Nesbeth to Inmates - What Sense Does It Makes To Carry Around an Illegal Weapon

Nesbeth
"You are all in here for various reasons none of which I know, but here is something I want you to think about..." 

In a recent visit to the Spanish Town Adult Correctional facility, where he was asked to mentor and perform, Jamaican singjay, Nesbeth took time out to admonish inmates about criminality according to a release. His dream is to see a better Jamaica in which offenders can be reintegrated into society as productive and upstanding citizens. During one of the many segments of his performance, Nesbeth alluded to lyrics from his current single, New Gangster to prove how un-necessary it is to portray a gangster image, "bad and still hungry a luu (meaning nonsense) gangster.."

As the artiste seek to drive home his message to the inmates he told them, "you are all in here for various reasons none of which I know, but here is something I want you to think about. What sense does it makes to carry around an illegal weapon that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and yet can't find food to eat?  As much as this may sound like a joke growing up in the inner-city I have seen some 'supposed gangsters' walking around with guns that weigh more than them. They don't even have the energy to lift it up properly. The money you take to buy that gun could be used to start up a small business to better yourselves and your families."

The inmates showed their approval for his message and performance with a rousing applause. He then left Jamaica for Ohio where he gave another impressive performance. A video for "New Gangster" is currently in the making.
