Askmen.com recently had an interview with world famous Dancehall artist and Jamaican Sean Paul entitled 13 Questions With Sean Paul.

Askmen.com: On behalf of AskMen.com, I want to congratulate you on all your success so far, especially for The Trinity topping the reggae charts. So tell me about the album…

Sean Paul: My latest album is called The Trinity, and it is an album [that was] three years in the making… it’s also my third album. It represents the young entertainers and producers of Jamaica. So, that’s the reason I called it The Trinity. Everybody who appears on the album is an entertainer or an artist who’s been in the game for over five years, so I feel confident in their work… I was living [in Jamaica], I was looking at the tasks I had to accomplish to produce a new album, and wanted to give people back the same energy and synergy… I wanted to know, “what’s up,” and when I looked around, I saw the young kids from Jamaica. They reminded me of myself 10 years ago. So I’m working with them right now on this album.

Askmen.com: I was wondering why it was so important for you to produce The Trinity in Jamaica, but if you have more to say on the topic, then go ahead.

Sean Paul: Yeah, yeah! Jamaica’s musical influence is big, especially in the past five years in the game… we’ve influenced a lot of different forms of music, and people and genres are saying “respect” to it. I’m loving that, I’m loving that it’s becoming something on peoples’ albums. But one thing that is a dark side of that is that none of these people go back home to Jamaica to do it… and I find that if you wanted to get so-called crunk music, you find Lil Jon to work with him, and if you want a more R&B song, you check Pharrell and the Neptunes for the hip-hop, and that’ll sound more R&B and smooth. So I come to Jamaica to produce The Trinity — not to just hear it and try to do it back. So that’s what I’m doin’, I’m giving respect back to these kids. Now I’m not sayin’ that everybody in the world can’t produce dancehall, but these kids are the current vibrancy of what’s doing in Jamaica — that’s where I come from, man, so I have to give back to them.
