Veteran dancehall deejay Mad Cobra has released a new single “Rude Bwoy,” featuring Tarrus Riley, off the Heart Beat Riddim, Produced by House Of Star.
Tarrus Riley, as usually, delivers an energetic and positive vibe on the record, while Mad Cobra throws several punches at whoever considered to be a fake ‘Rude Boy.’
At the moment, dancehall fans believed the Mad Cobra is making a comeback, but the deejay says that is not the case.
According to Mad Cobra, dancehall these days is boring so he came back on the scene to nice things up a bit.
“I came back because dancehall is boring. I do most of my shows in Europe. I haven’t worked in Jamaica in five years. Most of the big names move from arenas to small venues. Dancehall is on a dive. Younger artistes can’t deliver the songs how it sound on the recordings. Shows don’t ram like how dem used to ram before,” he told Jamaica Gleaner.
“I never stop recording. I just keep my thing underground. Most of my songs that I have are done for sound systems. I wasn’t hunting or craving airplay,” he added.
Cobra rose to International fame in the early 1990s with singles such as “Flex” and “You’re Making Me High” with Toni Braxton.
