After previewing some message music earlier this year, Producer Salaam Remi continues to do it for the culture as he finally dropped his powerful new album, “Black On Purpose“. Featuring collaborations with numerous black voices in music, he tapped into Jamaica and enlisted Super Cat, Stephen Marley, Chronixx, and Spragga Benz!

Having featured Super Cat and Stephen Marley months prior with the tracks “Push Time” and “Is It Because I’m Black“, Salaam Remi sought those who could help to push great messages in the music as the “Black Lives Matter” movement strengthened this year as racial tension in various parts of the world are on the rise. Chronixx can be found on “Afrikan Children” with Black Thought, and Stephen Marley appears for a 2nd time on the album with the track “Black Progress” which features Spragga Benz. “Black On Purpose” follows up his early 2020 release of “Do It For The Culture 2” which features Red Rat, Stephen Marley, Buccaneer, Majah Hype, Wayne Wonder, Spragga Benz, Ghost, and many others.

The year 2020 came with plenty surprises for better or for worse. One surprise that we can all be happy about is Dancehall icon Super Cat returning to scene to deliver new music! Like a master returning to civilization after intense training, Super Cat links up with legendary Producer Salaam Remi to give us, “Push Time“.
