Dust A Video Bwoy: Watch Kanye West’s “Mercy” Visuals

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Yesterday, we brought you the story of Super Beagle, the unsung but greatly talented Jamaican singer known for the ’90s dancehall classic, “Dust A Sound Boy,” a tune itself known for having one of the greatest intros of all-time, courtesy of legendary dubplate figure Fuzzy Jones. Among other things, Beagle shared his high opinion of Kanye West’s latest single, “Mercy,” which samples and has brought new light to “Dust a Sound Boy.”: “As an artist from Jamaica, we always think or hope that one day an artist like Kanye would sample your work, take it another level to show that people are really listening to our work, not only everyday people, but people [from] far away,” Beagle told LargeUp’s Sherman Escoffery. “It’s a good feeling, and I recommend and endorse it.”
