Garrison Cinema: Watch Cham’s “Lawless” Video

October 19, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

Cham’s “Lawless” (produced by JA Productions for Madhouse Records) is easily one of the best dancehall tunes of the season, a badman anthem with shouts to just about every garrison community on the island of Jamaica, from Kingston hotspots like Tivoli, Gully and Seaview to Spanish Town and Flankers in Montego Bay. Cham doesn’t hit all of these in the video (directed by a guy called Dennis Brownโ€”any relation?) but the visual tour of Kingston is quite comprehensive. This is a rare instance of a dancehall video that looks exactly like the song sounds. Mad!
