“As a musician, when you create, something special happens, so many people from the islands or Africa, from these tiny places, have created such great creative impact, but many have not gotten their shot. I wanted to honor them, my vision after hearing the beat was about creating a world that’s safe for everyone and keeping the people you love protected whether I’m taking my girl shopping, or hanging with family, everyone is welcome under my umbrella”, stated Kingston.
