Shaggy Has Figured Out How to Stop ISIS and It Involves Weed
"They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS. I guarantee there won't be any more wars out there."
Shaggy is best know for "It Wasn't Me," his 2000 jam about the dangers of loaning your girlfriend a house key when you're cheating on her, especially if she's packing a gun. But the musician—whose real name is Orville Burrell—is still consistently churning out records and touring internationally. He's also got some beef with ISIS.
Somehow, between zipping around the world and singing "Angel" to adoring fans, Shaggy still finds the time to ponder the intricacies of international politics. He recently sat down with the Miami New Times to offer his suggestion on how to defeat the Islamic State once and for all, mainly with weed and reggae.
"There're two thing you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you're fucking high," Shaggy explained in the interview. "High people don't want to kill nothing; they want to love. They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS. I guarantee there won't be any more wars out there."
If ISIS winds up shrugging off their religious extremism and settles down for a life of hash hits and dub music, we'll know it was him.
