@Protoje Puts A Red Alert On Injustice With “Blood Money”!


Protoje really had our attention in 2016.

With the release of his “Royalty Free EP”, appearances at Coachella, his launch of the “New Wave” concert series, and other various happenings, people are still asking if he’s dropping a follow up to the outstanding “Ancient Future” album anytime soon. While no word on that yet, Protoje has been feeling a lil on the crimson side late last year and it now manifests itself as his 2017 debut single, “Blood Money“.

Words by @Sef_Jo x @SwadeDaVillain

As Winta James did profoundly handling production of this extremely new track, Protoje sees BLXXD in his eye as he lifts the covers off of Corruption, Classism and the Injustice in Jamaica. On the Island, certain names can get you very far. Whilst on the flipside those very names could have been a part of illicit activities back in the day. It is so very important that we have someone like Diggy who understands the root cause of all this injustice that faces Jamaica and is able to express it so well musically. The revolution is nigh!

Dropping another selection off his “Ancient Future” album today is Reggae artist, Protoje.

A single that makes you go back to the history books to learn about Peter Tosh, Free I, Leonard Howell, Dutty Boukman, and more. Amazing comic book styled cover art by 1ndividual out of Trinidad.

Now here is something appealing to the eyes! Top Jamaican Illustrator Taj Francis recently collaborated with Reggae acts Protoje and Chronixx, and Producer Winta James to craft an Audio-Visual EP titled “TENFOLD:Opus“. The EP is a collection of Audio-Visual pieces that interprets the works of the Musician, Producer and Artist. Titled “Who Knows Dub“, this piece was inspired by the duality of inner peace and anxiety. If you’re not familiar with Taj Francis, he is the person behind the artwork for Protoje’s albums, Green Lion Crew’s “Rough Road”, and many more.
