"Criminal" is the fifth video from my third studio album Ancient Future, and it was important to me that it was presented as a lyric video. The lyrics are loaded with historical references and touches on some very serious issues in Jamaica's political landscape. In my opinion, it is one of the most important songs on Ancient Future! #Protoje

Summer 2015 witnessed an historical moment, as the Catch A Fire tour saw three of Reggae's legendary families share a nightly stage. Morgan Heritage, Damian Marley, Stephen Marley, and Tarrus Riley, along with special guests, Jo Mersa Marley, Jemere Morgan, Skip Marley and Black Am I, delivered stellar performances from Philadelphia, New York, Washington, Virginia, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Nevada and California among other North American states.
Night after night fans came out and were fully rewarded with high energy familiar reggae sounds. From traditional reggae and roots, to up-tempo dancehall, the intensity and passion translated to the fans as they sang in unison. By all accounts Catch A Fire surpassed expectation, It was a tour to remember!
"No one can deny the Catch A Fire Tour went down in history as a powerful statement about Reggae music out of Jamaica. What made it really special for us on the road was the atmosphere that surrounded the tour. It didn't feel like work. It felt like we were hanging out with family each and every day. This tour should be an example of the unity we need to take our music to larger audiences. Not only for Jamaican based Reggae artist but Reggae artist around the globe." - Morgan Heritage
Trinidadian soca star Bunji Garlin and Jamaican Grammy-winning reggae artist Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley team up on "The Message," a passionate forward-thinking song fighting for the souls of our youth and the future generation. Check it!
The two Caribbean artists merge soca, dancehall and reggae into a universal sound on this world cry anthem, produced by Philip "Jr. Blender" Meckseper. They go verse for verse addressing society's illls and Marley delivers a powerful hook aspiring for change. "There is music in your soul, minerals in your soil, children full of beauty worth way much more than oil. While history unfolds, don't let the good things spoil, oh no."
Bunji Garlin gives more insight behind the collaboration."We recorded this song at Gong's studio in Florida. It was a 4am studio session after we spent about an hour and a half just talking and getting a vibe off of each other's knowledge, views and energies. I appreciate the project and artist because we were able to let both our musical backgrounds work for us to execute this. It is almost a fable to see the son of reggae legend and also a legend in his own right and artist of the soca genre meld so effortlessly."
Marley is slated to perform in Garlin's homeland on October 30th, 2015 in Tobago at Pigeon Point (Colours Of Reggae) and October 31st, 2015 in Trinidad at Hasley Crawford Stadium (Reggae On The Bay Presents Hennessy Artistry).
