“No real man can live without a woman”…
“Ill never go where the pagans go…I’ll never do what the heathens do”…
“Dem cyah get mi downnnnn”…
Powerful lyrics from a powerful artist. I have always admired, respected, and hailed Warrior King as one of the best roots artist the genre has seen.
I caught up with Warrior King recently and asked my 1/2 dozen questions.
Q-Blessings…how are you King? It’s been a while.
A-First and foremost…greetings in the Name of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie the 1st. I’m in good spirits and health, and still doing Jah work !!!!!!!
Q-Good to hear that. So, what has Warrior King been up to?
A-I’ve been putting in the work as usual. I recently completed a tour of the West Coast, and parts of the Midwest. (USA) I’m also presently working on my new album.
Q-Who are some of the producers and artists that will grace this album?
A- On this project I’m working with producers such as Suku from Ward21, Khabir, James Lord from the Irie Sounds label, Cali buddz, Bulby and my own Rootz Warrior label to name a few. The project is still in progress, but I’ve callaborated with Beres Hammond so far.
Q- A little birdie told me that President Obama loves your music. Says you and Bob Marley are two of his favorite artists? Is that true?
A-Yes. The President of the United States of America (President Obama) mentioned Bob Marley and myself as his favorite reggae artists, on an interview he did a few years ago on television. It’s a blessing my music is reaching high and low places. Rastafari!!!!!
Q- You have had major success since your music exploded on the scene a decade ago. Who and what inspires you?
A-The main source of my inspiration comes from H.I.M Haile Selassie 1st . My love for life and respect for women also inspires me. My conviction to uplift the human family out of the depressive state they are in today!!!!!!
Q-A lot has been going on in Jamaica…within our culture…within the music. What advice do you have for us? The youths, the leaders, your peers?
A-.In answer to your question, I can say there has been a drastic break down in our moral values that we used to uphold as a people. We have lost respect for self and where we are coming from. We have lost respect for the Creator, and the light we used to shine through our music and culture its swiftly dimming. What can I say? I’ve tried my best to be an example, and now I’m appealing to my peers, leaders and people of great influence in Jamaica to stand up for what is right at all times. Regardless! ……… Jamaica and Ethiopia are the light houses of the world!!!!! Thank you.
So there you have it. Look out for Warrior Kings new project coming up shortly.
