Protoje and Mortimer Stand Up for Truths & Rights

I’m here to represent for the group of people who sit and wait for Protoje to bless the universe with new music; he never disappoints. Last week Proto dropped “Truths and Rights” featuring Mortimer and it took my Twitter timeline by storm, with good reason. The song was produced by Winta James, and I’m not being biased when I say him have the formula… the rhythms from him are good and unique.

Truths and Rightsย speaks up for the youths in society… the future of the country. As well as the evident inequality that befalls the masses. They encourage us to think keenly about the choices we make in life, and inject that a little love can go a long way.

“When all the youths need is a chance, not a bly

I thought strongly about typing out the entire second verse, for you to see why I am so moved by this song. There’s so much wrong in society, and people need to hear and see it, people need to be the change. And it can simply start by caring about each other, we’re all human beings. Take a listen to Truths and Rights.

“Until the day that my soul takes flight, Babylon will hear my voice,

cause we deh yah so fi truths and rights.”

I can’t decide if I like Blood Money or Truths and Rights more, comment below with the one you like more.

Ancient Future Live

Protoje announced the date of his next local concert, Ancient Future Live, at the end of 2015.ย I did a post to shout out to House of the Arts last week, where I posted the link to my guest post on their site, “Awaiting The Ancient Future.” It’s my two cents about the Album and awaiting the concert. Now he’s released the venue, which isย the same as his last Live From Kingston, Hope Gardens.

I must say I’m so excited! You all should know by now that Protoje is my fave Reggae artiste. So I will make an effort to be early (I’m never early) so I can be up at the front ๐Ÿ˜€

Live From Kingston

I’m happy to say last year I went to both shows of Protoje’s bi-annual concert, Live from Kingston. I went to the December show as celebration for my birthday ๐Ÿ˜€ so I’m gonna fling quite a bit of selfies in here, I was feeling myself ๐Ÿ™‚

The December edition of Live from Kingston was at the Shell Band stand in Hope Gardens. Once again we decided to be early ย but this concert was well awaited so I didn’t mind being early ๐Ÿ˜€

When we arrived a good amount of people had already arrived, the stage wasn’t raised off the ground like I expected, so we just filled into the space in the semi-circle the crowd formed around the stage. To our enjoyment one of the first things the host said when she came on stage was to come closer to the stage, we’re to feel the sweat droplets of the performers lol, so we went as close to the stage as possible, i.e. pressed against the speakers at the front.ย  Continue reading “Live From Kingston”
