- He draws comparisons between Motown and music from the Rocksteady and UK Lover’s eras.

There is a new single to take note of by Glen Washington and E-Dee of the movie “Out The Gate” and “Revolution” featuring Irie Love.
The song is called “Where I Belong.” The lyrics talk about the challenges of living where the system puts the youth and minorities in general at risk to lose their life at the hands of law enforcement. “Teach the truth to the youth, remember Hands Up Don’t Shoot” sings Washington.
The feeling of the record is peaceful, at such a un-peaceful topic, reflecting the positive hand of hope and faith in guidance and protection.
In this episode Dennis Brown comforts, professes, warns, soothes and instructs us with songs of praise and thanksgiving. This is a follow-up to the all Dennis Brown lovers rock mix featured in Reggae Lover Podcast #6. The current state of world affairs calls for positive messages to help us overcome, so we present roots and culture from “The Crown Prince.”
