi leff Cement Company fi do music, a me send artist a England from inna the 80's. Little John, Tristan Palmer the whole a dem a we set dem ting".
In further explaining what transpired over the phone Roache said he's not aware of anybody speaking on his behalf. "the first time him(Liquid) call me mi tell him fi s**k him m*dda and hang up mi phone but no man never answer my phone and give him no message mi don’t even keep friend so a lye liquid a tell nothing don’t go suh".
With the focus now being shifted to Don Corleon, OutAroad.com will be seeking a statement from the Billboard Charts Producer who has worked with the likes of Sean Paul, Rihanna, Pressure, Alaine and Munga Honorable. Stay tune for the response.
