Tarrus Riley plea for an end to gun violence in his powerful new single “Graveyard.”
The reggae crooner is notorious for his lovers rock single but for this track he switch things up while singing over Rvssian’s Cremlin riddim. The dancehall also features appearances from Vybz Kartel, Chan Dizzy, Shawn Storm, and Kalash. “Better yo love life, better yo live right, low the gang and the crew and go find a nice wife, badness a no nice life a no nothing fi we highlight funeral nine night, graveyard,” Riley sings.
The cut starts out with some footage of fishermen coming in from the sea in Morant Bay with their catch, but fish was not the only thing they brought back from the sea. One of the men went back to the boat and took up a high powered gun stash into the side of the vessel.
Tarrus Riley sings the lyrics from an abandon home while footage shows a man with the same gun in his hand running from someone before his bullet riddled body lay lifeless on a gully bank. The power single is accompanied by an equally powerful video, watch it below.
