Law enforcement officers are furious at Alkaline’s music video, which display gang violence, ‘donmanship,’ marijuana smoking, profanity, what appears to be a marked police vehicle and a raunchy sex scene featuring a woman dressed as a Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) member.
Meanwhile, Masicka’s video sees the “Hard Ball” deejay in Kingston partying on a boat with several banging chicks after plotting with his crew to pull off heist on an armored truck in Montego Bay.
Over the weekend, investigators from the FLA visited a Corporate Area property connected to Atlas Security.
Law enforcement sources say the management of Atlas has admitted that the armoured truck in the video belongs to the company.
However, according to the law enforcement sources, Atlas is contending that the truck was sent to a contractor for repairs when the music video was recorded.
Last week, Head of the Corporate Communications Unit of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Stephanie Lindsay, revealed that the practice of using guns in music videos has been growing in recent times and is not a positive representation of the music industry.
“The practice doesn’t depict a good image, and it can send a message of violence and lawlessness,” the constable told media reporters.
“If it is proved that these props are real guns, charges can be laid if permits were not issued. We are seeing that more and more people have been doing the practice, and we have taken note of it and are looking into some of them,” she explained.
No charges have been laid, Lindsay noted, despite the fact that the issue has already reached the police’s radar.
After stating that some of the props used in the music videos could potentially be real weapons, Lindsay said no permits have been given locally for some of the weapons featured in the videos, therefore possession of such guns is strongly prohibited.
