Having lost a sister to domestic violence four years ago, deejay D-Lexx pours his heart into his latest single Senseless Youths.

"I hope the message can be heard around the world. It’s like the men are senseless... Dem just a kill of the women dem. It make a lot of people ‘fraid fi even go street. It’s like Jamaica nuh nice again," he told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

"What is happening in Jamaica right now is just bring back sad memories for me personally. So mi just a tell di killer dem fi stop, because a man cut my sister throat. Mi nuh want nobody else fi lose a loved one like that."

Senseless Youth is produced by Audiotraxx Production and was released on March 6.

According to D-Lexx, Senseless Youths also has a word of advice for parents and females in relationships.

"The song’s intro is an actual friend mine, Betty-Ann Allwood, telling me how scared she is even to go to school because of the current trend... so Senseless Youths has a realness about it," he said.

Last year, 24 women were killed due to domestic violence.

The emerging deejay said the single is gaining some amount of traction and a video may be in the works.

D-Lexx (real name Shamari Dennis) hails from Old Harbour in St Catherine.

His other singles include Forgiveness, The Gold, Party Vibes, and Real Friends.
