Snoop Lion Shares His Five Favorite Reggae Songs (EXCLUSIVE)
My reggae LP Reincarnatedis in stores today. But no self-respecting reggae artist is complete without their list of favorite records. Check out my five favorite reggae songs and let me know what yours are in the comments section.
Steel Pulse, “Roller Skates”
“Life without music I can’t go go…” pretty much sums up the way I feel about this song. It reminds me to always explore and keep my ears open to new music, genres and artists.
Gregory Isaacs, “Rumours”
A real classic song from Gregory Isaacs that’s just an overall feel good track that makes me happy.
Snoop Lion, “No Guns Allowed”
Of course this song means a lot to me. Not only is it featured on my Reincarnated album and features Drake and my baby girl Cori B, but it’s a strong message that our nation needs right now with all the tragic events occurring. We need a song like this to help spread the message of “non-violence” and the bring peace, love and unity to our communities all over the world, which is the theme throughout my entire project.
Peter Tosh, “Legalize It”
The message is in the title!! JAH RASTAFARI!
Bob Marley, “Redemption Song”
This is poetry at it’s best. The almighty Bob Marley inspires me on a daily basis and couldn’t have said it better — “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds.”
