Bunji Garlin & Damian Marley – “The Message” (Video)

blame it on JES7 June 25, 2016

Bunji Garlin and Damian Marley team up for a conscious new tune, “The Message,” designed for the youth and elders who have mastered compos mentis — touching on everything from religion, the world being inundated with “knives and guns and murderous gimmicks”, as well as the omnipresence of police brutality.

Shot in Bunji’s native island of Trinidad, the video features cameos from Popcaan, Sizzla and more. “The Message” will appear on the upcoming annual Reggae Gold 2016 compilation, while the single can be purchased now on iTunes.

Can I walk round a Half Way Tree
With nobody else but me With Cash inna pocket and nobody a
Watch it and nobody a target me
Well it must be the deep blue seas tha spread to the bun and the cheese
That make everybody up inna the island waan grab up something and squeeze
Can you imagine how the sword dem sharp
Man a hunt fi the bake and shark
Should a heed advice when the place did nice
That a before the whole thing start
Now every man stop tek talk and every man start think dark
Out in the street blood spray like when Juve a morning cork
Long time Kingston tell we to put down the gun
From Port of Spain to Hellshire
Don’t get caught up making people head road round like Michelin tire
From grandmother bawl and grandson a fall your soul going to burn in fire
