He's Psycho!

"Bay Badness" yes that's what's trending now as the new Dancehall most talked about artist Tommy Lee step forward.  "Gaza Man Craziiipsycho!" are the slangs on the tip of the lips of almost every dancehall fans these day.  Gaza fans saw it coming and got even more excited when news emerged that Tommy Lee is one of, if not the artiste, whose performance at the recent Reggae Sumfest 2012 event , Dancehall Night showcase was most highly anticipated and well received.  

The word in the streets and all around Portmore where Vybz Kartel's empire gain it notoriety, is that Tommy Lee has taken the baton from Popcaan.  The crowd's reaction to his entry upon Reggae Sumfest stage last Thursday July 19, 2012 and overwhelming interaction and participation during his entire performance proves it could very well be.  But it is important to note that Montgeo Bay is Tommy Lee's stomping ground, his hometown.  Another interesting fact is that his impact on Dancehall at this time could very well be un-matched considering, he is what Kingstonians would call their fellow Jamaicans who reside in rural parishes of the island, a 'country man,' from "the second city.  Has there ever been a major Dancehall star in Jamaica that emerge from the second city? 

He's got people repeating his slangs, a crazy image, sporting the popular America's Best Dance Crew Jabbawokeez masks, and received the 'pat on the back' by the incarcerated but loved Dancehall Superstar, Vybz Kartel.  "Gaza Man Craziii, psycho!"
