Breadfruit by Shaft | Soca

Blended images via Bing Images.

This is a re-post from 2011 with a few changes; the song was done for the 2012 carnival. This was (at the time of the original post in 2011) and still remains one of my favorite songs. This is a wicked double-entendre track. It came back to me when I saw Shaft's name appear in the lyrics of a song produced by De Red Boyz. You deserve to rekindle this memory... enjoy!

From the 2011 post:

I should have posted this song earlier but none of that matters now; I guarantee you will enjoy the melody and lyrics. What the hell, I like it, and I am certain you will groove to this track - well done Jason "Shaft" Bishop!
"Stick it up a lil harder, more to the left, more to the right"... Now this song caught me by surprise and to be honest I like it. We are talking about Jason "Shaft" Bishop's music and the song title is "Breadfruit".

I appreciate the music - it is very catchy, I like the lyrics - tricky and sneaky I must say, I enjoy the singer's voice (strong and secure sounding voice/put on your headphones and listen) and the music itself really wants you to move and sway. When it comes to "oil-down" you have to love breadfruit. Although there is a good take on double-entendre in this song, some might say, "not so fast Santiwah, this song isn't clean." I listened to it several times (mainly because I like it) and to make sure the double-entendre is accurate. I can't fault the lyrics or the singer for this song; it is 'slick and on the mark'!

I have had to 'chook' breadfruit from my neighbor's tree and to tell you the truth the singer was on the mark with his rod. However, I never had anyone tell me to stick it up harder or further. If I did, then I would have been better at picking breadfruit (wink, wink). Come on, it is an excellent song with a catchy beat - thumbs up to Shaft and his production team!

Here is a clip from the Trinidad Guardian Newspaper that should be of interest to you since it provides some information about 'Shaft':

"You may not know it, but Jason Bishop, aka Shaft, is making music lovers fall in love with Soca again. He is the holder of the creative pen that gave Machel Montano Hard Wuk, Destra Garcia Cool it Down and Welcome Back, and Patrice Roberts Give Him and Mas and Wining. But it didn’t end there. Bishop is also responsible for Denise Belfon’s Dance and Dingolay, Megan Walrond’s Posse, and Farmer Nappy’s Flirt—all of which seem to be mashing up in the fetes and receiving much attention on the nation’s radio stations."
