Many unlawful murders and imprisonments are the result and the tension between residents and Police increases at a rapid rate. The Police and their abuse has been a subject in many songs over the years but today I share a song by someone who experienced it including losing a family member. “Mama Cry” is a song done by singer I-Noble who resides in Trench town, one of the places where Police brutality has occurred over the years. In his song he speaks about the occurrences between residents and Police in inner-city communities on a regular basis, the effects of people that go through the situations, and how many corrupt Policemen collect accolades for their wrongdoings. Produced by Lanz and Christina Grand of Reggae Embassy, check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
