[RASTAMAN INDIGNATION] If it seems like the righteous anger and political consciousness that once defined the sound and soul of reggae has all but disappeared now, it was even worse in the late 1980s, when a teenage Anthony B started making music out of the Kingston suburb of Portmore. Back then, just a few years removed from the deaths of Bob Marley and Peter Tosh, the new crop of artists coming out of Jamaica were more interested in delivering misogynist sex rants than chanting down Babylon. But as a devout Rastafarian and fervent admirer of both Marley and Tosh, Anthony couldn’t allow himself to betray reggae’s revolutionary heart. Over the course of more than 20 albums—including last year’s aptly named Freedom Fighter—the former Keith Blair has kept the fire burning, reminding people with his fierce live shows that reggae isn’t all granola and tie-dye.
