Terrorism is a very, very complicated problem, but never fear — Shaggy is here. According to the king of Boombastic reggae fusion, the solution is actually a simple one: ISIS + Shaggy music + Weed = No ISIS + a happy world.
In a recent interview with the Miami New Times, Shaggy (whose intense real name is Orville Richard Burrell) explained his foolproof plan.
When asked about the message behind his recent single Go Fuck Yourself, Shaggy said, “ISIS can go fuck themselves. That’s some crazy shit what they’re doing. It’s horrible, man. I don’t get that much hate. I just don’t get that level of evil. I can’t understand it.”
Shaggy’s discontent with the ISIS situation has led him to his own solution for the evolving problem, which involves relaxing people through his music, and, of course, pot.
“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick. But right, music evokes emotion. So if they’re listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they’re not going to want to cut somebody’s head off,” Shaggy said.
“There’re two thing you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you’re fucking high. High people don’t want to kill nothing; they want to love. They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS. I guarantee there won’t be any more wars out there.
“Man, it’ll put them in a vibe. And throw some Bob Marley up in there and there’ll be peace. Some of these world leaders need to be stoners though, really.”
Shaggy toured Australia in May this year, but did not hold any high-level talks with Aussie politicians regarding extremism.
