WATCH THIS: Noisey Jamaica “Tommy Lee Sparta”

Snoop Lion’s Dancehall Documentary Continues Its Gaza Trend
TOMMYLEEBOOM
The first two episodes of Noisey Jamaica’s dancehall series focused on Vybz Kartel and Popcaan, and the Gaza trend on part three, which features “the Anti-Christ of the dancehall,” Tommy Lee Sparta. His “Uncle Demon” persona has made him easily the most controversial character in Jamaican music, hot with the kids and dissed by older dancehall diehards. In a dimly lit room, Tommy Lee opens up in this interview. Be afraid. But it’s not all fun and games and scary makeup. The former Leroy Russell says he can’t return to his home in MoBay because of his success, as police have now branded him a don. “I can’t even get to see my kids them,” he says. “I can’t go to my place.

Episode one of “Noisey Jamaica” focuses on the Werlboss. Although there’s no interview with Kartel—whose trial date was recently postponed again, this time until May—we do get a few words with Dre Skull, who produced the album Kingston Story, and some Gaza youths who want to see Kartel free. We also get a very interesting conversation about how Kartel encourages girls to “quint” their muscles during sex. All in all an entertaining start. Video After The Jump…
