Bob Marley Legacy Documentary Series Episode Three – Righteousness

Published

on

In Episode three of Bob Marley’s esteemed Legacy mini-documentary series was revealed today. Righteousness offers a unique glimpse and insight into Jamaican culture and delves into the roots and relationships between spirituality, religion, nature and Rastafarianism. Exploring the impact Bob had on Jamaican culture, while celebrating the influences and inspirations behind his message and music, Righteousness is available on Bob Marley’s Official YouTube Channel

Bob Marley’s ability to connect us all in his message of hope, human strength, solidarity and endurance, remains just as relevant today as they were when he wrote them. In continuing to celebrate his ability to connect and lift us all, a new animated, official music video for Bob Marley & The Wailer’s classic ‘Three Little Birds’ (from 1977’s Exodus, which Time magazine declared The Best Album Of The 20th Century in 1999,) has been revealed. Created by director Morgan Powell, the playful visual is a clever take on a classic children’s cartoon and roleplay. Powell revealed, “I figured it would be interesting to pick two well-known enemies and flip their relationship on its head.

There are lots of enemies in the world and we are in testing times, even more now, and I wanted to pose the question of what happens if you push through fear or anxiety? What’s on the other side of that? With the help of the song I managed to push through and I wanted to give the video my best shot of portraying that.” Cedella Marley shares, “This song has helped provide hope and light for so many over the years, including me, and I hope it does the same for people now, especially with all that is going on in the world.” Watch the video for ‘Three Little Birds’

The legendary concert brought together 16 of Reggae’s biggest acts, who played to more than 32,000 attendees, with all proceeds of the show going towards sanitary and housing facilities in West Kingston.

Nardo Wick recruits Lil Durk, 21 Savage & G Herbo for “Who Want Smoke??”

Published

on

Nardo Wick has just dropped the highly-anticipated new version of his smash-hit “Who Want Smoke??” featuring Lil Durk, 21 Savage, & G Herbo. The track includes a show-stopping verse from Durk, displaying the depths of his fiery and confrontational style, a noteworthy inclusion from 21 Savage reminiscent of his earliest days on the mic, and G Herbo delivering the thrilling and seasoned bars he’s renowned for. The song not only capitalizes on the virality of “Who Want Smoke?”, but also serves as a masterclass in collaborating from some of the most prominent artists in the game. Each verse builds on the next, with the superstar additions sticking to theme that Nardo laid out on the original “Who Want Smoke?”, signaling the unwavering faith that Durk, 21, and Herb have in the 19-year old Jacksonville emcee. This collaboration comes on the heels of Durk & Lil Babybringing Nardo to perform the viral record at their tour stop in Orlando, receiving an electrifying response from the Floridan crowd. Though the original song has already amassed a whopping 60 million streams and counting, these carefully curated contributions only further solidify “Who Want Smoke??” as one of the biggest records of the year.

“This next chapter of my career is to give every project I work on my full attention. If I want to be proud of all the videos I work on, then I must never rush the process. I want it to be a great viewing experience every time. The goal is to create timeless quality art that inspires and motivates me, and hopefully it can inspire and motivate those beyond me as well. I view the “Who Want Smoke??” video as the opening page of this new chapter.”
Cole Bennett

Nardo Wick bursted onto the scene in mid-2020 with a string of releases, including “Lolli”, “Slide”, and “Came Up.” Music gave the shy teen an outlet to channel his angst and was accompanied by a fast-following. Though he’s soft-spoken off the mic, when Nardo enters the booth, the raps he produces are dynamic and haunting––a reflection of Jacksonville’s turbulent hip-hop scene. In 2021, Wick transitioned from making buzzing records to inescapable anthems. “Who Want Smoke?” became a widespread hit, achieving over 60 million streams as well as placements on Rap Caviar and Hip Hop Hits. The song reflected a menacing teen with a no-nonsense approach to life and music balancing between being captivating and fearsome. “Who Want Smoke?” is a frequent soundtrack to viral content on social media, with the most recent inclusion being Florida A&M’s marching band, the Marching 100, doing a live-rendition of the hit song during the halftime show for their game against Alabama State University. Hit-producer Cardo Got Wings laced Nardo for a last-minute request to appear on February’s Judas And The Black Messiah: The Inspired Album. That album topped the charts upon release, putting Nardo Wick alongside the biggest stars of Hip-Hop and R&B. Wick followed this with the Nick Mira-produced “Pull Up” in July. In August, Nardo released “I Be Chillin”, an exciting addition to his growing discography. Throughout the run, the budding rapper has received praise from Passion of the Weiss, Lyrical Lemonade, and DJ Booth, who included him in a recent “10 Rappers You Should Know Right Now” list. Recently COMPLEXnamed Nardo among their list of “Best Jacksonville Rappers.”
