With several controversies surrounding Dancehall music videos, upcoming Dancehall Artist Sol Weatherman is now victim to a candid video gone viral. The video shows the Artist singing his recent single, “Handcart”, with what appears to be an M-16 Rifle in hand. More recently, another video surfaced with the Artist riding a donkey at the popular Street Dance “Wappingz Thursday”.
“Handcart” was produced by Krayv and Jay Crazie Records on the “Car Tire Riddim”, and is described by Sol Weatherman as a “Hustler’s Anthem”. “The video was simply me chilling in my community and during that someone recorded the video and posted it online. I don’t encourage violence, “Handcart” is a song for the Hustlers and hard working people, it is not a violent song”. When asked about the riding on the Donkey, Sol
added, “I believe in promoting my single to the fullest so the video was just another way to market the single for me”.
“Handcart” has been garnering much attention from the streets since its release. Sol added, “In many of the Street Dances you can witness girls pushing Handcarts and dancing. People all over the world love the gimmicks that come with the song, and I am grateful for that”. Sol Weatherman hails from Cockburn Gardens in Kingston, and is known for the singles, “Weatherman”, “Feel So Good”, and “Whine” to name a few.
