KINGSTON, JAMAICA – In an era when firearms take away many young lives, there is one calibre that may be eagerly anticipated. A piercing shot from a 9mm could very well feed the youths’ minds rather than spill their blood. That is the likely outcome with Jah9?s new musical project called 9mm – ‘message music.’
As soon as it begins, it is easy to tell that the singer/songwriter is interested in steering her listeners towards a mental posture of self-determination. Throughout the experience, and with a sense of purpose, Jah9 recites words previously uttered by the well-known characters of Haile Selassie I and Marcus Mosiah Garvey as well as those spoken by a much less recognized leader, Walter Rodney, who was banned from Jamaica due to his liberation activities.
The nine tracks of this absolutely free download are lyrical bullets aimed directly at youngsters who will benefit from the guidance provided. The entire experience is peppered with the voice of Rory StoneLove, who actively promotes Jah9?s message music as a critical sound of the future. Indeed, 9mm is not only a preview of the artist’s 2012 album. It is also a preview of a new breed of revolution music that will pave the way into the foreseeable future, bringing with it not death, but new life.
