One of the first Jamaican artists to enjoy crossover success in the U.S. was Denroy Morgan with his funky disco selection “I’ll Do Anything For You.” Since that time his numerous offspring have spread roots reggae music far and wide in the form of groups like Morgan Heritage, LMS, and Laza Morgan. A couple years back Denroy Morgan ran into a likkle situation, but apparently you can’t keep a good man down. Since then  he’s gotten back in the studio with the Anthem Band to make sure his fans know that he’s still in it to win it. Boomshots is proud to premiere his latest release, “I’ll Rise to Fight Again.” Next Monday May 13th Father Morgan will be celebrating his earthstrong with at SOBs NYC with a few good friends and surprise guests for another edition of Boomshots Reggae Mondays.

The Roots Reggae Rulers Are Back
It’s been a long time—four years to be exact—since we heard new music from Morgan Heritage. During that time reggae has been going through some serious changes, some have even used the word crisis.

Contrary to popular belief they never really broke up, but Peetah, Gramps, Una, Lukes & Mr. Mojo have all been pursuing personal projects. Now they’re back with a brand new video to kick off their EP The Return. Video After The Jump
