| does anyone here listen to massive b sounds and tuff gong radio?????? |
Yea, I love it. I normally listen to Metal and Rock and am a Rap/Hip Hop Hater, but for some reason, I love real gangsta jamaican stuff. What I dont understand is the sound that you always hear on Jamaican documentaries and on Master B Sounds where its an echo of a guy yelling "GO!!!"
I understand Little Jacob, because I study violent crime. I watch alot of documentaries and read alot of books that have alot of slang and all that kind of thing. I'll suggest you watch something like 'Ross Kemp on Gangs - Jamaica' to catch real people speaking like Little Jacob. Theyre real people living in the slums, where gun fights are a nightly reality. I have to admit, I dont understand everything he says in between key words, but listening for certain words in his sentences helps to construct a translation. You also have to pick up phrases and slang words aswell to stop you from going "what did he just say?"
"Mek we dweet" means "Let's do it"
"Ya can't shake no hands when your fist be clenched" basically means, if you're not in the right frame of mind, you shouldnt be doing things that might get you into trouble.(I know its an obvious translation, but its very metaphoric and phylisophyical of him)
I've never had trouble understanding accents. I also find it quite easy to do alot of voices and accents myself. I practice the Jamaican accent sometimes, but its hard to get right. When me and my girlfriend go out and deal with foreign customer service people, she always looks at me to understand what the hell they just said.
