Spiritual salutes 'Children of the Revolution'
Reggae artiste Spiritual is encouraging the world to make way for the conscious revolution being promoted in music from Jesse Royal, Chronixx, Protoje, Kabaka Pyramid, Jah9, Empress Sativa, and himself.
"Welcome the children of the revolution working as a part of Jah Jah plan," chants Spiritual in his newest single, Children of the Revolution, released yesterday.
Spiritual said that "the track is paying respect to all Jah children fighting the revolution, so it's bigging up the youth of today".
With the release of Children of the Revolution, Spiritual's aim is "to respect the young ones coming up in this genre, and the ones who know the genre already can appreciate it more," the artiste shared.
Warrior King takes aim at crime
Warrior King is attempting a musical comeback locally. The singer recently released Nuh Fraid, which he says delivers a playful blow on the gangster culture in Jamaica.
"We ah try tell the people fi overcome fear because we are children of the Most High, so no weapon that is cast against us shall ever prosper," he said.
"Everybody knows that the work takes me all over the world more time, but it is always a pleasure to be home in Jamaica. But since I have been back this time around, I really realise how bad the crime is. The situation in Montego Bay is very sad and people are living in fear; and It is not just Montego Bay, it is affecting the whole of Jamaica.
"The problem is hardening our young, and I want to do what I can to inspire people through music," shares the artiste, often times referred to as a 'humble lion' by his fans.
