Imperial claims bias amongst Jamaican disc jocks following song controversy

Imperial DancehallAcclaimed Jamaican deejay and producer, Imperial has called on disc jocks in his native Jamaica to stop showing bias and prejudice after insisting they slighted a song he produced for Dancehall artist, Mr. Peppa, that has since been remixed by Payday Music Group.

The song in question is Gangster Gorilla, a song written by Imperial that Mr. Peppa voiced in 2010 on the Motion Picture Juggling rhythm, for which a medley video promoting it topped local charts. However, the song received little airplay back home, to his frustration. An alleged remake of the song, which sees Mr. Peppa team up with Bounty Killer on the Party Spree Riddim, has been garnering regular rotation on radio, something he noticed when traveling to Jamaica earlier this month to promote his new album, Dancehall Knowledge: Volume 3.

Speaking on Thursday, Imperial accuses disc jockeys in Jamaica of playiing the political card too often, making it hard for wide-ranging talents like himself to gain mainstream traction.
