Clean Cut: Wayne J Calls Out Foul Mouthed Deejays on “Slacky Mouth”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

2014_Rebel_Salute_LargeUp_Wayne_J

There’s a lot of dancehall artists chatting bere slackness right now, and perhaps just as many cultural artists chanting them down. But the rebuke feels that much sharper and more needed coming from a ten-year-old. Mini-boss deejay Wayne J made it onto our 2014 Artists to Watch list earlier this year, following impressive performances at Sting (alongside Super Cat) and Rebel Salute (alongside Queen Ifrica), and now he’s using his position as dancehall’s youngest in charge to take his older peers to task for misleading the youth.

If you’ve been to a dancehall party in New York, or pretty much anywhere, in the past five years, you’ve seen the smooth moves of Ground Zero. The crew, started in Brooklyn by Syrin Zero, has turned into an international dance family represented in countries including France, Russia, Brazil and Jamaica. In addition to dance, the good folks of Zero Nation are DJs, clothing designers and photographers. They pledge loyalty to their crew and really know how to throw a party.
