TARRUS RILEY: VIDEO UFFICIALE PER “GRAVEYARD”

Cimitero, questo significa “Graveyard”, titolo registrato da Tarrus Riley lo scorso anno sul Moscow riddim della Head Concussion.

Lyrics tetre, pessimiste e a tratti rassegnate, uno stato d’animo che l’artista condivide con molti in Jamaica o almeno con coloro che sono sempre più convinti che nulla si possa fare contro la spirale di violenza che affligge l’isola.

Un’atmosfera che di certo si stacca dal sole e dall’ottimismo che solitamente Tarrus Riley diffonde con le sue canzoni, eppure così maledettamente vicina alla realtà di tutti i giorni.

Per “Graveyard”, che in Jamaica è diventata una hit e ha suscitato dibattiti, arriva il video ufficiale.

Lyrics:

A weh the badman dem deh?
Rvssian!
?? leggo that, you hear me a say?

Grants Pen man nah go grant you no pardon
Tivoli man mek Meadowrest turn your garden
Junglist a go well off, from dem born and

The wickedest man dem live down in graveyard

Inna Miami, wickedest thing ‘pon the street

Better you love life, better you live right
Hey, lowe the gang and the crew, and find a nice wife
