Julian Marley ft. Damian Marley - Violence In The Streets

By | 7 years ago
Artist: Julian Marley
Track: Violence In The Streets ft. Damian Marley
Producer: Stephen Marley
Album: Awake

The more things change, the more things stay the same—it’s been nearly thirty years since reggae icon Bob Marley’s untimely passing, but the political, social, and economic struggles he spoke about in his music remain.  Now, three of the legend’s sons have come together to craft a cut that addresses many of today’s hot-button issues while remaining firmly rooted in the genre’s tradition of social criticism.  On Julian Marley’s latest single, he and his brother, Damian Marley, unweave the spiderweb of influences that contribute to Violence In The Streets, touching upon everything from the institutionalized prejudice that contributes to unemployment to the fat-cats making their fortunes flooding hoods with firearms.  Stephen Marley backs his brothers’ passionate vocals with a classic guitar-organ groove, complete with spacey dub flourishes.  Awake, Julian’s third studio album, drops on the 26th of May, and fans can also look forward to the June 23rd release of Distant Relatives, Damian’s genre-bending collaboration with rap icon Nas.
