Dancehall artiste Chronic Law is upset that hackers have taken over his Instagram, email and Youtube pages and are attempting to extort him for US$10,000 to regain control of the pages. 

"Last night, mi forward in and realize say dem hack mi email, and ah say mi fi pay dem $10,000 US fi get it back and then now dem a remove mi video dem one by one from YouTube, dem all a send mi video as dem a delete it. De man dem a try mash up mi career," a frustrated Chronic Law told Loop News reporter Claude Mills. 

"Dem a remove the songs dem with the most views too, like Hilltop, Government and Circumstances from YouTube. Jah know," he said. 

The hacker even boasted that "I didn't hack the page, I guess the password, anyways I texted to make a deal if you want that deal, let me know".

The artiste is the latest dancehall artiste to have his page hacked, joining a list that includes Bounty Killer, Renee 6:30, and Shauna Chin.
