The Redemption Project

The Redemption Project

Kingston-based production powerhouse Nuh Rush Records (distributed by Tuff Gong International) has released its latest offering, titled The Redemption Project, available now at all DSPs and streaming services. Hearkening back to the golden days of reggae, The Redemption Project is built around a Nyabinghi drum riddim — widely considered to be the heartbeat of the reggae genre and the Rastafarian faith — that inspired eleven conscious roots songs for this collection by a diverse list of Jamaican vocalists including Busy Signal, Queen Ifrica, Turbulence feat. Sunny Trad, Lutan Fyah, Tony Curtis, Kananga, Natural Black, Nature Ellis, Gott-Yo, Don G, and Guidance.

With titles like dancehall superstar Busy Signal’s “Never Get Tired,” Guyana-born singer Natural Black’s “Serious Times,” Kananga’s “Stronger,” and Queen Ifrica’s “Predator’s Paradise,” it’s clear that themes of strength, pride, and resistance are woven throughout the entire album.

An active community leader in her native Jamaica, with roots firmly planted in the Rastafarian faith, Queen Ifrica explained the meaning behind her contribution to The Redemption Project:

“‘Predators Paradise’ is a staunch look at how reality plays out in our everyday life. The lyrics suggest that there are so many people around the world who carry very dark experiences, while the people who are the ones who have affected them in that way are allowed to move about in society someway somehow so it’s about acknowledging that fact in the realness of sense.”

Since its release, selections from the album have been featured in heavy rotation on Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong Radio (channel 19) on SiriusXM, who are currently offering a free trial subscription.

Nuh Rush chief Junior Brown added “‘ The Redemption Project’ took two years in production and we are excited to finally share it with the masses.”

Queen Ifrica - Mih Love Yuh - Reggae Gold 2020

Sometimes a song is performed and that song speaks truth on many levels. Queen Ifrica’s recent release, “Mih Love You” speaks truth on behalf of many around the world who are experiencing relationship problems.

“Mih Love You” comes from Reggae Gold 2020 which was released by VP Records on August 28th, 2020.

Known for incorporating social issues in song (“Daddy,” “Serve and Protect” and “Black Woman” to name a few), it is not surprising that our reigning Queen puts the dynamic of honesty between man and woman front and center. Also included in her lyrics are the consequences to not being honest. Queen Ifrica sings: “me really shoulda tell yuh from the day when we meet say me is a girl who just love things / yuh shouldn’t borrow no car fih come look me / dat did kinda just shaky / if me did know den you wouldn’t get nuttin caw no walk-foot-bwoy can date me ….”

Although the song was released for Valentine’s Day 2020, Neil Diamond, Senior A&R for VP Records felt the track should be included on Reggae Gold. Neil says “this is a song that still brings up conversations that are needed in relationships. It’s a great song and I’m glad it’s included on Reggae Gold.”
