According to Russian, who is also the mastermind behind the hit making Head Concussion label, the song was recorded just before Kartel’s incarceration.
“People always hate on people who are successful. When you are nobody, no one really gives you the time of day. But as soon as you become successful, people have opinions on how you should live your life. I guess it’s because they are envious why they criticize. It’s not necessarily out of concern,” Russian explained via press release.
Feedback to the song has been overwhelming and it is already a hot item on the radio.
This isn’t the first time that Kartel has collaborated with Russian. Life Sweet was the first track Russian produced for Kartel. Since then, they have teamed up on hits such as Jeans and Fitted, Look Pon We and Get Gal Anywhere.
The accompanying artwork for The Cure (Fi Bad Mind) is an interesting one. Both Kartel and Russian are dressed as doctors preparing for a surgery.
“The concept behind the artwork is that we have finally come up with the cure for Jamaica’s #1 disease. And who cures diseases? Doctors!” Russian concluded.
