Murder Inna Dancehall is a website that exposes the violent and disrespectful lyrics conveyed in dancehall music towards the gay and lesbian community.

Although you might find it difficult to understand the lyrics which are written in Jamaican patois (batty man, chi chi man, funny man, fassy, faggot), they are all, nonetheless, pejorative appellations for gays.

EXTRACT or TRANSLATION FROM PATOIS

Shoulda know seh Capleton bun battyman
[You should know that Capleton burns queers]

Dem same fire apply to di lesbian
[The same fire applies to lesbians]

Seh mi bun everything from mi know seh dem gay
[Say, I burn everything as long as I know that they’re gay]

All boogaman and sodemites fi get killed
[All queers and sodomites should be killed]
