Law X’s beef with the British actor, Aml Ameen (Yardie, Inside Man 2) stems from Ameen being a character in Law’s hip hop drama series “When Day Gets Dark” which is now available on Amazon Prime and Youtube. In the song “Generational Leader” Law X uses the crab in a bucket metaphor to illustrate that his once former associate, thinks and moves with the mentality of a crab. The metaphor refers to the behavior noted in crabs when they are trapped in a bucket. While any one crab could easily escape, its efforts will be undermined, ensuring the group’s collective demise.
In the music video, Law X can be seen befriending a live crab, placing him in a bucket and naming him Aml in the epic diss song of 2019. The title “Generational Leader” came from a real life text message conversation between Law X and Aml Ameen where Aml refers to himself as a “Generational Leader.” The term refers to someone who has made a prominent effect on his or her generation for generations to come. For example, MLK, Malcom X, Tupac Shakur, Barack Obama are all generational leaders. However, Law doesn’t think Aml’s name belongs on the same list with lines like “You starred in some movies, people still don’t know your name” referring to Aml Ameen’s movies such as “The Butler“, Idris Elba’s “Yardie“, the Netflix film “Sense 8“, “Kidulthood“, “The Maze Runner” and other theatrical releases that Aml starred in but never became bigger than the role he portrayed and has failed to become a household name. In the text message Aml is boasting about his acting career, his resume and accomplishments to Law X as to tell him how to be an actor and successful in Hollywood films but Law was already aware of his resume because Law X had cast him in his own film series “When Day Gets Dark” a few years prior to this diss song release in 2019.
Law welcomes Aml Ameen to the hip hop diss culture and verbally assaults Aml Ameen through song. In the text, Aml goes on to say that Law X should do his research. Maybe a poor choice of words because Law did in fact do a little research. Law shot the video for “Generational Leader” in Aml Ameen’s actual birth place, Camden Town, London, United Kingdom. Law X also stops by Aml Ameen’s childhood acting school, Barbara’s Speaks Stage School in Acton, London, United Kingdom. Law even snaps a flick and posted a picture on Instagram with Law and Barbara Speaks herself. An elderly woman who is the founder of the school and Aml’s childhood acting instructor. Hinting to the fact that he did his research but perhaps Aml Ameen didn’t do his! Long Story short unless they find a way to patch this up it’s safe to say that Aml Ameen will be getting killed off of Law X’s “When Day Gets Dark” film series or replaced like Aunt Vivian in “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”.
