Protoje - Who Can You Call (2015)

30 pieces of sliver i said that was the price

you see the value man woulda put pon the blood of christ

for Joseph it was 20 they never liked his coat

for Bob a coulda more they never liked of what he spoke

inspite of all these notes i see the pattern them developing

Morality secondary to money greed and jealousy

thats how many fell you see and with that being said

i'd wondered if my brothers put a price upon my head


Ive heard that money makes friends and money makes foes

but money it is not all

cause when the dough ends and all the banks close

tell me who can you call 

Who can you call


I've seen empires fall and wither down to dust 

and all the money in the world it could not lift them up

most brilliant of ornaments crumble down to rust

because we put we faith in lust and disregard the trust

hell i know the rush

I've had the feeling take me over

the power in my hand when all the band over my shoulder

the bands of money coming in will change the ones around you 

be wise you know because it cannot stop you getting older but still

i admit that i get caught up in the game

saw the legends do it naturally i did the same

so I'm rolling round the city 

Ms. Jamaica deh den with me

Earth den pon me platter knowing all of this no matter


And do you think that with the last breath that you take 

You'll be sitting thinking bout the money that you made

houses that you lived in cars you drove the bills you paid

and yet it is the focus what we do and what we say

what we give we energy

so you spend your life a work

acting like the money will be with you in the hearse

leaving all you family and friends to fight and search 

that when you see the snakes come out and act like they deserve

like them put you on reserve

About the Author



There is an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica and industry experts and observers agree that Protoje is playing an important role in what is becoming known as the "Reggae Revival."

Leading the militant band - The Indiggnation - this powerful songwriter and philosophical thinker articulates the righteous anger of an emerging generation. Protoje reports for duty, re-establishing the standard for the decaying art of socially responsible, mentally stimulating lyricism.

After successfully releasing 2 Albums "The Seven Year Itch" and "The 8 Year Affair" which spawned Rasta Love ft Ky-Mani Marley and Kingston Be Wise; which was featured in Grand Theft Auto; Protoje releases his 3rd Studio Album titled ANCIENT FUTURE.

Protoje's visibility has steadily increased with articles being written in major publications ahead of his album release, and a major achievement was being named on BBC 1xtra Hot for 2015 Artiste list so he will be promoted across the BBC platform. Artistes were selected because As Mista Jams of BBC stated; "they're producing the quality music needed to become big in the next 12 months. It's a real cross section of really exciting new talent all currently on their A game."

Protoje has been gaining momentum throughout the world, performing at quality venues to large audiences and will continue to tour consistently with his band The Indiggnation to promote ANCIENT FUTURE especially in Europe where several tours have already been booked as they continue to spread the music to the world.
