Nabil Directs a Dark mini-Epic for Gongzilla’s Shotta’s Lament

From the moment Jr. Gong hopped on the Rootsman Riddim, it was a major statement. For an established reggae superstar to join forces with a juggling that featured up-and-coming Jamaican artists like Chronixx, Jesse Royal, and Tarrus Riley. It didn’t hurt that Damian’s new song itself, “Gunman World,” ranks as perhaps one of Gongzilla’s deepest pieces of songwriting ever. “I’ve had that idea before working on the Welcome to Jamrock album actually,” says Damain of the tune, which is featured on the upcoming EP Ghetto Youths International Present: Set Up Shop Vol. 2.”The concepts and thoughts of what’s happening on the song. And I’ve kinda finished putting it together over the last year or so. And I decided that I would put the song on the Rootsman riddim because of wanting to support that movement and that energy. Cause the Rootsman riddim is produced by my keyboard player, Winta. So I wanted to support what he was doing as well as support that movement of new Rasta youths you see coming up in the music. I wanted to give some of my energy toward that also. That’s why I chose to go on that juggling. And we have a new video coming out for that real soon that was shot in Morocco.

Gongzilla Raises Thought-Provoking Questions About the Real Gangsta Life

Sometime after midnight tonight Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley will be taking the stage at Rebel Salute, Jamaica’s biggest roots reggae festival, which kicks off place just outside Ocho Rios. This morning he’s blessed us with a brand-new tune on the big bad “Rootsman Riddim.” The song asks a simple yet profound question to all those living (or glamorizing) the gunman life. “Is It Worth It?” As you would expect from Gongzilla, the lyrics are catchy, carefully crafted, and creatively thought-provoking, exploring all the nooks and crannies of a real gunman’s life, from his family troubles to his financial pressures. “Does he get nervous just like you and I? Watching out as the police pass by?” Audio After The Jump…
