DAMIAN “JR. GONG” MARLEY gave us “Everybody Wants To Be Somebody” in 2017.

To understand the musical references in this song, you must know the history of Reggae music. One of the prevailing themes throughout Black culture is self-knowledge. Within the Caribbean, there is a particular focus on this in the Rastafari community.

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots. – Marcus Garvey”

Damian wants to remind Jah’s children who they are. He presses forward with the message that your eyes may deceive you. Be cautious not to let what you hear or see fool you. Be proud of yourself and stand within your own truth.

This song was a part of the Usain Bolt “I Am Bolt Soundtrack”. We appreciate Junior Gong as a pioneer in Reggae/Hip-Hop. We realize that we all serve a purpose for the future of our respective communities. Here is “Everybody Wants to Be Somebody”.
