Popular selector Foota Hype has recorded a song aimed at Skatta Burrell and his ex-lover, Ishawna, called 99 Problems. The song was produced by Markus Records and will be released next week.
Foota Hype was unavailable for comment yesterday, however, co-writer and producer of the song, Markus Myrie, confirmed that the single was aimed at Foota Hype’s former Downsound Record’s label mates.
“The concept is about having 99 problems but a girl is not one. Foota Hype just come to the studio and hear the rhythm and began to speak his mind. The song come out good and it a guh run bout yah. suh mi nuh know wey Skatta and Ishawna a guh duh, because as yu hear the song, yu know where it is directing to,” Markus said.
The intro of the song sees Foota Hype throwing jabs at Burrell and Ishawna. “Some dutty gyal gone dung a Riverton bin and some rasta fi guh trim. Dem a lick dung di gyal dem like ice cream from Crazy Jim,” he chants.
Despite being directly involved in the wording and production of the song, Markus says he is not taking any sides in the feud.
“Mi nah tek nuh side, if Ishawna wah respond, she can link mi for the rhythm. For the first time doing a song, Foota Hype did very well and sound better than nuff man first effort,” he said.
99 Problems is featured on Markus Records Syndicate rhythm compilation, which will be released next week. The compilation will also feature songs from Assassin, I-Octane, Bounty Killer, Jahazeil Myrie, Bryka, Markus Myrie, Elephant Man and D’East.
