.@Jah9 Gives Us Strong Words & Beautiful Music In “Note To Self” Short Film


When Jah 9 speaks, many will listen. With a career that has been well-regarded and respected, she continues to elevate to higher heights. With album #3, “Note To Self” seeing a release date, she gets in her creative bag to give us the “Note To Self” Short Film.

Directed by Fernando F. Hevia and Samo Kush, Jah 9 dives into the theme of self-awareness through her combination of Music and Art into a beautiful experience that runs for 13 minutes. She shares that, “Getting to know one’s self can seem like an obscure pursuit, but the study is indeed rewarding. Get intimate with your boundaries and the ways in which your essence is contained. In many ways, surviving can be like a war against a vast unknown world, it will prove invaluable having an intimate understanding of yourself and the materials, talents, flaws and gifts you are given. A proper inventory is key. The Note To Self documentary gives context to the album which I do my best to share myself in this state of consistent inventory management,” Jah9 states. “These themes and transitions are visited on the songs throughout the album, and then revisited in narrative form through this documentary. Together they present a summary of my latest effort, a self thesis.

While we all take in this wonderful showcase, Jah 9’s “Note To Self” album touches the Globe and your ears on March 13. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Regarded as one of the leading ladies of the Neo Roots Reggae Movement and the Reggae Revival, Jah 9 has quite a following and has been receiving much success over the years.

Here she spoke on her role in the Reggae Revival movement, staying true to herself and persevering, her career so far, her upbringing, joining the Rastafarian faith, and much more.

NEW VIDEO: @Protoje – I & I


Off the newly released “8 Year Affair” album Reggae singer Protoje released his music video for “I & I“. Directed by I & I & I (i’m guessing Protoje directed this), we see him and a few friends walking the streets and spreading messages and pamphlets out to people in efforts to help them learn about Marcus Garvey, Walter Rodney and Haile Selassie I. This video features cameos from Jah 9, Kabaka Pyramid, Chronixx and many others. As described by Protoje this was more than a video shoot, it was also a march that done in collaboration with author Dutty Bookman. Nice video, very clean quality and the song and idea were good ones. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
