Shaggy has made international headlines after suggesting that weed and reggae can stop international terrorist group, Isis.

In an interview with Miami New Times, the 46-year-old reggae and dancehall entertainer said:

“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick. 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. There’re two thing[s] you want to do when you listen to reggae: You get somebody pregnant, or you’re …… high. High people don’t want to kill nothing; they want to love. They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS. I guarantee there won’t be any more wars out there.”

Shaggy made the comment during a promotional interview with the Miami New Times for his profanity-heavy title of his new single GFY.

Before music, Shaggy ‘s military background included him being enlisted in the US Marine Corps and worked as a field artillery cannon crewman. He also served in the Gulf War.

The armies of ISIS still remain a violent threat in Syria, Iraq and surrounding areas.
