PR Jamaican Ent: Popular Dancehall singjay, Clifford Smith aka Mr. Vegas has returned to the spotlight with his new, thought-provoking single "Certain Law" on the recently released Barbwire Riddim.
The track opens with horns from Harry Toddler's classic single, "Bad Man Nuh Dress Like Girl." Vegas goes on to address current fashion & social trends that have stirred controversy within the Dancehall community. In the song's chorus, Vegas deejays "Well as a man, yuh haffi know certain law, hipsters & belly skin a nuh fi gangsta, as a man yuh haffi know certain law, weave and False Hair a Fi Lady Saw. As a man yuh haffi know certain law, yuh caan get yuh liquor and a drink outta straw, every gangsta weh know bout di law, if yuh never wear a panty a swear to Jah Jah." Vegas main point within the single is for men to dress like men whenever they go out & not to imitate styles of females who they associate with or see on television. "Certain Law" has received frequent airplay on Jamaican radio stations & has received noteworthy buzz within the Dancehall fraternity.
The song is one of a slew of summer hit singles from Vegas, who's also released "Video Light" on ZJ Chrome's Contra Riddim, "Better Place" on the Drink & Party Riddim as well as "Informer" which is a single paying tribute to recently incarcerated Reggae superstar & friend, Buju Banton.
Meanwhile, "Certain Law" is one of many hot tracks of the Q45 produced Barbwire Riddim which include other top ranking Dancehall acts such as Lady Saw with "Girlfriend," Savage With "Mama," Assassin with "Profile Pic," Macka Diamond with "Hot Like" & Sizzla Kalonji with "Barb Wire." The Barbwire Riddim is reminiscent of the classic Sniper Riddim that was released in 1998; featuring Harry Toddler's aforementioned single. The Riddim was released in late June & has received good reviews within the industry.
