Hit Me With Music

Hit Me With Music

Jamaican dancehall fascinates the world with its irresistible beats and raw, controversial lyrics. This documentary explores the roots of this unruly offspring of reggae, featuring pioneers Yellowman and the late Bogle, Elephant Man, the Gully and Gaza gods, Mavado and Vybz Kartel, and some of the current issues: warring artists, skin-bleaching and “daggering”.
