The Reggae Tune of the Century Inner Circle Chronixx and Jacob Miller
At the top of the year, Grammy award winning, Bad Boys of Reggae, Inner Circle teamed up with Reggae Revival's superstar Chronixx for the anticipated music video "Tenement Yard (News Carrying Dread)."
"Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard ~ too much watch watchie watchie, too much su-su su-su su"
In Jamaica, a tenement yard is a shanty town or Jamaican ghetto.
The lyrics explain why Rasta need more freedom from people watching their every move and chatting their business.
Jacob Miller and Inner Circle originally recorded this big classic tune 'Tenement Yard' in 1976. Jacob Miller was the lead vocalist for Inner Circle, and the band flourished with Miller's humorous antics and vocals. Tragically, Miller met in an untimely car accident in 1980 which took his life. Inner Circle and Chronixx pay tribute to the late, great Jacob 'killer' Miller with the release of the music video "Tenement Yard."
Inner Circle's success is also attributed to the broadening of their professional skills, creating a complex called 'Circle House.'
Circle House Studios is one of the most prominent recording studios.
Inner Circle has toured all points of the globe and 2015 promises to be a stellar year for the group. Early next year they head to the Philippines and Jamaica. "Bad Boys" became a household word a with the major success of the television program 'Cops,' and the success of the group has skyrocketed and still moving up.
