Same Guy -
Singing about Guru Nanak:

Celebrating Guns, Environmental destruction, Consumerism:

I don't understand the words, but both videos are really stupid, I totally wasted my time seeing them (though I didn't watch the second one all the way through). The first one might have inspirational lyrics (I don't know) but the theme is really dumb. When did Dharma (righteous living) get replaced with meaningless rituals? The message I take from the videos is that it's okay to live a disgusting life, as long as you pray and wear a turban when you want something.

Here's a nicer video:

The first two videos are from Jazzy B. The second video has NUTHIN to do with the sikhi. The video you recommended has NO comparison with the other two. third video is awsome.

Prabhu,

Jazzy B is a punjabi pop singer. so, lot of his songs are towards aggression (trying to show bravenees..) and some of his video is on god, it just a bussiness nothing to do with sikhi.

Just like over here. People try to sell what ever can be sold to make bucks. Or cater normal peoples' desires.....

Prabhu,

the video is Punjabi... The second video was good in my opinion... IS jazzy B? he is a singer...
Soora is the name of song.... and it has nothing to do with Sikhism, it just song.... so if you say that they are stupid that your opinion. but I like the video . IT JUST A SONG....

I just cannot tolerate such videos.This is just commercialisation for making quick bucks.Only Gurus's Baani gives peace and complete guidance to all humanbeings.We have to read ,understand and follow what is written in Guru Granth Sahib.
Wahegur ji ka khalsa !
wahegur ji ki Fateh!

My only point is that all these videos contrast a lot.
The second video, like most rap videos, is totally disgusting. This world needs less consumerism and violence including in our 'entertainment.' We should not celebrate Hummers and the use of guns with abandon. These images shown throughout our media celebrate that which has the power to completely destroy this earth and all people.
I feel used watching this same guy who acts disgusting in one video sing about Guru Nanak in another. He seems to have allegience only to money not Dharma (righteous living).
