Jah 9 set to released her Sophomore album 'Rebellion this Summer 2014


Reggae singer, Jah 9 has announced the impending release of her sophomore album, Rebellion this summer as she looks to build on the buzz she garnered with her strong debut effort, New Name last year, reports Tuesday say.


It was with that first album’s lead single, New Name that made the Rastafarian songstress a household name within Reggae music in 2012, one of the main faces among a plethora of new stars to enter the genre’s framework that year. Now, she hopes to recreate that magic with Rebellion, which will feature more of jazz-on-dub style music that made her first album stand out while also showcasing songs filled with socially conscious lyrics.

"Many people don't really have exposure to the words of His Majesty, so it's important to present his words. I put them in context they (the people) can understand, she told the Jamaica Gleaner in a report published Tuesday.

Despite this album being the second to come out from Jah9, she insists she had been working on this project as far back as 2007, but decided not to release it as she wanted to learn more about herself as a person.

In the meantime, Jah9 is promoting her recently-released mixtape, For the Love of Kush, a project she is using as a way to advocate for the legalization of marijuana amidst the government’s consideration to decriminalize the herb. She hopes the mixtape will help spread knowledge about the nutritional benefits of the drug, admitting her cause is personal after losing a brother to leukemia when she was nine years old.

"There are many people, in Jamaica in particular, who suffer from a set of diseases that plague people on this side of the world. Herb is medicine and we should capitalize on its use," she said.

"We'll see how legislation and discussion in Jamaica can progress a little more quickly now, but the reality is that there is still oppression on marijuana here.”
