The newest recruit on the Marley-owned Ghetto Youths International label Black-Am-I teams up with I Wayne, one of today’s most pivotal figures in roots reggae, on the I&I Tour that spans over 30 cities across the United States throughout October and November 2014. In Rastafarian culture, I&I represents the oneness between the human and the divine, so the title only seemed fitting for two of Jamaica’s hottest roots reggae artists who are spreading the conscious movement.
This past summer, the culturally-inclined reggae singjay performed as one of the opening acts for Damian Marley, performing at large scale music events such as the California Roots Music and Arts Festival in Monterey, CA. Along with embarking on the I & I U.S. Tour 2014, Black-Am-I will perform on Oct 20 with Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Julian Marley, Shaggy, Sean Paul, Bounty Killer, Jah Cure, Busy Signal, Etana, Wayne Marshall, Jo Mersa, Christopher Ellis and more on the Welcome to Jamrock Reggae Cruise.
Black-Am-I recently dropped his new single “In The Ghetto,” which will be available on the upcoming compilation Ghetto Youths International Presents Set Up Shop Volume 2.
