In the end, all issues seemed to have been resolved, as Emile moved forward and released his album, The Lover/Fighter Document on Oct. 9th. On top of the social protest song “Heaven Help Dem,” the album features contributions from Murs, Buckshot and more. Purchase the album on iTunes and press play on the video “Hi-Lo” up top.
