This is episode number 91 of the Reggae Lover Podcast with the top lyricists of Reggae music today. The selection features 20 lyrically potent songs. The concept was a suggestion by Kris Richards, a listener out of the Atlanta. Kris is a visual and graphic artist who enjoys listening to this podcast while he creates his art. He created the original artwork for this episode.  Visit @iandidea on IG to see Kris Richards' magnificent works. A big shout out and thank you to Kris, representing Jamaica and the ATL. So far his feedback is that this mix is too short, and he has requested a part 2. I'm cool with it. I'll go ahead and mix up a series of lyricist-based podcast episodes. This mix keeps your head bobbing all the way through. If you came to the end and thought "wait... what... it's over already?" then I know you will come back for more. Meanwhile, you have to go back and listen to this wordplay and these metaphors. Lyrics are layered with symbolism in the songs, especially those by Kabaka Pyramid. You have to go back and listen again to extract the true meaning. Rebellious Nature by Agent Sasco kicked it off. Wicked Man by Busy Signal, Wadada by Jesse Royal and Kabaka Pyramid's Global Warning complete the intro. Listen to Can't Breathe, Well Done, and also Liberal Opposer by Kabaka. He also features on The Flame with Protege. Koffee, the 17-year-old sensation, makes her mark on Burning. Protege's creativity is on display with the one called Criminal and also Truth and Rights. Over Damian Marley's On the Corner Riddim, you hear Chronixx with Ghetto People. Busy Signal's Survival from the Return Riddim by Jukebox Productions adds to the vibe. Love Is All I Bring, the new Spragga Benz tune from Sting International fits in well. I was able to squeeze in 1999's Wha Yuh Say Star which got left off of the Spragga Benz podcast. Damian Marley flows on The Master Has Come Back and Road to Zion featuring Nas off the Welcome to Jamrock album. In the next edition of the lyrical opposer mix, you're going to hear some more from Vybz Kartel. I'll also bring it very current with 2018 material from these and other new artists. Thank you to the listeners who have added ratings and reviews on iTunes. Shouts out to my very lovely wife who has been binge listening via the podcast app on her new iPhone. I'm honored to have you listen to my podcast. It's all about us reggae lovers. We have to continue to spread the culture. I focus on the reality I want to see which is positivity. Positive energy and momentum arise from reggae music. Shout out to my family at WRFG 89.3FM. I'll be dropping by the Global Drumbeat and Riot Radio shows this week to spread the word about Reggae Lover. I'm gonna drop 2 crazy guest DJ sets live on the air. I'll be talking about the podcast because I want more people to tune in as we build this movement. I'm inspiring and healing people with reggae. Look out for the episodes coming up where I'll be chopping it up with guests learn when, where, why and how they fell in love with reggae.

This podcast is a dedication to reggae lovers. In 2019 we changed from a mix show format to a talk show of the same theme. We are tackling reggae music topics, the business, and its culture. Highlanda Sound will continue to release live audio and mixes that you can access on SoundCloud. Also, you'll find archives of the previous "Reggae Lover" seasons with 100+ mixes. In a podcast, you're not allowed to use music that you don't own. Any copyrighted material that you use in a podcast is copyright infringement. One reason for our format change was to avoid negative repercussions. This season we have been able to engage with our audience to a greater degree. Thanks to everybody that's been hitting me up. I'm grateful for the comments and messages. This episode acknowledges the creativity and success of individuals in the reggae biz. Along with that, we explain the lack of documentation of these successes. There is insufficient coverage of reggae music history. We need more writers and content creators to cover the events that take place. We need to tell the stories of the individuals involved in making the music. That side of the business is severely lacking. Popular artists and sound systems have had thriving, successful careers for decades. It is very hard to find clean pictures, video, and even quality audio of many of them. Doing research for this podcast and my previous radio productions has been difficult. Oftentimes you can't find biographies, write-ups, and interviews.

