‘Take It, sums up the world’s concept, putting money before life, not of Jah Jah, the almighty God, Rastafari,’ says the band about this song.
With its cascading piano intro, ‘Take It’ reprimands those who prey on the weak selling drugs on street corners, likening them to stockbrokers gambling with their lives for money ‘destroying and polluting the weak’. It accuses the rich of putting the poor in chains playing games with their lives, influencing and inveigling them into ways that bind them into poverty. Often, they end up homeless with no roof over their heads struggling to make ends meet or using drugs to forget the poverty that they find themselves in.
The message is clear next time you see someone down on their luck do not just walk past them and leave them in the gutter. Pick them up, help them by at least taking them to a place where they can get the assistance that they need.
With this new song ’Take It’, Black Roots signals the start of a journey that will culminate with the release of a new album on 2nd November 2018 called ‘Take It’. It is the first of 3 digital only single releases that will showcase the album before it comes out this autumn on Vinyl, CD and Digital Download.
