Dancehall artiste Cobra has finally spoken out about being shot in Portmore last month in a song called 'Draw Me Out'.

The deejay, whose real name is Ewart Everton Brown, was shot twice when he was in a car in a section of Braeton Phase One. He was later admitted to the Spanish Town hospital.

When contacted by THE STAR, Cobra said that he was in a taxi and just as he was about to tell the driver to dim his car light, the incident occurred. He said the incident was followed by many different stories. Hence, he decided to put his experience in a song.

"Mi hear people a seh a woman argument and mi nuh know bout nutten like that. So mi nuh get inna no details, mi just seh mi nah mek dem draw mi out," he said, noting that the song was recorded six days after the incident.

"Mi do the song fi mek people know seh mi nah push no violence towards no so-called gunman. Mi a mek di law tek its course. Di world nah go change if everytime a man resort to violence. Look pon a simple car light, a dat a man did ago kill mi fa?"

a big lesson

In the song, which is on Romeich Records', Stage Mix rhythm, Cobra spoke about how the shooting occurred and also about the shooting of Voicemail's Oneil Edwards, who died in May.

The songs says: "No fool caan draw me out/ If mi neva smart and have sense dead house woulda thaw mi out/A true badmind yuh nuh see seh dutty nigga a try tek mine/A nuh like mi caan defend it but a music mi seh over TEC-9/ Mi fans and well wishers mi all right/ But mi sorry seh Oneil lose a hard fight."

Cobra said he has learnt a big lesson from the incident.

"We are not bigger than attacks. Is not only musicians, but all public figures out there," he said. "Mi coulda dead and mi grateful. A just God mek mi deh ya."

With the country's renewed fight against crime, "wi just hope dem (criminals) tek wah gwaan and just change up dem life," he said.

In the meantime, Cobra, who is still recovering, said he recently did songs like Judas and collaboration with Busy Signal called Cry Out.

In addition to Cobra's song on the Stage Mix rhythm that was released on Wednesday, there are songs by artistes like Mavado, Versatile, Flexxx, TOK, Beenie Man, Einstein, Liquid, Tiana and Wayne Marshall.

Romeich said Beenie Man's song Pree Wi Fa, which is on the rhythm, is coincidentally about the shootings involving Cobra and Edwards.
