Produced by DJ High Waistline – an alias of LA noisemaker MatthewdavidWhat Would You Say About Me? is a politically charged track recorded in Jamaica’s Spanish Town. In a short interview with Duppy Gun to accompany the release, Fyah Flames talks about the meaning of the song. It’s about the political system: “Around the four corner of the earth right now, fightin for power when they should just see a note of life, life is what we should be treasurin’, because once we have life you can take our life an feel like you can get your life back again.”
