Capleton has four songs in the "Dancehall Dossier" ( http://bit.ly/9fKHdV ) "Bun Out Di Chi Chi," "Whoa!," "More Prophet" (listed as "Give Har" in the "Dancehall Dossier"), and "Hang Dem Up."

Beenie Man has four songs: "Han Up Deh," "Damn," "Batty Man Fi Dead," and "Roll Deep."

(On December 5, 2009, Beenie Man got on stage in Kampala, Uganda and sang "Mi Nah Wallah," a song in which he says he wants to cut the throats of all gay men http://bit.ly/aJzNbQ )

Sizzla has three songs in the "Dancehall Dossier:" "Pump Up," "Boom Boom," and "Get to Da Point."

All the songs listed in the "Dancehall Dossier" call for LGBT people to be killed.

Here's an online list of "BIGGEST BATTYBWOY KILLING ANTHEMS OF ALL TIME" http://bit.ly/d11aQ4 There are at least 100 songs listed there.

I think that most of the eight performers listed in the "Dancehall Dossier" have more "kill LGBT" songs than are listed in the "Dancehall Dossier."
