Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Mavado's song "Weh Dem a Do" can be interpreted as a message to his enemies or rivals who are trying to challenge and fight him. Mavado is highlighting that he is a "gangsta fa life" and is always ready for a "real battle." He is essentially saying that no matter what his opponents are doing or trying to do, their attempts are futile because he is ready to fight back, and they will ultimately fail. Mavado emphasizes that he is not afraid to use weapons to protect himself and his gangsta lifestyle, stating that he would "fly into the sky" if necessary.


In the second verse, Mavado further asserts himself as a gangsta and explains that he does not take anyone's talk lightly, and he is willing to take someone's life if they challenge him. He is confident that he will win any battle and that his enemies will end up dead. He also touches on the fact that his enemies are not brave and are weak in comparison to him, angered by the fact that they cry when the war starts and run away when they face him. Mavado believes that he is the stronger one and will always come out on top.


Overall, the song's message is a warning to anyone trying to come after Mavado or his gangsta lifestyle, that he is not one to mess with and will protect himself and his crew at all costs. It is a display of his confidence and strength in his gangsta persona.
