Focused on smuggling the message of righteousness, justice, awareness through his music, Kabaka Pyramid is adamant on delivering a potent type of music to listeners. Too often the music with a message of upliftment isn’t shared and often silenced from the masses, therefore he is prepared to push it like a contraband.
Off his debut album the infectiously catchy Reggae title track, Kontraband, produced by Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, delivers the true essence of what Kabaka Pyramid album represents. The video, directed by Eric Coleman, was captured in the desert of California and shows both Damian Marley and Kabaka Pyramid being removed from their tour bus in search of contraband. A made -for-movie type video, viewers are immediately drawn into everything taking place anticipating what comes next. Both Kabaka and Damian depict the profiling, which many reggae artists face while on tour. But it’s only music the artists are smuggling to the masses.
