New York, New York - Red, Gold & Green three colors, which signifies so much to so many. For Kabaka Pyramid and Damian “Jr Gong” Marley it was worthy enough to unite their musical synergy to highlight the significance of the colors to Rastafari tradition and Reggae music. Set to release Friday, July 22nd, Red, Gold & Green is brimming with the nuanced context often missing from the message. This missing context is remarkably packed into immaculate verses for which both artists are well known. Not only is Damian Marley featured, but he is also the producer of this single.
