Santia, is this YOUR Lil Rick, or not?
“If you don’t like how we talk, now fuck off”
(and that’s the best of the lyrics in the song “Fuck Off”)
Santia Bradshaw is the hopeful BLP candidate for St. Michael South East, sometimes lawyer and all the time owner of Pyramid Entertainment Management Inc., an artist representation and booking agency. Her company currently represents some of the leading entertainers and deejays in Barbados and across the region – including “Lil Rick”.
An MP3 is going viral with young folks across Barbados. The email it comes with says it is the Pyramid artist “Lil Rick”.
It sure sounds like Lil Rick to us and a whole lot of people – but maybe it’s a clever imitator sent by a rival to do damage to Santia Bradshaw, the BLP and/or Lil Rick. Considering the song has probably been shared thousands of times already and glorifies violence, drugs and a kind of rape – if it isn’t refuted, explained or handled it will be damaging to Santia Bradshaw’s political and legal career. That is a for sure.
Matter ‘a fact, if Santia Bradshaw knowingly had anything to do with the song she’s lost the vote of anyone in our home and anyone we’ve spoken with. If it is Lil Rick and Santia didn’t know about it, that’s another thing. She’ll now be judged on how she handles the event.
This is one of those times where a politician has to step up immediately and either confirm or deny, and then tell us what they think and what they are going to do about it. Maybe Bradshaw and her company had nothing to do with the song. Maybe Lil Rick did it himself. Maybe it’s not Lil Rick – but it sure sounds like him to us.
We’re all reasonable people. If this is Lil Rick and it was done without Santia Bradshaw’s knowledge and she disagrees with it, she has many options and we’ll trust her to handle the situation.
The two things Santia Bradshaw can’t do: 1/ Stay silent. 2/ Say that she doesn’t know if it is Lil Rick or not. Of course she can ask him and get back to her public.
It’s as simple as that.
Thanks to about 30+ people who sent the email and the song to BFP.
