recording artist Mr. J addresses the menacing scourge of gang violence
in his new single
No Gang Business.
"New Providence has seen a surge in
violence resulting in horrific scenes of blood shed, leaving the streets
of the capital akin to the ground from which Abel's blood cried out to
the Lord. Schools around the island has become plagued with gang
violence, leaving students and staff in great pusillanimity. Serious
injury and death has left family members, friends and loved ones weeping
like Rachel, without consolation."
No Gang Business
warns of the evil hold that gang affiliation grips members with,
dragging them down a path that leads to hurting others, killing others
and even the inevitable imprisonment or death of such members. Mr.J
warns that death may even come to members who attempt to distance
themselves from such organizations. To escape, some may have to move out
of their country of abode to a place free from gang association.
J is hoping that his message reaches far and wide across the
archipelago, bringing change among the youth in particular, who have so
much to look forward to in the future. As Dr. Myles Munroe once said, "
the greatest tragedy in life is not death but a life without purpose."
Mr. J wishes to inspire the youth of the nation to live with purpose and
not self destruction.
