New York-based reggae singer Ras Slick said he is not seeking financial gains but rather empowering the minds of listeners with his music.
He is currently promoting his latest single No Shackles And Chains. The track was self-produced on his Kloud Slick Records imprint and released on January 13.
“No Shackles and Chains is a timely single, which decries the unyielding efforts of the powers that be to enslave people of colour. My objective is to let the public realise that through unity we can overcome the past and build our nation on the foundation of strength and truth,” said Ras Slick.
No Shackles And Chains is available on all major digital media outlets and is being distributed by Tune Core. Shot by A-Roll Production, the accompanying video will be released on March 22.
“Since the release of this track, persons are gravitating more to the message I am sending. Based on the radio play on several popular stations throughout the Caribbean, US and Europe, I believe that my message is being both received and appreciated by the massive. I am here to fight against oppression and negativity surrounding our people in an attempt to help build them mentally,” said Ras Slick.
Born in Westmoreland and a graduate of Frome Technical High School, Ras Slick (given name Sylburn Rowe) migrated to the United States six years ago.
He is currently working on his album titled ERA, The New which will debut in summer 2017. His other tracks include My Life, Hold On Me and Cannabis Specialist.
