Barbadian Rapper’s journey – just keep walking, this as Rihanna disses jealous Bajans
In the wake of Rihanna, many Bajans are trying to step up and be counted as the next Caribbean hit from here – some are worthy like Fitzroy, but sadly there are others who should have not wasted their airfare and the Worderer is one of them! I take it his title is a mix of word and murderer – but it’s pure murder to check his samples at any of his links!
His 2nd album is called “The Journey” and his media statement wastes no time in implying he’s the next best thing after the inventions of broadband, mobiles and the world-wide-web!
The Worderer wastes no time with an intro that beckons the listener to be a part of his journey. This drops into the title track itself, an excellent identity song especially for the first time listener intrigued by The Worderer‘s peculiar accent and flow. Such intrigue is smoothly assuaged as one is taken through a vividly detailed tour of his roots and culture with lines like… ‘I’m from , that’s in the West Indies, we got the tropical breeze and the hot honies‘… ‘I used to play cricket and pitch marbles for fun‘… ‘on the Golden Rock block is where I started my dream‘.
Started his dream? What? You mean he’s Freddie Krueger‘s outside child? I am glad they spoke of his , the man – Billy Kincaid raps American to reach a wider audience but speaks Bajan and so does Rihanna! His rap sucks so much, he makes Dracula seem dyslexic!
However, the man has no qualms in blasting his own trumpet –
the West Indian version of Common and has no qualms about tackling unorthodox lyric concepts. Like him or not, one must concede that The Worderer has a very unique flow that may take a little getting used to but is certainly one that will grow on you with each listen. touched down on U.S soil in 1998 from his West Indian birth place of Barbados with one driving mission in mind, to push his creative career to the highest level possible. His style is smooth and simplistic and given his cultural background it should come as no surprise that he is equally fluent in the Reggae and soca styles of music. Lyrically he’s like
I am sure it can grow on you, perhaps a little Lamisil will chase it away! Now, dealing with real Bajan talent, Rihanna is tired of ppl here dissing her for what USA folk see as everyday functioning, it seems the internet tabloid Media Take-Out got wind of her diatribe against stupid, petty-minded Bajans picking on the most stupid of minutiae ….
I don?t really let the ones that hate me stop me from doing what I wanna do. They always have something to say about what I?m wearing, what I?m not wearing, like in the ?Umbrella? video. If I wear a swimsuit to the beach, it?s a problem, they put it on the front of the newspaper and call into programs. It really annoys me when people that I try to represent and I try to put them on the map as much as I can ? you know, I didn?t have to put Tridents in my videos.
