The legendary Bounty Killa continues to uphold his role as a Dancehall Giant, even at 50 years old. Still influencing and providing a voice as an elder, it’s hard to find an Artist who isn’t seen as one of his kids, or grandkids. Come this Saturday (July 23), he will take the stage at one of Jamaica’s greatest musical events, Reggae Sumfest. Before that however, he needed to make a statement in the video for “As A Badman“.
On the Prado assisted single, Bounty Killa lists out the bullet points for what it takes to assume the role of a “Badman“, and calls out those who violate certain guidelines. Prado gives his points as well, and the duo make a great tune over a production that’s fit for a Gangsta. The accompanying Tinman (Swag TV Filmz) directed music video, we see a story play out of a badman who causes trouble in the community, but in the end gets a dose of his own medicine. ZJ Rush, Shane O, Predator, and Chronic Law make cameo appearances in the video, with the later playing a key role throughout.
Bounty Killa is also working on his upcoming “King Of Kingston” album that has well anticipated since its announcement a couple years ago. While the tracklist has gone through a few changes, Bounty is taking his time with what could be called his best body of work. If you’re in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay, be sure to catch Bounty at Reggae Sumfest!
