lol yeh guys i can understand everything he says........im from Trinidad....the southern most island in the Caribbean. His accent isnt Rastafarian.......his accent is Jamaican.......Rastafarianism is a religion. "boboclat" is a curse.....its like sayin F**k........."scene" is like sayin "Kool"........and "bredda" (supposed to be "brudah") means "brother"
cool.gif

Thanks for clearing that up, i was finding people referring to his accent as "rasta" funny

its jus a jamaican accent

I understand him but, my parents are both from the carribean and i've grown up around alot of jamaicans here in london so thats probably why

I understood a lot of what he said. He was a funny ass character with his accent and attitude and that's why he's up there with Roman as my favorite characters.

With subtitles I understand parts of it. But sometimes he just goes amok with those crazy words.

He always says 'Breda' too whatever that mean's and 'Seen', I have subtitles turned on and have to press start and go to the dialogue to make out what he is saying by reading it over and over...irritating and he talks too fast aswell.

Bumbaclot - Motherf*cker or something similar
Breda- Brother
Seen - Understand what I am saying
Overstand- Understand

And another not said

I think there is a collection of people into pop culture about everywhere you go, but when playing these at home in the USA I don't think too much about it, only online more then anything! happy.gif

Were those terms you listed all say by LJ? I don't recall all of it, obviously pacing my way through the game.

bumbaclot/bloodclot = bad thing
babylon = police
G'wanh = What's going on?
I and I = I
Ras/Rasta = Friend
Black up = Smoke weed
Seen = Understand?

I and I is not "I", it's who ever Jacob is talking about, along with himself...so "WE" is more realistic...or Him and I, etc.

Some of it is just rather slured English...like Brother...with a heavy accent it only sounds like some new word.

Ditto and I'm pretty positive I and I can mean "me" or "I" because I know that when I've visited Jamaica I've heard many times someone say "I n I goin to do this" or "I n I goin to do that"

They were referring to a close friend or significant other, perhaps.. That doesn't make much sense if it's used in singular context as well.

Wa a gwaan jah know?

"Bumbaclot" is the king of Jamaican curse words! Similar to c*nt imo.

I understand him, but I grew up a bit in the carribean, also been to T&T a few times. icon14.gif

Still need subtitiles to catch some parts though.

The radio channels are great for regga and bashment, seen. biggrin.gif

yes well.. what the majority lacks in taste it always tries to make up for it by speaking for me...stfu.

I love the stations... problem is, I already know a lot of the tunes, especially on the classic hiphop and jazz stations. A lot of that I've had on wax for years already... haha.
I remember the first car I got into, and group home's supa star came on. Man, that was our joint a long time ago, hadn't heard it in years. And then there's Jeru, Special Ed. wow.. Talkradio isn't as funny as before... but I think that's because it's the exact same humor as before and it doesn't surprise me anymore.

i think breda means brotha or friend and i think seen means something like: you understand?

Yeah, breda is brother, mek is like brother as well. Seen means understood/understand? Bumbaclot is jus a cuss word, it means arsewipe

Bredren- Fellow friends and collegues; brothers in unity.

Dun know- Don’t know.

Duppy (dup-pee)- Ghost.

Gweh- Go away.

I an I- Rasta speech for me. Me, myself, and I.

I-ree- Rasta word for “Irie”, which means to be happy.

My yute- My youth. Friendly expression of calling a friend or youger one. Hey my yute. (Hey my friend).

Ragga- The current name of popular regae music. Ragga music relies heavily on a digital equipment.

'Bumboclot means exactly what it sounds like - a 'bum cloth'. 'Breda' is 'brother' and 'seen' is a word meaning 'to agree' (sort of like "I see" or as a question like "Do you see?"). There's a nice Jamaican Dialect Dictionary here.

I don't find it too difficult although I sometimes need the subtitles. I find I can figure a lot of it out based on the context. I think a dialect like that is always going to be tough for people who have grown up in an insular environment to follow. In reality I seriously doubt that someone like Nico, for whom English is a second language, would be able to understand a word of it. But it adds a whole lot of flavour to the game and Little Jacob is definitely my favourite character in the game.

I understand him better now since I've been playing longer. I don't see his hard to understand talking as a problem. You can just go to Brief to see what he says.

One thing that was REALLY wrong with him is that if he really is a rasta, then how come he says that rum/alcohol enlightens you? Wtf. I thought alcohol/coffee/etc. is BAD in rasta; only the ganja makes you see things.

The official language in Jamaica is basically broken english. My friend is Jamaican (he's the one who sent me those Mavado songs before GTA IV even came out, Amazing Grace> LC Radio)

He's Jamaican and he can't understand a word this dude says... it's just he has like the thickest accent in all of Liberty City.. I'm sure if you know the slang then you can understand him better but it's still a challenge to understand him whether you are Jamaican or not.

Now watch a bunch of Jamaicans come in here and tell me they can easily understand everything Little Jacob says.

I'm English, but I love reggae, so I've been listening to Tuff Gong mostly in the game, but I've also been trying (without success) to find a rock station that I like. I haven't tried Massive B yet - maybe I'll give that a go.

The thing with the game's music is that if you don't like reggae there's virtually nothing to get excited about. Apart from the reggae it seems to me that the music is basically any old junk that they could get the rights to. One of the best things about GTA: Vice City was that, although the eighties music was cheesy, it was catchy and you could really get pumped up for those car chases. Apart from the reggae, this game has music that seems almost chosen for its mediocrity.
