Is Dancehall killing itself?

Dancehall music has had its fair share of highs and lows since the 1990s. The most notable of those ‘highs’ are perhaps Shabba’s double Grammy Award wins and Shaggy’s diamond-selling record, despite many other gains by several artistes.

As far as low moments are concerned, there appears to be stiff competition between Shabba’s fall from grace, the backlash Bounty Killer faced after appearing in a music video with a naked man (an occurence he was taken to task about by Beenie Man) on the highly successful Hey Baby collaboration, and Buju Banton’s incarceration on drug charges.
