Top Ten Social Commentary Songs 2015

One thing about Reggae Dancehall genre is that the artists have never been shy of confronting societal ills or commenting on issues that directly affect society. Its a long standing tradition that dates back to Reggae boldly and openly singing about the legalization of marijuana and its health benefits [which the rest of the world is only now catching up to], to songs about/against apartheid and the call for repatriation to Africa. Its music that carries the message and engages its audience. From xenophobia attacks to Tributes to refugee crisis to Child Abuse, the genre added their voice and had this to say in 2015.