It was a time when Bounty Killer was given the title “Poor People Governor” and had a streak of hit songs banned from radio airplay in Jamaica because he spoke out against corruption and divisiveness in political policies and sang about ineptitude and abuse by local law enforcement. There was a resurgence of lyrical protest songs uniting and re-energizing the dancehall followers in the streets of Jamaica with positive messages earning the biggest crowd responses. Buju Banton, who emerged as the “Voice of Jamaica” delivered words of wisdom and warning to his fan base and his lyrical ideals deepened right along with his Rastafarian faith. The same went for Capleton who was dominant and was dubbed “The Fire Man.” Capleton burned the hottest fire with a string of releases that dissected and illustrated all the faults he found with “Babylon system” and during his live stage performances, massive eruptions of energy occurred. Artists like Sizzla, Luciano, and Anthony B were also extremely influential within this conscious movement of the 1990s. The up-tempo (dancehall) riddims being produced in this era of Jamaican music offered very diverse story lines so there were songs about the latest dance moves, gunman tunes, girls anthems, and ganja dedications surrounded by songs about spirituality, African liberation, "burning out" current corrupt government officials and taboo trends, or the struggles of the poor in the ghetto. This mix focuses on the danceable selections of that period that kept it real. Reality tunes, similar in content to the roots reggae standards of reggae’s foundation era, but aligned with the most popular riddims that dominated the dancehall. This was the music that could be heard at the climax of sound system sessions primarily from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. Please press play and take a brief trip back to “fire time.” More Fire!

Repatriation is the return of someone to their own country, either voluntary or involuntary. In a financial sense its the sending of money back to one's own country of origin. I previously recorded this mix and was planning to delete it because it did not meet my high technical standard. Then the S---hole comments happened. The president of the United States verbally assaulted beloved Haiti and the beloved continent of Africa. Please look up Ivan Van Sertima (They came before Columbus) and Marcus Garvey. Hopefully, many of you listening will become, or already are, strong, inspirational black leaders because that's what we need. We need to disseminate information about our history which has been cut off, ripped away, burned, and destroyed. Our oral tradition was stopped by design. Africa is the motherland. Africa is our Homeland. I am using reggae music to teach and as you listen to the songs in this mix and you know it's a very spiritual thing. You know it's very cultural. Much respect goes to all the singers and players of instruments for channeling the power in this wonderful music. Reggae is a language to communicate with all people around the world.

Welcome to Reggae Lover Podcast Episode 85 This episode features songs from Freddie McGregor and a few John Holt anthems. Songs featured here talk about Rastafari, roots, reality and culture. Episode 49 features Freddie McGregor singing only in the reggae lovers rock style. That episode has over 20,000 plays on Soundcloud and is still a very popular. I definitely hope you enjoy this one as well, and play it 20,000 times each. This mix shows the well-roundedness and the prolificness of Freddie McGregor. This is powerful music about the black struggle, and about overcoming. I wanted to elevate everybody that's listening no matter what's going on in your life. If you're able to listen to this music right now that means that you still have a chance and you have opportunities. Even if you were a victim, right now you're a Survivor. You're surviving and you can carry on the mission of improving yourself. Don't give in to depression. There's good in every situation and what didn't kill you can make you stronger. Show love to anybody that shows you love and let them know what you think of them. Let them know that you appreciate them being in your life. If anybody is sending negative vibes your way and taking shots at you, I say cut them off. Go the other way every time the negative energy comes around. Put up your hypocrite shield and hold your head high. Don't give them power over you by letting them see you crumble. Hold your head up high, stick to your morals, set your boundaries, and continue to live your life in peace. God will bless you. That's my positive word of the day. Thank you all for listening. Sir John Holt has passed away, but Freddie McGregor is still captain of the Big Ship, and still doing his thing. His legacy is solid. Big ups to Freddie. Salute to our living legend, and rest in peace to loving memory of John Holt. Respect is due to all the friends, family and supporters of the John Holt. Please support and spread their music. Once again I thank you so much for listening and I hope you are uplifted and feeling good vibrations. It's now February. It's reggae month. It's Black History Month. Some know this day as Valentine's Day. The movie Black Panther is premiering in 1 day. This Friday is Bob Fest ATL 2018 starring Jah9 and her band all the way from Kingston, Jamaica. Also featuring the Saroc the MC and me, Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound. See you there!
