Title: Holy Land
Artist: King MAS
Riddim: Civil Rights Riddim
Riddim Produced by: Perfect Giddimani / House of Riddim
Release: January 2018
In a lyrical statement urging persons of African descent to invest in a pilgrimage to the land of their origin, rather than to other sites deemed sacred within the “Abrahamic” faiths, King MAS pledges allegiance to his African identity over a traditional roots Rhythm produced by veteran Rastafari musician Perfect Giddimani in collaboration with “House Of Riddim” out of Austria.
In a melodic “chanting” style, King MAS states in his first verse:
I & I will never take my riches to Mecca
And I will never sell my soul down ah road
I will defend I-man roots & my culture
My ancestors, the bone of my bone
Born original, triple 6 carbon
Why would I choose to be another man’s clone?
Much less to be another man’s clone
Man ah kick off the door of no return
I’m coming home!
With strong offerings from seasoned artists like I-Wayne & Teacha Dee, as well as fresh stylistic approaches from rising talent like Young Shanty & Da Real Storm, this release is sure to have lighters flashing & dance floors moving as themes of repatriation, the struggles of “foreign life”, & African pride inspire conscious vibes in the hearts & minds of Reggae lovers worldwide!
