Tappa Zukie's M.P.L.A. album that features the single, "Freedom" on 13thStreetPromotions.com

OLDIES SUNDAY: Tappa Zukie – Freedom (1976)


Break the chains and kick down the gates, it’s Emancipation Sunday on Oldies Sunday! Parts of the Caribbean recognize August 1 (and August 2 on weekdays if the 1st is on a weekend) as Emancipation Day. It’s a day that commemorates the abolition of slavery, but we’re still fighting against many other forms of depression around the world. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the great Tappa Zukie with his track, “Freedom“.

Produced by Tappa Zukie and released through the KLIK Label in 1976. “Freedom” finds Tappa Zukie calling for the liberation of black people who have been held captive for centuries. He flexes a mix of singing and toasting inna dub style on the track, and he can be heard saying “freedom a wha di natty dread want…” throughout. The song came around the time when black consciousness was at an all time high, and it makes its mark an important song of the times, with messages that are still relevant today. “Freedom” was included on Zukie’s 1976 album, “MPLA“. As we recognize an important day, may we still fight to break the new chains of oppression.

Thank You Tappa Zukie!

The Purpose of Therapy: A Live Well Jamaica Feature & Campaign


As Jamaicans, we strive to achieve all things bright and beautiful. Our lifestyle is one that reflects livity and freedom; that is brand Jamaica. However, what has been severely affecting our liberating culture in recent times, is the stereotypical treatment of our men, ultimately enhancing an anti-climatic nature of not seeking help — therapy, in particular. This phenomenon has been a constant discourse as it continues to haunt men in our society from one generation to the next. In our daily activities, it is evident that a significant number of males in our society who face life-threatening experiences are more likely to cover up their emotions and repress their feelings.

For many of them, this repression tends to manifest in unpleasant ways such as violence and sometimes even imposter syndrome and depression. Yet, they are reluctant to seek professional help in an effort to release those burdens. What’s even more saddening, is that many persons aren’t aware that mental health facilities even exist. These are the reasons we are taking an in-depth approach to raising awareness.

Therefore, this campaign ‘(His) tory: Normalize Therapy for Young Men’, seeks to eradicate the barriers between therapy and the fear that men experience, and provide useful information for them to receive the help. The purpose of therapy for men, as explained by Dr. Wendy- Lou Greenidge, is to ‘reshape the thought process of Caribbean perspective from stereotyping therapy to seeking professional help’.
