Four decades later a new Rasta rebel steps up on the said Inner Circle riddim, and delivers his message, with what amounts to a whole new song subtitled "News Carrying Dread." Not only are the rhythm track and the message of the new tune in tune with the original, a sample of "Jakes" voice also rings throughout. The 2015 release, which marks the first time the reggae supergroup has re-presented a song by their foundation vocalist, will premiere this Monday on Mass Appeal.
Late last year Boomshots caught up with Chronixx and Inner Circle co-founder Roger Lewis at the band's state-of-the-art Circle House Studios, where the song was made. "Me find Jacob, Red Hills Road," Says Roger Lewis with conviction in his voice. "All my life I tell you-and I don't say this becauxse Chronixx is here-I don't see a youth who touch me like Jacob."
The good vibes are clearly mutual between the veteran band and the young singer. "We always have a great respect for the Inner Circle family, even before we really met up physcially," says Chronixx. "Is a great thing. Is a very very great thing. To see say them music can still be revamped. Because we are the originators, I and I, from that time till this time."
