Linky First asserts the 'AK' will sweet at yuh funeral
Linky First lays waste to his competition in ‘AK'.
The Jamaican star, known for his large participation in the soca genre, jumps on this bright instrumental, to darken the atmosphere.
“The AK, will sing sweet at yuh funeral / Badman nah walk and lef wid sup’m / Cah we ready fi pop off and press di button”
Jamaican genres often hold a fascinating juxtaposition of stunningly beautiful production and dark, serious lyrics. This is no different here, as seen by chorus bars above. Over the music provided by S91 Records, Linky chats on all the actions one can assert whilst handling an AK. His flow jumps from long, dragged melodies, to skippy, quick patterns; and almost encaptures the listen in a memorising net whilst holding attention throughout the record.
This rhetoric of the light and dark of dancehall is truly one that intrigues me. Thus, an idea is developing that the lyrics are moulded from the harsh environment in which some have to grow up in. Whilst the music is developed from the country’s beauty, and countrymen’s potential outlook on life, or hope.
