Reggae musician Shaggy is claiming that he’s found a surefire way to stop ISIS terrorists from committing acts of violence: Just start playing them his music.
“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick,” Shaggy said in an interview with the Miami New Times on Monday. “But right, music evokes emotion.”
“So if they’re listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they’re not going to want to cut somebody’s head off,” he explained.
Shaggy, who also refers to himself as “Mr. Lover Lover,” became famous for hit singles including “Mr. Boombastic” and “It Wasn’t Me” — songs about sex that were always quickly turned off whenever a DJ tried to play them at my middle-school dances.
Now, you may think Shaggy’s plan sounds a little far-fetched — but he’s insisting that it’s foolproof:
“There’re two thing you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you’re f[***ing] high,” he said. “High people don’t want to kill nothing; they want to love.”
He also said we “need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS.”

(Seems legit. Really, it’s a wonder that President Obama didn’t think of it first.)
One of Shaggy’s most recent singles is titled “Go F*** Yourself.”
“The song’s kind of a nice way of saying ‘Go f*** yourself,’” he explained.
He added that ISIS terrorists are definitely people he wants to tell to “go f*** themselves,” because “that’s some crazy s*** what they’re doing.”
