Busy Signal In Beast Mode

Busy Signal’s “All In One,” stands as the only dancehall freestyle  fused over 12 classic hip hop beats. In this 2014 song, Busy chops it up vocally and lyrically over each beat, as if competiting for a black belt.   The song trending heavily on social media, a year later, really highlights Busy Signal’s talent. He adds, “Don’t try this at home or the studio or you will have to do it live too,” reminding the music community that each artist in the dancehall genre is an individual; no need for Stereo-Types.

 The video directed by Dameon Gayle, begins with black and white cinematography, a sidewalk living room and a mug shot of Busy Signal during dark times. The motorcycles represent him maneuvering his way to freedom. Once he finds freedom, the video is full of color and  a man who has had an inspiring walk.

    Busy signal has to be the greatest artiste to ever come out of JA I swear this guy is sick! His style, flow, lyrics is crazy. Sometimes I wonder y he seems to underrated by some people but I guess it’s because he’s humble and not hype like some of these fools. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for 2015
