Watch Sean Paul's Angry Rant at Atlantic Records

Last week’s controversial interview with UK rapper Giggs reminded us of a similar conversation Overground had with Jamaican reggae star Sean Paul in 2006, writes Orantes Moore.

Sean was in London to promote third album, The Trinity, which eventually sold six million copies.

However, at the time, the album had only sold two million copies and Sean was disappointed by the lack of support he was getting from his record label, Atlantic.

We spoke briefly about how Shaggy faced similar problems and then we asked: ‘Do you think major labels know how to market and promote reggae music properly?’

His 20-minute response gives fascinating insight into what really goes on behind the scenes at a major record label.
