One of Jamaica’s most respected recording artist, Beres Hammond, has once again made a contribution to the industry that justifies his status therein. His latest release is a very timely and relevant record titled Talk About It.
Though he is mostly revered for the unique way in which he tells stories about romantic relationships, he took a different route in Talk About It. This song is a direct message to our young men who respond to confrontations and disputes with only anger and violence.
And with all that is happening on the island of Jamaica right now, as it relates to crime and violence, it is always welcoming to see public figures speaking out about these issues.
